78. Emotional Robot Part 3 - Transformation
Deep House / Melodic Techno / Emotional Robot / Breaks.
After Emotional Robot parts 1 & 2, this mix took me 3 months to sit and stew over the tracklist. I've been listening to dozens of mixes trying to find the best tunes for part 3. There are a fair few Sasha and Lee Burridge tunes from their last 5 or 6 mixes. I've also added a bit of Bicep flavour to it in the middle and gone for some breaks and much faster dnb. In fact, there are quite a lot of tempo / bpm ranges in this one. Some amazing tunes. Indescribable.
Leafar Legov - In your Mirror, Nelly Furtado - Say It Right (Mass Digital Remix), Bajau Feat. Zoe Kypri - Flip Of The Coin (feat. Zoe Kypri), Declan McKenna - The Key to Life on Earth (TSHA Remix), TSHA - Me You, Bicep - Vale, Tom VR - Golden Memory, DJ Seinfeld - Electrian, Etherwood - Belorama, Roy Rosenfeld - Gran Poema, Matthew DeKay & Lee Burridge - Lost in a Moment, Rodriguez Jr Feat. Liset Alea - What Is Real (Deep In The Playa Mix), Sentre - All I've Got (Club Mix), Technoist - Gabby On The Beach, Baril - One More Rush, Eastern Sun & John Kelley - Rapture At Sea (Original mix)
77. Emotional Robot Part 2 - Learning to Cry
Following up on part 1 of the Emotional Robot series, which got into the top charts on Mixcloud for deep house, electronica and deep tech house, here is part 2. This one continues the journey through lockdown tunes. The story continues with our robot protagonist assimilating into the human condition and learning to understand and deal with emotions of sadness and longing. Or at least that‘s what comes to my mind after putting this mix together. It‘s a little bit more on the emotive side but with some driving tech house rhythms. Highlights include Charles Webster‘s beautiful live mix of Love Song 28 and Kolsch and Beacon‘s Pause. Both tracks featured on a more melodic downtempo Last Night on Earth podcast by Sasha. I think they fit right in here with some of the more driving tech house tracks. The first track ‘Sherbert Head‘ by Boards of Canada I wanted to start with because it‘s like tuning in to a station before progressing with the mix. Thanks for listening.
76. Emotional Robot Part 1 - A Genius Boy Named Roy
Deep Melodic Techno/House/Electronica
This is the first studio mix I've recorded on the Denon DJ Prime 4. It's part of a trilogy series inspired by tracks I've collected since the start of COVID. The tracks are part of a playlist called 'lockdown tunes' and they've been inspired by some of my favourite DJs and artists, especially for this part 1 in the series, Roy Rosenfeld. He features heavily on here with his dreamy melodic tech house. There's something of a middle Eastern vibe going on with this tracklist due in part to Roy but also Sebastian Leger's Lanarka. A big shout out to Lee Burridge as well. This is my take on his mixing style and although not as smooth as Lee I'm happy with the results. There are some amazing tracks on here. Give it a listen.
A Moment of Clarity - Boards of Canada, Symphonic Fantasy - Makebo & Amonita, Hypnosa De La Rosa - Roy Rosenfeld, No Drama (feat. Nadav Dagon) - Roy Rosenfeld, The Light - Mass Digital, Honey - Roy Rosenfeld, Lanarka - Sebastien Leger, If U Ever - Overmono, Phase - Roy Rosenfeld, Otro - Roy Rosenfeld, There - - Roy Rosenfeld & Eli Nissan, The Beauty of Silence - Armen Miran
75. Time (feat. Movie Samples)
Electronica/Tech House/Deep House/Soundtrack.
This is a live studio mix of some of the fun tunes I've enjoyed playing in the latter half of 2019. I've gotta thank the Polish Rastafarian Jacob, Graeme's pal, for tracks 2-4. He played them at Resurrection Spirits and I loved them but the recording of his mix was s***e so I brought them together somewhat for this mix. The rest is inspired a lot by Sentre, who have been producing some amazing tracks and Sasha's Last Night on Earth podcast and label. Some great tracks on here. One iffy mix in there but left it in for posterity's sake ;-) Which one is it? Also, keep an ear out for the movie samples in there. Can you name them? There are about a dozen. Let me know in the comments...
Sentre - Canadian Vibes, Yuksek feat. Polo & Pan - Cadenza, Crowd Control - If You Like, Kiu D - Deep in My House, Purple Disco Machine - Emotion, Robert Surace - Joys, Lawrence Hart & Casually There - Swimming Up, Ben Bohmer - Purple Line, Sentre - Enterprise, Roy Rosenfeld - The Biggest Heart, Sentre - U & Me, Cebb - Solar Path, Tibi Dabo - Nowhere Beach, Sasha - Comet Chaser, La Fleur - Aphelion (Effy Mix), Caribou - Sun (Kastis Torrau and Arnas'D Remix), Hans Zimmer - Time (Tale of Us Mix)
74. Dry Stems - Live Mixology @ Resurrection Spirits in East Vancouver
Retro House/Nu Disco/Funky House/Disco House.
This edition of the podcast features a very special guest, aka Dry Stems a resident of many establishments in Vancouver and Brooklyn, NY, including the Unfinished Business series in East Vancouver. He brings his inimitable four four fast-paced retro house and nu disco energy to this mix. We hope you enjoy it!
73. MrVanDigital - Live Mixology @ Resurrection Spirits in East Vancouver
Funky House/Disco House/Deep House/Tech House.
Here are 3 segments of my mixes at Resurrection Spirits | Mixology Fridays on 23rd August 2019. I really wanted to bring you all of Graeme Jon's set along with these segments (it's about 4 hours in total) but we had some issues with the recording from his DJ system into our main one. Anyhow, check out the earlier mixes for Graeme's amazing tracks and mixing style. For this one, you're stuck with me, although I think there are a couple of guest mixes/tracks by Graeme hidden in here that didn't sound like the levels were blown. Hope you like it. I have a guest mix from Dry Stems to post soon as well as more from Graeme and I.
