A New Mix for July – Both Skylights Open

both skylights open cover

As always, I’m sorry it’s been ages.

Anyway yesterday I went up to the loft, opened the skylights, and this popped out. It’s perhaps got a bit more of a old fashioned house feeling in places than normal. But I think in general the sound works OK. And the Apparat remix at the end is stunning.

Buy tracks from Beatport.com – I do.

And you should be able to get it as an iTunes podcast here – although it can take a day or so to update.

Let me know what you think. Unless you really hate it. In which case I’d rather live in blissful ignorance I think.

Easter 09 – Another One of Those Mixes


Sorry it’s been a while.

This was done at the weekend when it was nice and sunny outside. Instead of trying to milk a goat, catch a leprechaun, make friends with my neighbours, learn the flute or anything else so exciting. Instead I popped open the skylights and the first fresh air of the year entered the loft…

I’m not sure exactly where this mix fits in the world. I’d like to think I could pull off a morning slot on a sunny terrace somewhere, but I think they’re becoming increasingly the kind of mixes that only elderly folk will like ;-)

  2. Mystery of Nazereth – Marco Bernardi
  3. Twighlight (Layo and Bushwacka mix) – Unkle
  4. Light Through The Veins (Ewan Pearsons Downtown Lights Mix) – Jon Hopkins
  5. Poisson Pilote – Rone
  6. Amish Kid (Sasse Remix) – Phonogenic
  7. Lovelee Dae (Tanner Ross & KiloWatts Remix) – Blaze
  8. Inner 8 (Dexters DXR Mix) – Alton Miller
  9. Roman – Trickski

  11. Guinea Pig (DJ Kozes Vocal Variation Remix) – Ben Watt
  12. Song for Marie and Elise (Aeroplane Remix) – Lullabies in the Dark
  13. Who Are You? (Ft Heidi Happy) – Zwicker
  14. Interlude in the Bed – Rone
  15. Swarm (Telefon Tel Aviv Remix) – Art of Trance

You can download the mix from here.

And you should be able to get it through the iTunes Podcast here (once the iTunes machine gets round to updating things).

If anyone fancies booking me to play at the awesomest party in the world ever drop me a line I’m sure it can be arranged.

Credit Crunch Minimix


To try and lift everyone’s spirits I’ve put together a little (30min) mix of uplifting feel-good tracks to see if I can raise the mood of the internet. It’s a mix of styles from soul / mashups / hiphop / drum and bass / other so there’s something to suit some people in there.

Tracklist and download link at iainmixedit.tumblr.com or via the iTunes podcast.

A New Summer Mix – This One’s A Bit of A Banger

Iain Mixed It

I’m going to stop putting my music mixes directly on Crackunit. For a few reasons. Paranoia being one. DJ mixes have always been a grey area in terms of licensing, etc. So I’m just going to tidy them over to somewhere else, just to be on the safe side. I’d hate my blog to get compromised in some way because of sharing my musical stuff. I have good reason to be paranoid about this stuff – maybe I’ll share the story another time.

I’ll still ‘point to’ mixes from here. But they’re now on a totally separate site.

If you want to listen to or download my latest mix (or just look at the tracklist) you can head over to: http://iainmixedit.tumblr.com/

It’s perhaps a bit more ‘upfront’ than some of the stuff I normally play. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing…

Musical Madness – Kidda – Under The Sun Remix

Sorry, I know it’s been a few musicy posts in a row. But I had to share this. It’s perhaps the most bonkers track I’ve heard recently. It’s hard to describe its genre, it’s basically like speeded up funk / soul, meets happy hardcore, meets electro-house, whatever it’s just totally out there. I’m sure if I had a heart condition it’d do me no good at all. Don’t miss the slurring pianos at the end, it’s all very messy.

If you’ve not had enough, they’ve got the MP3 at Trackitdown.net

You might also recognise the track because an edit of the original was used in this Bacardi ad.

I’ve got a couple of older Kidda records on Catskills and I’m a big fan.

Lords of the Dance

It’s been a very very long time since I posted a Silly Moment in Techno.

This made me laugh so hard that people around the office were concerned for my welfare.

Thank you Andy, you made my day.
