Luciano – Live At Cadenza Meets Planet E (Bpm 2015)

Flyer

Throughout a week of events, some are bound to stand out more than others. Cadenza meets Planet E at Mamitas had a heavy lineup with Mark Fanciulli, Moodymann, Stacey Pullen, Carl Craig, and Luciano. The fusion of styles commonly associated with Cadenza was a perfect compliment to that of Planet E, and the house and techno grooves found in this set are serious dance floor material.

The atmosphere at this showcase seems to have been in great spirits judging from the selection of tunes from Luciano. The mix feels incredibly balanced as he weaves through deep tribal rhythms and open air house grooves, and the final moments of his set propel the dance floor into an absolute frenzy. Quality work from the Cadenza master mind capturing the essence of The BPM Festival. This mix is a great example of the quality music experienced in Playa del Carmen that week. Enjoy Luciano live at Cadenza Meets Planet E.

Nick Curly at Club4, Barcelona

You know a venue will be special when its vision comes to life through Paco Osuna, Christian Smith, Marco Carola, and Adam Beyer.

Guy J – December Around the World

GuyJ body

When someone refers to “progressive” in regards to dance music, it often has a negative connotation towards more mainstream and festival “EDM”. But when we say progressive, we think of the beautiful and eclectic sounds from artists like Guy J, Hernan Cattenao, and Nick Warren. In his recent December Around the World mix, Guy J puts on the best showcase to the sounds of the progressive genre.

Lush pads and vibrant basslines start the mix off on a high note as the mix takes emotional turns through the various aspects of progressive house and techno. December Around the World stays true to it’s melodic and swaying elements, and it isn’t until the last 15 minutes that Guy J turns it up a notch with some jackin hats and driving basslines. If you have any friends with misconceptions about progressive house, this would be the ideal mix to convince them otherwise. Enjoy the final few days of 2014 as well as this phenomenal mix from Guy J.

Robert Dietz Live at Robert Johnson, Germany

Robert Johnson club

When it comes to quality music, Robert Dietz needs no introduction. The Desolat staple had quite a year playing at some of the most esteemed clubs and festivals around the world, one of which being the iconic Robert Johnson in Offenbach, Germany. Robert Johnson is arguably one of the smallest, but best clubs in the world. The room holds just about 100 people, but that doesn’t stop it from hosting some serious parties. An intimate setting such as this is a special way to experience the sounds of Dietz.

Robert Dietz played Robert Johnson back in November, and THUMP has made part of the set available for streaming via Soundcloud. The set is loaded with house and tech that Dietz has become so well known for, and one can only imagine how pure it sounded on the sound system at Robert Johnson.

Posh and Scott Palmer – Project London Radio

The vinyl resurgence is alive as ever, and as a result more boutique vinyl only labels seem to be coming up. One of these vinyl only labels is Project London Records, and their radio series is a great representation of their sound. Here’s a mix from Posh back-to-back with label owner Scott Palmer to get started on the right track today. If hypnotic house grooves are something you enjoy then this mix will be perfect for you. Take a listen below and start the Monday journey.

The label specializes in proper house music with moments of deep hypnotic grooves. Very appropriate for a vinyl only label that delivers such quality music for the mind and dance floor. This particular back-to-back session with Posh and Scott Palmer showcases their deep sound, and it’s so smooth that the 58 minutes really isn’t enough. For a vinyl only label I’d like to think that the mix is all vinyl as well, however they don’t make that specification in the info.

D’Julz at Womb, Tokyo

Djulz Womb Flyer

When it comes to getting the dance floor wild, leave it to non other than French house star D’Julz. To get our Monday started on the right foot here is D’Julz live from one of our favorite Japanese clubs, Womb. He brought the finest blend of house and techno to the clubbers at Womb for quite a journey on Halloween night this year.

The mix starts with classic house pads and atmospheres, and it sets the mood perfectly for the remainder of the mix. After the first track I was hooked. The groove transforms as a single percussive hit changes everything, and moving forward it is a true house music experience. To be honest, quite envious of those who were on the dance floor for this one.

The event was promoted and organized by prominent music group Tresvibes, and included Point G (Live) and many Japanese residents to complete the lineup. Japan is starting to become a focal point for the ever growing house and techno scene in the world, and nights like these show that there is an incredible amount of promise moving into the future.

Marc Antona Dissonant World Podcast

Marc Antona AZ

Today we kick start Monday with a mix from Marc Antona (Dissonant) that redefines open-air vibes. Playing to a vibrant crowd of snakes, hawks, and desert wildlife, Antona delivers the minimalistic rolling grooves that Dissonant is so well known for.

This edition of the Dissonant World Podcast took their team into the desert of Arizona, creating a backdrop of pure beauty for the set. Dissonant and all of the artists on their roster have the ability to craft electronic music in a way that seems so effortless, but produces a result that can satisfy the mind and body alike. This mix by Marc Antona is no exception.

Antona follows through with all the ingredients that make for a well-rounded mix. His ability to layer multiple sounds and percussions in the frequency spectrum allows him to take the listener on a journey through music and sound. While the mix is mostly groove oriented, there are those perfect moments of filtered chord stabs and analog leads that make this mix feel very sophisticated. If you’re in the mood for some deep techno from the Dissonant crew, take a listen to the full open air session below.
