Guest Mix Info
For the last 12 years, the way that Detroit-based DJ Pontchartrain has approached music, is centered around two things – learning and sharing. The result has been an interesting change up from the status quo of what comes out of the motor city. What started off as a project for edits and DJ tools has turned into a rediscovery of the roots of dance music. This shift in the last few years has pushed him into the new opportunities with some of the greatest labels in disco and house realm, and interesting achievements across the globe.
When it comes to performances, Pontchartrain believes in the overarching goal of community. From the time he brought the Detroit Children’s Choir on stage with him at Movement Festival to sing along, to the bold invocations of poetry and messages of love, the dancefloor is a place for everyone to come as they are, and enjoy the people they are with, centered around the ancient idea of the communal dance.
It’s at times like these, when we remind ourselves of what will come again, that we need people like Pontch to give us a little escape. Tune in folks… Friday is here once more.
