Big Shot Guest Mix 352: DJ Dobrel

DJ Dobrel Big Shot Guest Mix 352

With summer on the horizon and better times ahead of us, Dublin-based DJ/producer DJ Dobrel steps up to take control of Big Shot Guest Mix 352. After releasing his “So Far Away” collaboration with Szaby and Robbie Rosen released in March, he’s coming in h-o-t.

For his 14-track mix session, DJ Dobrel plunges into the deep end of house music’s vast ocean and navigates himself through a current of choice cuts by T.Markakis, Yotto, VIGI, Saison, Sebb Junior and Gorge.

“For this mix,” he tells us, “I went for a deep-in-the-summer feeling that takes me back to that lounge club we all love so much and desperately want to be back at.”

Big Shot Guest Mix 351: 16 Faces

Big Shot Guest Mix 16 Faces

Berlin-based Australian artist and sound designer 16 Faces — a stealthy sonic explorer who investigates deep ambient soundscapes, experimental concepts and apocalyptic techno — is at the helm of our latest guest mix.

He recently released his “Into the Abyss” debut, which comprises the soundtrack to the short film Circadian directed by Petter Jensen for the Japanese fashion brand Beaugan. (It’s coincidentally the 16th song on his guest mix.)

Check his musically sprawling, cinematic 60-minute session featuring diverse tracks from Air, Jerry Goldsmith, Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow, Ben Frost and Thom Yorke.

He aptly describes the mix as “a journey through disjointed film soundscapes devoid of their imagery to experience your mind’s eye darkest dreams, passing through death, limbo and your inevitable rebirth.”

“This was a really fun mix,” Spen says. “The first and last songs are remixes I did during the pandemic. They were done for other labels which I normally don’t have time to do.
