Featuring nods to "I Have To Go Return Some Video Tapes", "Don't Forget: Lock The Doors" and BREATHE RADIO.



So this is something I wanted to do for a long, long time. With the release of their new single i figured it'd be about time to bunch up the most drance-y songs of Breathe Carolina and work out a mixtape to commemorate their development from screamo-electro to progressive EDM.


Tracks range back to 2011 when they released "Hell Is What You Make It", over to the very transitory record "Savages" to their final form of what they are doing now. Great songs also stem from collaborations with guys like Disco Fries and APEK, remixes done by Wideboys and remixes they did themselves of The Kin and ARCHIS.


I hoped for some older songs, but they just wouldn't fit in, so they only find respite in small cameos. Enjoy the new found BC, but don't pump it too loud in your car's stereo - I will guarantee for nothing!

One-twenty-eight. Such an innocuous number. Three mere digits, yet they comprise what must be my beat. If only for 2015.

128 BPM makes me jump uncontrollably,
128 BPM makes my grin,
128 BPM made my summer
and 128 BPM made this mixtape.

It was a mere coincidence finding out about the thread that goes through all the great songs I found in the past months, songs that bring such joy, that I felt inclined to get back to mixing once more.

The result I'm pretty proud of, as it has a better flow throughout the mix with a lot more cohesion and interplay between the 16 songs - this one feels less like a random assembly of disconnected songs and way more like a complete mix, one that has its own voice and each song complements every other.

It's been quite some time which only amounts to more higher quality songs. The selection process was a real bummer, as I had 64 songs in my short list.

But here are the 19 winners. The 19 best songs I found over the last 8 months. 19 songs, that summarize pretty good, what music I've been dancing to, singing to in the shower; 19 songs that make for high spirits all around. Plus, I snuck some cameos in to make up for the lack of space on the tape.


Beware, I am on a new tool here - I love it, as it gives me so much more breathing room and way more powerful techniques to input more of my own musical understanding. I am no longer contrained by the software I use. Yet, sometimes all this freedom went out of hands on some transitions.

The mix can be segmented into an ascending prelude, the very trance-pumpy chapter I, followed by the power-pop segment II with my favourite song "Pleas Don't Say", a joyous transition at the very heart of it, back to some up-beat chapter IV, going into a more relaxed part at #V and ending on a very, very relaxed note at the end.

OK - this is it.

This is the mixtape is for everyone, who loves someone weird, hates someoone dreadful, found the probably last bottle of Orbitz in their new flat's fridge, indulges in life's vices, is on their way to happiness, spends their existence on being indifferent, who has the most monotonous daily commute of all brightened up by this one person that's in it with you each morning and for everyone who just stepped into something wet with their freshly put-on socks.


The most elaborate mixing I have ever done. The most time ever spent on transitions, the most tracks (sometimes 5 per song), the most dwelling on its content and in the end the most fun so far.

sacPOP - incandescence: Proverbs for Paranoids

It was winter and it made for some great musical discoveries. Be it via awesome blogs like cavemansound and earmilk or hitting Berlin's clubs - great tunes all around me. Again - if you find any music to your liking, buy the artist's vinyls or tracks on amazon!


The facts that it'd been two months already and a lot of different genres accrued in my stash, made me go for a split this time. First downlaodable mix is the dirty-electro-house/dance/atari main-tape, that's more straight-forward this time.

Robert DeLong - Just Movement
Lane 8 - The Voice (Part 2)
Roosevelt - Soleil
Delphic - Atlas

The second mix - the so-called "Laid-back Rework" is mostly comprised of indie, pop and dance tracks and more suitable for the relaxing listener. Don't forget, that every mixtape is free to download and best served in cars and earplugs.


Yet again - support the artists, if you like their stuff - only if we show them, that they are creating marvellous joys for our ears, will they feel heard - shall they never stahp doing this! (Never hesitate to tell me, what you think of the mixes - !)

sacPOP - incandescence: The World Taekwondo Federation

This mixtape it is a bit more relaxed. Starting off with a grand remix of "I See A Darkness" by Acid Pauli followed up by even more electro-house and poppy disco-tunes like GOLDHOUSE and Porter Robinson to finally closing it off with some indie sounds by Asbjørn and Class Actress.


The mixtape can be downloaded in its full glory from zippyshare and there's even a tracklist. If you like any of the songs or artist, go buy their stuff at Discogs and amazon and visit their shows.


These people deserve some of our support - for all they are doing for us. Booya!

What better way of closing off a grand year with a remix that summons up the (positive) turmoil my life has been over the past 12 months. Experimenting with mixing (and even DJing) was just a small part of it. But a part that conjures lots of fun.


The mix was created as a present, so behold the random genre-jumps - it's all intentional. It can be downloaded via zippyshare, but support the artists, if you like any of their stuff! There's also a small booklet-file, if you want to craft a little slipcase for a CD.

This is where it all started: Txema opened up a new bar and was open for anything. Especially any music. So he pushed me to DJing at his bar. Something I have never done before. I had no equipment, no idea how this works and not even a clue what music would be suitable. It was at this time, that I got more and more into electro house and dubstep, without having any profound library to back it up. So I created one. Came up with a name. Asked Matze (Weltenzerstörer der Schreckliche) to tag along for visuals.

And then, we partied.
