It is Coachella weekend #2 and I’m gonna keep it going with the Coachella themed mixes. This time I want to feature a mix by Michael Milano. This is his 6th annual Coachella mix. His mix is pretty much 100% full of mashups and also only includes tracks and samples from the Coachella 2019 lineup. I’ve done sample and mashup mixes before and I know it takes a ton of effort, patience and time to get it right. I’m happy to have come across Michael’s mixes. He’s been nothing but a supporter of ours in the past and I really appreciate that.
And to those asking me why I would promote other Coachella Mixes I can only say this:
The Coachella experience to me was always about connecting with people who are also on a Coachella journey. Even if that journey is an inherently different one for each of us, it does bring us together and gives us the ability to share these experiences with each other and grow. That’s why I felt like sharing Michael’s Coachella Mix journey today. I think artists grow faster when they grow together. Please show his mix, which peaked at the friggin 18th spot on the global Pop charts on Mixcloud, some love:
To everyone at Coachella and everyone wishing they could attend, I’m super excited to be part of this group of people who create these mixes for your trips to and from Coachella.. or just for listening at home or in the car to anywhere.. This is my 15th year producing these and it’s been a fun challenge each year and I really hope to see all of you and people like Michael next year again, bringing the same heat!
Another Friday, another weekend has arrived and John and I have been hammering away at a total of 4 Coachella Mixes for the past few months. I’m not gonna lie, I’m feeling fatigued.
We actually shifted up a gear last week and finished two mixes. That’s why this post is the part 2 and part 3 of 4. Last time I posted about the underground tech electronic mix, which is actually the bonus mix of this year’s collection. This week I can proudly present you the first two of our traditional mixes.
There you’ll be able to stream all of our 2019 Coachella Mixes so far.

The week went by quickly but I still couldn’t get here fast enough. It’s Friday ya’ll!!
My musical life mate John Beaver and I have been working tirelessly on the Coachella 2019 mixes. This being our 15th year (let that marinate for a second)… 15th year producing and mixing these Coachella themed musical journeys, we wanted to do something a little bit special. We are releasing one mix per week until the festival. Our first release is the Coachella 2019 Underground Dance Artist Mix. This mix features a bunch of tech house, deep house and even techno and electronica that was best mixed with its own kind.
Our other three mixes will be the type of open format mixes that everyone has gotten used to over the years, and they will of course include electronic music as well.
So to wet your whistle please enjoy our first of four mixes while John Beaver and I get back to pounding out the other parts. Last time I looked we are at a total of over 250 minutes of music for this year.. that’s a lot of editing, mixing, fixing, listening, editing again, facepalms, triumphs, lots of laughs and many many many hours over Skype, as we’re doing the entire project while being over 5000 miles apart.

It’s been a few weeks since we finished the mixes for this year. Coachella itself seemed to have been a success and the mixes we made were well received. After 14 years I’m glad to see that each year these mixes increase in quality. What started out as me recording John’s records back in 2004 has now become a full production mashup mix.. and it’s dope as hell!
In those final weeks of rushing to meet our deadline (usually a CD-release party John is playing) I used every single free minute to polish the mashups, mixes, transitions and remixes of the project. In the last two years it even exhausted me to a point of getting sick for a week once my stress chemistry in my body shuts down. It’s no big deal.. it kinda proves to me how much energy I put into the whole thing and in the overall picture it’s satisfying to be part of this and add so much to the creation of these mixes.
John and I have become a really good team considering we’ve been working at a distance of about 10,000 miles for the last six years (The reason for this is an entire story in itself, which I’m not quite ready to share so publicly, yet). We still make it work and the results speak for themselves.
Check the intro of the first of two mixes this year:
Next year will be our 15th anniversary and I’m sure we’ll be doing the regular mixes plus a special anniversary mix… I just hope we start way earlier next time.. I’m trying to get through one of these without a complete crash afterwards 😀
It’s that time of year again. Coachella is approaching and my dropbox is downloading over a hundred tracks, all potential candidates for our 14th annual Coachella mix.
This year I am trying to capture the work on video but it has already proven harder than I expected. Recording isn’t the issue but all the upload, editing, processing, etc. is taking really long. It’s certainly taking longer than I take producing these mixes and I have to stay on top of it to meet our deadline. So because of this I am going to try to post a few short clips here and there but my number one priority is the mix itself.
If you don’t know these mixes or need a refresher, you can check out and download the last three years right here. I will eventually add earlier years as well:
John Beaver and I actually started a branded website dedicated to these Coachella mixes, but I guess that was a bit too much for our friends at Golden Voice. Since they’ve supported what we’ve been doing for almost a decade and a half, we didn’t put up a fight when they kindly requested that we take that website down… I can’t blame them.. it looked legit AF 😀 lol. Either way, I consolidated the content into a couple of pages and added them to this website. I’m planning on keeping it here so feel free to remember it, write it down or take a picture 🙂
I may not be setup yet to give regular video updates but I will certainly keep posting about the progress here for the next couple of weeks.
And now it’s time to beat warp about 50 tracks in Ableton. It’s zombie-work but an important step in setting up the mashup sessions down the line.
