Odd man out: a sunny afternoon, a drink in your hand and a new PestoMix running at a high level. What? It's raining on your side of the globe? We're sorry, but here's the seventh installment of our PestoMix series, this time compiled and mixed by Switzerland's Da Funk of Acryl Music - bringing the sunshine back to your life.

Earlier this year, we announced Da Funk's PestoMix as our January issue. It still is, although it's being released in February (which implies there's a second mix coming soon). Da Funk is currently very busy with a couple of releases (on Conya, Plastic City, Traxx Recordings and others) and remix projects for a bunch of hi class labels such as 2 Delicious. So we're happy he found the time to supply us with an excellent selection of banging tunes!

Here's the track list:

01. The Chi Chi Squad Feat. Kaori - Treat Me Right (Funk D'Void Remix) [Audiomatique]
02. Satoshi Fumi - Silhouette [Sequent]
03. Subsky - Cheating [Plastic City]
04. Da Funk - La Luz [Plastic City]
05. And If | - Finest Dream (Original Instrumental) [Rebirth]
06. Dan Berkson & James Priestley - Chariots (Motorcitysoul Remix) [Simple]
07. Da Funk - Roasted [Traxx]
08. Dirt Crew - Deep (We Are) (Francois Dubois Remix) [Dirt Crew]
09. Kurd Maverick - Let's Work (Jimpster Remix) [CR2]
10. Gus Gus - David (King Britt's Underwater Remix) [Stereo Seven]

PestoMix 006: Jon Silva Mixtapes Vol. 10 - Coast 2 Coast
PestoCast150x150
2008 is knocking on our doors, but we don't hear it as the last PestoMix for 2007 is pumping out of our speakers!

We thought it might be a good idea to publish another PestoMix now because 2008 will see a lot more issues of our popular podcast. For the one in January, we are proud to announce that our mate Da Funk of Acryl Music will be our man - between us, this has been overdue and we're really looking forward!

Furthermore, there's a competition running on our Pesto community: visit the board, register for free and post a link to your DJ mix because we're giving out guest slots for the PestoMix series! More details regarding this one can be found on the board and in a detailed news bulletin on this page in brief.

Here's the tracklist for PestoMix 006 (which is also Jon Silva Mixtapes Vol. 10 titled "Coast 2 Coast"). The tunes are a bit of looking to the past, the present and the future and except for three of them, they all were/are/will be released on Pesto or Traxx (which makes us pretty proud, we have to admit):

01. Rucyl - Love In War (Pete Gust's Midnight Vibe) [Pesto 013]
02. Jon Silva - Morning at midnight [PestoLP001]
03. Martin Haberland - Funky Situation (Natasza & Oscarsix Remix) [Pe!Music 007]

PestoMix 004 by Jon Silva
PestoCast150x150
Long time without a PestoMix, we're aware of that - well, here you are: PestoMix 004 by Pesto Music head honcho Jon Silva. At the same time being the actual PestoMix, loyal followers of the Jon Silva Mixtapes series will get Mixtapes Vol. 9: "Music For Beach Bars" with this issue.

With this PestoMix, we have to announce several improvements. First, we offer a 128kBits AAC stream that enables us to chapter the whole file. This means you will find links to the respective record labels and/or artists from within the file when you listen to it in iTunes (or any other AAC player being capable of displaying chapters - please see the link for compatible players).

For all those that need or want to stick with the MP3 format, there's good news, too: instead of a bitrate of 96kBits, we'll shift up to 192kBits in order to deliver more shining hifi glory to you.

PestoCast150x150
This is the second PestoCast, your podcast from Pesto Music!

This issue deals with Pesto 008 "Luv" by Simone de Nauw that has just entered the exclusive promo presales on beatport.com on the 20th of March.
We offer you no less than 14 different versions, including amazing and already highly acclaimed remixes by Spin Science from Estonia and El Farouki from France. Our worldwide DJ promo also got us some tremendous feedback in (please see this news bulletin) and we still have to publish the second part of the feedback.

Our featured release on this PestoCast is from our friend Nikola Gala who runs Escada Music. The release actually holds the top position on beatport's DeepHouse charts and there's a reason for it. Check it out on our PestoCast.

Free 320kBit MP3 from pesto.de!
freebee_reflect
First of all, we are really sorry to tell you that the release of Pesto 008 Simone de Nauw - Luv has been postponed for approximately two weeks.

Our way to say we're sorry is this: we offer you a free track download (i.e. at no costs). Yes, you read right - zero, nada, nichts, niente, ничего! You get a mastered, fully featured MP3 in full shining 320kBits glory - a file that could also go onto the release but we decided to give it to you as a present.

Good news #2 - you guessed it maybe: starting with today, we launch a new series called "Pesto Freebees". That means that there will be a bunch of free tracks that you can share without a bad conscience, even put them up on your webpage or myspace profile or wherever you wish - as long as you mention its origin (us that is). You can copy the embedded cover from the MP3 file. Within one year, loyal visitors of our page will find a nice compilation on their harddisk and/or MP3 players and maybe someone will put them in a mix also. Winking

PestoMix 003 by Zorz Post
PestoCast150x150
Here's PestoMix 003, this time coming from Zorz Post of Low Profile Bookings.

Low Profile Bookings, run by Zorz and his buddy Nick, are based in Kozani which lies in northern Greece, approx. one good hour by car from Thessaloniki. Georgios, as his real name is, is closely connected with the La Palma venue in Kozani that has seen guests from all over such as M.a.n.d.y., Terry Francis, Kevin Yost or lately Soda Inc. Zorz is known to provide excellent warmups but also has a residency in Kozani.

We're pretty sure you will enjoy his soothing blend of deep and groovy TechHouse, sexy Chicago body music and some electronic-influenced stuff that still sticks to an irresistable hip-shaking impulse (maybe it's also because spring is close). Here's the tracklist:

01. Satoshi Fumi - Talkin 2 U [Force Tracks]
02. Dennis DeSantis - Five Minutes, Today, Forever (Dennis DeSantis Remix) [Third Ear]
03. Kerri Chandler - Downtown (Dark Mix) [Downtown161.com]
04. Franck Roger Feat Jovonn - Remember (Instrumental) [Real Tone]
05. Leon Louder - Say Five [Uma Us]
06. Special Interest - Outlaw [Guesthouse Music]

PestoMix 001 by Babak Shayan
PestoCast150x150
Due to problems with our webspace provider, we had to publish the PestoMix 001 a bit later than promised. Anyways, enjoy the very first issue of our monthly guest DJ mix.

The first PestoMix comes from Babak Shayan, head honcho of Cologne's Shayan-Music. Babak will release Pesto 005 by end of January 2007. That's the reason we feature him here as a DJ.

Some of you might know the Bar1 compilation series that are digging in deeper grounds - this is mainly meant to serve another purpose. This mix is exactly right to get ready to go out, enjoy a sunny day with some nice clubby tunes or just get over the holiday season with some excellent House tunes on your iPod. Discover the driving side of Babak Shayan as a DJ.

Pesto 005 by Babak Shayan - Azadi will be available through all major download stores by end of January 2007.
For more details, check back here or and/or subscribe to our RSS feed!

We are sorry for being unable to supply you with a tracklist yet. Babak just gave us his mix immediately before he left for two Ukraine gigs. The final tracklist for this mix will be posted in brief as soon as Babak is back from the holiday season. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Happy holidays from your Pesto Music crew!
