76. Emotional Robot Part 1 - A Genius Boy Named Roy

5 days ago

Deep Melodic Techno/House/Electronica This is the first studio mix I've recorded on the Denon DJ Prime 4. It's part of a trilogy series inspired by tracks I've collected since the start of COVID. The tracks are part of a playlist called 'lockdown tunes' and they've been inspired by some of my favourite DJs and artists, especially for this part 1 in the series, Roy Rosenfeld. He features heavily on here with his dreamy melodic tech house. There's something of a middle Eastern vibe going on with this tracklist due in part to Roy but also Sebastian Leger's Lanarka. A big shout out to Lee Burridge as well. This is my take on his mixing style and although not as smooth as Lee I'm happy with the results. There are some amazing tracks on here. Give it a listen. A Moment of Clarity - Boards of Canada, Symphonic Fantasy - Makebo & Amonita, Hypnosa De La Rosa - Roy Rosenfeld, No Drama (feat. Nadav Dagon) - Roy Rosenfeld, The Light - Mass Digital, Honey - Roy Rosenfeld, Lanarka - Sebastien Leger, If U Ever - Overmono, Phase - Roy Rosenfeld, Otro - Roy Rosenfeld, There - - Roy Rosenfeld & Eli Nissan, The Beauty of Silence - Armen Miran  

73. MrVanDigital - Live Mixology @ Resurrection Spirits in East Vancouver

Thursday Sep 19, 2019

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.

68. Resurrection Spirits - 'Graeme's Gin Tonic'

Wednesday May 22, 2019

Deep House/Tech House/Melodic Techno.   This month's mix is dedicated to the person I stole 4 of these tracks off their playlist from... My DJ partner-in-crime, Graeme Jon. They're up there with the best tracks on this mix: The amazing remix by French duo Aeroplane of Lindstrom & Christabelle, the astounding Mark Knight remix of Dido, Cercle's vocal remix of Rodriguez Jr, and finally Monkey Safari's Sturm... There's a storm brewing indeed! I also love the Sasha remix of Baile on this one. He's proving he's got it not just as a DJ. Some of his latest produced tracks and collaborations are great, including the one with Dems towards the end of this mix. I also love the Green Velvet kick drum and vocals on 'What you talking about...' Deceiver... There are nearly 2 hours of strutting bass and deep spaced funk. Hit me up and let me know what you think...   Brian Ferry - Don't stop the dance (Sleazy McQueen remix), Adala feat.

67. Late Night Tales - A History of Deep (Live DJ Mix @ Resurrection Spirits)

Wednesday Apr 03, 2019

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!   Sebastien Tellier - Le Long De La Riviere Tendre, AFX - Laricheard, Mr Fingers - Stars, Model 500 - The Flow, Autechre - Eggshell, Sub Sub  - Past, Carl Craig - A Wonderful Life, The Beloved - Sun Rising, Röyksopp - In Space, Daft Punk - Doin' it right, Massive Attack & Mos Def - I Against I, The Prodigy - You Will Be Under My Wheels, Massive Attack - Unfinished Sympathy (Perfecto Mix by Paul Oakenfold), Surface - Falling In Love (D.K.

66. Resurrection Spirits - 'Lemon Ginger Smash'

Tuesday Feb 19, 2019

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. Anabel Englund - Reverse Skydiving (Robert James Dark Mix), Ed Ed - Illusions (Julian Ganzer's 23rd Version), From Beyond - From Beyond [LGR006], Raumakustik - Dem A Pree (Patrick Topping Mix), Akabu - Another World (Andre Lodemann mix)

65. Resurrection Spirits - 'Old Fashioned'

Monday Dec 31, 2018

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)

64. Resurrection Spirits - 'Gin and Tonic'

Tuesday Nov 27, 2018

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.

Tuesday Nov 20, 2018

Deep/French House/Tech House.   This is a mix I put together for a friend's 40th birthday party who happens to be French. I played it out at Resurrection Spirits in East Vancouver in October 2018. I selected a bunch of 1990s and 2000s French house & electronica classics from Daft Punk, Justice, Aeroplane, Ludovic Navarre (of St. Germain fame), and Etienne De Crecy.

60. False Dawns

Wednesday Jun 06, 2018

Electronica/Deep House/Melodic Techno   This is why I love my Denon DJ MCX8000. Once they make DJ controllers robust enough, they will rule the world. I selected tracks to be as creative as I possibly could while playing the music I love: electronica, house, and techno, all in a melodic and deep style. Some new tracks and quite a lot of retrospective tracks at the beginning. Big shout out to Sasha and his Last Night on Earth label and podcast mixes. The second half of this mix is inspired by his new stripped down style. I've also tried to include as many samples as I could to compliment the music.
