Classic Frankie Knuckles (And Others) Talks 1989 House Music [Video]


1989 may have seen a thriving electronic music underground but it was hardly a heyday for its media coverage.

With that, the 1989 music documentary featured below, as aired by Canadian music network MuchMusic, was a very early look at the burgeoning scene. The 27 minute video features an extended interview with founding father Frankie Knuckles, as well as house music pioneers Todd Terry, CeCe Rogers, Ten City and Byron Stingly.

Watch heavy bass, heavy drums, and tribal rhythms explained against a backdrop of everything from acid house to techno and the institutions that housed them. If this piece of required education peaks your interest for more, you can also find our list of the best (free) dance music documentaries available on the web.

Homeland Star Claire Danes Explaining Techno On Ellen DeGeneres


Imagine explaining the techno scene to your mom and dad for the first time and realising they just don’t get it. This is how Hollywood star Claire Danes (the female lead in Homeland, Romeo & Juliet) was commenting on her new hobby in Berlin to talkshow host Ellen DeGeneres. Gladly, while showing what good and bad techno means, she took Berlin’s clubbing haven Berghain as a reference to all that is good about it.

Apparently the star was, who “got in through a guy who knows the owner”, introduces to the way people party in the techno scene. And even despite her clumsy “Girl-Next-Door” dance moves, Claire called it a blast.

Danes said she had “acute anxiety” and didn’t know what to expect, but described Berghain as “the best place on earth”. Later, when Ellen hands her a bag to Claire to carry her son Cyrus, the video becomes basically unwatchable for its awkwardness.

Mix #171 by Jay Shepheard


A UK-born, Berlin based producer and DJ already made his way through, debuting in 2007 and immediately scoring nominations for best Deep House act artist in the Beatport awards and hasn’t stopped immersing all his talents into dance music since. For our next mix installation, Jay Shepheard presented us with a mix of exclusively original tracks. 

Now established as a well recognised staple of the genres, Jay earned his ear for the past and the eye for the future during seven years working at a UK online vinyl store Juno Records. Since his robust start in 2007, he has been touring everywhere from Australia to US as a DJ and presenting his productions in the meantime. His immersion into the dance scene, aside touring and producing his own tracks is witnessed by establishing his own label Retrofit, not to mention Retrofit label events already being planned at London’s Fabric and Berlin’s Watergate and Badaboom Paris.

Talking about his releases, on cannot avoid mentioning his two signature sounding albums, Home & Garden and Seeing Sound released in 2013 and 2014 respectively. He came in strong with his first one, Home & Garden, taking his signature sound out of the club and into the home listening experience getting acclaims from critics and both underground and mainstream names within the industry, Axel Boman, Dense & Pika, Severino, Hot Since 82, Jackmaster and Catz N’ Dogz to name a few.

While Home & Garden offered a soundtrack for setting the perfect afterparty mood, his second long playing project Seeing Sound, is a collection of the right party starting tracks. Working on the albums, Jay had the chance to collaborate along sides other artists including (the late great) Martin Dawson, Iron Curtis, Matthew Burton, Locked Groove, Art Of Tones, Mic Newman, Jaques Renualt and Session Victim.

Jay Shepheard works on labels including Compost, Futureboogie, Freerange, Pets Recordings, Buzzin Fly and many others.

Watch The Trailer For Upcoming Daft Punk Documentary

daft punk documentary

Even though there are near decades in between their releases, Daft Punk never cease to grab the full attention of both media and the music industry with every new year. Their latest successful attempt to recapture the global spotlight – just after taking it earlier this summer with the release of french flick ‘Eden’ which loosely revolved around the enigmatic French musical phenomenon – comes in the form of a soon to be released documentary called ‘Daft Punk Unchained’. Distributor BBC Worldwide just released the first trailer, which can be viewed below. 

Kanye West: “Who revolutionised dance music the most? [..] Daft Punk”

Although rather vague, the trailer’s content allows the viewer get a hint of what the documentary will entail: existing and never before shown footage and interviews with ‘the robots’ and interviews with colleagues and industry people whom they have worked closely with, like Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Nile Rodgers, and songwriter Paul Williams.

One fragment shows us Kanye West giving the answer to his own question: “Who revolutionised dance music the most? [..] Daft Punk”. I don’t know about you, but these 40 seconds were enough to spark my interest.

Medsound – Enjoy Yourself [Spa In Disco]


On October 2nd Barcelona’s Medsound will release his newest future-disco package on Spa In Disco to kick off the autumn in synthwave style… On the seventh outing for the label based in the Balearic Islands of Spain, Medsound delivers three dazzling themes for the dance floor. The title track Enjoy Yourself sets the mood of the EP with subtle whispers and synth echos over expanding arpeggios and uptempo drums. Make It Bright is a beautiful builder where twinkling synthesizers shake hands with dreamy chords and low pitched vocal lulling. Rounding out the EP, the tempo picks up for five mesmerizing minutes with utopian pads and a cheery clav line in the infectious percussion ensemble of Migjorn.
