This week Friday (23rd May 2014) I've a special guest mix on the show for you all the way from Bristol!
Here's a new DJ mix from the Bristol, UK label Dimentique and their in-house DJ and artist, Bordland. With five releases under the label's belt from producers such as Koala, UFOS, and Wicked Habits the label certainly presents a Bristol-born sound, casually mixing up deep house, bass, garage, and nu-disco, sometimes within the same song. In this mix Bordland highlights some past releases on Dimentique as well as forthcoming mystery tracks and some favorites from outside the label. It's an eclectic mix, though holding on to a funky deep house agenda throughout the hour.
Here at Power we understand you just love listening to all the DJs and the variety of music they play, but sometimes it's just nice to have something to add to your own personal collection. Especially to keep you going when there's no internet connection near by to get your Power fix.
We have 3 copies of DJ 3000 'Besa' album (released 03 March on Motech Records) to give away. Here's the PR on the album:
Detroit's DJ 3000 releases his fourth artist album ‘Besa’ on his own Motech label in March 2014. Born and raised in the Detroit enclave of Hamtramck, DJ 3000 (aka Franki Juncaj) was inundated with both the sights and sounds of his neighborhood, a highly ethnic area of Detroit, as well as with the influence of the music of his parent's native Albania. This diverse collection of influence has molded the current make-up of both DJ 3000 and the vision and direction of the sound that he is producing. ‘Besa’ expands his sound even further with a depth of electronic styles that collage to make his most cohesive work to date. ‘Besa’ is an Albanian cultural precept, usually translated as ‘faith’, that means ‘to keep the promise’ and ‘word of honor’. Besa is an important part of personal and familial standing and is often used as an example of ‘Albanianism’ - an Albanian cultural code. The album was produced over the past 1 and a half years after Franki moved back to Detroit after living in the Netherlands for 4 years. Finding himself burned out from the music scene he decided to take a year’s sabbatical to decide if he still wanted to continue producing music and more importantly if he still had something to say. Thankfully for us the DJ 3000 story was not finished and ‘Besa’ is the result of a producer back on his game!
So if you want to get your hands on one of three copies we have to give away email your name and postal address(so we can post out your copy) to studio[AT]powerfm[DOT]org. Closing date is 12PM IST (That's noon in Ireland!) the 9th May 2014 and the winners will be contacted via email and announced on The weekend warm up show.
