Ritz Mock Apple Pie for your ears!
This mix was planned for awhile now and I finally found some time this weekend to record it! At the request of a 30's-style mix, this one goes out to my friend Pat.
The cover art for this podcast comes from In Grid's Rivav remix of Vive Le Swing, which is where the inspiration for this mix originated. This upbeat mix steadily climbs, where it eventually meets up with the pure sound of Parov Stelar.
Summer has hit Calgary in full force and the weather has been great. Summer vacation is fast approaching and I won't be able to post any new material until I return from the abyss in late August...

My DJing journey began three years ago (wow, has it been that long!?) in Newcastle, Australia where a buddy of mine convinced me to go halves on a set of Stanton turn tables - so I have to thank Marko for getting me hooked on this. I also got to thank Nash for making me listen to house music for about 6 weeks straight, that seemed to be the final knockout punch.
Anywho, I recently listened to some of the old mixes we made during that time, and decided I had to bring those tunes back to life with some much improved mixing. These tracks are some of the bangin' house tunes from ~2007, which followed me wherever I went on my journey.
I think I'm finally safe to say summer is almost here in Canada, and we are lovin' it! A perfect time to continue living the dream!

This mix was made for my girlfriend, a self-proclaimed rocker, as a nice compromise between rock and house (since I can't play the guitar!) I compiled all my favourite indie, alternative, pop, reggae, classic and oldies rock-turned-house tunes and blended them all together for this particular mix. The tracks below are the ones that made the cut, although I would have liked to include a few more (decided to keep it to within 74mins so it would fit on a CD). I find quality rock remixes very hard to come by, so if you have any to add - please drop me a line!
Spring is around the corner here in Canada and we are anxiously awaiting the forthcoming heat of summer. The very best season for house!

1) Metric - Help I'm Alive (The Twelves Remix)

I had the pleasure of playing a set at a close friends New Years Eve party this year during cocktail hour. I also had one of my good friends visiting from Vancouver for the holidays and decided to use his guitar skills for the set. As such, this session features some background guitar, coupled with a sexy, smooth and funky lounge feeling on the turn tables. So a big thanks to my buddy Matt for adding some great live instrumentals on this one.

1. Kings of Tomorrow - Another Day
December 09, 2010 03:15 PM PST
On July 12, 1979 at a major league baseball game in Chicago, a local rock radio station held a promotional event dubbed ‘Disco Demolition Night’. Teens were encouraged to bring down their disco records, which would be blown up on the field during the intermission of the double-header that evening. The event, which soon turned into a full out riot, unveiled a darker side to the disco-sucks movement. The “disco” records that many of the fans brought were not disco records at all. The underlying racial and sexual prejudice of the event was remarkably noticeable for anyone who cared to look at it. Disco never fully recovered from this event.
But disco did not die; it retreated back to it's roots in the underground scene where it belongs. Whether we like it or not, house music as we know it today is the reincarnation of disco. This idea is far too simplistic, but no matter how you look at it, house and disco are the kind of music that makes you feel good.
Recorded live, this months mix takes you on a funky, soulful journey with a disco twist. It is my peronal favourite to date, so I hope it has been worth the wait for everyone following this podcast while I adjust to all my new gear.
Special thanks to Aslisu who brings her personal touch to this episode's cover. If the art has captured your eye, you can check out more of her work at either http://tarcinrengi.deviantart.com or http://tarcinrengidrawings.deviantart.com

With the summer of 2010 coming to a quick end, this mix reflects on the last three months of fun in the sun. It has been a hectic summer for me personally, with lots of travel within Canada and the start of a new job; my apologies for the lack in new podcasts.
Thanks to the continued support of this podcast, I have taken the plunge into buying new equipment. I'm looking forward to experimenting with lots of new music this fall, so keep your eye out for new mixes.
Special thanks again to Patrick Latter for providing the cover art. You can check out more of his work at http://www.redbubble.com/people/pat1926.
I will leave you with a message straight from the incredible Shambhala music festival in Salmo, British Columbia: "Never settle for less than you deserve... worst case scenario: AMAZING!!"
