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.

Pontchartrain’s set is his little secret.

This episode I host Gradient Logic, from Saint Petersburg, Russia.  Gradient Logic represents the tandem  sound of two sound producers, Andrew and Ed,  with a focus on mostly house music. Intense and sophisticated artworks by Ed combined with the fine taste and disco grooves from Andrew give rise to the distinct house music produced by Gradient Logic. They’re frequent guests in Saint-Peterburg’s bar and club scene.  Side by side these guys have come a long way from the humble beginnings in ordinary edits to advanced sampling with releases on Masterworks Music, DiscoDat Records, as well as Disco Fruit Records. Gradient Logic are open to any collaborations and always ready to share some ol’ good disco beats, so if you’re interested don’t be shy to reach out!

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.
