DJ Cruze Podcast Episode #46 - Sexy Dancer - December 2008

Here is Episode #46 of the DJ Cruze Podcast or “The Christmas Podcast” as it’s sometimes known. It’s a couple of days late due to some Christmas partying but don’t worry, it’s packed full of slamming house beats for you to enjoy while you tuck into your turkey, goose or whatever poultry you might be eating during the festive season.

So what’s on the show this week then? Well, we’ve got some massive house tracks from the past month as always. Kicking off the show is my cheeky Christmas bootleg. In case you don’t know, I’ve made it a tradition to make a house remix of a Christmas track since the first one back in December 2005. What started off as a quick sample and drum loop back with my Nat King Cole bootleg has quickly become a bigger studio project for me. It was tricky to choose the track for this year and it was a toss up between Cliff Richard’s “Miseltoe and Wine” and East 17’s “Stay Another Day” and the latter won (because Cliff’s song is in 3/4 timing and was too tricky to work with! Haha!) I’ve turned this UK Christmas classic that we hear on the radio 24-7 through December, into a pumping electro house track. Hope you enjoy it and I’ll stick it online for you to download in the new year.

Other hot tracks on this show are the new electro house track from Bodyrox and a great new tune from hot Scottish producer Chris Lake called “If You Knew”. Following that we have two absolutely massive tracks. First up it’s the Arias remix of Arno Cost’s new track called “Souvenir”. It’s a blindingly brilliant French production which tears the floor off any club. After that we’ve got the hot new track from Super Mal and Phonat who have come together to give us the massive “Pixelated”. A wicked breakdown and a superb bassline make it a winner for me.

We’ve also got a DJ Cruze exclusive tune from Simone Denny called “Addicted” which has been remixed by my main man Dean Saunders from World Of Colour and Metrogroove records. He’s giving us a great retro-house remix with storming pianos and a great trumpet break. To finish the show I’ve got a superb Cruze Classic from way back in 1994 called “Sexy Dancer” by The Rockford Files. It samples the breakbeat classic “Feel Real Good” by Manix and used to get those hands in the air every time I played it. A brilliant 90s house track which still makes me smile when I hear it today.

Don’t forget that I’ll be back in a week with the “Best of 2008” podcast and then the DJ Cruze podcast returns to its regular schedule in January 2009. I’ll post a list of podcast dates over Christmas so you know what to expect in the new year. So make sure you all have a fantastic Christmas and New Year and the DJ Cruze podcast will be back with plenty of new tunes to rock your iPods and MP3 players. And if you’re buying anyone an iPod for Christmas then make sure you tell them to subscribe to the podcast for some rocking house beats.

  7. hey, Cruze – The Funkfinder ๐Ÿ™‚
    Great mix, and a great christmas remix [discoid, electroid…like them all]
    about Simone Denny – Addicted (World Of Colour Remix), thank you for the name, I have this “Reflex”‘s remix, and it came to me as ” – Addicted [Reflex mix]”, no artist name…
    didn’t find a big difference between Reflex and World of Colour remix, you should probably check Tim Gosden’s [aka reflex, 17 y.o.] remix too…


  8. hey Florian.
    melde dich mal bei wer-kennt-wen.de an und such nach Kai Mueller in Hardheim.

  9. Well produced bootleg but skipped on and past track 2. I think the latest from rox is weak and for me shows electro is getting tired now. HAving said that the Kurt Maverick mix of Blue Monday is awesome!

    Now Chris Lake, well it was my first track on my December podcast. Frankly the best tune I’ve heard in months. I found it a hard baseline to mix out tho! :0

    Love Arno too. On my forthcoming 2nd anniversary podcast.

    Best wishes to all. Back to Middle east in Jan.

  12. sorry i meant save money …

  13. Happy New Year you lot!

    Sorry, not checked the website over Christmas as I’ve been busy doing family things (as I’m sure you guys have been too).

    @Joylon: Love the remix! Thanks mate.

    @Florian: Thanks for the love mate. Yes, we’ll definitely sort some gigs out in the new year or I’ll come out for a beer in Karlsruhe. I am in the process of moving house so once that is finished (hopefully February) then I’ll start getting my cassettes digitised. The website needs a revamp so you can find them too! So much to do and so little time!

    @Kai: Yes, an oldschool classic mix is coming. I just haven’t had a chance! Sorry! ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Jonathan S: Big love to you and yours too! Glad you’re still loving the tunes.

    @Utopia: I’m quite liking the track but agreed it’s not as big as their last tracks and electro house is getting a bit played out.

    @Pratik – No problems with the shout out and don’t worry about donations. People have been so nice in donating a little bit of money each month and it’s working out great in paying for the server costs.

  14. Oops too many comments and I missed Architect.

    Glad you liked the bootleg mate. It was quick and dirty but it seemed to work well! I’ve not heard those other remixes so I’ll check them out. Just got sent an exclusive remix from a mate who was remixing it.

  15. happy new year mate! ๐Ÿ™‚

    #46 is a great new tune… perfect finish for the year 2008 ๐Ÿ™‚
    and Arno Cost – Souvenir is really really awesome!!!



  16. Thanks Jules and a happy new year to you too mate!
    Arno Cost is a hot producer and I love that track too.
