6 months has gone since we released a mixtape packed with disco, soul and funk. We named the first selection ‘The Galaxy Megamix “and it was a great success. Now it’s time for it’s successor –‘The Funky Friday Mixtape‘ – and once again you’ll find lots of great classics and pure evergreens mixed with brand new stuff and amazing remixes, edits and lots of other goodies.
So get ready to be spoiled by DJ Svoger, by these handpicked and hard-to-find gems, but as always, we sure share our best kept tracks with our friends, with a sincere hope – that if you like what you hear, you will share it with your family, colleagues and friends and invite them to join DJ Svoger on WordPress, Soundcloud, Facebook, Mixcloud, Tumblr or Twitter… or at least one of them:)

Our ‘Track of the Week’ is nothing less than a two hour handpicked classic disco and dance floor selection, merged into one giant groovy Megamix. The tracks are mostly rare re-edits, remixes, reworks or straight up bootlegs of old acquaintances … with a twist.
The hard part of this mix has been to search and select the right tracks for quite some time now, in an attempt to create a 2014 atmosphere, around these iconic and classy bangers.
Whether we have succeeded or not, is not for us to evaluate, but it has certainly been a lot of fun mixing all these great tracks together – and as always, with the great friends of DJ Svoger in mind.

If any of you were around to remember Modern Talking, you’ll love (or hate) the beat of this weeks’ track: Tensnake’s “Love Sublime” (feat. Nile Rodgers & Fiora). (Also) German producer Tensnake undoubtedly found the inspiration for this track from Modern Talking. None the less, the $voger thinks it is awesome. It has that lovely 80’s feel (the chorus is SOS-band worthy), not least attributable to Nile Rogers’ unmistakable guitar riff. This is bound to make any disco-lovers day, week-end, week, month … Have a nice one!
Every friday throughout the year DJ Svoger provides you with new great music for the weekend. We love all kind of House music and usually we select one of the greatest house tracks, that we have listen to the most during the week – but some weeks we give more than just a single track… and this week is one of those weeks. By pure joy in reaching 15,000 Likes have we created a short funky MiniMix to make it up for track of the week, with a free download as a bonus.
In case you did not know, DJ Svoger consists of Morten Kjær and Lars Bernt and our birth certificates confirms, that we grew up with early disco and for many, many years it has been a wonderful part of our musical passion and the soundtrack to our everyday life.
That’s why the MiniMix this friday is dedicated to disco, funk, soul, groove and as a tiny tribute to the legend, The Disco Diva and Queen of Soul; Areatha Franklin – so it’s time to get it right with some new remixes of old classics in this DJ Svoger Friday MiniMix…
Have a truly fantastic funky disco weekend!

It has been a great summer for DJ Svoger – we have collected loads of new great music, creating new plans for our future and enjoyed the clublife in Ibiza. But now we are back and we start with our Volume 4 of “The Sound of Sundays” mixtapes. This time we go back to the roots and the original idea, to keep it below 120 bpm, to hit the atmosphere as sunsets, days at the pool or drinks on the Balearic terrace can produce. We added some of the more classy, but reworked material into this edition, so you might discover that it’s slightly different than the previous releases – and as always, we hope you like it, download it and share it with all your friends…

This week DJ Svoger spent some time in New York City and as you all know, when you travel you sometimes pick up a tune or chorus that just keeps playing in your head. New York is full of great music and there is so many tracks playing all the time, so when we had to choose The Friday Track this week, it’s was obivious to pick that song, that just had kept on playing on the inside. So to New York and all the wonderful friends of DJ Svoger… Miguel and Kendrick Lamar – take it away;
These ten tracks is to all our great friends, who pushed “Like” on facebook.com/DJSvoger – it’s very much appreciated!
A wonderful saturday to all of you…
