This month is a follow up of sorts to my “August in the City” downtempo podcast from 2008. My girlfriend and I had tons of fun over the last year while she lived downtown . However, we are enjoying ourselves even more now that we live together out in the suburbs. The pace is a bit slower, and I have to say… that is right up my alley! 🙂
You will find some great chillout, downtempo, samba, bossa, and even a pretty funky MJ remix in this month’s podcast. Enjoy!
A couple of times a year I take a break from the downtempo tunes and put together a mix with some great house or breakbeat tunes. This year, I went a little more progressive than I have in the past few years and am pretty darn happy with the outcome. Enjoy!
Here is the tracklist:
01. Adam K & Soha – Who Cares
02. Deadmau5 – Faxing Berlin (Chris Lake Edit)
03. Radiohead – Everything in its Right Place (Gigamesh Remix v2.0)
04. Christian Weber – Electronic Love (Club Mix)
05. Kaskade &Deadmau5 – I Remember (Vocal Mix)
06. Luigi Lusini – Imago
07. 16 Bit Lolitas & Glowfield – Calling New York
08. Julius Beat – The Silence (Yuan Remix)
09. Pryda – Melo
10. Chris Lake Ft. Laura V – Changes (Vocal Club Mix)
11. Moony – I Don’t Know Why (Dj Chus & Jerome Isma-Ae Superdub Mix)
This month’s podcast is a continuation of my “Space Traveler” series and is once again dedicated to the folks over at Lounge Radio. I try to add an episode to this series every year and I figured it was time to slow things down, and, bring out the deeper side of downtempo for this month’s show.
I took a trip to Berlin in July and had an amazing time. I had the opportunity to visit a few clubs, lounges, and bars. It really seems that Germans love their Minimal Electronica. I was pretty surprised just how much that trip influenced my song selection this month. Almost inadvertently I found myself seeking out deeper, minimal types of music to mix along with ambient and chill out tunes. I am quite pleased with what came about from that subconscious decision. After listening to the complete episode, I am quite sure that Berlin has forever left its mark in my heart.
This month’s chillout podcast includes a wonderful selection of deeper chillout music, ambient, and what do you know… even a few minimal tunes. 🙂 Enjoy!
Datapusher was good enough to send over another excellent Drum and Bass mix just in time for the weekend. The mix is full of smoothed out DNB on the liquid tip… super melodic, dreamy, spaced out… AWESOME! This might be my favorite mix that he has sent over thus far.
Be sure to check out Datapusher’s podcast at http://datapusher.podomatic.com. He has informed me that he has quite a few new episodes on the way. From Breaks, to old-school, to DNB… he’ll have you covered.
Okay, it is time to bring things back home and slow the tempo down some again. This month I bring us “Back to The Lounge” with some great samba, bossanova, some awesome covers, and overall, just a loungey feel. Pour a martini and take a load off, it is time to chill out.
I am planning a trip to Berlin in the very near future and would love some recommendations of lounges, bars, clubs, and record stores to visit with a jazz, downtempo, or lounge, influence. If any of my listeners from Germany have some insight, please email me at chola @ podomatic.com. Thanks! 🙂
