As we reached the milestone of hosting our 200th mix, few artists felt as befitting as Discostan.

There’s a lot of emotive ground and dynamic range one can cover behind the four-on-the-floor beat of techno. From the more spatial inward journeys of minimal techno born out of YMCAs and church halls of Detroit, to its more hedonistic raw takes morphed within the gigantic confines of warehouses and derelict industrial buildings in Europe – these ar…
 
There is no shortage of producers flipping Bollywood-samples, though a good few of them treat the practice as a gimmick or novelty. Anthony Daniel aka November Rose on the other hand does it out of pure and sincere love for the fun and unique flavour in classic Bollywood soundtracks. It is that fun-factor which the Atlanta-based DJ and producer cap…
 
Not a lot of mixes can leave a lump in your throat – less so, within a minute of them.

Radha…
 
The first lady of Miami bass is an anglophile and resides in New York. As paradoxical as that statement may sound, it holds entirely true for Jess Gentile aka Jubilee.
