I've mixed another electro podcast. I've been looping crazy samples for the past few weeks and trying to get away with blending them into 'French house' songs...even when the artists aren't French. It was awkward at first, but now they're friends.
My goal is to make it 'Frenchier', thereby turning it into 'Frenchier house'.
Another thing about this mix is that I've finally found a pretty cool beat from an A-Trak remix that I used for the Call Me Up acapella by Chromeo. It's pretty simple, but I think it worked. Also, I did a mash up of a hellogoodbye acapella over a Digitalism beat sometime last year and I decided to include it here because I'm playing around with this voice filter that works well.
I was recently introduced to the music of Louis La Roche. He's 17, from the UK, and just released an EP called The Peach that you can download for free. He's French house squared. I mixed his title track using a loop of Yelle, which I have been playing in my head for days now.
Also, I had an urge to make a Kris Kross remix.
All in all, I'm hoping it worked and you can enjoy it.

I've been waiting to put together a 'best of' Daft Punk mix for a while and here it is (and I'm actually happy with it!). Seeing them live last summer at Lollapalooza provided inspiration for the idea of using Daft Punk to chop, loop, and blend all of their greatest hits into one mega-mix (minus the MJ). Last month I began throwing together some things and here we are. I don't feel as though I held back, but I tried to keep the original tracks intact so it sounds like a glorified 'best of'.
I could have kept going and mixed much longer, but I figured I'd break this up into several hour long podcasts. Here's the first hour of The Daft Punk Mix - by me!

8. Mothership Reconnection (Daft Punk Remix)/Phoenix
9. Phoenix/Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger/Da Funk
10. Da Funk/Face To Face
11. Face To Face/Burnin'/Superheroes
12. Teachers/Chord Memory (Daft Punk Remix)
