MEATtransMISSION Radio (Every Monday, 4-6pm)
If you’ve partied on the white isle, chances are the name Jem Haynes is one that’s firmly cemented in your mind. Synonymous with Sundays at Space, Jem’s graced the decks alongside the likes of Derrick May, James Zabiela and Carl Craig to name a few. Now, after 9 years in the Discoteca, Jem’s returned home and heads up the Colour Series label. We’re lucky enough to catch up with him and hear his top 5 tracks of the moment.
“I’m currently on tour in Switzerland, last week I played a great festival in the Swiss Alps called Arosa Electronica. Here is my top 5 from the festival”
Introspectral – Andre Hommen
Andre recently played my Colour Series label party at Arosa Electronica.
He’s not only a fantastic producer but an excellent DJ and all round top man!
This record made so much sense at the top of a mountain on a bright sunny day.
Melos – Vincenzo, Mic Newman
An excellent feel good record that always makes people move.
Alcatraz – MJ Cole
Best known for his smooth garage vibes, MJ Cole rips all that up and rinses out an absolute dance floor banger!
Jem Haynes & SOAME – Streets
One of my own productions that has been getting a great dance floor reaction every time I play. (Out in the shops 28th March).
Depeche Mode – Only when I lose myself (Lexicon Avenue remix)
Played by my mate & production partner Ian Blevins as the last track of the Colour Series party. 7:30 in the morning, the sun rising over the mountains, this hit all the right spots!
Catch Jem headlining Bank of Switches on the 16th April here at Cafe 1001. Event info: http://bit.ly/1XNfcws

MXD #002 – Kalix
Number two in our mix series has landed! This time we call upon the talents of 1001 regular Kalix and let him take us on a House-heavy journey with flavours ranging from rolling, quantized Tech House through to pure Acid numbers.
Not many DJs can say they’ve supported R&B Superstar Usher on his 2011 OMG tour, seamlessly mixing RnB, Hip-Hop and House music.. Meet Kalix, a London-based DJ and producer making all kinds of waves.
A regular on the London scene, having supported some of the most influential players on the circuit and done the works (Egg, Ministry of Sound, Pacha, Fabric, even Notting Hill Carnival), Kalix has launched Sucasa – A day-to-night party featuring cutting-edge electronic music, consistently strong lineups and attracting a fun-loving crowd.
His passion and dedication to music fuel his energetic and eclectic sets and give his production that extra something. With releases on Flat7, Minar Records, Paranormal Traxx and most recently I Can’t (release date 1st Ocober 2015) forthcoming on New York’s Karmic Power Records.
Catch him play 1001 next Sunday (11th October) for Sucasa.
MXD 001 – Born Freak
The first in our brand new mix series here at Cafe 1001 and what a way to start! 40 minutes of Deep, Groovy, Techy goodness from Born Freak. Enjoy!
DJ, Producer and head honcho of Freak Trix Records, the genre-defying Born Freak is hotly tipped as one of the rising stars of Dance music. Born Freak, aka. Kasra Mossayeri, is making waves in the inner sanctums of Electronic Dance Music after exploding onto the scene in July 2012 when his debut release, “Cocktail Bar”, was featured on the highly successful Mau5trap compilation album, “We Are Friends: Volume 1.” It still remains the third most downloaded track from the album and, after much acclaim. His genre-bending blend of electro, techno and house has seen him ear-marked for great things over the coming months. Sit tight and Keep it locked!
Born Freak plays Cafe 1001 4th September as part of the Freak Trix Records showcase.
