The first in a series of open-format mixes, you never know what you’ll get at :45 Special! This one is a HIGH ENERGY tech-house influenced mixtape. It incorporates classic dance tracks, such as Cajmere’s “Perculator” as well as disco-influenced tech house like the ones from my hurricane relief set at Flattopps. [Check out the recap video from that event here.] As always, make sure to subscribe to the mailing list to be the first to hear these sets!
Check out my latest set, live from Flattopps Astoria! Flattopps is one of my favorite venues, because I get to play stuff that I don’t get to often. Plus, I get to play on their in house vinyl system and Rane 62! Enjoy this set of funk, disco, and jackin’ house!
Check out my tech-house styled remix of Statik Link’s “Stay Awhile,” off his latest album, Carpe Momentum. When I started this remix, I really wanted to pull elements from the original track. So, I tried to incorporate more than just the original vocals, while keeping my own flavor. This track can be described as “darker” house music, with a rolling bassline and heavy synths on the drop. I really wanted to do Statik Link and his band, the Experience, justice on this track. So, I have to say “Thank You” to the following people: Eckhaus, Statik Link, Loup Rouge,and La Patilla, for listening to my constant revisions; and Black Ivan, for teaching me how to mix and master.

Check out my latest mashup! When I heard the new Zedd track, I’m not going to lie, it took me a bit of time to fall in love with it. All of a sudden, it hit me that I could have a lot of fun mashing it up. So,taking a hint from my interview with DJ Trayze, I decided to take a chance with wordplay.
This mashup uses a common lyric as the mixing point between two songs. Have you ever done anything similar? Let me know in the comments!
I’m SUPER excited to release this mashup! Unfortunately, I’ve had to drop off the radar and step away from working on my blog to focus on academics and other facets of my life, but luckily I’ve still had time to devote to making mashups and remixes! “Light It Up, Starboy” is a party banger, perfect for when the crowd is already hyped up, but they just need that extra something to crank things up to 11. I hope you enjoy this mashup!
