Three Groovin’ House Mixtapes

Groovylicious house with a touch of hip-hop from three legendary Pacemaker users.

 

 

It’s always tough when daily life happens and @stanfitz is away from the Pacemaker decks. He celebrated his return with a smashing deep house mixtape – a selection and style that only he can carry out so masterfully and consistently. Great to have you back!

 

 

@illtino is another legend who needs no introduction. He’s one of the pillars of the community and this mixtape should be your main inspiration when it comes to discovering the perks of Pacemaker+. Mashing up hip-hop over house beats, the result is marvellous!

 

 

@samuelnatal79 posted 45 mixtapes so far – he’s not only dedicated when it comes to creating but also when it comes to listening to others’ mixes and giving feedback. His latest selection contains the finest of house music, opening and closing with Carl Cox and building up groovy, playful rhythms inbetween. Give it a spin!

 

Stay inspired, keep your mixtapes coming – next week it could be your turn!

Kitsuné Guest Mixtape by Molikasi

French feels with Kitsuné 🌶, dope hip-hop 🔥 and soothing spring beats. 🌸

 

 

Expect some smooth vibes in the latest Kitsuné Hot Stream mix by the French musician and producer Molikasi. Influenced by African and Asian sounds, he works, samples and magnifies his own voice and instrument, to give an impression of coming from faraway places and break the rules of electro pop. We had a little chat with the French artist, you can read it here while you are listening to his excellent mixtape!

 

 

Props to our man @willsn, he’s no half steppin! This hip-hop mixtape is so dope, it really takes an attentive ear to notice where one track ends and another one starts. This selection is a sure shot if you’re into heavy names like Drake, The Weeknd, Travis Scott, Future and co. You know the ledge!

 

 

With his latest mixtape, @benjami is doing a thorough exploration in sound with Pacemaker+. Starting off with relaxing bird chirping, getting to some modern classical jams, slowly heading into more psychedelic areas, future jazz making love with instrumental hip-hop and trip-hop. No matter the season, this selection is a blessing with all its creative twists and turns.

 

Stay inspired, keep your mixtapes coming – next week it could be your turn!

Mix Everything: Three Next Level Mashups

Your mixtapes just got so much better! Listen and be blown away.

 

 

@hairunhudson went totally berzerk with his latest mixtape, it’s probably one of the most – if not THE most – eclectic mix ever posted in the community. It does not matter what type of music you prefer, we guarantee you will find at least one of your favourites in here. Mashup madness!

Featuring: Beck, M.I.A., Placebo, HEALTH, Autechre, Clams Casino, Com Truise

 

 

@hertz’s debut mix flawlessly sums up what Pacemaker is all about: #MixEverything. In this super short but extra sweet mashup Enya meets Flying Lotus and together they bump into Marvin Gaye and The Notorious B.I.G. One B.I.G. happy family!

Featuring: Patrick Watson, Enya, Flying Lotus, Marvin Gaye, The Notorious B.I.G.

 

 

Meet @joebrokken, Pacemaker’s very own Zen Master. In his Meditation series he invites you to step outside yourself and let your soul breathe through the pores of the finest ambient and psychedelic vibes. A stream of (un)consciousness, It’s worth the trip!

Watch The Hype: African Beats & House 🇿🇦

Watch The Hype is back with ‘Our Black Roots’, a mix dedicated to recognising the importance of black music in shaping electronic music. We have picked two more gems from the community that perfectly fit in the concept. Expect some exotic rhythms and organic beats!

 

 

Watch The Hype is back with their second mixtape on Pacemaker. ‘Our Black Roots’ is dedicated to recognising the importance of black music in shaping electronic music. The tracks in this mix were all curated by artists who contributed to their online Our Black Roots feature. So, while you listen, you can read each artist’s personal story behind each track. Mr. G, Matthew Herbert, Hieroglyphic Being and more take part!

 

 

Same concept, different style – @jlmickles selected almost 2 hours of dusty beats, booming kick drums, percussions and dub-disco inspired by various African countries and instruments. You can even hear a track from Lee “Scratch” Perry, the inventor of remixing who recently celebrated his 81th birthday. 

 

 

Playing around with rhythm and beats is a highly rewarding experience, although blending the worlds of electronic and organic grooves can be a challenge. @provocateur accepted the challenge, his afrohouse mix is drawing inspiration from Angola, Mali, Nigeria and all the hidden tribes who shaped and keep shaping electronic music.

Kitsuné + Young Franco = Feels 🌊

Kitsuné returns with a fabulous mixtape by Young Franco and we have two more house bombs to share!

 

Kitsuné returns with a fabulous mixtape created by the ever so amazing Young Franco. The Australian genius started DJing when he was 16 and got into producing just a few years ago. He’s inspired by hip-hop, soul and funk and keeps sweeping the world off its feet (quite literally!) with his unique funky beats. No dancefloor remains intact when he’s dictating the rhythm – join the groove with his excellent selection, just push play! We also had a cool chat with him, get to know him better here!

 

 

Even though nowadays @djculture101 drops a mixtape once a month, deep house specialists know that it’s always worth the wait. His last selection of deep classics is perfect both for relaxing this evening or warming up before a proper party this weekend.

 

 

@haunteverest’s motto is ‘nap all day, sleep all night, party never’. Hard to believe it after listening to this absolutely crazy selection of deep, lo-fi and outsider house tracks. It makes us wanna party all day, all night and sleep never. Care to join us?

 

Stay inspired, keep your mixtapes coming – next week it could be your turn!

Deep House & Chill = ❤️

 

Three fabulous mixtapes for the perfect love triangle: deep, house and chill!

 

 

To quote @proudspark’s description of his own mixtape: “WOW. Just #wow.” This is a spot on summary of just how nifty this mixed bag of goodies turned out. He mixed his own Discover Weekly recommendations from Spotify and let himself be surprised by the results. Push play and let yourself marvel at how easy it can be to have a top notch selection for your mixtape! 😍

Featuring: Borrowed Identity, John Talabot, Yuksek

 

 

“May cause an unsafe rise in blood pressure” – warns us @capturingphi.

Mixtapes of the Week #20:
Ambient Moments, Electronic Madness

 

We have it all covered for you: one mixtape for soothing your spirits, one for lifting them up and one for treating your booty!

 

Serein is an independent record label based in Wales, the UK. It was founded by Huw Roberts in 2005, focusing predominantly on crossover ambient styles and delicate sounds. Fun fact: the name Serein was taken from a meteorological dictionary, it is used to describe ‘fine rain falling from a clear sky after sunset’. This is exactly how the music sounds too, this mixtape will soothe you immensely.

To find out more about Serein, check out our interview with Huw about running a label, the perks of Spotify and exciting new releases!

 

How much awesomeness can you fit in 47 minutes? Apparently a lot. @tefoden dedicated a whole mixtape to the legendary Warp Records who’s been serving as the home of some of the best electronic musicians for the last three decades. Fun fact: he even included some other electronic giants (Hyperdub, Tri Angle). Go crazy with this selection that contains everything from Autechre through Burial to M.I.A.

 

Confession is a music label run by French future house pioneer Tchami. @willvernon created a perfectly mixed selection of the finest tracks released on the label. The perfect introduction! Fun fact: Tchami started using the term ‘future house’ as a tag on his SoundCloud posts which later became recognized in the electronic music industry. Tag your mixtapes, shape the future!

Mixtapes of the Week #19:
Eclectic electronica, pop & techno!

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.
