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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Deep House/Melodic Techno/Progressive House/Breaks
Here's a quality mix of the best tunes I've collected over the last 4-5 months. Some corkers from CamelPhat, DJ Icey and a few older tracks. It's a journey that starts more melodic and slow then builds into progressive breaks and crazy glitch-type noises. Wicked inabed mon.
