Try to make ter is also helpful. This way you arrangements with the other DJ to can momentarily cut the sound to use the wireless mic only at certain the transmitter, but still have the times.
Set up your mics make a loud popping noise wireless mic to get the most out of when you turn the transmitter off. Try not to place the base unit receiver where the antenna's are The mute switch allows you to inside your rack. These units give off radio mic channel on your mixer before frequencies and can interfere with shutting off the transmitter. Usually the best place for a nce you've made your receiver is on a table or on the purchase, there are a few floor.

Joanne Smith the former Mrs. The beat pounds as she makes her way to the head table where her family and closest friends are waiting. The DJ asks everyone to remain standing and turns the cordless mic over to Joanne, who not only proposes a toast on her own behalf, but thanks her guests for their support through her tough times and to let everyone know she has got her life back together. The DJ then announces Following the meal comes the cake cutting.
Guests are asked to gather around and witness a strange and unusual ritual. Our ex-bride goes over to the cake which is in the shape of a full bodied male, assumably an animated replica of her ex, with a big red heart in the middle. She proceeds to cut the cake by first cutting out the heart and eating it, all to the approval of her guests.
Good background music for this weird ritual is Bruce Springsteen's Hungry Heart.

With a mostly young crowd mid-twenties to late thirties it was easy to turn the boat's lounge into a dance club.

With a full dancefloor, announce something like "And now ladies and gentlemen, it's time for our parade of beauties and I would like to introduce our contestants. Then have each pick a partner from the crowd or you can select the men too.
Next, have each of the ladies put on one of the smocks. Then explain that when you start the music you want the guys to rip open the bags and start stuffing balloons into the large overall, one-piece, smocks on the ladies.

So how do you make the choice? What are you really looking for? In terms of what works well in the real world of the Mobile DJ or KJ, the first priority is rock solid reality. You can't afford a breakdown. Even if you have a spare amp in the truck, it's still a hassle. So it's best to start off with something you can trust right out of the box. Next, of course, is sound quality. A reliable amp that puts out noise and distortion may be marginally better than no amp at all, but only in a dire emergency. So how does all this apply to Crest's new V Series? Accepting the fact that there is no easy way on a bench test to adequately determine an amplifier's reliability in the real world, we simply do the best we can to get them to break.

Plug in any fullrange signal and the bandpass subwoofer will only reproduce the low frequencies from 35 Hz to Hz.
The MTX PWRS15 is an 8 ohm subwoofer, giving you the ability to parallel a typical 8 ohm 12" and a horn fullrange cabinet loading the amplifier to 4 ohms and increasing its power output. As long as you have sufficient power amplification for your fullrange cabinets, there isn't a need to purchase another power amplifier for the bandpass subwooferl In addition, there's less distortion. Distortion elements are upper harmonics of low frequency fundamental notes.

Protecting your sound investment and your lower back from the perils of on-the-road travel. If you can safely get by with less equipment, it's really worth the time and trouble to reconfigure your rack with only those items you really need to bring. Sure it's nice to impress the client and audience with your gigawatt amplifiers and bone-softening bass cabinets. Leave the ego at home and bring your brains Ball castors are great for speakers and items with a fixed load, but are unwise for equipment racks.
This approach enables you to start with a single unit and later add additional modules to grow with your system needs and budget. DJs with large systems should consider the benefits of smaller modular racks and cases over large console racks and road cases. Scratch DJs, especially those who tour with rap acts, use compact turntable and mixer cases to speed their trip through airport baggage areas. Small, compact road cases can be packed more efficiently and with less wear and tear on your car than large equipment rack and console cases.
When purchasing modular racks and cases, pay close attention to cable ports to ensure that adjoining. Imagine for a moment a shopping cart, golf cart, cannister vac or riding lawnmower without wheels. The very thought is terrifying. Imagine again dragging pound speakers and a pound equipment rack out to your ride without the benefit of wheels. A truly horrifying thought.
And, sad to say, but there are a few manufacturers out there who are slapping the wrong travel hardware on their equipment racks and speaker cabinets. Castors are the most popular type of travel hardware found today on speakers and equipment racks. There are two types of castors: SKB's "Shock Rack" case system features an internal frame mounted on coiled shock absorbers on all eight corners. Most rack and case purchases come as an afterthought to the main equipment buy. You've sunk a ton of money into your sound system, now it's time to protect your investment.

The modular design lets you break your system down into as many components as necessary. New Order — True Faith 9. Belinda Carlisle — True Heaven idea by Payroll Smokey Robinson — Tears of a Clown Missy Elliott — Lose Control Kraftwerk — Home Computer It's kind of impressive that "remix culture" had become such a part of the music world by this point that the show was put in touch with Nine Inch Nails' people as part of a remix contest, which I actually asked for submissions for on the air and got like 20 or 30, I seem to remember, and then people actually voted, and Russell Vargas won.
Anyway, the show makes the mistake of playing around with the NIN vocal even after 4 minutes of Russell's mix, and it gets a bit tired even when accompanied by the still blazingly awesome "Bone Machine. I have no idea, honestly. I would say I wish I'd had a quality acapella of "Beat It" to put over Gorillaz at the time because man that would have really worked, but unfortunately the extracted pella I'm using here is pretty sloppy and kind of ruins the whole thing.
Clever to match up the computer arpeggios from Missy Elliott and LCD Soundsystem with their grandparents Kraftwerk, but I'm not sure it's that much fun to listen to, and then more Kraftwerk, with the first apperance of a mashup that ended up being a favorite with some fans but I always thought was kinda half-hearted.
Anyway, like a couple shows around this time, I have to give this an A for Effort, but that doesn't excuse the sloppiness and as Nina Garcia might say, the "taste level. Tears for Fears — Shout a capella 4. Stevie Wonder — Superstition 6. Black Eyed Peas vs. Gorillaz — Dirty Harry 9. Yes — Lonely Rebellion Party Ben mashup Killers — Somebody's Sunglasses Team9 mashup This is an episode with a lot of really interesting work from other people, but not really connected that well by me.
We kick off with DJ John, a Bay Area guy who didn't make a ton of stuff, but what he made was always a barnstormer, and this track, while based around the Eagles and the "Da Funk" beat, uses a pile of samples to sort of create a chorus out of nothing. I really wish my attempt to marry Arcade Fire with the Max Graham mix of Yes was as successful but it never quite gels.
Some awkward transitions between awesome mashups follow. It's more of a showcase, I guess, which is fine, since this was the heyday of amateur mashuppery, but as an overall show, it's choppy. OutKast — Bombs over Baghdad 3. Cyndi Lauper — She-Bop 4. Beck — Girl 5. Soulwax — Any Minute Now Whitey remix 7. Gwen Stefani — Mickey's Orchid Fidelski mashup 8.
Gorillaz — Feel Good Inc a capella Green Day vs Depeche Mode vs. Well, so, apparently something in the air in mid-July or perhaps finally being sick of producing lackluster shows all summer inspired me to get back on the horse, so to speak, and Sixx Mixx 94 begins a run of more or less quality shows until the sigh end of the Sixx Mixx in December. This episode isn't perfect but it aims high, and starts with a mashup that was always a personal favorite, despite the fact that its source material on the QOTSA side at least wasn't exactly well known.
This episode does the opposite of my usual Sixx Mixx and DJ set strategy of continually increasing the tempo, and in fact slows down with each song, but that in and of itself doesn't detract, I don't think. The last 10 minutes falter, sure, with some familiar stuff and a lumbering, awkward remix of "Bizarre Love Triangle" sorry, Crystal Method, but it doesn't hold up. But it does feature the first appearance of the towering, legendary "Greenday Massacre" which was to eventually inspire the Dean Gray album coproduction with Team9, and the mix out of Lovemakers foreshadows the final episode.
Flipsyde — Someday acoustic version 3. Moby — Natural Blues Moby's remix 4. The Chemical Brothers — The Boxer 5. The Freestylers — B-Boy Stance 8. Queen — Doorbell Encore Team9 mashup 9. Ils — Cherish Gorillaz — Dirty Harry U2 — All Because of You Killahurtz remix So, this episode is pretty bad, but a it's not quite as bad as some of the clunkers earlier in the summer and b it marks pretty much the final not so great episode of the Sixx Mixx, as next week's show starts a run of adequacy that continues until the end.
We kick off with an extraordinarily ill-advised combo, as I'd had such success with my previous Lyrics Born production, but I remember really racking my brain to come up with something to put with his followup "I'm Just Raw," and boy, Audioslave sure wasn't it. However, the brief layering of the forgotten Flipsyde over the intro the Chem's "Boxer" is really quite lovely, and the middle section with all the White Stripes and Joan Jett is fun, at least. Things go off the rails entirely at Dirty Harry, that NIN mix is abysmal, and then I just give up and play a couple of other people's tracks without even really doing much to them.
So, again, despite my best efforts to make a terrible show, there are bright spots. The White Stripes — Blue Orchid 4. Gwen Stefani — Hella Good a capella 6. New Order — Blue Monday 9. Interpol — Evil The Pixies — Wave of Mutilation Daft Punk — Technologic Devo — Whip It Daft Punk — Technologic Basement Jaxx remix vs. Guns 'n' Roses vs. Pepper's Paradise Jimmy Jammes mashup Commentary: Will Smith — Switch 3. David Bowie — Fame 4. Filter — Hey Man Nice Shot 5. Daft Punk — Robot Rock 6. Modest Mouse — Ocean Breathes Salty 9. Lyrics Born "Callin' Out" acapella Jane's Addiction "Been Caught Stealing" The Beatles — Sgt.
Pepper's Paradise Jimmy Jammes mashup Gwen Stefani — Hollaback Orchid Fidelski mashup Electric 6 — Mickey at the Gay Bar Cropstar mashup Overall a sludgy and unfun show, despite some fun individual mashups, not made by me. The less said about including Will Smith's "Switch" here the better, and the turgid layering of "Hey Man Nice Shot" over "Fame" is more or less unlistenable. The overall terribleness is made all the more evident in comparison with Go Home Productions' thrilling "Breaking My Bloody Process," which still gets my blood pumping to this day.
And of course, the Star Wars version of Liam Lynch is still laugh out loud funny. The three Scientific Sixx Mixx points being awarded here are despite my own work, not because of it. Green Day — Boulevard of Broken Dreams 2. Lyrics Born — Callin' Out a capella 3. Franz Ferdinand — Take Me Out 7. Blursabian — There's No L. Party Ben mashup 8. Aerosmith — Dream O n Live Commentary: This isn't really the place to reconsider the decision to theme my DJ set in the Subsonic Tent at BFD around remixes and mashups of other artists performing on the festival bill, although one could easily say to Party Ben, "What the hell are you doing?
That is a supremely terrible idea. Take like 30 seconds of these wasted hours and go buy some Google stock! Mixes sound forced and awkward, and it's just kind of confusing. Let's pretend it never happened, and that I'm currently in my pool I bought with Google stock. Roy Lichtenstein, "Sleeping Girl," The Police — Message in a Bottle 5. Green Day — She 6. The Cure — Walking Dead Party Ben mashup Beck — Girl Postal Service — Such Great Heights The Cure — Close to Me Despite the cheekiness of the episode title, "mediocre" is pushing it, and "best" is clearly misinformed.
After the small but important successes of the previous two shows, this is a big step back -- why didn't I just play a repeat?? Franz Ferdinand — Take Me Out 3. Houston — I Like That 4. Alice Cooper — School's Out 7. The Timelords — Doctorin' the Tardis 8. Green Day — Holiday 9. The Beatles — Lovetax Team9 mashup Interpol - Evil Devo — Whip It Commentary: At the time, a few '80s themed radio stations had just popped up, so, yeah.
Anyway, while this set does rely heavily on some corny new wave, it's actually a pretty good little half hour, and even its missteps are sort of admirable efforts, and of course, we get the first prototype of what would eventually be a "major" for me Party Ben track. The Thomas Dolby section at the top is amusing enough, and then we veer into a pre-name version of "Dr.
Beck — Ghettochip Malfunction Hell Yes remix by 8-bit 4. Beck — Hell Yes Original 5. Z-Trip — Death Star Boogie 6. Eric Clapton — I Shot the Sheriff 7. Chemical Brothers — Galvanize Extended Mix 8. Cake — Love You Madly Gwen Stefani — Hollaback Girl a capella Alive djbc mashup Will Smith — Switchin' Alive Cheekyboy mashup So, one of my great regrets is that I didn't come up with one of my most popular mashups during the actual reign of the Sixx Mixx, or at a time when it would have likely been a sensation rather than just a fan favorite, and this show proves just how dense I must be to have missed it.
This episode aired one day after the release of "Revenge of the Sith," in the midst of a sort of worldwide Star Wars mania. Moreover, I actually play Z-Trip's "Death Star Boogie," the obvious inspiration for "Galvanize the Empire," mere seconds before "Galvanize" itself, and instead of discovering their potential musical partnership, I spend a few minutes doodling around with "I Shot the Sheriff. Can you imagine how popular "Galvanize the Empire" would have been if I'd put it out that day? I would have been king of the world. One of the central early pioneers of the "American style" of mashuppery was the Las Vegas Inhumanz crew.
Often preferring to release their tracks on vinyl or white labels and eschewing the internet, it seems to me they're somewhat unsung nowadays, despite the fact that their work spread far and wide. As DJ Create's guest mixx proves, their tracks found their way even into the hands of Howard Stern, whose radio show I worship to this day but whose musical taste could never really be described as "adventurous. This is the sound of The Beatles — Eleanor's in my Head Team9 mashup 6.
Batman — To The Taxmobile Lenlow mashup Caesars — Jerk it Out Kelly — Dollar Bill Abba — Money, Money Money Pink Floyd — Money Gwen Stefani — Rich Girl Dire Straits — Money for Nothing This is a show that, judging by the playlist, should be good, but it just isn't, with the segues awkward and forced and the various mashups feeling a bit random. It just gets worse from there, with a far too sudden and weird mix into the Human League, and then I speed up Human League even more to make it "flow" into QOTSA but it just sounds terrible. I hate my layering of Journey over the Prodigy after Zebra's White Stripes mix, and while it's admirable I made an attempt to play some MIA in prime time, it's also pretty random.
Then somehow the humor and delight of the previous subject matter mixes "Fire," specifically, in Sixx Mixx 72, still makes me chuckle is completely lost here in the Money mix. Maybe it's that I had to speed everything up to fit over the MIA beat, but something just feels off and not funny or fun, even though there's something possibly proto-Earwormy about the arrangement of various songs at the end.
Overall this is just not good at all.

Plus I listened ahead and things really don't pick up again save Create's at Episode 86 until June or July, so feel free to come back then. Dennis Hopper, "Hippie Girl Dancing," The Police — Message in a Bottle 7. Franz Ferdinand — Michael 8. The Yardbirds — For Your Love George Michael — Freedom Rage Against the Machine vs. Gwen Stefani — Rich Girl a capella While the preceeding months had seeming been spent defending my show from attackers on all fronts, I was seemingly unable to translate that passion into episodes that were actually good , and while there are a few moments of interest this week, it's mostly a bust, and at times unlistenable.
It's the first appearance of another listener-suggested mashup, Cake vs. Gorillaz, which is OK, and the GHP combo that follows proves that even when he was making a "throwaway" he was operating at the peak of his powers. The smidgen of QOTSA over The Police is kind of nice, as is the quick shot of Yardbirds, and there are some fun tracks by a slew of local Bay Area talent, but somehow it all adds up to less than the sum of its parts, with awkward, forced segues.
The best thing about this episode is its title, a direct quote from then-just-ascendant Pope Benedict XVI, who as Cardinal Ratzinger in described rock and roll as "the complete antithesis of the Christian faith in the Redemption," saying that music culture was a "secularized variation of an age-old type of religion in which man uses music — and drugs and alcohol — to lower the barriers of individuality and personality, to liberate himself from the burden of consciousness.
Jean-Antoine Watteau, "Qu'ay je fait, assassins maudits," Right-click for direct download: Bloc Party — Banquet Phones Disco remix 4. Iggy Pop — The Passenger 5. Green Day — Longview 6. Stray Cats — Stray Cat Strut 7. Green Day — Holiday 8. Green Day — Boulevard of Broken Dreams Aerosmith — Dream On Blondie — Heart of E Dsico mashup So, roundabout now, we were in an era of Sixx Mixx Backlash. The local alt rag SF Weekly had taken a stance against my show and portrayed me dead and naked, floating in the Bay , and in an interview with Z-Trip, one of their writers had egged him on to the point he made a series of insulting if nonsensical comments about mashups, his point being that producers were "fake" DJs, and every mashup idea was "bit from a DJ.
Trip live on the air and asked me to come in and talk to him about this stuff. It was all very strange for me as I had long worshipped Z-Trip's mix albums and live shows and considered him a great inspiration for the Sixx Mixx, and his comments made no sense to me. While I tried to be respectful in our conversation, the effort more or less backfired, and I found myself the target of even more attacks from furious Z-Trip fans. At the time, all this negativity was really upsetting to me--I was just trying to make a fun show for commuters driving home and suddenly people were acting like I was a monster and a fraud.
What I wish I understood then was the concept of "trolling"; it was the early days of the internet pre-YouTube even! And of course, Z-Trip's own overreaction was similar to secretly gay politicians railing against gay rights, as it turned out that of course he had been using software to make edits he was playing live. In any event, that's what the last track of the mixx is all about, and it includes some of that conversation with Z-Trip.
As far as the first 27 minutes of the show goes, it's okay, with wayyyy too much Queens of the Stone Age to start with and some extremely awkward mixing with various Green Day songs, as well as major segments of previous shows. So, um, not exactly the best show to prove the haters wrong House of Pain — Jump Around 3.
Stooges — Slash '69 DJ Zebra mashup 6. DJ Godzilla mashup There were countless DJs and producers who contributed amazing work to the Sixx Mixx, from one-off novelties to entire guest shows, and all of them are awesome in their own ways. But out of all of them, I think it was French producer Antoine Minne a. DJ Zebra who most "got" the show. Of course, that's partially because we were sort of living parallel lives: Of course, Monsieur Zebra has gone on to become a veritable superstar in France, whereas I'm sitting here typing this on a Saturday night.
But partially thank to his championing of my work, I had a brief spurt of notoriety in France and was lucky enough to DJ there multiple times, and always felt a connection to the place. And of course over the years we've become good friends as well. On the subject of this episode specifically, it's a corker. He kicks off with a radically reworked version of the popular Franz Ferdinand mix, and the set just knocks it out of the park over and over, touching on LIVE faves like Kasabian and Radio 4 and tossing in more Sixx Mixx favorites like his Prince vs.
Jet combo and his Kinks remix. We also get the debut of his Shaggy vs. Rage track, which would go on to be a bit of a thing. Queen — We Will Rock You acapella 2. Queen — We Will Rock You acapella 3. Kasabian — Reason is Treason 6. The Chemical Brothers — Galvanize 8. The Chemical Brothers — Galvanize unknown remix 9. You'd think, with Dr. Demento-style musical prankery at the core of what the Sixx Mixx was about, I would have treated an April Fool's Day Mixx with just a little more care.
Deep Purple — Smoke on the Water 3. Outkast - The Way You Move 9. Tone Loc - Wild Thing Newcleus - Space Is The Place The Bravery — Honest Mistake Superdiscount remix Dwarf Punk — Da Phunk Colour Me Badd vs. I'm guessing the title refers to a cold or flu or something I had, and with that in mind, this episode isn't so bad. This is an early draft which I ended up calling Version 1. Most of the episode rips from previous shows, the 80s hip hop segment from Episode 24, for instance.
I do like that weird remix of E-Pro at the end, and then we get a totally silly but still chuckle-worthy to my immature ear at least medley of Colour Me Badd with the Pat O'Brien phone messages that had just come to light. Overall though, the episode feels awkward and forced together, and a little flu-y.
Chris Wood "Spira" Right-click for direct download: Daft Punk — Robot Rock 2. Twisted Sister — I Wanna Rock 3. The Cure — Hot Hot Hot!!! Kidz Bop Kids — Float On 7. Beastie Boys — Triple Trouble a capella Stone Roses — Fools Gold Europe — Somebody's Countdown Lionel Vinyl mashup Smashing Pumpkins — New Originals mix My parents were actually visiting and in the studio during the broadcast, thus the name. Anyway, so even then, the week of its release, I was really trying to force myself to like "Robot Rock," which in its original form is super boring and irritating, something that's hard to remember post-Daft Punk Alive which put the track to such perfect use.
But even trying to liven it up with "I Wanna Rock," it's a tough sell to start the whole show with it. Thankfully things get better fast, with two delightful Cure mashups and then the classic Dolly Parton into Royksopp segment from Radio Soulwax which always seemed to kick the Sixx Mixx into high gear when I played it. Then we get a couple upbeat remixes and a finale that was actually an audience suggestion -- people would write me all the time in the Sixx Mixx heyday with ideas but they were usually like "hey Party Ben you dumb fatso, mix together Green Day and Green Acres.

Blackstreet — "Blacksmiths" StvD mashup The Music — "Breakin'" Jane's Addiction — "Been Caught Stealing" This episode is just the majority of episode 66 with different first and last tracks.

Nirvana — Lithium Dirty Funker mix 8. Soulwax — Teachers The Chemical Brothers — Galvanize Switch remix Tone Loc — Funky Cold Medina Foreigner — Hot Blooded Franz Ferdinand — This Fire Playgroup mix U2 — Vertigo Jacknife Lee 10" mix From start to almost finish, this episode kind of epitomizes the strutting electro-rock sound that was such a thing in the mids.
While Mylo's angular take on "Somebody Told Me" is, I would argue, one of his less successful efforts, it sets the jaunty tone for this episode. Immediately following we get the first prototype appearance of a mashup that would go on to be one of my most well-known tracks, mixing the Killers with the Clash, the best by far of the three quick tryouts we get right in a row boy I sure had to speed up New Order to make it work there didn't I. The remix of "Galvanize" marks the first Sixx Mixx appearance of Switch, a guy who would go on to become one of my favorite producers of the s--his original "This is Sick" and work on MIA's Arular would both come out later in Anyway, back to the Mixx: We get a little more Soulwax in their mix of LCD Soundsystem, and if I'm honest, this whole episode is more than most, even a kind of 2manydjs tribute, with its non-stop driving tempo and back-and-forth between rock and electro.
As is well known, Negativeland and SST were sued and force to withdraw the release of their "U2" EP, on the grounds that the cover, featuring "U2" in large type, might confuse actual U2 fans. What's ironic is this actually happened to me in I was flipping through the stacks at my local record emporium in Minneapolis, and came across the EP, not knowing what it was, I was like, "why have I never heard of this U2 album called 'Negativland'?
After Club Sixxx - Summer of Lust (Paperback)
Boy, did I feel stupid later. But I think playing it on drive time radio in the band's hometown of San Francisco, 13 years later, makes up for that a little bit. The Beastles Beastie Boys vs. Beck — Hell Yes 4. The Chemical Brothers — Galvanize 5. The Chemical Brothers — Galvanize half. The Bravery — Honest Mistake Duran Duran — Planet Earth Bloc Party — Banquet Phones Disco edit The Cure — A Forest Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama reprise I think what was both a positive and maybe a negative about the Sixx Mixx was that I had very strict "rules" about what I would play, and how I would mix things together.
As a prime-time show on a mainstream alternative radio station, I wanted to be very conscientious about keeping the music both familiar and friendly to that audience as well as just fucked up enough that there was, you know, a reason to tune in and people would go "whoa. With the mixing, I was very strict with myself as well, really trying to mix in key and not just throw hip hop vocals over the latest indie favorite, and trying to be as true to the tracks' original pitch and tempo as possible. On the positive side, this hard work made the show popular with a wide group of people and individual shows are, at their best, cohesive and focused.
On the negative side, it meant that I repeated a lot of tracks, since there were so few that qualified like say Slide 's remix of "Seven Nation Army, a hugely popular song turned into an awesomely new but still recognizable remix. It also meant I wasn't ever able to make the sort of conceptual leap to the next "big thing" in mashuppery: Girl Talk -style hyperspeed mayhem, jumping from track to track without worrying so much about every combo being perfect. A little bit of freedom to just "muck about" might have made the show more fun and my Thursday nights might have ended earlier.
But what's good about this era of the show is that while there's still some repetition from one week to the next, I feel like it's more about taking the most successful segments of previous episodes and improving on them, building on them. The show really feels like it's "evolving" around this time, mutating in fun and exciting ways even while maintaining themes we might have heard a week or two ago.
Anyway, starting at the beginning, we get the first play of another of bc' s fine Beastles tracks, and the first play of Mei-Lwun 's towering "Sweet Home Country Grammar. The Gwen Stefani section in the middle isn't my favorite, to be honest I wasn't a fan of "What You Waiting For," but the mashups are fun and quality efforts. We get the debut of Bloc Party 's "Banquet" -- some big first plays on this episode! I should probably have fleshed out a full fledged mashup from the Cure thing. Now, I really wanted to come back around to "Sweet Home Alabama" at the end, as a kind of "reprise," but I couldn't quite make it work -- I even sang the chorus myself to add a little oomph to the vocals in the absence of an acapella.
I guess the idea is good enough that I can give it a pass, but I cringe a bit hearing it. Anyway, overall I feel like this episode is still pretty much a home run despite a few stumbles here and there and perhaps a bit of a slow front section, and if you take all my arcane rules into consideration, it's hard to imagine an episode fulfilling those goals better.
The Killers — "Mr. Brightside" Thin White Duke remix 2. Van Halen — "Jump" unknown white label breaks remix 3. Presidents of the USA — "Lump" 4. Peaches — "Kinky Peaches" unknown white label mashup 6. The Caesars — "Jerk it Out" 9. Kasabian — "Reason is Treason" Interpol — "PDA" Devo — "Working in a Coal Mine" The Knack — "My Sharona" Franz Ferdinand — "This Fire" Madonna — "Burnin' Up" Ash — "Burn Baby Burn" The Trammps — "Disco Inferno" Jimi Hendrix — "Fire" Duran Duran — "A View to a Kill" Prodigy — "Firestarter" Electric 6 — "Danger High Voltage" Deep Purple — "Smoke On the Water" The Cult — "Fire Woman" Bloodhound Gang — "Fire Water Burn" Talking Heads — "Burnin' Down the House" Bruce Springsteen — "I'm On Fire" Ohio Players — "Fire" The Pixies — "Dig for Fire" Johnny Cash — "Ring of Fire" While this episode contains as its gooey center about nine minutes of Sixx Mixx 64, for some reason that doesn't bother me too much here, probably because it feels like I took the best part of that episode and then surrounded it with more excitement.
We kick things off in the Sixx Mixx tradition of starting with a brand new release, which is good and bad -- I liked featuring new music, but hearing one song for four minutes can be a bit of a drag. Brightside" that would go on to win a Best Remix Grammy, and it's honestly really good, so we'll allow it. The Van Halen to Interpol section is odd but enjoyable, and there's a high level of difficulty with all those loud rock tracks. I also still really enjoy the raucous section of Mixx 64 which seems to mash up mashups until songs are swirling around like toys in a kid's room when there's a poltergeist.
What's funny is that despite the silly concept, I do kind of like the track's production, layering as it does the Devo bassline over it all. Anyway, then we come to the "fire" megamix. I had actually done this sort of thing as a teenager, I think I made a "baby" mix on my cassette player.
I don't know what inspired me to do try it again here, but I remember having to sort of argue with myself, part of me thinking it was dopey and childish, another part of me giggling with glee. Obvoiusly that part always wins. Originally broadcast version download: Soup Dragons — "I'm Free" 3. Led Zeppelin — "Whole Lotta Love" 4. Faith No More — "Epic" 6. Jay-Z — "99 Problems a capella 7. Chemical Brothers — "Galvanize" 9. Chemical Brothers — "Galvanize" half.
The Bravery "Honest Mistake" Duran Duran — "Planet Earth" We kick off somewhat refreshed, with what is overall a bright and witty episode. Of course you have to get through another appearance of Blur vs. Kasabian before things really get rolling, but once they do, it's pretty fun. It marks the first appearance of my Led Zeppelin vs.
Snoop mashup which went on to be a fan favorite, but I have to say I enjoy the Soup Dragons being used as a "bridge" to get there even more entertaining. The transition to Faith No More totally makes me chuckle, and of course nice to see a little MIA in the mix the track had just been released in late Then a bunch of other mashups make their show debuts: Payroll's driving The Music remember them??
Then, as in Sixx Mixx 49, I steal a few minutes from 2manydjs which put to shame anything I've ever done, two super-cool exclusive tracks they included in a BBC Essential Mix that I would have happily played myself if I'd had them. I even wrote to Gomma requesting a promo CD of "Satisfaction" so I could play a non-radio-rip copy since it was completely unavailable in the US; they were kind enough to write back and say "No, we don't care about American promotion.
So yeah this is a "cheat" and whatever, lifting another radio show, but from the standpoint of the finished product, it fits right in. So, like I said, overall it's an appealingly silly episode, if not exactly ground-breaking. Grandaddy — Alan Parsons in a Winter Wonderland 9. Low — Just Like Christmas Commentary: In , I sort of "punted" on acknowledging the holiday season. Plus, the show itself would fall on Christmas eve which seemed the perfect time to try out an all-Christmas novelty Mixx.
In effect I just took Riko's set and sort of dumbed it down for the LIVE audience, adding in some favorite mashups and alt-y tracks Grandaddy! But it's mostly thanks to Riko, and it turns out he's still making his Christmas sets, which you can download at his website here. U2 "Sunday Bloody Sunday" 4. Beck — "Where It's At" 6. Steve Miller "Tipsy Butterfly" 7. Modest Mouse "Float On" 8. Beastie Boys "Intergalactic" 9. Beastie Boys "Intergalactic Friends" Ultra mashup Nirvana "Rape Me" Chemical Brothers "Galvanize" Another hodgepodge of previous episodes, although it does flow pretty nicely.
The obscure Kasabian remix makes more sense if you consider that LIVE added five Kasabian songs to its playlist around this time. I've called him the Metallica of Mashuppers--an artist who elevated an often adolescent and novelty-focused genre case in point, me into true art, the act that both defines and stands above the style itself.
I can't remember if we had him coming in to play at Bootie this week or if this set was apropos of nothing, but it's a real barnstomer, and Mr. Vidler clearly made the effort to keep things alt-rock-radio friendly, something that always made me nervous with guest mixxerz since I was kind of a control freak.
Anyway, it's a real honor he was on the show. Chemical Brothers — "Galvanize" 2. Grandmaster Flash — White Lines 6. That in itself is pretty silly. Most weeks I would finish up the mix, burn a CD, hop on my motorcycle and speed over to the Metreon where me and the current host would intro the mix. There was another layer of absurdity, however; I'm not sure whose idea it was, but somehow somebody secured a dance troupe of youngsters, who performed various breakdancey type routines for the half hour of the show, right there in the atrium of the mall for everyone's entertainment.
It was so weird but kind of awesome, and for some of the shows in , hundreds of onlookers would have gathered by the end of the mix. Like, seriously, huge crowds. So, my job for these mixes was even harder: So, this mix is basically a cobbled together mishmash of previous episodes, although it is noteable for the first Sixx Mixx appearance of the Chemical Brothers' "Galvanize," a track I would later mix with some Star Wars I kick myself to this day that I didn't come up with that mashup until after the Sixx Mixx ended, a year too late.
It's not a bad show just kind of dull, although we do end with the wonderful whistle-mashup from DJ Riko, which became a big favorite amongs listeners and staff. Franz Ferdinand — 'Take Me Out" 7. Chic — "Good Times" 8. Beastie Boys — "Triple Trouble" 9. ODB — "Bite" Kleptones mashup Scissor Sisters — "Take your Mama" Almost entirely a rearrangment of previous Sixx Mixx excerpts, let's just call this a Thanksgiving rerun.
It does mark the first appearance of my Chic vs. Franz Ferdinand combo that would become a signature in my DJ sets, as well as a nice few seconds where Jane's Addiction layers over The Music remember them? Green Day — "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" 3. Chemical Brothers — "Block Rockin' Beats" 4. Blackstreet — "Blacksmiths" StvD mashup 6.
Stereoasis — "Superconnected" Party Ben mashup 7. Gary Glitter — "Rock 'n' Roll Part 2" 9. The Timelords — "Doctorin the Tardis" Norman Greenbaum — "Spirit in the Sky" Soft Cell — "Tainted Love" A bit too ambitious, this Mixx, which sticks, admirably, almost entirely to rock 'n' roll, but suffers a bit from a few awkward segues and a kind of too-shrill audio quality. Ol' Dirty Bastard had passed away that week and in tribute I did the opposite of what I'd been doing with Lyrics Born til that point: I've made my share of that style of mashup, for sure, and they can be tons of fun, but they're something a bit lazy about them, production-wise and conceptually.
I can't say enough about "Come Closer. Later in the show we have an amusing triple-time section that foreshadows what would be one of my most successful tracks, "Dr. Who On Holiday," but the sooner we forget my Cure vs. Faint disaster, the better. Anyway, points for difficulty here, but deductions for stumbles.
Summer of Lust: After Club SIXXX Erotic Series by Lord Koga (eBook) - Lulu
While this Mixx starts off somewhat ploddingly with far too much of the seemed-exciting-at-the-time Jacknife Lee mix of "Vertigo," once that's out of the way, it becomes a surprisingly nimble and energetic episode, with some clever linking up of excellent and funny tracks by some real awesome producers, as well as a fun rock 'n' roll theme. Great to hear Bowie in there as well. I loved the Sixx Mixx when it did this job, i.
If it wasn't for a few bum sections from myself and the endless Vertigo mix at the beginning, this might rival 49 as a Great Episode, but still, not bad. When will I learn: This is just bad, an attempt to force together a bunch of bands playing LIVE 's winter concert, and yes sure I deserve points for being a Team Player and all that but oof, let's never speak of it again.
Nectarios - "Phoenix" Party Ben mix Bush Party Ben version While the mixing is quick, dirty, and often nonexistent, and some of the tracks haven't exactly stood the test of time "Mosh" doesn't really get a lot of airplay these days , there was something that felt very powerful about this episode at the time, such an agonizing moment in American history.
Quite a few people told me they stopped what they were doing to listen, and that there was something about the progression from each track to the next that sort of told a story. I'm not sure about that last part--as usual with the Sixx Mixx I was just trying to get all the stuff to fit together--but maybe unintentionally there turned out to be some sort of progression?
Either way, "themed" Sixx Mixxez, looking back, are often not my favorites because the musical choices were being made for extra-musical reasons. But this one felt necessary, like a cry of anguished protest, and seemed to connect with listeners, expressing something in the collective zeitgeist. It's maybe not the most musically ground-breaking, but to my mind, it's one of the show's proudest moments.
It also does kind of amaze me that it played on a major commercial radio station at 6: Way Out West vs. It's funny that my impression, looking back, at this period of the Sixx Mixx is that it was reaching a higher level of creative fruitfulness, not only in its presentation of preexisting tracks but in the tendency of my own productions for the show to become popular on their own. However at the time, of course, I was deeply self-critical, enough so that I thought this episode was an example of the show being "in a rut.
But there are a couple nice moments. It's the debut of the fully-fleshed-out version of the Eminem vs. Stereo MCs track that I always kind of liked. The nearly unnoticeable mix into Audioslave is pretty cool, and the fact that the entire first 10 minutes of the show is all in the same key is kind of impressive.
Overall not really a cohesive show but hey, let's give it a break. Bush Party Ben version 8. Not a perfectly executed show by any means and a few too many repeats, but there's a tonal consistency to the episode that I find intriguing, from the driving beat of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" to Zebra's pounding "Anarchy" rework. I also really like the remix-remix I did of "Mass Destruction;" the Tom Middleton version of the song had just come out and I really liked it, so I did another version of my George W.
Bush thing over the top, this time focusing on his supremely irritating repetition of the "hard work" trope which just about made my head explode back in The Fatboy beat over Slow Hands doesn't really work, and, in the interest of complete historical accuracy, there was no "Mr. Brightside" acapella available at the time, so that vocal is in fact me singing.
While there was some precedent in singing in your mashup as Zebra had done some of the vocal work in his "Take Me Out Saturday Night" track, my singing is actually quite terrible and embarrasses me now but I really wanted to make that mashup. Anyway, the odd episode that works better considered as a whole than examined minute-by-minute. Well, here it is: By now I've told the story a thousand times: I had the idea for the mashup about an hour before showtime on Friday afternoon, and was desperate to use Aerosmith's "Dream On" at the end, but it was nowhere to be found.
This was , remember, and we didn't have access to everything in the world all the time. There wasn't even YouTube yet. The song was inexplicably not even on iTunes then, and none of our sister stations had it in their libraries, and time was running out, when suddenly I remembered Eminem had sampled "Dream On" in "Sing For the Moment ," which we did have in the studio, so kaboom, Eminem saves the day. Of course at this point I hadn't come up with the name for it, so it's indicated in my original tracklisting just by the original songs.
As the show had been going on for over a year at this point, I would still get some high-fives as I exited the studio at 6: However, I will honestly never forget the atmosphere after this episode ended. This may sound like hyperbole, but I remember a sort of hush over the office, and a few of my coworkers sort of emerged from their rooms with a dumbfounded expression, saying, "What I'm pretty sure Adrian from Bootie told me he started working on the next club flyer, marrying Billie Joe and Noel Gallagher's faces, that evening.
The reaction was immediate and shocking and unlike anything I had experienced with the show until that point. Of course, the places "Boulevard" ended up were destined to continue to shock me for about another two years. The rest of the episode is actually pretty good as well, things kick off with what was the debut of a new Eminem song that turned out to be a bit of a dud but I still kind of enjoy its bonkers lyrics num num num, touch my body and we get a hint of my future Stereo MCs mashup of the track.
The full Blursabian track makes its debut and there's the first play of a "7 Nation Army" mix that isn't Slide's, an awesome blend of the White Stripes and Alter Ego's "Rocker. And of course there is no better introduction to the "Boulevard" debut than the enormous climactic moment of the awesomely silly William Shatner cover of "Common People.
A pretty standard Mixx here, bracketed by two brilliant politically-themed collages that hint at the Election Special to come. It seemed like everybody was jumping on the "make something out of George W Bush's gut-wrenchingly moronic and horrifically fascistic speeches" in those days, with the election approaching. While my Bushy mix of Faithless' "Mass Destruction" layered sections of his speech over the track's propulsive beat, Shadow goes for a staccato barrage of single words and phrases, "nuke-you-lar" most prominently.
And then we come to a producer who was light years ahead of his time, a guy called RX, who did the painstaking work of arranging W's words into an actual song, with the product both hilarious and haunting. It's a trope that still goes viral today--see the recent Jimmy Fallon-presented clips of Obama and Brian Williams chopped up to sing various popular numbers--but this was one of the first times I'd heard it done so effectively, and I'm guessing Mr.
RX didn't have the searchable trove of video clips that NBC producers have. RX if you're out there, let me know what you're up to! Another special edition that was probably more entertaining in context, that context being now forgotten--I'm assuming some sort of Beastie Boys live show in the Bay Area or something? In any event, it turns out my limit of Beastie Boys was remarkably low, since there are only three Beastie tracks here.
But they're all good ones: My reedit of Bigbadbaz's version of "Stacy's Mom" is fun. Overall I would say despire a lot of same-old same-old content, it's a strong episode. Freeland - We Want Your Soul 2. Nirvana - Smells Like Freeland 3. Freeform Five - Strangest Things 4. White Stripes - 7 Nation Freeland 5. The second guest-produced Sixx Mixx came from a producer with whom I always felt a lot in common, except of course he's awesome and successful and has way better hair see picture above from Coachella I had always been a big breaks fan and loved Mr.
Freeland's work and his Marine Parade label , but then he started making tracks that seemed tailor made for the Sixx Mixx. His rework of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is a true masterpiece and may, after this little Sixx Mixx re-examination project is done, turn out to be the most played track on the show. His original track "We Want Your Soul" went into regular rotation on LIVE in and became a huge hit for us, expressing the political disenchantment that was perhaps more evident in San Francisco than anywhere else in the country.
So when I learned he'd be coming to town for a DJ gig it was a no brainer to ask him to do a guest mix. Perhaps unsurprisingly, however, there was a bit of chaos. His flight was delayed and I wasn't even sure he was going to make it to the station in time, so I grabbed an old Mixx and was ready to roll that instead, when at about 5: Of course he wasn't even finished with the set, so we stuck him in our conference room and I waited, biting my nails. I'm not exaggerating to say that he finished the Mixx and burned the CD with seconds to spare, and we ran into the studio and hit "play.
If there's anybody out there who might have recorded it, let me know. E40 And Casual 6. I'm guessing the Cure was playing somewhere that night, so I slapped some Cure stuff on the beginning and end of old show excerpts. The title references that back in like I was a little intern for LIVE and the Cure were playing our big summer concert, and I was assigned as their designated van driver for the weekend. They were total lunatics and always late for everything, and they almost missed the entire show because they made me take them to Fisherman's Wharf so they could buy some funny jester hats they had seen somebody wearing the day before.
Robert Smith was very nice about it all though. A bit unfocused but some interesting moments here. Super awesome remix of Air here as well. All in all not bad. Unknown — Unknown From Radio Soundhog 4 5. You know, you win some, you lose some, and nowhere is that more apparent than in the world of Songs or Artists I Championed On the Sixx Mixx.
Streets, Lyrics Born, The Rapture? Well, to paraphrase "Mean Girls": I did like FakeID's aka Lionel Vinyl funky remix, but boy, with that and Somebody Told Me taking up the first 10 minutes of the show, it's all a bit much. Although whatever the big scronky breakbeat track is which I still don't know--anyone? Also, in embarrassing Sixx Mixx Secrets, that's me singing the Incubus vocal over Devo, since there was no acapella available. Things get a little wacky wackier after that, with the loud and silly Fondue Meltdown "Satisfaction" mix, another iteration of my Faithless thing, and the pretty unlistenable cover of "Take Me Out" by the Scissor Sisters.
A note about the title: Rasmus - In the Shadows 2. Modest Mouse - Float On 3. Nina Sky - Move Ya Body 5. Tiga - Hot in Herre Acapella 6. Blur - Song 2 7. EMF — Unbelievable 9. Beyonce - Work It Out Acapella Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit Michael Jackson - Billie Jean Acapella Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out Beastie Boys - Triple Trouble Outkast - Roses Acapella Selecter - On My Radio Avril Lavigne - Skater Boi Acapella TLC - Unpretty Acapella Wham - I'm Your Man Emotions - Best of Your Love While it took me a few episodes to hone in on the right style and sound, after ish episodes I really felt like the Sixx Mixx was a very specific sort of thing.
It had to be somewhat friendly to an Alternative Radio crowd Foo Fighters! White Stripes but also buck that genre in an amusing way, and also nod to the uniqueness of LIVE and the Bay Area, and do it all in a half-hour set that a 6pm audience would find palatable. So I was very hesitant to consider offering the entire show to a guest producer. All the better then that the first guest mix was by the brilliant McSleazy. The cheeky Scot had already produced a slew of tracks that were exactly in the Sixx Mixx wheelhouse, especially the seminal mashup masterpiece "Smells Like Billie Jean.
I can't remember exactly why--maybe I'd already started next week's episode or something?
