Remember DJ Trace? An artist we featured as the “Elemental Theory Artist of the Week” not too long ago who was instrumental in the pioneering of the jungle/d&b scene. He’s releasing a 3 hour late summer mix of the deep house/techno variety, mighty tasty!



Alright, let’s start off the week with our second helping from New Zealand’s head chief behind Bassweight Recordings, Olie Bassweight. Bringing tons, and i mean tons of bass as per usual Olie style, this mix contains plenty of forthcoming gems that you might want to keep track of.

LWE Podcast 99: Juan Atkins


Forming part of the very bedrock of techno, Juan Atkins’ influence on the past thirty years of electronic music is truly immeasurable. His first musical venture, Cybotron, with Rick Davis birthed such classics as “Alleys of your Mind,” “Cosmic Cars” and “Clear,” records which laid the foundations for what would become Detroit techno. On his own as Model 500, Atkins surged forward with his particular vision of electro and techno, releasing further classics in “No UFO’s,” “Night Drive” and “Starlight” among others. Together with Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson the three were responsible not just for a dazzling array of records, labels and aliases, but for creating a movement, a culture, part of music history. There is not much to say that hasn’t already been said about these pioneers of techno, so instead LWE tracked down Atkins to talk about new Model 500 material, some of his early influences and the music that he created that has come to define electronic music. He also provided us with our exclusive 99th podcast, which shows that after thirty years he’s still a vital part of the scene he helped to create.

DJ MEHDI “Loukoums”

back in 2006, Dj Mehdi’s hommage to Dilla
we did something like 200 promo CDs fro friends
I think it’s time for this music to be shared and enjoyed by all of us
I still can’t believe what’s happening, so I press play and I listen to my best friend’s music.

non-produced and un-mixed by Dj Mehdi, NSI.
Jay Dee rest in peace

Based on the DONUTS album concept, these are demos, out-takes and unreleased gems from various records I worked on before and during the making of LUCKY BOY, my next album.
Stuff comes from MEGALOPOLIS, 113 DEGRES and SHEITAN soundtrack mainly, but some is older too.
Hope you enjoy these rough mixes and un-polished sounds, as I pay hommage to “one of the greatest minds to ever make beats” :
Mr James Yancey, better known as JAY DEE, also know as DILLA.
