Toast Tapes Mix #037 // Dino Soccio

Toast Tapes Mix #037 // Dino Soccio

To introduce yourself, who are you and how would you describe your music?

I’m Dino Soccio, DJ/Producer from Los Angeles via Chicago, I play, produce, and write R&B/Soul dance music. Sometimes it ends up being house, sometimes it ends up being what they’re calling modern funk/boogie.

Which artists and styles inspired and influenced you the most?

My inspirations and influences change over time but most recently I’ve been really digging the dance music that was made in the first half of the 80’s and the artists that now are trying to capture that feeling today.  Italian stuff from that era like Raf, Jago, Clio, and Plustwo all resonate with me.  Had a bit of an infatuation with 80’s soul music that was played at Paradise Garage between ’81-85 the last year and discovered plenty of stuff I wasn’t as familiar with- Womack & Womack, T.C. Curtis, Lonnie Reaves, Spencer Jones, the lesser known BB&Q Band.  New music and reissues being put out on Star Creature, Cultures of Soul, PPU, BBE, Superior Elevation, and The Whole Truth get me excited.

What is one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you hear it?

I’ll mention two here.  One is an all time classic Luther Vandross Never Too Much.  It always gives me chills playing that one in a set. Never get tired of it.  Another is Ten City’s All Loved Out (Love Serenade Mix).  Amazing playing on this one, lots of space, MUCHO feels going on there.  And here’s one more- Talk Talk- New Grass.  Definitely one of my top 10 tunes of all time, not a dance tune by any means but it resonates so much.

Tell us a bit about the Toast Tape you’ve put together.

This is just a sample of what I’ve been playing often in sets at my gigs in LA.  I play plenty of parties but I also do the 4 hour bar/club sets and I love doing it because it lets you stretch out and dig into some vibes.  Lots of countdowns in this one, wasn’t planned.  All vinyl, live mixing, no frills.  Hope you enjoy.
