And finally the podcast appeared! Amazing!

Here is episode #29 of the DJ Cruze podcast and it has been a long time coming, I know, I know! I’ve been whizzing down the mountain in sunny (and snowy) Sainte Foy in the French Alps. I then came home and took my lovely wife Clare off to Prague for a few days of sight seeing, beer drinking (…that was mainly me!) and good, cheap food eating fun! So now that I’m back I’ve had to catch up and find some time to get the DJ Cruze podcast sorted. So here it is.

There are loads of great tunes on this episdode. The new D Ramirez remix of the old Brand New Heavies vocalist N’Dea Davenport kicks off the show and it rocks! A nice chunky bassline leads us into the funky sounds of up and coming producer Jay Cox followed by a cheeky bootleg from a great Italian producer, Alex Gaudino. Then there’s my big tune of the moment from Does It Offend You, Yeah? who are the biggest thing to hit dirty house music since Daft Punk. I’m looking forward to hearing their album when it comes out after hearing Battle Royale! When then head through loads more funky house and dirty electro until we hit one of my favourite old tunes – the Perfecto mix of “Mr Wendall” by Arrested Development. Talk about a massive tune! I hope all of these hot tunes make up for the lack of a podcast over the past month.

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.

    Looks like I’ve got a few problems though as the podcast feed isn’t being formed properly. I’m trying to fix it now but I don’t know what’s wrong!

  8. Perfect! I’ve got a commute to a meeting this afternoon so I’ll whack this on the SiPod to get me in a good mood for what is inevitably going to be a boring and horrid meeting.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one affected by the Dreamhost Crash. Naughty boys. Surely we’re owed a bit more bandwidth for the troubles.

  9. ooo lovin it, download was pretty quick this time to. Will do nicely for next week on the piste πŸ˜‰

    Keep up the good work.

    Stay safe


  10. One Phat DJ (or Si #1!) – I hope you’ve managed to download it mate. Can Dreamhost actually give us any more bandwidth mate? πŸ˜‰ Hopefully it is fixed now.

    Si #2 – You’ve managed to download it? Great news! That means that hopefully the problems have gone. Server maintainence and 1am in the morning isn’t my idea of fun! Enjoy the snowboarding mate.

  18. Oh yeah, baby…. Blisters on my eardrums from all the scorching tunes!

    Keep up the philthy jagged saw-toothed basslines!

  19. O Cruze this mix rocks hard. Yes s-hir these tunes will serve as the fire behind my very aggressive gaming lifestyle. Please keep this up or as we’d say ’round here in the Cinci area, “Go Hard or Go Home!” its agreed u go hard and ur mixes are wicked.

    DJ Cruze rocks tha house! So other house podcasts need to, “lay down or stay down.” Its the way of the Land.

    – Alex

  31. Thanks for your kind words Alex (the different one!)
    Glad you’re loving the tunes.

  32. Great music DJCruze πŸ™‚
    Can somebody tell my what’s the name of last song (Dirty house…)?

  33. Sosna – The tracklisting is at the top of this page.

    The last dirty house track was “The Bump (Original Mix)” by Hook n Sling & Kid Kenobi on CR2 Records. The very last record was “Mr Wendal (Perfecto Mix)” by Arrested Development on Cooltempo but I assume that’s not the track you mean.

  34. πŸ™‚ thx a lot πŸ™‚
    I started listening your podcasts 1 week ago and I’m in love…
    Earlier I’ve listened Techno and Trance but now House & Club and that make the hairs on my arm stand up.

    Greetings from Poland πŸ™‚

  35. No problems. I’m glad you like the shows. Download the old ones from this website if you haven’t got them in the podcast RSS feed (as it only has the latest 10 shows).

    I’m not a big fan of trance but I don’t mind some techno from time to time. I’m glad you’ve found house music and are enjoying the tunes.

  36. haha… Love Mr Wendal! πŸ™‚ It just kicks me back to the 90’s πŸ™‚
