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!

Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #63--Queen Majesty--Mix for Intermission, May 2016


Sunday mornings at my house consists of my husband cooking breakfast, my kid looking at the comic page and me reading the newspaper listening to a dub mix. Sometimes I listen to WRAS 88.5FM online and sometimes I play DJ Mixes. Today I was looking for a new mix and hit up Recess NYC's Intermission website. I was pleasantly surprised by this mix from Brooklyn's Queen Majesty.

Queen Majesty has been DJing for over 20 years and had two radio shows on East Village Radio, up until 2014. Along with that she's a business owner with her own hot sauce line. Loving this mix and hope it makes any day of your week chill.

Enjoy!

Radio Ready--Ladymode--Soul of the City Mix 2

Hello all!
It's been a while since I posted a Radio Ready mix and the last one I posted was a mix I did when I auditions for an on-air position on WXNA 101.5FM radio in Nashville.

Well starting June 9, my radio show "Soul of the City" will FINALLY be on the air and on the internet. You can listen to it on TunedIn at WXNA or on their website wxnafm.org. It took a while because of antenna issues but we're ready to go now!

"Soul of the City" is a departure from Mode.Radio because it's more of a neo-soul than electronica. But not to worry, I will still be maintaining the electronic sounds on this blog.
