fact-mix-sound-pellegrino-7.21.2014

Let your weekend be soundtracked by this Fact Magazine mix done by none other than DJ Orgasmic and Teki Latex (2/3 of Sound Pellegrino).

Expect left field dance music interspersed by bassed up club sounds from across the globe but with an emphasis on their French counterparts.

“We tend to favour live blends over bootlegs and edits, and the occasional tweaks and glitches you will hear in this mix are made live using (and abusing) the slip mode on the CDJs nexus. We have always had a hard time choosing between 4/4 and broken rhythms, or between techno and a song format, so we tend to jump from one to the other. We grew fascinated and obsessed by these dualities, and it’s the re-contextualisation and association of these tracks together that create our own version of club music.”

Halifax/dj producer Ryan Hemsworth is one of the most interesting names to emerge in the North American dance music scene during the last year and his talent is acknowledged across the globe, Fact Magazine hosts his latest mix that takes us on a ride through “…a pastel sea of acapellas (Danny Brown, Lil B), Hemsworth edits (of Frank Ocean & Andre 3000, Future, Waka Flocka Flame and a fucking Squaresoft-tributing take on Jeremih’s slow jam of the year contender ’773 Love’ ) and original material from Baauer, Antwon and Hemsworth itself…”

The Boston duo known as Soul Clap are the reigning masters of deep and funky house, they’re responsible for this E-Funk mix which is even if it’s a bit old the latest mix in the Fact Magazine Mix series and this is tryuly outstanding. There will be alot of babies made to this mix.

“This mix, in fact, is so good that we don’t mind the fact that it’s old. Soul Clap’s E-FUNK: The Mixtape was created in 2010, and pressed in a limited edition of 200 copies – 100 given out for free at a party thrown by the Boston duo, and 100 through our friends at Phonica Records. Now, with Soul Clap’s debut album on the horizon, we’re making this classic available for free online.

Those of you who remember King Midas Sound’s FACT mix – a beautifully crafted session of re-manipulated lovers’ rock that you’d have gladly paid money for, given how much effort and attention had clearly gone into it – will find much to love about this session. Sporting close to 40 tracks from Dam-Funk, Kokane, Miles Davis and many more, plus interludes, shout outs and, naturally, plenty of edits and originals from Soul Clap themselves, E-FUNK: The Mixtape is pretty close to nasty, stanky, funk perfection. Trust us on this one, it’s absolutely brilliant.”

PS. We see you there in the tracklist Genevan Heathen…

UK producer Deadboy with a Valentine’s Day special mix for Wifey LDN. (Via Fact)

“On this day more than any other, everyone wants someone to be close to them. To tenderly caress them. And no touch could be sweeter than that of the most romantic selector we know – Deadboy. After all, who else has authored modern dancefloor staples as sublime and sensitive as “U Cheated” and “If U Want Me”? Who else could have us welling up so, as he drops classic odes like “I Would Die 4 U” next to such dewy-eyed bassline anthems as Mr Figz’s “Rain”?

Deadboy may not physically be by your side today. Even though we care for you, we couldn’t promise that. But if you can open up your heart for just a moment, then let him reach out to you with this lovingly crafted mixtape.

Yours truly and forever,
Wifey LDN xxxx”
