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.

Introducing Libra Mix of the Week: Lifelike – “Remix Machine” MixTape

Libra Mix of the Week.  That’s what I’m going to call it for now, even though I know later I’ll come up with a less Lame name 😉 .

Why not?  I decided just now that I should be doing this anyway.  If you go back to my last post, A Day in the Life of a Modern Day Seducer with Sleep Apnea part II, you will see one of my favorite house songs.

I looked up some Lifelike mixes and happened across this and decided, of, wtf…  I may as well share it.  It’s a NuDisco style mix, with some coolness.  Something I can most definitely write to.  But I didn’t write this post so you can listen to me blah blah all day.

Take a listen!

You can find the tracklisting and more from Lifelike over at Soundcloud – LIFELIKE ” Remix Machine” MixTape.
