Tuneraker – Saturday DJ Mix

By May 2, 2009January 12th, 2020No Comments

Another great mix from Christian Lorenz at Tuneraker…

“My mixer is fried but I just had to get these tunes out there. So expect a bit of roughness amid this otherwise pretty solid selection for a Saturday afternoon. You can download the mix here for free. The mix will be available for a limited period of time.only.

The mix kicks off very chilled with an unusually little ambient tune by Zomby, the Don of wonky Dubstep beats, before launching into Laurie Anderson’s 1981 ambient classic ‘O Superman’.

You get to hear the lost 1977 German Disco killer ‘Love Machine’ followed by a Reggae cover of Led Zeppelin’s ‘Whole Lotta Love’. Keeping it fresh, you’ll hear the much talked about Aeroplanes mix of ‘Paris’ by indie band Friendly Fires and Various Production’s ultra cool remix of Adele’s ‘Chasing Pavements’.

A flashback to the old skool is Zinc’s ‘128 Trek’ which devastates the dance floor today as it did back in ’99. Japanese artist Akira Kiteshi’s ‘Pinball’ is fresh off the press and completely barking – sounds like Kiteshi San plonked a microphone into the innards of a pinball machine.

How do you top that? Well, we can and the beats get faster and housier for a while before the Latin flavoured Factory sound of Quando Quango brings you gently down to earth with ‘Love Tempo’, a proper pre-Rave Hacienda classic.

As a closer, you’ll get a mad Italian drummer, some Carl Craig magic and finally some cheeky Swedes’ doing wonders with an old Marvin Gaye tune.
