In this new monthly mix series from Magnier he will explore the world of harmonic mixing, or mixing in key. Each mix will be full of tracks in exactly the same key.
Have a listen below and see which key fits best for you.
A recent guest to our parties and all round gentleman Andy Hart has been going from strength to strength with his output. Always quite low slung and with the groove at the core this edit he put together for Midnight City is no different. Sandy Barber is one of our favourites here at HOD HQ and he’s done a brilliant job of working with the original elements and vocals to put together a patient dance-floor burner from a quality source. Fiyah!
This one’s been knocking around for a while but I’ve somehow only just come across it, which is weird as Tom Trago is a producer I really expect. Oh well, some of the best treats are a bit old, like a fine wine or cheese. Speaking of cheese this club ready edit treads a really nice line of keeping the original vocal relevant in an unconventional dance-floor arrangement. Would be a fun one to play when all the lights come up and the meathead bouncers are trying to kick everyone out.
Todays free track comes courtesy of the good folk over at Deep House Amsterdam. Originally premiered on Dixon’s essential mix this beautifully paced track from Downtown Party Network is really something special. Alluring and sultry vocals from Egle Sirvydyte sit perfectly with the spacious production. There’s so much room in the track, and it’s in this room that we find what makes this so emotional. Fantastic stuff from an act to keep a serious eye on. We’re also big fans of their latest release on Futureboogie.
Something for the peak time here from Felix da Housecat. We used to be big fans of Felix but recently he’s gone a different path, which we cannot walk. But this one is testament to why we liked Felix’s playful productions. This mash-up of sorts see’s Felix draw on Frankie Knuckles original, giving it some more beef and laying a strong and provocative acapella on top. Not safe for work if you work in an accountancy firm, safe just about anywhere else, especially if its a Friday. Get’s us giddy as hell!
