What is a Slobberknocker? It’s a song that gets you off your ass, bopping up and down, and possible singing at the top of your lungs. It’s a song that sets you in a frenzy on the dance floor for no apparent reason. It’s fun, it’s high energy and these are some of my favorite Slobberknockers.
This is Volume 2 in the mix series of songs that sound like they would be included in a modern day John Hughes Soundtrack. I used a few different approaches in picking songs. Some of these songs might perfectly fit in one of his 80s masterpieces while others are guess how the sounds that he covets might have evolved over the years.
This mix is made up of rare 80’s songs acquired through a friend who worked at a record store in Europe in the early 80s. The majority of these songs never existed anywhere else but on vinyl. Each one of these songs could’ve carried a scene in any John Hughes film. A lot of these songs are now forgotten forever, besides the ones who lived the era.
This is volume 3 in my modern synth series which features brand new synth tracks from up and coming artists along with some new releases from more established artists. All of these tracks are synth heavy and many are inspired from the new wave era in the 80s.
DJ Mikey presents a mix featuring some of his favorite Depeche Mode remixes
This mix features brand new music from legendary 80s new wave artists. All of these songs have been released after 2010. Many of these songs are as good, if not better, then the artists original work from the 80’s. It’s great to see that these bands that we grew up with are still making relevant music today.
This mix features a variety of Post Punk and Indie tunes that we like to call “Vampire Vocals”. It features all male singers who have deep dark voices. This is a great mix to listen to on your darkest days!
Most of my current musical taste has been sculpted by the music from the legendary Detroit radio show, Big Sonic Heaven – hosted by Darren Revell. That show pioneered a new music movement that celebrated modern ethereal music featuring a variety of dreampop, trip hop, brit pop and more.
This is Volume 2 of a mix featuring bands whose sound is inspired by the Drive Soundtrack. This is a popular theme amongst our followers and this mix features songs from this genre over the last year or so, blended together for your enjoyment.
This mix celebrates some of my favorite recent Post Punk tracks. The songs in this mix will remind you of bands like Interpol, Jesus & Mary Chain, and plenty of other post punk favorites. Most of these bands are pretty new, so this is a good way to explore some up and coming bands.
This mix doesn’t feature a particular genre of music. Instead, it features songs of a few different styles all of which make you “feel”. Some of them draw you in with the lyrics, others with the vocals, or perhaps the music. When listening to these songs, you can feel the emotion and honesty of the artist in their delivery.
This is the second volume in the Modern Synth series that features some of DJ Mikey’s favorite new synth tracks from his Halcyon Waves show over the past 3 months.
