My apologies – it’s been a while since I’ve whipped out my digital decks and spun a few tunes out into the spacernet. This is a small eclectic mix of the groovy house variety. A bit of mooch, bump, jiggle and the odd bit of ‘hmmmm that’s nice Max….’ would not be inappropriate. Except if the in-laws are staying – then you need to keep it to yourself…

The tracks are as follows (MP3 on VDJ7):

  • Kackvogel (original mix) – Solomun
  • Movin’ Chris James refix
  • Leadbelly (original)
  • Sally – Adam Port
  • Tread deep – DJ Haze
  • Need in me – Flashmob
  • Gloryhunter
  • The more I want – Eivissa
  • A better World – Fred Everything & Giom

(A big thank you to all 14,855 people that have downloaded my podcasts in the last few years! It seems that the Americans, Brits, German and Chinese are the biggest house fans out there, closely followed by the Japanese, French, Australian and a few Russians. The Dutch and ‘Others’ need to get more involved….)

Digital needles

This is the first instalment of digital mixing from the Aphrodisiac workshops. A moochy, groovy blend of deep house with some dub disco undertones possibly suitable for some recreational culinary activities.

I’d probably make pancakes to this mix- maybe wearing a small, floral pinafore and some pink rubber gloves. I would – but I have no eggs.

This pinny sure feels good though…

Tracklist is as follows (all MP3 mixed with digital decks)

  • Groove for the main room by Peter O
  • Touch the sky by Penfold on Aphrodisiac
  • Groove cocktail by Nathalia on Pierogi records
  • Nuvex-U on Four Peas recordings
  • Final Dream by Mata and Mike Richardson

Once upon a time there were strange people standing in a muddy field before a crowd of funky ravers.

They stood behind 2 machines made by Technics with the number1200 stamped upon them.

Plastic discs turned round and around. They placed metal pins called needles upon these discs and a beautiful sound was heard…

Please find below a small mix of some house classics – from ’92 and ’93. Genuine vinyl, genuine crackles and genuine mistakes.

Track list:

  • Schmoo (original mix) by Spooky on Guerilla records
  • Flute on (voice on mix) by Secchi on NTM records
  • Amber groove (toxic hijak mix) by SAS on Liquid Music
  • Lion rock (most excellent mix) by Lion Rock on Deconstruction
  • Pacific symphony (DJ Ricci Pacific remix) by Transformer 2 on DFC
  • Passion (naked mix) by Gat Decor on Flying records

Harp beat

Somebody asked me recently ‘where’s the bass line?’ (thank you Mrs O)

A salient point – there’s not enough bass lines in the world – especially those big, fat and funky ones.

Here’s one I rustled up in the toolshed – it’s mostly Cubase (with some Albino synth and Moog VST providing the squelchy bits) with a pinch of real harmonica and a smattering of ‘Shannon – Let the music play’. A classic combination best served over a delicately roasted dancefloor.

It’s just a preview and will no doubt get mauled, tweaked and rewritten a Brazillion times…
