My mixes have been getting increasingly dark lately, which is great, but this month I want to lighten things up a bit and think back.

Friends, there has been a lot going on in my life lately. I'm transitioning to a whole new era. In addition to continuing my work as a dedicated internet disc jockey I am proud to say that I am now officially a cemeterian. I know that it might seem strange to be happy about spending my days at a cemetery preparing graves, completing burials and tending to memorials, but it's true--I love it.

I've been busy getting ready to move and settling in to my new job so this mix is a bit off the cuff and packed with nervous excitement.

Thanks to everyone who has enjoyed jimrebel.com this year. I wish you all the best this 'winter season.' See you in 2009!

The days are getting shorter here in the northern hemisphere which is good in a way. I'll be forced to get off of the beach, out of the lake and cut my outdoor afternoon nap short. I can finally get serious about some of the important projects that I've been meaning to get under way. Like I have a bunch of video tutorials for actors to learn various accents. I've never been good at picking up languages so I figure that learning an accent is almost as good. It'll be cool to switch to a crazy accent whenever needed. I'm sure it will come in handy some time, or at least be good for telephone pranks.

I've been paying close attention to the electro blogs lately and according to the most astute analysts we are currently in an 'electro recession.' I can't help but agree. The most interesting tracks coming out these days are heavy tech rollers like Dubfire's remix of Radio Slave's "Grindhouse" (59:23 in the mix), indie vocal remixes like Kasper Bjorke's "Doesn't Matter" feat. Tomboy (38:20), and classic styled tracks that bring back memories of the golden age of electronic music like Runaway's "Brooklyn Club Jam" (52:05) and the Herz Aus Holz mix of Kollektiv Turmstrasse's "Holunderbaum" (80:50).

This one is a mix-heavy affair, and was inspired by my old disco 7"s from when I was a kid. If I hadn't listened to those tracks thousands of times during my formative years I'd be a different person today.

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.

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.

It's Fall, a time for change. And since I've had so much on my plate lately, I've been spending way too much time procrastinating and sifting through all of the the rad new releases of this past month. Here are twenty five of the sickest offerings of Fall 2007 in a 58 minute mix. And believe me, there have been some beauties this season. Like the Jesse Rose remix of Armand Van Helden's latest offering "Playmate" (15:33 in the mix). The old school microphone stylings and indie breakdown along with Rose's wicked bass make for an excellent and very new disco sounding track. The Spirals' "Without Control" remixed by Jet Project (24:10) is beautiful and very Daft Punk-esque. It's definitely one of my favorites right now. Deadmau5 has been in the top 5 on Beatport for the past while with his amazing track "Not Exactly" (27:07). He masterfully combines rhythmic grooviness and epic vibes to form an emotive, dancefloor-heavy track. Another of my absolute faves right now is the Jimpster remix of Justin Martin's "Sad Piano" (45:10). The off beat piano sample and the driving disco bassline make for another bad assed and very Fall-sounding track.

I hope you're having a great Fall season wherever you are.

This mix is all about electro-rock! Cajuan, Digitalism, Hot Chip, Primes, Depeche Mode, Klaxons, Nitzer Ebb, Boys Noize. I have a bunch of really fresh tracks these days. I recently recieved a pre-release copy of "Facades and Pink Forms," the new album by Vancouver's electronic punk champs, Primes and I couldn't resist putting three tracks from it in this mix. Thanks guys, awesome stuff! "Facades and Pink Forms" will be released soon on the Washington DC label Postfact Records. I also have a remix of the amazing new Digitalism track "Pogo" which is sure to be a summer hit. The Thomas Bangaltier remix of Dj Mehdi's "Signatune" is another insanely good track. It's the kind of song that makes you walk a bit taller as you're treading down the block. The video is great too, and you can check it out here.

This mix was a tricky one to put together, but well worth it. These are some of my favorite rock inspired tracks from the past year or so (and the past couple of weeks), with epic interludes scattered here and there to space out your head.

Here's a selection of some of my favorite tracks from the spring of 2007. I'm particularly partial to Steve Murano's massive rework of "The Way I Do" by 2-4 Grooves (14:25 into the set)--absolutely ridiculously sick. I'm also loving Gui Boratto's "Beautiful Life" (31:27) from his album "Chromophobia." It totally reminds me of old 4AD records stuff, like Lush. It's big and melodic and, in my opinion, very Spring.

This mix starts on a sweaty Berlin dancefloor and ends up tranced out in a field somewhere. Anyone else up for some major outdoor partyage this summer?
