Summer Revenge

It appears somewhat ironic after enjoying all this good weather while listening to some appetizing summer disco mixtapes that as soon as I get some time to share these with you the sun hides in typical British fashion. Not that these mixtapes need particular circumstance to enjoy I should say but, sun always makes music sound a lot better in my opinion. If you are to believe the hype then this cold spell isn’t to last as we are to experience the warmest summer on record… yeah I’ve heard that one before too.

First up is The Revenge whose productions and mixtapes I’ve recently been introduced to by a fellow disco re-edit fan. Together with Ali Herron he produces re-edits, "deep-as-you-like house, forgotten funk and 80s boogie" under their OOFT! alias. You can find examples of their recent releases on Five20East Records and more so on their OOFT! Music blog.

Here's a live mix recorded back over the Easter holiday last month at Soul City @Embassy Bar, London. Be sure to check out the blog and Myspace for more mixtapes and re-edits.

A month or so ago I was sent the following mixtape by Toronto's TMDP and I was impressed by the selection of records and mixing choice. After the tempo decreases on the forth track it's somewhat apparent it's either a brilliant mix or something engineered by a laptop. Either way I like the diversity to make tracks mix, no matter what the tempo. Something I've been trying to master myself using Serato (without much luck I might add).

TMDP - April Mix 2009.mp3 (Mediafire)
1 Tiger & Woods - Come Down
2 Lovebirds - Gentle
3 Free Disco - Psychedelic Symmetry
4 Soft Rocks - Look East
5 Reverso 68 - Tokyo Disko
6 Ilija Rudman - After Midnight (LSB Remix)
7 Soft Rocks - Midnight Drive
8 Luomo - Tessio (Spektre Remix)
9 Paul Kalkbrenner - Azure

Regulars to the blog may notice that Disco/ deep house re-edits are pretty new around here and I do hope to continue posting about the genre and its sub-genres soon. In the meantime check out these mixes and if you have similar tracks and mixes to share, feel free to forward them on. If you're in London this weekend and need your disco fix then check out Escape from New York @The Queen Of Hoxton. I missed the previous two Bank Holiday events so hopefully the hangover from Saturday will be more forgiving this time. See you there.
