Johnson Lee :: Free Form 13.2

March 1st, 2011 No comments

This mix is where Johnson starts his decimal numbering system for his Free Form series that I've never understood to this day.  That aside, it's another eclectic gem indeed.  It starts off with Depeche Mode, transitions to some Bossa Nova, next moves on to Sting, and what do you know, it's into some funk flavor.  That introduction alone shows you how the mix just keeps you your toes from beginning to end.

Avery :: Don’t Stop The Love

December 25th, 2010 No comments

I recently uncovered this mix in my collection of mixes.  The first half of it is all disco tracks that I started adding to my vinyl 10 years ago.  I got on a kick of trying to find some of the old classics that I recognized but didn't know who actually made the record.  The first track is a classic by Class Action.  The next seven tracks jump around from the years of 73-80.  The mix then jumps into some deep house while keeping a little of the disco intro that started the mix.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!

Crazy P :: Live @ Bar Rumba Dubai

December 23rd, 2010 No comments

This is a recent set from Crazy P live at Bar Rumba in Dubai.  It was recorded December 2nd, 2010.  To put it simply, this mix is AWESOME.  It is a mix of disco, funk, house and more.  In my opinion, it's exactly how a live set should be these days.  It jumps around through various genres without clashing but instead flowing exactly how it supposed to.  If you are looking for something to groove to for the next 2-3 hours, I highly recommend this set.  Unfortunately, there's no playlist but hey...who cares when a set is this good??!!

Here's some background on Crazy P quoted directly from Discogs.com:
Crazy Penis (often referred to as Crazy P) are an house/disco group from the UK, formed around 1995 by Chris Todd and Jim Baron, when they met at university. By 2002 the band expanded to include bassist Tim Davies, percussionist Mav, and vocalist Dannielle Moore.

Avery :: Step Into The Light

October 26th, 2010 No comments

Recorded in July 2003, this mix takes its listeners on a trip through house tracks from 90s and a little bit of disco at the end.  It starts off with "Long Hot Sexy Nights" by the infamous Moodymann.  A little later is a track off the very first EP by Naked Music NYC, who later formed the very popular Naked Music Recordings.  "Babarabatiri" track by Gypsymen (Todd Terry) is a house remix of a famous Cuban song by Beny Moré.  "The Bounce" by Kenlou needs no introduction.  To this day, it is one of my favorite tracks.  The mix ends with two disco bangers by Jimmy "Bo" Horne and Double Exposure.  Unfortunately like some of my other mixes from my collection, I no longer have the original playlist, so I named as songs as I could remember.

Avery :: Tere 54

September 16th, 2010 No comments

This mix is dedicated to a special someone named Tere who loved the days of disco.  We step into the way back machine to revisit some of the tracks the rocked the club scene 30 years ago.  This is the music that house stemmed from...so in terms of a history lesson, it's time to start studying.  I selected some obscure edits of some popular tracks to put a new twist on some real classics.  Sit back, relax and enjoy.
