At Home With LWE: 24th March, 2020Tue 24th Mar
As the sun continues to shine and flowers continue to bloom, we continue to deliver our daily package of music related content to perk you right up. Here is today’s pick of mixes, releases and more.
SPFDJ Dekmantel Mix:
Opting for a bit of change this Tuesday, today’s new mix comes by way of heavy techno from Swedish rising star SPFDJ. Outspoken, outlandish and risqué in her approach to life, she brings the same high octane energy to her DJ sets. From acid, industrial and EBM, the blistering bold mix will place you in the heart of a sweat dripping Herrensauna party, no matter where you’re situated. High intensity techno workout anyone?
Doc Martin - The House Music Movement (1998)
If you’re more into your house we’ve got your bases covered. Today’s legendary mix comes by way of Doc Martin. A true DJ’s DJ who's been instrumental to the West Coast scene over the past few decades. The 1998 recording of the Sublevel head honcho slaps like a blast from the past as he guides us on a journey of timeless early house records.
Mr G. LWE Mix
Mr. G, Mr. G, Mr. G! We brought in the early hours of the first morning of 2013 with Mr. G who played our NYE party at Factory 7 on the last day of 2012. Here's his second instalment for the LWE mix series - Mr. G Sessions. Taking us on a journey through a myriad of minimal, tribal and rolling techno, G shows us the real pedigree and groove that can only come from the man himself.
Traumer - Square Up
The long awaited and much anticipated Traumer Assembling Pieces LP finally arrived this month and it's fair to say it delivered on all fronts. From the smooth gentle caress of Sea of Clouds to the intricate Priku linkup on Operations, a total of 13 standout tracks will make this a hard release to beat this year. If we had to pick our favourite on the album it would be the searing peak time whopper aptly titled Square Up.
Charlotte De Witte - Trip (TWR72 Remix)
Today’s office favourite pick comes by way of Charlotte De Witte and TWR72. An unexpected collaboration that produced one of the all time stomping classics. Stripping back the original production, the track unleashes an undeniable hypnotic groove that hits at the core of any listener making you wanna hit the dancefloor stat.
An Ode To Eurodance
A cheesy 90s phase or an instrumental part of bringing dance music to the masses? From Corona’s The Rhythm of the Night, Haddaway’s What Is Love and Eiffel 65’s Blue (Da Ba Dee), many Eurodance classics live on nostalgically in our memories, occasionally popping up at the odd house party. However, there are some murmurs that it could be making a comeback as more and more DJs are heard incorporating it into their sets. After all, who doesn’t love some synthy goodness mixed with life-affirming lyrics. Read more about the history in the Crack Magazine article here.
La Fleur Cercle Mix
La Fleur is someone who we’ve been working with very closely here at LWE over the last few years. Her meticulous, carefully crafted, eclectic sets are always a joy to witness and this Cercle mix is another testament to her talent. Relive the classic moment as she unleashes a plethora of tidy grooves on the streets of Paris.
