Not a new mix, originally posted in 2003 on deephousepage but one I came across only recently myself. Disco mixed together as smooth as butter, if you’re familiar with the Jump Cutz Volume 1 release on the deep house label, Luxury Service, you’ll hear where they got most of their track Why U Wanna Play On Me from; damn I need a copy of the source now too!

Tracklisting from deephousepage

1. Betcha Wouldn’t Hurt Me – Quincy Jones (with horn hits from France Joli’s “Gonna Get Over You”)
2. Do It Any Way You Wanna – People’s Choice
3. There Are Many Stops Along The Way – Joe Sample
4. Clouds – Chaka Khan
5. Number One – Patrice Rushen
6. Love Is the Message – MFSB (with the Peach Boys “Don’t Make Me Wait”. Yeah, I know this blend has been done a zillion times, but I hear Hippie was the first.)
7. Whistle Bump – Deodato
8. You Can’t Hide From Yourself – Teddy Pendergrass
9. Doctor Love – First Choice
10. Inside America – Juggy Murray Jones
11. Supernature – Cerrone
12. Standing In the Rain – Don Ray
13. Time Warp – Eddie Grant (with Sweet Dreams – Eurythmics)
14. I Feel Love – Donna Summer

DJ MIX: Zyron – Mellow Dream State
9th April, 2008 | 111 views

This was a winning mix in the Discogs Mix Tournament and deservedly so. Although I didn’t like all the tracks on this mix and not convinced the mix title accurately reflects what the mix is about, it’s out-and-out eclecticism and the transitions between the disparate styles are just amazing, e.g. Kraftwerk into U2 plus Alan Vega into the B-52’s Queen Of Las Vegas which prompted me to buy the album it’s from.
