The Detroit based, nu-disco and re-edit producer, Pontchartrain, has been all over my radar these past few months. From his blinding reworks of Al Green and Frances Joli to his exceptional releases on Hot Digits Music and Whiskey Disco, if you are a fan of disco and funk archeology, you best get familiar.

Here we have his remix of the legendary, ‘Supernature’ by Cerrone, for a Beatport hosted competition. Check out the other submissions, and if you’re so inclined, give our man a vote here.

Today, our first release MVSEVM – French Jeans is released all over the internet (iTunes, Juno, Amazon, etc). We are really happy with all the positive response we have been getting from everyone (great support from a lot of DJs, played on Kissy Sell Out’s show on BBC 1 two weeks in a row now, Big Tune of the Week on Joe Ransom’s show on Kiss 100).

So now it’s time for us to give something back. Here is the original track from MVSEVM. These three Finns are bound to be really big and the journey starts here. “Techno retirees strike back with a dose of cheesy keys & firm beats to make everything fresh again!”

And, please support us and go buy the tracks.

Here is some more feedback on the release to convince you that it’s a killer:

Rex The Dog
“Oh god this is amazing. I thought the Style Of Eye mix was really
cool, and the Dada Life mix blew my head off, and Rex went nuts. Gonna
hammer hammer it.”

“Fan of everything Dada Life touches!!! It’s dancefloor gold! The Donk
Boys “Epic Rave mix” keeps your attention in an interesting way and is

So the NGDJ draft has just begun. Our first pick is DJ Drastik with his The Frenzy mix. If you enjoy this mix as much as we do be sure to support him and get him some votes so he can reach the 200 that is need to move forward in the remix competition. There are still time to enter your Letsmix.com mixes and have a chance to get the two Pacemakers we got left.

“Welcome to The Frenzy. A journey into the musical mind of yours truly, Dj Drastik. The concept of the mix is simple…Take the best pieces of some of my favorite songs and put em together. I want to stay away from the term “mash up”, its more like a constant remix. Wether its a hip hop acapella mixed with a piano from an old rave tune, to RnB drums over a folk guitar, nothing is left untouched…It truly is a frenzy of sound, yet, it keeps its flow the entire way through…I wanted to take listeners on a trip, both high and low and hopefully incite some form of emotion. Mixtapes can be so bland and emotionless nowadays… they used to inspire me… make me think differently about djing and music in general. They’d make me angry, excited, sad…i really wanted to convey some of these feelings and really try to make something timeless, something you can always go back to…please enjoy and thank you for listening!

Stylusts Crew

made using 2 Technics 1200’s, Rane TTM57, Serato Scratch Live and Acid 5.0
