Bag Raiders - Snake Charmer

We don't usually post just about one song here on the Juicy! blog but for this banger i just had to make an exeption. Bag Raiders have always made really funky upbeat electro/disco that tended to be fairly bass heavy but with this tune they've really pulled it out of the bag (sigh)...

It's got everything, whistles, bells, bass and an unbelieveably catchy hook line, i got it yesterday and already i've listened to it about 20 times...

Get it here...

He's delivered a beaut of a big room mix featuring tunes from dons of the scene such as Avicii, AN21, Max Vangeli and Michael Woods, as well as including the Juicy! bootleg of Tensnake & BBK and a cheeky edit of Journey, give it a listen and follow him on soundcloud for some of his fantastic bootlegs, ranging from liquid d'n'b to progressive house...

Tonti's Summer Mixtape (Future, Past & Present House & Club Vibes) --- Free Download by Tonti

My favourite of his bootlegs, a banger in the clubs for suuree - Tonti - I Said American Boy

And a few of my favourite current tunes:-

Say Yes To Another Success - Say Yes To Another Excess Bangerrr from the new collaboration between Stopmakingme and The C-90s, [Juicy! Juiciest Cut]

Nightriders - Hey (Nom De Strip Remix) - Ian had this in the archives but ever since Dirty Vegas dropped it in Princes Street Gardens we've been hammering it, a weapon for any DJ!

Nat Self - Madam Bazooka - featured in the mix, massive cut handed my way by none other than Tonti himself!

Stay locked to the blog for more of the same, including forays into production, with Ian currently holing himself away in his room with Ableton and Logic anything could happen.

Juicy! Presents... No. 19 Music

Today I want to introduce a record label that has been putting out some seriously good music from a while now from some producers we've been raving about like Soul Clap, Lee Foss, Jamie Jones, DJ Sneak and Art Department. Also interestingly the name No. 19 Music comes from the philosophy behind the label... 

"The No.19 brand/concept was created based on ideas expressed in article No.19 of the declaration of human rights - "Freedom of Expression". The principles and values underlying article 19 of this declaration - the protection of free expression are: promoting the search for truth, enhancing social and political participation, and enabling self-fulfillment and self-expression" 

Below are some tracks from the producers that they're championing at the moment...  

Miguel Campbell is a producer that prides himself on his french electro styled disco that is influenced heavily by early daft punk sounds and it's crazy good, perfect summer vibes.
Miguel Campbell - Metro Line by Gouranga

Miguel Campbell - The Metro Theory EP

Miguel Campbell - I Can't Get Enough

Also Soul Clap, who are signed to No. 19 have just released a compilation album called Social Experiments 002 featuring a shit ton of new music from pretty much everyone from the label, it's absolutely amazing. Higlights include... James Teej - Galaktik, Miguel Campbell - Kiss & Tell, Deniz Kurtel - The L Word. If you're looking to get into the deepish underground house you'll do no better than getting this compilation...

Get it here... Soul Clap - Social Experiments 002

Juicy! - The Red Bull Mixtape w/Toddla T & Clouds


We've been quiet on the blogging front over the past week, and for good reason. Exams are over, summer has offically began, the countdown to Exit festival has started and the Juicy! DJs got invited down to London by Red Bull to cover a project they're working on...

The Red Bull Mixtape Vol. 1.

The idea behind it is really quite simple, take 9 of the most promising up & coming artists representing each area of the UK, throw them in a state of the art studio with Steel City's Toddla T, compress it all into a Mixtape for free download over a period of 10 days then spray it all over the internet.

What do you get? Probably one of the most exiting musical projects we've seen in a long time.

After having got completley wired off all the free Red Bull we could drink, we stole some time with two producers making some serious waves within the techno scene, hailing from Perth but now based in Edinburgh...  Clouds

We talk about all sorts of stuff, getting signed to Fake Blood's Label Blood Music, getting headhunted by Tiga's Turbo label, how their heavy party techno mixes with Toddla's dancehall vibes, exciting pints of beer and why they'd love to hear Daft Punk play tunes from an old jukebox in their local working man's club. Listen to it below...

We've also started to ask everyone we interview for their current top 3 tunes they're hammering out in their sets...

Clouds Top 3...

Adam Beyer & Jesper Dahlback - As If Dubs

Altern8 - Frequency (Djedjotronic Edit)

Dustin Zahn - Stranger To Stability (Len Faki's Podium Mix)

Next up, we got the pleasure of meeting DJ/broadcaster/producer, none other than the self titled 'boom DJ from the steel city'... Toddla T

Not gonna lie, he's a gent, and nuts, and this is one of the funniest interviews we've done to date. We get the low down from him on all sorts of stuff, his label Girl Music, his collaboration with Roska - Toddska, where he's looking forward to playing the most over the summer, why he likes to drink Guiness and Red Bull, eating waffles and chicken and finally who would win in a fight between Toddla T & Mr T.

I swear we chat more and more shit each interview, check it out for yourselves...

Toddla T Top 3...

Des Demure - Variable

Toddla T - Take It Back (2 Bears Remix)

David Heartbreak - Chavvi

Stay glued to the Juicy! blog and we'll post all about the Red Bull Mixtape when it gets properly released along with loads of photos and videos from the whole 10 days. We didn't get a sneak preview of the tracks they were producing so we're super exited to hear what each collaboration has turned out like!

Big thanks to Leroy, Nick, Shannon, Mike and everyone else at Red Bull and of course Toddla T and Clouds for being such gents.

Remember to follow us on... Facebook & Twitter for all the latest and greatest in tunes, interviews, news and patter....
