Here at DCGS Towers, we’re excited to announce for 2018, a triumvirate series of Summer Soundclashes, featuring some carefully selected DJ’s from around the world.
Kicking things off on 27th June, we head to the Windy City to pillage the collection of one;
DARRYN JONES (J.A.W FAMILY)
Darryn has been plying his trade for some time around his home town, and now his musical wings are flourishing with triumphant sets around Europe. Expect to hear more from this discofied party rocker in the coming months…..we’ve decided to up the ante and keep both of our selections secret….if you wanna join in the fun and guess the titles then post away, and I’ll add the tracklisting when the correct guesses come in. Keep ’em peeled for the sweet audio treats, and let the games begin!
3:00pm – 4:00pm
Greg Belson – Time Less
An infrequent broadcast hosted by DJ Greg Belson, focusing on the beatscapes of 90’s club culture. Tracks that were forward thinking in production techniques, ground breaking in textures and time signatures but yet often forgotten. With the 2000’s came the advent of more powerful computers, easier accessibility to software and an ease to create at home; beatmakers of the 90’s had to either adapt or fall by the wayside. We’ll be unearthing some of the cream of the crop, that still relied on outboard gear, physical mixing desks and insane wired up patch bays to get the job done. With it came a certain warmth, particularly when it was arguably the last bastion of dance music to promote, press and present their music solely onto vinyl….it’s within these grooves that we’d like to celebrate with you a time in beat making. Join us as we spin the original format of what truly was a ‘Time-Less’ age.
4:00pm – 6:00pm
Boss Harmony – Punky Reggae Party
Punky Reggae Party broadcasts every 2nd & 4th Wednesday of the month and features musical selections from the punk & post-punk period between 1977 – 1982 (although other era’s, sub-genres & pre-punk influences are often represented), as well as Jamaican music from the ska, rock steady & roots reggae era’s, respectively. Many of the British post-punk bands were influenced by reggae music & it’s recording techniques, and that experimental spark is the nucleus of the show.
6:00pm – 8:00pm
