Luxxury - Good Morning Disco

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 California based producer, deejay, rapscallion extraordinaire LUXXURY. LUXXURY  broke out in 2013 with the release of a series of unofficial remixes called “LUXXURY Edits” using only original multitrack stems for a number of famous songs including Eagles’ “Hotel California”, Duran Duran’s “Girl on Film”and many more. As a result of the attention he received (Wall Street Journal, LA Times, Vice etc.) he began to get commissioned remix work from artists such as Greg Wilson, Melanie Martinez and Fitz & The Tantrums. In 2016 LUXXURY released a series of original singles, appeared on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly, and got support from outlets as Majestic Casual, Spin and Complex. LUXXURY has had more than 2 million streams on Spotify with over 200k average monthly listeners.

LUXXURY, fresh out with a new smooth yet dance-able magic hour-tinged love song, “I Need You”. Singer/Producer/Multi Instrumentalist Blake Robin explains: “It’s the most honest song I’ve ever written, indeed when I sing it live I blush from revealing myself in public so shamelessly. But frankly I’m a bit of an exhibitionist, so it all works out.” On keys once again is Robin’s frequent collaborator Billy Caruso, whose shimmering Rhodes line gives the otherwise upbeat dance song an aching, melancholy tone. Guest bassist Joe Karnes from Fitz and the Tantrums gives Robin’s original bassline a punch in the gut, elevating it to disco funk heaven.

And all of that for Ain’t No Big Thing,

jb-dizzy_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.
According to Juno, JB Dizzy is a newbie to the scene, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Just think of him as an old soul that got lost on the way back to the Disco. Dave Backes AKA JB Dizzy got his start DJing in the golden era of Hawaii’s underground house music scene in the mid to late 90’s, and quickly became a regular selector on its circuit.

Moving back to the mainland just before the DJ boom, Dave took many years off (aside from many guest appearances when he traveled back home to Hawaii) until 2012 when he teamed up with North Florida’s Garage crew, a group of artists who shared the same passion for rooted house music, disco, funk and global soul. The Garage quickly gained notoriety for its underground flavor and true-skool vibes.

In 2015, JB Dizzy signed to Discoalition Records out of France and released two tracks, gaining the attention of some of Nudisco’s respected DJs around the globe such as Fingerman, dj ShmeeJay, Evil Smarty, Rafael Cancian, Tonbe, Goby and many more. Tonbe’s Disco Fruit imprint was the next stop for the sophomore effort and JB’s Midnight Power EP fared well, with its title track appearing on Disco Fruit Selections Vol. 4 (subsequently assisting the LP to gain to the 3rd position on Juno’s NuDisco Album chart).

Taking a long break from the edits/reworks, Dave joined back with the Garage Party founders Ancient Deep (whom have been holding their own over at Open Bar Music, Intimate Venues Recordings and Soul Clap Records) to form Immers Music, and is due for another EP with Immers at the end of the year.

Beyond the busy year and “re-awakening” if you will, JB Dizzy is also a reoccurring DJ guest with Orlando’s Crosstown Sounds monthly party and has forthcoming remixes coming out in the future on their newly established Xtowns label.

LeSale_Ain't 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 Austrian producer, dj and producer Sammy Jenkins, aka LeSale. Unlike many other producers, LeSale doesn’t claim to have an obnoxious uncle with an immense record collection or a far away cousin who was a cult DJ in the disco-era – all his love and interest for collecting, playing and producing music was self-generated in his late teens, where he went from listening to hip hop to vocal house, edging slightly on the latin & broken beat movement, whence he returned to house and finally touched base with disco music, quickly realizing that all the music he loved evolved somehow from this truly inspiring genre. He also produced remixes for Voyeurrhythm, Undertones, Dikso, MB Disco & Audio Parallax.

Renowned for his elegant edits and unique style, LeSale’s work finds its’ way swiftly into a couple of mixes, digital DJ-Bags and some blogs on the interweb. In the depths of winter, 2011, he finally got connected with Simonlebon, Lee Stevens, Jakobin & Domino to form the label Luv Shack Records.

Also look for LeSale on Facebook, Discogs, and Resident Advisor.
