Space Heads Mix

This mix is a long one at just under two hours. It’s a collection of my favourite tracks right now, most of which have a touch of drama while keeping the groove strictly on the dancefloor.

Cleansing Ritual Mix

This mix is a heavy one. It’s an imaginary rave complete with smoke, lasers, a quaking soundsystem, and most importantly, a room full of sweaty fist pumping friends.

This mix is fueled by amazing memories, as well as a great sadness that a like-minded individual and friend has died. The punk music in this mix is a fairly typical play list from the old days. These songs really bring me back to the best years of my friendship with Kevin, and the politics of this music will always resonate with me.

In the Bricks Mix

This mix is full of smoke, dusty photographs and reminiscence and is an aggregate of my favorite tracks to come out for a long while—there’s definitely a vibe here that references a lot of the electronic music that makes up the foundation for what I listen to (and listen for) in current releases.

Pushed Around Mix

This mix is, for the most part, a heavy one. It is dedicated to anyone who has ever stood up to corruption, convention or ‘common sense’ and said “No. Things don’t have to be this way.” You are my heroes.

Ghost in a Tree Mix

Photo by John Morgan

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.

Fly as a Kite Mix

This mix is wistful, eclectic and is the third part of what has become a summer trilogy including the Flotation Device and Hot and Bothered mixes. It is inspired by the joys that can come with change, and the ability to comfortably let go of the past.

Hot and Bothered Mix

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.

Hot Black Highway Mix

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.

Two Years Mix

I’ve never been very good at celebrating milestones in my life, but today I’m happy to say that this mix roughly marks the two year anniversary of jimrebel.com. This mix is fraught with tension, and was heavily inspired by the voices a seventh cup of coffee can bring to a sleepless mind.

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.

Slummer 2008 Mix

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…

Third Beach Mix

This is something of a Lifelike tribute mix. I think that Lifelike is the best remixer of 2008 (so far) and his tracks are so perfect for summer. Here are my favorite Lifelike tracks and a few songs that have a similar vibe in a fifty minute mix that’s just perfect for beach ghetto blaster action this season.

Be Alright Mix

This mix 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.

I’m spinning mostly techno these days, but I felt compelled to do a tribute mix for Jackie Mittoo, the Keyboard King of Studio One. He was a true genius on the keyboards, and I could only imagine what kind of music he’d be making with today’s technology if he were still with us.
