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!

Welcome Into My House Vol. 2

Welcome Into My House vol. 2 cover

Yeah.

I felt like I was overdue for a new Tech House mix, but almost as soon as I set out to do one, I felt like I wanted it to be very Housey and not Techy.

So, after a few weeks of track research and mix planning, here it is.

I decided to make it the second iteration of the Welcome Into My House series mostly because I simply did not know how to title it! 😀

25 tracks in 2 hours and 16 minutes of the many shades of House, from the Dark to the Light to the Deep…

I sincerely hope you enjoy this one, because I do enjoy it a lot myself!
