dj ShmeeJay‘s Ain’t No Big Thing radio show, live on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month from 8pm – 10pm (PST) / 11pm – 1am (EST) on BoxFrequency.fm, and with a podcast syndicated on iTunes.

This episode I host Los Angeles based deejay Dino Soccio. LA via Chicago DJ/Producer Dino Soccio creates house and disco records that are reminiscent of the 80s soul/R&B heard on FM radio and passed down mix cassettes. With releases on Razor N Tape, Toolroom, Deep & Disco, and most recently on Mute Records, Soccio is emerging as one of LA’s most promising new dance producers. As a DJ, last year he supported Moon Boots, Penguin Prison, Roy Davis Jr, Hayden James, Satin Jackets, Michael the Lion, and had some of his biggest shows yet last November opening for Bondax on two west coast dates. Tour dates and remix work continue to stack up this new year with remixes on NDYD and Paradise ULTD while opening for Goldroom and french wonder kid FKJ. Soccio’s debut album comes out fall 2017 on Brooklyn label Razor-N-Tape.

Look for more of Dino Soccio on  SoundCloudFacebook, Twitter, Spotify, and Instagram.

dj ShmeeJay‘s Ain’t No Big Thing radio show, live on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month from 8pm – 10pm (PST) / 11pm – 1am (EST) on BoxFrequency.fm, and with a podcast syndicated on iTunes.

This episode I host Detroit based deejay and producer Pontchartrain. Detroit native and resident, Pontchartrain has been scouring record stores and DJing since 2005. During that time, his role as a producer, label manager, promoter, and foremost as a cratedigger and remixer, have helped him to, catapult into the growing nu-disco and edits scene as an already recognized and respectable force. Using the sounds of the motor city that influenced him, he has successfully approached dance music industry with a sound that is both tasteful, preserving the original integrity of the samples and songs used in the production work, as well as incorporating what is undeniably a “Detroit” feel; an underlying tone leaning towards the roots of house and techno at its core. Using a combination of analog and digital gear to recreate, re-master, re-produce and re-edit, Pontchartrain generates both brand new productions in addition to revamped versions of original masterpieces both classic and at times obscure, all geared towards making people stop looking up at the stage, and start getting down.

The moniker Pontchartrain has only been established since May of 2014 and within the same year he garnered two number one spots on Juno Download, one for his flagship EP “Devil’s Funk”, as well as several top 10 releases on vinyl only markets such as Juno, Picadilly, and Red Eye on the world renowned Edits label, Whiskey Disco, establishing him as one of the strongest introductions to the increasingly popular disco and funk revival.

As the man says; ‘All you cats and kitties out there whippin’ and wailin’ and jumping up and down and suckin’ up all that old juice and hippin’ and tellin’ each other who the greatest cat in the world is, and I’m going to put a cat on you that was the coolest, strongest, sweetest cat that ever stomped on this sweet, swingin’ sphere.

Keep the funk alive, and get back to the roots of what makes us move.’
