We rounded off 2019 with a bumper edition of the Issue, jam packed with everything you’ll need for the festive season! Richard Lee takes a closer look at what’s in store…
1. Chart Hits: Pop Dance – We are constantly asked by our DJ members to create a monthly chart mix that includes 5 / 6 big tunes, played in full & mixed smoothly…so here you go! Latest offerings from Sam Feldt feat. RANI, Regard, Jax Jones & Ella Henderson, Meduza x Becky x Goodboys & Nathan Dawe feat. Jaykaye in a 15 minute mix.
2. The DJs: The Hits pt.2 – The first mix in this range was really well received so it made sense to quickly follow it up. This time we have used tracks from DJ / Producers including Calvin Harris, Fatboy Slim, Chemical Brothers, Run DMC vs. Jason Nevins & Benny Benassi presents the Bizz. Creative production techniques & solid track selections make this a must-play mix.
3. Triple Tracker: Pop Goes Christmas – The festive season is a time when DJs can really fill their boots with work and Mastermix have loaded Issue 402 with a selection of festive mixes including this one that features a special version of the party classic ‘Macarena’ teamed up with tracks from fun. & Rod Stewart feat. Cee-Lo Green to create a delightful 3-track mix that offers a unique twist on a party favourite.
4. Let’s Have A Christmas Party – We really have held nothing back in this mix…it’s full-on Christmas party! Kicking off with Elton’s 70s smash hit the mix quickly works it’s way through festive floorfillers from Slade, Wizzard, Mariah Carey & Shakin’ Stevens as well as an absolute belter from the sublime Brian Setzer Orchestra…”It’s Christmas!”
5. After Dark: Chilled Christmas – End of night mix featuring a selection of tracks that have been engineered in bpm order from fastest (111) to slowest (85) to deliver a mix that can be played after your main party set and offer a bonus set to your guests as they leave the venue or for those guests who want a little extra without distracting from the main party set.
1. The DJs Set: 90s Bangers – This mix feature is produced from the song selections sent in by our DJ members via the link on the official Mastermix website. Each mix is 15 minutes long and includes tracks from a chosen genre / era that work for the DJ who submitted them to us. We take those track choices and create a unique mix for other DJs to play out to their guests. This mix features 90s classics from Stretch & Vern, Blockster, Baby Bumps, Bamboo & Mirrorball and was compiled by DJ Mark Foster.
2. Mash Up: Whitney vs. Sigala (I Wanna Dance For Love) – Mastermix are renowned for their innovative mash ups and we have been requested to include more of them on our monthly Issue. We kick off a new selection of mash ups with this gem from producer Paul Chambers who combines mobile DJ floorfillers from Whitney Houston (I Wanna Dance With Somebody) & Sigala (Came Here For Love) to create this exclusive mix that we know you are going to love playing.
3. DJ Playlist: Funky New Year – These mixes are created by DJs for DJs and feature a range of classic tracks that have been mixed in a way that gives them a live feel but with studio quality production. This mix includes tracks from Michael Jackson, Mark Ronson, Bee Gees, Wild Cherry & Four Seasons.
4. DJ Playlist: Sing-A-Long – Perfect mix for the festive season and beyond. This one starts with the 80s soft rock classic ‘Africa’ and includes hits from Take That, Kaiser Chiefs, Wheatus, Jackson 5, DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, Busted, Dolly Parton, Backstreet Boys & Dexys Midnight Runners. Each track is a proven sing-a-long anthem and the whole mix works perfectly for any part crowd. Press play and let your audience do the rest!
5. New Year Dance Party – We wanted to create a New Years Eve utility mix but didn’t want to go down the same path as previous mixes…and we think we’ve come up with an absolute cracker! The mix takes on a cool-dance vibe featuring smash hits from MK, Jess Glynne, Shawn Mendes & Sigala x Becky Hill before cleverly moving into the iconic Big Ben Chimes complete with 10-0 countdown & ‘Happy New Year’ effects. The mix picks up the tempo again to bring in the New Year with tracks from David Guetta feat. Kelly Rowland, Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris & the ever-popular ‘Party Rock Anthem’ by LMFAO.
