Hey. How've you been? You okay?

A small list of things that have happened since the last episode - lived through an ongoing pandemic, bought some Pioneer decks, got married, turned 29, moved to Queens (see episode art), voted for Biden, turned 30, got vaccinated (twice). Still feels a little like March of last year. But I'm okay.

Anyway, here's an hour of some more really smooth progressive and melodic house. afterthought part 2, if you will. This was originally broadcast last weekend as part of a friend's livestream event on Twitch, but I really liked how it came out, and it's been a while, so, hey.

01. Jordin Post - Blossom
02. Boxer - Free
03. EMPHI - Utsikten

Hi. It's been a while. I've made this episode 50% longer than usual to make up for lost time. Good to be back.

In the last couple years I've noticed a trend of big chunky tech house and techno that samples 90s hip hop and r&b. Some labels like Glasgow Underground and Toolroom have been crushing it in part because of this. So here's 90 minutes of what it would sound if Blonde, OutKast, J-Kwon, Daft Punk and Deborah Cox all hung out at Output (RIP).

01. Shiba San & Tim Baresko - All I Need
02. Illyus & Barrientos & Siege - Questions
03. CASSIMM - Atliens (Hands Up Mix)
04. Kill Your Heroes - When I'm Not Around
05. Del-30 - You Won't Regret
06. Tuff London - Talk To Me
07. GW Harrison - Get Loose
08. Jack Back - (It Happens) Sometimes
09. Cozzy D - The Upside Down (Mark Knight Remix)
10. Danny Howard - Two Three One (PAX Remix)
11. Matonii - That's What You Said
12. Secondcity & George Smeddles - Groove Is In
13. Lenn & Lexx - Get The Party Started
14. Romanthony - Too Long (Kevin McKay & Marco Anzalone Remix)
15. Martin Ikin - Ultra Violet
16. Siege - I've Been
17. Chuck Roberts feat. Monique Bingham - In The Beginning (There Was Jack) (Illyus & Barrientos Remix)
18. Weiss - Feel My Needs

Last night - Wednesday morning - my country collectively decided to elect into office a racist misogynist with selfish ideals unlike anything we've ever seen in our government. All day Wednesday I felt equal parts gutted, angry and depressed - worried that we'd be soon be erasing decades of progress that would affect me and those around me I love. All thanks to someone I believe to be the worst major party nominee in modern American history.

Without going into deeper politics, what I took away from the 2016 US election is that we tend to associate ourselves as humans with others who share most of our beliefs. By doing so we set ourselves up for a nasty wake-up call, realizing how many of our neighbors do not share them. In this particular case, these are not simply beliefs, but basic human rights that now seem to have the potential to be revoked.

We must stand together, we must be vigilant, and we must not for a second doubt or be afraid of what makes us unique.

So tonight I decided to cope with the best artistic medium I know, and pulled together a hodge podge of tracks that are currently making me happy. It's very unlike any podcast episode I've ever recorded, and I wouldn't be surprised or offended if it's the worst thing you've ever heard. This one was for me, and it worked wonders.

01. Mausi - Move
02. Fono - Feet On The Ground
03. Luttrell - Good Day
04. Armin van Buuren feat. Jaren - Unforgivable (Matteo Monero Extended Remix)
05. Shingo Nakamura - Whither (Shawn Mitiska Remix)
06. Our Stolen Theory - Warmest Day (Talamanca Remix)
07. Soundprank - Boundless Energy
08. Jason Ross - Valor
09. Above & Beyond pres. OceanLab - Another Chance (Dan Veytia Edit)
10. GRiZ feat. Big Gigantic - Good Times Roll

I said something to it on Twitter earlier this year, but tia is not just a mixshow podcast to me. A lot of craft, curation and love goes into the show. There are never any track repeats across episodes, and to that end I try to play only tracks that mean something to me, or at least have a good memory associated to it. If it doesn't (and it's just a really good tune), just putting it in the show does that nicely.

I give tia episodes a lot of afterthought too. During the sequencing and mixing step, there's always some other track that upon first glance I never thought to use, well after the mix is where I want it to sit. I toss it in, and suddenly it clicks far better than I thought it could. I can't take it out now, otherwise it seems incomplete.

In our first studio episode in over a year, which brings the tempo down to the low 120s, the track that did it for me was the final one.

01. Boom Jinx & Meredith Call - Bring Me Back Around (Shingo Nakamura Remix)
02. Fakear - De la luz
03. Mambo Brothers vs. The Temper Trap - Sweet Momento (Dan Veytia Mashup)

07. Fred V & Grafix - Recognise (Panda Remix)
08. prodigal - time
09. Cazzette - Sleepless (Dear David Interpretation, Dan Veytia Cut)
10. Yotto feat. CAPS - Wondering
11. Matt Lange feat. Jeza - I Can't Forgive (Jallen Remix)
12. Disclosure - Afterthought

Woah, déjà vu. Haven't recorded a decent set since last year, at this same event no less! All the same it's good to be back. Again. (again.)

A bit of a wild night, and I was glad to be able to dig deep into my library for a few clubbier records. Dat JOYRYDE tho. I also couldn't help but drop in a couple brand-new edits of mine, including "Voulez-Deux" - based off a Mark Knight tune which clearly needed even more ABBA even after getting stuck in my head on a Memorial Day weekend trip to Vegas.

Major shouts to Keith for working his magic on this live recording, and Max for his stupefying good ability to operate a camera.

I was invited to fill an empty slot at a dance that happens nightly at this little art convention that happens every summer. All things considered it was a killer night, playing some groovy tunes on a Saturday night. This is the live recording straight from the board, and I liked it so much I decided to use it as an episode of the show.

"waving goodbye." A triple meaning for some smooth, sexy, wavy music that this mix contains, the long hiatus that the show went on between studio episodes 006 and 008, and the common gesture. Touching on some indie dance, glitch hop and even a little disco.
