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 DJ, producer, record label owner and local disco pioneering based in Costa Rica Napoleon. Straight out of the depths of the tropics at the late 2013, DJ, producer, record label owner and tireless crate digger Napoleon turns promptly into the Costa Rican and Central American disco pioneering gaining serious reputation worldwide through his highly acclaimed 7″ vinyl release Sudden Edit 001, the very first ever Costa Rican disco edits vinyl that arrived to record stores worldwide.

As producer, his music knows no frontiers and has been released on vinyl and digital format by well-know record labels in the game such as Kolour LTD, Editorial Records, Editor’s Kutz, Wall Of Fame, Masterworks Music, The Queen & Disco and also his own Wonderful Times record label being the first ever Latin American born and raised producer with signed music on those record labels.

Napoleon also runs Wonderful Times, the first ever Costa Rican disco edits record label and party in town with released music supported and played by scene heavyweights such as Nicky Siano, Mark Farina, Soul Clap, Nick Monaco, Jay West, Lovebirds, Jacques Renault, DJ Nature, Obas Nenor, Marcel Vogel, Fouk, Kraak & Smaak and many more. On the decks, Napoleon’s distinctive sound are usually a blend of records from peaktime vintage-sampled disco and infectious boogie to high quality funk-flavoured deepest house and somewhere in-between always pitches things down and focuses on the dancefloor.

Look for Napoleon on SoundCloud, Facebook, InstagramTwitter as well as on his blog For Devotional Use Only.

yse2_aint-no-big-thing-freq

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 the third installment, Early-Mid 90s Crossover Mix, of Yse Saint Laur’Ant‘s (YSE) three part mix series where he explores a semi-biographical history of the mellow/emotive house sound. Part 1, “Soho Radio Balearic History 80s – 90s Mix” can be found over on Silver Bear Recording‘s SoundCloud page. Part 2 “How I Remember House Pt.2 (Bar and Balearic from the early 90’s)” was presented here this summer. This third installment is YSE’s “Early-Mid 90s Crossover Mix” followed by musical ruminations.

YSE of course is a non-smoking, 5’11”, spotlight-avoiding music producer, crate digger, occasional DJ but all-round music aficionado, currently living in Hong Kong.  YSE enjoys nicely syncopated rhythms, heavy melodies, outgoing quirkiness and a quality glass of cheap Brandy and Coke – hold the ice. At weekends, likes to lead a more refined lifestyle, with his current favorite stench being anything by YSE Saint Laur’Ant or Paraíso. Bangs out music as one half of Matlock super duo Rhythm Plate so comes with a bit of history, mostly spanning 20+ years of DJing in clubs (was the only legal way of getting in!) and 17+ years of music releasing and remixing for numerous labels and artists; but don’t let that put you off. I dig what he does.

You can catch more of Yse Saint Laur’Ant on SoundCloud, Discogs, and Facebook.

Yse Saint Laur’Ant‘s set is YSE’s little secret, but if you ask nicely, perhaps he’ll give you a hint.
