The Trippin Mixes - 004 LeBRON

@thisislebron

The fourth in our series sees a mix from Australian DJ, LeBRON.

LeBRON is a disco-funk DJ and producer from Melbourne, Australia, spreading beach vibes and disco around the globe. Influenced from the energetic era of the early 80s funk scene, artists such as Chic, Kwick, Change and many more, are simply a starter to where LeBRON's musical journey begins. His love for rare gems was sparked in part by his exposure to the French disco house scene, through acts such as Breakbot, Irfane and Daft Punk.

His mixes are a flawless expression of his musical tastes and we're excited to present LeBRON for Episode 004 in the Trippin Mix Series on Mixcloud. One hour of feel good funk and disco to keep you moving from home.

Tell us about how you approached this mix.

So I actually made this mix after a very hectic stressful rush from where I was living in Europe back to my hometown of Melbourne. Especially in such a time of concern and unknown, surrounded by the mayhem of airports and connecting flights, I had to find my serenity. The music I've selected for this mix was a collection of deep soulful 70s and 80s ballads, which for me is nothing but magic. Breaking it down, it's not just skill behind the musicians but the song writing and poetic lyrics. Combined together is so powerful in helping us to appreciate the surrounding environment.

This mix is perfect for some quiet alone time or with close company, at the end of a long day and time to settle down to enjoy the sunset.

What’s some of your favourite music-related travel memories?

One of the best experiences I've had was in South Africa. I didn't know a soul and was attending a wedding at the most beautiful location. I met an amazing group of like-minded people who shared a passion for music and we partied for a week on the cliff tops of Cape Town through numerous sunsets and sunrises. The energy of the city was incredible and the local vibe of the music was so different to any other continent I've been. It's such an isolated place with so many undiscovered treasures for the world to see.

How are you staying uplifted whilst in lockdown?

The lockdown has been the perfect opportunity to work on finishing some music. I feel for me it's a long process requiring patience and my home is a nice environment and atmosphere to find inspiration.

What's a place you're most looking forward to visiting?

I'm really looking forward to exploring more of Mexico. I have been once and feel I didn't even scratch the surface of how amazing the country is with its diversity, the people, the food, the music scene!
