Wez G - Little Disco Biscuit (DJ Set)

Wez G - Little Disco Biscuit

The best time for dance music in my opinion was the early 1990s. It was the heyday of the Rave Scene and dancefloors were packed with sky high dancing bods. The reason I like this period is not that the floors were filled with ecstasy takers, but that the music was at its peak. Dubby loops of bass and funk with a constant circular rhythm in the tents and clubs drove the E'd up crowd into a frenzy. The beats suited the experience of everyone - It was total unity and I think that over the years as the government has killed off the scene with various parliamentary acts (eg Criminal Justice Act 1994) and the total media frenzied attack on ecstasy, claiming it killed you, and the general shift towards commercialism and business, moved the music towards a different direction. Of course, post 1997 - even the dealers were selling ketamine and calling it ecstasy...It's as if the disco biscuits disappeared overnight. I think on the music front the DJs forgot the buzz which caused the whole vibe and we saw a scattering of genres and pigeonholing and musical snobbery... Well - a couple of decades on from that and digging about on Beatport, I noticed a trend back towards the old style music. Loops of bass hooks and that driving groove have reappeared. It's that old Italian sound which is so inspiring. Now most of it seems to be categorised as techno or deep house... but it seems the same old stuff that DJs from Laurent Garnier to Easygroove, from Carl Cox to Sasha, all used to bang out.

In this mix I've cut up a few old tracks with the new flavours plus slipped in a special edit from a live Universe Rave that took place only a few miles away from me in Magor in South Wales in the summer of 1992...

In the news recently there have been claims that Ecstasy cures cancer 100% guaranteed so maybe the pop idol generation will be ditching X-Factor, slipping on their shiny shirts and getting back to a diet of disco biscuits... Who knows? As long as good music thrives and Simon Cowell goes bankrupt I don't mind one little bit.

Another wet and cold summer and already autumn is upon us. Leaves, golden brown, scatter the floor in the country parks of South Wales and the wind and rain are ceaseless. This is another chillout special in the Wez G Mix series and blends in old and new, some recognisable, some maybe not so, all melodic in harmony and compiled in a way to calm, inspire and relax you as the days draw in and we head into the winter darkness.

Wez G - Free The Planet

It's been a long summer and there's been a break in my regular mixes. Anyway I'm back with a bang and keen to 'Free The Planet'. Watching the news here in the UK over the past year or so and I am detecting a disturbing pattern of police brutality and the erosion of our fundamental human rights. George Orwell's '1984' warns of a 'Big Brother' society where every thought is monitored and people punished for the most minor of detours from the authorities' policies. To me house music represents freedom. The feeling of unity you can only experience in the middle of the dancefloor gives people breath and helps you to evade the oppression of our masters. I don't want everyone to listen to this and go out smashing the windows in JJB Sports for some new trainers in a violent orgy of looting. Just turn on the speakers, enjoy what (good) summer weather we have left and chill to the sounds of liberty.

Wez G - Network Transmit

Wez G - Network Transmit

Global Communication has never been more open... In the past decade we have experienced a worldwide internet revolution that has widened our horizons more than ever before. At the touch of a button you can meet and speak to people on the other side of the planet via the multitude of ever-expanding social networks. DJs have to take advantage of this great leap forward and broadcast to the wide world. It's a weird phenomenon, recording a little DJ Mix, clicking a few buttons and then getting feedback from an audience that you don't see in reality, that usually comes from an completely different civilization and way of life. It's a real eyeopener but one that I enjoy. Help distribute this mix to your friends, wherever you may be listening. The mix represents the current sounds of house music as heard by my ears, here in a tiny Welsh village called Caldicot.

Wez G - Spooky Rhythm (DJ Set)

Haunted House? Well - for want of a better title - I though there was some spooky theme going on in the track titles for this deep and funky mix which explores some of the finer elements of 2011 deep house, building to a crescendo with a classic remake of Superchumbo's Revolution, concluding with one of the finer tracks from Guy J's new 1000 words album. Don't miss out on my old Swedish matey Nibc's nice remix on his own label, Trunkfunk, one to watch out for as it booms out sounds from Berlin. Get with the Spooky Rhythm...

Wez G - True Romance

The songs included on this mix seemed to me to have a lovey dovey theme and feel so hence the title 'True Romance'. Deep and funky, it flows nicely, with stand out tracks from Glimpse and Vincenzo and obviously the opening classic from A Man Called Adam. Light some candles and slap a nice meal on the table, while tuned into some upfront Wez G house music.
