Leon Vynehall – Midnight On Rainbow Road

Gerd Janson’s impeccable taste in music is well-documented on two Computer Incarnations For World Peace compilations (I & II) and, of course, his DJ-mixes (make sure to check his appearance on the Hessle Audio show!) The spiritual successor to the mentioned compilations has to be the “Musik for Autobahns” series on Dutch label Rush Hour. Hot off the shelf, the second installment features the majestic tune by Leon Vynehall you can hear above. Reason for me to check, if not buy the record.

You can pick up “Musik for Autobahns” on CD and vinyl, directly from Rush Hour – or every good record store.

RBMA Lecture: Scuba

Finally, the Red Bull Music Academy unlocked the lecture I wanted to post the other day: it’s Gerd Janson in conversation with Hotflush founder Scuba.

As usual, you can expect a talk about Scuba‘s influences, his early attempts at making music, setting up the label and so forth.

Mixtape Monday #9

Let’s start this first Mixtape Monday of the year with Dorian Concept‘s NYE Mix for LuckyMe. Dorian was spending his new year up in Scotland and put together this mix to promote the party he was playing at.

For more music of that kind, you should give Devonwho‘s mix for the Elm&Oak Podcast a try. And Montreal’s cmd/ctrl made a guestmix for Mondayjazz, just in case you’re on running short on beats.

Tempa’s Headhunter got on the SoundCloud train and has a mixtape to share. You can stream it from here or download it there.

As you might know Nite Jewel and Stones Throw’s Dâm-Funk are now working on an album-collaboration as Nite-Funk. Consequentially, Stones Throw asked Ramona to contribute a guestmix for their latest podcast.

For Resident Advisor, this mixtape from Brendon Moeller was mix of the week. I’m not so sure about that, at least it’s not as good as the one Brendon did for Resident Advisor way back.

The website of Bratislava’s Nu Spirit club has quite some mixtapes for you to download. I can recommend the Kid Kong Mix (direct link) from Gerd Janson.

SpaceBass are paying tribute to 4hero’s Reinforced label, one for the oldskool junglists out there.

Ramadanman posted this old Ruffage Session on Twitter this week. After listening to it repeatedly over the weekend, I decided to share it with you.
