Shoot the Moon

"The freak with the top hat is leaving with the basketball. Cover the freak....Tell the men, it's time to shoot the moon!"

I've been promising a disco mix for a while, and this weekend I finally got it together and finished it up. This is 14 tracks of smoked out, dubby disco edits that put a smile on my face. Nice and slow, lots of spaced out effects, slow motion funk for Sgt. Stedenko and the freak in the top hat (mostly for the freak). I used a bunch of edits from Deep& Disco and Munga, who are all killing the disco reedit scene right now. Check their Soundclouds for serious midtempo disco damage.

You can stream the set below, or download the mp3 directly using the link below. Better yet, follow the instructions on the top right side of this page to sign up for the podcasts, which will beam all our sets right into your iTunes/iPod fresh out the oven!

3AM Request Line

I keep trying to switch things up, really I do. I've been working on a sleazy disco mix for you all, and it's coming along fine, but I keep getting distracted by wobbly, face-melting breaks and dubstep when I step beind the mixer! Here's another bass-heavy set I put together a couple of weeks ago that I hope you'll enjoy. It's the polar opposite of Mo's last mix (which I suppose is the point), and definitely will get you humming on your morning commute (legal disclaimer: not liable for moving violations incurred while consuming this product).
