We caught Peza soundtracking a beautifully sunny Saturday afternoon last September at the fantastic Festival No.6 and ever since then he’s been on our hit list for a mix. Of course, we were already well aware of his super-cool edits on Authodiscotheque and A&R. If you’ve not heard his Human League re-interpretation; you simply aint dancing in the right places. Look out for a forthcoming remix of Tronik Youth’s ‘Splinter of the Mind’s Eye’ on Nein, and his next single ‘Mekon’ on Peter Herbert’s Maxi Discs. Scottish folk could do worse than head to the Reading Rooms in Dundee on March 27th where Peza plays with Dicky Trisco and ALFOS. His mix for us is a beauty; very much the sound of where underground dance music is at in 2015 as far as we’re concerned. Lock yourself in, Peza is at the controls…
Completing his third instalment for us we welcome back George Thompson in his Black Merlin guise. George’s mixes are always some of our most well received and this one should be no different. Quite unlike most other things you’ll hear; which is of course our mission to bring you interesting sounds from way out there. Black Merlin will shortly be releasing an as of yet untitled album via the Indonesian record label, Island of the Gods. Which George recorded in Indonesia featuring Gamelan music and atmospheric recordings of his experiences there.
A nice change of pace this week as DJ Rocca steps forth to pull together an eclectic session for us. Expect, dub, afro-beat, disco and of course a dash of chug. Rocca is rather busy of late, this month see’s a collaboration with Danielle Baldelli released on Nein Records, an EP for El Diablos, an edit on Paper’s new Trash The Wax offshoot and a remix on Mexico based Rude Boy. Also look our for his side project Crimea X paying homage to
