2007's Front Cover Artwork

I had an idea that I was winding down the series as early as 2006 and there were two projects that I knew I had to do before throwing in the towel.  One of those projects was a dance compilation and that is what this year’s fruitcake became.  For the previous 8 years I had […]

Get More of The Faint!!

Found The Faint while selling a bunch of my sister Michelle’s CD’s on Amazon.  Fell for them hard.  Their punk-electro-techno swagger swooooooned me.  This song of course popped into my head as a great way to open a DJ set because you jump right in telling the crowd that there is some sort of control going […]

Get More Elegia!!

This is a tough one.  Early in 2000, I found this track on Napster and it was one that I would play for myself and friends at 3AM and it would always make me want to go back out.  Just dig the delicate nature of all the sounds and they way they play together. Click […]

Get More Chaser!

Chaser was a band that I got into first thing when I wanted to DJ back in the late 90’s.  My mindset was heavy on Future Jazz and Chaser had some really unique blends of Jazz and House.  This track is not for everyone, but if you are adventurous, let their exploration of deep bass […]

Get More Deep Dish!!

Okay…this is a bit revealing, but no names will be used to protect the “innocent” partiers.  See, back in the day, I found myself at a San Diego house party full of people on ecstasy.  How do I know?  They were all very bright eyed, let’s say…and the owner of the house told me so.  […]

Get More Underworld!!

Forgive my transition into this song.  You don’t really hear it here, but on the CD it was pretty bad.  Anyway, this track was one I got into on a drive back from Palm Springs after going to a weekend Roam pool party.  Roam was this great group of guys that put together some of […]

Get More of The Chemical Brothers!!

What’s to say here?  Chemical Brothers got it right in so many songs, but I chose this one for my DJ album because it has a great build up that works three or four different times in the song.  And the sample from “The Roof is On Fire” and you must dance! Click the image […]

Get More Front 242!!

One of the oldest tracks on the compilation.  I remember dancing to this track at a SPORTS bar in Las Vegas circa 1988.  There was this older DJ (Randy, I think) that would play goth stuff on certain nights and Hugh Herrera and I would go there and dance our asses off on their 10′ X15′ dance floor.  […]

Get More Groovezone!!

A co-worker turned me onto this track back in mid 2000 on a mixed CD he would play every week.  He had no idea who it was because it was in the middle of a bootlegged John Digweed set.  Thank god for Amazon and Google who came together to help me find this track with […]

Get More of The Capoeira Twins!!

Found this one off of a Pete Tong sampler from 2000.  Love the message, beat and throbbing bass.  Real fun track for getting ready for a night of fun.  Let me know if you have any idea how to pronounce their name please. Click the image below to get more of The Capoeira Twins through […]
