Poolcide: An Afternoon Mix

All mid-tempo and slippery, this mix is fun, slinky, sexy, warm and a little bit languid. Listen to this while paying attention to everything else.

Strikes Twice

This mix was created for the Lighting In A Bottle DJ Mix Contest. Only artists from the 2011 lineup were used, either as primary producers or as remixers. It came out really cool. It didn’t win. Go figure.

As promised, and after what feels like forever, a proper tech-house mix. Finally. This starts with some really cool explorations, then puts the hammer down for a photo finish.

Clicky-click the pic, wag the tail.

Mal*Mart Session

I’ve been meaning to upload this set for a while now. I played the Mal*Mart fundraiser, and I have a long slot between a downtempo DJ and a bangin’ techno DJ. Two hours to get from here to there. I’m really proud of this one. It represents pretty much everything I’m doing these days.

As always, click here to listen, or just click the picture! Lie back, enjoy.

Philip Evans | myTropolis Live Set

Recorded on April 28th, 2010 at myTropolis in Pasadena. Straight to the board, mistakes and all. Imagine crowd noises in the background, because the board doesn’t capture that.

Rainy Days And Fridays

A rainy Friday night, a good way into a good bourbon drink, life’s all warm and fuzzy. And out came this perfect little mid-tempo Nu Disko groovester. It makes me very happy every time I listen to it, and that’s pretty much what it’s all about, right?

As always, tracklisting in the lyrics window. Click the pic, let it bounce.

Twist And Shout

Twist And Shout

OK, no pussy-footing around. This is straight-up dancefloor material, sticking to a house-friendly groove, but looped and twisted and tossed in a heap somewhere in a back alley. This thing boogies.

As always, tracklisting is in the lyrics window. Click the pic to play.

The World Is Flat

The World Is Flat

This one started as the second part of Italian Smiles, but as the tracklist got longer and the BPMs higher, it eventually demanded to be a separate release. After some long but fruitful negotations, we came to an agreement, and here we are.

Horn samples everywhere, long uninterrupted instrumental lines, constant sidetrips into layered rhythms. This is a jazz ensemble playing in the ruins of an auto plant in Detroit.

Italian Smiles and Snowbunny Dreams

Italian Smiles And Snowbunny Dreams

This one’s very different. A lot of that slow, pretty stuff. Call it Italo-disco, call it Balearic, call it that stuff the kids play these days when they’re not frying their synapses on that awful buzzy noise they call electro. Call it just plain cool, like seabreezes and soft hair.

Ick. I must be getting old.

Clicky-click. Shimmy and sway.

We Live Like Roaches (Never Die)

I’ve been collecting a lot of deeper, more moody stuff lately, and this is the result. Dig in, spread it all over yourself. Don’t worry, you’re soaking in it already. Just don’t turn the lights on.
