Beware the Ides of Mars



Ok so I'm still working on my DJ skills and I'll be the First To Admit that my mixes aren't perfect. But I have come to one conclusion and I think Mateusz can back me up on this: just like you play pool much better three or four pints in, DJing comes easier under the influence. This is just a mix I made for the Ides of March, a collection of old and new stuff starting off with a band that needs no introduction, Röyksopp. Their new songs are all over the blogospheres (is that how you say it?), except for "It's What I Want"--a song which works above all because, as opposed to those tracks which feature guest singers, the vocals play an equally integral part as the beat and melody, almost to the point where you can't really understand what they're saying, like the way that a Hendrix riff starts to sound like a sentence after a few listens. Listening to this and "Happy Up Here," it seems The Norwegian duo have developed a new, more darkdancehouse sound since Melody AM... So enjoy that and the rest. Here's the link and tracklist.
