BICEP.


Throne Of Blood is soo outta control right now. So I couldn't be more psyched to hear the homies Bicep have got an EP out on on the New York based label. Matt and Andy have been doing the blog thang for sometime now. Actually, I think we both kinda started out at the same time; and because of that quickly became internet palz. The guys have kindly hooked us up with a cut off of EP1, so take a listen and click through to the usual spots below to score the release. Killer floor filler.

Turn on your Graydar.


Graydar is Peter PleasureCruise and MisterBradleyP doing what they do best - getting faded and playing dusty disco records. Here's the first in what hopes to be a series of mixtapes and productions - if they can keep their shit together.

Another Way To Feel


Brand spanking new E.P. from Small Pyramids. Readers of this blog will know that I'm a big fan of his work - and after having a chance to DJ and hang with Zach when I was in LA this year, I'm now a fan of the dude himself! A good person making great music. Download and enjoy.

I'm back from the dead.


Head over to Darklord's site to pick up his third, and in my opinion his best, mix for the season. The track list is killer; Goblin, Tangerine Dream, Vangelis.
And the final track? Are you kidding me?!?! Brilliant.

Ingenuity Festival


Cool promo by the homies Flique Creative for an upcoming gig. Really excited for this one...playing underneath a bridge! This is the lineup for just one of the several stages at the festival - should be a blast.

Brother Louie


I am loving this simple yet classy edit from Mike Simonetti. Perfect for these hot summer nights we continue to have here in Cleveland. Louie Louie can be found on the Perseo Edits Volume 1 release from Italians Do It Better's sister label, Perseo. More info (and a webstore to secure this fine release) can be found here.

Vibin' out.


Summertime vybez from John Daly on 2009's The Soul (Part II). It's hard to top the original (Craig Smith & The Revenge still completely kill me every time with it), but this seven-and-a half minute, sun drenched version doesn't fall far from perfection.


Saturday, July 3, 2010

It just feels right.


Thanks goes to Jonah for hipping me to this 70's easy listener. Doing some research on the track led me to a cool reworking at the always stellar AOR Disco.

Made In The 216


I've put together a mix for a party I'm playing this weekend. The gig is Made In The 216; an event put on by the super hot Room Service shop and it's proprietor, Danielle DeBoe. Billed as two days of shopping, music, beer, food and shenanigans - it all goes down this weekend June 11th and 12th. So please, come out and support local artists and small business owners. It's gonna be radical.

Ok - onto the mix. It's pretty simple, actually. Side A is for the lovers. Don Henely, Nu Shooz and Jarvis Cocker. Side B is for the party people; with the likes of Hot Chip, Kano and The Phenomenal Handclap Band. I've also sprinkled in a few nostalgic audio snippets that many fellow Clevelanders should find amusing...hope you enjoy!

Igor Goes To Hollywood.


"Igor Goes to Hollywood" is the featured track from the newest Hess Is More EP, "Democracy". Hess Is More is a danish trio led by mad man Mikkel Hess who came together to create three tracks of mutant disco jazz.

Appropriately titled, "Igor Goes to Hollywood" clocks in at ten and half minutes, and feels like a mega budget film score run amok - a brilliant combination of sounds and genres encompassing disco, jazz, folk and techno. Have a listen for yourself, and feel free to check out the whole Democracy EP and other releases on our Soundcloud page.

Another stellar release from Mikkel Hess!

Duets.


I received a promo pack from Geneva-based duo Gina&Tony yesterday. Their bio reads "haunted melodies from the 50s, cinematic echoes from the 70s, snappy funky beats from a 21st century dancefloor and love whispers from Mars...that's what they do." A pretty cool descriptor if you ask me. Anywho - the pack came with an electro tinged reworking of the single Big Bang Love from The Phenomenal Handclap Band - and I thought I'd share it.

The whole EP is pretty fun and can be picked up at Juno Download.

mix02: Chris Kontos


After a brief hiatus, the PleasureCruise'n Mix Series is back. I'm super excited to have fellow blogger and DJ Chris Kontos, contribute to the series. Chris is part of the amazing blog plaidmusic - a site I'd expect most readers of this blog to be extremely familiar with. If not - get familiar folks! Ok, enough of me...time to let Chris do the talking.

"This is a collection of my warmest memories from my endless summers in the embrace of the Aegean Sea. The north winds of August blowing violently on our blue painted windows. Watching the sun diving into the water from our little balcony. The crickets singing their midnight symphonies outside our room. The smell of oil tan in my bag. The taste of saltwater on your skin. The humming of the old refrigerator that is the most beautiful sound of the summer. This is Caldera, a tribute to a place so imaginary, but so real in the same place. The island of our dreams."

It's always the same, as always.



Can't wait to pick up this full length. Was never a huge fan of Mr. Pink - but this single is MASSIVE. Hoping the album is the same...

Tonight.

Good tunes for a good cause tonight at The Mercury Lounge. I'm on from midnight to 3. Come out for a dance(and a donation).

Cheers!

Fourtwenty.


I realize I'm kinda reaching with this one. Not really sure if Thomas and Guy-Man smoke da herb - but the title of the track sure does fit with today's festivities.


Burnin' / Daft Punk (YSI)

Under House Arrest


I've had a bunch of requests to post this track after I included it in my Love In Slow Motion mix. So here it is folks. Who else but the almighty Mr. Medina could take Olivia soo, so deep. Cole, why didn't we hang out when I was in LA?!!?

Left Coastin'


I leave for Los Angeles tomorrow. Ten days on the Left Coast sound just about alright to me. A couple gigs are lined up...but the event above is unfortunately NOT happening. I'm super bummed; but had to cut my trip a couple days short. The good news is that Small Pyramids and I will be playing together at the Beat Boutique party at Kung Pao Kitty on Sunday April 11th...come get down. Ghetto dogs are on my afterwards!

That B Side.


I recently "rediscovered" this b side groover from Luca Roccatagliati and Fabrizio Tavernelli, better known as Ajello. Taken from their brilliant Over The Sky EP on Deep Freeze Recordings released in 2008. It's time to share the Space Love...


Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Yesssss.


I can't wait for this party to hurry up and get here. Not too sure how many stops Mr. Aguayo is making in the Midwest; but this show is not to be missed. Instead of posting one of Matias' tracks, I've decided to share a track included on his stellar allez-allez mix. Hope you enjoy the music, and I'm looking forward to seeing alot of my local readers at the show! PArty timE!

Mixed emotions.


Here's the first (and only) take on a mix I made last night in honor of Valentine's Day. Like most of my relationships, this mix has its technical ups and downs; but it's the imperfections that make this mix (and most of my reltaionships) special and real and human, right?




Daybreak / Mr. Monday
Cambio / Corduba
Magic (Cole's Love 4 Banani Mix) / Olivia Newton-John
Morning Bump / Afrobutt
I Need Somebody To Love Tonight / Sylvester
Andromeda (Prelude To The Future) / Meanderthals
You Got The Love (House Appella) / Candi Station
Hands Of Love (Gatto Fritto Menorcan Nightmare Version) / Rocha
Cherry-Coloured Funk / Cocteau Twins

The Closer. Part deux.


I shared a nice little closer with you guys late last year. Here's another gem I've been closing sets with for years. No matter what your opinion on Country Western is; there is no denying that this man is the real deal.

Delusions Of Grandeur


I was going to rip this 12" to MP3, but decided to keep this deep gem all to myself. I mean, it's not like Craig Smith or The Revenge are some big secret...but I gotta keep at least some of my vinyl on vinyl. Besides, the label responsible for this great release - Delusions of Grandeur - released this digitally as well. What nice guys!

I know I'm a bit late on this release (within nerdy DJ terms of course), but I just can't get enough of this track! Backed with a stellar John Daly remix and dubs from 6th Borough Project.

mix01: Small Pyramids


This year I'm going to start sharing mixes from people I like. Some will come from djs; while others may come from musicians or producers or both. I may even throw in a chef or two. The point is - all mixes will come from forward thinking artists I respect and admire. Sounds nice, right?

If you're a regular reader of the blog, my first guest should come as no surprise. Really diggin' this mix of new hits, a few old ones and even some originals from a super talented dude who's been featured on here before; Small Pyramids.

Pleasure Chest Mix / Small Pyramids

Eddie C - Hold On
Rayko - Slowtrack
The Revenge - Just Be Good to Me feat. Danielle Moore
Bryan Ferry - Slave to Love (Zambon Rework)
Roberto Rodriguez - Venus
Gregg Diamond & Bionic Boogie - Creamy (Lucci Capri Edit)
Small Pyramids - Diamonds & Dirt
Social Disco Club & Maia - The Way You Move (Greg Wilson Verison)
Joe Simon - Love Vibration (Hawk Re-edit)
Motor City Drum Ensemble - Raw Cuts #5
Small Pyramids - Check The Groove
Ray Mang - Bad Boy
Fashion - Mutant Dance Move

Zach has also been kind enough to hook me up with one of his latest productions (and probably my favorite to date); Lost In Chicago. Hope you enjoy!

$9.99


Here's a fun little number from 1987. More of a quirky italo/euorbeat sound on this one. The first minute is pretty hot. Can't tell you much about the artist U.K. - I've got this on a ZYX Heart Italo Disco comp.

Copies of this 12" release are going for close to $100 US. Who's paying that out there?! This whole vinyl, dj, producer, blogger scene we exist in can at times, be very, very strange.

Confusion and weird situations.


I busted out my copy of Oliver Stone's The Doors this past Sunday. How good is that movie?! So of course watching the film got me thinking about their music. The next thing you know, The Ghost Song is on repeat for a day. I know this will sound super snobbish, but there are only soo many Doors songs I can enjoy nowadays. The Ghost Song is one of those songs. I dug up the longer vesion. Actually, the song itself isn't any longer or different; it's more of a hidden ending after about 30 seconds of dead air at the end of the track. I've also included a short interview with Mr Morrison. It's about one minute and it is awesome.


The Ghost Song / Jim Morrison & Music By The Doors (YSI) - expired.

Interview, Stockholm / Jim Morrison (YSI) - expired.

Who's got the Heavy Disco version of this? On my wishlist now.

A great, dark man.


I ripped this track late last year and completely forgot about it. Thank you Tigersushi for re-releasing this in 2002 and thank you Joakim for giving us the Supa Edit.

No G.D.M. (Supa Edit) / Gina X (YSI) - expired.
