First of all we want to thank everyone who attended the fourth edition of Swingers Club. We had a really good time and the music was ace from the beginning ’till the early hours. Big respect to the Mind Warp DJs: Exalt & Lt. Ludwig and WPH headhoncho: Red D.

We don’t have any more events planned for the near future, but we still can be your musical companion for the upcoming spring and summer months. We’ve listed up some nice mixtapes from Swingers Club residents and affiliates.

The first mixtape is from Liss., who is an allround nice guy from Sint-Truiden. He played at our very first party by the way. I had asked him to do a mixtape already a long time ago, in a time when this blog was more flourishing than now, and he finally recorded something. It was a bit unexpected, but I immediatly knew that it would be a mixtape with a good ‘feel’ and a great track selection. The mix is probably a bit housier and deeper than the mixes I’ve posted here before, but you should all know by now that we don’t like to think in boxes. You can expect tracks from Chez Damier, Manuel Tur and others.

After receiving the mix from Liss., I thought it would be a good opportunity to post some other stuff as well. Leroy, one of our residents, had recently released a new mixtape too. You can find it here. A selection of Disco, House and funk just as we like it! And why don’t you check out his former mix too. Same recipe, other ingredients.

Tibson, the newest Swingers resident, made a tape too. Already a couple of months ago actually, but it still sounds fresh to our ears! You can check it out at his soundcloud-page. Lovely mix that ends up pretty housy too!

Mind Warp, the radioshow from Exalt and Lt. Ludwig is now re-listenable online. It’s in Dutch, but most of the time they’ll let the music speak for itself. You will certainly enjoy their selection of new and old tunes, you might even spot some damn hard to find disco nuggets and old school electro classics!

And last and maybe also least, I started something new a couple of months ago: Beyond The Clouds. The first un-mix, un-mix because it isn’t really mixed, is a selection of very slow balearic tracks, jazz, mood music and other more obscure pieces of music. You can listen to the tape here.

By the way, we got some DJ-gig news too: Leroy & Tibson will open up Decadance (Ghent) on the We Play House Recordings labelnight on May the 6th. We, King & Cousin, will play at Café AperO on Sunday the 15th of May for the season ending of Elaba, Raoul Lambert‘s own boogie nights. It will not only be the season-ending of the Elaba-concept, it will also be an ending of an era for us, as it will probably be the last gig in Leuven as students. Leuven has been our homebase for about 6 years, but it’s time to move on now.

Enjoy listening and maybe we’ll catch each other on one of those two special occasions!

Jacques Renault just did a new dj-mix for Anthem Magazine, you can download it here. Expect some crazy disco grooves and edits, from Bohannon and D-Train, but also some new tunes like Shit Robot‘s latest dfa-single.

Jacques told us that they got a lot of stuff in the pipeline: There’s coming a new OTP Party Breaks release at the end of April, which will contain 4 Jacques Renault edits, an edit picture disc on Public Release and a new Runaway single ‘Broken Man’ which will be accompanied with a live remix ( as a teaser of the new Runaway live-project) and a remix from the hands of Brennan Green.

Also check out his recent release on Mystery Meat together with Lee Douglas.  What a busy bee!

Mind Warp is of course the name of a famous Patrick Cowley song, but it’s also a radioshow on Radio Scorpio, a local radio station situated in Leuven. The show is hosted by 3 young and enthusiastic guys: Arne, Ben & Bert better known as Viktor Bodrovski and Exalt.

Besides their weekly airtime on monday, they also throw parties in the Machine, a local club here in Leuven. They invited us twice already, and both times were very nice, that’s why we asked them to do a mixtape for our blog. Expect some freshly squeezed Italo and Chi-House classics spiced up with some more recent productions. Ace!
