*MIXTAPE* b/w Secret Rendezvous/DJ Ionik write up in Time Out New York
Chances are you've never heard of DJ Ionik—but one listen to this mix, full of boogie, disco, soul and house goodness, and you'll want to find out more about the man from Turku, Finland. We'll briefly tell you this: He's the man behind the Kojak Giant Sound and Traveller Records labels; he's been very busy issuing great disco edits, previously unreleased soul and, most recently, unreleased NYC house music from the ’80s and ’90s; and he's a freakin' great DJ. If you like what you hear—and chances are, you will, as it's a beautiful set—don't miss him at the all-new Bellwether on the debut edition of the Secret Rendezvous soiree on Thursday, March 22.
Here's a quick showcase mix put together exclusively for Time Out New York for the upcoming US tour featuring hand picked cuts from The Traveller Records & Kojak Giant Sounds catalog. Loads of upcoming tracks thrown in - hope you enjoy the selection.
