OTAM Mix 06: Jan Krueger & Daze Maxim – ‘Berlin Underground’

October 23, 2008

This Saturday the 25th of October 2008, the über-exciting Amsterdam Dance Event will cumulate to an appropriate climax through the ‘Vrijbuiters go Berlin Underground’ indoor festival we are organizing at Studio K, Amsterdam’s latest and trendiest hot-spot in the east part of town.
Four areas of high-profile electronic dance music hosting massive line-ups plus extended opening hours. Yup, yup, 10 p.m. till 11 a.m. baby!
Be sure to pass by the event if you’re in the Amsterdam area. We are hosting a very special Hello?Repeat label showcase, and thus I thought it would be appropriate to treat you to 2 mixes of the label owners and founders, Jan Krueger and Daze Maxim. Enjoy.

October 13, 2008

A Sum Of Epic Parts

October 10, 2008

This 2004 landmark collaboration between Kenny Dixon Jr., Marcellus Pittman, Rick Wilhite & Theo Parrish achieves an unequalled level of cohesiveness in mixing all the influences of their individual musical backgrounds. It’s like listening to their infamous DJ sets all rolled into one: Chicago house, Detroit techno, disco, boogie, soul, jazz, if they play it, it’s mixed in there with no one sound outweighing any other. If you have a craving for Detroit house and you don’t have this, you really need to get it.
