Michael The Lion Mix for Soul Clap

"This mix is made up of tunes that are the musical lineage or the musical forbears of the Michael The Lion persona. Over the years I have produced tons of tracks and edits as DJ Apt One and with my group RCMP - many of which came to ultimately make up the basis of the Michael The Lion sound. These are those tunes, combined with some Michael The Lion songs, including Funk Train."

Start The World / You've Got Style

Universal Cave Records 003 pairs another record digging and DJ duo, Philadelphia's D. Lord and Werner Williams. D. Lord's 'Start the World' is stampeding euro funk with chainsawing clav and an unrelenting bass groove. Maximum funk effect achieved with vital precision. Werner Williams' 'You've Got Style' exudes cool. It's one part psychedelic synth groove and one part cockeyed classic rock, soaring harmonies & juju for days - a long lost cousin to Fox's 'The Juggler.'

Limited 7" available now from Juno, Pacific Beach Vinyl and a bunch of other sellers. See the full list on Soundcloud. Vinyl only - no digital.

DJ Apt One - Live Italo Mix on WKDU FM

Here's a live mix I threw down on WKDU in Philadelphia during their Electronic Music Marathon in October.  I was the self-nominated "roots of electronic music" presenter.  Lots of italo and classic electro 12 inches alongside my own edits.  Kinda sloppy on the mixing but I make no apologies, I did a 4 hour set and then came over to the radio station and threw down from 2-4 AM while gassed up on Red Bull.

The Splash Band - The End (Assault on Precinct 13)
Kano - Ikeya-Seki
Baby's Gang - Happy Song
Plastic Mode - Mi Amor
Yaz - Situation (12" dub)

Mr. Flagio - Take A Chance (DJ Apt One Edit)
International Music System - Run Away
Quadrant Six - Body Mechanic
Information Society - Running
Extra T's - ET Boogie (12" instrumental)
