MIXMAG PRESENTS: THE BLACK MADONNA

"There is no rush. Very few people are Chance The Rapper." So begins the debut mix for Mixmag from The Black Madonna, Chicago Smart Bar resident and Mixmag's DJ Of The Year. She initially sent me 30 plus tracks and this was whittled down to the final, fantastic 13, including Peggy Gou and Matrixxman. While in no rush, her sound and voice - online and on mix - have never sounded brighter or better. 

 

 
 
 

TIMO MAAS 2005

This Timo Maas mix from 2005 is special for two reasons: one, it's a timeless mix of house and techno featuring exclusive's like 'Feedback Welcome' and ice-cool remixes of Sia's 'Numb' and Dinky's 'Acid In My Fridge'; and two, Depeche Mode personally approved Timo's mix of 'Enjoy The Silence' for this particular CD project. Timo's mix was never released digitally, so… Enjoy!

Guy Gerber & Puff Daddy | 11:11 - Tourist Trap | Jamie Jones Remix

This was one of the biggest thrills of my career: we connected Puff Daddy with Guy Gerber and Jamie Jones, and the result was the biggest underground Ibiza smash of 2011, with everyone from Solomun to Pete Tong playing it to death… and in Solomun's case, two seasons later!

 
 
 

Tensnake feat Nile Rodgers and Fiora | Love Sublime | Duke Dumont remix

What to do if Radio One won't playlist your record with Chic legend Nile Rodgers? Simple: get Duke Dumont to create his most lethal piano-house remix to date, keeping Fiora's 'me/me/me' vocal hook and ensuring radio's loss was clubland's gain. 

 
 

Tensnake and Jacques Lu Cont feat Jamie Lidell | Feel Of Love | Kaytranada remix

Like 'Tourist Trap' before it, this was an almighty, soul-fuelled soundclash from some of the best names in electronic music. Kaytranada, meanwhile, took the track to church while Soundcloud figures alone are well past the half million mark.

 
 
 

Pet Shop Boys | Thursday | Tensnake remix

Personally approved by the Pet Shop Boys and politely ignoring the presence of Example, Tensnake made 'Thursday' a hit for Berlin floors and had Panorama Bar resident Andy Baumecker citing it as the perfect track to play as the sun comes up over the city.

 

Skunk Anansie | Because Of You | Michel Cleis remix

This was the very start of a working relationship with Michel Cleis, the man who gave us one the all-time Ibiza greats with 'La Mezcla'. This remix for One Little Indian followed that same incredible attention to percussive detail, and he got dancefloors across the island dancing to Skunk Anansie, albeit without most of them realising!

 

La Fleur | Nightflow | Kenny Larkin remix 

This was the track that really put La Fleur on the map, and that's thanks in part to the incredible remix from Kenny Larkin, which rode a killer organ groove for a full fifteen minutes, and went on to be one of the biggest releases to date for Berlin's Watergate imprint.

 

 

 

La Fleur | Arms Around | Carl Craig C2 Affected Remix

And Kenny's mix was followed by this instant classic from Carl Craig, meaning that La Fleur received a one-two remix punch from two of the biggest names in Detroit techno history. As the wavy music attests, that sounds more painful than it actually is.

 
 

Mixmag Presents 30 Years Of Sven Väth

A 30 year-deep retrospective celebrating the Cocoon techno originator and Ibiza pioneer. Looking back, it's clear that this is probably the most important cover CD I've ever worked on. We start in 1986 with 'Where Are You?' and 'Electrica Salsa' and then work our way through the 90s and end with 'Komm' from 05 and 'Springlove' from 06. History in the making? Nope, history made!
