Martin Hayes_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 Leipzig, Germany based producer and deejay Martin Hayes. Martin founded, along with fellas LuvLess, M.ono, Lars and Eva, imprint label called Rose Records. As an “Hymne à l’Amour” from slow mid – range house tempo, the label and its artists quickly gained recognition for pushing boundaries of disco & house to a global message where everything is made out of love and where “La Vie en rose” sits atop their arts and become a vision toward their music. Believing in slower music, like soul and disco tracks mixed with the house music, Martin plays a mixture of house & disco in all its aspects, forming a perfect balance on the dance floor. A tireless vinyl collector from soul, funk, hip hop, house music and disco, his releases reveals the true character of a bottomless skilled producer with records signed to Lazare Hoche Edits, Razor-N-Tape Reserve, Editorial, Pantha Rhei as of course his home base Rose Records.

Look for Martin Hayes on SoundCloud and Facebook as well as Rose Record’s Facebook page.

Recorded live over brunch at Herringbone in La Jolla, California, with the sun shining in, a cool breeze blowing through the sky lights, couples eating breakfast and little children playing and dancing along with the music.

Mix up a Bloody Mary, pour yourself a cup of coffee and sit back, relax and enjoy the gentle passing of time.

A mix brought together in a swirl of inspiration associated with the Mexican celebration of dia de los muertos (Day of the Dead) as well as a radio show that I heard on NPR a few months back. The mix features, mostly, music from dead musicians and songs that are played in a minor key.
