DJ Cruze Podcast Episode #52 - In The Moment - 16th June 2009

Here you go. Another hour of funky house, twisted disco and electro beats all served up in a handy little package we call the DJ Cruze Podcast Episode #52. I’ve thankfully managed to get it done in a month too which is always good!

As most people have probably realised, I name each of the shows after one of my favourite tunes in the podcast and this month I chose Haji & Emanuel’s “In The Moment” as the name of the show as it’s one of my favourite tracks in the mix. Never has a title been so apt as for this month’s show. I’ve been DJ’ing in Germany for over 16 years now and I’m met many people in my time over there. I had the pleasure to party with many people and sadly I found out last week that someone I knew, an ex-boyfriend of a good friend of mine, has died. His name was Philipp Lehberger but was better know as “Willy”. He died a tragic death after a fall whilst trying to break up a fight. I hadn’t seen him in four or five years but I still remember him with fond memories. He was a funny guy and great to chat to. He also liked to drink Jägermeister with me and I’m a man who always enjoy drinking that with my German friends. In fact I’m probably going to drink a Jägermeister in his honour once this podcast is uploaded! So it’s poignant that the title “In The Moment” sort of sums up how life should be lived and probably how he lived his life. Make sure you live life to the full and “in the moment” as you never know what’s round the corner. This month’s podcast is dedicated to his memory. RIP Willy. Mach’s gut.

As always, there are plenty of massive tunes in the show this month. We’ve got some dirty electro house from the likes of Spencer & Hill, Fedde Le Grand and Jean Elan. We’ve got some twisted cut-up disco madness from Don Diablo. We’ve got deeper house tracks from the likes of Michael Grey and Danism, Haji & Emanuel and The Viron Ltd. Hey, we’ve even got a massive cheeky remix of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony from Wolfgang Gartner. We cater for all tastes on this show!

Finally, I’ve got to apologise for some of the vocals in this show. It sounds a bit like I’m slurring my words. No, I wasn’t drinking – it was just that the battery was going in the microphone I was using and I didn’t realise until I’d finished most of the vocals. It was too much work to re-record them all so I’ve left them as is.

So enjoy this month’s show and don’t forget to comment below and tell me what you think of the tunes.

  1. Why can’t all of DBN’s mixes be as funky and uplifting as the one they’ve done of “In The Moment”?

    Surprised to see a Riva Starr remix featuring here – didn’t think you’d like what he does, for some reason. Favourite track has to be Michael Gray & Danism’s “Say Yes”. Something special about that one, I think.

    9 out of 10 for me. Only thing stopping it from getting a 10 is the choice of remix of “Hold On Tight”. Much prefer the Olav Basoski remix of that one.

  2. Yeah, I love the DBN remix of “In The Moment”.

    I like good tunes and I don’t care who makes them. I like some of the Riva Starr stuff and here they’ve done a Rhythm Masters style remix which I love.

    I love the PhonJaxx remix as it reminds me of the old Giorgio Moroder disco bassline. Yeah, the Olav Basoski remix is great too. I love most things Olav does!

  3. HEY DJ Cruze,
    heard the new podcast, enjoyed the tunes. Thank you! Came alot sooner than expect, i am happy to see a new podcast on scene!
    But, to avoid sounding so much like a “yes man” i want to note i was not as pleased with this podcast. I did not feel as moved like some of the previous podcast. I don’t know. I did loved “Disco Disco Disco” track, maybe i fell off, not feeling the new sounds your sampling on this podcast. I think i enjoy more of the dark and hard-hitting dubby sounds of house; Felix da Housecat, Young Punx, Olav Basoki, Justice, among others digg?
    But! to the DJ Cruze podcast fans or new heads listening in… he still rockin hard.

    KEEP ON ROCK’n!!!

  4. Greetings,

    I just want to let you know that I really enjoy your show. I discovered House Music in college in 1988 and fell in love with it. It’s hands down the best music to dance to and its perfect for a hard and sweaty workout at the health club. After college I didn’t get to hear House as much but with the internet and I tunes I’ve gotten back into it. There are a lot of House Podcasts to choose from but yours seems to put together a mix that always holds my interest. I appreciate you providing the song list on your web site from each podcast too. Oh and by the way, my all time favorite episode is Episode #34 Chime. Love it love it love it!!! Apparently I seem to dig the chunky tracks (see there I’m even learning House Music lingo from your show too).

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know that you have another hit with your latest episode #52. Thanks again for doing what you do.

    Take Care and know that you have an adoring fan in Illinois 😉


  5. wow, another one!
    Podcast is as always good, entertaining, I mean, one never gets bored of it…
    But maybe you should try giving us some exclusive tracks, smth that hasn’t been released yet, smth special that nobody heard yet, e.g. from “Made In London” maybe?…

    thx, and keep up the good work!
    p.s. almost forgot… Can you give the tracklisting for the mix in Germany?

  6. @Joel – Sorry you didn’t enjoy the tunes as much and thanks for the feedback. I play anything from straight up house and US garage to darker electro and progressive house so people aren’t always going to like everything. Hopefully there will be some good new tracks for you next month.

    @Elizabeth – I’m glad you’ve got back into house music after a brief hiatus! I wouldn’t quote “chunky” as being house music lingo though! It’s just my Northern England local dialect! 🙂

    @architect_kz – The “Made in London” guys are actually Hagenaar and Albrecht and they’re releasing stuff under that name now. Alistair Albrecht has sent me a new track so I’ll play that on the show. I’ve got quite a few exclusives coming up too. I get sent a lot of things but not all of them are great so I don’t play them! I’ll sort out the tracklisting for the Germany mix as soon as I can.

  7. Looks like the RSS feedburner link is down since it’s moved to Google :/

    Typed in http://www.djcruze.co.uk and it redirected me to http://feeds2.feedburner.com/co/kcUd instead of the old feeds.feedburned.com address…. might be time to update your links!!

  8. Hey Sascha,

    http://www.djcruze.co.uk should redirect to http://www.djcruze.co.uk/cms – did it not do that?

    The link to the podcast feed should be:


    Is that correct for you?

  9. Cweeza u need to have as your next Cruze classic that ‘Smooth Criminal’ bootleg we used to hammer at Vibration! Shamohn

  10. wow, great new tune! “Killer” from Jean Elan rocks very massive!!!


  11. @Vache – Exactly what I was thinking mate! If we’ve moved house then I’ll be able to find it but it might have to wait if not.

    @Jules – Yeah, it’s a wicked track isn’t it?

  12. hey marc!

  13. Hey Kai. Yes, I’m doing one at the moment but I’m also moving house! That’s going to happen next week so I might not have internet for a couple of weeks. It should be online by the end of July.

  15. I’d love to come over to Costa Rica! 🙂

    Thanks for your kind words.

  16. Good Session, but the comments and messages during the mix annoyng me.

    Keep the session clean, please.


  17. @Alex –
    The podcast has always had voiceovers and messages during the mix because:

    (a) podcasting music is illegal unless you own a licence to re-broadcast each track
    (b) I play quite a few promos that producers and record labels don’t want ripping from an MP3 mix
    (c) a lot of people who listen to the show like to hear a shout-out.

    If you want to listen to straight mixes then just download the mixes from this site instead.
