Cosmix XII: Event Horizon

OK, so two Cosmixes in less than a week after I even wrote that the series and the genre were dying…?

Well, here’s the story of how those two mixes came to be.

I had been tinkering with a few mix ideas for a few weeks — Loungin, House Music 4 Grown-Ups, Cosmix — but getting nowehere.

Out of frustration, I threw all the tracks in each playlist into a single one and decided to start from there, not knowing what would come out of it.

What came out of it was Cosm11x, but a member of the Cosmix family almost out of necessity as it was on the cusp of being a HM4GU issue were it not, like I wrote, for “too many Disco/Boogie/just-not-House-Music joints in the mix”. I’m still happy with the result, but…

Once that one was done, I proceeded to reclassify every track I hadn’t used back in separate folders — Loungin, House Music 4 Grown-Ups, Cosmix — and, lo and behold, what ended back in the Cosmix folder was super inspiring, so I started planning Cosmix 12, and it merely took a couple of days from planning to recording.

This one is definitely in the Top 3 of my favourite iterations of this soon to be decade-old series of mixes.

No. Seriously. Check it out!

Eleventh iteration of this soon to end Cosmix series, as the genre is dying, in my humble opinion. I struggled in deciding whether this would be part of the House Music 4 Grown-Ups series, but there are too many Disco/Boogie/just-not-House-Music joints in the mix to warrant this one belongin in that series, ergo…

Summer Breeze XVI

sbxviHere it is, just in time for all your summer music needs! This is the revised version, because I wasn’t entirely satisfied with the one poste three weeks ago; I removed two songs from the tracklist and added one, as well as moving one from the beginning to the end of the mix to improve the flow.

Enjoy!

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! 😉
