It’s been since July since the last Studio Time Exclusive mix on Mahogany and what better way to kick it back into gear with one of our favourite producing duo of the moment, Downtown Party Network.
The Lithuanian pair have been posted here on Mahogany numerous times with their brilliantly structured and eye-opener mixes and this one is one their best in my opinion!

How did Downtown Party Network start and what’s the music scene like in Lithuania?
S: Mario Basanov few years ago said that I have to meet his studio colleague Bradka. So we met and this trip began. Actually it was the time when DJing was not enough. About the music scene so as Moody says, “There’s good shit and bad shit”. Everyday I see more and more good shit :) not plenty but anyway it’s moving.
B: Actually Saulty is responsible for that. He came to the studio to convey his musical ideas. His musical taste was very close to mine so we found creating music together very easy. Like in a whole world in Lithuania is the same – we have lots of shitty production. But in the electronic music scene things are getting better and better everyday. Mario Basanov, Brokenchord, Leon Slomov – just a few to name.
Describe the kind of music that DPN produce.
S: Music which makes you trip – dreams, memories.. anything.. but always good emotions.
B: Sex. Slow… fast… usually bright. We do all our best to make people smile while they dance.
What’s your most treasured piece of music studio equipment?
S: Probably active monitors “Quested”
B: Most beloved are tube compressor “Avalon VT747SP” and legendary synthesizer ”Roland Juno 106″.
