Saturday Mixtape – Joel Smiel

Joel Smiel and Dj Junior are Malmö’s answer to Stockholm’s Stureplansmafia. Well, since everything in Malmö is far more laidback, less commercial and less shallow, same goes to these guys. As an observant clubber you can spot this Chip’n’Dale-like duo behind the mixer at one of the comercial houseclubs in Malmö: Etagé, Buddha Lounge, Crown, Skeppsbron.

Ocasionally they lock themselves in the studio. And not without a reason. Their latest remix/mashup on Richard Grey‘s Thriller and I shot the sheriff, got support from Richard himself and will be released on Pacha Records later this month. Under the longest name ever in the history of house: Richard Grey – Thrilling the Deputy (Junior and Smiel Club Dub). Too commercial for my taste, but a release on Pacha will get you far in the dj world.

Anyway, here is the mixtape:

It’s Joel and execpt for having a cool hoody he’s live mashing Prydas Läget? with Evough with my reflection acappella on top. That’s what I call Dj-skills. I’ve got better crowd control though =P


P.S. A bonus containing two cool Joel Smiel tracks – Savannah and Gifts for Me is hidden in the comments. Great stuff!
