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!

We’re very happy to inform you about a new monthly partyconcept in Ghent ‘No Way Back’. This Saturday, the 12th, is the first edition with an incredible line-up! The guys from No Way Back invited both Tim Sweeney (from Beats In Space) and JG Wilkes (from Optimo Espacio)! The party is organised by resident dj’s Down+Out, who are better known as Garreth Mc Mullan and The Michael. Garreth did a mixtape to celebrite the first edition, which you can find here. Forthcoming guests on No Way Back are Todd Terje, Drop Out Orchestra and Jacques Renault. Their goal is to raise Ghent Nightlife to old hights. Well, it all looks very promising to us!

When Italian superstar of the international nu-disco scene Bottin, known from releases on Italians Do It Better, Bearfunk, Eskimo, etc…, told King DJ he was going to be in Belgium, the two decided to go for a nice and fun party with some grade A music where both can completely go for “their thing”. Hospitable as we know Charlatan to be, it wasn’t a problem to get the cozy backroom Barbaar open for this, possibly the first of many to come.This is going to be a good one, folks!

If you are into really good party music and great vibes, and are open to something new as well as something old, as long as it’s sexy, this is the party for you. This is clubbing the way it was designed, a trip down past forgotten jams and future sounds of all era’s, a party where the music is so good that it’s completely in service of the general vibe. Come on down if you’re up for a night of two truly skillful dj’s taking you on a genuine trip that’ll make you feel alright, also if you’re more into just hangin’ out. Even better if you’ve got them dancin’ feet!

Larry Levan’s holy spirit will be visiting if you are. Just know that everyone’s gonna be there, so don’t be the exception!  You wouldn’t want to miss this…  ;- )

Oh, and also: Dancin’ Feet is here for a great party, and nothing else, so the entrance is free!

Dancin’ Feet will help you to get ready for some great King DJ releases coming up soon on Bearfunk, Chicken Lips’ Lipservice imprint, Nang,… and for the upcoming Swingers Club in Rumba on March 9th, where he’ll also be playing.

And finally, just to get you into the mood already, and maybe to trick you into sympathy, here’s a free mp3 for your ears only. It’s a King DJ re-edit of ‘Shake It Baby Love’ by Ferrara.
