It's been hard to sleep lately. My room is stifling and hot, plus it's been fun filling the short nights with warm bike rides, sweaty hot dancing and cool dips in the ocean.

This mix is lively and fun. I mix up the beats a bit as well. There are breakbeats, 'bmore' beats, lo-fi and hi-fi beats... and plenty of bass to shake things up a bit.

I hope you're having a great summer, wherever you are!

I've been thinking about the future a lot lately--not really far ahead, just like two to five years or so--and I'm trying to decide where to focus my attention. I'm trying to decide what to continue, what to let go of and what to change.

jimrebel.com has been the most rewarding musical exercise I've been a part of as a DJ. Thanks to everyone who enjoys the site. Thanks for your supportive messages and comments. And special thanks to Mave, Madlove, Kali and Maree.

This mix is a bit of a long'un at just over two hours, and it's a tribute to enjoying the simple things this summer like stashing a bottle of vodka in your beach bag, drinking a spiked slushie on the bus or enjoying a nice cold six-pack in the parking lot next to the beer and wine...

I'm going through some sort of life change these days and I'm trying to figure it out. I find myself doing weird things. Like I'll stare out the window at a robin running around on the front grass listening for worms and after a while I start to well up and I'm not sure if I feel really happy or miserable. Where was I infected with this nagging sentimentality? I think I need to seriously look into getting a dog or some other small animal companion (or one of those cool sheep in the pic).

One of the first dj mixes that got me thinking about becoming a disc jockey was "70 Minutes of Madness - Journeys by DJ Coldcut" (1995). It combines a number of (now hopelessly dated) styles, textures and vibes in a relatively short, tight mix.

My mix takes a little shorter journey than Coldcut's "70 Minutes..." (it turned out to be exactly 55mins, which is anomalous) and it takes a really different path. It starts off in a chaise lounge at a day-party in my backyard (or yours), then after smoking too much weed it decides to go for an uneasy (yet psychedelically meaningful) walk. A little later it comes back to the party and 'drinks the fear away' while pumping up it's bike tires to go for what turns out to be the sweetest, most epic seaside bike ride of all time.

  9. Housemeister "Inordertodance"
  10. KIM "Fistogram"
  11. SebastiAn "Motor"
  12. Trip "Who's That" (Jack Beats Remix)
  13. Kissy Sell Out "Harriet" (Kissy's Special Annie Mac Edit feat. Bolt Action Five)
  14. Campari Bros "Tawik" (Maurizio Gubellini Mix)

Spring is in the air here on the West Coast of Canada. I can tell because outside my window the birds, who were so chilled out all winter, are now diving at each other and fighting for dominance. But that's what Spring is all about isn't it? LOVE. And what better kind is there than a brand new love?

This is a minimix compared to my last post; it's 18 tracks in about 50 mins. I start out heavy on the dancefloor, take a brief vacation, and bring it home fully tripped out.

Good day! It's been a little longer than usual since I've posted a new mix on jimrebel.com, but there's been a lot going on. Last month I re-located to the amazing and beautiful Vancouver Island, but not before playing shows with the likes of legendary producer Prince Paul (De la Soul), and Wagon Repair recording artist HRDVSION. On top of that our crew threw the first Boom Boom Room Party complete with a packed house, rad vibes, and sweaty naked electro madness (literally). What a night! What a month! Thanks to all the peeps who were involved!

2007 has been a great year. I saw two of the best shows I've ever seen (Daft Punk and Roger Waters). I survived extremely long tattoo sessions (and completed two full sleeves) with the amazing Kurt Wiscombe with incredible results. I've made a crap-load of rad new friends both online and in real life. And now I'm poised to make some tracks myself in my new (albeit low fi) studio. Things are looking up!

Thanks again to everyone who visits jimrebel.com and enjoys the site. Hello again to everyone who has contacted me through the site this year. It really is always great to hear from you. And I'd like to send a special shout out to the crazy amount of people checking out the site from Holland and Germany--all together I'm getting more visits from you than everyone else combined! Keep Rockin'! I'll be seeing you soon.

I'd recommend a bottle or two of champagne to go with this mix... but then again I'd recommend a bottle or two of champagne to go with just about anything! Enjoy.
