Mike D – So Fram House Mix

This is house the way you want it….  Well, at least the way I want it.  I’m sick as a dog today but still gotta go to work, and keep that ship afloat.  Soooo – I need a litte kick.  this is the kind of House-house that so much of the crappy dubstep and euro-trash progressive and trance and fist-pumping jersey shore bullshit has people overlooking, due to bad taste.

This is the kind of house that get people movin, groovin, shuckin and jivin.

DJing events primarily in the Northeast since the early 2000’s. Funk and Swing adept, Mike D is renowned for his crowd moving, jack-driven selections.

Enjoy!

I tried to stick with a more Chicago/Jackin’ House feel rather than going my usual route of funky/disco house. I hope you all enjoy it just as much as my others. ~Mike D

And You Thought I Was Gone Forever? (And Libra Mix #4)

Ninja Tune XX piece

I have stories, and more stories, and things that have been happening that I would have liked to share, but I just spent the last 2 or three months without a laptop.  And perhaps there are a couple of you that missed me.  I mean, I have followers.  I don’t know if my followers just follow for fun, and have a list of 30 or 40 other blogs they follow, so that when I post something my posts just get lost in the large influx of emails about new blog posts they get in their box, OR if they are like, “This Ronnie motherfucker is a cool cat, and I like reading his LONG, run-on sentences that likely don’t have enough commas in them.”

I know I do get more and more followers.  Maybe I don’t get the comments I would like.  I wanted this blog to be interactive, but then again, I also seem to be a little controversial and have been told that many people may read my blog in secret.  That’s cool with me.

Anyway, let’s talk about something important.

The Libra Mix…  I should have posted this a long time ago.  I honestly feel that anyone that listens to this will like it.  It’s really that good.  It’s a mix by Coldcut from 2006.  This is a classic as far as I’m concerned.

If you look at the tracklist for this 2 hour mix you will see everything from AC/DC “Back in Black”, to Lou Reed “Take a Walk on the Wild Side”, to Eric B and Rakim “I No U Got Soul”, to Bjork “HIdden Place”, with more from Beasty Boys, Iggy Pop & the Stooges, Franz Ferdinand, KRS ONE, Method Man, and a whole host of others.  In other words it’s ALL OVER the place and in a Very Very Good way.  This mix Owns!  Enjoy this mix and I’ll see about putting down some stories on this here blog, and tying up some of the loose ends I’ve left as well…  Cheers!

Libra Mix of the Week – Tim Deluxe Essential Mix

Back is for another wild ride, this time  for 2 hours of amazing house and DJness from years past.  If you go back and experience the post, A Day in the Life of a Modern Day Seducer with Sleep Apnea part I, you will be able to check out his hit track It Just Wont Do, one of my favorite house tracks (but I have so many…) and get a slice of what this Tim Deluxe catfish is all about.

The set was recorded live 2002.09.08 but don’t let that fool you, this is some outstanding house beats, tracks and mixing from an outstanding producer from back in those days, Tim Deluxe.

If you’re not familiar with Essential Mixes, you should be.  They happen every week on BBC Radio 1 over in the UK, but you can usually listen to them online, and if you’re like me, you can plug into your stereo and bang it out, or if you’re out with your friends and have a fancy ass phone and the right kind of car stereo, you can groove with it in your car.
