Libra Mix of the Week Volume 3 – Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain

Yanntiersen

So in essence, I try to plan these things but cannot.  I wanted to make this a Libra Mix of the Week, like an every Friday kinda thing.  But I am far too fucking spontaneous.  I can’t do all that orderly stuff.  In other words, when the time is right the time is right and right now the time is right now.  Say it fast five times, I dare you.

So this week I am posting something that is a little out of the ordinary, but you may or may not be familiar with it already.  It is one of my favorite soundtracks out there, and if I want to get into my theories on Magic Music, well this is one of the Magic Music CDs I can think of offhand.  Right now only 2 come to mind and this one is probably a little higher than the other.

Magic music comes from blasting it in a car with a great stereo after having a pretty solid Red Wine Buzz and feeling it’s effects on your body as you absorb it.  It’s a pretty magical feeling.  But don’t let me waste anymore of your time with that theory, if you want to know what I mean, the instructions are pretty much written at the beginning of this paragraph so I urge you to try it yourself.

The music is from the movie Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain, which is one of my favorite movies for sure.  My last post, A Day in the Life of a Modern Day Seducer with Sleep Apnea Part IV,  kinda got me thinking about how I haven’t heard the soundtrack in a while and so I am listening to it now, as I  type this out, despite the occasional chill it sends through my body.

Yann Tiersen is a badass composer.  He is the producer and composer and whatever of this music and so…  Enough blah blah.  Here we go.

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.
