New mixes

Yeah, been slacking on the upkeep of this blog… Here are three or four new mixes that came out since Atom & Eve…

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 hours 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.

Monsieur Seb’s Cosmix 7.5: The Call of CCCLTD

A while ago, my friend Mike, who runs the Quebec City-based label CCCLTD, asked me for an exclusive podcast to be featured on his website. He insisted it be no longer than and hour AND that it be a Cosmic Disco mix.

I was glad and proud to oblige, although I must admit making short a Cosmic Disco mix was quite a feat for me, as I believe this musical style, which I’ve been championning for years, is beter suited to very long mixes, as one can notice by looking at the length of the mixes in my Cosmix series.

With the parameters in mind, I offered Mike to make a kind of off-Cosmix, which is why this is entitled 7.5 (there’s also a 3.5 mix in the series, which is a live set recorded at Picnik Elektronic in 2009).

The deal was that Cosmix 8 would be loosely based on Cosmix 7.5 and that it would come out as soon as the exclusivity to CCCLTD was over.

So, with that said, here it is!

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!
