Les "mixdoctor" Adams

Les "mixdoctor" Adams - worked for DMC in the early years, but he is in business for almost 30!! During the late 1980's and early 1990's while working as a DJ in London Les was signed as a recording artist to the A&M record label as 'LA Mix'.
Today he host radioshow on Solar radio.
Mostly, he made mixes of funk and dance tracks, preticulary "beat-on-beat" mixing.

Swedish guy Sanny X began mixing early, back in 1979...he was DJ for DMC since beginnig, and his specialities were pop/rock stuff!!
Boy, he really knew how to rock a song!!!
You can`t believe that a rock song can be remixed?? Well, here is a playlist - see for yourself:

but for me, this remix is total madness:
Madonna - "Into the groove"


Paul is one of the logest serving DMC producer and his reputation goes back to his weird and a bit twisted "Sigue Sigue Sputmix" from 1986!!!
Today he is a memeber of "Ministry of Sound" label, but his remixes and mixes for DMC will remain timeless.

here you can get Sigue Sigue Sputmix:


who did not hear for great Ben?? His Grandmix series is already legenday. Only the best artists allow him do remix!! Whole list of remixes is quite long, so you better check his homepage:

DMC - disco mix club

Well, this was most important mixing club in the 80s...started in 1983, few DJs remixed and mixed stuff from top charts in a way nobody did before!
Soon they relese mixes on tapes...each month a new volume!!!

From 1984 their work was printed on vinyl!! First 1 LP, then 2!! By the end of 1989 3 LPs was released each month, availbale only to subsribed members - not sold in any music store!!
Soon a world DJ championship in London was organized. You should see all those skill guys, messing with turntables - all live performance!!!

From that time many DJs published their work...some names will be remembered forever: Ben Liebrand, Dakeyne, Dimitri, Steve Anderson, Les "mixdoctor" Adams, Sanny X, Bizzie Bee, duo The Commision...each work was a unique masterpiece of its own class.
and later I will present mixes from each and one of them!!


"Spacer" - who remembers this song...probably very few...but year 2000 swedish producer deside to stop years of silence and sampled melody from "Spacer" to "Crying at the discoteque"...result was remarkable...we got funky guitar from 80s with club beats from 90s!!!

8 years later I decide to make a tribute to both of these artists and make a is called: "Crying spacer"...check it out - and loud!!!
