A Running Melody 010 - Jon Sable

We're super excited to have Jon Sable as the next (and 10th!) guest for the series.  He's a killer producer and DJ who we've been following for a while now.  He's based in London now but with his roots in New Zealand.  He co-runs the label In Dust We Trust and has put out a couple of killer releases via our friends TIEF, shout to Bagsy! 

Colourless, released back in late 2015, is still on regular rotation for us.  He also just put out Dolphin Hotel, TIEF's 11th release, with a couple of really smooth, vibey house tracks and a nice remix from his label mates, Chaos in the CBD.  

We were excited to hear what he threw together for the series and it doesn't disappoint.  Quick intro below and onto the mix!

"This mix was recorded at my good pal Matt Hesselworth's (of Tief Music) flat on a rainy night in London. It is a mix of recent purchases and a bunch of unreleased material - both from myself and forthcoming material on "In Dust We Trust". I wanted to showcase the music that I draw a lot of my inspiration from - classic, timeless tracks that are old and new. I hope you enjoy!"




A Running Melody 009 - Evan Michael

Up next, an old mate from the neighborhood here in Brooklyn, Mr. Evan Michael.  Evan's been a close friend for years and has been heavily involved in the music scene here in NYC, from Cameo Gallery (RIP) & Brooklyn Bass, to more recently his releases on the likes of Cascine and the newly launched Kaviar Disco Club imprint (check it out here!).  His productions are inspired by everything from disco, to techno, to house and boogie, so we asked him to throw together a mix for the series to see what he came up with.  

Some words (and a mix) from the man himself...

A big part of my production work flow centers around searching high and low for breaks, especially ones residing in Funk and Boogie LPs of the late 70s and early 80s. For this mixtape, I wanted to showcase a variety of what I'm usually listening to in second hand record stores, on youtube, and in the studio. Some of these songs I discovered a long time ago, others more recently. I'm also inspired by producers who've edited these elements and come out with something a bit more Techno in the process. There's a lot of organic bits in these sampling gems, like airy claps and reverb'd vocals and I enjoy all of it. I hope you do too.
