“I wanna take a bath with you
And wash the chaos from my skin” Placebo
This is a mix in which I cared more about bringing songs together that are are not necessarily from the same genre and time. I rather let the mood inspire me for the next song than the beat or the lyrics. When djing it’s 50:50 for me: For a while I enjoy letting the beat carry me along but every now and then there needs to be a break to keep things poly-mooded. When I make a mix at home it seems a bit boring and predictable just to mix similar electronic beat tracks one after another, one into another. I guess I’m not ‘dj’ enough for that. *
In this mix I did less mash up stuff than in the WOLF MIX but more edits. Songwise I think it comes close to what I play out at ORCHID nights at the moment. I first had picked more than 100 songs to throw into this mix and now that it’s done and cut to 27 tracks in 60 minutes I’m quite surprised that there are so many songs in it that I got to know via DISCODUST (bless’em!) and especially that THE GOLDEN FILTER sneaked their way in three times. Need more bass music in the next one. But love GOLDEN FILTER’s remix work. Well, I blame the approaching spring for all the disco mood. Now the snow is back and I’ll be off now to listen to some LIGHTNING BOLT to clean my head. ^ ^
