Mode.Radio Weekly Mix #18--DJ Kemit--House in the Park 2014

One of my favorite events in my home town, Atlanta, is the annual "House in the Park" that happens on Labor Day weekend. Atlanta's best deep house DJs and DJs from all over the country and world come through to spin for this all day event that brings old heads, new heads, friends and family together in a park in downtown Atlanta.

One of the godfathers of Atlanta's house scene is DJ Kemit. According to his Mixcloud: "DJ Kemit is the creator of “4Evermore,” the No. 1 Adult Urban Contemporary song that put Anthony David on the Obamas’ radar. It put David on the map, too, with his first Top 20 R&B hit.

After decades of DJing, touring the world, and moving innumerable crowds with his signature sound, DJ KEMIT’s unparalleled production chops had caught the attention of the globe’s most powerful couple."

Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #17--Brothers in Arms--Exclusive Discobelle Mix

J-Boogie, OM Records artist and one of many DJs featured here on Mode.Radio, has put out a mix with his side group, Brother in Arms. Brother in Arms is a collaboration between J-Boogie and Dee Jay Theory that has been together for a few years. They have produced tracks, but have also done mixes for several websites. 

Here is a little info from their website: "BIA saw their first endeavors on a limited edition 12″ via Whiskey Disco, as well as official remixes on Heavy Roc for DJ Equal, and Win Music for Eric Sharp ft. Anna Lunoe. Debut performances as a DJ duo have included support for Oliver, Classixx, Moon Boots, Poolside, Jimmy Edgar, B Bravo, Danny Daze and more. Their edits have quickly caught the attention of DJs worldwide, with plays on BBC Radio 1, KCRW, KEXP and WFMU. Previous works were included on David Heartbreak’s acclaimed “Moombahsoul” compilations, and regular DJ sets can be enjoyed at their resident “Night Moves” party with partner Papa Lu at Monarch in San Francisco."

Mode.Radio's Weekly Mixes #16--Levente--Munich Sessions 7.0 from Ibiza

For this week's mix, I decided to feature something that the "burners" would like. If you don't know what I'm talking about, the annual Burning Man festival started this week and thousands are converging on Black Rock City in Nevada this week. When I first heard this mix, the only thing I could think of is how this mix would set things off right.

Levente is a Hungarian producer who has ties to San Francisco. His track "Tumbling" was featured on Renaissance's The Masters Series with Nick Warren in 2013. He has a regular mix show on Deep House Parade Radio called the "Munich Sessions." This is the 7th episode in the series, uploaded 10 days ago. You can check out more of his mixes and tracks on his Soundcloud page.

Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #15--Silicone Soul--20 years of Subculture Mix

It was a tough decision for this week's mix. I had a choice between 3 mixes, all of which were really innovative. But this mix kept bringing me back and making my head nod. It also helped that it was only 2 weeks old. :)

Silicone Soul is a house music production team from Glasgow, Scotland and have released 5 albums since 2000. This mix they did for legendary Glasgow club, Subculture, which celebrated its 20 year anniversary this past weekend. This mix is full of lovely house rhythms, with tracks from Maceo, Audion, Daniel Avery, and more. Enjoy!

Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #14--Basecamp--Guest Mix for BBC's Radio 1

Our weekly mixes are back after a summer hiatus. I have made the long move from Oakland to Nashville during the month of July. So, it seemed appropriate to feature a Nashville based group. Basecamp.

Basecamp is 3 members: Aaron Miller, Aaron Harmon, and Jordan Reyes. They were all individually producers until the came together to write and produce. Their first track, "Emmanuel," has received a lot of attention in the EDM scene.

Basecamp started in Nashville and been producing remixes and tracks for quite a while. Their genre is mainly r&b and house, but they've gotten some international acclaim with their self-titled EP put out August 2013 and their mix for BBC's Radio 1 at the beginning of this year. It's that mix that we are featuring now. Enjoy! Also learn more about Basecamp from their Facebook

Motez - Ride Roof Back
ARME - My Luv

Mode. Radio Weekly Mix #13--Kryptonica DJs--The Journey--Chillout

Summer is coming...It's not too hot and not to cool and I figured this would be a great time to get a chill relax mix for those warm days. Kryptonica Sonya and Kryptonica Cesar together we are called Kryptonica djs. They are from Milan, but they started their dj career in London back in the 90's. 
Their independent label is called "KRYPTOFABBRIKK RECORDS"  and their style is normally indie, house, and tech house, so this chill mix is a departure. Enjoy!

Getting ready for a big move and dealing with the end of my school year..

Hey Mode.Radio Fans!
Seems like I've been apologizing for delays in updating this blog since my daughter was born. I guess life really does change when you have kids, but one thing that hasn't is my love for electronic music. I'm planning on continuing to maintain this blog as long as I can with the latest in good music.

Well, y'all, another change is coming next month...I'm moving. Mode.Radio and myself will be moving to Nashville TN for my husband's job relocation. As a ATL girl, I'm super excited to get back closer to home. Plus this move is closer to my husband's family. But I'm also sad because the Bay Area is an amazing, beautiful place. It was an adjustment living here at first, but after a while, the crazy, beautiful Bay became my home. To be honest, though, you've got to pay to play here and sometimes the price is very high...

I'm dealing with this as school (teaching is my real job) is ending in a couple of weeks. Mentally I'm in summer mode now and have spent hours picking out and listening to some amazing mixes. Look out for links to mixes from my Soundcloud group, some (really good) mixes from some Nashville DJs, (maybe) a good bye Bay Area mix, and some returns of old favorites.

Summertime...where the living is easy :)
