Club and Tech-House Vol. 1

I know you guys like it ruff rough and progressive sometimes. Me too :-)

So i randomly selected some of my fave tracks of this genre and did a Club- and Tech-House Mix flavoured with some Dark-House / Twisted Disco and Electro.

I guess you will know (more or less) most of these tracks, but i promise you there are no fillers in this set!

Starting with some commercial happy summer hits from last year, the Mix gets more physical with ATFC's 10-year Re-Edit of his big hit "Bad Habit", still one of my all time favourites. The Mac Project did a very good Cover of Gusto's "Disco Revenge", arranged with new vocals. Later on there's a feature of the bulgarian act "Planet Magic Live" (dudes check out the video). Very hard to find this song, so check it out!

The Mix closes with DJ Spens amazing "Wild West" Mix of Teddy Douglas' "Whatcha Gonna Do" and the Soul Survivors stand up for bringing back the good ol' times, where "Music was my L.O.V.E".

1. Alex Romano - Madnezz (Original Mix)
2. Yves Larock - Bucovina (Alex Astero Reggae Bootleg)
3. Till West & Eddie Thoneick - Hi 'n Bye (Quitarra Mix)
4. Peter Luts and Basto - On My Own (Original Mix)
5. ATFC feat. Lisa Millett - Bad Habit 2009 (ATFC's Classic Re-Mixed)
6. The Mac Project feat. Therese - Another Love (Pitron And Sanna Remix)
7. Paul Johnson - Get Down (Laidback Luke Remix)
8. Paul Harris, Dave Spoon & Sam Obernik - Baditude (Club Mix)
9. Sandy Rivera - I Can't Stop (The Lat Rat's Dubbin' Wit Sandy)

11 years ago: Speed Garage

Lately, i've been thinking about the music that was played eleven years ago: Speed Garage. This hype swapped over the channel to Europe in 1998.

I remember the first tracks i heared. It was Armand van Helden's Remix of Tori Amos' track Professional Widow and Sneaker Pimps' Spin Spin Sugar. Followed soon by Todd Terry's Something Goin' on, Lisa Stansfield's The Line or, one of my favourites, Gisele Jackson's Love Commandments, of course talkin' about the Remixes from Loop da Loop. Some other great tunes, i still love them, are De'Lacy's Hideaway, Gunman from 187 Lockdown and Sound Bwoy Burial from Gant. Les Indiscretes (moniker of Olav Basoski) did some decent tunes too, another oustanding track for me is A vs B - Ripped in 2 Minutes.

A track that i strongly recommend and still love to play is: The Funk Junkeez (a moniker of Roger Sanchez) with Got Funk? (Heavy on da Bass Mix). Check it out!

Update May 2009: I finally did a Speed Garage Classics Mix, grab it now!

DJ Meme Orchestra - Any Love

Since ever i loved Chaka Khan's "Any love" (video) from 1979, one of her less known tracks. Over the years it has been remixed often, sometimes good, sometimes average, sometimes poor. Absolutely great voice and lyrics.
Some years ago DJ Memê became one of my favourite producers / remixers of this time. He did some excellent remixes like Fish Go Deep's "The Cure & The Cause", Panevino's "The Best of Me" or Groove Junkies' "Dr. Feelgood". I simply love his philly-styled Disco-Orchestra Sound.

Now guess what happened? Right. DJ Memê did a Re-Edit of Chaka Khan's classic. The tune is to be released soon, some promo videos are available on YouTube (below). But very spectacular is also the Making Of Clip to this track, esp. the second half. More, more, more of this stuff please! Check this out!
