Six months after their first release, TIMO JUUTI & HECTOR 87 have already remixed Avicii and made bootleg of Dada Life , M83 and LMFAO hits, released a few singles and had remixes on renowned house labels such as Pornostar and StoneyBoy, they have also found themselves included on two of Hed Kandi’s famous compilations A Taste of Kandi Summer and Disco Heaven 2011.
TIMO JUUTI & HECTOR 87, a crazy floor destroying duo hailing from the northernmost part of Finland, have been sky rocketing across the scene during 2011. After they got bored of writing the same old music year after year, they allegedly raided a local library to sample loads of old disco records, they used these to create something totally different, their very own blend of disco house and pop-savvy electro. This unique sound immediately raised interest within the pros and the clubbers, and found them included on numerous compilations, airplay on BBC radio 1 followed with support from top notch DJs such as Chuckie (and Fearne Cotton).
“If GOA was cool and filled with French people, and psy-trance never happened….Sweetlight would RULE the beaches”
The first time I heard the name Sweetlight was when I was Djing with Ivan Smagghe and he played this insane trance-rave-bomb and I got acid flashbacks from 94 and ran up to the booth and asked what is that and he said (as if I was the last guy on the planet to find out)…..”it’s called ABUSATOR”. The 2manydjs did an edit, and over the next year, that Sweetlight record was an anthem that we all played EVERYWHERE, one of those records that never let’s you down, one of those tracks that makes your job as a DJ very easy. So good it makes you lazy.
Then last year at Sonar, I went to hear them play live, and right before their set I met them, and met Julien and he gave me a CD with some new stuff on it. By ACCIDENT, he gave me a CDR with all his personal stuff as well….and I fell madly in love with one of those songs…..and now after a worldwide legal battle, hundreds of emails, a million rocked parties and a few broken hearts, I am very proud to present “Le Grand Sommeil”
I don’t know so much about him, but French people tell me Etienne Daho is a big deal…..and this track is a rave-trance-poptravaganze featuring a big chunk of a famous Daho song. Now I know a lot of you don’t like trance or pop or French people….BUT trust me…this is magic. I have been playing it last in my sets all year and it is pure modern trance romance……it is the future and the past all rolled up into one.
And then, just when you are reduced to tears of joy on the dance floor….the b-side brings a gorgeous guitar driven late night New Order lite love-jam to ease you down gently
I liked this record so much, I re-launched my label for it.
10,000 followers reached! Thank you - I’m touched. So maybe I should start a “free monthly edit” series. I think it ‘s more personal than a monthly mix with current releases every other dj drives over with their tractors. Not to mention it’s more fun for me to make and hopefully for you to listen to and play out yourselves. This month’s edit is Gepy & Gepy’s “Man Machine” from the classic Body to Body LP. Gepy left us 2 years ago and this is also an occasion to remember Italy’s most soulful singer, possibly the Italian Barry White or something. Downloads are ON

Disco funk of the highest order!
At just under four and a half minutes the album version was to short for me and I felt the track had more to give. I don’t know if a 12inch mix was ever available, but I thought I would have a go and make my own.
By now you should know what to expect, a simple cut and paste job with nothing added to stay true to the original material, just the way I want it to sound when I play it out or on my headphones.
If you download this please be nice and leave a comment or at least click the favourite button, after all, nobody likes a free loader.
“A favorite of drunk DJs, hot chicks and laser lovers everywhere”
San Francisco’s hometown stars TigerCat get the disco rerub from UK legend Greg Wilson, and bi-coastal beard scratcher’s Nick Chacona & Anthony Mansfield. Seduced by the sultry vocals of banging’ hot front woman Natasha Adorlee Johnson, Weighed Down coaxes you off your bar stool and onto the dance floor. Greg’s mix stays true to the original vibe with a taste of his signature disco dub complete with a tasty break. On the flip side Nick and Anthony take take you on a journey through the kind of deep, primal, electro underground party you emerge from 2 days later. Hector Works is coming at yah with thwacking beats, jamming treats and maybe even a cord progression.
This is for the Warriors. A song made using lots of gameboys, eggs, toasters, scissors, and a series of other bizarre instruments and synthesizers. This is another track off my “Splitting Branches” Album coming soon. The cover art was made directly for the song in result of a collaboration by two of tree’s visual artists; Zane Prater: http://zaneprater.blogspot.com/ & Drew Grasso: http://www.flickr.com/photos/70825105@N03/
