Mix of the Day: Dr. Miette & Waxist “Soul Brothers”


Words via Dr. Miette & Waxist: “After many many hours of spinning records together at late nite gigs, Waxist Selecta and Dr Miette joined their efforts to elaborate this soul mixtape. Soul music has always been a musical link between the two DJs : they share a love for well-orchestred violins, languorous bass, suave voices and more globally a music coming from both heart and guts.

Dr Miette sent his first 15 min set to Waxist who listened, answered with 15 another minutes, and the back to back went on. Starting with deep-fried soul, drum-break based, the mixtape shifts towards hip-hopish-funkish soul and ends with cross over, modern soul inspired tunes. Oh yes and we played a French one, enjoy your listening, do not listen on laptop speakers please. As usual vinyls only, almost all original (at least for Waxist!). Special shout-outs to DJ Goodka who triggered the meeting of the two DJs in his deeply-regretted record shop.”
