The Dusk Excursion
November 22, 2010 09:03 AM PST
A deep house junket with soulful grooves laced with some cooler, haunting harmonics, The Dusk Excursion represents my most recent foray into house music, a departure, if you will, from my traditional offerings of techno, techouse, and progressive mainstays. This mix starts with a couple of funky tracks from Clio and Johnny D, gets percussive with Noidoi's "Wicked Snare", Massi Di's "Snare Master", and "Penny From the Lane" by Siopsis, featuring vocals from Mr. Brean, then seques nicely into a beautiful groove from Ekkohaus. The mix takes a deeper turn into songs by Wiretappeur, Jurek Przezdziecki, Loco Dice, among others, before rolling full circle into M.A.N.D.Y & The Sunsetpeople's eponymous epic progressive house monster and finishing off with the equally entrancing yet haunting "The Curtain" by Goodwill. I tried to capture the mood of sundown, of dusk and the end of light, leaving listeners wondering just what lies behind the curtain of darkness once the last rays of the sun disappear behind the horizon. Hopefully the sensation works for you as you enjoy my latest mix album. Peace!Michael St. Patrick Live on Club 91 KCPR 91.3 FM - CD Length Version

Second part of an almost two-hour set performed live on the air at Cal Poly's radio station KCPR, on their weekly EDM show Club 91. More gritty, hypnotic, pounding techno from the likes of Chris Fortier, Blood & Tears, Sinisa Lukic, and Hans Bouffmhyre, segueing into more of the Italian techno sounds of Piatto, Dandi & Ugo, and Alex Di Stefano, with an electro finish from Volsoc you don't want to miss. Set your volume to 11 and jack some shit up!

First part of an almost two-hour set performed live on the air at Cal Poly's radio station KCPR, on their weekly EDM show Club 91. All the stops were pulled out for this one, so you will hear some gritty, hypnotic, pounding techno from the likes of Adam Beyer, Eric Sneo, Joseph Capriati, m0H, Secret Cinema, The Advent, Cari Lekebusch, and more in this first 53 minutes of the show. If you like your techno raw, assaulting, and blended to perfection, this mix is something you'll enjoy.

A collection of tracks from the fantastic We Love Berlin 1.2 compilation, this is some of Germany's finest minimal techno from some of their top artists, starting with Neal White's minimal electro shaker "Hobby Buddhist" and wrapping up with the glitchy evilness of Holgi Star & Bernd Isa's rendition of Seduction's "Pussy". Enjoy yourself some fine minimal techno from Deutschland!

My long-anticipated follow-up to Playful Bytes, "Get Bounced" delivers more quirky, bouncy techouse and techno highlighted by waterdrop loops and swinging basslines. The mix starts off with a couple of deeper, sample-laden deep techouse tracks: Buck's "Daniel" and Audiofly's "1999", before diving headlong into dancefloor-fillers from the likes of Butch, Super Flu, AKA AKA and Kaiserdisco. This is catchy, loop-driven mixology at its best, with an emphasis on track progression, preview samples and seamless mixing.

A deep tribal techno mix based on my live set at Gleaux on May 22...some change-ups halfway through but the vibe remains with drums, some drums, and tight, thumping beats backed up with drums. Some chants, ethnic melodies, and a killer peak track from Laurent Garnier that completely rips up any system with blistering percussion, a driving techno bassline and tenor sax solo thrown in for a bit of jazzy spice. This is a great set for fans of tribal or anybody who likes a lot of drums to bang their bodies to. Enjoy!

A live mix of pounding, ripping techno and techouse with some unexpected twists that will keep you guessing. All tracks were selected off-the-cuff and mixed with an emphasis on transitions that are fairly quick and full of gritty, pants-wetting buildups that peak out into beat storms that batter the senses, while at the same time, keeping a pace that won't wear out the delivery. I hope you enjoy what is typically my genre of choice, insofar as live DJ sets delivered on the dance floor.

Become a fan on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/DJMichaelStPatrick I have been a fan of electronic music ever since the mid-80s, when I bought my first vinyl records from Wax Trax. Unfortunately, I didn't think to do anything except listen to them until a few years ago. For three or four years, DJing was just a hobby, something I did because I loved the music and it was fun to mess around with beats. Not until I realized that I had at least some talent for it did I decide to try and make a go at DJing on the side by putting up some mixes online and trying to get some local gigs in my home base of San Luis Obispo County, CA. I don't have any illusions about where this is going to go, as there are way too many DJs out there, a lot of them better, younger, and more well connected than I, but one thing that will never be surpassed is my love for the music and my desire to share that with others. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer, which is something a little different, but not too much so. Just good dance music, delivered with heart and love in mind. Peace!
