Bangin Electro House Wedding Afterparty for Mr DJ Caddyshack

This week we celebrate Mr. DJ Caddyshack’s fantastic wedding! Who else would make a couple guest DJ appearances at his own wedding, belting out the electro house to get the whole family bouncin on the dancefloor?! The tunes were so good, we just had to keep it going with a couple slammin’ electro sets on this week’s show.

I was too busy chatting with our studio guest, Greg, to write down what Caddyshack played. Pester him and maybe he’ll dig up the tracklist from his history, or listen to the show because I’m pretty sure I run down the tracklist at the end.

Rave Breaks Are Making a Comeback

I couldn’t have been happier a couple weeks ago when I was checking out the TrackItDown breakbeat top 100, and lone behold, half of the top 20 breakbeat tracks were classified as rave breaks. I got into electronic music in the early 90s when groups like Acen were churning out warehouse bangers like Window in the Sky and Trip II the Moon. The Illegal Rave compilations were another favourite of the time and groups like Hackney Hardcore and Urban Hype were belting out classic rave anthems like Trip to Trumpton, all well before the classic trance anthems of the late 90s.

So when I saw new artists like E-Lab Rat and Northbase resurrecting the classic rave breaks that I grew up with, I couldn’t wait to put together a set. And here it is. Oldschool rave breaks interwoven with new hardcore breaks and phat dubstep basslines. This mix is intense. Is you have a pacemaker, you should probably change the batteries before going any further.

(Did I mention that everything Blazer touches turns to gold?)

Electro House Anthem Mix

It’s not that often that I pull out the Electro House, but I like some of the tracks. I’ve always liked big builds. Personally, I think Electro House is more closely related to trance than it is to house, but whoever gets to name these genres doesn’t seem to consult with me before they carve out the stone, so electro house it is.

Trancendance Does Electro House

So we just got back from the Sander van Doorn show at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Last week it was the Benny Benassi show, but it was really Sander’s show. Electro House isn’t something we play a lot of, but Sander’s set was so good, we figured we dig up some of the tracks he played and see what happens. One of the funniest things I noticed, is that half of these Electro HOUSE tracks are remixed TRANCE tracks! Trance. FTW. :)
