(MP3 Podcast on T.I.M.E.C., 2011-02-19

You might have already heard about people re-editing disco tracks for augmented dancefloor pleasure. You might even have read the latest issue of Wax Poetics and know about Tom Moulton, originator of the remix, the breakdown section, and the 12-inch single vinyl format. You've also probably heard everything about 'Cosmic', 'Tropical' and 'Disco' music... Well, here's our global tribute to this scene. Let's get the party started.

Is the Link broken or dead?

Djouls Djouls ·  21 February 2011, 11:24

Links works fine!

Pig-Stepper Pig-Stepper ·  22 February 2011, 19:44

When i start the podcast it opens in a new browser window, it stops after a while because it does´nt get loaded fully. I think it stops before i get to listen to The Blackbyrds, thats what i mean with a not working link.
The download does´nt work either.
Thats a pitty!

Either you have a connection or browser problem, or it's my server that has problems with the number of people downloading this mix (2000 in 24h!!) that didn't let you finish your download... either way I'll send you a sendspace link to download this long in the making classic mix

Thanx a lot but please use this E-Mail adress

Merci pour ce mix et pour tous les autres.

Une remarque tout de même, il y a comme qu'y dirait un trou dans la tracklist et c'est pile mon morceau préféré, justement.

Il se trouve entre le « Brooklyn Creams » et le « Rock Creek Park », de 20:08 à 25:58.

Et heu… j'aimerai bien savoir qui c'est. Genre.

Djouls Djouls ·  28 February 2011, 22:19

Oops! Bien vu... En fait au dernier moment j'ai changé un track de place, c'est le Rim Kwaku Obeng And Kasa - Love Me For Real, que j'ai remonté dans la selection entre le Brooklyn Dreams et le Blackbyrds... (j'ai corrigé)

romain romain ·  01 March 2011, 08:36

Merci Djouls, c'est cool.
