After sorting through all the recent promos and moving them to their respective folder based on genre (most to the recycle bin) I have to say I was unimpressed. So much so, there was no way I was going to eek out a decent Spring Edition so quick. So I decided to do something I never do; that is, go back and listen to some old sets for inspiration.
From 2007 – 2009 I created a series called Deep Edition, which later evolved into System Edition. These sets were compiled of songs that I really liked but at the time didn’t quite fit in to what I was doing. So, I’d throw them all together and create these eclectic mixes of house, progressive, tech, deep house, trance, you name it. To say the least, they were interesting if not down right strange in some cases.
I focused on six sets of the System Edition from 2009 and starting listening to them over several days and was blown away by many of the songs. Sadly, I did not keep the track list for each set so I had to Google lyrics to determine the original artist and title. Once found, I’d search my library to pull them out. There were well over a hundred songs on these sets, so this was tedious and time consuming but ultimately well worth the effort.
I pulled about 25 of the songs I wanted to use and then cut it down to nineteen based on what worked. A couple of the songs were actually big hits while the rest were relegated to the underground scene, which makes this all the more interesting. I like this set so much, Back Spin could end up being the basis for a new series that focuses on past EDM hits and misses.
Please take this for a spin and let me know what you think. I’ll go back sometime this weekend and re-listen to the songs I’ve already set aside for the Spring Edition plus some other new stuff that recently shuffled in. Hopefully, this little side step will give me a new perspective on a new circuit set so I can get that out to you soon.
Until then, ENJOY!
