Loosely placed, low slung bass-lines under swathes of Chords, layered with tight, punchy snares and defined high hats ..influences from disco, electro,'Jack' and late 80's/early 90's house.
T3 and T4 deliver a vocal ilk of the calibre of Owens and Smooth. T5 and T6 are a nod to a bygone era When people learned to make machines sing like people and people learned to sing like machines..
T8 sounds like burial doing Prog House, T9 sounds like the Edge from an early U2 has guested and T11 reminds me of early Chicane.
Warning: This production contains occasional swirly electronica melodies, some wobbles and a mild dubby undertone in places!

An eclectic soundscape with a lot of early 90's retro influences that begins deep, cushioned by warm industrial undertones and tightly produced disco beats with chord play into electronic soul that twists into a slightly tech vibe towards the midway point. Continuing to build through more driving layered tracks towards the more high pressure percussive sound of Tube and Berger.

The belated and 2nd edition of 'Forged', a distinctively mechanically influenced mix of new releases and some 1Yo and 2Yo archives. Steel is built on percussive layers, starts off deep and involved then moves in a more anthemic direction, still underpinned by cold strings and hard snares before finishing with delayed 808 congas on a New Order tip. Mixed Live, shout out to Mr. Moss: #JasonRealTime. The faves for me are from Jager, Fran Von vie and Kort.

This is 'Coal', and due to the fact that good tunes are #fishinabarrel at the Miami moment, this is part one of a 2 mix series called 'Forged'. This instalment builds gradually from the atmospheric locked groove, through some down-beat disco soul vocals, underpinned by analogue basslines into a more anthemic and uplifting direction towards Track8. Allowance from the legendary Isolee takes on a more minimal but still melodic relaxed reprise, 'No more' lifts it up again until the direction tails off into some lovely electronica/breaks from Jupiter Jax. Look out for the second in the series, 'Steel' which is mixed live and available in the next week ....

02 Sonny Fodera - Just Like
03 Marcus Anthony - Bad Timing

10 Pavel Petrov - No More
11 Jon Charnis - Prophecy
12 Jupiter Jax - Two Moon
Thanks to some Track-tokens gifted from DeepTransmissions, Here's something put together to mark the end of a big year.
We head off in more of a four to the floor direction towards some soulful NYC and garage influenced sounds, via some squelchy chords, wobbly basslines and chunky back-beats ...

A slightly belated episode, but hopefully worth the wait.. Heavily influenced by a recent top night @letherette @shacklewellarms - A solid underpinning of dirty and twisted funk influences with some lighter tones shining through. A personal resurgence of the legendary Glasgow Underground, I've been away for some time.
Standout keys from Adrian Barron, Tevo Howard and Ron BaseJam. Couldn't resist the P-Funk/'House Party' vibes on T11 'Daft Funk', especially after it was dropped at the office Xmas party last week..

As the leaves turn golden brown ...
Begins on a Disco tip and builds into a deeper tech vibe, giving way to tribal and driving progressive conclusion. Selection drips with dirty synth riffs and b-lines, underpinned by tough swingy grooves, mechanical snares and jazzy fill-ins.

Something a bit different on today's menu ...
A chilled yet elevating autumnal journey of textures and soundscapes which blends, fades, edits and drops through Deep House, Underground / Emotive Garage into some lush Chillstep and DnB.

Standout fave has to be the 80's ElectroSoul styled corker from System of Survival, not overshadowing 'Song for Her' and 'Flash of Life' Luper, Fabo or Dusky's cheeky garage style mix. Track11 - Jus 4 U Luton.

13 Terrific Ivan - Always been there (Georgio Bassetti Remix)
14 Chris James Feat. Ria Moran - Song for her
Starts off moody and atmospheric, moving through synth-disco, dirty tribal, latin and soul influences towards a shiny and uplifting conclusion with elements of a 'Chicane' sound in a lot of the keys, but always deep.
The Teenzo opener is a real involver, T7 reminds me of the classic Tyrant sound and Baby Prince delivers an amazing slab of electro to finish.
Big shout to Juanfra, a quality Gran Canaria DJ who lays down a solid and slick selection every Friday and Saturday @ NoComments bar in Maspalomas, dropping deep and dope delights into the night... Sin Commentarios.

An amazing chapter in my life has recently come to a close, this is all about that.. A selection that is reminescent of the late 80's and early 90's which ascends from lo-fi, dubby and afrocentric into a bumpy garage influenced style, building toughly through some big chords and 80's influenced vocal into progressive peak at T10.
Tails off into T12 with a lush piece of melancholic and atmospheric glitchstep soundscaping by Lake Powel. Fave Tracks are from Fabo, one I missed from the Summer and the fresh sound from Henry Saiz, Shuri-Kan's remix of 'Love can't break you down' and Andy Donoghue's mix of 'Everlasting Love'.

12 Lake Powel - More or Less [FENOU]
Starts and ends with lush, richly textured tunes, moves into a more jacky and bumpy, uplifting house vibe.
Lots of cut-up vocal samples and dubby disco beat production, 80's keys. Inspired by some recent great times with great people in a great city.

Jubilations about the calibre of releases at the moment. Large amount of soul and vocal influences on nearly all the tracks all held together with a warm but slightly raw analogue sound, bumping bass-lines abound. Organic Bass riffs.
First half builds and bubbles, hitting the straight up disco at Track 5, the mix then heads towards the dancefloor... Standout vox on the Jon Silva, Shatti and Tennis with an Indie crossover offering. Liking Dubstep producer Giom getting on the Deep House production tip.

Rich layers in T1, Jazzy vibes on T3, Lovely Vox on T2 and T6, Nice Funky/Deep crossover from the legendary Cajmere.

This episode definitely heads off on a more involved, deeper tip, much more low key than the last episode. Featuring plenty of vocal and Piano elements around the middle of the mix.
Most tracks are very recent, but I also wanted to include some older tracks, so 12 - 14 revisit some classics from around 2004.
Some new releases from fave labels FreeRange and SoulShift as well as releases from labels that I haven't picked up on before such as Loco and Mare. Standout for me is the chunky number from D'Steph.
