Mickey is no stranger to dance music. Hailing from Belgium, he has residency at the infamous Libertine Supersport, surrounded by legends such as The Magician, Mustang, and Aeroplane. He’s definitely a contributing factor to Belgium’s musical excellence. I have seen his sets, and for lack of better words, I have been absolutely blown away. If you’re one of the lucky few that happens to catch one, be prepared to loose control of your extremities and burn holes in the soles of your Chuck Taylor’s. The sound mixes golden elements from the past, then spices them up into a perfect groove & funk, Mickey style. Flavours tease the pallet consisting of a strong drum kick, bouncy chords, and precision production. He’s done remixes for the likes of Tyson, Beni, Headman, Punks Jump Up, and Housse De Racket.

Mickey has graced us with his newest single from smile recordings ‘Love For Sale’ ft. vocals from Monarchy. It’s quite magical to say the least. Give her a listen!

GDD :Where are you from & How has that influenced your music? How do you self-describe your musical style / taste?
I’m from Belgium more precisely from Brussels. Its where my studio is. The city influences me by feeling good and at home at the same time. We have a large musical culture over here.

When it comes to my music, i always try to combine big liner notes and a groove full of percussion, synth’s, piano’s and strings. Sometimes i even play extra guitar riffs on top. The goal for me is to make it the way i want to hear it myself on the radio.

GDD: How does your equipment differ from your onstage gear to what you use in the studio?
Very different! My studio gears are all instruments. On stage i’m playing live with Record Effects and 2 x CDJ 1000 & Mixing table.

GDD: Describe your perfect venue down, setting, and vibe down to the littlest detail.
I really enjoy playing close to the sea, what happened to me a couple of weeks ago in Australia, the response of the people is completely different. After your finished you can refresh yourself in the water en get a cool beer on top! These kind of venues are rare in Europe, especially in Belgium.

GDD: How do you go about picking tracks you’d like to remix?
Until now, it was always on request. But i need to chase more the tracks i like, i will try my luck in the coming weeks : )

GDD: What are your 5 favorite tracks play out right now?
Miguel Migs – Tonight (Fingerman Re-Poke)
Todd Terje – Snooze 4 Love (Original Mix)
Jonas Rathsman – Tobago
Maceo Plex – Falling (Original Mix)
Azealia Banks -212

GDD: What are 5 artists we need to keep our ears open for? ( all from Belgium ).

Montevideo
ATTari
Mustang
Great Mountain fire

GDD: What does the year of 2012 hold for the great Mickey?
My new single featuring Monarchy on Smile Recordings, the release of some unreleased remixes and a bunch of new tracks and collaborations!

GDD: And finally, because everyone wants to know, when will we finally see ‘Punks jump Up – Mr Overtime (Mickey Remix)’?
They promised that it will see the daylight in march 2012 … But ask to the Punks buddy’s yourself : )


This wave may be the most perfect to date. Refreshing, flowing, and made of your favorite lager. Get loose, grab your honey bunny, and take tomorrow off.

“The waves ≠ raves consists of hand-picked gems that inspire us, tickling and tempting our creative juices. Some are old, some are new, but it is what we are listening to now. They are groovey, flowing, and sun-kissed just like that perfect wave. They are uplifting and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. They sound the best with a babe in one hand, a cold brewski in the other, and the sand beneath your feet. Stay Dreamy.”

The Dirt is back in action again this week with submissions from the first 2 members of Gotta Dance Dirty, jonahberry and Tropicool (aka Dr. Schlongo, aka Daddy O’Climax, aka David LaMelza). We’ve put together 10 great tracks, new and old, for your listening pleasure, so kick back, relax, and enjoy these tasty tunes with a tall frosty IPA in one hand and a naughty school girl in the other.

DARK GROOVES
• Donovans – FX1 (Canblaster & Panteros666 Remix) √+
Parisian duo, Donovans, released their FX1 EP in early June on Cheap Thrills, equipped with a fantastic remix from Rynecologist and this one from Canblaster and Panteros666. I just can’t get enough of the unique sound of Canblaster. Make sure to pick up his Totem EP out on Marble now.

SEXY GROOVES
• Brenmar – Taking It Down (Original Mix) [Beatport] √++
Now this track was released at the end of last year, but its inclusion in ///BONES’ most recent Summer Mix has invoked a revival of this song for me. Brenmar is also one of my top producers, as his sound meshes the aggressiveness of hip hop with the smooth sensibilities of great House music. Big fan.

BANGING TECHNO
• Joachim Garraud – Bang Bang (Dalcan Rmx) √+
This is a throbbing remix from French producer, Dalcan, off of Joachim Garraud‘s most recent EP, Bang Bang. The legendary DJ/producer has had an extremely busy spring and summer, releasing a full lenth album, 3 EPs, a release on Toolroom‘s Ibiza 2011 compilation, and seminal sets at Ultra Music Festival and Coachella. The Frenchman will also be playing live at Lollapalooza in a collaborative set with the Jane’s Addiction rocker, Perry Farrell. Wow.

DISCO VIBES
• MyKill – Falling (Original Mix) √+
MyKill is a DJ from San Francisco that makes some fantastic funky ass disco. I actually found this track on our good friend Nate’s blog a while back and got into it again just in time for summer. Head on over to MyKill’s Soundcloud for some more great groovin’ goodies.

FUNKY ELECTRONICA
• The 2 Bears – In My Brain Is Like A Computer (Telling Me What To Do) (Original Mix) [Beatport] √++
Raf Rundell and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard are The 2 Bears. They make music and they wear bear costumes. Both are fantastic. Give this one a listen from their latest EP, Bear Hug.

Jonah’s Zip

Foreword from Tropicool:
These tunes are meant to make you infectiously dance in a unstoppable sex-craved fashion. Handle with care; both your marbles and your lady friend(s).  Stay horny my friends. (all are check plusses DUH!)

Tribal Disco
• Shindu – Happy House (Herr Styler Remix)
I was first captivated by the original in the Magician’s Magic Tape 11, only to then learn about the stellar remix package.  Herr Styler adds a very tropicool vibe showcasing tribal drums, flutes, and cowbells nestled atop a funky keys riff.  This song never ceases to make me smile, take off my clothes, or eat raw meat.  It’s the opening tune to Tropicool’s “A Turd in the Punch Bowl” mix.

Tropical Disco Funk
• Beni – It’s a Bubble (Round Table Knights Remix)
Everything we love from Round Table Knights has been eclipsed by their newest remix of Beni‘s “It’s a Bubble”.  Steel drums, Funky bubble sounds, and an infectious rhythm disco that leads me to believe I have restless leg syndrome.  Get creepy, and don’t go home at night.  ”Hey street walker!”

Sexy Funky House
• Telonius – Last Night (Extended Club Version)
Telonius is a very sexual creature.  Listen to the lyrics; live the music video.  He has inseminated an incredible single here that’s dancefloor, afterhours, and bedroom ready, all hot and bothered.  Fucking element of sexy house, funk, and disco all in one has truly created an infectious, jean-tightening, jam!

Nudisco Glory
• Mighty Mouse – Between the Pavement and the Stars (Edwin Van Cleef Remix)
We can always expect pure genius when a song drops under the knife of Edwin Van Cleef or is presented live by the Mightiest of the Mouses.  These 2 juggernauts have come together to transform like Megatron and create one Decepticon ass-kicking tune. Euphoric yet groovy, very full bodied.  Includes lyrics.  Pregnant woman should not consume this beverage.

Sexy Feel-Good Funk
• Toro Y Moi – Still Sound (Voodoo Bear Remix)
I first heard this jam in the Mustang June Mix, and as the corners of my mouth began to curl up in utter happiness, the funky stings hit and I lifted out of my seat.  What a glorious feel-good song.  Summer daze, cold beers, and the hot curves of your buddy’s sister.  Truly a song of the senses; Get amongst it!

David’s Zip

jonahberry & Tropicool

Tropicool, radicool, sun-kissed nation vibration. Coconuts and mindtai’s. Heads in the clouds and your feet in the water. Babes in bikini’s, cool pool parties, and crackin’ freshies at the beach with your toes in the sand. Which brings me to my next point. Why don’t you sexy ladies out there wear the 80′s retro thong bikinis arching high above your thighs, that truely accentuate those dirty dancin’ stems of yours?  Bring it back, please, we beg you.

Here’s the tenth installment of Waves ≠ Raves, and might actually be my favorite compilation of the bunch. So be rad, don’t tell dad, and do the jungle boogie.

“The waves ≠ raves consists of hand-picked gems that inspire us, tickling and tempting our creative juices. Some are old, some are new, but it is what we are listening to now.
