DJ Ides – Vitamin (B)reaks Supplement Vol. 2

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

This mix is old (2007) but (imho) pretty good. This was actually done in an attempt to somewhat re-create a mix that I did while living in Manhattan as a supplement to a house mix I was distributing at the time. I was never completely satisfied with the original Vitamin (B)reaks Supplement (volume 1), yet friends were constantly hounding me to send them another copy of it. My answer? This mix… a deeper, darker and BETTER breaks mix, incorporating many of the same tracks as featured on the original but mixed with more technical precision.

ThisĀ  mix was done in Jersey City, NJ on two Tech 1200 turntablesĀ  and my Rane TTM-54i mixer, a few weeks before I moved to Eastern Europe. The mix is, as always, 100% live.

This mix hits deeper, harder, darker and faster than a pit viper striking a native on the ankle with a deadly blow. It starts with funky house and electroclash, but rapidly diverges into mind-bending myelin-destructive breakbeats. The continuous overlay between Transformer Man’s “Giant” and the incredibly ethereal “Inka,” by Beatman and Ludmilla is one of the best mixes I have ever recorded, almost, yet not quite, eclipsed by the transition between ASAP (Andy Page) “Firebird” and the dope-beyond-belief Scrambler production “Free,” coming out of Australia and also featured on the extremely awesome Phil K “Balance 004″ compilation.

Enjoy it and, whatever you do, DON’T TURN OUT THE LIGHTS!!!
