because this mix from babyschön is doing it for me today - post-punk and ambient pop, very still and serene

Etch has challenged listeners to ID the tracks in this mix of his influences. I think I have some imaginary internet points around here somewhere that I can give to anyone who can help to identify.

Sofia Kourtesis Essential Mix, h/t Tracer Hand - this is really good, reminds me a lot of Pampa Records at their peak

also this is RA's Mix Of The Day today - Raphael Top-Secret warming up for Moodymann, 90s Jersey house rubbing up against West End and Prelude disco, dreamy and elegant

Love this club/ballroom/house mix from C Powers, lots of interstitials and humor and energy

how long since RA killed the mp3 d/l thing ?
only realised a couple of weeks ago when i saw the listing for one that sounded interesting.

mark e, Wednesday, 11 May 2022 18:50 (six months ago) link

Huh, not sure, but you can find bootleg RA podcast feeds that let you download the file.

change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 11 May 2022 18:56 (six months ago) link

i am sure, but, i kind of loved the fact that you could grab an official 320 as and when you felt the urge.

mark e, Wednesday, 11 May 2022 19:03 (six months ago) link

Yeah, pretty lame that they removed that

change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 11 May 2022 19:14 (six months ago) link

that C Powers mix is unreal - some of my favourite music of the past few years in that, and I have never stopped laughing at the "Plastic Bag" version

from 2019 but only shared in Feb - Heidi Lawden and Lovefingers live, no real concept but just lots of really good, disparate tracks coming together, and I'm always happy to hear "Paris Hilton"

two hours of trippy dubbed-out sounds, from street-soul and reggae to deep house and jungle. It unfortunately ends with an novelty cover but everything up to it is really enjoyable.

boxedjoy, Saturday, 9 July 2022 16:36 (four months ago) link

I looked to see what the novelty cover was and you're right, lol. I can't stand that band & their covers.

change display name (Jordan), Saturday, 9 July 2022 16:48 (four months ago) link

really frustrating, it feels like a move to make it a memorable mix but it stands on its own merits perfectly fine without it

Young Marco and Orpheu The Wizard - very energetic with lots of euphoric prog/trance including a gargantuan take on "Chime"

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 13 July 2022 18:54 (four months ago) link

Does anyone have any good recommendations for more home listening type mixes and/or DJs?

I'm talking about stuff like the mix that Boards of Canada did for Warp a few years ago, Time Is Away, Optimo's cassette series from last year and their more restrained mixes. Sold did an ambient RA mix that I really liked too

aboout thirty years later than the rest of the internet but finally getting round to playing this and wow no wonder everyone is saying how great it is

ah nice. i really liked "shared meanings", the fabriclive CD, and especially "different circles" (which was done in collaboration with logos)

hadn't heard about it, but i'll be sure to check it out

yeah the object/call super b2b is great. the lena wilikens dekmantel one on the boiler room youtube is also good, and the eros drew set… i’m currently watching the marcel dettmann one too

i’ll definitely give the dj q a listen, quite a while since i’ve heard a set by him
