Podcasts : Episode #8 – Best of 2005 Mix

 Saturday, December 31st 2005, 8:00 am

Here it is. The one you have been waiting for. Episode 8 of the DJ Cruze podcast otherwise known as “The Best of 2005 Mix”.
I’ve got together my favourite tunes from 2005 and stuck them in a bite-sized downloadable MP3 for your listening pleasure. How good is that?

It’s a bit longer than normal and comes in at 73 minutes and 30 seconds. A nice fit for a CD if you want to listen to it in the car. Hopefully it won’t break my bandwidth limits too much!

Here is the tracklisting for this week’s show:

I’d like to thank you all for your support and love over the past few months. I’ve made lots of new friends from around the world and I’m looking forward to rocking your floors soon. I’d especially like to thank Bodo in Germany who has been hosting all of the MP3s for the past few months. Check out his web services here.

News : Merry Christmas!

 Sunday, December 25th 2005, 7:00 am

I just like to wish all of the readers of the website and the listeners of the podcast a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or happy holidays for whatever you celebrate!

Thanks for coming to the website and for supporting the DJ Cruze podcast over the past 5 months. Everyone out there has been amazing and I ‘ve had a fantastic response. I hope you will all carry on listening in 2006 and I hope I’m making your journey to work or school, your pre-club warm-up or your post-club chillout a bit more funky! Thanks also to anyone who has been to my gigs and all of the producers who have sent me new tracks to play for you all.

I’m looking forward to a long and prosperous 2006 and I wish it upon every one of you too. Hopefully I’ll have some of my own tracks to play you as I’m getting busy in the studio over Christmas. These will be available to DJs to play out in clubs so get in touch if you want them.

Manchester is most definitely in the house!

Charts : Chart: Best of 2005

 Saturday, December 24th 2005, 10:00 am

Most of you are aware that I create a chart of my big tunes every week and I post them here on the website. I actually track my chart each week to keep an eye on the hot tunes of the year and using some custom written software, I can now give you my “best of 2005” chart.

The postition of each track is based upon the chart position of each tune in my chart and the duration it stayed in my top 20 tunes. The list below is only the top 50 tunes but if anyone is interested I will post a list of all the tunes that I have been playing throughout the year.

News : DJ Vuish in the Loft Club

 Wednesday, December 7th 2005, 10:00 pm

I’ve been asked this question many times since we announced that DJ Vuish will be returning to DJ’ing in Germany:

Is DJ Vuish going to turn up this time?

The answer is most definitely:

YES!!!

The other times he hasn’t turned up when flyers have said he was going to were either:

  • False advertising on flyers for clubs. I hate it when this happens. People seem to think they can use the “Cruze & Vuish” name to try and get more people to come to club when only I was ever booked.
  • Unforseen circumstances. Unfortunately some bad things happened to Mr. Vuish and he had to cancel a gig or two.

This time he will be in the Loft Club. He has definitely booked the flights. He has definitely got some tunes. He is definitely getting ready to party. He is definitely a handsome beast. Ooops, Freudian slip…

So be there on 7th January 2006 and party with us both!

News : Podcast delay

 Wednesday, December 7th 2005, 12:43 pm

Sorry guys and girls but the podcast is probably going to be delayed until tomorrow (Thursday) night. As you have probably read in the previous posts, I was in Germany at the weekend so I didn’t get to do the show as normal on Saturday or Sunday. I’ve almost finished it but I need to produce it properly so it doesn’t hurt your ears. Hopefully I’ll get it done tonight but it will more than likely be online tomorrow. Hopefully you’ll wait for another day! It will have lots of great new tunes on it and of course, a Cruze classic. So come back tomorrow and it’ll be online.
