Electronica/Tech House/Deep House/Soundtrack.
This is a live studio mix of some of the fun tunes I've enjoyed playing in the latter half of 2019. I've gotta thank the Polish Rastafarian Jacob, Graeme's pal, for tracks 2-4. He played them at Resurrection Spirits and I loved them but the recording of his mix was shite so I brought them together somewhat for this mix. The rest is inspired a lot by Sentre, who have been producing some amazing tracks and Sasha's Last Night on Earth podcast and label. Some great tracks on here. One iffy mix in there but left it in for posterity's sake ;-) Which one is it? Also, keep an ear out for the movie samples in there. Can you name them? There are about a dozen. Let me know in the comments...
Sentre - Canadian Vibes, Yuksek feat. Polo & Pan - Cadenza, Crowd Control - If You Like, Kiu D - Deep in My House, Purple Disco Machine - Emotion, Robert Surace - Joys, Lawrence Hart & Casually There - Swimming Up, Ben Bohmer - Purple Line, Sentre - Enterprise, Roy Rosenfeld - The Biggest Heart, Sentre - U & Me, Cebb - Solar Path, Tibi Dabo - Nowhere Beach, Sasha - Comet Chaser, La Fleur - Aphelion (Effy Mix), Caribou - Sun (Kastis Torrau and Arnas'D Remix), Hans Zimmer - Time (Tale of Us Mix)
Retro House/Nu Disco/Funky House/Disco House.
This edition of the podcast features a very special guest, aka Dry Stems a resident of many establishments in Vancouver and Brooklyn, NY, including the Unfinished Business series in East Vancouver. He brings his inimitable four four fast-paced retro house and nu disco energy to this mix. We hope you enjoy it!

Funky House/Disco House/Deep House/Tech House.
Here are 3 segments of my mixes at Resurrection Spirits | Mixology Fridays on 23rd August 2019. I really wanted to bring you all of Graeme Jon's set along with these segments (it's about 4 hours in total) but we had some issues with the recording from his DJ system into our main one. Anyhow, check out the earlier mixes for Graeme's amazing tracks and mixing style. For this one, you're stuck with me, although I think there are a couple of guest mixes/tracks by Graeme hidden in here that didn't sound like the levels were blown. Hope you like it. I have a guest mix from Dry Stems to post soon as well as more from Graeme and I.

Funky House/Disco House/Deep House/Tech House.
90 minutes of 3 DJs mixing up a storm in East Vancouver at Mixology @ Resurrection Spirits on Friday August 9th, 2019. Hope you enjoy it. Help us build the tracklisting by adding your comments...
Old School Pop/Rock/Hip Hop/Funk/Soul/House.
This one's all over the place in terms of styles... It's a recording of a live party mix for Matt & Mel's wedding reception guests... And it's pretty solid in terms of execution apart from having to deal with a few drunken guests attacking the DJ booth (Volvo Tom & Steve O'Neill) but these bits add to the flavour... Anyhow take a look at the tracklist: it's pretty diverse... A balancing act between playing songs people know and keeping it fun to mix and playing a bunch of genres in one set... 3 hours of party tunes including one unknown random speed garage track from Tony near the end... Here's to married life!

Out of all the tracks I Shazamed from this set to find the track name, Shazam didn't find one. That's how exclusive his music is. You can't Shazam it!

Deep Electronica/Disco House/Trip Hop.
This is a cheeky homage to yes, you guessed it... The Late Night Tales music compilations. What I loved about these is that they are a homage to the history of the chosen DJ or artist's musical tastes. Kinda like a musical story of where they came from and which tracks stood out along the journey. I also like that they are not really meant for the dance-floor and are quite eclectic. I loved the Air and Jamiroquai ones. You might recognize the odd track in this mix. I put together my own version that was based around a history of deep electronic music - a tour from Detroit to Chicago to Warp Records with some disco house thrown in. There are a lot of other cities represented like New York, Bristol, Paris, Sheffield, Leicester... The natural place to start was with a few Larry Heard type tracks. This was how the tracklisting evolved and I recently played this out at Resurrection Spirits in East Vancouver and recorded the live mix then put it through my sound optimization software. Hope you enjoy it!

Deep House/Tech House/Melodic Techno.
This is more of what I like... Starts off deep and builds and builds... I like that I get to put two remixes by Andre Lodemann in here. Very underrated. Also, the Patrick Topping tunes steal the show. It also has some old school, some bangers and gets progressively more techy and bass-heavy. Goes down perfectly with a lemon ginger smash from Resurrection Spirits in East Vancouver. Even if I do say so myself.
Nicolas Jaar - Time For Us, Prommer & Barck Feat Lois Longerling - Lovin (Andre Lodemann Remix), Black Van - Yearning (Original Mix), Hardrive - Deep Inside [Original Version], Stefano Noferini - Disco's Revenge (Original Mix), Fatboy Slim - Praise You (Purple Disco Machine Mix), Mathew Jonson – Automaton, Dominik Eulberg - Opel Tantra (Original Mix), Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa - One Kiss (Patrick Topping Remix), Green Velvet - Flash (Jamie Jones Remix), George Fitzgerald - The Echo Forgets, Hot Natured feat.

Deep Tech House/Melodic.
For the Pre-NYE party 'Mixology' at Resurrection Spirits, I put together a list of melodic deep tech house heavily influenced by Jody Wisternoff and Sasha's DJ mixes. The tracks are a kind of retrospective of my favourite tunes of the last few years, hence the 'Old Fashioned' name, which is one of Resurrection's famous cocktails. It's not on the menu right now so you'll have to ask them to make it for you! Hope you enjoy the mix. Here's to a fantastic 2019.
Blue Fields - Seven X Seven (John Tejada Remix), Bas Amro – Ten (Vincenzo Remix), Disclosure - Latch (Jamie Jones Remix), Bat For Lashes - Rest Your Head (Manik Host Pines Rework), Tigerskin - Shea's Gone, Moon Boots - Red Sky (Original Mix), Bicep - Satisfy (John Talabot Rain Mix), Patrick Topping - Forget (Original Mix), Ilario - Gladis (Original Mix), CamelPhat & Elderbrook – Cola, Jamie Jones - Kooky Chords (Original Mix), Jaded, James Petrou - Toni's Pain (INXEC's Morphine Mashup), Maceo Plex - Stop Your Hate, Chvrches - Leave a Trace (Four Tet remix)

Deep/Bass House/Melodic Techno.
This is a tasty little gin and tonic mix from mine and Graeme Jon's first resident party at Resurrection Spirits in East Vancouver. This place has the best cocktails, a really great vibe, and fantastic people. We invite you down to the last Saturday of every month. Next one is Saturday, December 29th. This mix is hard and heavy in places and melodic and floaty in others... Definitely quite club-oriented for a bar in East Van but I love these tracks... It's very Sasha inspired with hints of all my favourite DJs: Laurent Garnier from back in the day and his Laboratoire mix, Jody Wisternoff from Way Out West, Jamie Jones, and Maceo Plex.
St. Germain - Sentimental Mood, Blaze - Moonwalk, Jesse Rose - Night At The Dogs, Jesse Rose - Miss Taker (Feat. David E Sugar), Jamie Jones - Somewhere 2009, Jin Choi - Half Baked (Maceo Plex Deep Remix), Justin Martin - Molokini (DJ Version), Duke Dumont - Won't Look Back (Shadow Child Mix), Breach & Dark Sky - The Click, Tiger Stripes - Baby, Dusky - Cold Heart, Lindstrom & Prins Thomas - I Feel Space, Dems - House (Evil Nine Remix), Chvrches - Leave a Trace (Four Tet remix), Lonely Boy - When I Think About (Giom Remix), Olivier Weiter & Alex Preda - Zebra (Einmuzik Mix), Sentre - Make Me (Extended Mix), Dominik Eulberg - Abendpfauenauge, Bicep - Rain
