HMiT Exclusive Podcasts Series - #6 - Dale Cooper - House Flavor Mixtape


Dale Cooper, co-fondateur du blog HMiT et initiateur des soirées Toulouse House Nation, nous livre ici un mix à son image. Après une entrée en matière deep et envoûtante, une descente dans un univers suave et fracassé, une voix nous rappelle alors en une transe sexuelle, avant qu'un groove nous enlace lentement des pieds à la tête et nous plonge dans une convulsion alternant entre joie, mélancolie, excitation et frénésie. En quelques mots : grandeur et décadence, sexe, drogue et house music !

Dale Cooper, co-founder of HMiT blog and promoter of Toulouse House Nation Parties, here delivers a mix which reflects his own personality. After a deep and bewitching start, a descent into a smooth and freaky universe, a voice urges us to enter in a sexual trance, before a groove takes us slowly from head to foot and plunges us into a convulsion alternating joy, melancholia, excitation and frenzy. In a few words: rise and fall, sex, drug and house music!

HMiT Exclusive Podcasts Series - #4 - Drama - Voodoo... Mixtape



Quatrième épisode de notre série de podcasts bimensuels. Aux commandes, le boss, Drama, grand manitou des soirées Club Voodoo. Le ton est donné dès l'intro avec un morceau samplant le fameux "Your Love" de Jamie Principle alias Frankie Knuckles qui annonce que le mix sera froid, sombre, beau, poignant. Autrement dit, on a là un mix d'un romantisme noir radical. Ce sera la tonalité dominante, tout au long d'un set qui flirte avec plusieurs genres, qui monte progressivement, qui s'adresse avant tout à la tête plutôt qu'au corps, dont les morceaux se fondent les uns dans les autres avec finesse. Le mix culmine avec le "New York Is Alright" de TV Baby dont la désespérance rageuse touche à la folie. "The lunatic is in my mind"...

Fourth episode of our series of bi-monthly podcasts. On deck, the boss, Drama, the one behind Club Voodoo Parties. The mood is given right from the intro that samples the famous "Your Love" by Jamie Principle aka Frankie Knuckles. It announces that this mix will be cold, gloomy, beautiful, moving. In other words, we have here a mix which is dark and romantic. This will be the main mood, all along this set that passes through different kinds of electronic music, that is rising up progressively, that speaks more to the mind than to the body, whose tracks are melting one another subtly... The mix reaches a climax with "New York Is Alright" of TV Baby whose enraged despair is close to madness. "The lunatic is in my mind"...

Anthem - Passarella Death Squad
Pitch Housing - Carreno Is LB
I Love The Way You Hold My Hips - The Mansisters

HMiT Exclusive Podcasts Series - #2 - Rouge Baiser - Back In The Club Mixtape



Et voilà lancé notre deuxième podcast de la série bimensuelle commencée début 2014. Celui-ci est signé Rouge Baiser, membre parisien de l'équipe HMiT et co-fondateur du blog. Dans ce mix, Rouge Baiser passe avec une grande habileté de la house la plus pure, la plus belle, la plus vibrante de la première moitié - réveillant les fantômes des machines éteintes désormais depuis longtemps dans les usines automobiles de Detroit - à des morceaux plus breakés, plus récents, qui lorgnent vers la scène anglaise actuelle, avant le final, invoquant le génie de Mr. Fingers et son célèbre "Jack had a groove"... Alors, "let there be house!"

Here we go with our second podcast of the bi-monthly series we started at the beginning of this year. This one is signed by Rouge Baiser, parisian member of HMiT team and co-founder of the blog. In this mix, Rouge Baiser goes very subtly all the way from the most pure, the most beautiful, the most vibrating house played in the first half - giving life to the ghosts of motor city machines - to more broken beats and recent tracks, that are influenced by today's English scene, before the final, appealing to Mr. Fingers genious and his famous "Jack had a groove..." So, "let there be house!"

01) Jersey Real Estate Feat. Jovonn - What Is House (Baby Powder Mix)
