Endless Groove, Ep. 6

Sometime back in 2013, I recorded an episode of Endless Groove that was never posted here. Real new material will be coming soon, but this little bit of hard drive archaeology shouldn’t go unrewarded.

I’ll post a tracklist as soon as I figure out what it is.

CSS3 mixins for SASS

The Compass project provides a ton of useful mixins for SASS, but over the course of many projects I’ve created a streamlined set that’s more useful for my day-to-day development.

My mixins prefix where necessary and I try to provide smart defaults. The naming convention is descriptive and not just a flattened reproduction of the CSS3 properties being used.

“Next Unread Message” Script for Apple Mail

One thing that’s always bugged me about Apple’s Mail.app is the lack of a quick shortcut to your next unread message, irrespective of which mailbox it is in. Luckily, it was fairly easy to whip up a quick little script which does just that. Note that the script assumes your mail is sorted with the newest messages at the bottom — otherwise, you’ll need to edit line 7, replacing “last message” with “first message”.

Add a keyboard shortcut with your favourite tool, like FastScripts or Quicksilver.

Endless Groove, episode 2

Endless Groove Episode 2 continues in the idea of finding a nice, mellow relaxing groove and just letting it run its course. That’s not to say there aren’t moments that make you want to break out and dance, but this is music to work to. Or to drive to. This is a collection of music that I absolutely love, each track with a sprinkling of magic melody to keep things interesting. It also features one of the best tracks I’ve heard in years, the perfectly named The Magnificent by Lindstrøm. Killer.

  1. Memory Tapes – Treeship (edit)
  2. Tigerskin – Platin
  3. Fritz Kalkbrenner – Blackmail
  4. Hernan Cattaneo & Soundexile – Butterfly Effect (remix)
  5. Pryda – Reeperbahn

  10. Shonen Jump – Vincenzo
  11. Antix – The Hoard (Dousk Remix)
  12. Dølle Jølle – Balearic Incarnation (Todd Terje’s Extra Doll Mix)
  13. Iridium – Lullabies In The Dark

Endless Groove, episode 1

I spend a lot of time sitting at my computer (shocking, I know). Sometimes, I just want some nice, mellow house music that sets itself into a groove and rolls. Some of my sets have had this characteristic, but I decided to create a new imprint called “Endless Groove”, just for these sorts of mixes. It’s got a bunch of tech house and a bit of progressive, and every once in a while the set kicks it up a notch and you may find you head bobbing along and your feet tapping your chair. At least, if you’re anything like me…

  1. The Black Dog – Train By The Autobahn (Part 1)
  2. Danny Howells – September
  3. Lindstrøm – Where You Go I Go Too
  4. Adele – Hometown Glory (Pocketknife’s Familiar Faces Remix)
  5. Junior Boys – Hazel (Ewan Pearson’s House Dub Mix)
  6. Felix Da Housecat & Kris Menace – Artificial
  7. The Chain – Geo
  8. Matias Aguayo – Minimal (DJ Koze Mix)
  9. Schodt – First Breath (Dankann Remix)

  11. Bertrand Dupart & Gwen – Lolita (Rocco Remix)
  12. Low Motion Disco – Things Are Gonna Get Easier (Windsurf Remix)
  13. Paul Keeley – Life Aquatic
  14. Danny Howells – September (re-entry)

phoenix sessions 005

So it turns out that if you wait to too long between set releases, pretty much every one of your favourite artists releases a killer new track. I guess you could refer to this set as the Epic Mix.

16 Bit Lolitas make a couple of appearances with tracks from their magnificent new LP. DJBS favourites UNKLE, Jaytech and Way Out West all contribute in one way or another — I even found room for the new version of the all-time classic Shapeshifter’s track, Lola’s Theme (which made an appearance on one of my first ever mix sets, many years ago).

This will probably be the last set released under the “phoenix sessions” moniker for a while, as I intend to explore some new spaces in the near future. Stay tuned.

  1. Black River (Gui Boratto Remix) – Bomb The Bass
  2. Reformation (Robert Babicz Remix) – Lucca
  3. Coconut Blues – Gabriel Ananda
  4. Bazook (Bazookapella) – Chris the Greek & Matheos
  5. Formula of Fear (Uberzone Dub Mix) – Hybrid
  6. Murder Weapon – 16 Bit Lolitas
  7. Azteca (KOS’s Stadium Mix) – KOS
  8. Twilight (Layo and Bushwacka! Remix) – UNKLE
  9. Lola’s Theme (2008 Re-edit) – The Shapeshifters
  10. Heart & Soul – Yvel and Tristan
  11. The Warning (Terracotta Army’s Eastern Invasion) – Way Out West
