Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix # 70--Tommie Sunshine Vs Frankie Bones--Even Furthur 2016




The Even Furthur Fest was this summer in Wisconsin and as a surprise, superstar DJs Tommie Sunshine and Frankie Bones tagged on the closing set.

Tommie grew up going to the original Furthur festival while living in the Chicago. I've been a huge fan of Tommie's since he left Atlanta to focus entirely on his music. When I knew him in Atlanta, he ran the legendary Satelite Records and shared his love of electronic music with everyone who entered the store.

Frankie Bones is a legendary NYC based house DJ who coined the phrase PLUR (Peace, Love, Unity, Respect). He has produced several tracks, some of which have been used for such events like Berlin's Love Parade.

No Tracklist because it was a complete surprise...Enjoy!

Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #65--Greg Wilson--Live at Music Room Atlanta May 2016



The past two weeks I've been driving from Nashville to Atlanta tending to my father's medical issues. It's a short trip compared to coming from Oakland to Atlanta and it gives a lot of time to think and listen to music. So this weekend for my drive I download this mix from my friends at The Music Room in Atlanta. This was a mix done during their 2 year anniversary event in May of this year and it's....sexy.

Very sexy, Disco sexy...just damn sexy.

The DJ is Greg Wilson. A legend in the electro scene since the 1980's and from Manchester, England, Greg has been heavily influenced by soul and disco and responsible for producing soul and hip-hop tracks in the 80's and 90's. He recently began to document the history and current state black music in England on his website ElectroFunkRoots and currently runs a blog called Being a DJ.

I hope you enjoy this mix as much as I did :)

Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #64--Dr. Fu Man Chu--Return of the Astrobump

It's been a while since we've had a weekly mix because I have truly enjoyed my summer off as a teacher :) This mix really goes along with my chill summer and ironically, it was done by a DJ who is also a teacher enjoying his summer!

I met Dr. Fumanchu in Atlanta in the mid 90's. One of the best chill, hip-hop DJ's in the scene, he handled his biz. Working at Rewind Records, he was always the first to grab downtempo tracks. He, like all of us, made a life change and became a teacher in Philly but never forgot his roots.

This mix features a lot of Stone's Throw including Quasimoto, Dilla, and more. Enjoy!
