The little mix that Santa Claus forgot

As a 100% bona fide music addict, I take great pleasure in throwing together mixes. The rewarding process of finding tracks that go well together brings me a great deal of pleasure and once I've completed one of these little assembly projects, I always love to give it to anyone who'll listen. So the fact that I haven't shared my latest creation with y'all is a testament to how hard work has been kicking my butt.


Several weeks ago, I found myself with some free time, so I snagged the opportunity to throw some hard trance and club music into my magic cauldron. Giving it a rigorous stirring, the resulting explosion of steam coalesced into DJ Abstract 19: The Synthetic Bliss Mix.

01 Laurie Anderson - Someone Else's Dream
02 Armin Van Buuren - Shivers
03 Carl B - Social Suicide
04 John 00 Fleming - Rasa Lila (Part 1)
05 4 Strings - Treasure Box
06 Reva - Quasar
07 Slusnik Luna & Peter Lowlan - Last Train To Transcentral
08 Bluescreen - Daybreak
09 Solid Globe - North Pole Vs. Sahara (Alex M.O.R.P.H. Remix)
10 Up Above The World - Straight Up Caffeine
11 Jason Nevins - I'm In Heaven (Motivio Vocal Mix)

There are some majorly bangin' tracks on the mix. Starts of slow and a little spooky with a slice of vocal from Laurie A, but then plunges headlong into AVB and pretty much doesn't stop after that. It was especially fun to pull out a (relatively) golden oldie like "Straight Up Caffeine" and the parting track by Jason Nevins always brings a smile to my face. Of the billion and a half tracks that sample MJ's "Human Nature", this is definitely one of my faves. It's also a nice slow down after all that pounding four-on-the-floor.

Anyway, if anyone would like a copy, they can either email me and I'll send you one or you can head over to my website and snag a copy (cover and all) there. Either way, I hope everybody enjoys it.

Feel free to send money as well...
