Mixed Feelings | DJ Melanie

A special guest-mix series where DJs are invited to create a soundtrack for tomorrow's days. Next up: Amsterdam-based DJ Melanie celebrated her 22nd anniversary behind the decks and recorded an uplifting mix for us!


Every Mixed Feelings podcast is accompanied by a few questions that provide a little insight into the DJ and the mix they've prepared for us and for you.


Which feelings do we find bottled in this mix?

My love for Funk and Disco. That old-school sound is what I love to play and listen to the most.


What message does the music you play convey?

Disco is very diverse. In this mix, you will hear a lot of variety in disco and funk. Sometimes people ask me to play records everybody knows but I love to surprise people by playing funky tracks which are not common.


How is the mix reflecting your current music taste?

This is exactly my current taste in music. I started playing disco and funk back in 2000 and my love for disco/funk never changed!

Who should release a new album/EP already?

The Whispers.


What's magical about music?

Music is able to change your mood in a few seconds. Sometimes when walking with my dog outside listening to good music with my earplugs it could happen that I dance on the street. At that moment I NEED to dance! Haha... Nobody can stop that. When the music is good I dance!


What is your main source for finding new music?

Juno download.


If the mix would be a soundtrack, what (kind of) movie/video/audio-visual content would support it best?

That would be a movie back in the 80s.


I hope you like my variety of disco and funk!

Hope to see you on the dancefloor soon!
