New House Mix released in the Mixes Section

Same procedure as every year: I have just finished uploading a new house mix into the mixes section! As you might know, once per year I try to build a mix, that contains those tracks that I found the most interesting during the course of the year. Of course, the resulting mixes might be a tiny bit odd when it comes to style consistency, but I personally like listening to all my favorites in a row and I thought why not share those with you. This time I called it “In The Sand House” because it has a certain house vibe that I remember from beach parties several decades ago. As usual the mix starts with a soft intro track into the sunset and grows more powerful up until the second half. Then it turns more underground towards the end, where it concludes with a typical sunrise track.

New Progressive House Mix: Do You Come With Me

Madagascar

After 2 years (!) of abstinence I finally found the time to release a new progressive house mix today containing a lot of tracks that i have been listening to while programming these days. This one is very much on the progressive side of house and techno with even a little bit of trance. Just one hour long but packed with energy and hopefully joy for you to listen. Head over to the Music section and download it right away. Feel free to leave comments, questions and feedback! All tracks can be purchased from Beatport. There is also a playlist available if you are interested (giving credit where credit is due). Oh and the picture is as usual from one of my trips, this time: Madagascar. Enjoy!

Take me to the mix!

New Mix: Minimal Hovering

There is a new mix for download in the Music section. This time, I started out to be very minimal. The first couple of tracks I really love, mainly because of their fresh and unconventional underground feel. The pace increases after about 1/3 of the way and becomes a little more progressive and even a bit big room, taking a few turns into the melodic and then in the last third of the mix it goes down until ending up in my obligatory chill-out zone. It is roughly 1 hour and 45 minutes long, so take your time to enjoy the beast in its whole without interruptions. There are a lot of different styles covered within. It is again a mix of all the tracks I liked listening to the most in the past couple of months. I must admit, it was not easy to get them all working together this time and you might notice the fades are a little bumpy in the last half, but I just wanted to get all of them into one mix because they are just awesome. Hope you enjoy!

More mixes just went online

Browsing around my old mixes recently, I found two quite old ones from the years 2006 and 2007 that I just have to publish! One is called E-Lounge and the other one Springbreak. I have been listening to them while working today and although it is now nearly 6 years ago when i made them, I was surprised how fresh and full of energy they went… and I made myself a rule that all mixes that I am still listening to today, I will keep on my blog – so here you go…

Check out my music section, scroll down to the very bottom and download them right away! Feel free to get the other ones while you are at it as well (if you haven’t done so already) and don’t forget to leave some feedback!

Orbital Uplift (Float and Fall)

I have a new ‘mixtape‘ for you guys! This time it contains my favorite tracks of the past few months. I had them in a kind of heavy rotation while working, and now i put them together in a sequence.

I like to imagine it is going up like a rocket into the orbit in the beginning where suddenly (at around half of the mix) you stop moving and just kind of float around in zero gravity until you drop back down to earth (in the last 12mins). So it is kind of chillout with some energy boost here and there.

Hope you enjoy!! Don’t forget to provide some feedback in the comment section…

Mix Released: Zerga – Tanz in den Mai 2011

One year has passed since i published the last mix. And it was also on the 1st of May. Well, this time it’s a little bit later – but: I actually started working on it on the weekend of the 1st. So consider this my yearly contribution under the subject “Dance into May“.

This time i collected many very different tracks over the course of the year which i wanted to put together in one only mix. This i consider the perfect combination or “mixtape” if you will, for work or travel even though it was not that easy to jump through all the different styles. But i did not want to leave any of the pieces out.

So, I started with some of the most impressive ambient sounds i have ever listened to. One of them is by Lisa Gerrard, who in my opinion has the most amazing voice on this planet. I mean chill-down-the-spine-every-single-time kind of amazing! I really suggest you to look up some live concert’s clips on youtube if you don’t know her yet. Those sounds then will soon fade into some progressive house which climaxes in a pushing dubstep. After that the mix keeps flowing nicely up and down the electro/progressive and even minimal house line until it finishes with an excellent chillout track – which is kind of my favorite tune in the last couple of months.

You can download or stream the mix on the Music section of my blog. All I am asking is to please give me feedback on what you think about this journey of my favorite tracks of the past 365 days.

Making Prodigy’s “Smack My Bitch Up” in Ableton

This is just amazing!! Observe the work from the research of the sample sources, cutting, mixing, adding effects up to the mastering of what prodigy probably has been doing when making ‘Smack My Bitch Up’. All re-made and filmed by Jim Pavloff using Ableton.

Makes me want to create some music again. Awww…

Uplifting Tunes

Since I got my hands on my own computer for the first time (Atari 1040STF in 1986) i was fascinated by the fact that you are able to get sounds out of it. Unfortunately, this hobby fell asleep a couple of years ago. However, I am still coming back to those roots as a Home-DJ once in a while and whether i mix some vinyls or mp3s, i publish those mixes usually on some internet radio station, on Facebook or just sending them to friends so they have something to listen to while being at work.

Now i collected the most popular mixes i have done in the past few years on this blog. You are able to listen to or download them in the new Music section and I really hope you will have some constructive criticism.

P.S.: I remembered that put this blog up and running already one year ago and nearly never posted anything – this is going to change hopefully and why not start by putting some new mixes…
