Posted by admin in Playlist

Now that spring is on it’s way we’re going to really get into shape so you can take this great lively energetic mix of house, electronica, club and electro tunes with you and get into the groove. Shake, shake shake and drop drop drop all the pounds you put on during the winter months. It will really get you shedding the excess weight – really try the mix in its entirety (1 hour and 15 minutes) during cardio for a week and you’ll see what I mean. You’ll be brand new person.

When I do these energetic mixes I make sure I mix in a pretty big variety so I include hits from the past like Pow Wow by Cory Daye. It’s an awesome disco classic that not a lot of folks know about but I absolutely love it.

I absolutely love Pjano by Eric Prydz. I think this guy does some really fun music including the Steve Winwood Valerie cover entitled Call On Me and the Pink Floyd cover of Another Brick In The Wall called Proper Eduction.
Check out the mix and let me know what you think. It will really get you shakin!

Nu Disco

Posted by admin in Playlist

Nu Disco? Anything that sounds like disco but more modern. These tracks are all from the 90s to today so they have a more electronic and house sound to it but utilizing the disco elements and sounds.

This is a fun mix and great to have for a party or to drive fast to in a car. So could go both directions because you can chill to it to but it’s slightly more upbeat than your regular chill collection. I decided to put together this mix because I do love disco very much and I always love to hear new dance sounds that like to utilize the disco sound and this mix proves that disco is still alive and kicking!

Cafe Lounge

Posted by admin in Playlist

Well I do like my lounge chillout music and I do love listening to it at a cafe or a cafe setting. It’s nice to sip a hot cup of coffee – bite into a pastry with the jazzy, spacey ambiance in the background. Sound good right? Well I hope you think so with the mix I’ve put together below. Check it out.

We start things off with Les Courant d’ Air by Grand Tourism featuring the deep voice of Terry Callier. I’ve actualy heard the French version of this song sung by a French chick which I do like very much but I figured this version would be better for this mix. Terry actually does most of the song in English but he goes into it in French for a bit and out. It’s a nice one! Slowly by Max Sedgley is a smooth sexy slow groove track which gets things going in this mix. I don’t know much about Max Sedgely but I have this track in so many different compilations so I thought it would a good idea to include this in this mix. It works quite nice here.

Our next track is by Lambchop called Up With People. This is a slow, acoustic very late 60′s early 70′s track. Kind of sparkly choirish piece. It’s nice. It has a very slow and sunny feel to it. Perfect to sip coffee to.

Well this next track by Hooverphonic I pulled from a compilation called Recaffeinated Iced. Kind of what gave me the idea to do this mix but I’ve added my twist to this mix. I love Hooverphonic and I especially love 2Wicky from back in 1997. I’m sure you all remember that right? This one has a slight cinematic feel to it too but not quite like 2Wicky. Boy 1997 was the year of great Trip-Hop music. I remember it very well. What happened to those days?

I do love the idea of a remix if you don’t know already so I had to include a Cesaria Evora track from her Club Sodade remix album. This remix set it quite nice and her voice lends to the remix quite nicely. This piece is Petit Pays (Chateau Flight Remix) which is nicely remixed to a very mellow floating twilighty mix. Works quite nice here. Doris Days Blue Skies (Paul & Price Remix) works quite nice as well here. It’s got a nice laidback chill beat which compliments her big bright voice nicely. I like Keren Ann’s music especially her French tracks so I ran across this piece that she guests on. Bang Gang who I don’t know much about except for this track called It’s Alright which I’ve included on my DInner Party Music ’08 playlist.

Dinner Party Music

I like the music and I especially love this piece it’s quite moody and slow at first and gets quite dramatic towards the middle but then gets mellow and slow again. Worth finding more out about Bang Gang as I do love both tracks.

Next couple of pieces are from very familiar faces – Moby and Goldfrapp are no strangers to this chill kind of music. So I’ve decided to include Dream About Me and Utopia one after another. Think fireplace and a nice conversation with this music in the background.

I really love the music of Aya off of the Naked Music label. Her style is very chill R&B – very stylish and sexy. This track Nobody Knows Me from her debut album Strange Flower works quite nicely here in this mix. It’s a very mellow beat and her silky smooth voice is quite catchy. Check her out if you haven’t.

You can see that I’ve decided to put all vocal tracks here but everyone of the pieces are very chill and downbeat – nothing too obnoxious because you’re relaxing at the cafe not energizing! It’s definitely not a workout mix! Enjoy.
