Difficult Listening Hour 09 (140 BPM)

Continuing with my loosely BPM-themed mixes, every song in this mix is somewhere between 135 and 145 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!

Do You Know Anything About Techno?

A mid-90s-techno-and-rave mix inspired by a YouTube clip of a bad (well, presumably, I haven’t actually watched it…yet…) mid-90s movie called Vibrations.

Difficult Listening Hour 06 (110BPM)

After taking last weekend off (but hey, I gave you almost four hours in two mixes last time I updated), here’s another new practice mix. Every song in this mix is somewhere between 105 and 115 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!

Gigs Music Theater 1998

So this is a little bit of silly self-indulgence…but then, wouldn’t that pretty much describe this entire website? 😉

Back when I was DJing at Gig’s Music Theater, I was also running a website for the club (and though I have no way of verifying this, I’ve always assumed that we were one of the first clubs to have a website running). As part of the website, I kept track of my requests, and kept a running “top requests” list. Since I archived the website as it was when the club shut down, I still have the last “top requests” list that I posted, back in 1998. Looking at it the other day, it struck me that it could make for an entertaining playlist….

So here we are: Two hours and forty-five minutes of the top club hits in 1998, as determined by the requests at an all-ages, non-alcoholic, alternative club in Anchorage, Alaska. In other words, this list probably wouldn’t match a similar list anywhere and anytime else.

It’s a little rough around the edges in spots, but that’s cause it’s recorded “live”, with no post-processing or editing. It’s not perfect, but I’ve rarely been perfect, and I think it ended up an honest and pretty fun throwback to what you’d have heard at Gig’s “back in the day”.

Difficult Listening Hour 05 (100BPM)

Finally! The first (and hopefully not the last) of a new series of long-form mixes! There’s no real particular theme to this mix, and likely won’t be for the next few mixes — primarily, I’m working on getting back in practice and getting used to my new equipment. As I do this, I’m recording what I’m doing, both so I can later listen to it and critique myself and so, if I think they’re good enough, I can upload them here. This was mixed “live” using djay with the Numark iDJ Pro controller and has no post-processing or editing work, so while it may not be perfect, it’s honest! 😉

Well, okay, there’s one light theme: Every song in this mix is between 95 and 105 BPM.

Give It A Crablouse

For many years, I had the idea for a mashup bouncing around in my head. In fact, it had been rattling around in my brain for so long that it wasn’t even originally thought of as a “mashup” — just a mix I wanted to try. However, I’d been missing a crucial piece, so it never got beyond the conceptual stage…until a few years ago.

Here’s the second of my contributions to mashup culture: Give It A Crablouse.

Sources: The Lords of Acid‘s “The Crablouse” (“In Its Native Environment (Album)” and “Whatever You Do, Remain Calm (Instrumental)”) mixes, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ “Give It Away“.

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).

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.

Eclecticism

The eight and last of my old mixes to go up. Hopefully I’ll eventually start putting new mixes up!

This is probably my favorite of the mixes I have available right now. There’s no real set style through the piece, I just slapped together a bunch of tracks that I happened to like a lot. Luckily, it all seems to work pretty well…possibly better than it should?
