Podcast 135 - The Detroit Beatdown (part 1)

It’s always a pleasure to broadcast a mix from this trio of most affable and heartwarming DJs, who return for a 2nd installment of house, techno and disco on the podcast. This time it’s a 6 hour mix spread over 2 shows. Mike Clark, Norm Talley and Delano Smith deserve to be up at the very highest echolon of house music. No tracklisting sadly for this epic.

Damn ... this is the best House mix I've heard in, oh, about the last 100 years. Mad props to Mike, Norm and Delano.

Nice Mix.
Love the 3 man crew setup.
I haven't heard a good Beatdown set in quite some time.
I remember back in Jan/Feb hearing the Obama/MLK speaches at parties. That was always a cool mix
And I love the mix @2:07:00
THIS IS YOUR CONSCIOUS.
SO WHAT IF THEY DON'T LIKE YOU.
FUCK ‘EM

Keep it up!

So, about the label 'beatdown' as a distinct genre...

Having listened to this (very pleasant) set, I can only say that it is a house set. No more, no less. If this set is representative of what NT, MC and DS play, then to call it beatdown is essentially a marketing exercise, creating a novelty where none exists. This is not to say there's no such genre as beatdown - for me, the woozy rhodes, thunking bass drum, and underproduced vibe of Theo Parrish's stuff is quintessentially 'beatdown'. To overextend this label is to potentially dilute its meaning, no?
