This will be the first in a series of mixtapes on my blog. From now on you’ll be able to listen to new, exclusive mixes by known and unknown DJ’s on a regular basis at lemurcattaka.com!
I met these guys on the internet when they approached me to say they liked my blog and asked me to listen to their mixtape. I was really impressed by their eclectic style, risktaking and dope mixes. So I asked them to be the first to make an exclusive mixtape for my site.
Planck are two 21-year-old guys from the south of France with a diverse love for old and new deep grooves; French variety, disco hits , old school hiphop, big rock ‘n’ roll tunes, house and other electronic music. Their name comes from the physicist Max Karl Planck who stated that “at the dawn of the 20st century there will be a wall where human knowledge crashes”. They invite you to go beyond that wall with shows that are a travel trough time with the focus on deep and soulful music.
This summer you’ll be able to hear them play some of these awesome tunes at several spots in and around Cannes. Also check out their soundcloud for more (and some quite different) great mixtapes.
Quite typical late ninetees sound filter-disco-feel good house tune, but really well excecuted by the German producers Mr Wenzel & Inexcess who seem to have a pretty broad style, mostly leaning towards the techier side of things.. Dropping some nice summer vibez here…
The Russian producer Sunner Soul dropped some awesome sunny disco tunes lately.
From his EP ‘Discovery’ comes this minimalistic but really challenging strip down of Status IV’s ‘Loving You’ with some really dope percussion, hihats and suprises.
These two tunes are available as a download.
Sweet and really contagious (and very loud, be careful) Miami vibes in ‘Good Feeling’.
Tune just begs to be fucked around with and its an awesome dj tool with some great breakdowns.
Cool lil deep house tune with a sample of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” and a nice rich sound. The first time I heard it I wasnt too sure if I like the way the sample was chopped and used, but its actually done in a really cool and original way so I just needed some time to get into it.
Awesome Edit of Instant Funk’s ‘It’s Cool’ by the Spanish highspeed editor, the lady that never sleeps; Desibelios. She captures the dirty groove of the original perfectly and lets it keep on sleazing for a while until the other vocals come in, which just works great. Check out her soundcloud for a download of this tune and more cool edits.
Intense disco-funk banger and sublime edit of D’train’s ‘You’re The One For Me’ on Groove Democracy’s EP ‘Nelue vs DJ Steef’. I think they used the dub version of this extrememly cheesy 80′s track for their samples. Either way, the stinking parts of the cheese are cut away, a banging beat is added, and the result is a heavy and uplifting disco track with a lot of suspense.
