House Music for Grown-Ups


Good things can be said about working from home: when contracts are less forthcoming, I get more time to mix!

Hence, this fifth mix in little over a month.

Those who are in contact with me on Facebook know that I announced a new Lounge mix a couple of days ago but, lo and behold, here is a new House mix.

I’ve explained before how a new mix comes to be with regards to the way I work and, to make a long story short, this here House mix competed for my attention with that Lounge thing and won.

Not only did it win, but it litterally took over me: whereas I usually spend a few hours preparing a new mix, carefully researching the tracklist and mixes, this one came out almost automatically in just about twice it’s recorded length…

OK, that reads strangely…

What I mean is: this mix is one hours and forty-three minutes long and it took me only three hours and a half to do it, planning and recording included.

In any case, as the titles suggests, it is a mix of good, dare I say “mature”, House music.

No frills and dancefloor gimmicks, just good songcraft.

Kick back and enjoy.

Monsieur Seb’s Cosmix 8: In Space, Everyone Can See You Boogie


Here it is, Cosmonauts and Cosmonettes: the new Cosmix is about to hit your ears and endorphin production centers!

Several weeks in the making, this iteration of the series is a proud successor to its predecessors inasmuch as it doesn’t much sound like any of them! 🙂

Its 29 tracks range from 115 to 124 beats per minute and from pure disco to so called slo-mo house and deep house with a splash of italo-feeling groove and even an ambiant conclusion that I litterally decided on seconds before the track began. The mix was initially supposed to end with Carl Craig’s remix of Tiga’s track, but for reasons which belong to creators and artists, I just had to throw in Arp’s amazing tribute to krautrock as a coda to this mix.

Despite the high track count, it is a relatively short affair compared to previous iterations in the series. What that means is simple: unmixed, all the tracks on Cosmix 8 total 3,7 jours of music. Mixed (if one excludes the last track that’s not really “mixed” per se), you get 2 hours and 30 minutes. So more that an hour of that tracklist happens while two tracks are playing at the same time… Yeah, I like long haul mixes, a luxury afforded by new technological tools like Mixed in Key and pitch lock.

In any case, enough geek-talk! Get to downloadin’ and enjoy!

Oh! Wait! I’ve prepared a 21 minutes minimix that will be available exclusively to those who make a voluntary contribution of 10$ or more by clicking the PayPal Donate button below. Think of it as Cosmix 8: the extras! 🙂

P.S.: In case you haven’t checked it out yet, don’t forget to give a glance at Cosmix 7.5, which was an exclusive podcast for my friend Mike’s label CCCLTD and kind of a sneak peek at Cosmix 8.

Diving for Pearls


I love it when a new mix just pops out on its own, like this one…

I sat down to fool around with a few house and techouse tracks a few days ago, and everything just fell into place.

The title refers to the overall very deep vibe of this mix and to the fact that the tracks on this mix are all little pearls in their genre.

The older listeners will undoubtedly appreciate certain very old school-sounding tracks sprinkled here and there throughout the mix.

People who know me know I don’t bullshit, so I want to say this: the first two mixes are not quite up to par, but I must say that I had to work with a track that’s either voluntarily wild pitched or simple not tight.

Otherwise, I think this monster-mix (2h40m43s) is quite spot-on!

Enjoy!

Monsieur Seb’s Cosmix vol. 6: Set the Controls for the Heart of the Ultraworld

 

Some mixes just beg to be recorded.

Barely two months since the last installment in the series comes a new one.

The pieces just fell into place, or, more appropriately, the sculpture was already in the stone, all I had to do was remove the excess material, to paraphrase what a great sculptor once said.

So, here it is, in all its glorious two hours, fifty-five minutes and 40 seconds, my new 30 tracks-large sound sculpture.

It is all at once very different and totally similar to its predecessors.

It’ll make you groove, move, sway and play, it’ll take you through all kinds of emotions, ideas and dreams.

Or so I humbly hope.
