Paper DJ delivers

By DAVID DAY  |  February 13, 2007

E-Marcé recently released a 20-minute promo-MP3 mix that’s available here. It’s called Bawston Electro-Shock Mix, and though the mixing will not win any DJ trophies, the track selection is the youngest bunch of party music you’ve ever seen. Included in the rough-and-tumble mix are the Presets, Nebraska synth-dance group the Faint, and a remix from recent Hearthrob party guests Guns N’ Bombs; near the end, Marcelino even touches on techno. The hip factor moves into the red zone when NYC dance band the Rapture get remixed by French princes Simian Mobile Disco. Micro mixes like these aim to represent a playlist rather than show off mix prowess. This one really goes large when E-Marcé rocks a remix from local DJ/producer RED FOXXWORTH, who’s promoting his own Thug Rave brand, with a blend of “Middlefinger” from Matteo Dimarr.

Local house label SLANTED HOUSE has released three new tracks of techie, dark house that you can snap up at places like Beatport.com. Resident DJ D-LAV will surely spin the new stuff this Saturday, February 17, when he plays in the lounge at Rise in support of Portugal’s CARLOS FAUVRELLE.
