This week with dj and producer Michael G from Pretoria, South Africa. I hope you enjoy his "Mid Tempo Classic Collection".
Michael G was born and raised in the capital city of Pretoria, South Africa. He hit the Dance Music scene in the early nineties as a music fan and a young Dj playing in nightclubs all over South Africa. He has released successful compilations such as ”Flipside House Vol 1”, ”Exclusive 45’s” and ”My House is Your House.” This secured his place as a pioneer and a favourite amongst the followers in the local South African Dance Music scene.
In 2007 Michael G, alongside cousin Jullian Gomes, began the G.Family collective. Their unique brand of Deep House led them to release various Ep’s and remixes on several top South African and International dance record labels. 2011 saw the release of their debut album ”Break the Silence – Deep House Chronicles 6”, which was nominated for the 18th South African Music Awards (SAMAS) in the category “Best Dance Album”.
Michael G has persisted to represent his brand of the strictly vinyl culture, and continues to put his heart and soul into it. ”Vinyl With Love” is a movement which he has dedicated as a platform to showcase his sound and his influences as a Dj, spanning over 2 decades in the industry.

this edition is something special. I don’t know how many times I listened
already these mixes. It’s a must have !
The mix is
about tracks I am really into at the moment - it is as simple as that.
blessed that René asked me to go through my Brazilian collection and I
hopefully was able to come up with a selection that represents a small picture
of the great musical culture of this beautiful and outstanding country.
I had the opportunity to visit Brazil two times and hence this mix is dedicated
to those lovely and most hospitable people I’ve ever met - MUITO OBRIGADO!!!
contains music by Arthur Verocai, Tim Maia, Lô Borges, Wilson Simonal, Jorge
Ben, Marcos Valle, Milton Nascimento etc.
Both Mixes are VINYL ONLY!
