In 5 Sets
The weekend has landed and all that matters now is clubs, drugs, pubs and parties. You've got 48 hours off the 9-5, it's time to unbutton your hustle and breathe vigor back into life. Whether it be through losing your soul on the dance floor or grooving to it, we have your soundtrack covered. The EARMILK Weekend Selector, an exclusive guest mix series where we invite the latest budding talent from behind the booth to usher you through all the boozie and jam. From your morning bedside to tonight's evening social, your weekend selector is here to fill a void of good taste and allow fresh connections to flow vicariously.
Over the course of the last 5 years or so the DJ has become a dying breed. The true selectors. From Derrick May to Seth Troxler to Erol Alkan. Sure they all spend their fair share of time in the studio but behind the decks is when they start to make magic. Today's scene is full of producers spewing pre packaged midi timed sets of their biggest 10 hits with some Beatport top 100 sprinkled on top. I understand the logic, people want to go see the composers of their favorite music at work. If you break it down this makes as much sense as preferring to watch Tchaikovsky attempt to play strings himself over listening to the New York Philharmonic perform his pieces. Neoteric is one of a handful of guys capable of both. Outside of maybe A-Trak I'd be hard pressed to come up with a name who can top Beatport charts one week and play L.A's infamous "Do-Over" party the next. Whether you want to chalk it up to Neoteric's years of experience or just him flat out having an ear for what works it's hard not to have a soft spot for what he does.
For those of you that know Neoteric from his big room Crookers collab "Springer" allow us to introduce you to his housey side. The mix encapsulates a wide scope of deep vibes from upswinging tech house bounces to disco influences to darker techno influenced tunes. Some artists to keep an eye on in the mix include Maceo Plex, Tim Green, Wehbba, Subb-an and Jordan Peak. If you were expecting upcoming Neoteric and Wax Motif tracks or a whole bunch of forthcoming promos from the many labels he works with you should know Neoteric isn't the type to self promote and chart his own stuff as worthy as it is. And that's why we love him. When you're done grabbing the mix check the link at the bottom to Neoteric's Facebook page for some free remixes of his including his reworks of The Rapture and Switch + Baxta.
