Slightly delayed in posting part 2 of this months Different Strokes as I’m a bit under the weather at the moment, but here I am, riding on the tail of the fabulous Ex Ex Ex who contributed Part 1 of the show.
As always, please buy the music and support the artists. I’m taking a break in February, all being well I should be back in action for March. If you keep tabs on the Mixamorphosis Facebook page you’ll be kept up to speed.
For the first Different Strokes of 2015 I am delighted to have been able to share the airwaves with the very talented Nicole J. Patten, aka Ex Ex Ex. I’ve been following Nicole over on Soundcloud for a few years now, and a couple of her mixes graced the pages of this blog in its previous incarnation. With Ex Ex Ex you are always guaranteed a good track selection, with a great flow and an occasional classic or unexpected curve ball thrown in on occasion to keep you on your toes….. just how I like it!
Ex Ex Ex can often be found playing alongside other great DJ’s in and around New York City and has shared the stage with the likes of In Flagranti, Pixelife and Edit Murphy to name but a few. In addition to this Nicole has a weekly show called Aural Dreams, broadcast from Brooklyn, 10pm-12am (EST) each Thursday evening over on RWD.FM. Although her Soundcloud page hasn’t been as active of late, I’d urge you to follow and check out previous mixes that she has uploaded to her page. I’m sure you’ll find something to your liking.
As usual, check out the linked up tracklist below the music player, buy the music and support the artists and make sure you keep up with Ex Ex Ex through the following outlets -
As you may have picked up from the show artwork for this month, the guest for the final Different Strokes of 2014 is The Starkiller. The eagle eyed among you may have already cottoned on that the city in the image is Amsterdam, which isn’t just a random selection…. The Starkiller is Dutch.
My first taste of The Starkiller was via his excellent remixes which I stumbled across on Soundcloud a few years back, so I’ve followed him ever since and enjoyed his output, whether it be remixes, edits, mixtapes or original material. It goes without saying that I would urge you to follow him via the links I provide below, but be sure to check out his content. There is sure to be something in there that you’ll love and that you will feel that his work is well produced and has a well polished sound. Here is a playlist of his ‘Greatest Hits’ which you can pick up over on his Bandcamp -
Considering The Starkiller has over 80,000 followers on Soundcloud, I have to say that I consider it a bit of an honour to be able to present this exclusive mix to you, aired on my Different Strokes show over on Box Frequency on 17th December 2014.
Check out The Starkiller at the following links and buy some music from the artists included in this mix (links below the player).
What a great way for Different Strokes to say goodbye to 2014. I have to thank all the fabulous people that have appeared, helped or supported the various bits and pieces I have been involved musically this year.
Before we start thinking about this Wednesday and the forthcoming Different Strokes show on Box Frequency, I thought I would take the time to post up a mix I put together a couple of weeks ago. A word on the upcoming show first, if you don’t mind. This is the final show of 2014 and my guest this month is The Starkiller…. if you like eclectic / balearic stuff then you do not want to miss it. I have had a sneak preview of the mix and it is quality from start to finish. For my own part of the show, it’s a really mixed bag…. so I’m sure there will be something for everyone :)
So, back onto this Off The Cuff 3 mix. There is no great story behind the title of this series, it’s just really to convey the ‘make it up as you go’ nature of the mix. You can catch Off The Cuff 1 [Here] and Off the Cuff 2 [Here]
As usual, the linked up tracklist is below the player. I’d urge you to check for things with Ed Davies (aka Disque 72) first, but you can always head over to the Juno and Discogs links I provide….. Hope to catch you on Wednesday (7pm to 10pm UK – www.boxfrequency.fm)
Another show is in the bag and another month of great music. This month it was all about Maricopa, but for those of you who are interested in Part 2 of the Different Strokes show, here is my own 90 minute selection.
Next month (17th December), I am delighted to be hosting – The Starkiller! Don’t miss it!
You should also check out the other mixes/podcasts he has put together via his Soundcloud page. You’ll find a treasure trove of eclectic goodness. For now though, here is the mix he has done for my show, Different Strokes on Box Frequency… Enjoy!!
