OTAM Mix 24: Frodo – ‘Mahogany Cult Vol. 2’

June 2, 2010

This follow-up take on distorted slow-burn disco-funk and boogie electronics as a melange of Detroit tech-house is a cumulation of Rick Wade, Kyle Hall, STL, Rick Wilhite, Anton Zap & Billy Love instrumentals. A true reflection of my personal soulfulness through this musical potion of deeeep songs drenched in obscure house beats. A clear declaration that states: ‘Mahogany Cult is takin’ over’!

Jazz In Outer Space

This band called BSTC just blew my mind, with their marvelous new disco played live. A quick video snack to keep you peckish for that next post.

Here’s a song I can play over & over again [and believe me, I have]: Board of Canada’s infectious synth take on Midnight Star’s ‘Midas Touch’, now lovingly re-synched to the original video.

OTAM Mix 10: San Proper – ‘To Heal Live @ Radio 100’

January 29, 2009


San Propers‘ influence has spread far and wide during recent years, but this longtime collaborator and friend has been on the forefront of my attention for more then a decade. Standing shoulder to shoulder with DJ’s such as Theo Parrish, Moodymann and Rahaan, San has proved to be Amsterdam’s most popular advocate of vintage funk, thrusting disco and straightup structuring house beats.
This mix was recorded 8 years ago during my weekly radio show called ‘Earsmear’ on DFM, and displays just the right blend of forbidding atmosphere, subtle funkiness, samples and noise. Repeated play recommended.

Disco Not Disco

January 19, 2009


Outspoken veteran dance-music producer and a theremin enthusiast, Daniel Wang was born in Tibet and spent bits of his childhood in Taiwan and California. In the late ’80s he moved to New York to attend college and fell in with the club scene, eventually becoming involved as a house and disco DJ. He started Balihu which became his primary outlet, and eventually abandoned the use of samples altogether in an effort to emulate the producers who have inspired him. This 1997 track was released on the ‘Mood Mylar‘ 12″, which favors a strong craze for eccentric repetition, fun and diversity. Exuberant neo-electro.
