And it's phenomenal!
Some people consider Ritchie Hawtin a British DJ. Some people say he's a Canadian DJ and still some call him a Detroit DJ. In actuality, he's all 3, Born in the UK, Ritchie later moved to Windsor, Canada, across the border from Detroit. He started the wave of techno DJs that came out of the Detroit area in the late 80's. He has since evolved to a producer and a record label exec.
Here's the tracklisting:
Almost a year and a half to be exact....
This is one of my favorite all time mix and it's by South Africa's own Black Coffee.
I have featured Black Coffee 2 times before here on Mode after seeing him open for Marques Wyatt in Oakland. As you may know, Black Coffee has been DJing since 1994 and began to get worldwide recognition in 2004 from his mix for the Red Bull Music Academy. In September 2015, he won the DJ of the year at Ibiza.
This mix was done at a club that is in the offices of MixMag magazine and it's an amazing set. There's no tracklisting, but it's great to enjoy and download.

I was feeling nostalgic this week.I was looking around for a mix this week and I found this exclusive mix that DJ Seba did for the website last month.
Seba isn't some random DJ. He's been around the d'n'b scene since 1995. I first heard of him through LTJ Bukem's label Good Looking records with his track with Lo-Tek called "Sonic Winds." A couple of years later, Seba started his own label Secret Operations in Sweden. Even though he was putting out some d'n'b tracks at that time, he was mainly mixing and producing house tracks. That was until 2003, when Secret Operations began increasing the amount of d'n'b tracks on their label.
This mix was done in celebration of 2 releases Seba did last December, "Jungle Music" and "Cloudless." You can read the interview and hear those tracks here. There's no tracklisting, but if you're a fan of 90's d'n'b or you want to know where dubstep sound generated from, this is the mix. Enjoy and download!

DJ Ron Pullman is considered the Godfather of Southern House music. The Denver based DJ has his biggest audiences in many cities in the South including Atlanta, Birmingham, Charlotte and more. He has 30 years of experience DJing, opening for such acts as Larry Heard, Ron Trent, and Marques Wyatt.
We have had Ron on Mode.Radio many times before but it has been a couple of years. Recently, he's put out a couple of mixes and "Thunderous Grooves" is one of the best I have downloaded. Here's what he said about the mix:
I usually title my mixes based on "Life Experiences"... brief story how i titled this mix. As i was recording this mix it was thundering and lightning outside, (SMH, i know, crazy!) A blend of New and Classic House Tunes. Dedicated to my A T L House Family!!!
Enjoy and download!

I also hope you enjoy this last mix.
I was looking for a good mix and I stumbled upon DJ Soup out of British Columbia. Deep House loveliness only 2 Days old....
Soup helped grow the dance culture in Nelson BC Canada from a small town party scene to hosting one of the most legendary festivals in the world, Shambhala Music Festival CANADA. He has performed from Europe to Brazil, all over the USA and Canada.
This mix is downloadable and completely worth it. Enjoy!

Last night, I went out in Atlanta to Afrotopia to see DJ Kemit. Before I went, I got an alert from my old friend DJ Red (Wayne Alan Baugh) about an afterhours....
I had to go (after the loveliness of Kemit and Salah Ananse) and now I'm recovering.
But at least my body hurts from good dancing. Now you can relive my experience by listening to this new daily mix from DJ Red. This was done 6 days ago and it's (as usual) pure house goodness. Great for recovering....
BTW, this is our next to last Holiday Daily Mix. Look out for a really good one tomorrow!
