This week we have another wee dip into the I Think I Like It series! With a set list that should never ever go together, but kinda, totally does, I Think I Like It Vol.3 is a random mix of pop, rock, power ballads, hip hop, house, electronic and the Spice Girls!

A relatively short set from 2012, I Think I Like It Vol.3 features Linkin Park – By_Myslf, Lady Gaga – Starstruck, Spice Girls – Move Over, Starship – Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now, a Jay Robinson remix of Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg – The Next Episode, Lady Gaga – Heavy Metal Lover, Tiesto and Axwell – Diamond Found and MOPP – Dream About You.

Throwback Thursday: Part 6

And on to week six of this lil Throwback Thursday DJ set series!
We’re into the archives of the I Think I Like It series from 2012 and this week we have my personal favourite of all my DJ sets, I Think I Like It Vol.2!

I Think I Like It Volume 2 is a relatively short DJ set running at just under 22 minutes featuring 10 tracks. If you’re taste in music lies in the realms of big beat, drum and bass and rave inspired electronica then I’d love you to give it a listen and let me know what you think!

It begins with a mashup that I made of Touch & Go’s 1998 big beat, ridiculously addictive trumpet solo heavy track Would You and the excellent Benny Page remix of Jessie J’s Price Tag from 2011. These two tracks probably shouldn’t work together, but they really do!

The mix continues with the frantic tech sound with Danny Byrd and Netsky’s early rave inspired Tonight before making a smooth transition into the chilled and almost majestic Spectral Soul remix of Adele’s Rolling In The Deep. The combination of house piano chords and deep sub-bass really sounds quite sublime.

Just as you’re getting comfortable with some deep house, a tribal and voodoo like percussion riff begins, introducing Takura Tendayi’s sinister vocals on the manic No Problem from Chase & Status before subtly moving into the Dominator Synth heavy sound of Danny Byrd & Tomahawk’s Hot Fuzz, paving the way for Byrd’s phenomenal reinterpretation of Liquid’s piano / breakbeat classic Sweet Harmony.

Following the rave heavy sounds of Chase & Status, Danny Byrd, Tomahawk and Liquid comes the liquid funk sound of Paperchase and Beautiful from Brookes Brothers that intertwine seamlessly into each other, before concluding the set with the stunning First Note Is Silent– a high energy drum & bass meets techno meets trance collaboration from the ever amazing High Contrast, Tiesto and Underworld.

Turn it up! Hit play! Rave on!

Throwback Thursday: Part 5

And on to Week 5 of my Throwback Thursday and it’s a good one!
My good, dear friend, Miss Emma Strummer, always cites this set as her personal favourite, and I must agree that I think I like it too!

Recorded as a live set way back wherever, whenever, I Think I Like It Vol. 1 is a sleek and sleazy mish-mash of electro, disco, house, bassline, pop, trumpets, a lil’ sexy All Saints cover version, a solo Girl Aloud, Cher FUCKIN Lloyd and oooooh baby… i feel like… the music sound better with yooooooou… this set is pretty damn special!

A legendary 3am house party set that reeks of Liquid Gold, I Think I Like It Vol.1 features I Blame Coco – The Constant, Simian Mobile Disco – Audacity of Huge, The 2 Bears – Bear Hug, Major Lazer – Pon De Floor, All Saints – Lady Marmalade, Rob D’Riche – Swing Your Thing, Ray Foxx – The Trumpeter, Cher Lloyd – Swagger Jagger, Vato Gonzales – Badman Riddim, Nicola Roberts – Beat of My Drum, Stardust – Music Sounds Better With You & Fake Blood – I Think I Like It!

Dedicated to Emma Strummer, here it is in all it’s glory!
