‘Space Disco Choo Choo Express’. This is how an online community of dedicated electro lovers describes the classic ‘I Found My Place In Outer Space‘ mix from DJ TLR. If you’re curious to find out how this space disco express sounds like, check out this great mixtape by DJ TLR from 2002, one of my favorite disco/italo mixes!
DJ TLR is the alter ego of the Dutch Jeroen van der Star. As the founder of the recordlabel Crème Organization he has released great EPs of among others Basic Soul Unit, Legowelt, and Bangkok Impact. TLR represents the Dutch West Coast sound, lead by his own label as well as by the influential electrolabels Bunker and Viewlexx.
Next to being a big influence to The Hague’s electro sound and scene, as a labelowner and as the founder of the Global Darkness forum, TLR is being recognized as a great DJ. This is proven by this mixtape which in my opinion is one of the greatest electro, italo, disco mixes around. All aboard for outer space!
