Purple Disco Machine brings his “deep funk” sound to One Mix.
One Mix, Beats 1’s weekly radio show, hosts Purple Disco Machine this week. As his name implies, Purple Disco Machine thrives on modern club music influenced by disco, classic house, soul and funk. Celebrating 10 years of his career, Purple Disco Machine picked his favorite tracks and remixes for his debut One Mix. Expect his remixes of old school artists like Fatboy Slim and Jamiroquai, modern producers like Jax Jones and Weiss, and a slew of hit originals.
Tune in here exclusively on Apple Music.
Air Date: Friday 1st February, 2019 – 21:00 LA / 00:00 NY / 05:00 UK
Purple Disco Machine (real name Tino Piontek) grew up loving music as his father was an avid vinyl collector. In fact, his father introduced him to the classic funk sounds of the ‘70s and ‘80s, spurring Piontek’s taste for disco house.
By the time he was a teenager, he knew music was more than casual, it was bound to be the center of his life. Piontek cut his teeth in his hometown of Dresden, East Germany, working at a record shop and DJing at a club, exposing himself to music ever more and eventually championing his “deep funk” sound – a groovy blend of nu-disco and soul.
Piontek’s 2013 breakthrough hit “My House” put him on the map, earning #1 spot on Beatport’s deep house chart. The track still lives on as one of Beatport’s best-ever sellers and Purple Disco Machine currently ranks #5 in Beatport’s Top 100 Artists chart.
Remixes for hit artists like Gorillaz, The Knocks, Chromeo, and Claptone were no doubt a big factor in his popularity. And, of course, his debut album Soulmatic in 2017 solidified his reputation.
The coming year will see Piontek re-release a standout track from Soulmatic, “Body Funk,” release his first ever mix compilation, and kick off the countdown for his sophomore album.
Before his One Mix, we spoke to Piontek about his biggest musical inspiration, dream collaborator, perfect sunset track, and more.

The artist who inspired you to become a musician?
Sven Vath. This may seem like a strange answer for a disco DJ and producer, but seeing Sven play when I was a young raver made me realize that if you could be really good at DJing like he is, then you could do this as a career rather than just go raving.

City with the most underrated dance scene?
Montpellier, France. I played an amazing festival there last year. The crowd was really knowledgeable about disco house and really into it.
Industry prediction for the next year?

Best piece of advice for new producers?

Having a gourmet buffet dinner with Jamiroquai and 30 roadies every night backstage pre-show on his arena tour where I was the support DJ. The food was always incredible!

This past weekend, Ultra Music Festival premiered so much new music from producers. Each day brought on a killer show with thousands of fans flocking from stage to stage, hungry for more music. And for those who couldn’t make it, they were able to watch the live stream footage at home. Sadly, we did miss one major performance.
Deadmau5‘s techno alias, Testpilot, closed out the Resistance Reflector stage on Sunday, March 31st. This set did not make it to the live stream, but Youtuber Mi5taKlean captured footage of the entire thing. He shared the video on Reddit on April 1st. We’re thankful it wasn’t a prank.
The sound quality isn’t terrible either, so you’re able to get as close to the real thing. It is two hours of raw molten lava, distinct in its fluidity and unlike any other set out there. Check it out below:
The post [Watch] Testpilot Full Set from Ultra Music Festival appeared first on EDMTunes.
