dj ShmeeJay‘s Ain’t No Big Thing podcast,  syndicated through iTunes and with a new musical episode released about twice per month.

This time I host Fleetwood Smack from Los Angeles, CA. After meeting in Los Angeles and comparing collections, Adam and Niles immediately formed a camaraderie. With tastes so perfectly matched playing together was a natural evolution. In their first public performance atop the Charlie The Unicorn art car at Burning Man 2011, they dropped a blend of funky, dirty, and electro house & breaks that slayed the dance floor. Immediately after returning their rented Fleetwood RV they took on the name Fleetwood Smack and in the year to follow have shared the stage with such talent as TJR, Mike Balance, and DJ Dan. With a 15 year old music collection with thousands of quality tracks, and a collective 33 years of house, breaks, and techno knowledge between them, Fleetwood Smack has what it takes to curate a set that keeps the dance floor jumping.

Check them out at all of his online spaces. SoundCloud, Facebook, and Twitter.

Fleetwood Smack’s set is their little secret, but if you ask nicely maybe they will tell you.

Rayko_Ain't No Big Thing-Freq2

dj ShmeeJay‘s Ain’t No Big Thing podcast,  syndicated through iTunes and with a new musical episode released about twice per month.

This week I host Rayko.  Spanish producer extraordinaire Rayko has been a leading light in the disco scene since 2008, the year he launched his magnificent Rare Wiri imprint. Since then his name has appeared on literally dozens of great records scattered across labels like Eskimo, Is It Balearic? and Nang. Deeply rooted in ’70s and ’80s disco, funk, boogie and rock, Rayko’s influences are masterfully interpreted and transformed into modern day dancefloor bombs.

His mind-blowing edit of Candi Staton’s ‘Broadway’ came in at number 1 in Juno’s best of 2011 disco chart, proving he’s right at the crest of the disco edit wave. But his talents don’t stop there. He’s delved into original productions and remixes, being asked to lend his skilled hand to tracks by Psychemagik, Ajello, and Ilya Santana, to name a few,…As a DJ, he’s been shipped over to the USA, Africa, Asia, South and North America and all around Europe, and his global following is quite obviously illustrated by his massive following on SoundCloud. As the months go on and his catalogue expands, Rayko is rapidly becoming one of the most loved names in modern day disco.

A Elbereth Gilthoniel

djShmeeJay_A Elbereth Gilthoniel

A simple little tune I made some time ago. Just some ambient sounds built around a sample of J.R.R. Tolkien reciting the elvish poem A Elbereth Gilthoniel, which goes like this:

A Elbereth Gilthoniel
silivren penna míriel
o menel aglar elenath!
Na-chaered palan-díriel
o galadhremmin ennorath,
Fanuilos, le linnathon
nef aear, sí nef aearon!

O Elbereth Starkindler,
white-glittering, slanting down sparkling like a jewel,
the glory of the starry host!
Having gazed far away
from the tree-woven lands of Middle-earth,
to thee, Everwhite, I will sing,
on this side of the Sea, here on this side of the Ocean

Melon,

Olof folO
