Week 13 - This Thursday was the final week and the 'best of' Lost in Lockdown chosen by myself and the Lost In Lockdown Community. Whilst we were are all in 'Lockdown' I played over 13 weeks to a faithful community who joined me live each week from all over the world. https://soundcloud.com/djdannyjarvis/lost-in-lockdown-02072020 It was a wonderful chance for me to dig around my record collection and play some uplifting and emotional music also featuring brand new underground music - all mixed live on 'Facebook Live' every Thursday. Ambient tracks, breakbeat, acapellas & soundbytes, laid back Ibiza grooves, house classics and some of the newest and deepest progressive & Melodic Techno tracks from producers around the world were featured. A massive and emotional thank you to everyone who joined, listened afterwards, messaged kind words and really understood that music brings us together. So, if you missed it, then just like the community did for all those weeks; find a spot in the house or garden, press play on any week and I'll do the work. I've got you.

‘Lost In Lockdown’ Week 8 - Sasha 25th Anniversary Essential Mix @ Que Club. In 1995, BBC Radio 1 and Cream put together their 'Live' tour with amazing line ups and aired them 'live' for the first time on the radio for listeners. On the Saturday 27th May, The ‘Grande Finale’ of the tour was at the legendary ‘Que Club’ in Birmingham and boasted a line up that featured the biggest Dj’s in the UK at that time. An all-night affair at a club that could hold thousands from 10pm-6am was a first of it’s kind and for the first time you could sit at home listening to the music and madness erupting. After Sasha & John Digweed’s 1994 Renaissance album had converted and gained so many more fans to the duos epic brand of House Music, 1995 was to take it to the next level. The advancements in the sound they started playing was to be an insight into the future of electronic music. Progressive House suddenly had a harder edge and pushed the boundaries of sound using technology far away from the traditional House music sound with piano and soulful vocals. The reason I have chosen to commemorate this mix is that it changed my outlook on House music. I have always enjoyed all genres of music but back then we didn’t have the amounts of genres and sub-genres enjoyed now. I knew I was hearing something very different. I recorded the whole broadcast from start to finish, swapping 90 min tapes in and out, barely containing my excitement for what I was hearing and capturing. The crowd noises, Tong’s voice bellowing out over the roar of the crowd announcing the DJ's – it was just amazing, literally AMAZING. Out of all the mixes, it was, of course, Sasha’s that caught my attention and engaged me more than all the other mixes. Having already seen him play this was the nucleus for a brand new Sasha obsession. To celebrate 25 years since Sasha played the mix live on air that Saturday evening (I still have the original tape, see pic) I’m going to play all the tracks he played* and hope to give us all the sense of nostalgia and wonderment I felt that night. Most of the tracks are recordings from my vinyl collection before I sold it all to a collector back in 2014. The mix itself is only around 80 mins so I’ll play some extra tracks from his other sets around the same time. For myself, 1995 was my favourite year of clubbing ever. The music, the DJ’s the energy at that time was explosive. Join me and let’s take the journey back together.

Week 3 - This week is a real deep dive into some tracks that ordinarily wouldn't go into the mix with each other. There are two classic ambient tracks from the beloved Global Underground early 007 & 009 CDs and some more subtle tracks from over the last 5 years that have found their way into my heart; like Gallago - Lost Signal & Heal Me by Roderiguez Jr, Dee Montero's Solace and right through to Sudbeat tracks, Matt Rowan, Alex O'Rion Remixes and Adana Twins - it's a classic session mix basically.

Mixed 'live' for my 42nd birthday, I wanted to create a feeling of nostalgia & mix a more ‘house-music’ style set of tracks put together for fun rather than a big serious soundscape like my usual fare. Lots of tracks are from years ago and the entire mix spans pretty much from 1991-2020. It’s not a retrospective of house music but I did want to include a few classics and include some good old hands in the air piano tracks that do it for me and capture that sense of care-free happiness from the early 1990s. I grew up listening to hardcore, jungle, intelligent drum and bass, house and then mainly progressive house – I always loved the different sounds being produced by each genre and I feel today the melting pot of electronic music has them all fused neatly together. I hope more than anything this mix brings a smile and that you as the listener can nod your head to a good few of these tracks and I take you back to your very own feelings of love and nostalgia. Enjoy. DJ
CD2, ‘Space’ is a full-on Science Fiction Progressive house mix. One of my all-time favourite intellects is Carl Sagan, with a voice so rich and deep, I felt it was perfect for this album. Sagan’s ‘Pale Blue Dot’ excerpt amongst other interview snippets accompanies you in flight. Watch out too for my own Stephen Hawking and Nasa samples layered under and over some of the stunning tracks I have compiled over the years from some well-known and little-known artists. I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback on this and Guest Mix. I sincerely hope you enjoy what I believe is a very unique and personal journey through my audio/visual soundscape.
CD1 ‘Earth’, layers Earths Hertz frequency to create instant calm and comfort for the listener. The Earth behaves like a gigantic electric circuit. Its electromagnetic field surrounds and protects all living things with a natural frequency pulsation of 7.83 hertz on average — the so-called “Schumann resonance,” named after physicist Dr. Winfried Otto Schumann, who predicted it mathematically in 1952. I hope you like it. Ethnic Prayer and ancient chants rub shoulders with the ’Voder’, Alan Watts and Carl Sagan whilst heavenly vocals fuse with crystal clear cinematic Sci-fi tracks in order to transport you from earth to space.
March's trip starts with the Matrix. As Covid19 has dominated the headlines and indeed our lives it feels like we are not in control of our own lives. Join me for 2 hours of Sci-Fi progressive house music that dives deep into the matrix, builds and soars. Go on take the right pill and see how far the rabbit hole goes.
February is a deep dive into the abyss of rich textured atmospheric progressive house. I want to entrance and hypnotise my listeners and take them through the emotional soundscapes of my thoughts. Hop on board, press play and let's go!
I began listening to house music at a very early age thanks to an older brother into the early Acid House Scene. As such my influences are varied but there’s always an ‘old skool’ sound that you’ll subtly hear coming through in my music. The ingredients of a good mix, for me, have never changed but you’ll never hear me playing track after track of obvious peak time tracks or ‘hits' of the moment that typify a trend. Instead, I look to hook listeners into warm grooves and hypnotic vibes that melt and flow into tracks without losing the overall thread of the journey I’m creating. I hope you have an unexpected trip into nostalgia as glide you through 120 mins of atmospheric house music. Peace & Love DJ
