New Winter DJ Set

A little holiday gift for you! I hope you enjoy. I still love putting these mixes together.

This is my first mix in a long while. My turntables were in storage for a year. Then after I set them back up, I had to work the rust off. I'm already excited to work on another you might get a part 2 soon! Im here to let me know in the comments if you want another one sooner than later.

Although this is a winter mix, it probably has nothing to do with winter except that one of the artists I include has the last name of Snow. The fact we were in the middle of a cold snap here in Las Vegas, with temperatures below freezing, might have kept me inside long enough to get it done! 

/shrug Winter Mix by inallcaps

Track list:

Depeche Mode VS The Crystal Method - Busy World In My Childs Eyes
Crystal Method are from Las Vegas. The Depeche Mode reminds me about this asshole who owes me 10 grand. I hope he chokes on his Egg Nog this year.
Candid - Empire State Of Mind (Drunk & Brilliant Mix)
This track is built around some "raverish" synth stabs and a pitched up sample of Alicia Keys from the Jay-Z hit off the Blueprint 3 album.
Benjamin Diamond
Benjamin Diamond - Little Scare (change your life mix)
This is one of my favorite house tracks. Benjamin Diamond was also the vocalist in the Stardust track "Music Sounds Better With You" if you are wondering why his voice sounds so familiar.
Phoenix - Long Distance Call (Moonchild's '25 Hours a Day' Edit)
This is a great dubby disco house remix. This dude Moonchild is really dope actually. He's from Australia and has some fantastic remixes and original work on his soundcloud. Make sure you check it out.
Miike Snow - Black and Blue (Savage Skulls Remix)
I remember saying to myself... "Damn...I am so clever for putting Miike Snow after Phoenix!" I wish I remembered why I thought that. These two tracks do sound great just seemed like I had some "meaning" for it. I might over-think this stuff...
David Guetta - Memories (Armand Van Helden vocal remix)
I like to squeeze something AVH related into my mixes. I am a big fan of his work. Walt Zink, one of our contributors on this blog, used to be a huge fan of his back in the day. He's NOT a fan of the direction Van Helden has gone with his work in recent years...but I'm still on board! I love it!
Wolfmother- New Moon Rising (Riton Club Rub)
I think Walt Zink also like Wolfmother. Not that i was over-thinking THAT much!

NastyFunker - Blood on the Dancefloor ( Nastys chunk-a-Funk Mix )
I am not sure about where I got this track. Or who this is exactly. I think I found a few profiles, but can't confirm it's the same remixer. I think this is the artists soundcloud. I just can't be 100% sure. I might need your help on this guys!
Daft Punk
Daft Punk - Television Rules The Nation (Dirty Disco Youth Remix)
I love Daft Punk. It's another artist I like to squeeze in to a mix. Everyone loves Daft Punk. The Dirty Disco Youth are doing a lot of hot stuff, and you should check them out.
Snoop Dog - Thought I Was A DJ (Wonky Ninja Remix)
I usually have a pretty good idea what I want to play when I record a mix... until about the 50 minute mark. This is where a good mix can go bad for me as I struggle to find a few more tracks to drop. Luckily this one fit the vibe nicely!

Maxwell - Bad Habits (Harlan Pepper & AG III Dub Remix)
Love this remix, but the original is great as well. Maxwell is the perfect soundtrack to get busy to, if you know what I mean!

That's it! Hope you enjoyed the mix and the DVD style commentary! Stay warm peeps!
