Mix #068 By Charlotte Thorstvedt

For a change we’ve invited a beautiful young lady over to do a Mixtape for us. Charlotte Thorstvedt, all the way from Norway. This talented young lady released her debut album in 2012 ‘salome’ on Universal Music Norway. Of her first single “Treacle”, critics said, “ it’s a deliciously laidback soft house affair. It’s lounge, but it’s by no means background music. Instead it’s got enough interesting layers, levels and depth to basically push that sofa within the aforementioned lounge towards the dance floor, and plonk it right in the middle of a particularly up-for-it bunch of Sunday afternoon clubbers ...

A Day At The Park Podcast #001 by PONY

As an introduction to our collaboration with A Day At The Park, our friends PONY made the first Podcast! The slang term ”one trick pony” is used to refer to something that can only be used for one very specific application. Though we highly doubt it, even if such a thing were true in the case of residents PONY, it would mean that they are solely suited for making crowds go completely mad wherever they play. Having collaborated on various tracks with their world-famous partner-in-sjpez (which is Dutch slang for space) Karmon, these guys suddenly showed up on the radar of ... Read more

I think it’s more like a schizophrenic ... Read more
