Vital Radio 136 – Hour 1: David Akermanis

March was a busy month. I’ve been in the studio working on my Speedboats & Big Explosions duo with DJ Endgame. We wrapped up another three track EP in March that will be out, along with Hazel Eyes, on System Recordings NYC. The new EP features two brand new numbers: Trouble Woman and Strange Justice. The third track on the EP is my track Menagie, which I am thrilled to FINALLY be releasing.

We’re still at it too – back in the lab this weekend working on a collaboration with vocalist Nicole Simone (Late Miss July) as well as something very housey along the Hed Kandi vein. All in all, @SBBEMusic is turning out really great and I’ve been pouring the majority of my musical energy in to that project. I’m going to start sharing more of that stuff here on my site.

One final thing… My ‘Spark/Aura’ EP is finally out on Silk music this Tuesday, April 5th! Definitely one of the better progressive EPs I’ve released under my name – very happy with how this one turned out. If you like what you hear, grab a copy from Beatport!

Vital Radio 119 – Hour 1: David Akermanis

| November 23rd, 2010 | No Comments »

I had a ton of fun putting this mix together for Vital Radio about two weeks ago.

I’ve been on a big time house binge lately and gearing up for my Speedboats and Big Explosions project with DJ Endgame. The two of us played our first official gig as a duo at the People Downtown Halloween jam here in Toronto a couple of weeks ago and the place was electric. In terms of bringing our two styles together in to one neat little package, we’re pretty much already there.

This mix is a pretty good representation of, at least a portion, of the Speedboats style. Often techy, and even more frequently kitschy and disco-influenced. From there to progressive and pop and back again.

01. Ramon Tapia – Organized (Original Mix)
02. Segio Fernandez – Playa Del Carmen (Original Club Mix)
03. Alex Kenji – Rabatiry (Original Mix)
04. Dan Castro – Eastern Ensemble (Original Mix)
05. Audio Junkies – Let’s Make a Party feat. Eyal Talmudi (Manuel De La Mare & Alex Kenji Remix)
06. Crazibiza – Everybody (Tommyboy Teque Remix)
07. Manuel De La Mare – Guess What (Original Mix)
08. Ivan Pica – Freak (Vocal Disco Mix)
09. Chris Lake & Marco Lys – The World Around Us (Extended Mix)
10. Benny Royal – Let’s Keep it Coming (Original Mix)
11. Fatoby Slim – Star 69 (Thomas Gold What The F**k Mix)
