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…

Monsieur Seb’s Daily Music Suggestion: what’s YOUR favourite Michael Jackson song?

Mine is either

or

I admit I’d have a harder time picking a favourite solo MJ track, but if I was given no choice to do so, I’d say Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough, and a special mention to Scream for the amazing video (embedding disabled by request in both cases).

Oh! And

Now, I wonder what was Marie’s favourite MJ song, cuz now she can get a private show!

Goodbye, Marie

One last music dedication for Marie…

Marie, I offer you this one as an hymn to your journey to wherever you are going now…

Journey of the Dragons – Galaxy 2 Galaxy (1993)

Monsieur Seb’s Daily Suggestion: once more for Marie


Music is the Key – Foul Play (1994)

Among the others tracks that Anne-Caroline suggested were also favourites of Marie, are these two.

Marie loved Drum n’ Bass, so it comes as no surprise to me that she loved Music is the Key.


Break Night – The Mole People (1995)

The second one is one I remember they discovered through me in a club night where I was spinning.

Marie, Caro and I had our own level of understanding of music and Break Night, by Armand Van Helden under the moniker The Mole People, was a track that most people didn’t “get”, with its 13 minutes of sloooow progression where not much seems to be happening, yet it constantly evolves.

Dance with the angels, Marie…

Monsieur Seb’s Daily Music Suggestion: for Marie L.

This is for my dear departed friend Marie Lebel.

I asked Anne-Caroline — who introduced me to Marie and who was closer to her than I was — what she remembered as Marie’s favourite song and this was it.

“She would listen to it a thousand times over in her car”, Anne-Caro told me.

It’s funny how, in a way, it’s very appropriate and fitting and even provides a kind of closure.

So, please listen to this with a loving thought for Marie, even if you never knew her.

She was truly deserving (and maybe in dire need) of loving thoughts.

I’m offering the Nellee Hooper version, too, in case Marie didn’t know it. 🙂
