mike simonetti is a man with a pretty unimpeachable cv. founder of troubleman unlimited records (home of chromatics and glass candy – destined to be THE bands of this year – and countless more great acts). creator of the italians do it better blog that has just spun off into a record label and put out the brilliant after dark compilation. a sought after dj who celebrates his birthday by playing with carl craig in new york.

basically, we hate him.

but mike has been good enough to ignore our petty jealousy in order to do a mix for us. mike told us that he “tried a new experiment and didn’t beatmatch for once. wanted to add “atmosphere” and crap like that!” its one that’s paid off.

mike hasn’t given us a tracklisting for this one but safe to say it starts with buckingham nicks classic “frozen love” and just gets better. a corker.

get the after dark compilation here.

blue room mix – by studio (43.80mb, 45:00mins)

dan lissvik and rasmus hägg, are studio. based in gothenburg, the duo delight in making earthy, organic music that walks the delicate tightrope between (kraut)rock and dance. after shaping swedish independent label service they left, and disappeared for years, to resurface with their own imprint Information.

their fantastic debut album is entitled west coast (a reference to their home town gothenburg on the, yes, west coast of sweden), think the durutti column, early chicago house tunes, manuel göttsching, the cure and bill laswell.

rasmus has kindly supplied us with this week’s session; ‘the blue room mix part 1’ is packed with beats and treats from the depths of his dusty crates – in fact so deep that the tracklisting must remain secret!

go buy the album from their brand spanking new web store HERE , and look out for forthcoming studio DJ dates in september…

also, head on over to the great alain finkielkrautrock blog and get hold of the spacey basey mix doen by our own fair steve.
