Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #32--DJ Pierre and Doc Martin at The Music Room, Atlanta Feb. 21, 2015

Greetings Fam Bam,
For this next Mode.Radio Weekly Mix, I'm featuring this great 4 hour mix, released last week by The Music Room in Atlanta, by DJ Pierre and Doc Martin. This mix was done on February 21, 2015.

DJ Pierre helped to develop the house-music subgenre of acid house, as member of Phuture, whose 1987 EP Acid Tracks, which was called the first acid-house recording. DJ Pierre is considered a crucial DJ and the production wizard partly responsible for the development of Chicago acid-house. Hits that he has released include "Generate Power," "Follow Me," and "The Horn Song" (featuring Barbara Tucker).

Doc Martin represents LA and the West Coast sound. He started in 1986 playing in San Francisco with a mix of house, disco, and funk.  Doc is one of the most sought after DJs in America. Constantly touring, he can be found playing records everywhere from England to New Zealand, and everywhere in between. As the first West Coast DJ to ever hold many residencies in New York, he continues to spread the gospel according to Doc.

This set is being hailed as one of the best and as for the venue, The Music Room, this set is really putting the club on the map. Enjoy this mix!

Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #31--Erick Morillo--Essential Mix 2/14/2015

Hello Mode.Radio listeners!
We're back with our weekly mix after a short break. I was snowbound here in Nashville for about 10 days with a toddler, so my time to post was very limited. Plus, I managed to sneak in four DJ mixes during naptime which will be coming up soon.

For this week's mix, I'm posting the latest mix from one of my favorite DJ's, Erick Morillo. I fell in love with Erick after his 2005 mix for Subliminal Records, Subliminal Sessions #9. Ever since, I've always tried to keep up with his mixes and have plenty of them in my files.

Erick was born in Colombia and raised in New Jersey. He started DJing around the NJ and NY area at 11. After working with Marc Anthony, he began working with house legend, Louie Vega. From there, he recorded the classic club song, "I Like to Move It," under the name Reel 2 Real with rapper The Mad Stuntman. He has done songs with artists such as Diddy and Madonna and remixes for Diddy. Macy Gray, LL Cool J, Whitney Houston, and more.

This mix was done on Valentine's Day this year on BBC's world famous Essential Mix and it features classics from artists such as Grace Jones, new remixes from Madonna, and tracks from Basement Jaxx,white labels from Erick Morillo and more. Enjoy!
