The funkiest DJ in Quebec City

If you live in Quebec city then you’ve probably heard of Nicolas Boutin whereas it’s with his Djack unit moniker or his other projects. “This co” by Nic B, is a mix which consists of cosmic disco, funky tracks, italo disco and new wave.  What I like about his mix is that the mixing is very smooth. Transitions blend in with nice peaks too.Very few DJ’s manage to play old and new tracks toghether in a seamless way and one is Djack unit for sure.

The mix starts over with Junior boys and then a superb edit rework of Stevie Wonder “Love light in flight” nicely done by THE producer of the moment : Craig Smith aka The Revenge. Then followed by Lindstrom’s awesome remix of Imagination ” Just an illusion”. The end of the mix features a great techno classic of the 90’s : “Mind of a machine” by Carl Craig on the underrated album Landcruising (1994) mixed with Max Berlin ” Elle et moi” a song from 1978 but here remixed by Joakim. I have very few information on this obscure artist that is reckon to be Jean-Marc Cerrone’s brother, and his song is an absolutely beautiful cold wave romantic epic reminding of Visage’s “Fade to grey” with its spoken words in french. The mix ends with Detroit experiment “Think twice” a cover of jazz master Donald Byrd. Jumping from different genres and erasing bridges between music it is truly a wonderful mix that begs a more important question : why isn’t there more DJ’s playing music like this ?
