"Африкатам" by Denez

Африкатам
by Deneez

For this episode we have a scene veteran, a long time record collector and one of the few vinyl only DJs that are left in Lithuania – Deneez. He has a fine taste in soul music and his studio mixes are rarities, just like some of the records in his collection. But this time Deneez has prepared something different. His mix is called “Африкатам”, which in russian means – AfricaThere. Indeed it’s there, far far away, almost unreachable. But hearing those rhythms, chants and spoken words brings it a bit closer. Happyness becomes simpler, sun seems to shine just a bit warmer and brighter, you feel this primal urge to move to the rhythms, to dance… See for yourself – one hour window to Africa, right there.

Sample Junkie
by Tafari

Edgaras Tafari, full-time jeweller and the host of the only radio show in Lithuania dedicated to reggae, Teigiamos Vibracijos on Start FM. Being the radio host one has a mission to educate. And Edgaras did just that by preparing an educational session. It would be quite obvious to expect a reggae mix from him, but not this time. This is the first mix by Tafari that isn’t reggae, but with his favourite sampled songs. A list of must-know material for the music heads. A set of golden tunes for everyone. More »
Dubartis #19 'Summer Explosion' by Lio

Summer Explosion
by Lio

It’s almost the middle of summer, vacation time and we have a mix for this occasion. Lio (or Aleksej Zinkov), a full-time motion designer and part-time music collector, has prepared a well matured selection, that is playfull like the sparkling wine bubbles. A blend of “good times” modern music from the past, American classics and heavy hitters from Russia, Poland and Sweden. As Lio says “This is a treat for friends and good people, a vacation for body and soul”. So put your deep thoughts aside (at least for a while) and dive into THAT summer vibe

Genn Bo – There Are No Miracles

One, two, three, four, here we go..

Nod, nod, nod, nod…

This is hide-and-seek.
This is a miracle on every corner.
This is the ice-cream melting on a hot sunny day, running through the fingers of a child while his mouth is wide open and his eyes awe at something that’s about to happen..
A miracle about to happen.. More »

Head of Stone
by KASETA

KASETA – tailor of beats, who delivers straight to the point. Straight into your head, making it nod right away. Keeping it that way with a slow decay. Like inertia of a heavy object, a stone. Or maybe by being stoned? “Head of stone” those are the words, that first come to mind after listening to this mixture of beats. Take a hit. More »
