DJ Cruze Podcast Episode #44 - Better Days - October 2008

Episode #44 of the DJ Cruze Podcast has come a few days later than I promised. Sorry about that. I had a throat infection last week and sounded like a bad Barry White impersonator. I’m sure you’d have pulled your earphones out of your ears had you heard a podcast with that voice on it. So better late than never we’ve got episode #44 of the podcast with plenty of funky and chunky tunes for your listening pleasure!

Kicking off the show we’ve got some electro house fun from Spencer and Hill followed by a great new track from Dave Spoon and Funkagenda. Plenty of synth basslines and some lovely piano and strings. Then we’ve got a great new remix of The Shapeshifter’s classic “Lola’s Theme”. They’ve taken it into the electro house realm with their 2008 re-edit but I still think it works well.

We’ve also got a few remixes of old classics from Shakedown and Toni Di Bart, both of which still keep the original vibe but with 2008 production values. Lovely! Ending the show we’ve got a killer Cruze Classic from Jimi Polo with “Better Days”. It’s a wicked remix by Sasha, back when he used to make piano tunes rather than his progressive sound of today. An awesome track which I have caned for years! Enjoy!

If you enjoy the show then get in touch and tell me what you think or want a shout out. Also, why not consider donating some money so that I can cover the costs of producing the show. 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.

Sorry about this but after having a throat infection last week I’m in no fit state to get tonight’s podcast done. I don’t think you want to hear me croaking the shout-outs!

Hopefully I’ll be feeling better tomorrow and I’ll try and get it finished by Wednesday or Thursday this week. I feel bad as I want to keep a schedule but it’ll sound terrible if I do it now!
