Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #23--Ladyeve--Rollerjam

Ladyeve, or DJ Eve has been a good friend of Mode.Radio since 1997 when I was working at WRAS Atlanta 88.5 FM. Eve was the host of a show called "Planet8," which was one of my first forays into electronica. Eve has moved from Atlanta to Canada and now to Mexico. Mode.Radio has featured Eve on this blog 4 times, the last time being 2011. So when we found this link to her 19th annual Xmas mix and loved the disco jams and decided to bring it to our fans. Expect the usual disco fare, starting with "All over the World" by Electric Light Orchestra, going into "Let's Groove" by Earth, Wind, and Fire, and then getting into funk nu-disco jams. As she says about the mix: "Mixed as the ideal soundtrack for the roller rink extravaganza in my heart. Made with joy for my long time friends that have brought me happiness on this journey of life music."

Radio Ready--Ron Pullman--Live Set, November 7, 2014

It has been so long since I've featured Ron Pullman on Mode.Radio. At first I thought it was since 2012, but looking back at my archives, I hadn't featured Ron since 2010! Check out his last set here. When I received this email about his latest mix, I listen to it and loved it. It was done at the Atlanta Eagle on November 7 of this year and it features remixes and tracks from Jennifer Hudson, Anita Baker, Al Green and more. Enjoy this mix!

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 www.deephouse.com. 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

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!
