erol alkan presents disco 3000.


this amazing 80 minutes mix of finest disco (yes, actual disco!) by erol alkan just showed up on our radar, coming straight from the source and once again proves that he is one of the best dj's alive. this is what the master himself has to say about 'disco 3000':

"i've put together a 80 minute mix of some disco vibes which are lighting up my stratosphere. i began mixing it up just for my own selfish ipod needs during a day off i had at christmas and only recently got round to finishing due to album commitments. most of the tracks are re-edited in some form or over, and i splashed some moody synth drizzle over some of the beats. i got another hour of this mix sitting about, dunno, i maybe save it for another edition. would love to play club sets more like this, who knows, maybe i will... anyone wanna do a party?".

and i hear you, i would love to have some actual disco parties and i hear that from a lot of others too but for some reason no one gets the fuck up and just does it. maybe i should get busy on that right now. whatever, get the mix right now, as it is the best disco mix you will be able to grab until erol alkan decides to finish the next edition. and there is no tracklist as he wants to 'keep it old school and let the beauty of discovery triumph over convenience'. way to go. disco just wouldn't feel the same if it wasn't such hard work to dig for the diamonds.

You want actual disco parties? Well come on over to San Francisco where we seem to be f*cking PLAGUED by them. Seriously, it gets old after a while.

Now if someone wants to mix some rare groove in with some new obscure shit, be my guest...

85 percent of this stuff is from monsieur willy.

It's so obvious.

Willy's awful vinyl ripping technique (that results in a overly crisp highend) is rearing its ugly head all throughout this mix.

This man did nothing but browse around willys blog and started downloading shit.

Obscure my butthole... TRY AGAIN, YOU FUCK.

discodust said...

i doubt that's where the tracks are from but any way: you are meant to listen to the music, not analyze ripping techniques or origins of the tracks.

i don't give a fuck and i don't have the time to scan the blogs of every monsieur willy in the world. and even if i had i'd be more than glad to come across a mix as good as this one.

it's unbelievable that there's always some dork who thinks he has to bitch. if you don't like it, just go away. no one cares about any john smiths not digging it.

jeez. seriously, how can anyone hate on that mix at all?

So good, I must share this with people. Erol is a genius.

Erol is hitting berlin this FRIDAY!

Erol Alkan said...

Thanks for the kind words and i'm glad many of you are enjoying the mix.

To the chap who implied i took these tracks from a blog, well, you are wrong. Every track is from vinyl, and the 'high end'theory is more to do with eq and compression then anything else..

BUT you are right in pointing me in the right direction to the blog, I'd honestly never seen it before and I'm gonna spend a fair while parked over there.

With love
