Every new Cosmix is an intense labour of love, and this one was even more so.
Well, since volume 9 (almost 2 years have gone by!), I have been distraught by the fact that the genre represented in this series of mix has kind of whithered…
The Nu Disco label has become a kind of fad, shall we say for lack of a better term, and in doing so, the forebears of the genre have become more quiet, distracted or otherwise absent, while the hangers-on and wanna-bes took center stage…
Now, I’m not criticizing, I’m merely explaining why I found this iteration slightly harder to give birth to.
I must admit I almost struggled to find tracks that would fit in a new Cosmix, and even though I am extremely proud of the final result, it is obvious even to the least attentive listener that this mix is a lot more house and tech than it is disco, although the filiation is never far.
Am I forecasting the end of the series?
That would be akin to forecasting the end of music…
But the future will be a continuum of the past and I doubt there can be more than one additional iteration in this series, if at all…

For my birthday, I’m the one giving y’all a gift!
Again, here’s a mix born out of an intense bout of inspiration.
From the initial idea to the completion of the recording session, this mix took me about 12 hours, which really isn’t long compared to the usual gestation time I need for a new mix, and it was just in time for my birthday party, last Saturday!
I really like this one, I hope you will too!
Thanks to Karim for the pic.
