Yes, it’s been awfully quiet on the DJ Cruze website recently hasn’t it? I thought 2008 would be the year of more than 1 post per week but so far I’ve been wrong. Sorry about that.

So what’s been going on then? Well, I’ve been struck down by the winter vomiting bug not once but twice in the past month so that has wasted a week of my life. Aren’t viruses annoying?

Other than that I’ve been sorting out a new gig in Germany which is on the 23rd February 2008. I’ve been hassling the promoter for the details and flyer for the gig but he’s being slack so I’ll post the details when I get them. I think the gig is in Sinsheim but I’m not 100% sure! It’ll be an old school, retro night full of the funky old tunes from the early to mid 90s so expect plenty of madness and scratching! Remember the good old days in Vibration! 🙂

I’ve also been hitting the studio pretty hard as I’ve got lots of projects that I’m working on. Firstly, I’m going to be having a full release of my “Cease” track from a few years ago but it’s getting a bit of a 2008 remake. Gone is the St. Etienne vocal sample and instead we have some wicked female vocals. The vocal isn’t finalised yet but it’s sounding great. I’m going to give the production a re-rub to bring it into 2008 and with any luck it should be out in February or March on Metrogroove Records. It’ll feature a funk-filled remix from World Of Colour and probably another, as yet undecided, remix from an up and coming producer.

And talking of World of Colour, I’ve just finished a remix for their new track “Change” and it’s sounding damn funky! I’ll be playing it on the new podcast which should turn up in your podcatcher this week so look out for it. With a fantastic vocal, funky bassline and a big string breakdown, the Funkfinders remix is going to sound great on any dancefloor.

Finally, I’ve been creating a dirty electro remix for my good friend, and fellow DJ, Alex Harmony’s new tech house track “Nayati”. You can check out his version on his myspace page. The Funkfinders mix is a slab of deep, dark and dirty dancefloor madness and I’ll be giving you a sneak preview of it on a future podcast.

So watch this space for details of the Germany gig and episode #37 of the DJ Cruze podcast should appear at the weekend.
