All the best exclusive disco and house guestmixes
Closed Paradise - House of Disco Guestmix
March 16, 2016 11:23 AM PDT
Todays guest in our podcast series plumbs the deeper ends of house and has turned in some serious tackle for Kolour, Whiskey Disco and Masterworks over the past while. We love his almost underwater disco and the state of hypnosis we find ourselves under when we listen to his productions. Frenchman 'Closed Paradise' not his real name surprisingly, has turned in a vinyl only mix leaning on his classic house influences and it's a breath of fresh air to say the least. That 'Precious Little Diamond' Remix.......you'll see.Snacks - House of Disco Guestmix

Today's guest mix is from one of our latest housemates and top buzzers 'Snacks'. This duo have been producing some of our favourite sonic treats from their studio in Berlin and we're happy to have them on our latest release as remixers and on an upcoming release with their own solo ep. Fun is the name of the game when these two dj and this mix doesn't stop the party.Luxxury - House of Disco Guestmix

Today for the 43rd mix in our guest mix series we have LA based edit maestro 'Luxxury' weighing in with a slow edits mixtape to soundtrack your sunsets until the summer winds down. There's a very familiar feeling to this mix indeed as Luxxury puts his laid back touch on artists like 'The Doors', 'Paul Simon', 'Tears For Fears', 'Dolly Parton'and the list just goes on. It's a really interesting to hear his approach to revitalising something you already know so well and we think he manages to put his own voice in there.
A mixtape with an hour’s worth of just-slightly-north of 100bpm edits, designed for a sly 3am skinny dip in the rooftop pool at the hotel. Take off your clothes and those of a close friend, lover, or admirer; put on those white bathrobes (which are NOT free for you take home with you, btw); and try and contain your giddy giggles as you take the elevator to the top floor. Do what you need to do to convince the poolside bartender to let you slip this mix on the soundsystem as he leaves you to enjoy a slow, delicious moonlight swim.Fouk - House of Disco Guestmix

Today’s guest mix is from a duo of producers Daniel Leseman & Hans Peeman (Junktion) that have recently joined forces under the moniker Fouk. Responsible for some of our favourite productions over the past year these guys and their new label Outplay are certainly on form. It’s always a bit of an experiment when two producers join forces and very often it doesn’t quite work, however their styles, bolstered by their friendship, have joined seamlessly (or so it appears).
Their mix for us today is full of funk, samples, groove and good records, just what we’re after. A particular highlight is the new Hauke Freer track and one from ‘Somethin Gunny’ we’d never heard before.Casino Times - House of Disco Guestmix
January 13, 2015 12:49 AM PST
Today's guest mix is from uk duo and all round gentlemen 'Casino Times', comprised of Nick Church & Joe Spencer. Casino Times is an act that has been close to the label for some time and has played a heap of our shows and released with us in the past and we've been meaning to get them onto our mix series for some time now and a recent performance at one of our events seemed like the perfect time to do a live recording. They first caught our ear on their 'Thats The Truth' release with Sccucci Manucci and since then have continued to evolve their sound and explore new directions rather than be easily categorised, which is not a common enough trait for producers in our opinion. One thing that always stands out for us with their mixes is their focus on building and atmosphere slowly and patiently with eclectic and unconventional track selections, and this mix is no different. Serving as a perfect warm up they tread some very deep waters here indeed!Harry Wolfman - House of Disco Guestmix
November 18, 2014 09:29 AM PST
Joining us for the 40th edition of our HoDcast is the latest fully fledged member of the House of Disco, Harry Wolfman. Harry has been on our radar for a long time now and having gotten involved with our ‘House of’ compilation series we felt it was time to get him more heavily involved. The result of which is a collaborative EP between himself and Skinny Love which has just come out on House of Disco. Harry’s roots in Hip Hop are clearly evident in his production sensibilities and more clearly his mixes.
The mix he has done for us is a wonderfully diverse homage to the sounds that Harry feels are most influential to him. Full of neatly wrapped surprises and familiar nostalgia it’s fits the brief for an all purpose mix perfectly, there’s no wrong time to press play on this one.Sixth Avenue Express - House of Disco Guestmix
July 23, 2014 09:29 AM PDT
Today’s guest mix see’s us get all cozy with one of our closest housemates. ‘Sixth Avenue Express’. Hailing from the peak district and based in London this producer has been flourishing this past year and has been growing a decent following as a result. Known for making emotionally delicate and subtly details productions SAE has a way with chords and vocals that is pretty rare for a producer so young. Having just released a solo EP with us called ‘I See’ we thought it was a good idea to reveal a little more about this artist and what they are all about.
Their mix is as we expected it to be, mid-tempo for the most part and sultry as hell. The tone is set from the get go with their choice to open with Darkside’s beautiful ‘Paper Trails’ and their leaning towards music with a warm soul is no better typified than with the inclusion of Candi Staton – Hallelujah Anyway (Larse Vocal) and a particular highlight for me is Terrence Pearce’s beautiful Halcyon which conjures memories of ‘man with a red face’ moments. It’s not all calm waters however as tracks like Max Graef’s Kotschleuder make sure your feet are still working. There’s also a track from their latest release with us called ‘Clandestine’ and another one to aptly see the mix out called ‘Goodbye’ which has just come out on a limited pink vinyl. We caught up with Sixth Avenue Express to have a chin wag.Greg Wilson - House of Disco Guestmix

We have a real treat today. Over 2 years ago we approached one of the men who responsible for turning us into disco fiends. We really didn’t expect to receive a response and when we did we were both surprised and enthused. This man was Greg Wilson. Not only did Greg take the time to give us one of our first guestmixes but he also spent an hour on the phone to us giving us a really in-depth insight into the scenes history and his origins as a Dj. Suffice to say we have the utmost respect for Greg who has always taken to time to ensure people accurately understand where these timeless tracks all came from and whats keeping them relevant.
Greg recently came down to play at one of our parties in London and has very kindly given us the recording of his live set to use as his second guestmix for us. We think you’ll agree that it cements his position as both an adventurous selector and a talented Dj. There is no tracklist for this one but that’s half the fun.Magnier - House of Disco Guestmix

Todays guestmix comes from House of Disco’s founder ‘Magnier’. It’s been a while since his last mix for us and with the summer being in full swing it seemed like the right time to get another out there and keep the mix series moving. This mix is full of classic laidback summer tracks, some guilty pleasures and a few cheeky edits. Mostly these tracks are the ones that have been following him around and resurfacing time and time again. Step outside, open a beer and enjoy it while it lasts folks.Satin Jackets - House of Disco Guestmix
July 08, 2013 11:17 AM PDT
It’s been a while since our last guestmix, and what better way to keep it lit then with an exclusive mix from an artist that’s a housemate of the label and a friend, Satin Jackets. The last year has been a big one for this German based outfit (no pun intended) with releases currently sitting high on Beatport charts, productions in great demand, a worldwide following and the kicking off of the first series of live shows all over the place. Judging by the outfits work ethos this is only going to be the tip of the iceberg.
Satin Jackets trademark sound is slow, sultry and brimming with optimism and todays mix reinforces this aesthetic. With a BPM that’s in no hurry this mix is full of summer heat. With plenty of hooky vocals and a non pretentious approach to track selection this typifies Satin Jackets ethos of music to make you smile. We caught up with Tim and Den to ask them a few questions, some pertinent and some pointless.
