Bonus sonic treasures on SoundCloud

Categories: General
25 February 2024

More music! My SoundCloud library has expanded beyond the Summer Fondue Sessions archive — I’ve uploaded a collection of my other mixes recorded in 2006-2011, organized into two playlists:

  1. House Haven: Soulmate’s House Journeys, with 20+ live sets and mixtapes, it’s a kaleidoscope of soulful house music in all its forms, from the soothing deep instrumentals to the energetic bangers.
  2. Beyond Beats: Soulmate’s Lounge Escapes, with a few of my non-house mixes, including a couple of live sets from private events — these resonate more with the mellow vibes of chillout, lounge, nu jazz, downtempo etc, and inspired by iconic compilations like Buddha Bar, Cafe Del Mar, and Hotel Costes.

I hope these soundscapes find a special place in your playlists, and hearts. 💗

P.S. These are not published into the podcast, and are only available on SoundCloud.

Radioshow shut down in 2015

2 October 2014

Dear Summer Fondue listeners, fans and soulful house warriors! We have something sad to announce today. After all the thinking and considerations, Summer Fondue crew has made a tough decision to shut down the radioshow as of January 1st 2015.

You all know things change, life evolves, music industry builds up and we’re getting older. :) For all these 8 (eight!!!) years it’s been a super great pleasure to bring you the joy and happiness. We do it because we love the music, from the bottom of our hearts, and there was no other reason than to share this love with someone else out there. Summer Fondue started in 2006 as a one hour radioshow on SSRadio, and evolved into the pure soulful extravaganza aired at dozens of online station as well as number of FM stations with thousands of listeners across the globe.

Some of you shared your feedback, and we got tons of nice and touching messages coming from all over, from Chile to Philippines, our Facebook page has 1270 fans. We couldn’t be more grateful for all the support we have.
But everything has its end. Episode no 215 will be the last one on December 28th 2014. So we’re gonna have 7 more episodes for you to enjoy before departure.

But! There’s always but, right?
We promise to keep Summer Fondue Podcast alive where you will be able to catch sporadical mixtapes from yours truly DJs Soulmate and Pasha Brisk published from time to time. Music keeps us alive, so I believe we’re definitely gonna get back to the djing session when the time and mood is right. So please make sure you’re subscribed to the podcast, this is the right feed address to add to your iTunes or other podcast catchers:

And of course the full archive of all 215 episodes will stay available online right here.

Again, we are super grateful for all the support and love throughout the years. We hope you understand.

For the love of house,
soulfully yours forever,
— Soulmate and Pasha Brisk
