Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #25--DJ Cullen Cole--Private Session

According to DJ Cullen Cole's bio, it all started in the early 1980’s with his parents dropping him off at his first roller rink where Cullen Cole got his first taste of disco, soul, and house. It's a great start to a great career from this Atlanta-based, house DJ. It wasn't long before he was Djing at the rink himself, as well as other local Atlanta clubs, where he was introduced to the original house sounds of Chicago and Detroit. Newly inspired by this fresh sound, he quickly found himself frequenting Atlanta hotspots like 688 Spring St., Velvet, Masquerade, The Warehouse and Sol Nightclub, where he bonded with fellow house music lover, and Chicago transplant Tommie Sunshine. The duo ran Atlanta record shop Satellite Records for many years, causing Cullen to expand his musical armory. This new role only further fueled his desire to embrace all aspects of the electronic music scene. Starting his first residency in 1997, Cullen has brought DJ's and groups such as Derrick Carter,  Larry Heard, Charles Webster, DJ Spinna, Peven Everett, ?uest Love, Ron Trent, Jazzanova, Omar, Kerri Chandler, Rich Medina, Tortured Soul, and many more. An open-minded and diverse DJ, Cullen's music is constantly innovating, presenting the classic sounds of Disco, House, Funk and Soul to Atlanta’s dancefloors. Going back to his roots with the quarterly "Adult Skate" parties, Cullen Cole is one of the last original jocks to play a strictly all-vinyl format.

Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #24--Buttkick--Space Discoteque Vol. 1

We last featured Buttkick on Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #19 in November and he had a wealth of good responses. So we decided to feature one more mix before the year ends out. Here's what Butt Kick says about "Space Discoteque:"_ "This is a recording of my latest broadcast I performed on Mixify.
I've gone for a style I regard as space disco for this one, quite deep and cosmic in places, plenty of synths.
The highlighted track for this week is "Dim Sum - Coucoud Disco (Lifelike Remix)" - quality track on the Soundress label.
Other tracks I've featured are by the likes are Matt Hughes, Ben Macklin, Ray Mang, Andy Hart and others."
Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

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!
