"A freeze-frame of your eye in the strobelight...I'm indestructible" - Robyn. A return to my style of a great DJ set mix. A wave crest of energy house, then a trough of melodic mellow trance half way in, then build back to the house crest at the end. An emotional journey on an EDM roller coaster. Enjoy the ride!
Track List (56:00):
- Love U More (Oxford Hustlers Club Mix) - Oxford Hustlers feat. Katherine Ellis: A remake of the 1992 top 40 and #1 dance hit by Sunscreem. I loved it back then and am thrilled that Katherine is the voice this time. "You can make the sun turn purple, You can make the sea turn turtle, You can make me dance to order. My sex hung, torn, and quartered, But you know you can never make me love you more."
- Paradisco (Extended Vocal Mix) - Arno Cost, Norman Doray & Ben Macklin: "I'm smiling on a Monday...I am not myself when I get round you. You bring out the best in me." So right indeed. My fave track on this set.
- Son Of A Gun (Yuksek Remix) - Oh Land: "But I am burned out on this rush... I want to change my orbit...This time I won’t save you...You son of a gun." Yuksek ruled the vocodor on this mix to great effect.
- Raining (Extended Mix) - Kaskade & Adam K feat. SunSun: "I'm in the car speeding from the past but it's raining on my windshield tonight. Praying it won't last... tonight." Two of my faves, Kaskade & Adam K, in one fantastic emotional tune.
- Indestructible (R2C2 Sydney Mix) - Robyn: My Madonna in the past year. "And I never was smart with love, I let the bad ones in and the good ones go, But I'm gonna love you like I've never been hurt before, I'm gonna love you like I'm indestructible." Saul Ruiz and Corey Craig, from NYC (holla!), teamed up a year or so ago and formed R2C2. Thank Saul for providing the remix. I appreciate that they kept the orchestration in their remix. Second fave track on this set. www.saulruiz.com www.coreycraig.com
- That Day (Myon & Shane 54 Club Mix) - Dresden & Johnston feat. Nadia Ali & Mikael Johnston: We are now at the trough just after the initial drop on our rollercoaster. Once again, two faves, Myon & Shane 54 and Nadia Ali, in one fantastic emotional tune. "We tried so hard, on that day, you left me standing there...I watched you walk away."
- Always (Sacha M Remix) - Manendra And Eva Kade: "Beautiful dream the eyes, and their drowning me this night, I have always learned their in my heart be sure...worry, don't worry, You are my only love."French producer Sacha M brings a soaring trance take to the equally wonderful original.
- I've Had Friends (Jean Elan Extended Remix) - Morgan Page feat. Jan Burton: I'm pretty sure you know by now that Morgan Page is God! "You were sensible to the very bitter end, my friend. Don't depend on those friends who pretend and lie." Whew those are some lyrics and Jean Elan mixed a fantastic hard beat to match. We're on our way up that crest on our rollercoaster.
- Embrace (Fred Falke & Miami Horror Remix) - Pnau: The original was on my January '09 mix set This Disco Doesn't Lie. Thank to fan Dalton Link who suggested it on my Facebook fan page.
- Starry Eyed (Penguin Prison Remix ft. Theophilus London) - Ellie Goulding: "Next thing we're touching." Finally, a remix of this song that I enjoy.
- Barbara Streisand (Original Mix) - Duck Sauce: "Barbra Streisand UUUUUUUUUUUUUUU, UUUUUUUUUUUUUUU" LOL. Ride is over. Now go get in line again.
