What better time than right after Ultra in Miami for me to knock the dust off my equipment and put together a new set? To date, everything I have uploaded has been dated (all mix sets from back when I used to consider myself a DJ above all else). As proud as I am with some of those older sets, I needed to bring something fresh to the table for once...if only to prove to myself that I can still throw a set together worth listening to!
This set is recorded under the name Patrick Edwards (I tossed out the name Dee Jay Flux a couple years back, and have been using the Patrick Edwards moniker for original productions and remixes for a few years now...only fitting that I adopt it as my DJ name now as well).
I'm old school through and through, and a breakbeat fan first and foremost, and you'll see hints of both in this set. That said, it's a 2 hour set of pure progressive trance, house, breaks, and everything in between.
Consider this my re-introduction into the world of making mixes...jump on board and take a trip through what I feel are some of the best tracks and remixes this new generation has to offer!
Please feel free to leave any and all comments below (even the negative are constructive...so don't be scared to hurt my feelings...this crusty old-school party kid has thick skin and a great ear for constructive criticism;)
3 of 4 short mixes, vinyl and live mixdown.First half is decent, i seem to recall being pretty wasted with some buddies about 15 minutes into this so apologies for the dodgy beat mixing...i don't think i could see straight :)
An eclectic mix of Progressive music...everything from Progressive Breaks, Progressive Trance, Progressive House, Nu Skool Breaks...it's all inside. This is a mix I made back in late 2005, but have NEVER allowed out of the vault. I kept it stored on a hard drive for all these years for a few reasons...not the least of which because some of the music in this mix dates back to '99, and in 2005, if you weren't playing all white labels or brand new releases (the kind of stuff that the ink wasn't even dry on the label yet), you weren't getting anybody to listen to your demo. Since ALL the music on this mix is now dated, it's time to let it out of it's cage. By far, this is one of my favorite mixes I have ever made, and for a very good reason. This particular mix holds a special place in my heart, because it contains some of my favorite remixes and tunes ever to occupy space in my record bag (although in the spirit of being truthful, there are two tracks on this mix that came from cd...this is one of the only mixes I ever put together where I used a set of CDJs along with my trusty old 1200's). Every mix should tell a story, should grab you by the hand and take you on a journey...this one is designed to do just that, and I hope you decide to jump on and enjoy the ride!
I have always held a special place in my heart for trance/progressive breakbeats. This mix (recorded in early 2001, and never released until just now) is the first volume in a series of trance/progressive breakbeat mixes designed more for the drive home than for the dancefloor. A genre that never truly found a firm foothold in the main rooms or big clubs back in the day, yet it's a genre that nearly all fans of electronic music turn to when they are looking for intelligent, soothing music with lots of changes, sweeping synths, and some of the best remixes ever produced (from the white label remakes of pop tunes to the deeper remixes of some of the trance anthems). This mix was designed for the ride home, the afterparty, the quiet evening at home...but that being said, you WILL find yourself nodding along to the music, and you will feel your heart rate go up as you hear some of your favorite tracks that you never knew had a breaks remix.
Lend me your ears for this one, you won't regret it!
An old demo that I rediscovered recently, decided I still liked, and decided to share with the world! Starts off with progressive breaks, moves it's way into some serious progressive trance. Well worth an hour and thirteen minutes of your time (and guaranteed to make you smile too)! Enjoy!
The very first demo I ever made. This was pulled straight off of an old mix tape (that's right, I said TAPE!). This mix dates back to the summer of 1999...I recently dug it out of a box, blew the dust off of it, and moved it forward 13 years into the digital age. The entire set was recorded on a set of Gemini belt drive turntables (hence the name "Belt Driven"), and yes, there is a side B to this tape (that I will be uploading soon).
Give me 56 minutes of your time, I promise I'll have you nodding your head, bouncing in your chair, singing along in traffic, or shaking your booty wherever you are!
Ok, Peoples. I dug up some old Cosmic Tracks and wanted to make a mix with them. A little of the old and Bit of the new. Man, I enjoyed mixing these beats together. If you like bass and plenty of beats, then you should like what i have for you. I hope you enjoy and i am posting track list with upload.
This is a progressive breaks mix done by my lady. Make sure you give her tons of comments, and feedback! She's played a couple of shows around the Clarksville area, been featured on The Nocturnal Beat and now I'm doing the same here for her. Enjoy!
This was a progressive add-on to Rumpeltaenzchen Promo Mix. It was also mixed digitally back in 2006. It was compiled for Rumpeltaenzchen Psytrance Festival that was supposed to happen near Livno, Bosnia and Herzegovina, with some very big names from the international psytrance scene. Sadly, it was canceled due to medieval locals attitude and cowboy officials. Since this mix is made blindly, without headphones cueing you will have to excuse me for a few minor drop-outs. But it is a fine story itself. Happy daydreaming :)
