BONJOUR-HI!, the innovative Burlington/Montreal DJ collective noted for their energetic, collaborative live shows, is set to release their debut, “Banana EP.” This is their first official release and represents the culmination of their influences from holding dance parties across four continents and playing alongside notable acts such as Chromeo, Ninjasonik, Roska, and many others. Their Banana EP is a collection of all original tracks with a tropical bass influence set to make you get up and dance.

As an early Christmas present, we would like to present to you guys two brand new exclusive mixtapes made by two friends of Phase02!
The first one was made by Berlin based Daniel Gorton a.k.a. Hog, who already passed here in november with his first EP called “Not quite an albatross” (check it again here). It’s a superb mix, partly because of the excellent track choice but also because of the way it was mixed together! This is how he describes the mix himself: “It’s quite eclectic and journeys through various styles of techno and house with a touch of electronica.” Hit the “read more” button below to see the playlist…
Then we got Thomas Neyens a.k.a. Kiani & his Legion. He was also featured here a while ago (right here) and now he delivers yet again a steamy 4 hour set which brings us a flood of deep house and techno! Here’s how he describes the result: “The mix includes old and new tracks, I didn’t really prepare it beforehand or edit it afterwards, I mixed it on low volume, so cut me some slack, don’t expect an ultrapolished ableton ‘whoop whoop’ sonic orgasm. It’s just simple house, reminiscent of the true culture of the night, when the DJ was still human…” From driving tech-housers and exotic grooves, to jackin’ stuff, but still with that deliciously deep, clubby vibe. If you would like to know a track ID, do leave a comment.
I highly recommend you both of these tapes, you simply gotta love them! Oh yes and before I forget, Merry Christmas to you all! Read more

News from Edinburgh! Wira, Hostage’s new alter ego, has released 2 new tracks. They’re being released by the brand new Phuturelabs label from Glasgow. The track you’ll find below has some recognizable and popular “Afrojackish”, “pon de floor” characteristics but it still is special enough to deserve a place right here IMO. It has a darker and more underground feel than the usual “happy” Hostage stuff.

Right, something more funky now. Dejan Dex aka Dejan Talevski is these days considered to be one of the most talented producers in Macedonia! His sounds go from deep house to tech house and techno. Now Artefact records has released the “Fuel Up The Beat EP” which contains two very funky tracks! The track below will certainly make your head move, hell, it will be hard to not shake your asses on the dancefloor when this one kicks in! Buy it HERE!

You remember Pelski? The kick-ass music bloggers who announced phase02 the best blog of 2009? Of course you do! Together with Big Chill House they’re having their a Pelski clubnight in London with Rustie (Wireblock, Warp), Roska (Kicks & Snares), The Boog-A-Loo Crew (Trouble Vision) and Charles Darkley (You Can Call Me Pelski). Just looking at the line up I can say you don’t wanna miss this. It’s on February the 19th, totally free before midnight at Big Chill House, London. If Antwerp was right next to London I’d be there. More info on Facebook.
To make it even better, this invitation comes with two amazing mixes by The Boog-A-Loo Crew and Charles Darkley. And if that’s not enough, you can grab two bonus tracks at the bottom. I’m talking about Roska’s original Hey Cutie and the Boog-A-Loo Crew remix of DRT’s Rising Sun.
