The Beauty of Good House, the remix, and Technology

April 5, 2009

One of my favorite house mixes is one Dixon did for futureboogie back in 2006. Ever since then I have been looking of the 3 track on the mix. It always blew my mind, but I could never find it since the mix didn’t have a playlist. But today after three long years using the power of the shazam application for my iphone of found the name of this jem.  The name of the track is ” Have You seen The Moon in Dallas” by Ost & Kjex. Below I have posted the original and the genius remix by Maurice Fulton. enjoy…

letanque radio

October 17, 2008

i was inspired by cam’s mix to spend some time on the wheels of steel last night.  so i’ll through this one up right here.  its a leftfield downtempo strole, no dance bangers.  best for work, waiting for the bus, long car rides, that kinda gig.  and you will notice right away the focus is on the songs, not the mixes, i prefered to let each song play out and to be listened to as they were written.  so its more like radio than a mix.
