Josef Calamusa, creator and lone ranger behind LAY BAC, has crafted us “SOULS/VIBES” which is a shiny bundle of gems that will dee-lite the senses. “SOULS/VIBES” is a perfect mixture of groove and texture much like LAY BAC’s own audio concoctions all of which will beam you into the sky via sunbeams. This mix is bound to take you back to those golden days and also to unknown pleasures…

“This is a mix of old and new songs that inspire my sound. Most of the older stuff on here was introduced to me by my parents when I was a wee lad. I hope you enjoy it!

Hottub – LOKOS ONLY


The homies from Hottub have dropped a new track “LOKOS ONLY” an electro hip-hop jam that pays homage to the infamous drink that will make you turbo crunk and it’s also a reference to the grimey West Oakland party house that shares the name as the track.

These Disco Oakland Queens came with a solid follow up to last years “ON BLAST” Ep. So keep your eyes peeled for these LOKA’S in heaven throughout 2011!

party time!

“fresh like” – a mix by eloi


So it’s been a long while since my last mix, so i felt the itch to compile yet another…and here it is!!! I feel it would be perfect for those fantasy nite dance parties where everyone on the dancefloor luminates a pulsating neon glow, or maybe consider it for those weekend trips to the moon. Basically anytime you feel your dancing shoes are due for a spin, “fresh like” will accommodate. So please…indulge. And if you like, you should come party with us at the Radio Bar (in Oakland) on Dec 18 for a Booze-Wazi christmas where we’ll be spinning jams along with DJ Quest with live painting and projections and who know’s what else (costumes? drunk santas? aliens?). Have a gander and pleasure your ears & feet for a while…

Dara Puspita – The Garage Years LP


Can’t get enough Dara Puspita….here’s more. After a few CD reissues on the wonderful Sublime Frequencies label, Dara Puspita (which translates to the Flower Girls) get the “best of” treatment. Since the early original LP’s of theirs are basically extinct, Groovie Records took it upon themselves to select some of Dara Puspita’s classics from all of their albums and put them back on vinyl. If you’ve never heard of or listened to the sensations of 60’s Indonesia, this would be a wonderful time and place to start. This is definitely a record you need to listen to….

Lee Douglas – The Douglas Sound EP


Southern California label, Black Disco, have been putting out superb disco records since 2008. They release both new original and newly re-edited disco gems from such artists as Nitedog, Lovefingers, and Basso to name a few. For the “edit” releases they get different artists each time to put together a 12″ of freshly sliced and diced goodness. So far they have 9 volumes of the Black Disco edits….and this particular dee-lite by Lee Douglas is Volume 2. “Cum n’ Go” is a re-edit of The Freedom Machine “Jangada” which is a wonderful meeting of Spanish-style guitar strums and interstellar disco. As for the rest of the songs, see for yourself below….and by the way, “Hide n’ Seek” is a re-edit of Asha Puthli and “Fuego” is an edit of Misa Criolla’s song of the same name.

LA Vampires & Matrix Metals – So Unreal



Amanda Brown, who is LA Vampires, knows whats up. First she hooked up with the up-and-coming dream pop heavyweight Zola Jesus on a collaborative EP earlier this year which was fantastic on some many levels. And what does she do to follow that up….teams up with the mysterious Matrix Metals (who i believe are from the future) to concoct this work of granulated dream pop ballads, and of course they are skewed to that Matrix Metals magic. Definitely worth a gander….

Tracklist
1. Make Me Over
2. How Would U Know
3. Don’t Dance Alone
4. Berlin Baby
5. Still Going Down
