• SESSION 809: BLESS UP 01.27.11

    Mixed By Praveen Sharma,Liondub,Udachi&Brandwan

    “Bless Up!”
    On the fifth day he created bass, then he took an Amen break. And so it was, that on Thursdays the high priests of low frequency would gather at the record store in Brooklyn to perform the ancient rites of the turntable… It is in this solemn spirit of praise to all that rumbles the jungle that the cult we call halcyon presents our latest, soon to be habitual ritual, Bless Up! – Thursdays from 6-9pm at halcyon the shop and broadcast live on dailysession.com. Funky monks take note, Bless Up! is three hours of anything-but-silent devotion to the woofer ripping trinity of Drum and Bass, Dubstep and Dub Reggae. Our own pied pontiff, Liondub administers the wax sacraments alongside a rotating cast of cardinals representing NYC’s holiest DJ diocese. Visiting saints make miraculous appearances and as always, there’s no tithe at the door and plenty of alms for the poor, so you can save while being saved.
    Bless Up with us on Facebook!

  • SESSION 807: SLOW DISCO SATURDAYS 12.04.10

    Mixed by Matthew Kyle, Soho808 & Crystamafia

    Matthew Kyle

    Matthew Kyle (M.K.) loves whiskey, cats and disco – just our kind of guy. The New York-based DJ turned producer only started dabbling in music-making eight months ago and he’s already all the buzz with two hot releases on Berlin’s vinyl-only disco edit imprint, Dikso under his former monikers NoRequests and byDesign. Although still a ripe talent, Kyle has already carved out a trademark style that straddles between head-bobbing boogie, nusoul and downbeat disco. The Dikso star gets crafty with his edits and reworks by splicing up and pitching down old gems and classics by Al Green, the Bee Gees, Chaka Khan, Biggie and more timeless artits, sometimes even overlapping their tunes into one midtempo groover. Come early to hear M.K. warm up the afternoon with some super slow disco soul…

    Soho808

    Soho808 is Nathaniel Jay and Dave Robertson, two friends who met randomly at a dirty afterhours boat party and realized they shared an affinity for house music that runs high on quality and low on the BPM. They quickly took to Robertson’s Soho studio to begin making music of their own, turning out deep, slow tracks such as their first release “From New York with Love” (out now on Stupendous Music), their own remix of Soul II Soul’s 90s classic, “Back to Life”, with more tracks and other projects in the pipeline. Both DJs on their own in the past; their DJ sets together reflect the music they make; pitched down party music with soul.

Each month’s session will feature a special guest DJ laying down 3 hours of tempo challenged choons, from dawdling cosmic Disco to lazy low-slung Funk and lead-footed Balaeric burners.
