Franck Roger

By Meoko Mix

This mix was recorded live in the south of France in Sanary-sur-mer for those who might know at Bard’O club, the spot is very intimate, it was the 4th time I was playing there and i really like to be free in that kind of small place to be able to play what i feel like at the right moment, and not have to worry about the crowd and whether they are dancing or not. This is what happens when you have a good crowd, being able to go from past to future, from classic to avant-garde gems.. for me this is how I like to play these days, moving across styles like this and not to be bored by a DJ who plays the same kind of music for hours… Hope you will enjoy this live mix.

We are honoured to welcome a true legend of the Chicago House scene: Robert Owens.

With a prolific output spanning from the 80s until now, Owens’ solo productions are undoubtedly a fixture in many record bags across the globe.

Kevin Saunderson

By Meoko Mix

Today we are more than proud to feature a myth in our podcast series, someone who is often named among the creators themselves of the techno music genre: Mr. Kevin Saunderson. The recording sets the mood with the timeless Kenny Larkin Tension Mix of Kevin’s own ‘Future’ featuring Inner City. Kevin then shows his skills as an artist who has the incredible ability to create a mood in its mixes with just 2 or 3 purposely chosen tracks at the right tempo – throughout the mix each track is extremely strong, with no frills. Whether it’s house or techno elements in the mix the result is astonishing; Kevin Saunderson brings a classic a Detroit touch to each single moment. The mix sucks up the listener until the end leaving one to scream for more techno – we could not have expected anything less from a legend such as Kevin Saunderson.

Kevin Saunderson returns to London this weekend; on Saturday 19th of January he will perform at Corsica Studios. And while platinum-selling Detroit artist will be back headlining room 1 of this special event, room 2 will also see something more unique than rare happening; Memory Box welcomes Renaat Vandepapeliere – the Boss of the one and only R&S Records who is known for taking risks in his sets beyond trends. Robin Ball and Brassica playing live finish up the line-up into what already feels like a memorable event – definitely one not to miss out if you are around London this weekend.

ANBC

By Meoko Mix

ANBC is a new collaborative project joining the forces of Bruno Curtis and Alex Neivel, both based in Prague. Meoko is proud to publish their first podcast, a dreamy micro-house progression which does not hold back on experimenting and drives the listener deeper with inventive melodic and harmonic integrations into steady neat beats.

ANBC was born as Alex pushed Bruno into diving deeper in the studio. After a lot of after party jams and light night studios sessions they figured out that the compatibility was just there and it made sense to start a collaboration on a brand new project. Since that day they have been producing a lot of music together – in this Meoko exclusive mix you can hear a lot of their own unreleased productions, and we can only be excited considering the quality of the mix and the fact that they might be published sometime soon.

Regarding their music influences in therms of style, Bruno comments “we’re very classically orientated, jazz infusion as well, experimental… So we try to bring those components into micro-house and just try to approach it in a way that what doesn’t make sense then starts to make sense”.

Loopdeville

By Meoko Mix

No history of Bulgarian electronic music would be complete without a mention of Deyan Zlatinov. You might not have heard of him but there’s a good chance you’ve danced to his music – particularly when you consider that Loopdeville has been engaged with electronic music since the 90s. A passionate collector with an extraordinary drive to take the crowd on a musical trip.

Coming on to the mix he made for us, you will find tracks that he loves listening and playing at the moment – probably only one or two of them have been released. Mid way the mix builds up with tracks from forthcoming releases on both Delooped and Erorr; productions from newly signed Bulgarian artists. Basically these tracks will be available at some point this year through his imprints.
