Soulful House Vol. 24

So, let's get back to where we started from! I decided to put some classic Soulful House Mixes up in the next time beginning with this one.

The Soulful House genre came up in 1999 / 2000 when it developed from Vocal House and Garage House. Some of the pioneers were Mousse T., Boris Dlugosch, Urban Blues Project aka Jazz-N-Groove, Groove Junkies, Audiowhores, Pound Boys, Deep Swing and many more.

Some of these tracks are still only available on vinyl. Enjoy the selection.

Tracklist:
1. Willy Washington - What Will I Do
2. Kiko Navarro - The Perfect Place (Original Mix)
3. Sunkids feat. Chance - Rescue Me (Masters at Work Magic Session Mix)
4. DJ Rork feat. Lady Bird - Stay Around (Vocal Mix)

Research on digital piracy

Hey guys, this is Discotizer asking you to contribute in a research for a good purpose. A good friend of mine is doing a non-commercial research in the field of digital piracy. Now guess what, you've been invited to contribute (anonymously) to it.

Calm down, I'm not assuming that you're pirates or involved in something illegal. But what I'm saying is that this is your opportunity to tell the world what you're really thinking about digital piracy.

Please take the German suvery or English survey - or just drop an e-mail with your feedback. If you like to contribute by e-mail just answer the following questions as honest as you can (english or german):
  • What do you think motivates people to offer digital content for download?
    1. From disputable origin (e.g., releases of warez groups)
    2. Unauthorized (e.g. bought, but copy-protected because of intellectual property)
    3. For the mass (e.g. via file sharing)
  • What do you think are the attitudes behind these actions?
  • Where do you come from (Continent / State City or rural area) and how old are you?
There is no right or wrong answer, just your opinion.

Aretha Franklin - Respect (Discotizer's Jacked Up Remix)

You all know this classic - i hadn't heared the full song in a long time. Then i did last week and i knew i had to do this.
I checked the internet but wasn't satisfied with any of the remixes i heared - i wanted a version that stays true to the original and which you can drop in House sets.

This won't be available for download - i did it just for my sets. But follow me on Soundcloud to get notified, maybe i'll open downloads for some hours one day ;-)

Virtual DJ vs Traktor and the Limiter

Okay, after posting so many mixes lately, it's time for some technical stuff for you DJs out there.

Virtual DJ Pro and Traktor Pro are (along with Serato) the most professional DJ software - some like VDJ but most of my friend DJs prefer Traktor. Most say it looks very professional and because of NI's extra hardware for DJs.
I've used VDJ for over two years now and i'm very satisfied with it, i love the paralell waveforms Traktor misses. I've used it for a lot of gigs and it has never crashed so far. With version 7 it's a pretty good DJ software now. But so is Traktor Pro 1.2 or in version 2.

Don't listen to people that say VDJ's sound engine is crappy, when it comes to sound quality both programs are damn good. Except of one thing: The build-in limiter.

Traktor provides a build-in limiter, which is activated by default. So let's see what it does. For this little test i mixed two tracks into another without fading the bass of the track, so they overlap while mixing.


As you can see below the peak level rises in transition from -3db (average) to -1,5db. Mixing done with Virtual DJ (no limiter).


Mixing with Traktor Pro (no limiter):

Mixing with Traktor Pro and active limiter:
As you can see on the last screen, with active limiter Traktor limits the output level all the time at about -3db (in this case here). This is how it should be, especially if you play your music on a big sound system.

There's no difference whether you record your mix directly in VDJ / Traktor or through an external soundcard (unless the external card provides sound limiting or compression).
You can minimize the effect in Virtual DJ by killing the bass of the track you're fading in and switch the fader at one certain point.

It's one of my all-time favourite Disco-House tracks: Foreal People's Discotizer, produced by Joey Negro.

I bet that some of you have just discovered this genre through Armand van Helden's latest Disco-House project Duck Sauce. Well, this kinda sound - dominated by happy Disco samples and lots of filters - had its peaktime already about 12 years ago! Yes Baby, it rocked the floor like you dont know.

6. Studio 45 - Freak It! (Original Mix)
7. Big Ron - Let The Freak (Orginal 12" Edit)
8. The Rurals - Corker (Noferini Remix B1)
9. Phunkie Souls - Feel Alright Babe
10. Kid Batchelor & Marcel Krieg - Spring Affair (Tom Lorenz Remix)
11. Denniz - No Can Do (Original Mix)
12. Sounds Of Life - Feel Good (Original Mix)
13. Phats & Small - Tonite (Original 12" Mix)
14. PJ - Happy Days (Original Version)
