So as promised on podcast #19, here is an electro mix for you. I actually managed to do the mix before I got married but didn’t have time to upload it! I thought I’d do something a bit different for you this time and do a twisted electro-house mix. I’ve picked up a few dirty tracks, remixes and dubs that I thought went well together so here you go. It’s not my normal style of music as I normally play the funkier side of house music. Some of the tunes I am playing now are heading in this direction though so I’m sure you’ll love it.

The mix starts off with some fine 80s synth pop from Shena and drops into the dirty groover that is Mark Knight’s “Insatiable”. It then builds up through the massive “Easy” from Germany’s Trick & Kubik, the acid anthem that is Fedde Le Grand’s “Put Your Hands Up For Detroit” (…go on, put your hands up!) and onto the dirty bassline monster that is “Release” by clubland’s golden boy of the moment Chris Lake. Think 2am in the dirtiest club you can think of! It then heads off into dirty disco with Spiller’s “Jumbo”, tracky beats from Switch with his remix of Kelis’ “Bossy” and then through 80s vibes from Jaymo and Hauswerks, Lo-Rider and Michael Gray. We get all international at the end of the mix with the fantastic “Moonlight Party” from Italy’s Fonzerelli and then the French sounds of the Lifelike mix of Geyster’s “Under The Fuse Of Love”.

    cheers Alex

  2. Thanks man.
    But more dubs? You just don’t like vocals Alex! Learn to love them! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    SaSCha

  4. No problems Sascha. I thought I’d try out some tougher sounds and see how it works. You’ll get some more funky mixes soon too!

  5. …and please not not forget the b-side of your old skool mix, Marc. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    We cann’t wait to listen to it!

    Cheers,
    Stefan

  6. DJ Cruze going all Axwell? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sorry, couldn’t resist…
    Then again, why not? I love most of the mix, it’s a nice change. It’s just a sound that has become quite predominant recently, and I’ve grown quite tired of it.
    What the funk? All good.

  7. Stefan F – Yes, yes I know! It’s mastered and waiting to be uploaded but I have to stagger these things otherwise my bandwidth takes a battering! It will appear in the next 2 weeks I promise.

    Dom – Haha! We all have to have a change sometimes mate! It’s actually getting tougher to play funky stuff for me as the sound has changed to an electro sound, especially in Germany. So I like to play the funky stuff and put in a tougher tune too. You have to watch the crowds and see how it goes down.

  8. Hey Marc – just got the download for this mix. I really like it … makes me feel like I should go out clubbing.

  9. Hey Melissa – I’m glad you’re loving it. Go out and get dancing right now! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Can’t get that Geyster/Lifelike track out of my head… sheer beauty. The perfect track to end a night out clubbing and leaving with a smile.

  11. Hi Marc,

    the mix is great! I love it!!! Gimme more ๐Ÿ˜‰

    This tracks rocks: Spiller – Jumbo!! I rewind it very often ๐Ÿ˜‰

    cheers,
    chris

  12. Dom – Yeah, it’s a wicked track isn’t it?
    Chris – I love that Jumbo track too. It’s a crazy, warped disco tune!

    Are you two coming to Loft next week?
    Would be nice to see you both to catch up.

  13. Great mix this! Bit different to your normal stuff but just as enjoyable!

    Love Kelis’ Bossy tune – very cool.

    Good work, so keep it up! I’d love to hear more of this as well as the funkier stuff.

    Cheers,

    Nick

  14. Thanks Nick. Glad you’re liking it mate.
    A new podcast and a funky mix will be online soon so check out the site again soon mate.

  15. Hey Cruze! As always an awesome Episode, this one was a little different from the others, but Yeah I really loved it! I particularly liked this one:Geyster – Under The Fuse Of Love (Lifelike Remix) – Shell Records UK, not better than the others, but this one has a very nice vocal!
    Well, glad to have you back banging the tunes for us, and if you please a SHOUT OUT for your friend from Brazil!

    Take care mate!

  29. Maush sofia/bg,

    Thanks! I’ll be doing another dirty house mix soon so don’t worry! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Cheers,
    Marc

  30. Cruze..my man, nicely done. Just love the atmosphere of the mix and ‘Easy’ just puts my mind into a dark electro frame of mind. Nice work and by personal preference my favourite mix so far.

    salute!
    Seba

  31. Cheers Seba. Glad you’re liking the tune selection. I’ll stick a new dirty house mix online for you soon.

  32. I think this electro mix is wicked, the more dirty bass lines and beats the better and easier it is to party!!!

    MAKE MORE!!and then put them on cd cos my computer is out of date and i cant get any of these mixes youve done, i can only listen when online!

  33. Thanks Steve! Expect some more dirty electro funk soon.

  34. Hei,

  35. Hey Merimell. Just right click on the download button and choose “save as” or “save link as” (depends on your web browser). I’ve tested the link and it works so let me know if you still have problems.
