DJ Cruze July 2008 Mix - Ibiza Sunset

It’s been an awfully long time since I put a new mix onto my site so I managed to grab a couple of hours the other night and thought I’d do a new mix ready for my trip to Ibiza on Saturday. I’m off on a stag/bachelor weekend with some of the guys from Manchester and because the stag, Will, is a big fan of progressive house I thought I’d do a deep, dark and progressive mix for us to play while we’re out there. Obviously I thought you guys might like it too so here it is! I must warn you that it’s not my normal style and it gets a bit dark and twisted! It runs a fine line between electro, progressive and tech house but it’ll definitely get you in the mood for going out!

The mix kicks of with the king of electro house music, Mr. Eric Prydz and his homage to a Stockholm club called “F12” (…well, having just read an interview with him where he says it’s a favourite club of his, I’m assuming that’s why.) We’ve then got an exclusive tune from a soon-to-be-famous-I-hope Dutch producer Duart Jansen called “2 Cowboys” which is absolutely rocking. Then we head through a wicked Deamau5 remix of Mike Di Scala and on to a tough, jacking remix of Dave Spoon’s “88” by Mark Knight and Funkagenda.

Up next is another cheeky tune which is unfortunately doing the rounds on the internet but is too good not to play. I’m hoping Eric Prydz releases “Fabric Test” (which I assume was a test tune when he was playing at Fabric!) so that I can buy it but it doesn’t seem to be turning up on any of the legal download sites. It’s a wicked dark, electro track will sound huge in a club. I’ve then got a fantastic new electro house version of one of my favourite trance tracks, Three Drives – “Greece 2000”. Following that is an exclusive remix by the Funkfinders, otherwise known as DJ Cruze (yes, me!), on Alex Harmony’s “Nayati”. It’s a tougher remix than I’d normally do but I wanted to do something a bit different. It’s got chunky beats, a full on bassline and some massively crushed strings. Hope you like it! I’ll speak to Alex and hopefully I can put it on my website for you to download as it hasn’t been included in the final release. Let me know in the comments if you’d like to download it.

Moving on from my remix we’ve got a killer Deadmau5 sounding track from Dobenbeck and then onto Axwell’s Remode version of Adele’s “Hometown Glory”. I know I just played it on the last podcast but I love the pianos in it so I couldn’t help but put this version in the mix. Seemlessly mixing into that we’ve got “555” from the other members of the Swedish House Mafia, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso. This track almost has a techno feel to it but I think it’s just the right side of funky electro house for my taste. Finally we’ve got a massive breakdown with EDX’s “Premiumline” and onto the a jacking new tune by David Amo and Julio Navas called “La Sagrada Familia”. It’s a really simple track but it has that Fedde Le Grande “Put Your Hands Up” vibe about it. A future electro house classic perhaps?

If you enjoy the mix then get in touch and tell me what you think. Also, why not consider donating some money so that I can cover the costs of producing the podcasts and mixes. With the amount of downloads I have, it’s not cheap! And finally, don’t forget to comment on the show below and tell me what you think.

    @Florian: No probs mate. The Jägerbombs are going to be hardcore! 🙂

    @Lisa – Thanks. Check out the other mixes and podcasts if you haven’t already.

  13. great pod,the tracks are awesome,let me dance

    nice weekend pete

  14. Definitely a bit different sound but awesome as always, definitely get the Alex Harmony track w/ your mix on the site.

  15. Always refreshing to see something different on the site. I enjoyed this one, although I’m not sure that describing “La Sagrada Familia” as the next “Put Your Hands Up For Detroit” would necessarily be a compliment. 😛

  16. @Pete – Thanks mate! Now get dancing! 😉

    @Nick – I’ll check it’s ok with Alex and then put it on the site for you.

    @Poison Monkey – “Put Your Hands Up…” was a big tune mate, whether you liked it or not. Just because it was commercially succesful doesn’t make it a bad tune.

  17. ..hey mate,

    Ibiza was rocking for you??you are at home??

  18. Yes mate. We had a fantastic time. Will probably blog about it when my mind is working again! Haha! 😉

  19. too much Jägerbombs and beer?? 🙂

  20. We couldn’t find anywhere that would serve Jägerbombs! I only had two Jägermeisters the whole time I was there! But yes, plenty of beer.

  21. Hey Mark, Thanx for including my track in your mix, i have more new stuff coming up soon, also some exclusive promo’s… ( even tracks including vocals…)
