Vee Mix July ’08

July is almost over so it’s about time I got the latest mix posted for this month. It has been a hectic month with tons of events and dj gigs. We had the Gorge Games, shows in Portland, a Pimp & Ho party at the River City and two Cebu Zodiac Socials this month. On top of that, there were a bunch of private parties as well. No matter how hectic the summer months are the radio show still airs every night at midnight on 94/7fm in Portland as well as weekends on KCGB K105 in Hood River. I’m posting one of my favorite mixes that I aired earlier this month. There is so much great music being released lately that I wanted to get a lot of it in a mix but at the same time inserting a few older tracks at the same time. CSS has a new album out and I probably didn’t even pick the best track off the album but it’s a great intro track into Ladytron’s Seventeen. I’ve been playing a lot of music from their latest, Velocifero, so it was nice to go back to an older track of theirs for this mix. Booka Shade’s latest release is ‘The Sun & The Neon Light’ and you can probably pick any song from that album and throw it into a mix. If you like Underworld and Swayzak, you’ll love these guys. Ladyhawke is a Kiwi born, Aussie bred and now London residing artist on the Modular label and her single got the magic touch from Aussies, Cut Copy. Pure modern pop with an electro disco sound. The Pinkertones are from Barcelona and they are currently lighting up the Warped Tour in the States. Why are these guys even touring with all those garage punk bands? Supposedly they have more energy on stage than any modern day pseudo punk outfit. Check them out if they come to your town. South Rakkas Crew has been remixed to death, but I really like the way THDP turned it into a slow bass grinder. Turn up the volume on the last couple of songs!
