Track List Part 2 (34:41)
1. I Will Be Here (Tiesto Remix) - Tiesto & Sneaky Sound System: Uber Icon DJ/Producer Tiesto assaults us with an electrofied tech groove. Yeah, I would be there too. Kudos for snagging Sneaky Sound System to collaborate with.
2. I'm Not Sorry - Thecocknbullkid: New comer Anita Blay, a.k.a. Thecocknbullkid, continues the electro tech with her non-apologetic anthem. Love it gurl. "would you hate me... I might be wrong. But I'm not sorry. I'd do it again. Again. Again. ooh!"
3. Still (77DJs Remix) - Komodo: Continuing the electro groove with an awesome vocal and nicely placed guitar sample.
4. Free 4 Love (Club Mix) - Hanna Hansen & David Fuentes featuring Maxx Diago: Is it house or is it electro. It’s electro with a nice piano and catchy “free for love” chorus. Dance on to the night.
5. We Are Golden (Mirwais Vocal Mix) - Mika: Mirwais reconfirms his talent years after 'Music' (Madonna) with his outstanding mix of the not so closeted Mika and the result is simply golden. "Running around like a clown on purpose. We are not what you think we are."
6. Unreal To Me (Corderoy & Bury Remix) – FKN: A wannabe trance but pop groove that will not get out of my head. "As long as I'm free to do what I want to do. It won't feel so unreal to me."
7. No Regrets (Chriss Ortega Sunrise Mix) - Alex Morph featuring Simon: Alex has made some of my fave trance tunes but Ortega and the Simon vocal should be married. Yay for great emotional trance.
Four weeks of the freshest and hottest grooves to sizzle your senses. Every Friday in the month of August a hot new 30-35 minute DJ set for your weekend. When placed together these four will fit perfectly as a 2+ hour DJ mix opus. This is what The Summer Groove Experiment is all about.

Track List Part 1 (33:25):
1. Hold On (Freemason's Club Mix) - Mr. DYF featuring Shena:
The Freemason's beg us to hold on and hang tough and no doubt you will as they never cease to please.
2. Follow Me - Stent and Frater:
The classic by Stent and Frater asks us to follow them, while we end hate, to a way fun updated house groove.
3. Celebration (Benny Benassi Remix) - Madonna:
Her Madgesty commands us to party with her and her friend DJ/producer Paul Oakenfold. Classic Madonna with a Benassi tip. I bow down to her 26+ year reign. Long live the queen!
4. Stay (Jerome Isma-Ae Mix) - Tommy Vee & Mauro Ferrucci ft. Ce Ce Rogers:
This song is perfect in many ways. A perfect disco house groove with an outstanding male vocal. Reminds me of Seal. Love!
5. Addicted (Club Mix) - Serge Devant:
You are going to get addicted "out of (your) head" and not because newcomer Serge Devant hails from NYC, or that his new album is killer, but because the tune is just, well... addictive.
6. Disconnected (Myon & Shane 54 Vocal Mix) - Michael Angelo Featuring Jenry R:
If you are a Club Kerry NYC fan then you know I love a male vocal and this song fits the bill. It doesn't hurt that my fave mix is by one of my fave trance dj/producer duos, Myon & Shane 54, who hail from Hungary.
Six months and 5,000+ subscriptions/downloads later, here are my fave tunes from my DJ podcasts so far. As always there are infectious melodies, smooth mixing, female and male vocals and some of my fave remixers. A great introduction for the newcomers and a reminder of where we have been for the veterans. The track list also includes the name of the podcast episode (linked) where you can find the tune. Look for part two filled with great dance tunes in another six months.
The Track List (75:19):
Coincidentally my birthday and the six month anniversary of my little DJ podcast, Club Kerry NYC, occurs on June 16. So on this occasion I have taken the best of two mixes that were in production and combined them into this body rockin' birthday mix. If you have never downloaded one of my sets then this is the one you want to start with. All of these tunes are favorites right now and I simply do not know which is my fave. It has a number of the components I enjoy such as The Freemason's, Digital Dog, a good remake in Straight Up, Ladyhawke, Lifelike, male and female vocals, uplifting beats, good melodies, and of course some great mixing. Look for a best of mix in a few weeks. Have a tune from the last few months to suggest for the upcoming best of mix? Then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!
Choice Lyric from track #6, Change Your Mind by Sunlounger:
when you kiss me, it feels so real then the daylight comes, off you run, and i don’t know how to feel there’s a fire underneath your skin but it’s getting old, out here in the cold, ’cause you won’t let me in
when you hold me, i can hear your heart beating loud and clear, without fear, but you chose a moment that we part
you and i could fly, baby we could be so high if you just let go but you’re too busy keeping two feet on the ground and keeping one hand on the door
when you change your mind you know where to find me
The set list (63:45):
I've been listening to this set while jogging and running in Central Park. It's full of energy, ups & downs, and some outstanding melodies. You will be hooked from the onset at the piano intro cause "I wouldn't stop it if I could" (track #1, Love Takes Over by David Guetta featuring Kelly Rowland). My favorite track (#3) at the moment is Falling Anthem (Bad Boy Bill Extended Mix) featuring Alyssa Palmer while the best Pussycat Dolls i've heard in quite some time with I Hate This Part (Dave Aude Club Mix, track #6), a soring trance in Undo the Silence (David Forbes Remix) by Pulser (track #7) and the uplifting second fave tune in Forgiveness by Wamdue Project featuring Jonathan (track #10) (see lyrics below).
I guess I like a good remake yet again and Teardrops by Diamond Cut (track #4) fill that need. Not to mention something old can be something new in a new mix of the September tune Can't Get Over by Figoboy (track #2).
Also don't miss Not Alone (Deadmau5 Remix) by Gianluca Motta Featuring Molly. Deadmau5 is among my fave dj/producers and is often imitated. This particular track may be about a year old but I'm happy to finally find a place for it in one of my sets. Enjoy!
Choice Lyric: "My 'Angry Mode': it comes and it goes... though it is a mystery why I act so out of control as to let my emotions get the best of me. I can't help it; can't deny it. There is anger; won't try to hide it. Got to burn it; set it on fire. Ashes blowin' in the sky and I wonder why...
I want to love you; dunno know if I can. I want to give you one more chance. Forgiveness: it comes so slow..." - Forgiveness by Wamdue Project featuring Jonathan Mendelsohn (track #10)
Set List (65:31):
It's only been two weeks since the last set upload "NYC is Burning" which is still burning up my ears. But I couldn't hold onto this new set for much longer. Your shoes will be tapping or rather dancing to the sound of this set (Shoes by Tiga, track #2). And just who is that uncredited female voice talking on this track? Hmmm. Nobody seems to know for sure. This track is about '4 minutes' long, just plain fun and 'hard candy' to your ears. More like this please, Madge and Tiga. The Hard(ly) Candy phase is over!
The Freemasons return with Sophie Ellis-Bexter on my fave tune of this moment with a leaked edit of Heartbreak Make Me A Dancer (track #4). I understand it sees a proper release very soon. A summer anthem I predict. I look forward to the remixes. In the mean time, enjoy my little extended version.
Digital Dog shows up yet again on my playlist. Brits Steve Cornish and Nick Mace make up Digital Dog and are one of those rare DJ/producers that can take an okay song and turn it into greatness. Another case in point: Chemistry by Velvet (track #5).
A great song does not always have to have vocals. Miami to Altanta by Pryda (Track #8) is a bit more progressive than what is on most of my sets but is so good. Give it a chance. I decided to keep the progressive sounds coming for the next few minutes with lots of energy until the all too fun neo-disco closer The Bitch is Back by Warren Clarke (Track #12). You may find yourself wanting more so just press repeat. Enjoy!
"Can you stay up for the weekend and blame god for looking too old
can find all that you stand for has been replaced with mountains of gold
you cannot dream yourself to notice to feel pain and swallow fear
but can you stay up for the weekend for next year
God i can’t do this any more though ill be laid down on the floor as many feet walk through the door
I’m not alone"
(Insert Poynter Pump dance move now! My friends will get it.) I'm Not Alone - Calvin Harris (track #1)
