Mijk van Dijk’s Microglobe

Yes, I do like graphics like this and that’s why I wish to share this with you. Although some details here are probably discussable, it shows a lot of connections from the past and pays respect to Africa, where our dance music grooves originally came from. So visit this link, click play and enjoy!
This is just the music of the July 2013 episode of Mijk van Dijk’s radio podcast »music 4 the microglobe«. 1st hour: I House U, 2nd hour: electric – eclectic – essential. If you like the full radio podcast with presentation and IDs, go listen to it HERE!

These are Mijk’s favourite tunes of June, available at Beatport.
As usual the Japanese WIRE festival releases a compilation. When I played there for the first time in 1999 I wrote a tune called Lite My Wire to celebrate the festival and my friends in Japan. This time again I took the opportunity to do something special.
