So I had started a mix cast a while back with the intention of releasing many mixes, but over time I found my love of certain sounds drastically change. Within the last little while I have been getting back into the sounds that led me into house music to begin with. That deep soul and classic disco house. My productions have been mostly deep and classic and I feel as though that is where my heart is and always will be. Not to say that I would not do any other genres, its just where I think I need to focus my mind and fine tune my skills in that area.
Anyways, here is the mix, feel free to play it from this page or visit mixcloud for the full track listing.
So I would like to start giving anyone reading a list of favourite tracks, but as you can see, I don’t post very often. Trying to change that (i’ve said that before) So I think, start small work big? Maybe?
This track the original and the remixes (particularly my favourite is the Mario Basanov Remix ) are very deep and kinda grimey but in a very gentle way. All have a nice classic feel to them. Really enjoying the whole thing.
Anyways, thats my track of the week. I will spend some time mixing it up and come up with another track for next friday.
I haven’t been using Razor much, I have been into deep sounds lately and never really thought of it as a possibility. Even before the update I am sure I could have used it, but after reading about it more I have an incredible urge to use it for almost anything and see what happens.
I just finished a massive update of all my native instruments stuff so I will definitely be playing around with the latest Razor.
There really isn’t much to be said about this plugin. It rocks. It will fatten up any sound to degrees of ridiculousness .. So be gentle.. But worth ever penny. A must buy.. I had always been convinced but had not gotten around to purchasing it. After one day of owning it, I am blown away. Buy it now!
Dustin Nantais is a Toronto Producer / DJ that has been releasing some amazing music, set to move you and really sing to the sounds of deep house. This man knows how to bring that familiar sound with a splash of fresh dabbled about. As with a lot of great house music, it can be timeless and I think his music resonates with that feeling. If you have a chance to see this man play I would, as I will be.
New release from Slick Slaughter House Records. This label is off the hook. All their releases have been bomb, and not the usual electro smasher. The tracks ive been listening too have had that smashing ears to the sub sound, but without it being a constant noise wall. There’s variations and funk to the tracks that I cant seem to find in tracks that are charting. Read More and Listen
My remix is out! The album Diabolical Raps ( which you can download here ) was produced by Dollar Bin from Harlem. The album features many great remixes of the original song, also included is an instrumental version as well as an original track by $1Bin. Dollar Bins sound is great and you really should check him out more. He also has a beat mix tape that is pure genius. Check it out here.Read and Listen More
It’s weird. I was never really someone who bought music. In my teens I did buy a lot of punk tapes, but after I moved away from the genre, I didnt really pick up anything else. It’s only when I started playing with turntables and mixing did I start picking up vinyl. I still do, though there is just not as much as there once was. Once my access to turntables ended so did my purchases.
If you haven’t listened to anything Milt Mortez has released, then you really should check out this mix. If you love music you should check out this mix. I love mixing one single artist. It always interesting to see how the tracks fit (and they almost always do wonderfully) Milt’s music is very interesting and its style I think has somewhat influenced me in certain ways in terms of my electro idea’s. It is most definitely a unique sound to electro that I think is much needed lately. Mix in the Post
It is quite an interesting time we are in. Major music is still barreling down the ears of mainstream listeners, all the while an indy scene in turning from indy to mainstream. Will the indy scene eventually cram down the music the same way the big guys are, I doubt it. Where the big companies have endless amounts of money to spend on advertising, the indy/smaller players just cant compete. I think thats a great thing in a way. The current major players need to die. However I think its going to take a huge shift in the mainstream of people listening to the crap that is being fed and turning back to the days of finding music with your ears and friends.
