Mixdown 013


Imaginated: When something imagined becomes reality.

A mix for the road warrior and party-goer! Its got some of my favorite new/older tracks done up in true Mixdown-mashup style. Aside from Douster's Disney-themed intro, this mix has a heavy-handed nu 80s vibe, courtesy of inspiration ala Russ Chimes. I bought his new single "Targa" a couple nights ago and began planning this mix around it. The middle gets kind of clubbish, but the end is textbook nu disco.

Douster - King of Africa
Mochi Beats - Call on Hustla
Fear of Tigers vs Far East Movement - What Did I Do? (The Mixdown "G6" Live Edit)
Futurecop! - Starworshipper
iSquare - Hey Sexy Lady
Major Lazer Feat. Vybz Kartel ft. Afrojack - Pon De Floor
Jay Sean vs David Guetta - 2012 Can't Handle Me (The Mixdown "Rekicked" Live Edit)
Skrillex ft. Penny - All I Ask of You
Russ Chimes - Targa
Grum - Heartbeats (The Mixdown "Glamorous" Live Edit)

Mixdown 012

Full On Bass & Breaks
Defying Genre

My philosophy on genre:
I may not like the majority of tracks from a particular genre, but if I can find an artist whose niche in that genre I do like, I'll exploit it in my mixes.

I know there's a risk in mixing the way I do. Since I don't stick to one or two genres in a set I could lose an audience in an instant, by playing from a genre they don't like. But honestly? I mix what I want to hear, and what I want to hear is diverse styles juxtaposed in interesting ways. And if you dig what I do? Thank you! Let's talk geeky music stuff! If you don't? Move on, but thanks for opening your mind enough to give it a try!

On the mix:
"Full On Bass & Breaks" is probably the hardest, filthiest, grimiest clusterfuck you've heard from The Mixdown thus far and here's why - I've laid out the mix like a 7 course meal. You get a taste of everything, go nuts, but leave anticipating your next dinner.


Duck Sauce - Barbra Streisand (Fare Soldi Remix)
Stanton Warriors - We Interrupt This Program (Stanton Warriors Remix)
Party Ben - Low Addict
Stereo:Type ft. Breakfastaz & Ken Mac - Cold
Rusko vs DJ Fresh - Hypercaine Mouth (The Mixdown Live Edit)
Emok & NDSA vs Dynamic & Black & White - Skin Candy (The Mixdown Live Edit)
La Roux - In For The Kill (Skrillex Remix)
