…another year over and a new one just begun…
ok, a bit premature, but the yearly spirit of catharsis is in the air, whatever you want to call it. btw, santa, just in case you are passing by this way, here’s top of my wishlistÂ (sorry, i appear to have slumped into gadget-geek mode).
so, moving on swiftly, let me follow the herd and offer my mix for 007. for me, it’s been a good one music-wise. haven’t been to too many gigs but i’ve dj’ed enough to keep things interesting. morocco was definitely a high-point, and there’s been many a fine night had at smarties, that marvel of old meets new (no, i’m not talking about the owners!).
house music has dominated my heart and mind – for which i can thank vitalic (live) and digitalism (recorded). dubstep is still bubbling under. could 2008 be the year where this musical magpie form once and for all leaves its croyden bedsit? i think i’ve missed out a lot on what’s been going on on the hip hop scene, but i feel there’s a whole world there to look forward to.
enough ramblings, here’s what me and mixmeister have boiled it down to:
nightmare b4 xmas – harry covert
Ves (Feat: Kumar) – Telmary
So Gaye Hain – A R Rahman (Ges-E Remix)
My CD Has A Scratch II feat. Salim – Wendel Patrick
Staring At The Sun (Bryan Hyde REdit) – TV On The Radio VS Bryan Hyde
Irst_te (Claude VonStroke Remix) – Worthy
Archangel (8-Bit Boy remix) – Burial
Long Train Runnin’ (Sure Is Pure 12″ Mix) – The Doobie Brothers
Arcadia (Shitkatapult) Short Version – Apparat
mythree – andrey kiritchenko
Saturn – Sebastian Leger
Your Name My Game – Herman Dune
flying lotus – tea leaf dancers
Hallelujah (Perfecto Mix) – Happy MondaysÂ Â
Cha Cha – Balkan Beat Box
Thank You America (Kevorkian Remix) – Cabaret Voltaire
C’est Le Bonheur – M
i feel like there should be a follow-up, showcasing, among other things, some of the delights beatport has brought me. having said that, most of these gems have already found their way onto this site through one mix or another. thinkÂ nathan fake’sÂ “the sky was pink” or “the magician” by thomas schumacher.Â maybe i’ll save that one for early 08.
festive fun to one and all, and remember, chocolate in vast quantities can and will kill.
