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 Oslo’s Beatwell.  Beatwell’s love for music has been a constant in his life, always seeking fresh cuts from obscure places, never mainstream but mainstream enough for everyone to dance. His musical heartrate dates back to the last century, where old school hip-hop, classic disco and birth of electronica all made a lasting impression, and forever inspiring him to think differently and dare to look outside the norm.

In my own personal opinion, a grade A music selector.

Look for more of Beatwell on SoundCloud, MixCloudFacebook, HearThis.at , and Instagram.

This episode i host good man, ATL to Seattle transplant, Mark Lippert. Mark’s musical journey started with two 15’s in the back of his ’78 Corolla and has pretty much gone down hill since then. Hailing from the lazy left-coast of Florida, Mark started DJing in Atlanta 15+ years ago, and now resides in Seattle.

His primary focus is that he has no focus. All the manifestations of house are game: from slo-mo disco-infused jams to tripped-out techno and everything else in between. Being part of both the Atlanta-based Warm Art music collective and a resident with Cardio has allowed him to play with several of his music idols, like Charles Webster and Morgan Geist; as well as stalwarts like Alexi Delano, Franklin de Costa, and Ame. Plus disco-house stars Psychemagik and Eddie C, and up-and-comers like Trus’Me and Soul Clap.

In essence, Mark enjoys doing things with people who enjoy doing things with people in places where music can be enjoyed with those people.

drop-out_aint-no-big-thing-freq2

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.

This episode i host Swedish disco dons Drop Out Orchestra, and this show is just my favorite.

It’s hardly a secret that over the past decade Scandinavia has been the epicenter of the nu-disco scene, artists like Lindstrom and Prins Thomas turning out release after release that looked to the cosmos, sparkling like exploding nebula. For Sweden’s Drop Out Orchestra though escape velocity could be found not on the launchpad but in the equally transcendent sweat filled club scene of New York in the late 70s.

Taking their cues from original Disco pioneers such as MFSB as much as DFA, Drop Out Orchestra launched themselves onto the scene in 2008 with a seemingly endless supply of bootlegs, re-edits and covers that glittered like a frost covered mirror ball. Taking tracks by everyone from TLC and Daft Punk to Rick Astley and The Sex Pistols they transformed them into the kind of luxurious, gloriously sophisticated, and indeed soulful disco, that would have made Chic proud.

With their irresistibly taut and funky bass lines, satin sheet strings and never too much cowbell, The Drop Out Orchestra found themselves in demand as official remixes for both club scene peers such as Black Strobe and Flight Facilities and industry legends like Paul Weller. Meanwhile not content with just making other people’s music 100% more disco, original tracks, including collaborations with Ronika and LCD Soundsytem’s Nancy Whang, on labels like Eskimo Recordings and Gomma cementing their position as ones to watch.

Meanwhile whilst most their peers were transitioning to laptops and USB sticks, Drop Out Orchestra continue to bring live elements back into the dance music, not just in the studio but in the clubs too. Blurring the divide between live and DJ performances by incorporating live bass and electronics, a Drop Out Orchestra set is about as close to a guaranteed party starter as you’ll get in this business and seen them hand picked to play alongside everyone from Fatboy Slim to Gilles Peterson.

Drop Out Orchestra can also be found here: Facebook, Twitter, MixCloud, and Resident Advisor.
