Problematic Disko

Four Play Sessions is a mix series from Chicago’s Four Play Music and featuring the talents of Mr. Andrew Emil & Friends, published each month exclusively for 5 Magazine.

Curated by Andrew Emil, this month’s set is from Problematic Disko:

Problematic Disko… An idea born on a dance floor on new years day at a warehouse party in Manchester, whilst grooving away to Carl Craig!

Dave Anthony and Leon Chambers have been friends since high school, early influences where DJ Sneak, Derrick Carter, Daft Punk, Classic Recordings, Large Records, Henry Street amongst others. Between them as solo DJs they have over 30 years experience on the ones and twos, having played at most of the big club nights in the midlands (UK) and a couple of stints as guests in Ibiza.

Fast forward to the dance floor @ the Warehouse in Manchester: The realisation hit that there’s not enough risks being taken to actually move a dance floor – most mixes that are posted online don’t have track listings for followers to go out and support the original artists, making quality grooves and making a dent in what can often be a very commercial market. They decided to join forces as Problematic Disko. Problematic Disko mix for the freaks, the lovers, the jammers and others!

Problematic Disko can be reached via Soundcloud and Twitter. For bookings & such, email
