Free Magic and Faso are the resident DJs of Discovery, a monthly club night in Brooklyn every second Saturday. Playing with the threads connecting House, Disco, and Techno, they set the mood for diverse headliners booked according to whoâ€™s records spend the most time in their record crates. Discovery Recordings provides a vinyl outlet for material from friends and their own studios.
This mix is a selection of funky, deep, body-moving cuts that touch on the full spectrum of disco's potential. We'll be posting an interview with the Discovery crew later this week; stay tuned.

Live mix from the last Discovery picked up by Autobrennt as mix of the week.
Free Magic is an NYC producer and DJ who regularly plays alongside the deepest house talents who come to play the city. Joining the dots between house, techno and disco, he has released his low slung groves on Discovery Recordings and it’s those sorts of sounds he favours when spinning at parties of the same name.
In fact, the mix of the week we’re serving up here is a live recording from one such party. It features a number of classics alongside warm and deep contemporary sounds, building slowly through more and more dazzling synths layers and hooky vocals to a bouncing, bass heavy and sometimes tech-edged zenith some two hours later. It’s quite the ride.
