For the heroes mix.
The last couple of weeks i talked a lot about the Coronavirus in my shows. As i have explained here in this episode i normally don’t talk politics or world problems. But Covid-19 changed it all and we need to keep focusing and educating each other to fight it. unfortunately this week is again dominated by the virus, but i’m doing it differently this time.
Dedicated to all heroes and heroines.
I’m dedicating this weeks essential music selection to all heroes and super heroes out there. This so called hero mix or ‘for the heroes mix’ is for you. For everybody that stays inside (heroes and heroines). And for the superheroes, helping sick people while risking their own lives. I’m talking about people in healthcare, nurses & doctors. Policemen, firemen, the army and everybody else who is helping people in these chaotic crisis times. This mix is for the heroes, showcasing my appreciation for you!

Here are some highlights of the featured essentials in this weeks music mix session. All releases are in my honest opinion must-hear music. So these below selected EP’s or albums are not necessary better than the rest in the selection. These are just randomly chose by me based on my emotions while i was writing this music blog. I would very much like to motivate you to listen to the entire selection in this essential mix. You can read this page to find out more about The Essential Mixes.
TOKiMONSTA – Oasis Nocturno | Young Art Music
TOKiMONSTA was the very first female artist that released music on the Brainfeeder music label from Flying Lotus. Her album Lune Rouge from 2019 was even nominated for a Grammy award in the category ‘Electronic Album Of The Year’.
This year TOKiMONSTA is back with a new album, her 10th in ten years of time. And is called ‘Oasis Nocturno’. Of you love that underground style of Electronic Beats with a lot of soul and a twist. This is definitely a must have quality piece of work. Featuring collaborations with other great names from the music scene like: Sunni Colon, Jean Deaux, Drew Love, Bibi Bourelly, VanJess and Earthgang.
Champ – Fantasy Land
Fantasy Land, the 2nd EP from electronic music producer CHAMP, combines elements of House, Dance and Disco to create an eclectic sound full of dreamy vocal samples, analogue kicks, gritty bass lines and wobbly synths. With a back-to-basics approach, CHAMP recorded this entire EP from his home studio in Hastings (UK) with a minimal setup of just a few analogue synthesizers and an eighties drum machine.
The opening line “All I do is Dream” (sampled from Flashlight’s 1978 track “Every Little Beat of my Heart”) is a perfect introduction to the EP, which self-proclaimed daydreamer CHAMP describes as “an insight into the mind of a fantasist, an attempt to break destructive cycles and a declaration to stop dreaming and start doing”.
Fantasy Land is set for digital release on Friday 03rd April 2020. It’ll be available on most digital platforms including Spotify, Apple music and iTunes.
James Pepper – For All My Wrongs | Gallery Recordings
This is actually the debut release on Gallery Recordings. Born in the creative sector of Marrickville in Sydney, Australia a label with no boundaries and is purely driven by emotions, harmony and passion for music.
James Pepper – For All My Wrongs is a perfect match with the label and delivers music for any occasion. Whether you are at a warehouse rave, a festival, a club party, doing a workout or are cleaning up the house and you need decent music delivering you the right amount of energy. This EP will do the trick.
In this mix session i included 3 of the 4 tracks. Stampede (Of The Elephants) is a heavy hitter with lots of bass, deeptones and a heavy kick. The main title track ‘For All My Wrongs’ starts as a Techno styled track, but along the way a certain calmth of deep atmospheres and emotional chords take place. While the vocal maintains a proper amount of positive energy to keep you dancing and dreaming at the same time.
Our friend from the studio, Russian producer and DJ Newzs emailed me with his new production Meloman. As i liked the track very much and placed it among this weeks track selection in my Hero mix. It’s also given away for free by Newzs through his Soundcloud page. Recently we featured another fairly new track by Newzs – 20.02.20 which you can find here and download for free as well.
I hope this weeks dedicated mix session for all the heroes and heroines satisfies you. I also consider you as a hero being a part of the Dirty Disco community living by the same rules music for society and people for people. If you are staying at home like me, my family and all other heroes. You can consider yourself as a hero, and there for this mix is for the heroes en super heroes (the people helping others in these difficult times)
