AIAIAI MIX 026
Staying true to house music, Djing for Djing’s sake, Kai Alce is always pushing himself, and us on the dancefloor. Whether it’s behind the turntables or through his label NDATL Muzik, he’s a force to be reckoned with.
"So I thought for a while what should I submit for this mix. Since AI being a headphone company in which I own a pair & did this mix with, I felt that a more sublime musical journey would be best for one listening through AIAIAI headphones alone.
Starting with none other than Larry Heard the G.O.A.T. giving the best runway to the rest of the mix. Slowly moving thru tracks from Dukesoul (RIP), live UK band Soul State Jazz into Paul Hunter aka Second Crusade let's you know the groove is there.
Jovonn shows us why he is the truth with his classic remix of St. Germain hit "Rose Rouge", Bobby Konders take on Herb Alpert's "North On South St" was NYC Late night burner from early 90's, into the future with myself & Hanna with a little unreleased tribute to lost heroes Notorious B.I.G., Mike Huckaby & J Dilla
Bringin us to the mix's first vocals "Stay This Way" featuring heartfelt words from Just One of KemeticJust, These Words by Javonntte taken from his debut EP "The Musical Stylings Of" on NDATL which propelled him into underground stardom & "Pick Yoself UP" by the elusive Marcellus Pitttman.
Wrapping up the mix with UK stalwart Mr. G's "Bands Tight" & Kenny Dope's amazing rework of classic "Rude Movements"
So sit back & enjoy my humble serving of audible medicine."
We created the series to promote and compensate musicians with new weekly mix releases on Soundcloud and Mixcloud - all curated by Benji B.
In an increasingly uncertain business of being a musician DJ or performing artist we wanted to find a way to contribute to supporting the music and nightlife scene.
The effort intends to equip artists to advance their creative and performance opportunities on a global stage, as nightclubs and music venues have largely faced ongoing closures and other restrictions internationally as the COVID-19 pandemic persists.
