Body Throb

My most eclectic session yet. Classic remakes, trance, overdubbed R&B, reggae, cutting-edge house, and all held together with a throbbing beat that will rock your body.

Have a blast !!

Track Burns

As usual, it's a mashup of genres with heavy house, a little trance, deep percussion, classic re-makes, and for those who like to dance close, a torch song.

If you like tracks that burn the dance floor, this is your session.

Up Tempo

This is a smart, sassy session with many site favorites and features an Elvis Presley (what??!!) remake. I introduce Siren by Kat Krazy and just because of his first name, Shift Functions by Pjotr G. Dubiosity.

It'll be hard to sit still !!

Timeless

I had great fun putting this session together. It's my ususal eclectic mix of styles and tempos. Some Adrian Hour, a little Harry Romero, throw in a classic or two, a smoking beat, and you've got a party. A timeless one.

Enjoy yourselves, everybody !!

The ladies open this session with newcomer to this site Lisa Shaw and her group Mannix, who set the pace for Niki Haris and Deborah Cox, before giving way to the percussion rhythms that keep the dance floor white hot.

Break Down

We open with a Rave/Trance start, add it to my ususal eclectic middle, then close to the deep bass rhythms that make midnight so delicious. And introducing newcomer Sébastien Fauvel who harkens back to a classic club sound combined with his own boogie.

Break it down, Sébastien !!

Dance Jam

A ballad eases this session in before the pace blisters into a Dance Jam. Something fresh, something classic. Something city, something country, with newcomers Guti Legatto and Karretero slamming the beat.

Have a ball !!

Rock Hard

I intended this session to jump the dance floor, and among others a club classic 'You Sexy Thing' remade by Dolce Fuego, burns a steamy lick. Add in newcomers Phonique and David Temessi and a hot jam is underway.

Rock hard, people !!

Down Beat

I came to this session with no plan and so I let the music take me where it wanted. I won't reveal an included surprise—a remake of a club classic with a brand new intro that will leave you guessing. It rocks the oiginal!

As always, it's a mash-up of club genres made for dance. Get your move on !!

Night Blast

If you ever rocked to 'Groove is in the Heart', Gianni Bini featuring Liz Hill, smokes the remake with dazzling vocals and a hot beat.

Classics, new stuff, fan favorites, and the usual suspects are gathered to make this a night time blast. Have fun !!

Dance Hall

This was a fun session. More techno in parts than usual, but still with a hot, heavy beat. The DJ is right in the mix and the Dance Hall is jammed.

With the tremendous response I got to Joe Cocker in 'Street Jam', this one includes the most soulful, touching ballad I've ever heard. Enjoy !!

Street Jam

Except for a brief, sentimental ballad, I wanted to strip the session down to its raw elements and return to what Club/Dance is all about: tempo, vocals, and beat. Newcomer to this site, Hannah Jones, makes her debut alongside listener favorites Groove Junkies, Sebastian Ledher, and the fast-rising Adrian Hour. Have fun !!

Rhythm Heat

The Dark Continent's tribal rhythms form this session's thematic signature. Its percussive riffs can heat a dance floor wanting to be savaged. For contrast, I introduce Adrian Hour and Harry Romero to rock the pace.

And here's to a listener who asked for another mix that included Pompeya's 'Power'. As requested, Ms M. Enjoy !!

Late Night

New York clubs have shifts. This session is dedicated to those arriving after 2am. What takes you guys so long?

The mix recipe? Classic R&B, a dash of Funk, pinch of House, a little trance, some Spanish spice for flavoring, let simmer with a big orchestral finish, serve hot. Yum !!

Body Fever

When I put this session together I had in mind the Witchin Hour, when the guys are loose, the women looser and they're daring you to keep them on the dance floor.

It introduces 'Malfunction' by Emok, a really hot lick, 'Ride on Me' by 2tooDrums, and a remake of a classic: 'I'm a Man' by Macho.

Earth Shake

This mix includes two tracks influenced by DJ Staf (Behind the Groove) and DJ Unstoppable (Simple Sign). They're like Earthquakes rocking the house. Those interested can listen to them jam at House-Mixes.com.

Don't miss new artist FM Attack who opens with the introduction 'Fade Away'.

Floor Moves

This was a fun session with a great blend of genres including R&B, funk, and dance. Sebastian Ledher, fast becoming a listener favorite, brings two numbers that will move the floor: 'Baby Dolly' and 'Secrets'.

As is my wont in introducing undiscovered artists, this one features 'Deep Air' by Eitan Carmi.

Fire Dance

This was me fooling around, throwing stuff on the wall, seeing what sticks. What emerged is one of my favorite sessions, the other being Smoke House.

Following Tom Browne's 'Funkin for Jamaica' is a smokin hot number, 'Power' by the undiscovered group Pompeya.

Twice Told

Amidst this session's other madness, classic dance hits are intermingled with their modern interpretations. Groovesplitters' remake of 'Got to be Real' does Cheryl Lynn one better.

And because their appearance in Steam Funk proved so popular, INXS again dubs in, this time with 'Wicked Forest' by Man Machine.

Steam Funk

Funk and sass opens this session with the crooner himself, Al Green, leading the way. The tempo then goes upbeat featuring Peat Noise steaming the house.

After a sprinkle of trance and rave, INXS makes a surprise appearance dubbed into a funky lick by an artist with the unlikely name of Ace Ventura. It's a treat!

Time Line

If you close your eyes when this session opens, you'll see Francis at the altar rocking a packed dance floor at 7 in the morning !!

Don't miss a remake of James Brown's smash, "Too Funky in Here". Hey, James. Open the window !!

Smoke House

Here I introduce three artists leading the resurgence of club throughout Europe: Sebastian Ledher, Funkstar De Luxe, and Groove Junkies.

While giving a nod to some dance classics by the sultry Phyllis Hyman and the shameless Grace Jones, these guys bring their own updated style to that "rhythmic, pulsating beat".

Hot Stew

As the title implies, this session is a fusion of R&B, funk, soul, club and even a ballad. With Lolleata Holloway and Little Sister setting the pace, the stage is set to introduce Tony Moran.

And oh yeah. 43rd Street is definitely in the house.

Mixed Doubles

This session features a number of the same songs done by different artists and blended with modern dance, techno and deep bass rave rhythms.

For you 43rd Street denizens, don't miss the smoking remake of a Sanctuary classic by Tatjana Orfe featuring a red-hot Jocelyn Brown.

Medley Magic

Converted gyms, factories, barns, and churches became hotbeds that burned the dance floors and fueled New York City's underground club scene.

43rd Street veterans will remember Sultana, Olatunji, and Jimmy Castor to name a few. Mixed with some heavy rave, this session will start the party.

Session Notes


NOTE: Beware of ear blast. In order to accomodate mobile listeners, whose smaller screen displays may clip the track player's sound control, the default volume level is set at maximum. Please set the volume via your app or operating system to a comfortable level.

Each music mix represents a large MP3 file ranging from 60 to 80mb. The downloadable versions are zipped and with a medium connection should take 5 minutes or less. Though modern smartphones have no problem playing them, please note that some older MP3 players cannot process files this large. In that case you may have to go retro and burn a CD. That's okay. Retro's good.

Click 'Preview music mix' to have a listen while you're browsing elsewhere or click the Mixer image accompanying the session blurbs to save on the hard drive then to your mobile devices. And they're all gratis! No strings attached !!

Anyone who would like an artist and song list can email me by noting the address at the bottom of this page or click 'Contact' on the menu bar to send an email directly from the site. And if you'd like me to mix in a favorite song give a shout. I'd be happy to and I'll mention it in the session's blurb.

The on-screen track player has four controls: a Play/Pause button, a song progress bar (though depending on a cell's screen size, it may be clipped), a mute/unmute button and a volume slider.



Click the Play button to begin listening and click again to pause the session. Clicking and holding the progress bar's button permits moving to a particular track or mix. A click on the music player's loudspeaker image mutes/unmutes the sound.

Click and hold the volume slider's button to adjust the sound to a desired level.
