It is rare that we hear a mix that encapsulates everything we like about a DJ set but when he heard this one we knew we had to have it as a Guest Module for the blog.
DJINN has managed to capture the pirate radio style of DJ'ing that helped catapult the hardcore/jungle scene so rapidly back in the early nineties and also pinpoints why Reinforced was so pivitol in transforming the music and gave dnb the cutting edge and forward thinking approach we fell in love with.
Reinforced was a leader in modern fusion and production techniques and was one of the most important labels in UK dance music.
This mix illustrates why it was at the forefront of the drum and bass scene and features tracks from some of the genres most well respected names and pioneers.
The Enforcers series were limited edition 12 inch picture discs that became instantly collectible and are still in demand today.

MonkeyRobot is producer-duo made of Brussels based beatmakers Eric P and LuiGi (Eric Paquet & Louis Van De Leest). After more than 10 years of activity as hip-hop producers under the moniker of the Infinitskills-crew they changed their name and visual identity into MKRBT/MonkeyRobot early 2010. Exploring the boundaries of soulful music between 90 and 120 BPM became their acclaimed trademark.
Monkeyrobot also makes part of the electronic/ cross-over future jazz project ‘74 Miles Away‘ inspired from the likes of Bob James, Weather Report and Herbie Hancock to the futuristic beatmakers of today.

April 20, 2013 is one of my favorite days of the year, Record Store Day! For me and Questlove;), however, EVERY DAY is Record Store Day. I'm quite sure it is obvious that music is important to me, but a huge amount of my time has been and will continue to be spent in record stores. If you are in Philly, go support AKA music in Old City. If you are in the ATL, go support Moods Music and Criminal Records. If you are in NYC, go support Other Music and Academy Records. If you are in Chicago, go support Dusty Groove. If you are in Cali, go support Amoeba Records. Did I miss any?
This show was kinda hard to put together, not as cohesive as usual, it's a blend of old and new. As I was starting, I heard a friend had passed. It was sudden and out of the blue, it made me reflect on what had been the core of our connection. He was a big reason I moved to San Francisco, then offered me a couch when I arrived along with the rest of the family, this allowed me to go on and meet all the great people I did. Then inspired me along with the rest of the gang Robbie, Gav and Jon by introducing me to amazing tunes to start DJing and making music for myself. Then encouraged me to keep it up. So for that I thank you much. Safe travels Scott Hardkiss aka God Within.
Our aim is to expose you all to deep beautifully strange music that will help you in the every day, as you view the world around playing out like a silent color film, the music soundtrack in your ears. Your on your way to work on the subway or bus, waiting at an airport or just walking down the street, maybe your standing looking at the most inspiring view as you reach the top of Ankor Wat in Cambodia, as you watch the sun set over a tropical beach or ride around on a bike at Burning Man. There are those moments in life that you attach to music, that help you remember them many years later.
Thanks to everyone who has supported 7 years of R360. I hope the show has introduced you to new artists, and helped create some memories attached to the music. Please share with a friend, it's how we spread. Add us on Facebook to show your support.
