House trilogy

(Apologies for the lack of posting lately. I've been sick with the flu, and hurt my back shoveling snow. The next day im walking to work and hurt my knees on the dreadful black ice not the best week im having i know. )

Never knew much about house, still don't claim to know much about house but i find myself being more and more engulfed in it's mighty power to make you want to dance! DJ Lokee provides the goods from a live recording submitted in 3 parts so your getting a little over 3 hours of nothing but classics,rarities,smooth edits, and clean blends. While it would take way to long to cover all the material in the mixes i will write about my favorite segment of mix which was part 1 although parts 2, and 3 were very close behind. I probably chose part in in all honesty because i was familiar with more of the music on it and liked how they were incorporated into the mix.

The blending on part 1 is butter, and almost feels like one whole song if you don't listen closely. Even then it's still hard to pick up on lokees mixing during segments at times, the musical build up is insane. Me and my boy were literally in the car listening to this mix and kept saying "oh shit, oh shittt" as each song came up getting us more hype. A perfect example of this "oh shit" extravaganza is when "lisa lisa-let the beat hit em" came on and then blended into "black science orchestras-new jersey deep" we nearly lost our marbles . By the time "Block Parties-africanism" hit with "Bohannons-lets start the dance" i forgot i was grooving for the past 55 minutes. All the mixes are very consistent though and high recommended. Lokee was kind enough as well to provide the playlist for those interested i posted them below with the download links enjoy!!
