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.

60. False Dawns

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. Check out the video to this mix here: https://mrvan.ca/falsedawns

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.
