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! 😉

Here’s the playlist, even tough you’ll also see it on Beatport:

Inside Me

New mix?

Apparently, yeah!

It came out of nowhere…

I mean, usually, I set out and plan to make a new mix, but with this one, I wasn’t planning it — at least not in this style — for yet another little while.

However, some time last week, I just HAD to start tinkering with my decks and, well, it just flowed right out of me.

Guess the right combination of tracks and mindset was there!

So, here it is… Honestly, it’s not a mix for amateurs: the choice of tracks, the mixing style, the very different moods, all require that you, dear listener, be ready to deal with it.

Just before recording it, I set my Facebook status to “New mix coming your way in the next few hours! Just in time for the weekend, too! Lots of weird goodness!”

Weird goodness might as well be the title of this mix! 😀

BUT…

As I was chatting about this mix, just after it was done, with my friend Mélanie D., she made me realize that this was actually some kind of message to my recently dearly departed friend Marie Lebel, and, in retrospect, I have to admit she was totally right, even though I didn’t realize it at the conception or recording stage.

So here’s to you, one last time, beautiful Marie…
