Monsieur Seb’s Cosmix Volume 9: Lysergic Emanations from Outer Space

Let’s be clear right from the get-go:

This is the best Cosmix iteration since the serie’s inception.

Period.

I could very well stop here and let the music do the talking, but I still feel like making introductions for this monster…

Yes, monster.

Nothing short of that.

Why?

Well, for one, because its 43 tracks make for a three hours and fifty-three minutes listening experience.

And also because, even though many hours of preparation were involved, it was recorded in one straight take with no edits or touch-ups, and nothing but a bowl of cafe latte in this DJ…

Needless to say I am extremely proud of the final result of this session, for the following reasons (among others):

  • The track selection is (humbly) flawless. It ranges from your basic Boogie to Jazz-Funk influenced Electronica to downright Deep House and Electro and even a few that are impossible to categorize, all the while keeping to the spirit of the Cosmix series.
  • The mixing is (again, humbly) spot on. As usual, there are many long, drawn-out mixes, the longest one clocking in at 5 minutes (by that I mean that two tracks play at the same time and at the same volume for 5 minutes).
  • I felt like it was ages since I had recorded the last Cosmix, even though it’s not even been 6 months.
  • I was afraid the series was dying from lack of interesting material, but these 43 tracks have given me hope for the future.

Still, that being said, I haven’t given away one iota if this mix’ intensity and the music still has the whole stage to speak for itself and make you its slave!

Oh! And if you’re wondering about the lysergic thing, well… Let’s just say there’s plenty of acid sprinkled throughout…

P.S.: Yes. the title of the last track IS a message…

Enjoy!

Monsieur Seb’s Cosmix vol. 7: Beyond the Rings of Saturn

Yes! Here it is, finally!

I’ve been meaning to get this one out for a little while now, but there have been many trials and false starts, and never was I satisfied with the direction it was going in…

Until today.

As many of my latest mixes, this one came out quite rapidly (about 48 hours: blame that on the fact that I’m jobless at the moment!), albeit not without intense labour.

This mix, which I believe is one of the last of it’s dynasty, is quite a monster, at 2 hours and 47 minutes, comprising 30 tracks that range from 100 bpm to 130 bpm.

“Last of it’s dynasty?”, I hear you say…

Like I mentionned in my post about my recent mix, Summer Breeze, there seems to be a serious convergence between so-called slo-mo house and cosmic disco and, in my mind at least, that means that the Cosmix series will soon become obsolete, giving way to the evolutionnary movement that gave it birth…

Who knows what it’ll be called next, but I’ll definitely be on it’s trail for you… 😉

By the way, here’s the story behind the picture and title of this mix:

“With giant Saturn hanging in the blackness and sheltering Cassini from the sun’s blinding glare, the spacecraft viewed the rings as never before, revealing previously unknown faint rings and even glimpsing its home world.”

The whole story (and full rez downloadable pic) can be found here.

Hope you enjoy!

Monsieur Seb’s Cosmix vol. 5: Universal Boogie

Yes yes yes, boys and girls, it is finally here!

I was itching and scratching to get a new Cosmix iteration out since my set at Picnik Electronik (which was basically Cosmix vol. 3.5) and the ensuing Cosmix vol. 4, last August.

It took a while to put it together and find its groove — I do put a lot of thought and research into that series — but what a groove it found for itself!

This, my dear friends, is definitely the grooviest of the Cosmix series, so far!

You are about to download and listen a massive 2 hours and 38 minutes of tasty bits, the danciest, most straightforward of the lot, but then again, maybe not…

All together, the first three tracks alone take up 35 minutes of the total runtime and about a very groovy hour later, there’s a nice psychedelic break so you can light up a fat spliff before you start dancing again and get worked up for that one-two-three, jab-body blow-uppercut finale that’ll leave you dehydrated and, hopefully, ecstatic. I DO strongly reccomend that you listen to this mix in one sitting to fully appreciate it, otherwise the overall groove I was talking about before kinda gets lost…

Personnally, I’ll be bold and daring and say it IS flat out, no competition, my favourite mix in the Cosmix series so far.

Two little tracklist notes:

• The very first track was kindly offered by the artist even though it is still unreleased, and I have promised Dominique to help him get this track signed, so if you have any interest in releasing it or know someone who might, please contact me at dj@monsieurseb.com.

• As you’ve noticed, I take as little credit as possible when recording a mix, after all, I do them to introduce you to artists you might not know. Now, you’ll also notice that one track in the playlist has no links. The ting is, with that one, I have no idea how it got in my iTunes library. I subscribe to dozens of music blogs and such, and when I tried finding a relevant link for this track, I came up basically empty handed. If you have something to suggest, please do!

Monsieur Seb’s Cosmix 3.5: Picnik Cosmix, Aug. 16th 2K9

6336_124655871757_528861757_2768223_5468532_n

Well, not really live…

It was hot as hell that Sunday and I was afraid my laptop might overheat from the requirements of running Torq AND recording the set, so I forgot about the idea of recording it live on the spot.

So, I re-recorded the set today in the cool of my basement studio, and here it is for your listening enjoyment.

It is kinda live because I recorded it in one take… 😉
