PestoMix 017 by Nestora

PestoCast150x150
Referring to yesterday's post, I'd like to drop a few words on long lasting qualities of DJ mixes. Today's PestoMix by Nestora, hailing from Athens, Greece is one such mix - no wonder, it's a PestoMix, indeed.

In all fairness, I have to admit that I received it back in January already and wondered if it may sound dated or would have a certain winter feeling attached to it. After having listened a couple of times during the past few days, I noticed that my doubts were completely pointless: sunny and warm days in Cologne, Caipirinha tasting good again (for me, it doesn't during the cold winter months) and this PestoMix went together pretty well. After writing a short message to Nestora on Facebook, he felt the same way - release the mix because the vibe is great regardless of the season outside.

Nestora is quite new to the Deep House family as a producer, the labels he released on since 2008 are all highly reputated though and belong to what I'd say is the top notch of underground deepness (and good Pesto friends as well): Disclosure Project Recordings, Acryl, Etoka, Cabrio are all names that should ring some bell if you're a frequent visitor here. Nestora definitely has a signature sound which becomes apparent when browsing through his tracks on SoundCloud or his releases on Beatport. I sincerely hope to add him to the Pesto roster one day as well but that depends on me receiving a demo and replying on time before another label signed it ;)

Jon Silva remixes coming your way!

jonsilva_reflect
After last year's summer of remixes (pt. 1 and pt. 2) was quite successful for Jon Silva, this year is not any worse.
Jon has been asked to remix tunes by Scope on Urban Torque, Andy Sant on Detroit's Kolour Recordings, Orlando Vaughan on Duff Note, Aki-Tek on Red King/Ministry of Sound and Sebastian Davidson on both New York City's Glideslope and our neighbours Clubstar.

Some of those mixes are already finished (despite some took ages - sorry Ateka), some are work in progress. As soon as these releases will be available, we will let you know and provide further information. So long, please find out more about these excellent artists and labels by clicking the links - we're sure you like their stuff!
