dattrax: Summer is here in Toronto- the sun is shining and the temperature is at a usual beautiful 27 Degrees Celsius and higher- consistently now. Just in time for a summertime all vocal house mix! Usually like to do one of these back to back vocal mixes per year. We usually have a personal DJing rule of never mixing a vocal into a vocal, but we shelve that once per year. Think the last summer mix was "MAINSTAY" (scroll down to find it).
Hands in the air and your head bopping as you drive to this... my favourite testing ground for a new mix is nice & LOUD in the car. Drive safely though...
Been trying to find time to lay these new tracks my DJ Partner Jim and I bought over two months ago, but work has been crazy and I'm still behind some deadlines, and I don't let house music interrupt my family time with my wife and children (as much as I love it). I wish I had a soundproof room though because every time I had time, it was at 11pm or later. That's life... There's a few tracks on this mix that are almost classic house now because tons of good Toronto House DJs have been playing them since Jan & putting them in their mixes also. Good thing that great house is timeless and if someone hasn't heard it before, then it's NEW to them.
In this mix: many many tracks from Toronto's Finest Deep House Producer right now, JASON B. (in my opinion. I think 5 tracks- time for a 60min Jason B. Tribute Mix soon. It's gonna be called "TORONTO DEEP" so I got dibs on this mix name Everyone!)
The first track is Jason's treatment of SADE's Morning Bird and it's exquisite. Can't get enough of his tracks. A good house track for me is when you can listen over and over and still get a grin on your face and this refreshing feeling flow over you.
Last track is by Toronto's Nick Holder and it's one of three vocal tracks on this mix called "Heartbeat", so the name of this mix was obvious. Don't think we ever bought three house songs with the same name before- weird. We have many of Nick's vinyl records, but this is his finest remix- PERIOD- gonna blow your mind!! I first heard it on Roland Gonzalez' mix in feb2011 and freaked out!
Nick is representing Toronto in South Africa right now- much respect to one of the most successful House Producers Canada has ever produced- a pioneer in this scene. A scene that we all have grown to love more and more. I've been told that SA is the center of the House Nation right now, I don't disagree with this with so much great production coming out of SA recently for deep house, but I'm biased and think Toronto is where it's at for house music in general. Don't believe me? Blowing hot air?
