Vive Le Swing

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...

Track Listing:

Artist | Track (Remix)

1. Corduroy Mavericks - What Good Is Music (Wattie Green)
2. Horatio - Sing With The Swing
3. Jeff Service - Squeeze My Woman
4. Wattie Green - Is You Is
5. In Grid - Vive Le Swing (Rivaz Club) *Cover Art*
6. Jackin Box - Jazz Bang (Pt II)
7. Parov Stelar - Catgroove
8. Parov Stelar - The Golden Boy
9. Parov Stelar - The Flame of Fame
10. Paul Carpenter - Minnie The Moocher (Original)

Australia Reloaded

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!

Artist | Track (Remix)

1) Aloud - Sex & Sun Pt II
2) Starsailor - Four to the Floor (Thin White Duke Remix)
3) Empire of the Sun - Walking on a Dream (Kaskade Remix)
4) Jean Jacques Smoothie feat. Tara Busch- 2People (Louis La Rouche 2010 Rework)
5) Michael Gray feat. Shelly Poole - Borderline (Club Mix)
6) Solu Music feat. KimBlee - Fade (Bimbo Jones Strings Remix)
7) Chris Lake feat. Laura V - Changes (Vocal Club Mix)
8) Supermode - Tell Me Why (Vocal Club Mix)
9) Michael Mind - Ride Like the Wind (Club Mix)
10) Fonzerelli - Moonlight Party
11) Mauro Picotto - Evribadi (Fonzerelli Remix)
12) Junior Jack - Dare Me (Stupidisco) (Warren Clarke Club Mix)
13) Modjo - Lady (Hear Me Tonight)
14) Out of Office - Break of Dawn
15) David Guetta - The World is Mine (Deep Dish Remix) vs Baby When the Light (Fred Rister Remix)

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!

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.

Disco Is Not Dead
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.
