DJ Gilb R is one of the best French djs. First involved in hip hop, then house and drum & bass, Gilb R has just finished his first album “Puzzle” with I Cube, under the name Château Flight (and you can hear some of it in ths set !). Always exploring new directions, but not in the usual way. This mix made especially for Wsound just fits perfectly a summer afternoon. And we all know you can find summertime in your mind whenever.

New mix from Rednose Distrikt ... Infos to follow and at Rush Hour if you can't wait ...
I Cube explains in his interview for Wsound that he grew up with no television at home, and so he listened to a lot of radio. And that should give a new perspective on his futuristic soundscapes (his last musical trip is called “3”, out on the excellent Versatile label). This mix with its suggested bits of atmosphere catched here and there is not for hard workers. It will make you feel lazy. So take your time…

It's hard to say it all, Dego has done so much in electronic music. The junglist sound, at first, then the broken beat scene which he initiated. The new 4 Hero album, "Creating Patterns", is out now on Talkin Loud. This mix is the last from the Versatile Family Party in Paris.

New kids on the Ultimate Dilemma block, Zero 7 make a very smooth music, with some groove going behind. This mix has impressed a lot of people : don't wait to listen to it. Gilles Peterson called them the english "Air" ...
Ewan Pearson also calls himself Maas or World of Apples. He's the most interesting artist to come from Soma, as his compilation "Small Change" and this burning tech house mix puts it.
The resident of the Loft in NYC back in the seventies has still a good sense of the floor, as he proved on his last trip in Paris. This mix was recorded at a Secret party on the Champs Elysees, at the end of last year. OK : he didnt actually sleep in the club but the magic is still there. As you can hear. And for more information, check the reviews of The Loft et The Loft 2.

The London based swiss-moroccan Alex Attias is one of Wsound favourite producers. And we might have waited a little while for this mix, but it was definetly worthit. The owner of the Visions label, offers a dynamic West London style mix, with half underground classics (like Victor Duplaix’s Manhood) and upcoming tracks, a cocktail of rare beats and spaced out grooves. Check out his last single “Plutonia” for another proof, and read his interview.
We all know the Dr Rockit, aka Mathhew Herbert, can make a kitchen sound funky. But as you will discover by listening to this mix made for the radio, which contains excerpts of his new compilation “Junior Doctor Rockit”, he’s actually come out of his house and is off on the streets. And armed (with his sampler) he can be real dangerous ! Also on Wsound, his interview and the review of his last album.
Josh Wink is an international recognized dj. This mix was recorded live in a party near Paris earlier this year and features a mixture of old and new tracks dancefloor orientated. Not the kind of stuff you would hear on Ovum, home of the true electro soul don King Britt. One for the techno freaks.
