A laid back mix of blissful beats, perfectly harmonised vocals and easy-listening House music.
With the notion that electronic music doesn’t always have to be heard on the dance floor, this blend of classic beats and charting hits is an ideal companion to lazy Sunday.
Sometimes mornings aren’t designed for a full-blown dance-off. This mix perfectly balances the need for good music and easy listening.
This DJ set takes you on journey from down-tempo, trance-inspired tracks building on soft bass lines, culminating in synth hits which will leave you wanting to start the whole thing again.
It’s an eclectic mix of down-tempo beats and pieces, from the subtle rhythm of George Michael‘s ‘Freedom’ and Cathy Dennis‘ ‘Touch Me’ – the latter which, by the way, is another stonking production by Division 4. Sadly, since the close down of Legitimix these tracks are hard to find. Lucky for you, they’re often featured here on The Mr Blue Lips Podcast.
Check out the mash-up I included in this weeks edition of Anthems. Not everyone’s a huge Michael Jackson fan, myself included, and he’s certainly not known for his dance tracks but ‘Billie Jean’ is a classic track that everyone knows and loves. The melody fits perfectly with the samples in this mix.
Also check out the breakdown in ‘Forgiven’ by Shlomi Levi. It’s like one of those Paul Van Dyk trance emotional moments. It’s superb. I have to wipe a tear away whenever I hear it…
There’s a new mix of ‘Satellites’ – aficionados will know this as a track from 80s Hi-NRG favourite, Ellie Warren – it’s always been a favourite of mine, and it’s been covered various times, each time with the production not quite meeting the standard of the original. But this version with Peter Wilson on vocals seems to fit the theme of the set perfectly.
