Radio Ready--Mode.Radio's 3 Year anniversary Mix--Ladymode (MsE), NYE 2010/11 Jam

So I don't claim to be a DJ. I love DJs and electronica music, (why I created Mode.Radio), but me a DJ...um no.

However, Mode.Radio started out as me experimenting and making DJ mixes (called 3AM, 4AM, and 5AM respectively) and re-broadcasting episodes of the Atlanta radio show "Subterranean." So I thought that it would be appropriate, for Mode. Radio's 3 year anniversary, to bring it back to the beginning and feature a mixed set.

This all-Disco, danceable, funkiness set was done NYE 2010/2011 at a loft party in San Francisco. The host, DKhan, and hostess, eMber, are long time friends of mine and I hope to feature them in future Mode.Radio episodes. Until then, enjoy!

The Stash 37--DJ Marky--Podcast 16, March 2009

One of the first drum 'n' bass DJ that I fell in love with was DJ Marky. My first CD of his that I bought was "The Brazilian Job" in 2001. Ever since then, whenever I see a DJ Marky set on the internet or in the stores, I have to buy it.

In March 2009, I download this set from DJ Marky's website, http://djmarky.uol.com.br/, and It hasn't left my iPod ever since. A very good d'n'b set, it's full of surprises and filled with DJ Marky speaking about tracks he's using.

A little bio: Regarded as a drum’n’bass innovator under the name Marky Mark and then just DJ Marky, Marco Antonio Silva was discovered by English DJ Bryan Gee, who saw Marky playing in a club in São Paulo in 1998. Amazed by Marky’s scratch skills, he invited the DJ to play in London. Marky got started in drum’n’bass in 1992, choosing a more hardcore edge, but the small audiences nearly caused him to give up. At the time, he was told that that kind of music was for only a few. In 1997, he went to London and met DJs Hype and Goldie. The meeting with Brian D was definitive for Marky’s conquering of England. In 1999, he was awarded "Best New DJ" by the British critics. The recording sessions of his album "Working the Mix" happened in his house, with two pick ups, one mixer and vinyl albums. When it was ready, he showed it to moguls at Paradoxx and got lucky.

Debut Series 47--Miles Long--Front Street

About 3 months ago, mode.radio got a follower from a fan of DJ Sikora's, Miles Long of Kentucky. It took me a while to listen to it, but when I finally got to it, I was pleasantly surprised. This is really good Drum 'n' Bass/Dubstep collection of created about 3 months ago.

Starting out as an emcee and audio engineer in 2000, Miles met another young producer who introduced him to Daft Punk, and fell in love with Electronic Dance Music. Several years later he purchased his first set of turntables and took to the stage himself, throwing events with other local crews and playing festivals. He has recently started back to school and is attending Full Sail University for Music Production. You can listen to all his mixes at http://www.mixcloud.com/DJMilesLong/ and his original productions http://www.soundcloud.com/djmileslong .

With a shout out to DJ Sikora and everyone over at Tennessee EDM, enjoy DJ Miles Long...
