RETRO PODCAST: ABBAMIX

It may be a strange for connection, but if it wasn’t for ABBA I may have never got into DJING. My love of ABBA fuelled my love for music and my passion to do more with it. Being an Australian, ABBA ABBAMIX_600PXis part of our countries history. It was us who went crazy for them when the rest of the world forgot them after WATERLOO. It was a country where 1 in 3 families had an ABBA album and at one time 5 out of 10 tracks in the top 10 were ABBA. Fernando spent 16 weeks at number one. Ever since they have been a favourite on my iphone on the beach, when I am doing housework, to make me feel happy if I am down…

After hearing a mixcloud podcast by another DJ who sourced various ABBA remixes, most of them by fans…I thought I too would like to pay tribute to ABBA on this podcast. ABBAMIX is 100% ABBA…no cover versions, except maybe one by Peter K with (Lay All Your) Love On Me. This was a house music take on ABBA’s ‘club tune’. The mix contains ABBA original recordings interspersed with various ‘fan-remixes’ and include a slightly messy but rather impressive version of the Visitors & a 2006 house remix of Waterloo in a speed garage style. Perhaps one of the most important additions to this mix is the DMC MEGA MIX. Professionally done, this blends/cuts ABBA mixes together. Throughout the ABBAMIX you will blends, fast cuts, cut and paste, beat mixing and filters to create one continuos ABBAMIX. Party, listen or sing along…my aim was to offer the beloved ABBA in a different way not to distract from the genius of ABBA but to create a new twist. Over 1 hour of tunes, 12 distinct tracks covering 20 ABBA tunes in various ways. Mixing ABBA is not easy. Beats drift, they weren’t made to be beat mixed…but at least I tried, and here it is.
