Red-hot Naples-bred house duo M.F.S: Observatory – Mattia Turchetti and Francesco Cozzolino – have been on a creative tear for the better part of the past two years.
In addition to releasing on Smiley Fingers, Danny Serrano’s Eat and Beat and contributing a fiery track to Global Lovers V2: Italy, the London-based duo’s Observatory Music has issued formidable tracks by No Else, Nukem & Pazkal, Black Girl / White Girl and Arado.
As the pair prepare to unveil more dance floor delights, they graciously took time out to craft an exclusive Big Shot Guest Mix. The session arrives before the release of Killed Kassette & M.F.S: Observatory’s Freak It EP out September 27 on Roush.
Over the trajectory of 20 tracks, Mattia and Francesco take us on an incredible journey, featuring their favorite songs of the moment, latest productions and freshest tracks from their label.
Speaking about the mix the pair said, “We have also included songs from our latest collaboration with Andre Salmon released on Percomaniacs and one that will be released soon on Roush label with Killed Kassette. We have included the tracks of some of our favorite producers like Black Girl / White Girl, Subjoi and Luna City Express.”

To celebrate his label’s amazing milestone, label boss DJ Samer dug into the imprint’s deep catalog of progressive-house gold and whipped up an exclusive retrospective mix.
Samer’s 15-track session features choice offerings from Audioglider, BOD, Luke Chable, Barry Jamieson, Fitalic, Inkfish, Robert Solheim and more.
Samer tells us of the mix, “Quite frankly, I am shocked at how much quality music we have produced and put out over the last 15 years…I hope you enjoy listening to this mix as much as I did creating it. It certainly brought back some amazing memories.”

For the latest Big Shot Guest Mix we tapped London-based Roberto Sodano (a.k.a. Audioglider) to sculpt a spectacular session brimming with lush, warm electronica and progressive house. The glistening, atmospheric 10-track session, which features a pair of his own gorgeous cuts as well as tracks and mixes by Drew Miller, RafaEL and Francesco Pico, arrives after the release of James Zabiela‘s remix of his “Chemtrails” single on Pangea.
Sodano had this to say about the stunning mix:
“I’ve put this mix together to reflect the sounds that are really doing it for me at the moment as well as sneaking in some of my own tracks and remixes I’ve done recently. I love big melodies that seep into your brain without the cheese. And a syncopated drum and bass combo. It’s gotta have some swing and swagger. I’m also a big fan of Scandinavian pop artist Sigrid and included a cheeky unofficial remix I did at the start. Off to see her tonite at the Brixton Academy so see ya later.”
