Next Friday Dalston Superstore is teaming up with Berlin based record label EXPLOITED to bring you the very first party from Exploited’s disco-offshoot Black Jukebox! Compromised mostly of re-edits of classic disco tracks from artists on the Exploited label and beyond, inspiration for tracks has come from artists such as Midnight Star or even Tina Turner. Ahead of the party with latest Black Jukebox contributors Behling & Simpson, we caught up with Exploited boss SHIR KHAN to ask him about how it all came about and his disco influences…
This mix is one long steady boil. No explosive drop—just nonstop deep house simmer. Pace yourself because it goes all night. Sip that drink, don’t slam it, and make it a vodka soda, not a PBR. It’s furnished with bass as inviting as a sofa, and a kick-snare groove to keep you moving with no effort. Pure class, Miss Muniz. Pure class.
Exploited Records’ Joyce Muniz is a Brazilian DJ based in Vienna who’s got that international vibe on lock, ready and willing to soundtrack dope hotels, chill clubs, and beachside breezes. In addition to blessing us with this mix, she also recently remixed Maya Jane Coles’ “Burning Bright”.

Things are always sunny in Claptone land. Clap your hands to the beat and jam to this soulful house remix of The Magician’s “When The Night Is Over.” This is some early morning rootop ish, for when the night is definitely over and the birds are chirping—the magic hour. That after-after party groove. It’s full of piano melodies dripping with emotion, skittery bongos, and pitched down vocals, ditching the orginal’s Timberlake vibe in favor of wobbly ramblings. The esteemed Parlophone Records was nice enough to let us give it to you, dear reader, for free. If you like it, make sure to go buy The Magician’s EP when it drops in November.
