These guys will need no introduction to many of you. Audio Junkies have played in some of the biggest clubs in the World, released music on, and remixed for, some of the biggest house music labels in the World, and their music has been supported by some of the biggest names in the dance music industry.
Brothers Daniel Rave, and Yoav ‘Joe’ Rave (aka JaMoJo) are from Tel Aviv in Israel, and whilst they are one of the biggest names on their home turf, they are also one of the biggest draws on the global progressive house circuit too.
Their tracks and remixes have been released by the likes of Audio Therapy, Global Underground, Renaissance, Definitive and Hotfingers, with support from such heavyweights as Sasha, Dave Seaman, Nick Warren, John Aquaviva, Alex Kenji, Gel Abril and Wally Lopez.
As a live act they have been equally successful, with gigs alongside Gel Abril, Joris Voorn, Michael Woods, Ivan Smagghe, D-Nox, David Amo & Julio Navas, Tim Healey (Coburn), Midfield General, Phatjak/Angel Stoxx, Minilogue, the Flash Brothers and Circulation. And if you go out there and read the reviews of these guys, by ordinary clubbers, they hint that after an AJ gig, they are left with a sense of having been somewhere special.
This mix, along with most Audio Junkies productions and dj sets, falls into that intelligent section of progressive house, which exudes class, and has depth. The area of house which Renaissance has made it’s own, and the AJ sound definitely falls into the same category. This set almost exclusively comprises of Audio Junkies productions, and that says it all. Recorded live, this is a feast of soulful progressive house, sometimes with a deep twist, and sometimes a bit more techy, and with a nice sprinkling of vocals popping up every now and then. My own personal highlight of the mix has to be the ‘Let’s Make A Party/Beyond Detroit Mashup’. What a tune! What a melody!
