This Friday, I don’t really feel like a bouncy party or that eye-twitching glitch. I need to meditate ya’ll. I need to reset myself and put this week behind me. David August to the rescue! A smooth deep house mix with surprising twists and turns, even an “I know that sound” moment.
You’ll have to let the harmonies of the first 5 minutes take you into the right state of mind. And don’t worry, the beat comes in right about that time too and it’s smooth sailing from there.
I’m gonna take a dive into this mix now… I suggest you follow.
Tracklist: 0:00 Kollektiv Turmstrasse – Last Day – (David August Revision) 17:00 Syl Johnson – Is It Because I’m Black – (David August Reconstruction) 28:00 Rebekah Del Rio — Llorando – (David August Edit) 39:40 ingrid – (David August) 45:10 Tomas Barfod — Pulsing (feat. Nina K) – (David August Remix) 51:00 Ten Walls — Gotham – (David August Edit) (???) 56:00 High Heels Breaker — Come Easy feat. Sarah Palin (David August Remix) 62:00 Grizzly Bear — Yet Again – (David August Remix)
This is truly something else. It’s friggin intense.. kind of a Aphex Twin meets Vitalic, but in a completely different sense than I initially would have liked to experience that sort of pairing.
The first set of hi hats start 16 minutes into the mix.
3 Minutes later something resembling a kick! Yes!… hmm wait. Just another tease. And the seemingly random, but yet repetitious, rhythmic mix continues.
I’d freak out if I got lost and found myself in that room on accident. It’s interesting to see the people so thirsty for a beat.. and it’s not coming. Patience is being tested..
Though I must say I find the sounds eerie and hunting.. and pretty, unlike the aphex twin show I saw once which seemed to be based more on aggressive experimental sounds. Still I don’t know how long I’d be able to handle it if I was actually there on a night out partying… at the very least I’d leave with some heart burn. I don’t think we’ll have to bother with a tracklist this time 😀
Welcome back to another Finally Friday. First of all HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little sister. You’re awesome and I can’t wait for you to visit me next month 🙂
Alright so KiNK goes completely live in this set. It may not sound as polished as someone DJing produced and mastered tracks but this opens up a totally new experience for the listener. You have to imagine someone creating arrangements made of samples on the fly right there in front of a live audience, no second chances. Mistakes can happen but that’s also what happens when you sit in the studio. It’s authentic and adds the possibility of freestyling sounds, notes and samples.
At one point he even let’s one of the fans trigger some sounds… and why not? It’s part of the experience and makes it an overall refreshing video to watch. Keep that in mind when you think you’re hearing a rough patch in the mix.
Welcome to a very special Friday. I’m posting this from the road because I’m visiting my hometown Berlin and I’m celebrating this Friday with a set by Berlin local Boys Noize. I’m probably going to have to fix some of the formatting on this post. This is my first time posting something from mobile 😅😎
This has got to be one of my all time favorite tech house sets and not only because it seems like a cast member of the Big Bang Theory is having the time of his life right behind Steve Bug 🙂
The first track got me hooked right from the start. It’s a perfect opener. These are the kinds of sets you hope to end up at when you go out to party.
