Different Strokes – Show 1 – Part 2 – Mixamorphosis

dL & Mixa

 

Yesterday I posted Part 1 of the debut ‘Different Strokes’ show which was contributed by The dL, so today it’s onto Part 2 which was put together by me. As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I really feel that the guests are the stars (well apart from the music itself of course) and I feel like I’m riding on their coat tails. Creating mixes has always been about fun for me. It’s not about being a ‘DJ’ and it’s not about trying to become a DJ; it’s purely about playing music that I enjoy and having a little fun at the same time. If other people enjoy the selections of music that I put together, then that is a big bonus.

As will become the norm, the tracklist is below and will be linked to where you can buy them (or grab free if that is how they are available). I hope you enjoy both the mixes from the first show, if you do, please ‘Like’ and ‘Follow’ my guests through the links I provide, and if you have enjoyed what I have done you can follow me through the usual places to keep up to date with what is going on…. links for me are on the side menu.

Different Strokes – Show #01 – Part 1 – The dL

dL & Mixa

 

 

I’ve occasionally been involved with the online radio station Box Frequency over the past year and a half. It started with the chance to provide a guest mix for the My Favorite Things radio show in March 2013, followed by a second guest mix in August 2013. At the start of the year I was given the chance to be part of the Down The Rabbit Hole show by providing a mix every 8 weeks. After 3 shows it’s all change again and I am now doing a mix show on a monthly basis (3rd Wednesday of each month).

The name of the show is Different Strokes and the idea is to try and provide musical selections from across the electronic spectrum and beyond. If it all goes to plan, then each month you will get a 90 minute guest mix from artists and producers who I love and enjoy listening to myself, followed by a 90 minute mix from me. I’m just riding on the coat tails of the guests really, but it’s all about having a bit of fun and, if possible, introducing people to artists, dj’s and music that they might have not otherwise listened to.

The first show aired on Wednesday the 20th August 2014 and my first guest was a friend that I met through Soundcloud; David Latte, otherwise known as The dL and one half of Decades. David is based in Adelaide, Australia and has been an avid record collector since a very young age, following in his fathers footsteps. I can’t speak for everyone, but I’d imagine that most of Davids following on Soundcloud encountered his music and dj-ing, just as I did, through the huge selection of high quality edits that he had posted via the Decades page.

Having caught a lot of his edit work, it was a natural progression to pick up on his DJ sets and it was the fact that I’ve always really enjoyed his sets that I asked him to get on board the Different Strokes train. David agreed and I’m delighted to present to you this exclusive mix.

Below you will find the tracklist, which I’ve tried to link up as best as I can. And at the foot of this post you will find a selection of links of where to catch more from The dL and the projects he is involved in, do check them out and give them a ‘LIKE’ / ‘FOLLOW’ if you enjoy what you find.

July Vinyl Chart

artworks-000078861521-yqqazk-t500x500

Full Chart via Juno

It’s been quite a long time since I last put a chart together, and I’ve never done one on the WordPress platform. Of course, before I jumped into switching over to WordPress, I thought it would be very simple to just carry on with my Juno chart and the Flash player that I used via the Juno website as I did when I hosted the blog on Blogger. Alas, it is not as straight forward because WordPress do not allow Flash embeds for security reasons. I will need to look into self-hosting in order to get things the way I would like them, but in the meantime, I’ll post my chart with a few of the tracks included via Soundcloud. A reasonable workaround for the moment I think.

01. Prins Emanuel & Golden Ivy – Hidden Love [Fasaan]

02. Comiskey Park – No Bounds [Narrow Gauge] 

03. Jesse Bru – Under The Night [We Have Friends]

04. Ben Sun & Mic Newman – Fall Upon You [Love Fever]

05. DJ Nature & Kuniyuki – Groove Chase/Reveal Yourself [Sound Of Speed]

06. Mannmademusic – Rough Times EP [Shadeleaf]

07. Innerspace Halflife – Astral Travelling LP [Synapsis]

08. Manfredas – Pink Industry [Les Disques De La Mort]

09. Fur – Pulp [Unthank]

10. Behling & Simpson – Slowmo Acid [Reverette]

Brett – Golden (Mark E Remix) – Free Download

I don’t intend on posting a huge amount of individual tracks on the blog, but on occasion there will be a free download that I just can’t resist sharing. This is one of those occasions.

I’m a big fan of Mark E‘s output, so anything that comes free is a bit of a bonus in my book. Grab it while you can!
