PITSCAST.027 – Andrea Kalajian

pitscast 027 - andrea kalajian

Along with our new releases, we also wanted to bring back our PITSCAST series to start featuring DJ’s again! Our first guest is Andrea Kalajian (@andreakalajian) with a fresh mix of classic house goodness ^_^ Andrea and her co-conspirator Adam Charles run a bi-weekly socially-distanced gathering called HEATER on Saturday nights at The High Dive, featuring a wide variety of fire selectors playing hot tracks. They’ve also been providing much needed relief to Detroiters with their open-air “Deep in the Cut” series taking place in the freight yard of the Dequindre Cut. Andrea has recently produced a couple singles titled “It’s All In Your Mind” and “FRIENDS”, both available for free download on SoundCloud. Check out this mix and tune in to what she’s got going on!

PTS.025 : John Joseph – Nu Detroit Groove EP

Times are changing in Detroit, and it’s not necessarily good for everyone. People that have lived in the city their whole lives are being displaced by gentrification and rising rent prices, while a host of companies that give little in the way of value reap huge benefits from the highly publicized ‘rebirth’ and ‘revitalization’ currently underway. This new world is often negatively referred to as ‘New Detroit.’ As with all places, it’s essential to bring in new people and new ideas to continue to grow and evolve. Through electronic music, the new folks and the old guard come together to educate and be educated on what challenges continue to face this place in time and space. On this EP, John Joseph (@johnjosephdet) would like to share sounds that encapsulate this point of view. By mixing the nu with the old, it’s possible to create something unique and beautiful.
