Thanks to Dan Electro, Gma, Bernard Céleste, Bonzzaï, Roady and fellow bloggers.

Please check out the blog list on the right. There are some killer collectors (Global Groovers, Madrotter...) & and comp makers (Dream Weapons...) around keeping it real!

Things running a little slow around here with Catapulte crew fixing up houses and becoming fathers: happy times :)


  1. Congrats on your 50th! Yeah we too had big plans for our 100th DWP-mix and ended up compiling another C60 "with dope tunes from all over the place as usual". I don't think I've ever missed a mix and always find myself discovering a dozen new favorite tunes or more - and "Just As You Are" is no exception. Thanks for the music and thank you for the shoutout.

  2. A2 is from the second cassette put out by the Egyptian Sufi singer called 'Fouad Abdel Migied' in the 80's
    Disco Arabesquo helped out there to find out.
    I recommend checking their stuff.
