From the BIS website.

Beats In Space has been grabbing a lot of my attention recently. In addition to the great sets from Shit Robot and James Murphy in August, Austin-based DJ/producer Orthy made an appearance on the NYU Radio Show last week and put together one hell of a set.  He manages to blend an eclectic selection of bass-heavy, spacey disco with new wave into a  dance marathon that comes in right at one and a half hours.

For those in Austin, you may know Orthy  better as half of the DJ ensemble / party promoters Learning Secrets. This duo puts together the best dance parties in Austin (I think I’ve only missed one this year) and even used to have a great residency at Malverde (management replaced them with some shitty white rapper).

Be sure to listen to the whole mix as there are some great tracks that come in toward the end. My favorites are Sleazy McQueen – Mrs. Vanderbilt and Rickey Jean Francois – All Over Your Face. Rickey Jean Francois is also a group local to Austin that just released a couple of new disco tracks. I look forward to hearing more from them.
