Sheee-iiiiiiiiiiiit, it’s gettin’ hot in here! Don’t know where you guys at but 35 degrees really is something! Therefore today a mixtape that perfectly suits these burning temperatures. Kiani & his Legion, a.k.a. Thomas Neyens, may not immediately ring a bell, still, if you mention his name when you’re in his hometown Genk in Belgium, everyone will tell you about the mindblowing parties that often go on untill noon! The “legion” in his name basically refers to the art of spinning vinyls together with friends, it’s all about the music and having a good time! Being influenced by the ’97 – ’04 Berlin scene  and also the late ’80′s, begin 90′s Detroit techno, this really is the stuff that keeps you going in your head, holding on to a groove that simply never ends. The afterparty vibe for all those after hours souls or as he says himself:

Them darkened souls need sunrise disko!

He used 2 turntables and two cd players, all very oldskool and underground, to record the mix. With 90% vinyl, expect the real deal and no nonsense touch! The mix lasts for almost 3 hours and features tracks by John Beltran, Soul Capsule, Isolée, Common Factor and DJ Qu. For specific track ID’s, leave a comment ;) .
So sit back, relax, have a drink, put on those sunglasses and enjoy, this is simply awesome my friends!
