Mix #96 : “No Hocus Pocus” (by Zap’al’odd)

November 8, 2012 No Comments  Author:  

This mix was my contribution for the WAVES DJ CONTEST 2012. I was confident to finish on 28th position of 200 participants. AmStrad Billionaire won this contest and the gig at Pratersauna Vienna with Rustie during the WAVES festival 2012.

 

 

Starting with “Justice – Newlands” live version, the first part consist of 5 Electro and House tracks. The following 6 songs build the main part, including 2 massive Dubstep tunes and a Hiphop track by DJ Krush. From #12 to #16 I play 2 Dub FX and 3 Dirty Dubsters tracks.

Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team – Activate” is my favorite production on Modeselektion Vol. 2, released on Modeselektor’s label Monkeytown. The main vocal sounds straight and clear, while the background vocal is strange and modulated. The style of the drumset is a new Minimal Electro groove.

The 2 tracks by Dub FX: “Flow” (feat. Mr. Woodnote) and “Love Someone” have great vocals and a Drum and Bass beat + a beautyful Saxophon melody by Mr. Woodnote.

Dirty Dubsters are represented by 4 tracks: “Swing it Brother”, “In the Summertime”, “Cease Fire Selecta” and “One Big Road”. Except “Swing it Brother”, which is a Swing House tune, they all have a D’n’B rhytm and Ragga vocals.

No Hocus Pocus! Keep it real and simple!

"Music is my passion and I go with the flow. Whether it is calm or loud, slow or fast, soft or hard, or sweet medium. Music simply makes me feel good, motivates me and makes me think of various topics and ways of life. When I have a day without music, something is missing." (Zap’al’odd aka Zap Alnino)
