One O Six

kaleidoscope // 1500-1700 28.05.12

bedroom disco

It is summer in the subcity studio, and the temperature sets the tone for the penultimate Kaleidoscope show this year. This episode boasts a half hour Trojan singles mix, fitting for, and inspired by, the glorious weather.

From heatwave to 'Hurricane', MS MR's new mesmerising track predicts great things to come for the Brooklyn based duo. Throughout the show, synthetic beats wrestle with dreamy vocals, allowing for a thoroughly positive feel. This really comes to the fore in a mini mix of Oli Slack, Kartell, and Hazy Mountains, thrown in purely to prompt the 'bedroom disco' effect.

Alongside fresh discoveries, remixes feature heavily. From St Etienne's take on Summer Camp's 'Losing My Mind' to the Talvin Singh remix of the late John Martyn's 'Sunshine's Better', all manage to uplift and refresh firm favourites. At the same time they channel a bittersweet nostalgia that often goes hand in hand with hazy summer days.
