DJ Jun – Reggae Love III

Welcome to the new home of DJJun.com!!  I’ve joined forces with my man Sawtay once again to develop Invisible-Friends.com, which is a community based site that hosts DJ Jun, CR8APES, DJ Sawtay, Adrian Hayles and Behind the Front Visual Art Studio.  We’ve been working hard trying to get this new site up and running and will be adding plenty of new mixes and content in the near future so we hope you enjoy it and come back often.

To kick things off at the new site, I present to you the next installment of Reggae Love; Part III.  I’ve had many requests for this ever since Part II dropped in 2008, and what better time to drop a reggae mix than the start of summer.  Seen?  So expect to hear some of my favorite deep Roots, dubbed out Disco mixes, early Dancehall and chilled out Reggae Soul chunes all recorded from original vinyl straight out of the vault.  Love Reggae?  Reggae Love for rills.

If you haven’t already, please subscribe to my podcast to be automatically notified of new mixes and upcoming events.  This podcast link is different from the previous one at the old site so please make sure you have it updated.  Also, if you like what you hear or want more information on songs or artists, feel free to use the new comments section or email me at djjun(at)invisible-friends.com.  Thanks for stopping by the new site.

Peace & Love, Jun

Back in 2009, we had the pleasure of posting Disc 1 of Andy Capp’s ‘Bang the Party!’ mix at CR8Apes.com and I know I promised to post up the other half at a later date, but I’ve totally been sitting on the second disc enjoying it all to myself. I personally can’t get enough of this mix and I apologize for keeping it from you, so to make it up to you this is what we’re going to do… Not only are we posting up the second disc for you to enjoy, but we’re also pretty excited to announce that he’ll be joining us to spin at our launch party at Behind the Front Studio on Saturday, May 8th alongside his other Gang of Two member, Rod Skimmins and host/dj extraordinaire, Pooyan.

As you probably know, these guys have been keeping things hot at their successful BANG THE PARTY! nights, so you know this party’s going to be completely off the hook. And, as always, no cover and BYOB at one of the most unique venues in downtown Toronto. We hope to see you there.

Launch Party info -> Invisible-Friends Launch Party w/ BANG THE PARTY!

DJ Jun – Sesión de Alma

Life has been keeping me insanely busy these days but I finally made some time to go through the crates and put together a new mix. I dropped the needle on Soundway’s latest Little Francisco Greaves’ Panamanian 45 and the mix flowed from there, all the way to Africa and back again to the Americas. ‘Sesión de Alma’ is a tropical funk, latin jazz and soul session designed to keep you warm in these long wintery months.

Tracklist:

Little Francisco Greaves – Moving Grooving (Soundway)
Fela Ransome Kuti and his Koola Lobitos – Olulufe (Klimt)
Matata – Talkin’ Talkin’ (Makossa)
Theadora Ifudu – Four in a Tangle (Theagart)
Quantic and his Combo Barbaro – Enyere Kumbara (Tru Thoughts)
Tito Rodriguez – Descarga Cachao (West Side Latino)
Louis Perez & the Peruvian Persuasions – Que Se Sepa (Killer Funk)
Kako’s New York After Hours Orchestra – Vitamina (Alegre)
Greenwood Rhythm Coalition – Salsa Verde (NYC trust)
Paper Plane Project – Welcome to Brazil (Cardboard City Records)
Bronx River Parkway – El Resbalon (Truth & Soul)
Har-You Percussion Group – Welcome to the Party (Jazzman)
Randy Carlos and his Orchestra – Mambo Silvado (Fiesta)
