The latest monDieu mix is introduced with claps, tropical drums a cut-off voice moaning «ah, oh», and then it sets off with a persuading male voice saying «ah ok». The brilliant introduction is simultaneously presenting its creator’s stage name. Discovering this feel of audible movement right from the start of this monDieu mix, the artist’s visually background comes to mind and really makes sense.
magnus ah ok is an educated Art Director from a school of communication in Oslo. At the moment he has left the commercial field and is studying Fine-art photography. His Soundcloud is reflecting a communicator of calculated precision, but his work is also abstracted, playful and fascinatingly distorted.
A lifeline provides help or support that is needed for success or survival, and Lebenslinie, is the German translation. Lebenslinie is also the name of the producer that has created our brand new monDieu mix. Make Love was made in a studio located in the town Rheine where Lebenslinie is based. Lebenslinie is a rather unconventional contributor to the music scene there as almost every local club offers Rock, RnB or «Schlager».
Feeling quite alone as an electronic music lover in Rheine, Lebenslinie was very excited getting to know two producers on the internet that included her as part of an underground electronic music niche.
mon Dieu Sound has the pleasure of introducing b0ka, three producers and two jazz musicians based in the Norwegian capital Oslo, where they create the fun sound of Spacedisco. In the middle of a cold winter night in an intimate studio on the upper west side of the city, the creation of their mon Dieu mix took place. If the mix awakens your appetite for music, you can look forward to b0ka’s track release through Manchester label Paper Recordings this fall.
In the mix, contrasting elements are blended impressively together in b0ka’s rare style. Among the sound selection, seductive Polish disco is combined with humorous Norwegian Electroclash, quirky Swedish dance stimulus and Japanese Art-Pop.
Introducing Lysgaard, an emerging cultural hybrid as extrovert DJ, introvert producer and graphic designer. The connoisseur of local club culture and electronic music is head of design in Nabovarsel, a Norwegian collective of artists, musicians and “nerds”.
His mon Dieu mix is a playful reflection of his taste in music. The eclectic selection of tracks is also based upon response from his latest dance floor crowds. That Lysgaard takes pleasure in uniting genres like throwback-house and acid disco is an obvious characteristic. The same goes for delicate details like cute soft spots that only genuine music geeks have. Like Sade’s sensual voice that is included because it appeals to him with a sexiness reminding him of a hot marshmallow.
Presenting Saeed Aman, a persian DJ, producer and radio host. With preference for an audio mood of melancholy and groove, the Florence based artist has mixed this wonderful blend of sound representing the whole spectrum of his taste in music. Our ears are taken from highly emotional percussion-less tracks to stuff suitable for his sets at the Florence club scene. The sound selection spans from soulful Iranian music to steamy south American vibes. Melancholy and groove are the two main quality components Saeed Aman always seek in music. It’s all about these two things and not really about the genre for him during the composing of his musical narratives.
Presenting a sound formula brewed by the mysterious AZ3. Ears will be sparked by mesmerizing rhythms of the enchanting genre Pythonissam Mentis Excessus.
Presenting Dj Pilot and his mix mon Dieu 002. This is an adventurous catalan sound narrative with a kind of analog style. The musical landscape is based on emotion and soulful voices. The blend is a selection of different genres with an undeniable connection in between. However different the sounds seem, they are all united in one common space.
The ear will comfortably be taken from hip hop to acid as well as from house to techno. An interesting element standing out is the variation, disturbance and fluctuation of tones. And as this is a mix quite out of the ordinary, a hot tip is to go all ears on the vocals.
