TOTD: Hazard (Original Mix) - Leon B

Hard dance is a genre that is very popular in small places.  What I mean is, it's not like house where quite a few people can say: "I know this song" or "I know that artist".  Hard dance tends to feed itself to a specific audience.  Most of these members know how to do a type of dance that goes well with the music.  Two examples of the dancing are the Melbourne Shuffle and Jumpstyle.  Both of these dances work well with the hard dance genre, or if you want to call it: Hardstyle.

This track, Hazard has topped beatport for a while, and it's a sweet track.  I'm going to share it with you guys.

For the DJs:  most of you won't have to worry about mixing music like this because like I said, fans of it are few far and in between.  But when you have to, it might be hard.  The beat along with the bass in this music can be tricky, and can actually make it feel like a 5 beat per measure track every once in a while.  This is a kind of song that you mix in at the beginning and out at the end.  Don't try and mix this with most regular house, if anything use it with prog house because they tend to have the same buildup pattern.

TOTD: JAGUAR (Original Mix) - Marlo

Some of you who follow me and have listened to my podcast probably know my favorite part of good electronic music.  It starts with a "s" and ends with a "h".  Can you guess what it is?

This Trance track, JAGUAR has a sweet melodic synth line and does a good job of build ups.  It is definitely worth checking out!

To the DJs  Trance mixes well with house, but don't go too overboard.  Trance tracks tend to be long so be sure to feel your crowd and find a good point to mix something else in if need be.  What's a good rule?  DON'T SCREW WITH THE BUILD UP OR DROP!

That is all.

Podcast Tonight! Taking Requests!

I'm going to take some request songs here, please take a look at and if you find any songs that you like, tell me and I'll purchase them to mix tonight!

Here are some guidelines:

  • Progressive house is the best choice, because I love it.  Make sure it's synthy.
  • If it is UK Hardcore or Happy Hardcore, I'm cool with that too.
  • Drum and Bass is cool, but I'm very picky.
  • No Dubstep please, I've got too much of it.

Post your requests in the comment section BELOW

TOTD: Killer 2K11 (Afrojack Remix) - FM Audio

TOTD: Mystic Sunset (Original Mix) - DJ Marky, S.P.Y.

Coming straight from the Innerground label comes a body rocking and bass-tastic Drum and Bass Piece.
Mystic Sunset.  This track was released along with another track titled Yellow Shoes, which I highly recommend as well.  These pieces integrate some nice female vocals without overdoing it (TONS of electronic songs overdo vocals).

Now for you Mixers out there this track is a drum and bass track.  Drum and bass drum beats come in varying rhythms so be sure when you mix this track, you have a VERY similar drum beat to this one.  Know your tracks!  This track rolls around 116 BPM and is in the key of D minor.  Keys don't matter as much as beat matching for you DJs that aren't making 7 figures a year.

TOTD: Epic (Original Mix) - Quintino and Sandro Silva

The Musical Freedom yet again releases another great Progressive House track.  The Musical Freedom is a label set up by Tiesto himself!  So you can't doubt this.  This track is wild and crazy and you have GOT to check it out.  But only if you're wild and crazy.
Fine Print for you DJs.  Most of my TOTDs mix well, so I'd suggest throwing this in a good house set!

TOTD: Around The World (Original Mix) - Arty

Another Progressive house piece here today!  In case you guys didn't know Progressive house is very well known for it's HUGE build ups and not letting those build ups down.  I personally love Prog House much more than any other kind.  (other types of house are almost boring to me)  But this is always exciting and Around The World doesn't let you down.  Not once.

Mixes well.  By the way a lot of these TOTDs I download that same day and will mix it on my podcast. So look forward to that!

Digital Dance Club Podcast: The first 5 episodes!

So I actually never got around to posting these podcasts to a blog or even promoting them.  These podcasts are performed and recorded live on a local radio station in North West Arkansas.  KXUA 88.3  and can be listened to live every Wednesday night from 10pm to 12am CST.

The podcast is not formatted at all.  I walk in, break out my gear and spin whatever is on my mind.

Hope you guys enjoy these episodes of Digital Dance Club and look forward to more to come!

TOTD: Raise - Hedonist Vs. Nhato

This is another great track of the day, brought to you only by Bass Cadet, me!.  This track, Raise, can be classified as Hard Dance or Tech Trance.  I feel it being a little bit of both.  It runs at about 134 BPM so it mixes well with other house and trance tracks.  Good addition to the collection if you ask me!

Not only that, but the picture for the track is minimalistic, and cool at the same time.

TOTD: Unprepared (Marcel Woods Remix) - Marco V

The track of the day today is Unprepared which is a boss progressive house track.  This track features a musical word known as counterpoint.  Counterpoint is two melodies at once.  This track features one melody (The vocals) then the synth.  Then soon after that, both at the same time.  It just makes you want to get crazy down on the floor

This track mixes well as it has a good rhythmical intro and outro.
