October 2012 Mix

It’s been exactly three years since I last posted a mix. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to post some of them here soon. In the meantime, here is my Halloween 2012 Mix:

Prodigy Tracks Re-Created in Ableton

I just saw this yesterday and had to re-post it. Jim Pavloff analyzes and takes apart two very popular Prodigy tracks: Smack my Bitch Up and Voodoo People. He identified most of the original samples used by Liam Howlett to make the tracks and then pieces them together using Ableton. And he does an amazing job at it too! The tracks sound almost the same. For all those interested in using Ableton to make tracks, these are very inspirational videos.

Smack my Bitch Up

Voodoo People

Sasha & Digweed WMC Miami Mix 2010

Very busy again lately, so I have had no time to do a mix of my own. I am also learning to DJ with Traktor, so my next mix should be something completely different and much more creative. In the meantime, here is Sasha & Digweed’s Mix Live at the Sunset Cruise in Miami this year. It’s a little different, more melodical and more vocals, but I like! Tracklist is at the bottom.

Dubfire at Space Club Ibiza – Opening Party 2009


I found this gem while browsing through the Dancetrippin archive. What a great set by Dubfire! Most important is what he is using to mix his set with. Dubfire has gone completely digital and is using a 4-deck Traktor set-up to play his tracks. Almost full tracklist at the bottom and a list of equipment he is using.

November 2009 Mix

This set was inspired by two nights out, one at Tribe Hyperclub with Steve Lawler at the decks for Mihail’s birthday, and the next night at Circus Afterhours with Simon Patterson. Lawler played a dark, twisted and sexy underground set. Patterson played a trance set so this mix sounds nothing like what I heard at Circus that night, although it does have a very afterhours vibe to it. 🙂

2. Oleg Poliakov – House Of The Sun
3. Maetrik & Maceo Plex – Fabrick
4. Par Grindvik & Staffan Linzatti – Lights Up (On Divided Version)

8. Mutant Clan – Persuader
9. Ryan Thomson -Midnight Trust
10. Steve Lawler & Alex Tepper – Flexwood
11. D-Formation – Weakness
12. Ticon – Wrong is Correct (San Schwartz & Audio CL Mix)
13. Pig & Dan – Cubes

Finally, I got some time to do a proper mix. Techy-proggy-sexy-techno shajze. The mixing is good, but this set is more about my favourite tracks from 2009 and late 2008.
