Here’s a mix I did recently under my alias of Real Gone Kid for Amber Longs’ Tech Support show. I’d been listening to the first disc of Hernan Cattaneo’s amazing new Balance CD for a few weeks and was inspired by the vibe. In a conversation with the King of Prog a few weeks ago, I asked him about it. His response in typical Hernan style, outlined his love of all music and that he particularly enjoys the deep slow tracks which are rich in melody, like the ones featured on the mix. He pointed out that in a club environment groove based music was much better for dancing to than the complex layered sounds of Balearic house which typically sits around 115bpm.
Featured in this mix is a track I wrote especially for Amber, the opener, Anja Schneider – Dubmission and my new favourite prog housers Weval. I hope you like it, I had a blast putting together. Also many thanks to Audioglider for his amazing contributions and support.
