From James Brown to DJ Koze, the mix touches upon all flavors throughout the four hour journey.
Move D and Jus Ed are the DJ’s DJ’s. With a taste unparalleled by others, and technical precision perfected through years of experience, the two are incredibly admirable in their dedication to the craft. Sit back, relax, and enjoy four hours of Move D and Jus Ed.
At the tender age of 18, and as a freshman at the University of Southern California, Justin Jay released his first EP on Claude Von Stroke’s label, Dirtybird. That was several years ago, and since then the young Californian has went on to be one of the prominent rising stars within the dance industry.
Since his rise to underground stardom there’s been ample coverage on his music career and unique story as a young scholar walking the halls of USC. From sleepless nights and even rejected demos from Claude Von Stroke, Justin Jay has shown relentless grit to follow his passion and express himself so well through music.
Here at 6AM Group we’ve always been very fond of Justin Jay as an artist, obviously, but also as an overall great human being. As we look through the archives of our Global Vibe Radio series, we couldn’t help but reminisce on one of our first few episodes with Justin Jay himself.

“It’s about the music, man!” That’s the vocal snippet that comes blaring through the speakers with a heavy breaks and house influence on the first track of this Global Vibe Radio, and it is a prefect representation of Ben Teufel’s outlook on house music.
Hailing from Germany, Ben Teufel has been putting his spin on classic house music for several years releasing on labels such as Innocent Music, Smiley Fingers, Natural Rhythm, BWO Records, Pacha Recordings, and Monique Musique to name a few. With a firm grasp at the controls, both in the studio and DJ booth, Ben Teufel knows exactly how to make the dance floors sway to the groove.
In this edition of Global Vibe Radio, Ben Teufel flexes his sonic taste effortlessly moving between house cuts ranging from the massive garage basslines and jackin’ house rhythms that would seem right at home on the basement floor of Sankeys.

Q&A with Ben Teufel
At the tender age of 21, Roberto Apodaca from El Paso, Texas started Draft Records. That was four years ago, and since then Draft Records has become a prominent record label honing in on the underground sounds of minimal and tech house. With Apodaca at the helm, Draft Records has released EP’s from rising minimal artists such as David Gtronic, Emiliano Ferreyra, Neverdogs, Martinez, and countless others, while acting as a major influence for the underground scene in El Paso.
Starting a record label is one thing, but maintaining the brand and musical vision takes things to a new level. Roberto Apodaca has stayed locked in on his vision for underground dance music, and continues to strive for excellence both in his music and record label.
Roberto has put together a recent mix for our Global Vibe Radio Series, and has taken the time to answer some questions regarding the music scene in Texas, his vision with Draft Records, and tells us about his first time going to Space to see Loco Dice.
Enjoy the mix and Q&A, and make sure to stay up to date with Roberto and Draft Records.
“When I was asked to do this Essential Mix I thought it might be something special to compile a selection of tracks from my label Cocoon Recordings. You’ll hear old stuff, current releases and some unreleased music which will be out soon.” – Sven Vath
Essential mixes for BBC are a milestone achievement in this industry, and are treated with the upmost respect. This past Fourth of July weekend, Sven Vath took to the BBC Radio 1 airwaves to deliver an essential mix encompassing the vast catalog of his label, Cocoon Recordings.

In an era where podcasts and mix series are so abundant, one that has stood the test of time is the iconic mix series from Fabric. Since 2001 Fabric has been a platform for artists to showcase their style and put together a true sonic adventure for the listener. Fabric 81 features the work of Matt Tolfrey, and as expected he brings forth some serious dance material.
“This is the mix I have been hoping to achieve my whole career. I’ve basically tried to fit in eleven years of my experiences at fabric, but trust me it’s been hard as there’ve been so many. There are records on here that I remember playing the first time I ever played at the club, and there are records on here I can’t wait to play at the club again. By editing nearly all the tracks on the mix, I was able to fit it all in.” – Matt Tolfrey
With the delivery of Fabric 81, Matt Tolfrey joins an esteemed group of artists who have all left their sonic mark through the Fabric imprint. With the release it’s only appropriate that Fabric hosts the official launch party.
