Press Play #70 - Mr Mendel

Since the seasons on both sides of the equator are about to head off in different directions, i thought it apt to drop two Press Play mixes at once, one for each hemisphere if you like. This one here from Dutch Funk, Soul & Disco DJ Mr Mendel is all about ghetto blasters and summer grooving, while the one in the post below from Andy Pye traverses more insular wintery sounds. 

Mr Mendel, for those that dont already know, is a man to keep an eye on. Not that he's new on the scene; Mendel hosts top class nights I Love Vinyl and The Daisy Age in his hometown Amsterdam and he's been digging hard since he made the cross over to more varied sounds from his Hip Hop early days. One need only to listen to any one of the mixes he has up on his soundcloud page to discover the depth of his skills at both digging and spinning. One might argue that Mendel is amongst the next generation of a lineage that runs through Rahaan, Kon & Amir, Rich Medina, Sadar Bahar and even our friend Marcel Vogel. With some edits of his own beginning to surface, it's pretty clear the guy has a little bit of what we love written all over his future.

As always i feel blessed to have dj's like Mr Mendel drop in on a.n.o.e. Thank you so much for this truly feel good session Mendel. Get on it people...
