It's been awhile since I made some house or techno house compilation. Not only I enjoy myself too much with 80's and 90's classic disco, but I notice there are so many house mixes around (check out my affiliates!). Whenever I wanna listen to them, all I have to do is just download from their sites.

But the problem with listening to others mixes is that: not all the songs in their mix are my favourites... Hue he he... Moreover, I cannot control "the energy" flowing from songs to songs. I personally don't like those compilation with the energy flow going: up and down... up and down from song to song... I know this is only a matter of preference.

One of most time consuming part in making my compilation is to arrange the playlist: songs selection from the library, play them and decide if they fit in the energy flow that I want to deliver in the mix... and then the most interesting part: deciding who should go before and after them. :)

Anyway, enough bla bla blaa... The uploads are done. Enjoy the compilation!!!

It's been awhile since my sister asked me to mix songs from her BodyJam classes at the gym: Where's Your Head At, Finally and When You Touch Me. Then, to find out which remixes they use in the class, I joined her for the class :P

The music was playing out loud, and the atmosphere was really hot and vibrating. Somehow I sensed that these music are delivering a totally different vibes to the normal house techno I usually mix in my Spotlight series. So instead of making another Spotlight, I've decided to specially mix a series of Electro House.

I've been gathering some Electro tracks these few days, and finally selected 12 of them for this compilation. It's amazing to see how creative people are in re-making these classic tunes to match the current trends.

Well, I've done my part! Now it's your turn... TURN UP THAT VOLUME TO THE MAX!!! ;)

Love Potion #2

When a friend asked me to mix slow songs, I thought the idea was absurd. Why would people mix slow songs? By "mixing", I mean matching these songs beat to beat, not just fade-in and fade-out at the end of every songs like most radios do. Furthermore, many slow songs run on different 'beat style'.

But learning that every songs are running on 'four-beat-bars rule', then this rule must also apply to slow songs which mean they are also "mixable". The challenge is to 'identify' the first beat and then start counting: 1.. 2.. 3.. 4.. Sounds easy, huh? Well, it's not! Becoz many slow songs aren't running with beats in the earlier part of the track.

The next step is by listening to others how they do it and learn their tricks. Check out my affiliates here cause there are lots of great mixtapes going on in their blogs!

So here is the result... my first slowmix. Hope you like them, cause I really enjoy making them. There are certainly more to come in the future.

The Roaring 90's

These are the songs that had been 'roaring' my Uni days in early 90's. Mixing and listening to them now certainly bring back a lot of sweet memories. Enjoy!!!
