Mix #136: Ready for this…

A cat ready to jump

Ready for this? As previously announced, there is now a Sweet Headache radio show on Cologne-based radio station 674.fm .This mix is from the first show and it’s a true beast: Cross-genre mixing, rough and glitchy sounds and some serious broken and straight beats.

Here’s the mix:

You can also find the full radio show with moderation on Mixcloud.

Some of my personal highlights in this mix:

It starts with “Ready for This” by Smash Hifi, a collaboration between Leeroy Thornhill (founding member of The Prodigy) and breakbeat producer Marten Hørger. The sample at the beginning and the overall style made it feel like the right choice. It’s rough and melodic at the same time and definitely a banger.

One of my all-time favorites is Adam Freeland’s “We Want Your Soul”. It’s one of the few tracks in electronic dance music that actually has a political message and it gets it across in a smart and memorable way. We want more of this!

As in the previous Sweet Headache mixes, I really wanted to make this one a multi-genre mix. For this purpose, tracks like “Faster Than Light” by Far Too Loud comes in handy as it goes from 128BPM up to 174BPM. This is a little trick that not too many DJs use and I believe it can make a set much more interesting.
