Mix / June 2016 Round Up / Part 2

Bookended by modern-sounding House mutations discovered on “The Lost Tape”, the music takes flight with the boss Electronic Fusion of Jon Tye & Ruf Dug`s Cherry Garcia. It runs into a (re-issued) Italian Who Does It Better at the Bossa Nova Civic Club and catches a funky Hammond “Big Fish” courtesy of more Italians at Hell Yeah! A “Big Fish” and Jorge Velez` “Baby Whale” (recalling the urgency of Jay Denham`s “White Flight” and the incredible Legowelt). MK VII`s Romeo fails to woo his Juliet, and the Crooked Man laments a love that he shouldn`t have let go (DFA have an album of material lined up from the veteran DJ / producer, of which “Happiness” is just a sublime Deep House taste). Harmonious Thelonious takes his Diskant Voodoo on holiday, has it partying on an open-air dance floor in the Mediterranean. Ptaki remix their countryman, Niemoc. (more) Italians Tempelhof remix Ibiza`s Jose Padilla. Still with Italy, Common Series becomes XXXV Gold Fingers for What Ever Not. In a confused U.K. Chaos In CBD kick out a future classic.
