The first single from the legendary bands new album, Chaosmosis, takes the band in a new direction.

This mix contains a collection of some of my favorite remixes including modern takes on classic 80s songs plus remixes of newer songs and artists. Some of my favorite mixers are on here including Dominatrix, Arthur Baker, Marsheaux and more. This is a mostly high energy mix and one that’s good to listen to when getting ready to go out for the evening.
This is Volume 3 of one of my favorite genre’s of music – music inspired by the sounds of the Drive Soundtrack. This mix features new releases that I feel would have fit perfectly on the soundtrack.

Spotify release 1.0.9 continues in it’s attempt to make the product more usable. They are succeeding in adding in little niceties here and there, but at the same time have not offered anything truly innovative in a while. This release adds some aesthetic and usability features, but hasn’t put a huge dent in the list of features that the user base has been clamoring for.
