Kontakt 65: In Too Deep - March Podcast
March 31, 2014 05:14 PM PDT

Back in Orlando! Yeah it's been way, way too long. The breakz have definitely kept super fresh in my absence, that's for sure. Shout outs to the Fundamental Breakz Collective, NLP, and Underground Sound for doing such a good job of keeping Orlando alive for so long! Even on Thursday nights you can go out and hear sick beats somewhere for cheap or even free, spun by LEGENDS.

The last month has been really great for me musically. If you didn't already know, when I started off spinning on 12", it was Florida Breakz - so this is like a trip back to my roots for me. I have been connecting with some of the producers I have't talked to before which is really nice. Being in Orlando, I've been a magnet for sick break beats lately. That and friendly Disney employees. I haven't put much time in to following breakz in a while because i haven't been playing events they would fit with, or even going to them. It didn't take very long to drown myself in this sick music as soon as I planted my feet on the ground in Orlando.

I'm totally on the breakz tip now and I'll be spending a decent amount of time in Florida this year so - expect lots more where this came from.

I was back in the studio for the last two months working on some projects that I've put off for way too long. It really paid off - I was able to really focus on this mix and it came out great! February was full of some really great house music in my circles. I've been back in the DC area and it's always been the place for me to go and fill my mind, my body, and my soul, with serious house music. All night long, seriously. I'm really happy to be back there. I only had one gig in February but it really got me in the mood to lay out this studio mix proper. Two months on track selection was really nice to have also smiley That's all the news for this month. Headed down to Florida for March and can not wait to see what the future holds winking

It's been a crazy fun month for Kontakt Recordings! We've been keeping each moment exciting with new parties, been digging up a ton of new music, and have been staying nice and toasty in Los Angeles!

While "DJ Kontakt" himself has been kicking off some dance-floor grooves, such as LA's own Basis techno and house party, he's been having his "little helpers" on the East Coast crank up the volume for the next podcast.

This month's podcast comes from our Philadelphia friend SKTTRBRAIN. If you've been keeping up with us, you may have heard her a few times before. SKTTRBRAIN has had a lot of fun this January hunting down some fresh beats as well as bringing in some new spins on some of our favorite house and techno tracks.

As always, we promise you a pleasurable journey through psyche and sound.

Kontakt 62: The Next Chapter - December Podcast

Oh it's cold outside now no matter where you are now - I'm pretty sure of that. Even in Florida its cuddle weather every night! Every year I tell you all to get your asses on to the dancefloor to keep warm. It works every time!

This month I'm keeping with the last 5 years tradition of a warm fuzzy trance mix that comes out once a year in the winter. Months go in to this one, with track selection, mixing, and editing way better than the standard live mix on the podcast. It's always a blast to put it together and I'm proud of this one every year.

If the world was a different place, I never would have stopped spinning trance. It just wasn't ever going to land me a gig and I thought that I could never be good enough in the studio to produce the genre so I switched over to house and break beats. It was a good move but this is the music I really connect with the most. Maybe some day I will land a gig to play music like this, but honestly there is zero demand for it unless you are a big name. Oh well! Enjoy the mix smiley

And it turns out that I did have some good trance in me to get out in the studio after all:

Kontakt 61: Live @ The Boogie Lab - November Podcast

My 2013 residency at Dim Mak came to a close this November with a pretty big bang. I opened up for Them Jeans to a packed room of crazy people ready to tear off their clothes and get nasty on the dance floor. Just the way I like it... It was a rockin night in Holyweird as usual and a fat xstack of freaks came out to celebrate Altered States 3 year anniversary at this one.

I went pretty retro with this set, which means *awesome* by the way. It was nice to dive back in to the house I was spinning before "electro" ever fabricated in to it's own genre. Wicked house keys, divas, funky basslines and Miami vibe was what I was all about a few years back, before things all started to sound the same.

Still slowly working on getitng up the podcast backlog...

I've landed a residency at Dim Mak Studios in Hollywood once a month for a disco party called The Boogie Lab. Wow am I happy this is going down! I can put some focus towards my music and really let it blow up proper with my sets. I've been in to this kind of music from the beginning (like since I was 12) but I really only recently got in to DJing it about 3 years ago. DJ Dan led the way to say the least. It's been a great trip since then, a lot of my favorite house producers have come in to the disco realm and I love what they are putting out. So, any third Friday you are in Hollywood, come out to Dim Mak Studios and get your dose of Kontakt!

I could go on for quite a while about this stuff. But I won't, because nobody reads this anyway!

Keep your ears on the mixcloud, I'll be uploading some more podcast archives soon!

I really like throwing down in dirty warehouses. This was one of those kinds of places. It was a great crowd in this spot coming out after the enormous Hard Summer Festival - 70,000 people were there. Not nearly as much were at this afterparty nearby, but it was still bangin in side the box. I got to play right before one of my favorite LA DJ's went on, Thee-O. it was so cool to be up on stage next to that legendary guy, I've been following him and his sexy groovy techy beats for almost 3 years now. A real staple of the underground.

This set was all over the place, from disco to electro to breakbeats. it was a blast to throw it down for the heads that showed up and the crowd was really grooving with me out there smiley

Enjoy the set!

This month features a wild high energy mix from BassAnus who we have been promoting for about a year and a half now at a lot of underground shows ans with bootleg releases. Very much a new school vibe, all you old fogeys out there will probably not like this one bit. But you know what? Get with the times! There is still good music out there even if it isn't what it used to be. This set is about dancing, partying, and having a wild time smiley
