I was in the mood for party rockers this week. Got a phone call in the middle and caused a massively poor mix but, I was happy with the tracks and I keep with the theme of record and put it up. Maybe it's being from Miami, but I have a special place in my heart for anything 130 BPM. P. Filthy Loves You.

Jerome Derradji Presents Kill Yourself Dancing: The Story of Sunset Record Inc. Chicago 1985-89 (Still Music)
Taken from press release:
Flashback to Chicago in 1985, when House Music was just being born.
A few kids - Matt Warren, Miguel Garcia and Ralphi Rosario, get together to join forces with the already established Sunset Mobile Disco - owned by brothers Alex and Robert Rojo - to create a new record label as an outlet for their productions. In the following 4 years, Sunset Records Inc. released some of the most groundbreaking Chicago House records, mixing New Wave, Disco and Industrial influences with "beat tracks" and a huge amount of talent expertly scouted by Matt Warren & Miguel Garcia.
While largely remaining in the shadows of larger labels like Trax and Dj International, the metamorphosis of Sunset Mobile Disco into Sunset Records Inc. perfectly illustrates the wide range of influences that gave Chicago’s dance scene its unique sound.
Jerome Derradji, Chicago-based DJ, artist, Still Music Chicago owner, and virtual electronic music encyclopedia -- is proud to present the definitive story of Sunset Records Inc. Kill Yourself Dancing: The Story of Sunset Record Inc. Chicago 1985-89 is set for release on August 20th, 2013, on Still Music. With a detailed history written by Jacob Arnold, of one of Chicago's House Music best kept secrets, the collection comes in a superb gatefold double LP and a double cd compilation that includes remastered, rare and unreleased tracks from the Sunset Records Inc. label along with lost pictures and artifacts spread in the gatefold double LP version, and in a 23 page booklet for the double cd. No stone was left uncovered, and the attention to detail is staggering.

Out August 20th, 2013 on double gatefold LP, double cd
Greek producer Larry Gus has shared the first single, "The Night Patrols (A Man Asleep)", off his forthcoming 'Years Not Living' LP out August 19 on DFA. This reminds me of some lost Italian library track DJ Harvey would drop in the middle of his set, most likely owning the only copy that is known to exist.
An odd week for me and I recorded this mix on quite the odd date. 7.11.13...is the second to last time the date will be three consecutive prime numbers in our lifetime. The next and final date will be 11.13.17...Not sure if it means anything but I sure have changed a lot of my life in the past week for the better. Stay cool out there during these hot Summer days. P. Filthy Loves You.
Featuring tracks by Appleblim, George Fitzgerald, Vondelpark, Foamo, Foremost Poets and more.
First mix of July...went long and heavy this week dipping back into some recent favorite tracks. I was feeling off at first this week and then seemed to find a groove. P. Filthy loves You.
