Disco Dappers

disco dappers

I was feeling the NuDisco and Indie Dance department of Beatport and always being a bit of a funkmeister I thought I’d spin some disco grooves.

Wide-Eyed Wild

Wide-Eyed Wild

I’ve gone back to my (progressive) house roots for this mix… Dug deep by analysing what Sasha & Digweed have been laying recently and adding my own bit of spice to the track selection. From the early mix tapes, through to Renaissance and Northern Exposure, Sasha & Digweed have been luminary artists in the dance music scene and I always draw inspiration from the way they maintain themselves at the cutting edge of the evolution of Electronica… In this mix, you’ll hear deep bassy sounds with plenty of melody and the odd vocal… Lose yourselves in the Wide-Eyed Wild with Wez G! :::TRACKLISTING::: 1.

Dolphin Deep (Chillout)

dolphindeep

Time for another mix in the Wez G chillout series. It’s a beaming hot summer and it’s always nice to get some fresh, sunny tunes to while away the time… This mix goes a little more four-four than usual and might be a post-sunset Cafe Del Mar session… It’s (dolphin) deep and funky and quite acoustic… I enjoyed it, especially going more full-flow towards the end… :::TRACKLISTING::: 1.

Head Alchemy

Head Alchemy

I felt like a bit of a change, a bit of an up-tempo feel to the mix to warm those toes in the murky winter weather… I’d recently put together a nice acid house feeling dub for a Brazilian vocalist to work on and wanted to fit it into the mix… It is Hacienda style Acid House… This mix flows from Acid House to techno and back down to Acid… I wanted to bang it up to full-on Adam Beyer style techno and add in some Goa Trance but unfortunately couldn’t get the tempo geared up that high in 80 minutes… Some nice Laurent Garnier tracks thrown in and he has been a big influence on me as a DJ – I’ve never seen anyone at all demonstrate crowd control on a dancefloor like he does… He’s like an operatic conductor and his versatility and range of music in his sets is astonishing… I started off in the scene listening to a lot of techno and playing it so I guess this mix is taking me back full circle… :::TRACKLISTING::: 1. Wez G – Brasil Acid (Dub) [White] 2. Joey Beltram – Energy Flash (Original Mix) [Transmat] 3. Irregular Synth, Andrea Frisina – Dub City (Lutzenkirchen Remix) [Gate Null Recordings] 4.

Remote Desert Runway

Remote Desert Runway

Lost in the sky, traversing the globe, a record box in the baggage hold high above you; an air steward whinges about the weight of your records and forces you to shift your hand luggage to a safer place. While you’re getting a ticking off from some jumped up trolley dolly the moved weight of a damn heavy UDG bag tilts the plane and the pilot comes running down the aisle and gives the jumped up service shark a good telling off, as by shifting the DJ’s luggage, he has tilted the plane off course…. All we can hope for now is an emergency landing patch to develop…. deep in the desert the pilot spots a Remote Desert Runway and all are safe and sound as the plane touches down back onto Mother Earth.

Holiday Romance

We’ve all been there, cosied up with a nice partner on a holiday of a lifetime, be it a beach, a nice foreign city, or just camping in the forest, a holiday romance is always memorable. I was having a dig on Beatport for some of the finest of this summer’s chillout beats for this mix and as I spun the tunes, I felt they had a soft romantic love theme predominant… I managed to include one of the productions from my new Megman Vs Wez G project which I hope you enjoy. There’s some nice numbers here and the mix builds from around 90bpm up to some housier 120bpm at the finale. Hopefully the set will give you fond memories of your Holiday Romance. :::TRACKLISTING::: 1. Mojo Rising – On The Horizon (Original Mix) [Cold Busted] 2.

Punky Funky

Electronic dance music enthusiasts are the modern day punks. Electronic music represents youth culture and the stuff top DJs hammer out in wild night clubs to glammed up audiences is about as punky as it’s gotten since the seventies. This funked up mix covers vocals through to driving funky basslines and I hope it keeps you as punky funky as the monkey. 1. Pool – Flex (Aeroplane Remix) [2DIY4] 2. Buckley – Back To The Tower Feat.

Phoenix Rising

The phoenix is a mythical sacred fire bird. It is described as a bird with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends). It has also been described as looking like a giant, firey peacock. It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. In some stories, the new phoenix embalms the ashes of its old self in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis (literally “sun-city” in Greek). I feel, with this the biggest break in the podcast, like a phoenix rising from the flames… I’ve been away locked in mental hospitals for the past few months and it hasn’t been fun…. just been keen to get back and get on top of my music…. This mix is a bit rusty but a nice start back with lots of fresh vocals and some flaming hot tunes. 1. My Favorite Robot – The Liability Within (Original Mix) [Last Night On Earth] 2.

Sizzling Summer

Well – Summer is finally here… We had a steaming hot end of May and into June, jubilee weekend was pretty horrible but let’s hope that this year proves hot… Lots of barbecues and beach trips. I’ll be off to the best surfing beach, here in Wales, Llangenith Sands, on the Gower Peninsula, as often as possible… Of course, in the hot weather we need some decent chilling vibes and Sizzling Summer lays down some nice laidback grooves to accompany whatever you choose to do in the heat.

Sexy Disco Machines

There’s been a bit of a delay in getting this latest mix together as I’ve been busy enhancing the Wez G studio, spending over £4000 on it in the past month… I’ve been learning how to use all the new gadgets and this has sidetracked me from doing DJ mixes… Anyway, back with a bang and this funky mix spans from nice modern disco funk beats through to heavy hitting techno, not forgetting the awesome Justine – Be Sexy from 1992 which I burned from vinyl… I’m hoping my new kit will produce some future bangers for your aural pleasure and I’ll be hard at work, creating… Meanwhile, sink your teeth into ‘Sexy Disco Machines’. 1.

Forefathers Of Funk

Well – It’s been a busy week… My new Native Instruments Maschine turned up and I’ve been busy learning that – the aim is to develop my digital DJing to incorporate Maschine eventually and it should certainly revolutionise the Wez G production methods also… Apart from that I’ve been busy researching on ancestry dot com and managed to trace my lineage back to James I of Scotland… It’s an amazing and addictive fun site – well worth a go… Back on Beatport and all the decent tracks were hiding away in the Indie Dance / Nudisco section. My style seems to migrate departments there all the time. We have a variety of funky disco numbers, a shift away from the progginess of the last Alien Abduction mix. I now proudly present to you: Forefathers Of Funk – Enjoy! 1. Leo Perez – Colors (Original Mix) [Half Seas Over] 2. Honom – Sebastians Birthday (Original Mix) [Toolroom Records] 3.

Alien Abduction

A few years ago I underwent an Ayahuasca session and was induced into the world of shamanism. It was great except for the plant taking complete control of your body and mind proved a bit daunting around six months later when I had a flashback from my experience and trekked up into the local woods where I had an alien abduction experience. I was surrounding by probing Chinese Red Army soldiers inspecting my body and faced an attack of flying red dragons. I eventually returned intact from the forest, leaving a trail of floating light beings in my wake. As far as alien abudctions go I think that sometimes in today’s music technology world, surrounded by weird bits of kit and flashing lights, the modern DJ is essentially flying a spaceship through the boundaries of the dimensions. I hope that this little mix will trancendentally induce you into the weird and wacky world of Wez G and that you yourselves might experience an enlightening moment or two upon your travels.

What I Am

Music is a great tool for expression. The music artist takes you on a journey,a rollercoaster ride of feelings and emotion. Descartes said ‘Cogito Ergo Sum’ – ‘I think, therefore I am’. The musician thinks and then performs and his work, that all can hear, his art, becomes one with the audience. a Transferrance of energy occurs and the form of the art manifests itself in the feelings of those that listen. :::TRACKLISTING::: 1.

Circles

Back in my (younger) clubbing days I can remember watching a drug awareness video. They put a load of rats in a box, gave some of them speed which caused them to run around crazily hyperactive. The ones they gave ecstasy also sped up, but ran around the box edges in nice neat continuous circles. The E’d up Rats were following one of the most basic of symmetrical desires. This mix has a nice circular flow to the beats. I’m not equating my audience with rodents, far from it. Enjoy the full force of dance music as its supposed to feel, just remember not to touch any cheese or you might get electroshocked! :::TRACKLISTING::: 1.

Frosty Blue

Frosty blue is a chillout mix, the 50th set in the Wez G DJ Mix series. We’ve had a mild winter though the frost is starting to bite right now. In Caldicot, where Wez G is based, only the River severn separates him from the hippest of chill towns, Bristol. It is the frosty blue of the river that keeps the muffled sounds of Massive ATtack from rising out constantly and you can even see Portishead from across the water. Both of these seminal trip hop bands are included on the mix as indeed are some other bighitters, interspersed with the latest upfront chill from Beatport. The chillout mixes have proved the most popular of all Wez G’s mixes. To celebrate 50 mixes in the series look out for the special torrents of the whole series (so far) that will be floating about. 1. Erman Erim – Hypnagogia (Original Mix) [Beatwax Records] 2. Morcheeba – The Sea [Indochina] 3. Deep Fog – Infinity Life (Original Mix) [Mistiquemusic] 4. Deeper Connection – No More (Original Mix) [Sonata Recordings] 5. Flunk – On My Balcony [Kriztal] 6.

Ghost In The Bed

Mixing this haunted house made me think of a ghost under the covers with me. Twisted tech with minimal vocals, the mix builds to a crescendo with an old reworked classic, Jaydee – Plastic Dreams, which was one of my Shuffle DJ partner (Damo)’s signature tunes back in the day when we rocked the best of the country’s dancefloors from the tip to the toe of the Uk. :::TRACKLISTING::: 1.

Jack Attack

Jacking your body has always been a part of house music and this mix has a few ‘Jack’ references. My own interpretation of the required picture and actual mix name comes from one of my greatest Christmas presents back in the day. Jack Attack was the essential game for the Commodore 64 and as little red Jack you could hop about platforms and squash baddies. What it has to do with house-jacking God only knows… The mix flows about with some nice upfront deep techy tunes, cut up rather rustily due to my break from the decks in recent months, but culminating nicely in some lush hammered-out Inner City Vocals. Enjoy! And have a Merry Christmas! 1. Maceo Plex – Bring It Back (Original Mix) [Crosstown Rebels] 2. Balcazar & Sordo – Black Panties [Dirt Crew Recordings] 3. Joe Goddard – Gabriel feat. Valentina (Original Mix) [Greco-Roman] 4. Jet Project, Electric J – Alright (Homework Remix) [Snatch! Records] 5. Phil Kieran, Green Velvet – Michael Jackson (Jamie Jones Edit) [Phil Kieran Recordings] 6. Uner – Nuribo (Audiojack Remix) [Gruuv] 7. Tim Deluxe – Transformation (Original Mix) [Get Human] 8. Maetrik – Revenge Of Jack (Original Mix) [Truesoul] 9. Terence Fixmer – Le Terrible (Original Mix) [Electric Deluxe] 10. Maetrik – The Entity (Original Mix) [Truesoul] 11. Gerd – Palm Leaves (Deetron Remix) [Clone Royal Oak] 12. Subb-an – This Place (Original Mix) [Saved Records] 13. Kevin Saunderson – Future feat. Inner City (Deep See Sound System Mix) [Defected] 14.

Little Disco Biscuit

The best time for dance music in my opinion was the early 1990s. It was the heyday of the Rave Scene and dancefloors were packed with sky high dancing bods. The reason I like this period is not that the floors were filled with ecstasy takers, but that the music was at its peak. Dubby loops of bass and funk with a constant circular rhythm in the tents and clubs drove the E’d up crowd into a frenzy. The beats suited the experience of everyone – It was total unity and I think that over the years as the government has killed off the scene with various parliamentary acts (eg Criminal Justice Act 1994) and the total media frenzied attack on ecstasy, claiming it killed you, and the general shift towards commercialism and business, moved the music towards a different direction. Of course, post 1997 – even the dealers were selling ketamine and calling it ecstasy…It’s as if the disco biscuits disappeared overnight. I think on the music front the DJs forgot the buzz which caused the whole vibe and we saw a scattering of genres and pigeonholing and musical snobbery… Well – a couple of decades on from that and digging about on Beatport, I noticed a trend back towards the old style music. Loops of bass hooks and that driving groove have reappeared. It’s that old Italian sound which is so inspiring. Now most of it seems to be categorised as techno or deep house… but it seems the same old stuff that DJs from Laurent Garnier to Easygroove, from Carl Cox to Sasha, all used to bang out. In this mix I’ve cut up a few old tracks with the new flavours plus slipped in a special edit from a live Universe Rave that took place only a few miles away from me in Magor in South Wales in the summer of 1992… In the news recently there have been claims that Ecstasy cures cancer 100% guaranteed so maybe the pop idol generation will be ditching X-Factor, slipping on their shiny shirts and getting back to a diet of disco biscuits… Who knows? As long as good music thrives and Simon Cowell goes bankrupt I don’t mind one little bit. :::TRACKLISTING::: 1. Vangelis – Blush Response [East West] 2. Joe T Vannelli – Prelude (Scalambrin & Sicily Island Style Remix) [Le Bien Et Le Mal Recordings] 3….
