A little treat for the COR Party Contingent to see you into the Bank Holiday Weekend.
Here’s a little intro to the mix and the wonderful Disco Deviant from Mr Contraband himself…
I put this mix together ahead of the Vintage Festival at Goodwood that just happenend in August. What a great weekend that was!
The mix was a pretty off the cuff round up of current tracks doing it at Disco Deviant, a mixture of new tracks from Planet Jumper, Mavis and Jamie Jones and some great edits from The Revenge (Big fave of mine), Jacques Renault who is currently on fire, Rotciv give’s Hopscotch a classy rework, and DJ Butcher and Andy Ash turning in some great edits too.
I love the whole edit thing, particularly being that I only really discovered ‘Disco’ about five years ago, I would not have known about a fair amount of the originals had they not had a re-issue via edits etc. It’s become a bit contentious recently but personally I don’t give a shit how I find out about music, and whether it’s lazy or sacrilege. Truth is I need new stuff to listen to and play out and I have a lot of good quality tracks coming my way via Juno, Soundcloud, CD, email and even the odd bit of vinyl from Phonica / Piccadilly.
I think the mix reflects what is played at our nights quite well, however the guests we have really do inject a lot of variation into the soundtrack and more often than not influence my tastes and turn me onto some new tracks.
Cosmic Boogie has a very specific sound that catches his ear. A bit different to most – he’s given me some cracking stuff.
Rahaan was a real education, playing for 3 hours I could only name 3 or 4 tracks he dropped, Boogie, Electrofunk and some real H.O.U.S.E. Kept us all dancing.
Greg Wilson has been the biggest influence on me since Weatherall in the early 90′s always happy to share track titles and give me some of his edits etc.
Danny Webb is another great DJ I respect his collection and the way he put’s his sets together, he worked at Piccadilly for years so has a broad taste and eclectic collection, not missing many classics. A real good laugh too.
Coming up this weekend we have Nick V (Mona, Paris) visiting us for a basement jam at The Globe in Brighton. We do regular Disco Deviant parties there, suits our vibe. Free Entry Fri 27th Aug 10pm – 3am.
My wife saw Nick playing at his own night Mona last year in Paris, she has since been asking me to get him over. I finally sorted it out so whilst he’s here I decided to get the most out of the weekend, on Saturday Red Greg (Ebonite) will be scooting down from London and we’re going to do a daytime terrace party at Audio together from 3-9pm. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us!
Hope you enjoy the mix. Maybe we’ll do something with the COR boys sometime soon? In the meantime you can keep up with us on our blog http://discodeviant.blogspot.com
