Fragments of a mix by DJ Soma

I have been planning to get this out for a while. I played a set in the ambient zone at Dunedin’s mid-winter Solstice party. Planned to record it that night & upload it shortly afterwards, but there was some pre-set chaos & in the fray I forgot to turn record on. I’ve had a couple of goes at re-recording the mix since then, but have had little time to get it sorted out. Anyway I’m about to abandon my efforts, but just before I do, here are the fragments that I’ve pulled together so far. Enjoy…

I normally try to link to all of the albums used in my mixes, but at this stage don’t have the time sorry. If you really like any of the tracks, you can probably still find most of them with a few searches. Good luck on the hunt. Reply to this post if you really can’t find anything & I’ll see if I can track it down.

Professor Kliq (day 2 of free-music week)

It’s now day 2 of free music week, and my artist of the day is Professor Kliq.

Professor Kliq came to my attention through the Catching the Waves music blog, one of my favorite sources of quality creative commons music, and I was immediately hooked.  Professor Kliq has got the formula for Chemical Brothers-style big-beat nailed.  Huge rolling electro-bass tracks to get the party-core jacking.

The other thing which Kliq does well is groovy downbeat.

Check out Professorkliq.com for all of his releases.  Of particular note are
