He says of the mix, “I wanted to start a musical trip between some deep and darker sounds to arrive to more techno influences, increasing the BPM too.

“I’ve also included some promos from my forthcoming releases, such as the EP that will be out on the Berlin label Kuukou Records run by Simina Grigoriu, where there are remixes from two artists that I really respect, Alex Kennon (second track of the mix) and Parisian pioneer, Mr. Claude Monnet. Take a listen and enjoy the music!”

Big Shot Guest Mix 330: Jay Hill

Jay_Hill_DJ_Big Shot Guest Mix

DJ/producer Jay Hill, who in a former life was a singer-songwriter in the realm of trip-hop on the West Coast, has been walking the border of house and techno ever since she relocated to the Big Apple in 2012. Now spending time in Philadelphia, where she’s got her own studio, Hill is focusing on production and remix projects. With tracks for King Street Sounds and remixes for the likes of Allies For Everyone under her belt, her remix of Glasys’ “The Pressure” is set for release shortly out on SpinSpin NYC

Taking the lessons she’s learned opening for Adam Beyer, Ida Engberg, Shonky, Dan Ghenacia, and Kevin Yost, Hill will bring her smooth grooves to Europe this summer by way of a DJ tour that’ll touch down in Greece, the UK and Germany.

Ahead of a blockbuster summer she takes control of Big Shot Guest Mix 330, a heavenly 17-track session featuring subterranean excursions from Frankie Deep, Jordan Peak, Pete Moss, Matthias Vogt, Mr. G and Jay Tripwire’s edit of her track “Falls the Shadows.”

Below read her inspiration behind the mix, then hit the play button on her gorgeous guest mix.

“I was trying to be super cool and record an all-vinyl set. Unfortunately, for the first (perfect) recording I forgot to hit the record button! After the second go, although I dearly love all the records, I wasn’t really feeling the selections. Plus, there were many songs I wanted to spin, but didn’t have them on vinyl. So I decided to do a third take using a mixture of both vinyl and digital, which seems to work well for me.

“My turntable/DJ sensei Sid Vaga taught me to not get so hung up on the format. Just because it’s vinyl, doesn’t mean the tracks will always flow well together.

“In most all of my recent DJ sets I’m using some classic house tracks. I had a nice trip down memory lane using one of the most memorable tracks that started my eternal love affair with house music, Everything but the Girl’s ‘Five Fathoms’ (Kevin Yost Remix).”

Big Shot Guest Mix 327: Stan Kolev

Stan-Kolev

Fresh from releasing “Fill Me Up,” Miami-based progressive house Stan Kolev takes the reigns of our latest Big Shot Guest Mix.

“I spent almost three months touring in Europe last summer and when I got back to Miami I was fully charged and ready to get back to the studio, because I was so inspired by all the emotions and positive experiences during that trip, and also by the beautiful voice of Sula Mae,” he says of his latest and greatest. “I love to use vocals in my music, especially if they are unique. I think it adds another dimension to the creative process. Sula Mae has a unique blend in her voice that I would describe as mellow jazzy melancholy. The combination of that and any electronic music composition is unique.”

Kolev’s ten-track session brandishes his trademark bold, techy prog-house signature. “I wanted to create a deep and melodic mix, so I’ve included four of my latest tracks to give the Big Shot listeners an insight into my musical style. Plus, there’s some really cool tracks by Betoko, Quivver, Jeremy Olander, Julian Wassermann and Nora En Pure.”

  2. Betoko – Crazy Jack (Original Mix)

I mixed this DJ set for every hardgroove fan. It’s mixed so that you can just only listen and enjoy the tracks but it’s good for dancing too. I don’t have any plan [sic] when I am playing. I just start playing and the tracks come…. It’s all about how I feel or from my mood. Hope you all will like this DJ set. Let the Hardgroove force be with you all. Peace!
