Today’s post is kind of a re-post of sorts as we wanted to share our Candy Talk Records Producer Spotlight with you. In case you may have missed Colette’s post, she did a little Q & A with each remix artist (re: Dreams Remixes) and put them up on Facebook. This was a great way for people to get to know the producers behind each remix, but also a great way to give our audience here a little more info than what our About page currently holds. Ha!

Happy February folks! Hope all is well. Today’s post is to let you all know that we have a fresh Top 10 chart up on Traxsource.com. We’ve highlighted our recent remix for Candy Talk Records along with some other goodies that we’re feeling at the moment. Don Sizzle’s Love Lift EP – just released on our label, Elevated Tracks – takes second spot followed by tunes from our homies Dan Ryan and Ludo Mir. You will also see music from Demarkus Lewis, Maggs Bruchez, Positive Divide, 4Peace and more. Hit the link below to have a look/listen. Cheers and thanks for checking it out.
We are honored to be a part of this project and we were anxious to hear what the others had cooked up. Colette: Dreams Remixes is out now and all four remixes turned out really nice. It’s definitely worth scoopin’ the full release! If you haven’t checked it out please take a listen on SoundCloud or head on over to Traxsource to grab your copy today.
Hey hey hey! Happy New Year, folks! Hope you all are well. Quick shout today to let you know that you can now preview our Vocal Remix of Colette’s “Dreams” on SoundCloud. She did an awesome cover of Fleetwood Mac’s tune, Dreams, and has enlisted Demarkus Lewis, Positive Divide, Ezra and us for remix duties. If we have our heads wrapped around this right there will be a first release of vocal mixes which will then be followed by a second release of dub versions. Hit the links below to check out the mixes!
As we continue to add our full back catalog, along with audio previews to follow, you can hear most of our releases and remixes on our SoundCloud page. We have current releases featured as well as our latest mixes and free downloads. You can still listen if you are not a member, but if you have an account set up we’d love to link up with you!
If you’re looking to get your Monday boogie on head on over to The Crocodile tonight for Open House Chicago. South of Roosevelt’s JP will be joined by Open House resident, Blake Walker, as well as Dirty “It’s A Lifestyle” Lary.
Tonight is the night. Doin’ a little bday celebration for Kris at the Open House Chicago weekly here in the city. Come one, come all. No cover and free pizza. 1540 N Milwaukee Ave in the Wicker Park neighborhood. We party till 2. See ya if we see ya!
We found this mix on a SD card recently. It’s a warm up set from right before when we played the Dark + Deep party here in Chicago. Heavy basslines and a little on the deeper and darker side of things –– this mix should be played on a proper rig.
We’ve been trying to get better at keeping our current picks posted monthly to Traxsource and we just got October’s up. Hit the link below to check it out. Includes tunes from Gonzo-Gonzo, Milty Evans, Scrubfish, Derrick Carter, 4Peace, Mark Farina, Maggs Bruchez and more. Lots of house and jackin house tunes this run! Peace.
