News : What’s going on Mekon?

You might have noticed that the website hasn’t really been updated much over the past couple of months so I just thought I’d let you know what’s happening with DJ Cruze. On Sunday 13th August I’m marrying the lovely Clare, the sexy voiced lady who you hear doing the voiceovers. Understandably life has been a bit hectic as we’ve had a lot to organise so I’ve not had as much time to do mixes, podcasts and productions on the site. I hope you all understand!

This means that podcast is on hold until September when I return from my honeymoon. But maybe if you keep your eye on your podcatching software you might find a special something while I’m away! Also, I’ll be posting a few mixes online while I’m away so keep coming back to the site for news on those. I should have time to post a twisted electro mix and also an old school mix from 1994. Just click on mixes at the top of the screen and you’ll see any new ones as they arrive.

In September I’ll be back and then you’ll have a house music overload I’m sure. More mixes, more podcasts and plenty of DJ Cruze productions. The Funkfinders are back in the studio and we’ve got some hot tunes and remixes to get out of the door. Stay tuned for more info!

So for the next three weeks I’ll say aloha as I look forward to marrying the beautiful Clare and to enjoying our honeymoon in Hawaii together. That’s if we manage to leave the airport of course! Fingers crossed they open our airports before next Tuesday.

News : Some confusion

This is just a quck post to clarify something on my website. It seems that a lot of people think that my weekly chart is a tracklisting for a new podcast or mix that they have missed. Sorry but it isn’t! I have a weekly chart on my site to let people know which tunes are hot at the moment and also to allow me to promote new music that people should try and find. Hopefully it encourages you all to dig around and listen to new music that you might like.

So sorry if I’m confusing people but you’ll only find downloadable content by clicking podcasts, mixes or productions at the top of the page. If you’re subscribed to my podcast then as soon as post a new one you’ll see it in your podcatching software (e.g. iTunes, Juice etc.) The new podcast will be online in September as promised once I get back from my honeymoon. But then again, I might have a suprise for you while I’m away. Watch your podcatcher!
