Sade | The Diva Series

Surprise! After it was brought to my attention that the David Morales remix of 'Surrender' (which heavily samples 'I Never Thought') featured in volume 3 of the Legacy series was virtually non-existent, I decided to dive deeper into my collection of Sade remixes and then went on a hunt to see what all was out there. As it turns out...Continue reading →

David Morales Legacy pt. 4

We have finally reach the end of our tribute to one of the most prolific and unquestioned godfather's of house music. David Morales Legacy pt. 4 picks up where the others left off and throws in several obscure remixes like Janet Jackson's 'When I Think Of You', Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' and First Choice's 'Love Thang'. It also includes some very early remixes that were the tipping point of 80's house, which later evolved into 90's house. Song's like Jody Watley's 'I'm the One You Need' and Lisa Fischer's 'Save Me' and Inner City's 'Whatcha Gonna Do With My Lovin'' encapsulate that 80's vibe in transition.

David Morales Legacy pt. 2

David Morales Legacy pt. 2 delves into the more commercial aspects of his career. Many of these songs were wildly successful not just in the clubs but on Top 40 radio as well. The songs stay true to his style but showcase a more diverse side with heavy influences in the Urban and Latin landscape in music at the time. No doubt, a lot of the songs here will bring back some fond memories. Enjoy!

Sia has been on my shortlist for a long time as a Diva Hall of Fame inductee. The problem as I always saw it was putting together all of the songs from an extensive career that goes back to the late 90's that were in a variety of genres and BPM's. After all, it wasn't until the middle part of the millennium that critics and folks really began to take notice of this brilliant singer/songwriter.

Well, we've made it through the very long hot summer and I'm fulfilling my promise to bring you volume 2 of the Summer Edition 2017.

Originally, I thought I wouldn't have enough to fill out this second set but boy was I wrong. In fact, I had way too much. After listening to this at least once, I went back and cut out a lot of fat that didn't need to be included.

Regardless, this is still one helluva monster mix! Continue reading →

Beach Party 2017 v2

Some how, some way I managed to pull it off. I've two, count them TWO hot off the presses sets for you folks this week.

Kicking it off, I bring you Beach Party 2017 volume 2 with smoldering EDM/Dance hits that are currently ripping up the charts and dancefloors across the globe.

Beware, we are in that period where everyone is chasing after the same sound, though I did my best to shake it up a little to keep things as fresh as possible. It's just hard to do considering what I had to work with.

From Nickelodeon to worldwide superstar, the road to stardom has been pretty much smooth sailing for the pint-sized DIVA, Ariana Grande. Granted, she isn't earning that status because of some ongoing Twitter feud with one of her contemporaries or because she's a femme fatale or even because she has a reputation for being difficult to work with. Quite the opposite, she's earned it because she's a genuine talent who is vocally gifted, genuinely sincere and backs it up with her beauty (inwards as well as outwards).

Since the original release of Selena's induction into the Diva Hall of Fame in May of last year, her star has been burning even hotter with collaborations from Kygo & Charlie Puth in addition to several more releases from her platinum album "Revival". As such, I decided to go ahead and update and expand the original release with the latest chart toppers to make it more complete.

Back in March, I had some downtime and decided to catch up on some of the Oscar-nominated movies from 2015 I had not seen yet. One of my favorites was The Big Short, a movie about betting against the American economy based on faulty subprime home loans that were being propped up by the big banks.

I made the decision to go ahead and drop Knee-Deep the latest installment of Underground House. I've finally decided on which coding bootcamp I want to attend as long as I can wrangle up the financing and have it delayed long enough to find a proper paying job.

Because I am likely the only person on the planet that does not own a laptop, I've decided the online courses via Thinkful (which has gotten rave reviews and is financially solvent) is my best option. Though, I much prefer being in a classroom setting, what appears to be very legitimate reviews of the bootcamp from a variety of sources (blogs, YouTube personal videos, etc.) gave me the guts to finally take the leap.

Just in time for your weekend pleasure, I'm dropping the MASSIVE Beach Party mix that's bound to fuel your summer celebrations!

This unabashedly commercial set kicks off with the would-be/should-be summertime hit 'Good Time' by the former lead singer of the Gap Band, Charlie Wilson. While the original is outstanding in its own right, the Moto Blanco remix adds that extra summer feelgood-ishness that makes you want to get up and DANCE! I just wish there was a full version available but I'll take whatever I can get because this song is that good.

Continuing where we left off yesterday, the 80’s was a dearth of diversity in musical styles. The primary focus over these three volumes include industrial music and its more commercial off-spring.
