I'm hyped to be hosting a new mix Zaf Zafsmusic tailor made for Secret Rendezvous. He came through with some seriously DEEP Disco, Blue Eyed Soul, Gospel and more beautiful jams to keep your head bopping along, and keep you coming back for more. Download "Free & Easy" now by clicking HERE.
For those of you that may not already know Zaf, he may be behind some of your favorite rare Disco and Soul compilations, runs a specialty vinyl shop on www.zafsmusic.com, and is certainly well known to the clientele of UK record shop Reckless Records in SOHO where he was a buyer, and eventually part owner from 1988-2006.
Check some of the credentials:
When it comes to compilations, Zaf provided both the records and liner notes for the popular P&P Records Compilations fronted by Danny Krivit, Keb Darge and Kenny Dope, and is also behind one of my favorite recent compilations on BBE "Americana: Rock Your Soul". You may already be familiar with his "Deep Disco Culture" comps on Suss'd, "Deep Disco & Boogie" series on Kindred Spirits, and most recently his "Private Wax" comp on BBE, filled with essential deep Disco joints. Be sure to keep an eye out for his upcoming LTD 12" Private Wax series, and his follow up comp on BBE, Americana: Volume Two coming soon.
On the production tip, Zaf is partners with UK House music soldier Phil Asher, and together they have released 3-4 tracks together, and expect to release some more tunes in the future.
On the DJ tip, Zaf has the honour of playing at Southport this year with dj's like Kon, Dimitri from Paris, Sadar plus many more. Over 6000 people over 3 days. That's in May, and then he is off to the Sunsplash Festival in Turkey, Antalya for the 2nd year in a row. According to Zaf that that festival is like heaven on earth!
Now that you know a little more about Zaf, we hope you enjoy the tunes, support his releases and spread the sweet sounds around...

Robbie Busch aka DJ McBoingboing has created quite a tradition here at Secret Rendezvous with his annual Valentine's Day mixtape. The holiday is secondary to the annual bomb shell of a mix. I spend the rest of the year listening to these mixes, enjoying the sounds, getting inspired, and bugging him for track id's. And no, there is no tracklist yet, so don't ask, but it will exist on this very blog one day.
So cuddle up with a loved one, or just put those headphones on and prowl the streets looking for someone to love this week. Here it is, "Love Me Love Me Not" Volume 4!
