Back in the days when trance wasn’t a word to be spoken in a lowered voice with glances left and right to see whom might overhear; you had a welcome ambient influence permeating electronica that gave rise to these gentle, mellow yet eminently danceable releases. [Read more/listen…]
This mix came about with repeated listening to the Retroflex track, I just liked getting sucked into all the different parts of the song so I thought I wouldn’t mind getting it on a mix. At around 100bpm it’s not your usual 4-to-the-floor dancefloor staple track, so I put it aside and it was gradually joined by other twelves in the next few months that were around similar tempos. With the mix being around the sort of tempo of a ‘chill-out’ or ‘downtempo’ compilation, I like to think that I’ve managed to avoid any really obvious clichés from a saturated market and composed something a little different from what you would find in your corporate music shop and given exposure to a few less well-known but superb compositions. I hope you enjoy it.Show tracklisting.
It had been awhile since I had last put together a mix so I put together as many of my Italian import twelves as I could find and came up with this mixture of vintage piano-led tunes and Italian-flavoured deep house. Tracks 1-9, 10-15 & 17-20 were mixed on the decks whilst 16 and 21 and the other parts were all edited together on the pc using CD Architect. If it’s not sunny where you are, may this mix deliver some aural sunshine :-) Show tracklisting.
