Mode.Radio Weekly Mix #75--DJ Spoony--Rinse FM Podcast, January 6, 2017

I was a fan of British Garage music when it first came to the States in the early 2000's. It didn't take off as well here as it did in the UK but some of the artist I still play frequently, including Craig David and MJ Cole.

I was looking for a mix to put on this blog and I stumbled upon this mix from DJ Spoony. Spoony has been active in DJ since the mid 90's and was a show host on Radio 1's Weekend Breakfast Show from 2003-2006. After his time at Radio 1, he did other radio shows and mainly did club events.

This mix was done for the Rinse FM podcast earlier this month. Enjoy!

Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #74--DJ Tabone--Nu Urban Rhythm and Soul Vibes


Mode.Radio's back for 2017 with some new mixes from great DJs!

As some of you may know, I've been doing a radio show here in Nashville called Soul of the City. The show features neo-soul, r&b, and hip-hop, so I decided for this 1st mix of 2017, I'd feature some of those similar sounds.

One of my favorite DJs is Atlanta's DJ Tabone. Well known for his neo-soul mixes, Tabone put our 12 short  mixes last December called the "12 Days of Mixmas." This mix is one of my favorites. It features unsigned and independent soul artists and mixes from 2016. Artists including Teedra Moses and mixes featuring Beyonce and more!

It's a short mix, but it's a good way to start 2017. Enjoy!

Enjoy!

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!

DJ Osmose has been a BIG part of the Mode.Radio family since our inception in 2008. His range of DJ mixes from Disco to Reggae and everything else in between has been featured on this blog. It' been a while since we have featured him, so I decided to go to Soundcloud and see his latest.

I'm in love with this mix he did for CaffeineSupreme last month

As he states it: "Quality Music For Forward People" and that's what he has been doing for many years!
