Sounds From the Lost Abbey 11

Back in February, I took up a challenge from one of my friends (prompted by the Gigs mix I posted) to create a mix based around songs that I’d have played at the Lost Abbey, during the mid- to late-1990s. To get a little help putting together the playlist, I put out a call for requests on Facebook, and ended up with something around 14 hours of possible songs, almost entirely pulled from requests by people who used to see me spin at the Lost Abbey.

Since 14 hours is far too long to do as a single mix, I’ve broken the requests up into multiple 80-ish-minute playlists. Here’s the eleventh (and, at this point, last) in the series!

  1. White Zombie: More Human Than Human (Meet Bambi in the King’s Harem)
  2. The Sisters of Mercy: When You Don’t See Me
  3. Republica: Drop Dead Gorgeous
  4. The Cure: Friday I’m In Love (Strangelove)
  5. My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult: A Martini Built for 2
  6. Pulp: Common People (Full Length)
  7. Depeche Mode: Blasphemous Rumors
  8. Nine Inch Nails: Suck
  9. The Cure: Close to Me (Extended)
  10. Soft Cell: Tainted Love/Where Did Our Love Go (Hot Tracks)
  11. Orbital: Halcyon + On + On
  12. Underworld: Cowgirl
  13. Underworld: Rez

Thor’s Day Night Dance

This past weekend, I was the DJ for the Thursday Night Dance (which we named the Thor’s Day Night Dance) at a local convention.

We call it Thursday night, but we used to know it as Thor’s Day…and you can kick off your weekend of saving the world with a celebration worthy of Asgard itself! Join DJ Wüdi for an evening of tunes new and old for gods and mortals alike. Come dressed as your godlike representation or as your mortal alter-ego. Requests are not just welcome, but encouraged!

Here’s my full DJ set from the night, recorded live as the night went on! The full track is huge (4 hours, 23 minutes, 296.6 MB), so I’ve also split the night into four sections of roughly an hour each for easier downloading. In all the tracklists, tracks marked with “•” were requests.

Enjoy!

The full mix:

Difficult Listening Hour 07 (120BPM)

This weekend’s new practice mix. Every song in this mix is somewhere between 115 and 125 BPM. And as always, this was mixed “live” and has no post-processing or editing work, so while it may not be perfect, it’s all me!

  1. Collide ‘The Lunatics Have Taken Over the Asylum’
  2. Depeche Mode ‘Halo (Comfortable)’
  3. Nitzer Ebb ‘Captivate’
  4. Art of Noise ‘Kiss (Art of Noise)’
  5. Eurythmics ‘Beethoven (I Love to Listen To) (Dance)’
  6. Erasure ‘Always (Hey)’
  7. Delerium ‘Flowers Become Screens (Frequency Modulation)’
  8. Echo and the Bunnymen ‘Bring On the Dancing Horses’

Just Can’t Get Flexible in 1999

Now that I’ve run through all the long-form mixes I had laying around, here’s the first of two mashups I’ve put together.

Depeche Mode’s ‘Flexible’ and ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ plus Prince’s ‘1999’ equals DJ Wüdi – Just Can’t Get Flexible in 1999 (7.8Mb MP3).

Download Just Can’t Get Flexible in 1999 (7.8Mb MP3)

This was my first attempt at creating a mashup rather than just listening to ’em. Probably not likely to make it to the top of the charts, but I don’t think it’s too terribly bad for a first try.

Difficult Listening Hour 01

The first of a few old mix sessions I’m re-posting. I hope to have something new to post in the not-terribly-distant future, but for now, this will get things started.

  1. Depeche Mode ‘Headstar’
  2. Wink feat. Trent Reznor ‘Black Bomb (Jerry in the Bag)’
  3. Pop Will Eat Itself ‘Menofearthereaper (Concrete No Fee No Fear)’
  4. Coil ‘The Snow (Answers Come in Dreams II)’
  5. Underworld ‘Dirty Epic (Dirty)’
  6. Drum Club ‘Sound System (Underworld)’
  7. Rabbit in the Moon ‘Subfusion’

Download DLH01 (43m 03s, 39.43Mb .mp3)

This mix was mixed ‘live’ — running a Pioneer dual CD mixer directly into my computer and recording straight to .mp3 — and has had no post-mix editing done in the computer. As such, it’s not flawless, but it’s not bad, either, if I do say so myself.
