Dina Juntila at RENDEZVOUS - 9 May 2014 (live mix)

Dina Juntila is the newest member of the RENDEZVOUS! collective and i can totally hear why they brought her in. Her set at the latest RENDEZVOUS! night is outstanding. library music, soundtracks, oddities and everything very well sequenced. Top Notch!

RENDEZVOUS! is a DJ collective & monthly event in Los Angeles, CA. Resident DJ's Alfonso, Adrian Younge, George Ben Sun (a.k.a. AM), Carlos Rossi, & Giacomo spin late 60's thru early 80's Euro soundtracks, sound library grooves, global psychedelia, incredibly strange cosmic funk, and other sonic oddities. There are also screenings of an assorted array of films from the poliziotteschi & giallo genres. It all goes down on the SECOND Friday of every month at the Hyperion Tavern in Los Angeles.

Popsimonova & Zarkoff - Die Brucke (J.A.M. TRAXX)

Honestly, I had never heard of Popsimonova, nor had I read a single word about Zarkoff, but then again I tend to welcome minimal synth/Italo/Techno releases as they come along, often by chance, without searching too much, I like it that way. but nuff talking and back to the music. 
Popsimonova & Zarkoff are on the verge of releasing a very cool vinyl LP + 45 on one of my favourite labels, J.A.M TRAXX
Die Brücke is 10 tracks deep, plus 2 L.A.S's Crimes' remixes.

Have a go, listen to the tracks and pre-order. Rue14n°14 highly recommends Die Brücke!

Cosmic Attic Mixtape by Hristo (Honey disco)

Honey Disco's head honcho, Hristo has made a sweet cosmic disco set.
The track selection is exquisite.
