Tell us about yourself:

To be a good DJ you must develop the hunger’, Brewster and Broughton write in their book. Thang agrees. The hunger to smell new  well beforehand, the hunger that brings water to your mouth when discovering a lost collection of dusty vinyl, the hunger to dig into the past and revive old jams. Teasing and crowd pleasing are not a question of ‘or’, but of ‘when’. Obscure disco dubs next to high energy r&b next to slow motion techno next to Blondie next to a vintage rave classic, next to the next, rising on the horizon club banger? Anything goes, it’s all about the balance. And versatility. And… You get the picture.

     1. Koreless –  Sun

I was driving around Gent with a huge hangover. I switched on the radio, and Lefto’s radio show was playing. Always quality!  There is no drop en no beat at all! 🙂

It was also the last closing song for the first edition to  1988 in Kompass with Len Faki.

    2. Quiet Village – Pillow Talk

What i really like about this blog that you can just submit mellow songs, you are not asking for the next 10 techno bangers. Those songs are usually the one’s that you can never play at a gig, but they still express who you are!

Matthew from Radioslave has also started up this side project Quiet Village that is more easygoing and calm.

   3. Ultravox – Monument

Its more a poppy sound but you can go everywhere with this kind of track!

  4. Patrick Cowley – Mockingbird Dream

Pre-wave but its still spacy as fuck

He did just to much for the pop music, but left us too soon. He is often credited as a pioneer of electronic dance music. In 1971, at the age of 21, Cowley moved to San Francisco to attend the City College of San Francisco where he studied music, specifically the use of synthesizers.

  5. Chilly Gonzales – Knight Moves

I saw him once in Brussels. A really charming and warm person from Canada. He knows english and french so he had like the whole crowd in the club going bananza!

Your top 5 picks & why:

 

1)  51 Days – Paper Moon 

Legendary label from the early nineties. All releases (mostly from Dobre, Zki & Jamez) were really good & still sound very fresh 23 years after release.

2) Spike – Kanti Datum (Abel rmx)

Just buy the full album “Orange Cloud Nine” where the original is included. All winners on it. This is a more “dance friendly” edit from Red Light Radio’s Abel.

3) A Vision Of Panorama – Cacades

Solid & melodic track with the typical AVOP sound in it. I’ve played this one a lot in the Texture Radio shows & when I’m doing the warming-up or closing down I mostly have it with me. 

4) Midnight Zone – Danger Zone

This was re-released on the PPU label a few years ago. All time classics & a perfect one for early mornings.

5) Pino Daniele – Yes I Know My Way

Good memories on this track but haven’t played it out much. Always hesitating if it’s the perfect moment or not and then I forget to play it … 😉

One day!

Your top 5 picks & why:

 

  1. Elvis Presly “Fever” I have played this track many times in the early morning , has a very sexy but at the same time creepy sound to it                                                                                                    
  2. Diana Ross “Sweetest Hangover” great track by a queen, perfect for after hours… starts off real slow and when you think it’s almost time to go home, the beat picks up a notch to an upbeat disco tempo                                                                                                                                                    
  3. The reflex “I feel good, James Brown edit” incredible edit by the Reflex, love how he cut the drums up and stretched them, this tune is sooo funky you won’t ever want to go home                 
  4. Marvin Gaye “sexual healing” When the night is almost over and you want to take that girl home, this is the track you’ll convince her with your suave moves                                                              
  5. Notorious B.I.G. “big poppa” tell your friends to call my friends, so we can be friends…. The perfect afterparty track, picture a Jacuzzi, champagne, beats, blunts and beautiful women
