James Huxley, London - United Kingdom - on 6/7/12
Join The Dots is no stranger to an excellent name on its exclusive guest mixes. The two hour show, hosted each month by the DJ, presenter and music journalist, Helen S, has welcomed the likes of John Tejada, Greg Wilson, Nic Fanciulli, Ricardo Tobar, Zoo Look and Mark E in the past and aims to showcase quality artists new and old on its second hour, but then what radio show doesn't? What stands it apart is its upfront track selection, tight production and on the ball music knowledge, as well its top notch musical direction. And to prove it? The show has attracted a growing worldwide audience since its launch two years ago, becoming a cult underground hit that's been snapped up by niche dance radio stations from Japan to Brazil, Sweden to Australia and USA to Germany, hosted on 14 platforms and with a listenership of over a quarter of a million fans. Check out the latest show here.
Driven, curated and presented by Helen S, it represents the ethos of the Join The Dots label and puts together some of the coolest upfront beats in the first hour and a guest mix in the second. To give you an idea of what you might be dealing with here - this month, hour one sees fresh cuts from the likes of jozif, Mosca, Breach, Alfie and Simon Baker and hour two gets busy with Traumschallplatten's new boy on the block, Ryan Davis, who has just released his much anticipated first album, Particles of Bliss, on the rather excellent Traum imprint. His mix runs from melodic to party starting and you can listen to it right here or just above.
Always a treat for your ears, later this month Join The Dots will translate some of its sound to the dancefloor, hosting a party to rival the Olympic's opener on July 27th at East London's Basing House with Youandewan, James Welsh and Helen S all on the bill. Check the details below.
