Beardo disco DFA don Juan Maclean made a riotous appearance on Tim Sweeney‘s Beats In Space radio show last night, and began his set with a new tune, “Love In Space.” The show gets off to a commical start, and gets more ridiculous as it goes on. But in between the humorous banter is some excellent music, including this brand new tune.
Check out the video above for this coming Friday’s trip to Heaven’s Gate with Beats in Space honcho Tim Sweeney and special international guests Axel Bowman, Kornél Kovács and Petter Nordkvist of Studio Barnhus. Studio Barnhus is many things – a DJ trio, a record label, a studio on Barnhusgatan (”Orphanage street”) in Stockholm, and they’re poised to bring the heat at Santos Party House this weekend. As a DJ crew, Studio Barnhus has created havoc in dodgy gin joints and blooming warehouses from Budapest and Barcelona to Tokyo and Tlacotalpan. Expect a perfectly organized mess of avant-garde techno/house hits, small but sweet glimpses of pop heaven, “and italo disco b-sides your new boyfriend is too stupid to know about” when Barnhus takes over the booth. To get up to speed, you can check Studio Barnhus’ interview with Resident Advisor here. For your pre-pre-party, Beats in Space’s Tim Sweeney has shared a mix recorded for the Heaven’s Gate party by Studio Barnhus which you can stream or download below.

Beats In Space celebrated 10 years on the airwaves last year so needless to say it was a big year for Tim Sweeney and the BIS crew at WNYU Radio. Many congratulations to them for rockin’ the underground for so long and sticking to guns playing quality music for the NYC masses as well as the many folks tuning in via the interwebz. If by chance you didn’t get enough of the 2009 lists, there were enough out there I assure you, then check out Tim’s. If you were unsure of just what might have been the dopest tracks then look no further than this list and check out BIS every tuesday on WNYU 10:30pm to 1 am.
