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.

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.

July 2009 – Exit Festival, Serbia


EXIT Festival 2009 in Novi Sad, Serbia was celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this past July. EXIT saw approximately 200,000 people during its 4 days of festivities, and a wide range of DJs and Live Acts including The Prodigy, Moby, Lily Allen, Andy C, Sasha and Digweed, Steve Lawler, James Zabiela and Nic Fanciulli and lots more which are all listed here.

For me the best show by far was Prodigy who totally ROCKED the place! There were 40,000 people at the show and the energy was unlike anything I have ever felt at any show that I have been to.

Here is a video and interview with the Prodigy from a Serbian TV station:

Sasha and Digweed – EXIT Festival Serbia 2009

I was fortunate enough to catch the Sasha and Digweed show at EXIT festival in Serbia this summer. Although their set was good, I was surprised that they didn’t bang it out more at a festival the size of EXIT. There was about 20,000 people at the show, but I found they played a light set compared to the one I heard them play for a crowd half that size in Montreal at the end of 2007.

In any event, I am not complaining. The show was great and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to their set in a great setting at Petrovaradin Fortress in Novi Sad, Serbia. Here are some videos from their show:
