Made in Belgium: Highlight

There are many Belgian artists in the top 30 list above, but I want to highlight one in particular. Go check out this new EP from Leon Mills if you like alternative dance and melodic music for the after hours. He is an old classmate of mine and his new music sounds really good!

Blog Overview: Mixtapes

Due to Covid-19 there are still no live performances. So I record a lot of mixtapes at home. Here are three DJ sessions from the last month. You can find a full mixtape overview of January and tracklists from each mixtape on this page:

Hip Hop Mixtape 6: Hip hop, rap and R&B tracks from Eminem, Xzibit, Jay-Z, 2Pac, Terror Squad and many more. Mostly beats (by Dr. Dre) from the 2000s and the new single from 50 Cent.

Groove Is On, Mixtape 2: A DJ session full of indie-dance, house, disco vibes and electronic beats. Tracks from Portugal. The Man, Groove Armada, Deee-Lite, Daft Punk, and many more.

Moments, Mixtape 2: Progressive trance, house and breaks from 2002 till 2008. Tracks from Envio, Origene, Suncreem, Ridgewalkers, Mike Foyle, Perry O’Neil and many more.

DJ Mixes: picks from Mixcloud, Soundcloud

While preparing the future baby room I enjoyed these mixtapes by other DJs.

De La Soul on WhoSampled: Hip hop music uses a lot of samples. This mixtape by Chris Read is a tribute to the debut album of De La Soul. It includes album tracks, the original songs which they sampled, alternative versions and more. A trip down hip hop history.

TPD 5 by Cemode: Progressive trance classics in the mix by Cemode, mixed with vinyl.


Woop woop, a full live performance of Daft Punk in 2007 was recently added on YouTube.
