Fresh Soup 090: Pierre a Soif
Season 1, Ep. 90

Fresh Soup 096: Øhm Sweet Øhm presents Space Disconauts
Season 1, Ep. 96
First standing behind the decks in 1969 at a club in a small town near Rimini, a young Italian DJ would spend the 1970s honing both his craft and a unique slant on the disco music that was being pioneered across the Atlantic. By the 1980s, Daniele Baldelli's Cosmic Disco was ready to lift off, literally; his DJ booth at Cosmic, an influential nightclub by Lake Garda, designed to replicate the cockpit of a spaceship. Informing a more esoteric brand of disco the world over, Baldelli's tendency to dig out unknown gems, to spin 45s at 33, incorporate instruments and live elements into his sets, had rubbed off onto a generation of space disconauts; a sound that has endured to this day through artists such as Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas. For his latest deep dive, Øhm Sweet Øhm takes us back to the 1970s and '80s via an ethereal realm of otherworldliness, a cosmic 60 minutes of dancefloor wooziness guaranteed to take you to places you could never have imagined. Get ready for lift off.
Fresh Soup 095: DJ Simm
Season 1, Ep. 95
Hotstepping from the genesis of jungle at the turn of the 1990s to the genre in its current form, DJ Simm is back with a clattering ode to 21st century jungle; drawing from the catalogues of two of the labels at the heart of the scene's shifting sound, Rupture and AKO Beatz. Like a vaccine supercharged with steroids, Simm's latest is a brutally brilliant session of hoovers and rave stabs, thundering bass and drums that have been programmed like weapons of mass destruction. In Soup 095, the jungle is very, very massive.
Fresh Soup 094: Pete Carvell
Season 1, Ep. 94
Happy birthday to us. As Fresh Soup marks six months of eclectic mixes and mid-pandemic merrymaking, the man who dropped our first session returns to his roots with a thunderous hour of alt-dance that draws on his hedonistic days as a resident at Ibiza Rocks; Pete Carvell blowing your bassbins to celebrate half a year of sensational Soup.
