Here it is. Volume 7 was almost a year in production. I’ve been wanting to do a “best of the best” mix since my high school days, so you can call it a bucket list project. As this is my Euromix 5, or Anniversary Mix, I went further and doubled the standards set by its […]

HaloHalo = HaloHalo + 1; // As I understand now Originally thinking I’d do an anniversary mix this round, but no. So that means, the no-repeats, 16-track, 40-minute rule applies. Overall, with one exception, I’ve used 95 tracks in sticking with the genre (or trying to, anyhow). Crazy. This volume, more than its siblings, highlights […]

This week, I have to go with Erasure again. Some fans may have never heard this song, because it’s a B-Side. “La La La” really shouldn’t be a B-Side; it could’ve (and should’ve) landed itself on their album of the time, Chorus, to get the exposure it rightfully deserves. (And really, Chorus overall ranks high […]

Long ago, there were a number of Synthpop websites that did Song of the Week features but no longer see them around. I always looked forward to them, so figured I could do one too. Know this won’t be restricted to the genre, though. My first pick is more on the mellow side, Erasure’s Stay […]

Those previous Euromix 3 posts on Soundcloud were taken down, so I’m editing this as needed. When the original Euromix 3 made its rounds in 1993, I was looking for a little more. What VMC did with the remastered version was pretty much it; finishing each side a lot stronger. (Now that I remember what […]

VMC’s Euromixes set the gold standard, and what many of us have come to expect of New Wave mixes back in the 90’s. There were great memories associated with the series, and it appears that no one really has the complete set digitized. Maybe no one I know, but converting them long ago, I have […]

Each Halo-Halo volume gets tougher, but the challenge was good. I’ve been mixing on and off over this last year, trying to find the right combinations. Nothing was really coming together, so I was thinking to put this on hold for an anniversary mix – which I’m planning for the next release. But I got […]

I guess it’ll do. Call it compromise. What may seem easy was not; this was a tougher challenge than the previous trio. I wanted to stick to a “no repeats” rule throughout all mixes, but am making exceptions. One is for a future anniversary mix (see Euromix 5), and the other would be Anything Box’s […]

I can’t believe it’s finished. Why? I finished the last two in September, and similarly, I was looking to add #3. But for the longest time, I was pretty annoyed the transitions weren’t working very well. Only in the last month did it all crystalize, so to some extent, this one was a bit rushed. […]

Over the last few months, I’ve compiled some New Wave playlists only to remember that I never did what I wanted to create many years ago – an actual mix. Since DJ software was released, I didn’t make much of an effort to try. So I recently gave it a whirl, which has evolved into […]
