Australia-born, Berlin-based DJ, producer and long-standing NTS Radio host Bell Towers has become widely respected for his unique brand of ‘80s influenced house and disco over the past several years, with a steady stream of releases on labels like Public Possession, Cocktail D’amore and Unknown To The Unknown.
Party Crashers – This Is How We Do It
Super fresh party starter I found in Melting Point Records (Berlin) – somewhere I’m always happy to spend an hour flicking through the mixed “classics” crates.
From the mid-90s but could be older, kinda classic Chicago style with some deep Detroit-y keys slapped on top… fun/addictive/immediate music… ‘This is how we do it!’
The Specialist – Diffusion
A very crispy, mind-numbingly repetitive track that would probably work pretty well mixed with the Party Crashers jam above. First came across Dave Peoples from a Walt J and Dave P record I found way back when in Dixons Brunswick St (readers in Australia may find that amusing), had it storage for years then duly flipped it when I discovered it was going for £££ on Discogs. I won’t be flipping this record anytime soon.
Greg Greene – The Day I Dream
Random find at Sound Metaphors Records (Berlin). Really lovely mellow house track that makes me wanna be partying in a warehouse awash with dappled morning light, on the beach drinking a spritz w/ friends, or smth like that.
Unfortunately swung so hard it’s kinda almost impossible to mix in, so yeah, I’ll be saving this for those sunrise moments when things are allowed to get a little sloppy.
