Yup, the time has come!
Sunday is the day I spin two cool hours of Cosmic Disco at Picnik Electronik, from 14h to 16h!
Trust me, this set is SO going to fit with the weather and the venue! 😉
Sunday’s edition is at JARDIN DES FLORALIES, not at the Calder stabile, as usual!
The reason Sunday’s edition is at Jardin des Floralies is because of the Fête des enfants, so it’s likely the parking spaces will be sparse unless you get there really early.
I strongly suggest parking near a metro station and using the tube to get to Parc Jean-Drapeau and then the shuttle to make it to the Jardin.
See you there!
I’ve just completed a little round of shopping on Beatport and I just HAD to share this bomb with y’all!
Living my Life – Roberto Rodriguez (Plastic City)
Now, Rodriguez, originally from Helsinki (check out his brief bio by clicking this link), is not a newcomer to the scene, and some of his productions have been featured in my mixes before.
He’s one of the producers I’ve favourited in Beatport because his productions are always top quality, but this new track on Plastic City just blew my mind intstantly!
Pay close attention to his subtle use of a TB-303-like sound in there (the low warbly one that comes in before the high squelchy one). Absolutely delightful!
It has all the makings of a classic, it is the kind of track I wish I had composed, and I say that without any trace of jealousy, only with great awe and admiration!
No need to bet your money: this track is obviously gonna be in my next mix AND it will play during my set @ Picnik Electronik, on August 16th, that is for SURE!
To celebrate the return of Fred Everything in Montreal today (@Picnik Electronik tonight at 8pm), I’ve decided to share my favourite tracks by my old friend from Quebec City.
I stayed within his album productions because had I decided to choose among his hundreds of productions and remixes, it would’ve been a tad complicated to pick just a few.
Hop to see y’all there today! “Opening” for Fred are Slim Jim, Justin Long and JT Donaldson.
If you can’t make it, there’s always the Lazy Days Recordings podcasts mixed by Fred which you can download.
From Light of Day – Elevate feat. The New Mastersounds
From Lost Together – Mile End
From Under the Sun – Revolution
…guess what percentage of this top ten Joris Voorn will spin today at Picnik Electronik?
Joris Voorn’s Dusty Summer Festival Tunes 09
Over a multiple hours set (he’ll play at least 4 hours), he’s most likely to play all of them, unless he does more of a live set than DJing.
Whichever, whatever, it should be a cool set, especially if he plays my track of the week, which was a remix he did recently released on Compost.
I’ve recently, as many people who were in attendance, had the chance to catch Matthew Chicoine, better known under his moniker Recloose, spinning a GREAT set at Piknic Electronik.
Now, I’m not the star-struck fan-type, but I did look up the man on Facebook once I came home that afternoon, partly because I wanted to ask him directly whether he really is from Montreal, because since he’s also named Chicoine, I’m curious about the off-chance that we might have common ancestry, and to thank him for his set — especially for dropping Galaxy 2 Galaxy’s Jupiter Jazz.
So, couple of weeks later, he accpeted my contact request on FB, which in turned allowed me to learn about Matthew’s blog, Hit It and Quit It.
The place is a treasure trove of podcasts by Matthew and others, but also download links to some of his productions and other goodies, like, forexample, links to seven recordings of Jeff Mills’ radio show in the 80s!
Don’t miss out on this one!
