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.

A few years ago I knew I was in trouble. I was feeling driven into the dirt. I was wiped out on all levels and without a shred of optimism. I knew I was truly scraping the bottom when, save a few favourite classic albums, for the first time in my life all music sounded flat and uninspiring.

This was a pretty serious state of affairs.

Music has always been a place I can go to, be at or be in where I can feel truly free. Music has bailed me out on many lonely occasions, and infinitely raised the level of my most special social times. I never felt more scandalized than when, as a kid, my parents would threaten to take my music away.

All of the best times of my life have been spelled out and punctuated by music. I feel this strongly now. All of the plaque that builds up on my mind's lines of classification have dissolved. I feel the grittiness that comes with a fresh start.

This mix takes a mucky kaleidoscopic flight that starts off in dark branches, and slowly angles toward a golden slice of moon in a warm night sky.

Well, it's Spring and I've been going through all of my possessions (especially the stuff hidden in the closets). I've been trying to thin things out.

I don't mean this in a hoarderish way, but I find it difficult at first to part with things. Once I get on a roll though--old ugly dishes are stacked next to redundant kitchen appliances, bags of clothes pile up next to boxes of books and records. I feel free to dispose of nearly anything... and then I find a small box of old photos that bring back happy memories long buried in a blurry mind... and i remember how many of them used to be tacked to my wall a long time ago.

This mix is casual and uplifting in a spaced out kind of way. It's inspired by the fresh spring air blowing through my open window.

Emotions seem to run a bit more intensely in December. Feelings of happiness and unity are awkwardly balanced with those of isolation and obligation. Celebration is mixed with reflections about the end of another year, and all the possibilities of the next are suspended on a dusty horizon.

This mix is a festive toast to comfortable company, and some of the best cooking and baking I've ever eaten in my life. This really has been an excellent 'winter season.'

Thanks to everyone who has enjoyed the site this year. I wish you all the best in the New Year! I don't know about you, but I'm kind of looking forward to starting a fresh decade. Take care.

Whether it's a doorway, a border, a grave or a new way of life, sometimes standing at a threshold can feel like standing on the edge of a cliff, and even momentary thoughts of crossing feel like falling... I'm not sure if it's the November rain here on the west coast of Canada that's making me so introspective lately, but whatever it is makes me want to put the the coffee pot and fireplace on and listen to some of the amazing tracks that have been coming out the past while.

I've been really into two fairly specific styles of track lately. One is spacey and moody, ethereal or 'ghost-like.' The other is more organic, with sounds sampled from 'traditional' instruments. This mix marries these two styles and incorporates a definite 'tip of the hat' to the classic early 90s era of electronic music.

I made my first trip to New York City this month and, I have to say, it was pretty amazing. I've been living a very spacious and secluded life for the past while which made the vibrancy (and sheer volume) of life in NYC pleasantly overwhelming. It's been a long time since I've been among so many people: so many lives.

This is a travelling mix, so to speak--inspired by a lust for life... and rain on the windshield.

Time has been rushing by incredibly quickly for the past while. I often forget what day it is and feel total denial when I have to flip the calendar (yet again). Sadly, this has also led to lengthening gaps between my mixes over the past few months. Thanks to the rejuvenating effects of warm spring air I have a number of things planned for the rest of the season and into the summer that I'm sure will remedy the problem.

With this mix I go back to basics: make it sound like something is either happening, or about to happen. The result is a stormer--perfect for road trips to old cities, visits to small islands, and flights, both international and fanciful.

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.

Nothing plays on the imagination in a more ambivalent way than uncertainty. One day feels ecstatic--the start of a new life, the shedding of outmoded thought and perception, freedom from captivity--and the next feels like a drudgery of repeated mistakes, the resurfacing of old insecurities, a dark and inescapable sentence.

This mix swims darkly. I've selected these tracks mainly for their texture and moodiness--reflections of light on the surface of a deep and ever present abyss.

I read Mark Z. Danielewski's "House of Leaves" last week and it twisted up my concept of space in really cool ways (and it freaked me out too). If you've read it give me a shout on my contact page. It's one of those books I should have read with a friend 'cause now I feel like no one can understand why I feel so dark and unsettled.

This mix is much more subtle and spacious than my last few mixes. It runs just over an hour and has some of my favorite tech-style tracks from the past month or so. As I made this mix I was thinking about a warehouse party with lasers, smoke and big visuals. I was thinking about the darkest hours of a mid-summer outdoor party...

  1. Dubnitzky and Curly "Nach Eins Kommt Zwei" (Andomat 3000 Remix)
  2. Marc Depulse "Remember 87"
  3. Seth Troxler and Patrick Russell "Doctor of Romance"
  4. Shlomi Aber "Tokyo Shanghai"

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?

  1. Dejonka feat. Piemont "Headcruise" Klang Gymnastik
  2. Remo "Mizar" Confused
  3. Acid Pauli "Gwar is Not the Answer" Smaul
  4. ADJD aka Alexi Delano and Jesper Dahlback "How About that Thing?" Harthouse
  5. 2-4 Grooves “The Way I Do” (Steve Muranos Electro Makeover) Scorpio (France)
  6. Trashtalk "Spanish Fly" Craft
  7. Solee "Impressed" Parquet (Germany)
  8. The Fix "Medication Time" Yeah:No
  9. Gui Boratto "Beautiful Life" Kompakt
  10. Sandiego "Rogoredo" Trapez
  11. Stylophonic "Baby Beat Box" (Audiofly Remix) Phouse (Italy)
  12. Sebastian Roya "Distancias De Noche" Connaisseur
  13. Oliver Huntemann "Sao Paulo" Confused
  14. Redshape "Species" Present
  15. Bukaddor and Fishbeck "Polterabend" My Best Friend
  16. Mia "Swoon" (Shonky rmx) Substatic
  17. Zander VT "Dig Your Own Rave" Memo
