Coronavirus awareness | Covid-19
Before i jump into the music i would like to spend some words about the Coronavirus. As you will also notice in the music podcast, i would like to address something regarding the virus.
In every country governments are approaching this Coronavirus in different ways. Depending on the situation and the system of a specific country.
The virus is real, it’s here and there are no guarantees.
What i see is that there are still many people out there who don’t want or can’t take their responsibilities in this matter. Some feel like they can give a big middle finger to their government, some think they are a rebel doing something like this and some simply don’t want to be a sheep that follows the hurdle.
Well it’s time to think wisely. It’s not about all of that, it’s about your and other people’s health. It’s about the health of our society, about hospitals that can’t work up to the demand of help. We have to flatten the curve!
The Coronavirus is real, it’s here and nobody can give you guarantees. So please don’t act like you have. Its not like the flu, not even close. Next to that you don’t know where it’s going and how it can mutate.
It’s not about being a rebel or smarter. It’s not about giving a middle finger to your government. #help #flattenthecurve
Don’t be selfish or egocentric. Together we are stronger to fight the virus, together we can stop it infecting people. So once again, it’s not about who is smarter or more of a rebel. It’s not about giving a middle finger to your authorities. It’s about taking care of each other. Even when you are not sick, protect yourself, protect your children, the elder and your loved ones.

Fly Family Vol 1.
It has been a while since the last release of City Fly in 2018. Now they are back strong and in full effect in 2020 with a brand new album compilation. This new album is the first of many to come and is called Fly Family Vol 1.
The album features 12 tracks from a selection of the best underground music producers from around the globe and their unreleased original music. If you love deep house, soultronica, jazzy hip-hop beats. Deep drums and solid grooves in several lo-fi, broken beat house tracks. Then this is something you will like.
On the compilation you can find artist like: Lay-Far, NY*AK, Franc Syx, Felipe Gordon, Javonntte and Jank to just name a few. Support on this album from great names is also growing. Currently DJ’s and producers like: DJ Sneak, Jazzanova, Crazy P, Horse Meat Disco, Charles Webster and Laurent Garnier are already supporting the compilation just like we do here at Dirty Disco.
Larry Houl – From Paris To Mexico | theBasementDiscos
When theBasementDiscos label from Valencia in Spain releases a new EP, we know it must be good. It’s no surprise that we are finding more and more greater names on the label. This time they released a new debut EP from Larry Houl on the label called ‘From Paris To Mexico’
The new EP features 3 tracks that bring back memories of his time living in Mexico and the beautiful moments he experienced there. I will play you the two tracks ‘Mexico’ and Funky Plane in this weeks essentials mix. The only tracks i’m not playing but is also one to hear is the Whatever Charles remix on Funky Plane.
This weeks giveaway: A well crafted bootleg remix on Whitney Houston’s – I’m Every Woman.
That’s right! A dope remix on a great dance classic. Doing remixes like this is a fragile thing to do. People will listen very good and critical when it comes to remixing famous tracks. So when you do it, you need to bring in something unique and a lot from yourself.
In this case the remixer and bootlegger Seb Skalski and Andrea Fiorino did a very great job on remixing this track. You can ready the full music review below and download the track there too.
DJ Kucirov – Guest DJ Session.
Last but not least i’m proud to announce you our guest DJ this week. Yes i know it has been a while since our last guest was on the podcast. But ocasionally we invite people agian to come and show us their capability in selecting and mixing music. This time we invited DJ Kucirov from the North of Macedonia to show us his skills.
Who is Kucirov?
Kucirov comes from a little border town called Gevgelija in the Northern of Macedonia. On a young age he got influenced by music whilst he was listening to pop and funky disco at that time. After being very active in music like playing the violoin and singing in choirs he started to work at Gevgelija’s only radio station ‘Time FM’.
From here it really started where his love for music grew bigger and he stared to learn the basics of DJ’ing. Now he is much more than just a DJ. He is a fanatic record collector, crate digger and uses his great finds, both digital as on wax to create us a dope funky and deep DJ guest mix session.
