LowEnd91 Discogs Mix 79 – Marcel Vogel

Discogs Mix 79 comes from Marcel Vogel – DJ, producer, and head of the Amsterdam-based Lumberjacks In Hell and Intimate Friends labels. Click play in the player above to listen to the expertly crafted live mix, and peep his story and the tracklist below:

One of my earliest influences as a DJ and record collector was Journeys By DJ: Coldcut – 70 Minutes Of Madness. Naturally, that led to digging into the early DJ Food Jazz Breaks. That was over 20 years ago. From there, I have delved into House and later into Disco and Funk. Around 2004, Madvillainy re-sparked my interest in Hip Hop and Rap. I suppose living in Berlin from 2003 to 2007 and being exposed to Jazzanova and their extended circles exposed me to somewhat of a more eclectic approach of Djing, combining Nu Jazz and breaks and everything that’s available from the palette of dance music. To round it out, my relocation to Amsterdam in 2010 was my most recent step of evolution as a collector and DJ.

Now is a time where every DJ seems to be able to bang it out and play every aspect of rare leftfield music at the same time. The development of the Internet, the availability of music without limits, and the possibilities of CDJs and USB sticks made it so much more interesting and rewarding to be part of the nightlife and share musical stories with the world. In 2019 every Doner Kebab vendor, every shoe store, and every bar has access to the coolest Spotify list and the craziest mixes on SoundCloud and Mixcloud. The unheard is being unearthed at a much faster pace. Common nerd-knowledge is shared on a global level like viruses in 12 Monkeys. Youtube and Boiler Room and online radio stations can’t keep any secrets for long. It’s wonderful, it’s competitive, and it creates forms of unity and belonging.

I suppose we have been dreaming of this; to be pulled down a rabbit hole of music that doesn’t know any limits or borders. That was the promise when I started to buy records and it has been fulfilled beyond my wildest dreams. Maybe we’ll encounter a sort of hangover at some point, but at the moment it looks like we’ll just keep rediscovering only madder and madder forgotten tunes from all corners of the world. And this is what this mix is about. Heritage, belonging, unity.

My family and my bonds have been created in our common passion for this sort of music. Call it freestyle if you want. Call it Disco. Or rare groove. Most days I don’t have a name for it. But it is still exciting and it makes me get up every day and do my research. Online and in the record stores. Who knew there was seemingly no end to it?

This is a live recording from Marcel Vogel’s all nighter with Stevie Wonderland in December 2018. A healthy mix between House and Disco to keep the dance floor moving.

The iconic Blue Note label will celebrate its milestone 80th birthday in 2019, with a year-long spree of activity including two major vinyl-led release campaigns, alongside new artist albums, live dates and film screenings.

Founded in 1939 by Francis Wolff and Alfred Lion, the label’s catalogue is one of the most celebrated and sought after in jazz history. Extraordinarily, following the retirement of its long-time boss Bruce Lundvall in 2015, its future could have been in jeopardy. Current president, Don Was, revealed in a recent interview with Forbes magazine: “There was some talk about making it a website that just sold catalogue and Blue Note t-shirts.”

This was before Was serendipitously had a breakfast meeting with Capital Records President Dan MacCarroll, who, following Was’ suggestion that Capital sign Gregory Porter, offered him the Blue Note role. Taking the helm since 2012, Was has ushered in a fresh approach embracing the label’s illustrious past, while creating a vital, forward-looking present. He’s spearheading the 80th anniversary year with the Tone Poet 180gm Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series, which will initially include 18 titles spanning albums by Hank Mobley and Cassandra Wilson, as well as 36 titles in a Blue Note 80 series of mid-price 140gm vinyl releases with themes such as Blue Note Debuts, Rare Grooves, Great Reid Miles Covers, Blue Note Live and Drummer Leaders.

Plans also include festival showings and a theatrical run (plus a DVD release) for Sophie Huber’s film Blue Note Records: Beyond The Notes. There will also be special programming for the Blue Note at Sea Cruises, plus a US autumn tour for a Blue Note 80 triple bill featuring emerging stars Kandace Springs and James Francies, alongside the newly-signed sax firebrand James Carter
