Mode.Radio's Weekly Mixes #21--KevinO--Live and Direct

Aah, Mr. Kevin Owens, aka DJ KevinO...One of the hardest working DJs, now a papa, in the Southern US. A good friend of Mode.Radio, we have featured Kevin plenty of times, the latest being his mix he did last year for a Halloween party. I figured for the Thanksgiving holiday week, Mode.Radio fans may need something to shake the turkey/holiday away. This mix was literally done "live and direct" at an Atlanta event and features truly groove filled rhythms in this 2 hour set. Again, no tracklisting, but after you listen, you care. You can check out mixes from Kevin and his crew at Enjoy!

Mode.Radio Weekly Mix #20--Osmose--Live at The Georgia Theatre Rooftop, Bootsy Collins afterparty

For our weekly mix, Mode.Radio is featuring a very dear friend of this blog, DJ Osmose!

I first met Osmose in Atlanta when I was working at WRAS 88.5 FM. He always had these amazing house, reggae, and dub mixes, some of which I still listen to today. Through our friendship, Osmose has played out in the SF Bay Area, plus in Hawaii, Mexico, and many other places. Now based in Athens, GA, Osmose has started his own label, Smokecloud Records and has maintained regular dates in Atlanta and Athens. This mix is from is rooftop sessions at the world-famous Georgia Theater in Athens. It was for a Bootsy Collins afterparty back in August of this year, so you know it has to be funky! Enjoy the rhythms and vibes!

Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #19--Buttkick--Deeper Sounds Vol. 1

I stumbled upon Buttkick a few weeks ago and I was pleasantly surprised. He's from Devonshire in the UK and has recently returned to the scene after 10 years away. This mix features tracks from the likes of D-Pulse, MAM, Sixth Avenue Express, Satin Jackets, Kris Menace & BlueAzure etc from labels such as Editorial, Outcross Recordings, Eskimo Recordings & Nurvous Records. There's no tracklisting, but this is good stuff. Enjoy!

Radio Ready--DJ Eko--Soultronica Vol. 6

Hello Mode.Radio fans! Radio Ready is back after a LONG hiatus! Thanks to those that have been keeping up with this blog as I have moved, had to get a new computer, got a new job, etc.

For this latest episode of Radio Ready, I went back to a DJ I had featured in February, DJ Eko. I had originally discovered her through a couple of my Burning Man friends and I posted her mix for RecessNYC. Loved her, communicated with her through her Twitter and wanted more mixes.

Her inspiration for this mix actually comes from Burningman 2014. Eko says: Since this year I was unable to sound-captain artcar gliding across the desert I took the sensation of unfulfilled expression and encapsulated it in Soultronica Vol.6. I enjoy being clever. The mix came together organically around our Burningman themes and is chalked full of secret-society catch phrases and glimmerings of shared magic and symbolism

So here is her latest Soultronica Vol 6. Look at the tracklisting and get excited, because this mix is going to be fun! Enjoy!

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."
