I’ve had a deep and abiding love for the music and mixing of Thefft. As he is making his NYC debut tonight (for free, no less – details HERE), I decided to compile a playlist of all the Thefft mixes on mixcloud. There’s something very addicting about his style; a delicious mixture of jazz-infused techno, 2-step and a slyly swung house grooves that makes me want to listen to his stuff over and over again.
Just hit play below, and yr good for about the next 8 hours.
If yr feelin this then go see him at Le Poisson Rouge tonight. It’s FREE, all the info is RIGHT HERE. Show starts at 10, and is a super stacked lineup – Policy, Hirshi, Juakali, Nihal and Knomad all play as well. SEE YOU ON THE FLOOR!
Brilliant future funk mix from B.Bravo, who we’ve posted here before. Starts with some mellow, syrupy synth funk before moving into some funk-inspired bass music, some sultry Snoop Dogg. Finishing with infectiously funky house from Jimmy Edgar, Zed Bias and Disclosure’s immaculate Jessie Ware remix. This whole mix positively drips with swagger. B.Bravo is a
Really loving this mix of some soulful house (tho not soul-house, per se) and techno stuff from Policy, in advance of his appearance Thursday at OnTheSly. Seriously smooth mix here, I could listen to this on repeat all day. Policy isn’t just a great DJ – he’s also an excellent producer, with several releases on the always-relevant Rush Hour Records.
If yr feelin this, then you should go see him play THIS Thursday at OnTheSly. The lineup is ridiculously stacked with talent, the vibe is always friendly, and it’s FREEEEEEEEEE. No cover, no excuse, as they say.
Also worth checking out his recent mix for DJBroadcast, which I’ve embedded below. Similar vibes as first mix, initially, then the middle of the mix veers deeper into techno. Comes back around to more classic house/electro vibes and finished with some lovely future bass.

Just wanna give a massive shout out to the fine folks at Turrbotax and Discovery for bringing out Andrés aka DJ Dez on Saturday. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a DJ that good. 2 tracks in, I realized I was putty in his hands. FLAWLESS mixing, inspired selections, perfect pacing, some exquisitely tasteful scratching, all in the pursuit of a higher groove. And oh boy did we find it. Walked out of there feeling just ELATED.
Anyway, I’ve had these jams on loop pretty much since I got home that night, reliving the glory. You know it was a good show when yr still basking in the glow 2 days later.
Fourty seven and a half minutes of heavy partybass from the Don of dat shit, AC Slater. An expert brew of dirty, fidgety electro, some very rough n bashy UK Funky, and some very tasty dubstep.
If yr feelin this, then GO SEE HIM with Style of Eye this friday at Webster Hall. Here’s all the event infos, make sure to RSVP for $5 admission!
