download: DJ Empirical, “Nous Nous Appelons Disco”
11 mar 2010

This is a mix I made to promote my monthly disco night, Nous Nous Appelons Disco. It’s 80 minutes of stuff I play at my night, meaning Disco (of any kind, but especially space/leftfield/nu-disco), Italo, High NRG, and even some proto-House — basically anything even vaguely related!

The tempo of this mix ramps up from a beginning-of-the-night 109 to a frantic 133 near the end, to mimic the usual pace of the Nous Nous Appelons Disco nights.

If you dig the stuff in this mix, come out on Friday!

download: DJ Empirical, “Here Are Some Songs: June 2009”
jun 2009
I made this some time during the last week of june, 2009. I was practicing, making sure the upgraded version of Serato worked fine on my machine before my gig at the Pris Prom. It wasn’t particularly tight, and it required a lot of ex post facto level adjustments, but there’s some good stuff in there, so i thought i’d post it.


Cerrone – Supernature
DAF – Brothers
Bobby O – She Has a Way
Ottawan – You’re OK
Parvati Khan (Bappi Lahiri) – Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Aaja
M.I.A. – Jimmy
Magic Men – Pop Corn
Sparks – Tryouts for the Human Race
JPLS – Spooked
Portishead – Machine Gun (Noise Floor Crew remix)
Uusitalo – Nälkälaulu
Die Haustiere – Danneggiato (Evan Scott remix)
Sarah Goldfarb – Confusion
Ellen Allien – ITS
Pole – Winkelstreben
The Librarian – The Enemy
OI!tER – I Wanna Be Your Underwear
Random Source – Face Like a Robot (original)
Front 242 – Tragedy >For You<
Skepta – Rolex Sweep (extended mix)
NWA – Something 2 Dance 2
Apotheosis – O Fortuna (Apocalypse Chorus mix)

As you can see, it starts out with italo & disco, then delves into techno for a while, and ends up in a very ridiculous place.

oh, and about halfway through, i bumped the phono/line switch and you get to hear about a second of the serato record. ha! very professional.
