DJ, Selector and Curator of Universal Playground SOUND, Bj Piggo, brings you fresh new diggs every month for your musical pleasures. Whether it’s music, art, lifestyle or behind the scenes, you will find new inspiration right here.

WE’VE MADE IT!!!!!

First of all, I would love to celebrate the fact that we’ve made it through 2020. It has a been a rollercoaster, but look, we are here in 2021. We are much stronger, we’ve grown a lot, we’ve fought our demons, we’ve learned new stuff, we’ve found new ways of living. We are new people and nothing can stop us. I wanted to tell you that. I wanted to tell you I see you guys and I’m cheering for you. I’ll continue to build and support and create a better world for us.

With that being said, there are some changes I want to talk about. I decided to create separate playlists for the year 2019 and 2020 Diggs on Spotify. You don’t have to be afraid of losing the music I found in those years. Just click on the picture below and it will direct you to those playlists.  And once again. Congratulations !!!

SUPPORT YOUR ARTIST FRIENDS IN 2021

This was the motto of Universal Playground the whole year 2020 and I think we have made some great things. The situation for many of us didn’t really change this year, we just got accustomed to it and found ways to cope with it. The vaccine is here, but corona won’t be over that fast, I would suggest not count on 2021 to come back to normal. So we decided to emphasize the support in our scene even this year. There are many people who have lost their steady income, who have families to provide for, and who dedicated their whole lives to this culture and to the people in it. It’s not easy for them so I would love to take this opportunity and suggest you support those people. Take their online class, help them in any way you can. Support them emotionally or financially. There is more than our culture at stake.

DANNY SON – STRICTLY VINYL HOUSE MIX

This guy! I have so much love and respect for him. He is a constant inspiration and motivation. The work he puts in things he loves is beyond good. It makes me so happy to see people around me growing and getting into new territories. Some time ago he decided to learn Djing and look at him now. Mixing vinyl like he was born doing it. I love it. Enjoy this amazing set from my brudi Danny Son and show him some love either on Soundcloud or YouTube.

VISUAL OF THE MONTH

Quan is a Slovak contemporary dance group that really is ready for export to the world. If i could help a bit to spread the awareness about them i would. Here they are with their new concept video.

When you take into account that time is relative and void is empty, you can find a parallel with the current situation. You try hard to do your best, but despite your efforts, the emptiness catches you anyway. In this situation, your directing can lead you somewhere else than you were used to according to the patterns, which worked in past, because now nothing is working as it used to.

INSPIRING AND MOTIVATING

Yulya is a dancer and illustrator from Russia. I’m sure you saw her work even tho you might know it was her. From event posters to portraits to just random creation, her art is unique. What I admire the most about her is her curiosity and that she is not afraid to experiment and try new things. It’s been quite some time ago but I just remembered her short visual story and I think that is a great segway to her work. Just click on the picture and follow the story in her highlights (marked with red circle and red arrow).

DANCE VIDEOS I LOVED

Here are some of the videos I came across this month that I loved. I know I have many dancers or dance enthusiasts here. I know a lot of you creating amazing videos for your IG, if you are one of them, we can offer you our platform to share your videos and get yourself on the waves of the internet. Just write us ;)

DJ SETS I’M ROTATING THIS MONTH

These DJ sets I’m rotating while working all month. I realized a long time ago that continual music keeps me focused and if the set is well-curated it can keep you in the mood for hours. Try it
