Kaskade vs Rihanna – Disturbia 4AM (The Joshi*Toshi Mashup)

Original Elements:

  • Rihanna – Disturbia
  • Kaskade – 4AM (Adam K & Soha Dub)

It’s a rather chill track. But IMO it’s pretty good to end a set to.

Rihanna’s vocals on this one may sound a little weird, and that’s because it’s a rather low-birate DIY acapella (which was the only acapella I could find; I’ve looked everywhere for an HQ one). You may notice the low quality of the vocal… but on large booming speakers it’s probably difficult to tell.

Hope you all like it or find it useful for your own DJ sets.

I’m back in Canada. Now what?

Back in Canada: America’s Hat. And it feels (rather) great to be back. The sun is up from 7 in the morning straight on till 8:30 at night, and it’s amazing. I’m eager to get back to school and make mixes and get gigs to play. Anyway this is gonna be a long post…

So September 2009 will be home to two mix releases from me. Sock Rocker! 2, and Transit to Tokyo.

  • Sock Rocker is a minimix series I started earlier this year and it basically is just edgy electro/house that’s full of sockrocking energy and noise (the good kind). I’ve actually finished mixing Sock Rocker! 2 but I’m just waiting for next week to release it. Release date for this will be Thursday, September 03. Expect to hear this tune, this tune, and this tune.
  • Transit to Tokyo is a full CD mix filled with trance/progressive. The mix is structured to simulate a travel journey… More info on this next time. Release date is going to be September 17. So for now just chew on this promomix that’s now available through Soundcloud, and downloadable too.

I like putting plenty of thought into my mixes. I like progression. I like to start out mellow, build up to energy, and then spend some time cooling down. It’s kinda like an exercise workout!

What was summer’s biggest radio anthem… I Know You Want Me by Pitbull. By biggest I mean, most overplayed.

Have a good weekend.

Joshi*Toshi presents Lights Down Low

Download the mix here!

Lights Down Low is a half-hour mix of downtempo/triphop/chillout fare, combining sounds from across the spectrum to present something for your afterhour moments. A quick cheeky edit of Adagio For Strings sets the moody tone for the mix before crawling along the vast ethnic landscape of Traveller, and descending into the darker vocal territory with A Perfect Lie (featured on Nip & Tuck’s Soundtrack) and long-standing trip-hop classic that could possibly leave you feeling Numb. Topping off the journey are some rather light funky excursions by downtempo geniuses dZihan & Kamien and Ralph Myerz & Jack Band…

Tracklisting is as follows in the ‘album cover’ I made… just to brush up on designing skills.

I hope you enjoy the mix…

Upcoming Things…

So I’m glad that Eclectic Electric is nearing the 40th episode mark. And I’m planning to have a Michael Jackson tribute special for the 40th episode.

Running a 2-hour show every week is a large challenge! But I’m giving this show a lot of effort right now.

When I’m back in Canada, I plan to expand the show to my local uni’s radio show. And have live gigs at the on-campus bar to promote not just my music, but also the radio show.

Oh I’ve just listened to a pair of early-2000s albums from Four Tet. It is truly amazing… Go on Youtube and search for some of their material. I’m not the right guy for labelling, but I think they’re filed under indie/jazz/downtempo/electronica or something like that.

Another amazing record is Telefon Tel Aviv’s Immolate Yourself, which is truly emotional. It carries their signature sound from the first album, but brings out more of an indie kick.

Have you tried sleeping to the sound of Riceboy Sleeps? Or maybe waking up to their sound? The ambient sound really just reminds me of old photographs of me and my family in a large open field. That kind of thing…

Till next time,

As heard on EE027 (Part 1 available for download).

Original Elements:

  • Flo-Rida feat. Fergie & – In The Ayer
  • Wolfgang Gartner – Frenetica

This isn’t a very proper DJ-friendly mashup because I choose to only ever mix them together live, but it’s still effective to loop the first part in and loop the last parts.

I think these two separate tracks go hand in hand because they are conveniently in the same key! Here it is.
