House Music for Grown-Ups, volume 2

A few days ago, I set out to do a new House/Tech mix (and I write House/Tech rather than Techouse on purpose) and, just a few tracks into the planning, it became obvious that this new mix was going to become the second iteration of a new series.

The more I think about the concept, and the more I listened to the original House Music for Grown-Ups mix, the more I realized I was onto something, here.

“Yeah? What?” I can hear you say…

Well, what I’m onto is a new series of mixes devoted to House music, and electronic music in general, that can be used on a dancefloor — if only because of its tempo —, just as well as in a living room, lounge, car, or whatever.

Fear not, the Cosmix series won’t suffer from this coopetition.

In other words, this new series will be devoted to House music devoid of the usual (and ultimately boring) dancefloor gimmickry, House music that you are not ashamed of liking and playing for your mom (if you’re under 40) or for your friends (if you’re over 40).

One might call it headphone House, but I find that limiting.

I must say that from this point of view, I am REALLY proud of this mix, as much for the musical selection as the technical aspect of the mixing.

As a matter of fact, I think it is one of my best outputs, technically, with several mixes lasting well over a minute or three, with one even lasting a full 5 minutes (from 1:01:31 to 1:06:39).

Now, I’m not saying I’m an mix athlete.

No.

I’m just an old-school DJ and as such I was taught that a good mix is a long mix and that the real art of DJing is creating a new atmosphere, almost a new track, from by combining two tracks.

Well, I humbly think I’ve succeeded, here. 🙂

A Summer Affair

I didn’t exactly know what this new mix was going to become.

What I knew is that I wanted to record a mix that would be a good example of the convergence I’ve been noticing between a certain faction of the Deep House branch and some of the housier tracks in the Cosmic Disco realm.

I even pondered making this a new iteration of my Cosmix series, but changed my mind as the gestation process progressed.

So, in the end, what I’m offering y’all is a nice one hundred and four minutes of Deep summery vibes that’ll complement your hot days as well as your cool nights.

Monsieur Seb’s Cosmix, volume IV: Welcome to Planet Khizmyazz

cosmix4

Yes, boys and girls, bipeds, quadrupeds and dodecapeds!

The new installment of the Cosmix series has landed!

It has been gestating since… well, since I released the previous installment of the Cosmix series!

Get your space helmets on, cadets, because I pulled all the stops on this one: it doesn’t attempt to please anyone or anything but the most weirdly disco neuron hiding in your brain — hence the title, and if you don’t get it right away, just repeat the name of the planet out loud a few times :p

At just under two hours, it’s the shortest mix in the Cosmix series, so far.

Lots of psychedelic fun is included, I strongly suggest… Heck no! I strongly RECOMMEND, that you don’t listen to this while straight.

I sincerely hope you enjoy, and if you don’t, try again: it’ll grow on you!
