Soular Power mix
Soular Power is the crate digging DJ duo Mwanz Dover (Blixaboy, Black Dotz) and Gabe (Smoke, Lollipop Shop). The guys were nice enough to send over this eclectically groovy mix ready made for pool side relaxing. You can catch Soular Power tomorrow night at the Cavern. Here is what Mwanz had to say about the mix...
A pretty decent mix and a good representation of what happens when Gabe and I get together to DJ. A real diggers delight. pay special attention to the NF Porter,Joy Division and Grace Jones tunes. Gabe makes a little connection for the listening music geeks. One of my best(and oldest) friends Doctor Troy just started a Cold wave/Kraut/Synth reissue label called Medical Records. The Alexander Robotnick track is of on his two reissues he released last week. He is the guy I stay with when I go to Seattle. He is a Doctor by Day, but the biggest record slut I have ever know by night(much worse than me). He specializes in obscure new wave, Italo, and weirdo synth music and has been following for a very long time. He was turning me on to Italo back in the early 90's. I am bringing him down in October for a DJ night.
I hope you all enjoy the mix. We tried go somewhat chronological. Staring in '66 with Jaques Dutronc and ending a Lee Perry and Kode 9 collab from the recently revived ON-U sound. The legendary Dub label from Adrian Sherwood that pretty much defined late 70's/early 80's Dub.
