“Soulful sounds from the last 50 years.
Mendel Ezra is the sort of DJ who collapses time and compresses distance. If you’ve heard him play around Europe over the last few years, it maybe didn’t occur to you that some of the records you heard were made 30 years ago on the other side of the world. In fact, the records he played could have been made at any point in the last five decades in any corner of the globe. Mendel’s skill is bringing it all together into a single, soulful dance floor experience. He’s been spreading his message beyond Amsterdam more and more recently, his reputation flourishing thanks to his standout sets, his popular online mixes and his well-received edits. “In general I like simple edits that keep the soul and dynamics of the song intact,” he tells us, “but emphasise something different to the original.” It’s been working nicely. Mendel has given his light touch to music by Fela Kuti, Nina Simone, James Brown and, most memorably, the Brazilian bossa nova group Trio Ternura, with his unreleased version of “A Gira” sitting on a healthy 100,000-plus plays on SoundCloud.
As you’ll hear on these week’s RA podcast, Mendel also has a taste for house music, although it’s just one of the many styles he covers on the mix. There’s a relaxed sense of positivity in his selections, making it an ideal accompaniment for these warmer months.”
