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.’

Look for more of Pontchartrain on his websiteSoundCloud, Twitter, and Facebook.

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,
