Discotex - I Can Cast A Spell (Video 2001)

I checked YouTube lately for videos of my favourite songs and i wondered that some were missing, like this one: Discotex pres. Cloudburst - I can cast a spell from 2000/2001. This tune was a big hit in the clubs worldwide and in Germany of course. It was produced by the people behind Full Intention.

The first version (which was played in the clubs) came out with an original sample from Chaka Khan's "I'm every woman". Later, Shena sung the vocals for the offical release, this was one of her very first big hits.

So, i put the video in, click and enjoy it:

After a while i choosed to pick again some tunes for the Revisited House series. Volume 3 will show you some of the hottest club tracks around the year 2000 that were played at peaktime hours.

Blog success / Hercules DJ Console RMX

I am pretty amazed about the success of my blog! =:o) Within two months the blog got Pagerank 3 by Google, and wouldn't that be great enough, i got over 500 downloads of my mixes so far as well as great feedback on the music i am selecting.

I am still working on linking my blog on other sites and directories, lately i got many visitor though "Stumple Upon", great site! Please bookmark my blog where ever you like and visit it regularly ;-)

Yesterday i finally got my new mixer, the Hercules DJ Console RMX, it makes a lot of fun mixing and playing with it. But i am still unsure, if the Virtual DJ software is as good as Traktor or Final Scratch, regarding the sound quality. What do you think? Drop me a line...

The Latin Hustle Vol. 1 - Latin-House Party Anthems

The years 2003-2004 have been the best in my eyes for the Latin-House genre. Most of my favourite songs came out in these years. Starting with Volume 1, "The Latin Hustle" series brings you some of the best latin Party Anthems you can't miss. You may know some of these, but i guarantee you, i put in some sensational tunes which haven't been recognized by the masses (yet). Electro Blues' Mia Mao Minha Gente for example reminds me a lot of my holidays in Sicily where this tune has been a massive party hit in the clubs.

Mixing latin tunes isn't always that easy, so i hope you'll ignore some minor mixing difficulties ;-)
I promise, this mix will make you hustle from start 'till end, 77 minutes of pure latin madness! Check this out...

1. Aguero - Malembe (Mix2Inside Mix)
