122 to 140 BPM random all vinyl mix

122-to-140-mix

After a few years going all digital, I’ve sold my CDJs and switched back to vinyl one year ago. I’m now a happy DJ again, and in 2015 I’ve bought a shitload of records, mostly Drum & Bass but also Bass/Techno/House etc…

This mix is basically me randomly picking up some records I’ve acquired throughout the year, and mixing them up on the fly, à l’ancienne. No preparation means no perfection, but I think it’s not too bad.

dale-cooper-vinyl-extravaganza-20-years-in-the-mix 

Hey yo! En 2015 ça fait déjà 20 ans que je mixe et que je collectionne les disques comme un gogol.
J’avais envie de fêter ça en me faisant une soirée complète à la Péniche Cancale, de l’apéro sur la terrasse au dancefloor, et pendant laquelle je jouerai exclusivement du vinyl, dans tous les styles. C’est le vendredi 19 juin.
Hip-Hop to Downtempo to Jazz to World to House to Techno to Bass Music to Drum & Bass and more!
VIENS!

Listen : Ed Rush & Optical feat. MC Ryme Tyme @ Black Label, Paris – 16.09.2006

Ed Rush & Optical feat. MC Ryme Tyme @ Black Label, Paris – 16.09.2006 by Dale Cooper on Mixcloud

I just found this while digging in my archives and I thought that I could share it again…

I originally streamed this set live from the Concorde Atlantique boat in Paris, on my Drum & Bass website La Vibe. The stream unfortunately failed after about 1 hour because of the very low bandwith of the venue, but I could successfully record it.

This was the 50th Black Label party and also the very last one on the boat, and it was a tough one, packed and hot. Ed Rush & Optical + Ryme Tyme were the headliners of the main stage, but there was also Mickey Finn and MC Navigator on the first floor.

Here is the e-flyer of the event, will probably bring memories back to all my lurkers from La Vibe… http://www.blacklabel-records.com/fly.html

La Vibe #16.25 – Future Cut special!

Another special one, this time it’s all about Manchester’s Future Cut! I’m not going to go special only, but this one was suggested to me by Kantyze, and as I was totally uninspired for yesterday’s show, I thought I’d do it. Whiplash, Obsession or Midnight are obviously timeless classics, but I almost forgot about some big tunes such as Recoil and Ghetto Style.

Future Cut’s discography is not huge, but it’s very varied, from the dark-tech-dubby Renegade Hardware typical sound of Whiplash to the Dillinja-esque Dainjah, to the Manchester influenced groove of Uprock and Plastic, to the acoustic funk of Midnight, it’s all about eclectism.

The pair has not released any Drum & Bass for a while now, but they are still active as producers for big British pop acts such as Lily Allen (!).
They have a brand new single though, just released on V Recordings, it’s Prophecy b/w Out There, 2 tunes from 2005, available on a tiny number of test pressings, but that never made it to the market because of sample clearance issues. It’s now available as a digital release, so that was another good reason to make this Future Cut special ;)
