PestoMix 012 by Nick Fay

If you're a DeepHouse-only person, please ignore this post and the attached DJ mix. PestoMix 012 by Nick Fay is far from deep - it's bouncing, shaking, sexy, clubby and will make you go oooh. If you don't feel like shaking your pelvis after approx. 3mins or at around 15:38 latest, please see a doctor - something is probably very wrong with you.

Nick Fay is a young talent based in Strumica, Macedonia/FYROM. When Jon Silva played the "Select" venue in Strumica on his 5-weeks tour all over the Balkans, he had the great pleasure to meet Nick there and with the help of Jovan Gligorov of RDC in Sofia, Bulgaria a deeper connection was established. Jon remixed Nick Fay's "Progression", a release on USB (Underground Sound of Bulgaria), Nick started working on a remix for Fady Ferraye's "Amman" single on Pesto and the two were sending lots of messages on Facebook, sharing DJ mixes and tracks. It was inevitable that Nick Fay had to be a guest on our PestoMix series and we're more than happy to present you this awesome DJ mix.

Enjoy pure summer madness - we've been listening to this mix all afternoon and it brought us back the sweaty summer vibe, even though it's rainy, grey and cold in Cologne today (as usual).

Rucyl's "Love In War" on Islands Vol. 05 compilation

The "Islands" CD series is a cooperation between Big City Beats and King Kamehameha Beach and has succeeded not only to follow the success of other Eivissa-centered compilations but to reach even further.

King Kamehameha in Frankfurt was elected "Germany's most beautiful Open Air Venue" by the Cosmopolitan - Big City Beats have regular shows on Big FM, one of Germany's leading FMs for Black Music and House.

The story of this compilation is made up of a careful track selection seeking for timeless DeepHouse classics rather than actual Club Hits, the excellent packing design, the authentic island vibe when you miss dancing in the sunset and an excellent DJ mix by Steve Blunt (resident of King Kamehameha). No wonder this series made it into the german compilation charts before and Vol. 05 was presented as Hot Pick on Germany's Pro7 TV network.

We're proud that Rucyl's "Love In War (Pete Gust's KID Remix)" made it onto this piece of art and enjoys the appropriate company of Masters at Work, Ralf Gum, Tiger Stripes, Scope and Spirit Chaser to name but a few.
