We are super excited about welcoming Joaquin Jimenez-Sauma aka @jjsauma as a new member on Pacemaker. An exceptional DJ, producer, label owner, sound designer, lecturer… and the list could go on! Being a master of everything music-related, there is a lot to learn from him even by just listening to his mixtapes. Here is a warmly recommended afterhours selection that will keep your party going at least until the sun rises again.
@tbyh2o is another new member of our community and having only posted two variations of the same mixtape, we can already make assumptions about his exceptional skills. When it comes to picking tracks and mixing them to perfection, he’s a keeper. Check out his first #house mixtape, filled with marvelous grooves and some of the biggest names in the game like Julio Bashmore, Hot Since 82 and DJ Koze.
Label Worx debuts with drum & bass essentials. We’ve also got the best of electro house and dark techno!
Label Worx is a UK-based company providing a wide selection of services specifically designed for independent dance labels. They provide a solid platform that enables creative minds to efficiently manage many areas of running a record label leaving them more time to concentrate on the music. They heavily support Drum & Bass and Breakbeat music, and their debut mixtape for Pacemaker consists of an essential Liquid Drum & Bass compilation. Push play and dive into the smoother side of DnB!
In the beginning there was @raadnatrix and he had a groove. From this groove came the grooves of all grooves. While one day viciously throwing down on his box, he boldly declared: “let there be house”! And house music was born. He is the creator and this is his house, but he is not so selfish, because once you enter his house, it then becomes your house and your house music.
@darktechno_lo is a highly promising new member of our community, especially if you’re into the darker and deeper side of techno and harsher industrial sounds. This brutal debut mixtape got a strong concept and harmonic mixing while showcasing the best of underground techno. Perfect for a weekend rave!
We have selected three mixtapes that are rather different from each other but have two things in common: they are all awesome and they cannot wait to be played!
Drowned in Sound is a UK-based music website/community/label founded by Sean Adams in 2000. They are focusing on a variety of quality sounds from electronic music to pop and rock (and oh, so much more!), and they have published interviews with everyone from Björk to Paul McCartney. If someone knows what’s the hottest music out there, @seaninsound is your man. He created a special mixtape for you to dig in – highly eclectic and full of surprises. Let yourself swoon over this excellent selection!
Featuring: Banks, Janet Jackson, Four Tet, Nine Inch Nails, Nicolas Jaar
We have to admit: @the_evangelist has converted us to faithful followers by preaching excellent stories with his mixtapes. He blends tracks we would’ve never dreamt of being mixed together (Ennio Morricone and Starboy? Wow!) and he does it in the most captivating way. He also brings the most out of Pacemaker, chopping up and repeating tracks has never been more fun.
Featuring: The Weeknd, ZAYN, Kiiara, M.I.A., Major Lazer
Cheers to @billionbeatz for creating this epic sonic journey through the realms of techno and tech house! It’s delicate and candid, raw and melodic at the same time with dream transitions that teleport you straight to a dark, underground club where no one can guarantee what comes next.
