Every week I try to give you a unique listening experience by playing the newest releases from the electronic music scene while I guide you through the music reviews. This week I added a little bit of extra magic to this week’s podcast episode by selecting and playing two tracks that somehow connect to each other through Dirty Disco. With one of them being a track that comes from the beginning of the Nu-Disco era and shaped my love for Nu Disco and the idea to start bringing you a new unique in its own mixed radio-show format and podcast. The second track is a real ‘Chicago ‘ House classic and most probably one of the most legendary house tracks of all-time that created the beginning point of the “deep” house music scene as we know it nowadays. This track can also be found as the opening track in the House Classic special I did a few years ago. Want to find out which track’s I’m talking about? Just tune in to listen or keep on reading ;-).
Music review highlights.
Midnight Magic – Beam Me Up, 10 year anniversary with remixes.
I just told you about the extra little bit of magic that I added to this week’s Dirty Disco episode 409. It’s about 10 years ago that Midnight Magic released their “Beam Me Up” track on the Permanent Vacation label. It was around that time I found out about the new ‘Nu-Disco’ sound and totally got into it. After coming from a long period of playing House music, I decided to add the new ‘nu disco’ sound to my DJ sound style and incorporate it with the music I was already playing. This was how Dirty Disco started as I loved that new sound so much I wanted to push it to the people and therefore decided to do something most DJ’s didn’t do at that time, bringing a presented weekly mix-session full of new releases around these genres.
You can actually still listen to a few of my then called ‘Dirty Future Disco’ mixes that I created just before I changed it into the Dirty Disco mix-show as you know it today. Check them out on Mixcloud here below.
So to continue with the Beam Me Up release by Midnight Magic which played an important role in the establishment of Dirty Disco. They are now back with the 10 years anniversary release including a few very dope remixes. For this week’s music episode I’m reviewing the release and playing you the original version and the Theo Kottis remix.
Jacques Renault – Sky Islands | Let’s Play House Records.
To stay a little bit nostalgic around Dirty Disco, another name that was already producing music with that Disco house vibe and also played an important role in the ‘new-disco’ era we now know as Nu Disco and sometimes just referred to as Disco House is the French producer and DJ Jacques Renault. Very soon Jacques will release his highly anticipated new full studio album “Sky islands”. And to promote the album he recently released 5 tracks that are also on the album under the “High EP” release. If you pre-order the Sky Islands album now you’ll get those 5 tracks now as streaming format through Bandcamp and as a digital download. You can also pre-order the album as a 12” vinyl release and it will ship around the 12th of June. Get it here on Let’s Play House Records.
Felipe Gordon – Sincopa Liquida | Fluid Funk.
Someone who is no stranger here at Dirty Disco is the Colombian DJ and producer Felipe Gordon who I clearly play a lot. Most recently Felipe released a new album out on the Shall Not Fade label from Bristol where I also play a lot of music from. But recently releasing his album doesn’t stop Felipe from releasing more music and fast. The producer with his very own unique ‘swing-jazz-funk’ signature just dropped another LP on the Fluid Funk label titled: Sincopa Liquida. Because I really love the overall deep jazzy vibe of the album I’m featuring you at least 4 tracks from it. Also available as a 12” here.
Marina Trench – Over There | Heist Recordings.
The Dutch imprint Heist Recordings, a label I can blindly trust with always bringing out quality new releases that I always love just announced their new release by the very talented French ‘Parisian’ female producer Marina Trench titled: Over There. While the producer just started out she already has a handful of releases on quality labels like: Deeply Rooted by DJ Deep and Wolf Music. If you love smooth classic deep-house with a silky vocal touch, this is one for you to check out. I will feature two tracks from her EP both mixed with each other. Wake Up is built around a very dope emotive vocal and Carry On brings in the joy of those classic deep house stabs.
Full tracklist of Dirty Disco 409.
While I wish I could continue with writing about these quality releases, my time to write blogs only goes this far. Next to that clearly I’m looking forward to having you tuned in to this week’s episode and check out all the new music I have selected for you. Therefore you can always check out the track-listing here below if you hear something that you really like and would like to hear and know more from. I always include all the details so it’s easier and convenient for you to find these future gems. 😉 Once again thank you for tuning in and do not forget to check out the House Classic by Mr Fingers that the second last track by Böhm triggered me to play. ❤️
