On last week’s episode of the R.O.A.D. Podcast, the crew spoke to DiscoTech‘s Joe Maz and Konflikt. The former Miami DJ/producer duo questioned whether it is a good idea for artists to release new music during the Coronavirus lockdown.
Joe Maz also broke down his approach to creating “big room” remixes.
Watch an excerpt above and the full episode here.
Despite staying busy with DiscoTech’s relaunch, Miami-based DJ/producer Konflikt has dropped a creative 10-minute video mix titled, “Living in the 80s.”
Unlike the majority of 80s mixes we’ve heard, Konflikt’s session is focused on blending classic instrumentals with notable hip-hop acapellas. The former Red Bull Thre3style champion also let his turntablist side shine, as the mix includes plenty of clean cuts sprinkled throughout.

DJ/producer Joe Maz has teamed up with fellow Miami native Konflikt to relaunch DiscoTech.
The group was originally comprised of Maz, Gigamesh, and Danny Daze but parted ways in 2010 due to creative differences.
Maz announced the return of DiscoTech in an email newsletter last week:
“In 2013, I asked the absolute most talented DJ I have ever met to fill their large shoes. He goes by the name of Konflikt & has been based out of Miami for years. Over the course of the last few months we have been building a studio and coming up with ideas. The goal is to deliver original music & still continue to produce some remixes. We hope to bridge the gap between the ‘DJ’ & the ‘Artist’.”
To celebrate their relaunch, DischoTech has dropped a progressive house remix of Clean Bandit’s crossover hit, “Rather Be.” The original is currently #32 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and quickly gaining momentum.
Maz’s email also said that they’ve finished several originals which will be unveiled soon.
