JD Pleks – Shadow Dancing (techhouse mix)


Finally I have got round to sourcing some new music and putting together a mix! It’s been far too long since the last set I put together of new tracks. This here is 60 minutes of techhouse, some drifting, some driving and some just a ‘wee bit different’. It’s not like the last techhouse mix that I recorded – Rallying Call – in that this one is a lot less repetitive and has a lot more distinctive rhythms and melodies in it.

I recorded this full-on techhouse mix back in August of this year (2010) but have sat on it for a couple of months as I wasn’t too sure about it – I was worried that the middle section was a little too samey for listening to, but one of my friends (thanks Stephen!) said:
‘Aye, it might be a bit similar for a wee bit, but it’s seamless and if you were in a club you would get well lost in it before the sprint to the finish’.

Now thats what I wanted to call it, but it was far too long a title, so I have abstracted the name from the mix. What does it, and the image mean? I guess you’ll have to work that one out for yourselves, maybe while you’re getting lost in the middle section of the mix?

A 60 minute pure techhouse mix that reflects my slower, groovier, housier side. I still love to rinse out funky, chunky techno but this takes a less full-on approach. It’s still aimed at the dancefloor with heavy kickdrums and big bass, but it doesn’t ramp up the BPMs or get too crazy.
