At Home With LWE: 26th October - Poté TakeoverMon 26th Oct
Taking us through a selection of favoured picks this Monday is London-based DJ and producer, Poté.
Catching the eye of BBC Radio 1 favourites Pete Tong, Annie Mac and B.traits with his much acclaimed debut EP on Enchufada back in 2015, the Lucian-born artist has gone on to carve out his own lane in the industry with a distinct palette of percussive led, euphoric, dreamy house hits that have crossed over beyond the dancefloor, collaborating with the likes of Gorrillaz, Little Dragon and Chelou.
Poté’s pick of mixes, releases and more include John Gómez, a Prince tribute by DJ Bone, a recent collab between BRONSON and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Mark Manson and The Prodigy.
John Gómez - Reencuentros Mix
I'm really not sure how I came across this mix but by the magically ways which Soundcloud works, I did and forever grateful for the fact I did. I've listened to it so much over the lockdown period and still do now, it's such a perfect soundtrack to the morning! It's one of those mixes you didn't know you did, with music from all over the world, enjoy!
DJ Bone - A Prince Tribute Mix
I've always been a bit of a fan of Prince but never fully fell in love until earlier this year on tour supporting Georgia. Literally every single day whenever my headphones went on, it was a Prince album and I can honestly say, some of the best journeys listening to music I've ever had. Something quite beautiful about being on a train in the spring, going through the scenic mountains in Scotland. Shortly after a very dear friend of mine sent me this and it never fails to make me ridiculously happy, I love the elements of live performances mixed with some records, works so well!
BRONSON - DAWN feat. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
I mean ...TEED's voice!!
Everything Is Fucked: A Book About Hope by Mark Manson
I'm currently reading Everything Is Fucked: A Book About Hope by Mark Manson which is super interesting, might be a bit premature of me to recommend it not having fully read it but here we are! This period we find ourselves in where hope, or the absence of it seems to be more prevalent. It's important to understand how crucial hope is for us to thrive.
The Prodigy - Phoenix Festival 1996
I've come back to this video so many times. I've lost my voice before a show to this performance, I've raged to this performance, so now you can too. What a performance, what a crowd! RIP Keith.
