70. Live at Matt and Mel's Wedding in Maple Falls, Washington

Monday Jul 01, 2019

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...

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.

15. HypedMixes - July 2011

Tuesday Jun 28, 2011

Ambient/Indie/Rock/Hip Hop/House.   Another paradigm shift to bring me into line with today’s DJ climate: I’ve added my MacBook Pro to my Deejay setup and started using software to mix tracks along with my hardware. After a month of playing around and testing settings and different software, I’ve produced my first mix. By far the best thing about this is being able to mix so many different genres with relative ease. For today’s music scene and for your average listener, they don’t want to listen to pure electronic music for an hour: now’s zeitgeist is much more a combination of vocals, indie/alternative, house and electronica. A genre I’d call Indietronica. Software brings with it the ability to quickly choose tracks and mix them without having to prepare extensive tracklists and burning cds/ripping onto USB. This mix contains so many different styles: rock, hip-hop, downtempo, indie-rock, electronica, house and electronic funk. The possibilities for future mixes have suddenly got so much wider.

14. Spring Clean

Tuesday May 24, 2011

Indie/House/Techno.   Here’s a mix bursting with juicy little numbers. It starts off quite indie alternative with the great tune ‘Tighten Up’ by the Black Keys and going through the quirky soundtrack of ‘Drive Away’. Eventually, the robots start to make a racket with ‘Tuff Enuff’, which finishes with a kind of harsh blowing up of the machines that then bursts into the deeper tech-house of ‘Picanha Frenesi’, Phonique and Dennis Ferrer. We then get some upbeat breaks and deep electro-house that eventually climaxes into some Stanton breaks with some final flourishes from Metric, Extrawelt and Boys Noize on the remix of Daft Punk’s Tron Legacy soundtrack ‘End of Line’. Might be a good soundtrack to do the cleaning to…   The Black Keys – Tighten Up, Thomas Newman – Drive Away, Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks, Shit Robot – Tuff Enuff (Michael Mayer Mix), Michael Mayer – Picanha Frenesi, Phonique – Deep Tune, Dennis Ferrer – Journey to the Sun, Max Sedgely feat. Tasita Dmour – Superstrong, Timo Maas – Help Me (feat. Kellis), Juliet – Avalon (Jacques Lu Cont Mix), Little Boots – Earthquake (Sasha Mix), Jorg Murcus – Jouissance (Eelke Kleijn Mix), Juliet – Ride the Pain (Jacques Lu Cont Mix), Muse – Sunburn (Timo Maas Sunstroke Mix), Sub Focus – Rock It (Stanton Warriors Mix), Metric – Monster Hospital (MSTRKRFT Mix) , Extrawelt – Zu Fuss, Daft Punk – End of Line (Boys Noize Mix)

12. Dubsteppin'

Saturday Apr 23, 2011

Dubstep.   Well, I just couldn’t resist. I’ve been putting together a fine collection of dubstep floorfillers for a while now and decided it was time to put a best of mix together. This is my first attempt at dubstep mixing and it was a lot of fun. These 17 tunes represent some of the real bangers of dubstep from the last year or so. The Magnetic Man trio of Benga, Skream and Artwork, plus Nero and Skrillex represent some of the most dynamic and freshest producers of bass heavy electronic tunes of today. Long may this dance music renaissance continue…   Reso – Octacon, Magnetic Man – The Bug, Katy B feat. Ms. Dynamite – Lights On (Skream Mix), DJ Fresh – Gold Dush (Flux Pavilion Mix), La Roux – In for the Kill (Skrillex Mix), Skrillex – Equinox, Skream – Auto-Dub , Black Eyed Peas – Rock That Body (Skrillex Mix), Redlight feat. Roses Gabor – Stupid, Dizzee Rascal – Bonkers (Doorly Mix), Magnetic Man feat. Ms. Dynamite – Fire, Katy B – Katy on a Mission (Benga Mix), Leon Jean Marie – Bring it on (Rusko Mix), Nero – Innocence, Plan B – The Recluse (Nero Mix), Skream & Example – Shot Yourself in the Foot Again, Magnetic Man feat. Katy B – Perfect Stranger (Benga Mix)

11. March Madness (For Ed, Jez & Jody)

Thursday Apr 14, 2011

Indie/Deep House/Techno.   After a few year hiatus from mixing, it was a Facebook posting by my old uni buddy, Jez Gibson of Jody Wisternoff’s ‘Intensified December’ Soundcloud mix that got me back listening to and thinking about tunes again like a DJ. In fact, listening to Jody’s mix really got me back into that deep & melodic, fluid house sound. This is definitely the sound I’m aiming for here once the first few intro tunes are out of the way. The mix was recorded at the end of March 2011 and is dedicated to the aforementioned Jez, Jody and another fantastic DJ & uni friend, Ed Massey who has become my long lost DJ pen pal friend across the Atlantic.   Phonique feat. Erlend Oye – For the Time Being, Phonique – The Red Dress (Tiefschwarz Mix), The Hundred in the Hands – Pigeons, Flowers & Sea Creatures – A.M. (Ewan Pearson Re-Edit), Chymera – Ghosts, Ofrin – How Come (Phonique & Tigerskin Mix), Tigerskin – Everybody Likes Ollie, Phonique & Tigerskin – Shea’s Gone, Phonique feat. Ian Whitelaw – Our Time, Our Chance (Andre Lodemann Mix), Rufus – We Left, Benoit & Sergio – What I’ve Lost, Yuno – California (Phonique Mix), Runaway – The Fire Below (Azari & III Mix), Lil’ Mo’ Yin Yang – Reach (‘Little’ ‘More’ Mix), Francois Dubois & Master H – Rise (Chymera Mix), Ryan Davis – The Wolve (Max Cooper Mix), Funk D’Void – Diabla, Reso - Abyss

10. Boxing Day

Wednesday Mar 09, 2011

Indie/ House/Techno   It is March 2011 and Jacko Mixes has evolved from mixing on Technics 1200s with vinyl to a completely new and revamped digital media turntable setup. The setup is 2 x Denon S3700s and an X1600 mixer with full onboard effects, USB compatibility and vinyl platters to retain that old school feel. Although the music files are now digital, the process is the same. This means no software is used to create the mixes, only to record them. The first mix is a bit of a test for recording levels and effects. It's a little bit raw in places but that kind of gives it character. Here's the tracklisting for this housetronic journey:   1. Cut Copy – Future, 2. Plastikman - Kriket 3. Brittney Spears – Me Against the Music (Justice Mix) 4. Zdar – Don’t You Want Me (Tiga Mix) 5. Feist – My Moon, My Man (Boys Noize Mix) 6. Simian Mobile Disco (feat. Alexis Tay) – Bad Blood 7. Hot Chip – One Life Stand 8. Jesse Rose – Night At The Dogs 9. Jesse Rose (feat. David E Sugar) – Miss Taker 10. Tiga – Overtime 11. Boys Noize – Drummer 12. Apparat – Arcadia (Sasha Mix) 13. Deadmau5 – I Remember (Vocal Mix) 14. Robotman – Do Da Doo (Plastikman’s Acid House Mix) 15. Simian Mobile Disco – Sleep Deprivation 16. Boys Noize – Vergiftet 17. Soulwax – NY Excuse (Justice Mix)
