Bruce Is My Sanctuary



A warm, funky, weird, international acid trip for your ears.

This mix was inspired by a couple things – the first was that I spend a lot of time in dance music centered environments. The untz untz, while I love it, can get a little overwhelming for me after hours or while traveling. So, for a lot of the mixes I've done lately, I have taken a more hi-fi home listening / headphone experience approach so that you can wiggle around in your underwear while you clean your house, decompress post-gig, or have a trusty audio travel companion.

The second source of inspiration was looking back at a collection of mixes I recorded at a summer residency I had two years ago at a fancy, highbrow rooftop pool. The only reason I like gigs like that is because you're strictly there to set a vibe, and not pressured by a dance floor... and the view is nice, of course. I revisit those recordings often – they consist of a lot of dub, African, Latin and Brazilian funk and disco – you know, balearic stuff. Fit for a hot afternoon by any body of water.

This mix was recorded to cassette tape and then digitize, this is the result!

Right Tunes Wrong Speed



Kick off your shoes, sip on some sizzurp and sink deep into a shag carpet, like a less scary floor scene in Trainspotting.

Banker's Club



Funkontrol's debut single on motherfucking Tommy Boy is some heavy duty club heat. Banker's Club will put soundsystems to work and melt bluetooth speakers. Kudos to former DBJ contributor Skinny Friedman and Scott Melker on the new project. Go get it.

We Could Stay Together



The story according to Duckcomb:
This is a faithful recreation of a vintage re-edit originally on the Hot Tracks label and is very rare! My DJ partner Steve Shakewell put in a request that I re-do this edit and I assumed it would be a breeze but it was really tough! I can't imagine how this was done on tape in the early 80's! Anyways, it's a great tune and a great edit and now you can spin it!
