Bonnie Beats: Sequin Steps (Exclusive Nightdrive Mix)

Hello darling Nightdrivers, allow me to introduce myself: The name’s Bonnie Consuela Maria Garcia Beats, but you can call me Profesora. I’m kidding, c’mon man. No, but really, many of you might know me as the slightly boisterous and big-haired Bonnie Beats of Wynwood Radio’s Sample City or might have heard my name (and sound) buzzing through the streets of Miami. In any case, I have had the honor of being invited to join the talented roster of DJ artists of Nightdrive’s Collective an-.. yes, yes I know, hold the applause, I’ll take your questions later, and I wanted express my gratitude by putting a mix together in honor of Nightdrive’s discoheads and distinct fans. … MORE

Team Rojas Moves On

Our team of Rojases (Erick and Edgar) are at it again.  Residing in New York (for now), they’ve released their next mix installment in association with Cosmic Chronic, this time straying from their boogie and disco roots for a deeper house ensemble.  These guys really do have amazing ears; always digging for the best beats with a healthy dose of soul. I always find myself returning to their mixes months and years after their release.

SSUR

So here’s a new label out of Stockholm that I thought I’d share. SSUR or Sweet Surprise claim to be releasing music in the immediate future that they “think is good, without inhibitions or restrictions”. There first release will be with fellow Swede’s John Cederberg and Victor Holmberg, known collectively as Montauk. Previously they released their single ”Holiday” on the Brilliantine label which got a lot of attention this summer and was featured on Aeroplane’s “Chart Mix” May 2010. Sweet Surprise is set to release anything from Re-Edits, Nu Disco to Balearic House. What “Sweden” has shown us in recent years is that they have a good ear and taste in pretty much anything they touch, so I suspect lots of good things to come from this label, they seem to always kill it.

Here’s a Mixtape the SSUR crew sent over (It’s Awesome!!!) – Enjoy
