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!

You Know Summer Is Here When…

…the new edition of my Summer Breeze series is out!

When I started working on this one, I wasn’t sure what it was going to be — a Cosmix, a Loungin’ with Monsieur Seb, a House Music for Grown-Ups or a Summer Breeze

After much tergiversation, the first mix was found and those first two tracks (actually track 2 and 3 on the mix, a third one was tagged in front later in the creation) clearly pointed towards a Summer Breeze iteration and, after recording it, I felt it was kind of a Cosmix Summer, but let’s not overcomplicate things! 🙂

True to its mission, it’s unpretentious, fun music for lounging in the sun, by the pool, drink in hand — except maybe for a slightly darker bit about three quarters into the mix (that cryptic track titled Edit Service #42 based on a Joy Division sample).

But fear not, the mix ends on a very joyous and light note with a song based around my all-time favourite songwriter, musician and arranger, Donald Fagen — the original being I.G.Y., from his 1982 solo album The Nightfly (which, incidentally, is the subtitle of Vol. 5 of my Loungin’ series and features the title track from that album).

Steely Dan/Donald Fagen are not often sampled and Lovebirds does it magnificently well!

On a spur of the moment, I even decided to mix in the original track for an even breezier, yacht rock feel; the perfect end to a great summer mix.

Here, then, for your summer enjoyment, is the fifth edition of Summer Breeze!

Monsieur Seb’s Cosmix vol. 7: Beyond the Rings of Saturn

Yes! Here it is, finally!

I’ve been meaning to get this one out for a little while now, but there have been many trials and false starts, and never was I satisfied with the direction it was going in…

Until today.

As many of my latest mixes, this one came out quite rapidly (about 48 hours: blame that on the fact that I’m jobless at the moment!), albeit not without intense labour.

This mix, which I believe is one of the last of it’s dynasty, is quite a monster, at 2 hours and 47 minutes, comprising 30 tracks that range from 100 bpm to 130 bpm.

“Last of it’s dynasty?”, I hear you say…

Like I mentionned in my post about my recent mix, Summer Breeze, there seems to be a serious convergence between so-called slo-mo house and cosmic disco and, in my mind at least, that means that the Cosmix series will soon become obsolete, giving way to the evolutionnary movement that gave it birth…

Who knows what it’ll be called next, but I’ll definitely be on it’s trail for you… 😉

By the way, here’s the story behind the picture and title of this mix:

“With giant Saturn hanging in the blackness and sheltering Cassini from the sun’s blinding glare, the spacecraft viewed the rings as never before, revealing previously unknown faint rings and even glimpsing its home world.”

The whole story (and full rez downloadable pic) can be found here.

Hope you enjoy!
