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 good man, ATL to Seattle transplant, Mark Lippert. Mark’s musical journey started with two 15’s in the back of his ’78 Corolla and has pretty much gone down hill since then. Hailing from the lazy left-coast of Florida, Mark started DJing in Atlanta 15+ years ago, and now resides in Seattle.

His primary focus is that he has no focus. All the manifestations of house are game: from slo-mo disco-infused jams to tripped-out techno and everything else in between. Being part of both the Atlanta-based Warm Art music collective and a resident with Cardio has allowed him to play with several of his music idols, like Charles Webster and Morgan Geist; as well as stalwarts like Alexi Delano, Franklin de Costa, and Ame. Plus disco-house stars Psychemagik and Eddie C, and up-and-comers like Trus’Me and Soul Clap.

In essence, Mark enjoys doing things with people who enjoy doing things with people in places where music can be enjoyed with those people.

Chugg_Ain't 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.

England seems to be the place to be for Disco-editors. Actually some of the most talented of those are situated there. Chuggin’ Edits is from Essex near London and yes – he’s a Disco-connaisseur. And yes, his Ain’t No Big Thing exclusive mix is packed with massive tunes from well-known artists. If you haven’t been familiar with the man in charge, his SoundCloud-profile offers you an immense collection of his art and everyone should be able to pic a couple of favorites amongst those.

Mr Chugg started the edit game in the summer of 2014 and his first track ever to be released on the Deep Sense label – 1st Voyage Compilation ( A Tribe Called Quest – Bonita applebum )became the best seller.  He’s also on the new Deep Sense-sampler, their second installment, so there’s certainly a lot more to be expected from the talented guy in the near future. Chuggin is also a regular soldier for the Spa In Disco Label.

Catch more of Chuggin’ Edits on SoundCloud and Facebook.
