DEAD AIR BASS 44 (INFLUENZA) ((JULY 2017))

I’ve literally had the idea for this episode since I started DAB, back in 2013. An entire hour filled with songs that I have sampled in my bootlegs, remixes, and original productions. It’s the first of several very special projects I’ll be releasing as part of the FINAL 10. I call this one INFLUENZA. Why…



QUICK MIX VAULT: DKGL QUICK HITTER PACK 003 (90s)

I asked the people what the theme of the next QUICK HITTER 10 PACK should be and it was unanimous: 90s TUNES!!!

Now, at this point, the 90s have been done to death, so I wanted to make sure the 10 songs I’ve chosen are not ones you’re going to find edits of ANYWHERE…



TOP 10 of 2015

I’m not big on count downs. This is just about the only time you’ll see one on this blog. An ordered list of the 10 songs I gave the most support to over the past 365. It’s an annual tradition now running 6 years long.



THROWBACK THURSDAYS: NITRO DELUXE & PROTECTING OUR PIONEERS

I’m not sure exactly how we’d go about it, but I feel like we really need to take care of our ground breaking musical pioneers. So often, they end up passing away with nothing to show for their ventures except a lifetime of hardship. I hope that no other artist, who has made a significant…



DEAD AIR ELECTRO 029 (SUBSPACE EDITION with Craig & Warmuffin) ((MARCH 2015))

I just moved back to Toronto, and there’s such a buzz going on here about SUBSPACE. It’s a fetish themed club night, and also an enviable dungeon studio. I’ll be joined by its owner and creator, CRAIG, along with his resident DJ, WARMUFFIN, to school me on the sites and sounds of the Subspace experience….

I NEVER GET SICK

Okay, not literally never, but I honestly can’t remember the last time I was ill, hangovers aside, which I will often claim as sickness to avoid judgement. Ha! But I only see my doctor once every few years, and I…



DEAD FRIDAYS: NYC BOOTLEGGIN’

My good buddy, ROCCO FERRER, once mentioned that some of his all-time favourite tracks are BOOTLEG REMIXES. I have to agree with him there. Some of the best music in the world gets made without permission from the original artists. A Bootleg is often the result of a good producer hearing something they…



THROWBACK THURSDAYS: ODB, THE FOLK HERO OF HIP-HOP

There’s so much that can be said about OL DIRTY BASTARD that it’s nearly impossible to narrow it into a manageable article of highlights. Instead, I’ll just focus on a couple main points to sum up one of the most interesting figures in the history of music.



THROWBACK THURSDAYS: BEFORE GABBER THERE WAS HOLY NOISE

OLDSCHOOL RAVERS, this Thursday is yours!

 

HOLY NOISE

  Before PAUL ELSTAK would go on to become the single most important figure in the development of HARD DANCE culture, he was one third of a pioneering RAVE…



THROWBACK THURSDAYS: WHAT HAPPENED TO NU NU???

Here’s an interesting case of “hey, what happened?”

LIDELL TOWNSELL – NU NU

 

You won’t often see this single included in any CLASSIC HOUSE compilations, despite the fact that it was a #1 HIT back in 1992. It’s possible…
