dj bigdirty's: night club musical
JOIN The Night Club Musical Facebook Page at http://www.facebook.com/nightclubmusical This is my monthly Vocal Trance/Progressive House series with some surprises thrown in once in a while. I like to keep my mixes listener friendly, therefore I use a lot of vocal tracks. I am a current resident DJ at Trinity in the heart of Boston where you can catch me every other Saturday night at 63 Chatham St, Boston, Ma where I play a mixture of genres. I've also had residencies in the San Fran Bay area in the late 90's. I love the ethereal sound of trance music. I try to infuse a lot of this in my mixes while still managing to have massive floor fillers/peak time tracks being a part of the mix also. I'm heavily influenced by Andy Moor, Myon & Shane 54, Above & Beyond, Tydi, Max Graham, Kaskade, Armin Van Buuren, the Cocteau Twins and the old school 4AD record label. I'll play/mix any style of music, but I prefer trance, vocal trance, prog-house, trip hop and chillout. Basically I just love music and putting it all together for that 80 minute rush. Every mix I make I hope it tells a story or I have a story about it. My high is a crowded dancefloor, happy faces or you smiling while listening to the mix. Finally this series is about quality Trance tracks that have been released over the past month not quantity. You will rarely hear the same track that has been used previously before. To all of you that have been downloading for the past 2 years, I sincerely thank you for coming in to share my journey. You are my motivation throughout each month. Right before I drop that lead track I think of all you being there in front of me waiting for that first beat. Thank you so much for listening!

11.         [49:59] the track of the year number 1

12.         [55:25] chill track of the year

Well here it is my first ever year-end greatest of track mix.  Counting down from 11 to 1 (had to be different) and even added my chill out track of the year at the end too.  Listen and I will give the tracklist in a couple of weeks- ha. These were the tracks that I immediately turned to full blast in my truck all year long I couldn’t just listen to them at medium volume.  Like Casey Kasem, I counted it down.  Just for laughs I threw in a Funkmaster Flex explosion in one of the mixes for 2 tracks so I could hide the fact that I couldn’t mix them together lol.  Its hard doing a countdown, don’t know how Ferry Corsten does it week to week.  2013 marks my return.  Its great to be back and I even got new equipment this year.  Thank you for the continued support and peer pressure to come back.  I love doing this. Heres hoping your 2014 is the bomb! I cant say enough how much I appreciate you guys listening. Love you all.  Thank God Al Gore created the internet- lol!

 Snow day in the northeast.  Just in case you didn’t know I’ll be moving to Austin Texas in May, keep a look out for me.  I got finals to study for, but got a break and did this one.  Take a closer look, this is the first mix that’s more than 79 minutes.  We going BIG TIME, lol.  This mix was done kind of backwards on my part.  Besides the first track and last track I did it backwards purposely.  17 very good tracks on this one. 3 Instrumentals and the rest vocals for to try and stay true to what night club musical is all about with nice vocals, but every once in a while I hear a instrumental track that blows me away and needs to make the cut for the mix.  Sorry for skipping November on you guys.  I saw a lot of smoke and did not want the fire, so I took care of my school priorities before slinging out anoher mix.  I hope all is well with you.  Send me a note and let me know what ya think about the longer ncm format. Did anyone ever take notice that the girl that sang “crush” is on this mix… Jennifer Paige.  Great job she did.  Until next time, take 2013 out right and bring me in some 2014.

Back when I wasnt doing mixes for night club musical for awhile, I listened to a lot of chillout/downtempo stuff, so why not take some of that and make it available to you guys.  I listened to acoustic stuff too, but wanted to keep this one more along the electronic lines.  Slowdive is named after a shoegaze band I used to listen to in the 90s.  I started the mix out with my favorite band of all time The Sundays.  Harriet Wheeler’s voice is my serenity.  I came across this unreleased track last year, so it was like Christmas for me since the band is no longer together.  I also included a Fleetwood Mac EDM version of Rhiannon on here.  Very good take.  I know you had to take a double-take when you see the name Usher on the tracklist.  Just check this version out-  I LOVE IT. I played it over and over again. Grab your woman or man or a glass of wine, sit by the fireplace or on the bed or do what you do with this compilation of mainly edm chill tracks.  You can call it night CHILLED musical 004 or Slowdive 001.  Whatever it is, I’ll try and make more of these instead of once a year.  Hope ya enjoy this as much as l enjoyed putting it together.

  16. [73:46] matt davey ft kate dowman- sunrise (here I am) 

Coasting along this summer and some great tunes have come out.  NCM 033 is all about the breaks and the builds.  You all know I love starting the mix soft and myon and shane 54 provide that with a great mashup of late night alumni and one of my all time favorites now, when you loved me.  I love amazing female vocals and this one is filled with them.  Linnea Schossow on Stars is beautiful, along with the killer break from Sarah Lynn on Silhouette.  Sometimes a better remix of song comes out after I’ve completed a NCM.  This happened with John Ocallaghan and Breathe.  This remix is 10 times better than the original. Don’t lose your mind on Pep Talk!  Pure HANDS UP!! I finished with a favorite tune of mine originally done by The Cocteau Twins (This Mortal Coil), that was covered by Matt Davey and Kate Bowman- Sunrise Here I Am.  Nadia is back along with my personal favorites Aruna and Tania Zygar for this mix.  Keats said “Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard or sweeter.”  I think you will find these melodies pretty sweet.

Everything is Green out and so is one of my favorite literary short stories.  I had to give an ode to that as the title.  Thank you Angela Swenson from San Antonio, Texas for the work of art used for this episode of NCM.  Hope you all enjoy the feel good tunes.

Been a few months, but I got the itch again thanks to Above and Beyond.  NCM 031 coming straight at ya from a suburb of Boston, called my house.  Just wanted to throw on some fresh sing along head nodding music to start your summer off.  Was totally feeling this when I mixed it and I hope you do too.  I missed mixing something and it just felt like something was missing from my life.  Now I have some fresh stuff to listen to while studying over the summer- bigdirty is a college student now and hanging out with 18 to 22 year olds can put the young back in ya.  Probably my mentality anyway.  This one starts and explosion in your face from the get-go so beware.  I hope ya love this one people and I will try not to be a stranger to the mix again.
