Finally episode #23 of the DJ Cruze podcast arrives at your door like an old friend. Sorry that it took a bit longer than it should have done. I sorted the mix out a few days ago and wanted to master it (so that it sounds nice for you all) like I always do. And then yet again my old PC crashed. So I’ve spent the last few hours trying to save the podcast and thankfully I’ve sorted it out. Fingers crossed that it will last a bit longer until I’ve copied all of my data over to my external hard drive.

Anyway, there are plenty more funky tunes on this week’s podcast. You’ll find some funky remixes by some superstars such as Justin Timberlake and Madonna. Yes, I know they’re commercial but when you’ve got the likes of Axwell remixing them does it really matter? They’ve got amazing vocalists and that’s what counts. I’ve also got an old favourite from Tall Paul which has had a fresh 2006 remix from the Rhythm Masters and also a great remix of the Sugarbabes by the ever consistent Seamus Haji. What more could you ask for? Album art you say? Well hopefully this show has album art. I won’t know whether it has worked until it’s on my iPod but fingers crossed. If it doesn’t then I’ll have to find another way. Do people really want AAC files rather than MP3s so that they’re iPod friendly? I don’t think so but maybe you guys want that. Let me know in the comments section.

Update: Yes, the image worked in iTunes and on my iPod! I need to play about with it a bit to get the correct size but at least the test worked. Please let me know if it works in other podcatchers.

Don’t forget to rate this podcast so I know what you like and don’t like. Run your mouse over the stars underneath the title of this podcast and it allows you to rate it. If you like it then give me a big phat 10. If it’s terrible then give it a 1. Go on… you know you want to vote!

As always I love to hear your feed back on the show. Contact me using the form provided and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. I’m always looking for new tunes to play on the show so if you’re an up and coming producer who’s looking for some exposure then let me know and if I like the tunes, I’ll play them.

Here is the tracklisting for the show:

News : Nelly Furtado Remix

 Tuesday, October 17th 2006, 10:58 pm

Nelly Furtado Maneater

Ok, I’ll have to admit it. I’m a stupid idiot.

Lots of people have been emailing me saying that they’re having problems downloading my remix of Nelly Furtado’s “Maneater”.

“Just click on ‘productions’ at the top of the website and you’ll find it”, I said.
“But it’s not there!”, said everyone else.
“But it IS there!”, I protested.

Finally I’ve tracked down the problem and it was me being foolish! WordPress has a feature which allows you to post private blog posts so that only users with admin rights are allowed to see them. For some reason I had set the post to be private so it meant that only I could see it and everyone else couldn’t! Doh! So I’ve changed it now and if you click on productions you can now find the remix straight away. I’m glad that one’s sorted.

What I’d really like to know though is how I managed to clock up over 20,000 downloads when I wasn’t directly linking to the tune on the site!? The power of the internet and the many MP3 spiders I think. I’d better get back in the studio and do another remix or tune too. I have the itch to create some funky house music…

Back again? And within two weeks (…well, almost two weeks!)? That can’t be happening can it? Amazingly, episode #22 of the DJ Cruze podcast is live and it’s a corker! A little mellower than the last episode, it’s back to the funky style that you know and love.

There are some great tunes on this episode. Check out the reggae stylings of Lucky 7’s “Why?”. It’s by an unknown producer, well I’ve not been told who it is anyway. Could it be Olav Basoski in another guise? There’s a great new remix of “Believe” by Ministers De La Funk on the massive Italian label Oxyd. Big thanks to Davide for sending it to me.

News : Mindflipping House at The Loft Club

 Tuesday, October 3rd 2006, 12:30 pm

DJ Cruze is rocking the house!

What a night we had at The Loft Club on Saturday night! Did the party rock or what?

Thanks to everyone who came down to see us play. The gig was fantastic and from the reaction we received I think that you guys enjoyed it too. Big love to both the birthday boy Alex Harmony and to our main man Luke45 who wined and dined us on Saturday evening. They also rocked the feet of the party people in the Loft. It was a fantastic night!

Big tunes of the night for me had to be Fedde Le Grand “Put Your Hands Up For Detroit (TV Rock & Dirty South Melbourne Militia Mix)”, Spiller’s “Jumbo”, DJ Jose “Stepping To The Beat (Dave McDonald Mix)” and of course Energy 52 “Cafe Del Mar (Raul Rincon Mix)”.
