Happy birthday Nina. I still listen to Nina Simone on regular basis so it was a treat to find this!

Reading Juan MacLean’s blog today I notice he hasn’t updated it since November. His last entry is intense remember his friend, Jerry Fuchs. when I do listen to mixes I’m always going through any media that I can find. Today his final line touched me because of where I am today. I have had several people close to me pass away & there is that missing them, just to hear their voice one more time that drives me crazy. Then of course we all have people that not a single day goes by & we think of think of them.
There are particular tracks that always bring someone’s character and face to my mind. I suppose that is why I have such favorite songs because I remember that person, that time and what I used to be like. While reading his blog, while listening to this mix made me just think about all the times I’ve been in some gross warehouse dancing with people I barely knew then as time passed we all became family.
Listen to the lyrics to Ladies in the back. Yeah that would be me. I’ve heard this track before but it went well to start of this 33 minute mix.
Littlz just started playing out in Dallas this past year so any time she has a mix up I always snatch it up quick. This one is deep tech, oh it gets deep on this one.
I’m a super Sugarpill fan. This is a great mix, it’s only 37+ minutes long but every single track is Sugarpill – except the last two. Hell. Yeah.
Stoked about this. This is an older mix but I was just looking through Audio 1′s soundcloud to see if there is anything I missed, looked for moombaton seriously – AND FOUND THIS GEM!! It’s a super Michael Jackson tribute mix. It’s fun & it’s Micheal Jackson. It’s just back to back tracks, it’s a full mix.
One could really date their self by saying, “Oh I remember when this track came out.” Even Eli says during this mix, “Yeah, I’m playing 20 year old songs.” This is a recording from Eli’s new radio show on Thursdays at 8 PM www.RadioLily.com featuring classic rap, R&B, reggae, disco & funk. Tasty. Check the link for schedule for Radio Lily.
I just downloaded all of these so I’ll have great music this weekend to bump in my car and at the gym. Much love to you all.
I listened to this mix right when it was uploaded today. Great downtempo chill funky mix. iNDO is from Dallas. He has a regular spot on J. Caprice’s radio show “Live @ Juiced Music Studios” which airs every Friday on www.ChicagoHouseFM.com. If you’re a long time fan of deep house music there are several tracks that have you thinking, “Oh shit, I remember this gem.”
Dark techno mix. I was at a private party this weekend and someone played a Max Cooper track & so I was glad to hear this.
I’ve partied James Kelley for a while so it’s badass to hear this podcast as his new album, The Seven Year Detour, is now released & available on Beatport. Awesome work! This podcast, Dark-Material Podcast, has darker, midtempo soundscapes that lead into techno, and then back again.
The free download is available on the Spin website. Ah, this a great drum & bass mix that is perfect for the sophisticated ear, soul filled highs with dance able basslines. Perfect. This mix was created for Spin mag as a celebration of Makoto’s new album release. You can get that on the R&R Records website.
Wonderful mix to end the summer with. It’s labeled “future house” and sounds like techno kissed deep house and made out so this is what is sounds like, diva vocals & all! My favorite part about this mix is that I was thinking, “Wonder what he is up to?” Then I ran into his this Friday at Sundown at Granada. I’m telling you, music is fucking magic.
Wishing you all a very musical week. xoxo
Special Housin Association Podcast #161
Check out the weekly podcast from Special Housin Association. The entire website is awesome as well, from interviews to reviews & news for house music. It’s perfect.
A Night in Beijing
My favorite flavor is International Sexy. Eargasms abound in this mix. Omg. No more download available so just listen.
Live At It’ll Do (Dallas) 6/30/12
Two hours. You’d really be silly to NOT download this while it is available online. If you live in Dallas AND love house music AND have never been to It’ll Do – you better get your ass out there. It is a disco dance hall heaven. The only thing that sucks is that it isn’t Saturday every night. Bless Eli Escobar for uploading this mix. It wasn’t directly recorded from the mixer so you can hear people reminding him to “fuck it up DJ!” Classic!!
Friday Night Flavas (Unknown Date-2004) Guest: Alchemist & Jean Grae
I’ve listened to this at least 3 times since I downloaded it last week. It was a treat to find this online because THE ALCHEMIST & JEAN GRAE ON THIS MIX. J Rocc was in Dallas this weekend so I found this month old mix online in prepartion.
All Out of Line (Mix)
This mix goes everywhere, just glad to hear something that has various tempos. If you run different tempos, this is awesome for a run. It’s a great party-hype-dance mix, wish there was a track listing. Oh well, a girl can’t have it all some days. (PS AJ Bitner has a tumblr account with sick tracks, follow follow.
