I have no pretensions whatsoever. I just LOVE House music! And like so many others I have had enough of buying and listening to...

The Greek House Collection (Soul Fever)

 

First of a mini-series of Soulful House sets mixed in Greece during a break from it all.

 

Let’s first credit a friend of mine, Gilberto Blackmon (The Funky Blackman) whose podcast you will find here on Podomatic:

http://funkyblackman.podomatic.com/entry/2016-07-04T19_32_20-07_00 and on our Facebook Page site “House is a Journey”:

https://www.facebook.com/MyHouseJourney/

 

As some may have noticed I have not touched any Soulful House for more than half a year. I could not even attempt to put any soulful sets together so bored and actually literally without any emotions about any soulful tunes I was listening to. Not receptive, no challenge and felt no purpose.

 

Yet during my July break, whilst riding a bike in 37C heat, on a high gradient, suffering hell, I chose to listen to his latest set, deep & soulful and “Εύρηκα”... I finally got that warm feeling again, which can only be brought by listening to quality soulful deep house. Thank you Gilberto, without your help, this state of creative impotence could have lasted a lot longer.

 

Mostly 2016/2015 tunes, one oldie and a triple Marc Evans because I always think of Marc Evans when I delve into Soulful.

 

Playlist:

 

  1. 2015 Soul Fever (Max & Sims Remix). Max & Sims ft. Echodust
  2. 2016 Turn Me On (Original Mix). Terry Lex
  3. 2016 This Could Be Us (The Layabouts Vocal Mix). Tony Momrelle, The Layabouts
  4. 2016 Just Like That (Extended Mix). Raphaella, Midnight City
  5. 2015 Tenderness (Michele Chiavarini Remix). Michele Chiavarini, Aldo Bergamasco, Antonello Ferrari ft. Samantha Johnson

  7. 2015 You Need Someone (Oli Hodges Remix). Maff Boothroyd, Oli Hodges
  8. 2014 Follow Your Heart (Frankie Knuckles & Eric Kupper Director's Cut Signature Mix). Holly Johnson, Frankie Knuckles, Eric Kupper

  15. 2015 Soul Fever (AM2PM Extended Mix). MP, AM2PM ft. Angie Brown, AM2PM

 

Highlight:

 

Without a doubt the Hungarian Max & Sims’ rendition of “Soul Fever” is the absolute standout of the set. Stellar tune, Echodust is an amazing vocalist and the production of Director’s cut standard. I started the set with their remix and ended it with AM2PM’s version with a different vocalist which is not bad either.

Both Marc Evans’ jams, “Beneath The Crescent Moon” and “Felt Like Heaven” are soulful house heaven with his unmistakable voice and inspired melodies. Marc Evans is the Barry White of this century and I actually rate him immensely higher as a singer song writer and producer, all in one go, with lyrics have meaning to boost his already immense talent.

Resuming my Trance Mission with “The 138 bpm Drop”

 

Balearic Trance Journey. Drop both your inhibitions and your gear and let the journey start!

 

If you do not like real (but frenetic at times) bangin’ trance, I strongly suggest you give this one a miss… yet, you will have foregone quite a journey…

 

Firstly, I have to thank Lars for giving me the inspiration to put this set together. Lars has been supporting this space for quite a while and has always commented (positively or not) when he sees a new upload.

 

Recently, Lars contacted me when, in between my hiatus and completely uninterested with the current offering of traditional house, I uploaded the 2 Quanta of Solace. Once again he gave me the will-power to revisit that old love of mine, Trance, Progressive House or what I call Trouse.

 

In the past, I have always chided from high bpm Trance. Anything over 130 and I would either never get there or prefer not to include it in any set. Partly for I felt it was frenetic and partly for I assumed I (and by extension) you were too old for it.

 

The algorithm I use to choose a playlist in preparation for my sets is programmed by design to nicely keep tracks, keys, bpm and flavours in a tight range. And since I like to start slow to build up, I very rarely get to reach anything over 130 bpm.

 

There is vast blog space on the Internet dedicated to the question “ Who is afraid of 138 bpm Trance?” There is even a label called “ Who is afraid of 138 bpm?”…. Well, in many ways, I am!

 

This being said, in order to continue the Trance Mission and be true to the genre, I always knew I would eventually have to get over that fear.. I worked without the algorithm and here we are. Set is 80% over 132 bpm by DESIGN!

 

Vielen Danke Herr Lars. This one (good or not) is for YOU! Sorry for all the florish but had all those dits and felt like trying them out..

 

Another reason to resume the mission, was a request I got a few weeks ago to play for Mardi Gras for a LGBTY party in Sydney. The request was flattering, yet due to not being in the right headspace at all and natural performance jitters, I chose not to consider it. I told the promoter that I would send him a demo of what I thought would be the right journey for such an event for the boys.

 

Well, here it is!

 

As a general comment, this set is very ornate. In many ways , it is more a case of Xtian trying to take stock of what he can do and tediously learn new tricks than anything else.

But along the way I am putting out there all the new edits and mashups I have been toiling on, which might just be a bit TOO MUCH in one go considering my modicum of talent but it feels so good to have them out there and await your reaction and so good to have them safely saved and backed up on my HD for a future live set!

As an added bonus (for me): after the mashup of Silence and Missing from a few years back, I have now semi-cracked a mashup and counter-mashup of Finally and Silence.. Yippee, I can finally rest. 

 

Obviously, not every track is fresh and current. For Trance is all about anthems and there are at the most 3 or 4 a year!

I did try my best to include a few I never played before. As I had used a few current great tracks in the two previous Quanta and did not want to repeat myself ad nauseam, I decided to try out all the edits I have been working on in the past and had lost when my library got corrupted. Call it a bulk early release, other would call it premature ej...... but sorry I just had to..

 

Even more satisfying, almost all tracks are new Xtian Edits of mostly unkown remixes and , for better or for worse, you get the added bonus of a few of mashups I am quite happy with.

 

Now close your eyes, imagine you bought a ticket for Ibiza, got yourself sorted and you are ready for a genuine balearic Trance journey.. 

 

DO NOT GET AFRAID WHEN IT GOES TO 138.. It is meant to!

  24. 2004 As The Rush Comes (Gabriel And Dresden Mix) [Xtian Enhanced Choral Canon Edit]. Motorcycle

 

Highlights:


From 1998, "Who Do You Love" from Jose Padilla, Chicane was a baby and yet was given the honour to remix the Cafe del Mar legend.. great Balearic track, which took me ages to find again..

"Kiss Me Here", old Tritonal fav of mine with a great built up and Christine de Soto amazing vocals.

This year will see a LOT of "Saltwater" remixes as I think it is the 20th anniversary. I can't wait to see what comes as I believe that "Saltwater" is one track that has yet to get THE DEFINITIVE REMIX but in the meantime, I found this 2009 one give this anthem a bit of a kick.

A very recent track from Above and Beyond "Treasure", DO NOT MISS.. Zoe Johnston whose voice you will recognize is just amazing. Great melodic trance.

Then starts a "Silence" extravaganza.. None of those remixes are run of the mill ones, most are bootleg and ALL are my personal private edits and mashups. I obviously have overdone it.  But now I have those files secured and backed up and I am ready to drop them any time.. Starts at 38:00, Mashup Silence/Finally (41:19) to end around 46:16.

"Koori" from Vitodito.. Japanese Trance.. Just because it is japanese..

"Second Chance" from Blood , Grooves and Kikkis.. Do not love the track but I actually think I did a fair job with the "Silence" mashup (starts at around 58:32).

A unknow trance remix of You've Got the Love" got the mashup treatment with "How Deep is Your Love" at !:04:54

Could not have a balearic Trance journey without some latin rhythm and hence brought in a new remix of "Pasilda" from Helena Legend.

Followed by another anthem but a completely new take with Kings of Tomorrow "Finally" in a totally different colour courtesy of Frank Caro and a private Xtian Edit, which I can live with and will use in live sets.. Tracks starts at 1:20:20 mashup at 1:22:02)

Onto a Chicane medley, with a "Poppihola" mashup with Dajae's "Everyday My Life", which almost works.. So close but another one I will drop in live sets.. (Mashup starts at 1:29:40)

Do not miss "An Angel's Love" from Alex M.O.R.P.H. ANTHEM... I had missed this absolute gem from 2011.. When Trance meets Classical I am completely in my element.. LOVE IT!

Finishing with "As the Rush Comes" from Motrocycle, another anthem, but presenting my private edit, true to the original but if I may say maybe even more potent.. (Starts at 1:46:45)

 

A bientôt

 

I still have a Quantum to post but might take a little while.

Second Quantum of Solace (In the Air CX 134)

 

Refer to previous podcast for an update on my status. 

 

I mixed this second Quantum of Solace during an 8 hour flight. The only post-edit is the intro, in many ways unnecessary but I felt like tying the set up to the Quantum World. Furthermore, should you be a fervent follower, you have already endured many a time my love for intros..

 

Numerous Xtian edits, set mostly in the progressive house, trance space I want to stay in at the moment. And herein included quite of few 2015-2016 tunes, which is a bonus!

 

A bit of sugar, some alternative tracks and quite a few on my personal high-rotation list . Enjoy!

 

I have another quantum on my hard drive, mixed during the return flight. I will post it when I have some time.

 

Some of the tunes featured are on my favourite current list:

- “I Need You” from SK1

- “Peace of Mind” and “Counting Down the Days”, not to miss very current trance/progressive gems from A&B.

- “My Head is a Jungle” from the Dior advert with Emma Louise a great local vocalist from the indie scene.

First Quantum of Solace (CX Lounge)

I really should start with the simple fact that I have put myself on a hiatus..

Several reasons for my current status:

A) Life is currently non-linear and the pressure to keep this podcast up to what I believe should be my standards would not really bring any escape.

B) I had found that laately what I uploaded was at best mundane. If I do not feel it, why should I do it? Furthermore I am currently over soulful house, I do need to really get very far away from it for a while to start feeling it again.

C) I played a long set on New Years’s Eve and though not bad same non-urge to publish it.

D) What happens once every two years, my library got corrupted. I had to bite the bullet and migrate to my new mac, having lost most edits and settings. To rebuild a library to the structure I need takes a lot of time and tagging and I simply do not have that luxury at the present time.

But here I am, travelling overseas, facing lounge downtime, flight downtime, hotel room downtime, all those little quanta of Solace conducive to trying to redefine where I would like to be musically should life settle down a tad.

My current headspace is progressive, ambient, trance-like and possibly harder-like in the near future.

Playlist is approximate due to library corruption just when I had closed the set. The format is based around one or two keys, starts around 120 bpm to go to 136 and brings you down back to 122.
A few on-the-fly edits, a very cheeky mashup I will get in trouble for (Rick Astley trancified really winking and yes a bit of true trance..

Absolutely 100% Live with all the traps inherent with such an endeavour where no post-edit is possible..

I Play for Paris Pt.3

 

Twisted Original Club, Progressive and Trance anthems and a couple of Rock ones!

 


Fittingly starting with “Sympathy for the Devil”, diving straight into Progressive sexy house with a hint of Club House before a Progressive – Trance House climax.  First time I get people to actually dance to my beloved Faithless, must have been the time when everything clicked and kicked in.

 

One month ago some nihilistic losers butchered 130 women and men in Paris…

 

Forget about the social media meltdown, France is my country and Paris my city. Whereas France is actually far from being the model country it aspires to be, by attacking “her” for being the “capital of prostitution and obscenity”, those bastards just proved that somehow those symbols of secularism and freedom are still alive and worth celebrating.

 

Forward to a few days ago… I was unable to mix anything, which wasn’t dark and filled with anger for a month until we decided to have an impromptu party. The core nexus of friends who could make it facing Xtian who was wondering what would spark his muse and how he could get out of his negative loop and make himself and his friends happy.

 


I played a 4 hour set, took about 20 minutes to get into it but once I found the right format for this forum it flowed. Got out of my spleen and played fun eclectic jams, old and new edits of tunes everyone knew but cuts they had not heard before. Whereas my usual format is to play current paid releases in whatever genre takes my fancy, I went into a “Richard Vasquez/Doctor Love” mode and played for me and for my friends.

 

Four hours later, they were asking for more and pushing me to go harder and louder. Take that nihilistic butchers, this is our answer to your dead-end philosophy.

 

Set is cut into 3 parts, slightly edited of what did not quite work live but true to the spirit of the night.

 

 

Part 3 is simply the culmination of all that. Release!

I Play for Paris Pt.2

 

Handbag House tunes bordering on lipstick Pop!

 

Fittingly starting with “Too Young to Die” with a rather long medley of Moloko’s “Sing it Back” in the first third. At that stage, I had to attend to some social duties and cued what is one of my favourite tune to fill up the blanks.

 

 

One month ago some nihilistic losers butchered 130 women and men in Paris…

 

Forget about the social media meltdown, France is my country and Paris my city. Whereas France is actually far from being the model country it aspires to be, by attacking “her” for being the “capital of prostitution and obscenity”, those bastards just proved that somehow those symbols of secularism and freedom are still alive and worth celebrating.

 

Forward to a few days ago… I was unable to mix anything, which wasn’t dark and filled with anger for a month until we decided to have an impromptu party. The core nexus of friends who could make it facing Xtian who was wondering what would spark his muse and how he could get out of his negative loop and make himself and his friends happy.

 

I played a 4 hour set, took about 20 minutes to get into it but once I found the right format for this forum it flowed. Got out of my spleen and played fun eclectic jams, old and new edits of tunes everyone knew but cuts they had not heard before. Whereas my usual format is to play current paid releases in whatever genre takes my fancy, I went into a “Richard Vasquez/Doctor Love” mode and played for me and for my friends.

 

Four hours later, they were asking for more and pushing me to go harder and louder. Take that nihilistic butchers, this is our answer to your dead-end philosophy.

 

Set is cut into 3 parts, slightly edited of what did not quite work live but true to the spirit of the night.

 

 

Part 2 is simply feel-good handbag house.

The Dex Diamond remix of King of my Castle is an illegal download. Why do I mention it? Simply because it is NOT available for legal download anywhere. Though listed on ITunes, release is only available from iTunes Denmark, making it illegal here down under. What a complete nonsense from the majors! I even went through the trouble of contacting the artist to see how I could obtain the release legally to no avail.. Since I had paid for the tune in the past but can’t find it, I feel I have done all I could do. Pity, I only have the crap encoding version though..

 

Part 3 to be uploaded very soon!

I Play for Paris Pt.1


Eclectic Lounge with a few unexpected finds and some very tongue-in-cheek pop mashups..

 

One month ago some nihilistic losers butchered 130 women and men in Paris…

Whereas France is actually far from being the model country it aspires to be, by attacking “her” for being the “capital of prostitution and obscenity”, those bastards just proved that somehow those symbols of secularism and freedom are still alive and worth celebrating.

Lots of repeats but somehow that’s how we felt! We wanted to feel good and were oh-so very ready to try our best.

 

Four hours later, they were asking for more and pushing me to go harder and louder. Take that nihilistic butchers, this is our answer to your dead-end philosophy.

 

Set is cut into 3 parts, slightly edited of what did not quite work live but true to the spirit of the night.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
