Some mixes I liked this year #1

Alright, here it is. The last entry for this year's "Some mixes I liked this year" series. Hope they've been interesting and at least decent. Though honestly, I'm just doing this more for myself but if there's any other dance heads out there, please be friends with me. I need more dancing partners.

This mix is actually 3 years old but I suck and I was only able to find out about it this year and they say it's never too late for good music, right?  Oh well, I'll never be cool as you, underground dance music scene snob. Anyways, something about the intro just pulls me in and sets me off into this fantastic voyage of future garage, UK funky or whatever genre you wanna call it. All I know is this shit is good, all the way through, even if the mixing isn't.

Apparently, Jacques Greene hails from Montreal, Canada. I swear, as more and more time passes, Canada becomes synonymous with cool and good thing(s).

BONUS!

So I couldn't help but still toss in some more mixes I enjoyed. Here's some extra stuff. Hopefully these will help your dance party tonight. Though things will get heavier from here on out.

Also just found out about J.Tijn this year and I am diggin' his techno. Can't want to see him live, which I hope is soon. This mix is chock full of bangin' sound. Party time.

Anyways, that's it. I really need to make a music blog. Also get better at writing about music. Also a ton of other things. But hope this has been an enjoyable tangent. See you next year.

Some mixes I liked this year #2

2nd installment of this lil' mini series. Just throwin' this up real quick before I go to bed.

Part of me wants to say this mix is pretty close to perfect. Has a real great flow of awesome 70's & 80's hits with recent dance tunes. You'll glide through this with ease and I'd like to think you can enjoy it at any time of the day.

Just one more to go... hope everyone's excited for tomorrow's shenanigans!

Some mixes I liked this year #3

Every so often, I'm really compelled to do some mixing but I just couldn't find the time. So I'll just post these already made ones I liked this year, as sort of a countdown to 2014. All these mixes were on heavy rotation at some point, due to an instantaneous catchy intro and enough excitement to keep you interested throughout.  Hopefully you find these nice for hearing and grooving.

The Magician is Stephen Fasano, previously a member of disco duo Aeroplane (love this remix by them). He's been plugging out mix tapes of straight up bass groovin' house for a while but his 33rd one stood out for me.

I'm sure there's plenty of other mixes i missed that I should check out. Let me know what your favorites are! Or even just songs. See you tomorrow for the 2nd installment.
