Common Thread w/ Balaban - selected by Patrick

"Some of you might know I’m a big fan of the Common Thread record label from Rotterdam, run by Mitchell Goor. Normally this show is done by the label boss himself, but this month one of his artists took over. I never heard a DJ set from Balaban, I only knew the track he released on the latest VA of the label. It turns out that he’s quite a selector as well. If you’re into dark slow beat tribal and industrial-esque stuff, be sure to check out this show!"

BAR Radio w/ Roelien & Lien - selected by Ofra

"And for the second time I really enjoyed the set of Red Light Radio residents, Roelien & Lieneke for Bar Radio @Operator. Two hours of (slow) wave, experimental and some new beat sounds. Their selection of tracks are a very nice blend of tracks which I'd never heard and my all-time favourites like Beat in The Street (Beat, Beat, Beat) and Over the Shoulder (Ministry)! Treat yourself with this show.."

Cheers Time with Mick and Alex - selected by Serge

"For me, personally, the most fun and best show of the month was obviously and again, 'Cheers Time', with Mick and Alex. I met these two fellas in De School in Amsterdam which is where we regularly bump in to each other and catch up on our shared love and passion for music and other “things”. These guys have great musical knowledge which you can definitely hear from their sets. They know their stuff and dig deep for the most obscure, yet interesting tracks. Definitely a couple to look out for! Cheers Mick & Alex! Full support!"

Los Bangeles Radio - selected by Margriet

"Back with the 11th edition of their show, Los Bangeles’ set suits the warm weather perfectly bringing you summer-vibes all along. With a mix between beats, bass, funk, jazz and old-school hip-hop both Urvinho and Lee Funksta make sure you will groove through your day, which I did with this set on the background! "

Steeldrum For Lovers - selected by Wouter

"Steeldrums for lovers is back! The upcoming vinyl lover is killing it lately with his amazing sets. This two hour set is filled with jazz, funk, break-beat, ambient and more. A perfect DJ-set for hot summer days with a cold desperado in one hand and perhaps a little green cigarette in the other. Enjoy!"
