Summer Breeze 2014

sbmidsummernight

It’s that time of the year again: the release of my annual Summer Breeze mix!

Now, usually, it’s a very airy-breezy affair, but this year I was invited to play at the monthly event Echo Space at Bar La Caverne, in Montréal, and I decided to combine the two.

The result is that this year’s Summer Breeze is a little darker at times, but night time dark, not depressing dark, fear not!

Also, I’m trying out Beatport’s Sell Your Mix feature. It costs $9.99 (I don’t have a say on the price it goes for), and I get 10% (99¢) for each sale. We’ll see how it goes…

Just so you know, you have to buy all the tracks in your mix if you want to sell it on Beatport, so calculating an average of $2 per track, I need to sell about 52 copies of my mix to break even… 🙂

Thank you for encouraging a struggling old DJ like me! 😉

Merry Techmas and a Happy New House!

A new mix for your yuletide parties!

I felt like recording a new mix and since I have to wait a little bit to record Cosmix 8, I plunged head first into my TecHouse folder and whipped up this little mix for y’all.

It’s a relativly short offering compared to my usual lengthy marathons, but it should be plenty of fun to dance to or chillax in a comfy couch!

Most of the tracks on here are from 2010, but I just had to throw in an old favourite of mine, Bessie, by Shaboom, which came out in 1997 on Paper Recordings. People who’ve known me for a while know that I really played this track out when it was released.

There are no Christmas songs per se on this mix, but Mike Monday’s Do Be Do, towards the end of the mix, does have a very Christmasey feeling to it and even reminds me of Paul McCartney’s Wonderful Christmas Time with its use of delayed Juno hits…

I hope you enjoy it and I wish y’all the best for the new year!

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 House of Tech

houseoftech

So… Tech House is all the rage, huh?

There’s not a genre I haven’t spun or can’t spin, always with me very own unique touch, cuz I hate doing things just like everybody else.

So that’s what I set out to do with this mix.

But, really, I also dig this genre, or at least I did when I recorded this mix.

Since then, it has started going in circles, in my opinion, much like a snake eating its own tail.

Some FX and signature sounds (like those sweeps of white noise every few bars) have become so cliché and widespread among the established, as well as up-and-coming, producers that it seems no one is doing Tech House because they genuinely like it anymore, but rather because that’s where the money is at the moment.

Oh, well…

Hope you enjoy this mix, I think it is a very good portrait of that scene, at that time and, maybe, even since, plus it’s technically quite accomplished, if I may say so myself 😉
