// Funk Shuei & Bioniq //

Dialtone is one of those numerous great labels bubbling up in Mexico, dance music’s new hotbed of creativity. Many of the labels are from Mexico City, but Dialtone’s founders Alexis and Christian are from Cancun in the East (and on the beach). I think for that reason the label’s music is quite different –  less dark and more dancable. The label roster is led by the Dialtone bosses under the alias Funk Shuei, for this mix they teamed up with Monterrey’s prolific producer Alex Galvan aka Bioniq for a Dialtone label retrospective to give listeners a full picture of what’s going on down south.  – Sean-Michael Yoder

Episode 002, featuring an exclusive mix by Washington D.C. based dj/producer Mohamed Malouki (Jubilee)

// Jubilee //

I met Jubilee via a release he did earlier this year for Hidden Recordings called “Dopamine” which has a wicked remix by Noah Pred. Jubilee is launching his own label very soon called Motorcade Music. He hails from Washington DC and is associated with the Mnmlife crew and has regular residencies in DC as well as New York City. He made this mix for another publication but it never aired so it’s been sitting on my wife’s iPod for months. She mentioned to me one day how good it was and that had a nice East Coast flavor that we don’t get out here in Cali. The lightbulb went on and – voila! – the second installment of The Conduit. – Sean-Michael Yoder

// Bio //

Born in Casa Blanca, Morocco, Jubilee grew up listening to his father play instruments and old records. Ten years ago, Jubilee came to the U.S.A., bringing his culturally infused sense of rhythm, beats, and sounds to the streets of DC as a club promoter for Panorama. His interest in becoming a Dj started when he would watch the Djs play for 6 hours a crack, just watching every movement, learning. In 2001, Dj Alex Kelly was playing at DC’s former club, Spot.( one of Panorama’s weekly events ) Jubilee was watching him play until the Dj handed the headphones over . Stunned and feeling like a day-dream, Jubilee put on the headphones and started mixing. Daylight couldn’t come faster. As soon as he could, Jubilee went out and bought about ten records and asked Alex if i could open for him till he got to the club. Shortly after , he bought his first turntable set . Everyday, Jubilee would just play the records over and over and over again. Listening. Feeling the sound and making it work. Jubilee has been creating impressionable sounds over the past 2 years, gearing toward becoming one of the music up and coming artists. Between his live performances and unique DJ sets, Jubilee has created quite a following in DC, earning credibility with some of the industry’s top venues. Support has been a phenomenal instrument is generating Jubilee’s success. With pal Gabriel Rojas, and residency with Mnmlife Jubilee has put together events at venues Napoleon and Red Lounge premiering local and global talents and played with artist such as Josh Wink , Adultnapper , MR.C , Matthias Tanzmann… The more you follow, you’ll see it’s more than just music.

The CONDUIT // 001 – Android Cartel

For episode 001 , we’re getting things started off right with an incredible mix by two producers and djs from Los Angeles, Reagan Denius and Christopher Mohn (aka Android Cartel).

// Android Cartel //

I first caught wind of Android Cartel via Chris Fortier after their debut single dropped on his Fade imprint circa 2007. He was keen on them and I loved the release. I stalked them relentlessly for about a year and finally caught up with them for an interview in Big Shot Magazine. Reagan and Chris are great guys and we’ve remained friends ever since. During that time, I have been consistently blown away by the volume of their work (they’ve done releases for Steve Lawler, Louis Osbourne, and Quivver’s labels already not to mention the ones for their own newly launched label, Sketchbook) but also the quality. They’ve finally answered the age-old question, is there still life in progressive house post-Sasha & Digweed? It is a resounding “YES!” and this exclusive mix goes a long way to proving it with rich melodies, subtle shifts in energy, and a dark, techy edge lurking just beneath the surface. Late nights were made for this. – Sean-Michael Yoder
