Miguel Puente for Proton (dos)

Miguel Puente‘s 2011 Adults Only podcast for Proton Radio was where our love for him began, and since then he’s graced the decks of pretty much every country imaginable, racking up releases on Akbal, Off Recordings, Lower East, and his Digital Delight imprint with friend and DJ-partner Sishi Rosch. So it’s only fitting that his 2013 version is today’s medicine for the first day back to work after Ibiza.

Sexy as ever, wrap your ears around this:


2012 is going to be the year of Digital Delight, starting on 31 January when they release their tenth EP X, a thirteen-track tonne of hot new talent featuring Death on the Balcony, Miguel Puente, Sishi Rösch and Will Crawshaw.

Their brand of ‘music for adults’ began in 2010 and was honed throughout 2011 by releases such as Rebel‘s Grass Roots EP and Lati & Jonny Cruz‘s storming Up In Smoke, complete with the magic ingredient to any nu-sleaze-bass package, a remix by Miguel Puente. Only fitting, then, that the tenth release should be a collaboration between their wider family, new and old, such as Wildkats joining with The 112.

Catch their guest-mixed podcast series here, and their Barcelona, UK and Mexico parties here, and preview the release below.

Sishi’s Summer Set

Characteristically dark and sexy from Digital Delight label boss Sishi Rösch, this mix is definitely one for the weekend. Very interesting to see that he lists the great man Steve Lawler as one of his influences, as you can most definitely hear the tribal elements they have in common.

Look out especially for the remixes of Azari & III‘s Manic and The 2 BearsBear Hug. Also featuring a preview of some of the Puente & Rösch sounds they’ve been working on, with Gangsta Club at 49 mins. Whoop!

Woody’s Roundup

Well pinch-punch-first-of-the-month, which as usual means that there are way too many good nights and not enough time. And as for you with the birthdays, there are DJs to see!

So, tonight, go old school with Marshall Jefferson at Fairchild (car park rave), or go see Waifs & Strays for free at That Mixmag Thing #15 at Queen of Hoxton. Oooh and I’ve just noticed Sishi Rösch is playing at the Horse and Groom for Coconut Ritz. Miguel Puente drew my attention to him and together they’re pretty unstoppable (more dates for both of them in London please!). To give you an example, here’s a little video from one of their Sonar appearances. I’ve been waiting for an excuse to post this as it sounds sweeeeeeet, and I’d pretty much kill to see either and both of them play anywhere at the moment.

Hessle Audio are at Fabric, with Pearson Sound and Joy Orbison, and you could keep it Fabric (we are) by attending the mammoth 5 Years of Leftroom there tomorrow night, with Matt Tolfrey and the Leftroom crew in Room 2 and Hot Natured (Lee Foss and Jamie Jones) in Room 3. We had great fun at Soul Clap’s 90s Jam with Lee Foss at the Star of Bethnal Green on Wednesday, and in between the two Lee’s off to play in Naples, at Gottwood Festival in Wales and DC10 in Ibiza. He was asking anyone on Facebook if he could borrow a pillow…
Glimpse and Miguel Campbell are playing The CAMP for Mutant Disco, Stopmakingme and The Deadstock 33s are playing the Lemonade Launch Party at The Nest, and if you’re headed towards the slightly more hardcore then Spectrum have their Summer Warehouse Party at Ewer Street Car Park with Nero, Kissy Sell Out, Chase and Status and Sinden.

I always tell myself I’m going to get out of the city in July as much as possible, and it never happens, simply because the July line ups are ridiculous for the whole month every single year. 2011 is heading that way too, with Nicolas Jaar coming live two days in a row at Fabric at the end of the month, Lovebox bringing everyone I love into Victoria Park, and The Nest continuing a fantastic booking job, with Julio Bashmore and Riton next weekend. Bloody good work London.

Bassheads – Is Anybody Out There (Greg Wilson Edit) – a walk down memory lane. Huge thanks to Greg for giving this away on soundcloud this week
Joakim – Forever Young (Discodeine Remix)
Jacques Greene – Lay It Down (Nacho Lovers Remix) the original of this is worth your pennies fo sho.
Theophilius London – Flying Overseas (Soul Clap EFunk Remix)
Toddla T – Watch Me Dance (SebastiAn Remix) Also worth your money for the whole release as all the remixes are great.
Lucky Paul – Thought We Were Alone (Gang Colours Remix)
Rainbow Arabia – Blind (Salva Remix) Rainbow Arabia have just announced a summer tour including the Shoreditch 1,2,3,4 festival next week 9th July.
