Cosmix XII: Event Horizon

OK, so two Cosmixes in less than a week after I even wrote that the series and the genre were dying…?

Well, here’s the story of how those two mixes came to be.

I had been tinkering with a few mix ideas for a few weeks — Loungin, House Music 4 Grown-Ups, Cosmix — but getting nowehere.

Out of frustration, I threw all the tracks in each playlist into a single one and decided to start from there, not knowing what would come out of it.

What came out of it was Cosm11x, but a member of the Cosmix family almost out of necessity as it was on the cusp of being a HM4GU issue were it not, like I wrote, for “too many Disco/Boogie/just-not-House-Music joints in the mix”. I’m still happy with the result, but…

Once that one was done, I proceeded to reclassify every track I hadn’t used back in separate folders — Loungin, House Music 4 Grown-Ups, Cosmix — and, lo and behold, what ended back in the Cosmix folder was super inspiring, so I started planning Cosmix 12, and it merely took a couple of days from planning to recording.

This one is definitely in the Top 3 of my favourite iterations of this soon to be decade-old series of mixes.

No. Seriously. Check it out!

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!

7oungin’s Here!


Yes, a new iteration in the Loungin’ series, and frankly, it’s due in large part to the fact that I’ve been using Bandcamp more and more lately and making amazing discoveries or rediscoveries — ie catalogs of artists I know but was unaware of. A downloadable mp3 file is available on request.

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!

Monsieur Seb’s Cosmix: Second Orbit

After recording volume one, the urge to make a second iteration of the Cosmix Series (it was clear to me that thios was going to be a series) rapidly became intense and Second Orbit was born a mere 6 months after its predecessor.

I find that this mix is more refined and focused, compared to the previous one, but that’s explained by the fact that I was still discovering and exploring the limits of the genre, six months earlier.

Here’ I’ve started to define what my Sound is going to be within this genre, as well as exploring and paying hommage to the roots, as witnessed by the inclusion of tracks by Kano and Alan Hackshaw.
