    Episode 10-5: Champagne Twist

    Back in 2010, notable artists were on the rise, such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Rihanna, while David Guetta found a way to creep up the Billboard charts by featuring vocal artists. In this episode, I'll be serving a fresh mix of tracks strictly from Club Soda -Season 5- at a flat tempo of 132 BPM. The content and mixing technique was an improvement from the previous seasons when I started podcasting. I hope you all enjoy this for the summer!

    Episode 10-4: Kratom Tea

    Episode 10-4: Kratom Tea

    In this episode, we will take a trip back to 2009, which was when Club Soda: Season 4 premiered as a podcast. Drifting away from the 2-hour radio format in seasons 1 through 3, each episode in season 4 was a continuous mix. I've selected a handful of tracks I felt truly defined me during that season. Essentially each episode became a mixtape, yet no solid foundation of what I was. Many seasons down the road, improvements were made, and I've returned to season 4 to redeem myself. This episode is mixture of EDM (which wasn't really known as EDM at the time) and Top 40 remixes.

    CS New Years 2016 Special

    It's been awhile since a new episode was released so here it is. This is a lengthy 2 hour nonstop mix, making it perfect for your New Years party! The beginning will be a little rocky, flipping back and forth between 70-75 BPM and 140-150 BPM. It's an interesting way to see how doubling tempo works. The max BPM at the end of the mix will be 128, however almost all of the songs in this mixshow are slightly faster than their original. Have a wonderful new year and I'll be back in 2017!

    Episode 10-3: Mainstream Appetizers

    This episode is dedicated to the 3rd season, which was the final season to be aired on the radio. 7 years ago, a trio of songs were transitioned back-to-back, followed by PSAs and promos from the radio station. It was a two hour show from 8-10PM on Friday nights, a primetime slot for easy access to club music for house parties to call and request. This mix mostly focuses on top-charting tracks played on the radio from 1999-2009, a 10-year overview.

    Episode 10-2: Mirror Ball

    Episode 10-2: Mirror Ball

    Seasons 1 and 2 are consolidated in this episode to observe the birth and progression of this special program. When "Club Soda" first aired on the KJHK 90.7FM, there wasn't much continuous mixing applied. As a radio DJ, I had not discovered within myself to mix songs in a club style until later on. 10 years later, a retro set was crafted to take a look at history in a nonstop mix. A short 30 minutes full of glorious club classics from the 70s and 80s come together to provide a groove that will set you on a stroll down through memory lane. It just seems like the newer generation of music listeners do not recognize the significance of music from those decades anymore. Although it's a short episode, this won't be the last time you'll hear of this. Kicking off with a powerful anthem from Gloria Gaynor to meeting up with Barry Manilow at "Copacabana", we will start at a steady tempo and gradually increase as the mix moves forward.

    "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor
    "Copacabana" by Barry Manilow
    "September" by Earth, Wind & Fire
    "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper
    "Hot Stuff" by Donna Summer
    "Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)" by The Jacksons
    "Let's Groove" by Earth, Wind & Fire
    "Superfreak" by Rick James
    "Disco Inferno" by The Trammps
    "You're the First, the Last, My Everything" by Barry White
    "So Many Men, So Little Time" by Miquel Brown
    "It's Raining Men" by The Weather Girls
    "Beat It" by Michael Jackson

    Episode 10-1: Season Premiere

    DJ Chef Nguyen returns to present "Club Soda 10: Pendual", celebrating 10 seasons of the numerous radio broadcasts and mixshow podcasts. To observe such success for the last 10 years, this episode features 1 selected track from each season and mixed in chronological order. However as a tradition that started in season 5, a recap of the previous season's hits (mixed or missed) is very much needed; a crossover of songs from 2015 - 2016. The theme of this season is "Time comes and goes", leading to the title Pendual. I will discuss more about the format of this title in the next episode. Here is your tracklist for episode 1 of Club Soda 10: Pendual.
