Too Slow to Disco FM - What A Wonderful Feeling
Yes, we finally made it to the "natural Too Slow To Disco habitat": spring-summer-any-day-with-sunshine… As some of you might already be attending a beach somewhere, for this month's show we collected the best new slow-sunset-disco vibes from France, Canada, USA, UK, Australia and Scotland to get you into the perfect sunset mood, wherever you are. By the way, how is the weather on the moon lately? If you are looking for more of this modern sunset disco sound, check out our TSTD NEO FM playlists. And there's more! The last 20 minutes are an exclusive 7-track mimimix by Dave Mathmos for our latest TSTD baby, and what a special one it is: We are celebrating (never forget to…) our 15th!!! TSTD EDITS release, which will be out at the beginning of June. What an honour to have Australian / Italian producer Dave Mathmos on board for it, who is joining us the second time. He is also responsible for the most successful TSTD Edits release so far (Vol 3.) way back in 2019 (the 10 Inch is already insanely expensive on Discogs). This time he delivers seven standout smooth, soulful disco edits (from slo-disco jams to mid-tempo floor fillers) for us, that will make you slowly move your feet, promised. To celebrate this special moment in style, we will release this colourful package of tunes on a Double 10 Inch! Yep, we are crazy….

Too Slow To Disco FM - A La Plage - Le Nouveaux Mellow French Touch
With our new show we want to take you on a warm ride to the summer coasts of southern France! These are all new tracks by modern soft disco French artists, some of them quite successful (in France), but some even unknown for most Frenchies. What unites them is a modern approach to the sunny sound of the balearic French 80s, when tracks by Chagrin D’Amour, Caroline Loeb a.m.m. became big hits all over Europe. The sound back then and today breathes a longing for romantic beach sunsets, falling in (and out) of love, a holiday. Fun fact, you can even reproduce that nice feeling in cold Berlin, where Stella lives! Enjoy your free holiday with us! We just shared a new playlist simply called A LA PLAGE on the Spotify / Apple / Deezer dedicated to that sound… (as always hand-curated by DJ SUPERMARKT, fuck algorithms)

Too Slow to Disco FM - What You Won’t Do For Love
Tough times. No new show without the loss of another of my musical heroes! This time we say R.I.P. to the one and only Bobby Caldwell. Not the most famous by name but - oh boy - he wrote one of my / everybody’s most important West Coast Yacht / AOR / Blue Eyed Soul anthems ever: "What You Won’t Do For Love". A song so smooth, soulful and mellow, it is nearly impossible not to dance (slowly), fall in love, make love and feel the sunshine of a Californian coastline to it! It actually is one of the tracks that made me think about starting TOO SLOW TO DISCO. Almost every time I play it someone is coming and says "Thanks" because of a special story they have with it. On the other hand: youngsters come to me asking me about the track, because they know one of the many Hip Hop / R&B tracks (a.o. by 2Pac) that sample it. Millions of stories connected to music like this. Thanks a million, Bobby! Caldwell’s other work can be found in the music of Notorious B.I.G., Kool G Rap, Master P, Aaliyah, Nas X, Chance The Rapper, Kendrick Lamar, Little Brother, The Game, Madlib, Robert Glasper. I included Common’s "The Light" at the end in a special version with B.C.’s original track "Open Your Eyes" as an intro. So the second half of this month's show is all for Bobby! In the first half you get the best of the best of new smooth tracks from this month, by some of our favourite artists like YGSF, Benny Sings, but also new projects like JIM (of Crazy Penis), who will release a very special modern West Coast album soon, Pearl & The Oysters and a wicked cover version of The Beloved’s "Sweet Harmony" by Sirens Of Lesbos. I am sure that Bobby would have approved of all of these tracks because of the musicianship and smoothness surrounding these artists. Enjoy the flight!P.S: looks like Bobby was a pretty cool guy…: He contacted Chance The Rapper out of the blue shortly before his death on Twitter to give him permission to use a sample of his, because he liked Chance’s music. Here is Chance’s heartbroken tribute:"This never happens. I’ve never received a message from an artist thanking me for sampling their record. This is a record that hasn’t even come out and the legend himself reached out. I was so excited to meet you, I have not felt broken like this at a stranger's passing in so long. You are a true legend and incredible person who I know I will see one day ?????

Too Slow To Disco FM - (This Guy's In Love With) Burt Bacharach
So much work went into this mix, I almost missed the deadline… but, hey, it is to to say goodby to the real G.O.A.T., the one and only Burt Bacharach, our god of pop music! Here is my tribute to maybe the most important musician in my life. I tried to not only include my favourite Bacharach tracks (too many anyway..) but amazing, unusual covers of his music, most of them with a lot of Soul (and a Morrissey cover…). Also in here, lots of musicians (old and newer) talk about him, you will find interview bits of Burt himself, Hal David, Noel Gallagher, Richard Carpenter, Dusty Springfield, Dionne Warwick, Elvis Costello, etc. Like Noel mentions in this mix, even if you have never heard of Burt (fool….), you definitely not only know a lot of his songs/compositions, but for some strange reason you can also sing along to them, because they are/were everywhere. They are part of the backbone of modern pop music all over the world. I am pretty sure that if there are aliens watching/listening to us, they not only love his music, but they probably will come one day to take him home with them in their ship (a balloon, as we all know now…). Unfortunately, it's too late for that now… ! His songs float by all of us when we are young, often in the background on our mum's kitchen radio, but as soon as we become older, experience the big feelings of love, heartbreak, loss, sadness, melancholy… those little songs suddenly make so much sense. They are (and will be) the best remedy against all low times! And I can’t thank Burt Bacharach enough for making my shit times bearable. Your legacy will NEVER EVER stop to be discovered, loved by every coming generation in the future. R.I.P. Burt, and thanks a million for your music! Trust me, we will cherish the beautiful heritage you gave to all of us… P.S: One more really special musician left us recently, the one and only Terry Hall (Specials, Funboy 3 and so much more.), he would have deserved his own tribute show too, so of course his version of "This Guy's In Love With You" is in here!

Happy New Year to all you slow people in our solar system (and beyond)! Our first show in 2023 takes you on a smooth, mellow trip into the sound of a warm summer evening. Featuring new tracks by some of our absolute TSTD favourite artists like Eddie Chacon, Pale Jay and Benny Sings, mixed with a bunch of lazy slow disco edits.

Oh, and we have another homage to the Daft Punkers via Pamplemoose’s "Doin’ It Right“, because as most of you know, we here at TSTD like these weird cover versions of their hits. Ohohoh, don’t miss out on Streamer Nymphonic Orchestras wicked lazy dub version of Deee Lite’s "Groove Is In The Heart“. Crazy Shit. But Bottled Sunshine! Like this sound?

Too Slow To Disco FM The Very Best Of 2022 (The White Lotus Selection)
It’s a tradition to look back on the last 12 months in our last show every year. What we have for you here are the best tracks from our 14 favourite albums of 2022. These albums did not change the world but have been played on our stereos the most in 2022 and helped us glide through the year. We can promise you a better life when you listen to these (and a better life for these artists, if you purchase them ;-). Enjoy the last days of 2022, try to get some peace and don’t fight with your uncle (…that uncle…) about the situation of the world at the Christmas table. Take care! See you on the other side…
