Congrats on #250..been listening for almost three years. Live down in Fort Lauderdale and groove every Tuesday night to your show. I listen to classic house #100 and #150 on a daily basis. Can't wait to be taken back to the old school sound of those days.

Congrats Mate on 5 years, and 250 of the best Deep House Radio shows ever. I have been listening to you on XM80 for as long as I can remember, your Tuesday morning show would set the tone for my day with the hour long drive I used to have to endure.

I still jam out to your 3rd Street Session Mixes, your music is like a tall glass of water in the middle of POP HELL ;)

Congrats again Lars, Here's to another 250 DSoH Shows!!

congrats on your anniversary. Ihave been listening to you for the last four years and i can never get enough. I appreciate what you bring to the table. I am a old househead from philly and can never find any flavor in North Florida. I always have XM, the internet and the downloads to keep me going. Thank you and keep it coming.

Thank You for DSoH! It just gets better and better every session. #250 is so hot!!! Please do another Classic House Special next week. Call it #250 Revisited or After Hours or something. Call it anything but do another Classic session. Ending with Barbara Tucker and Eddie Amador is not fair. LOL! I was on my second wind at this point. So good it hurt! :woohoo:

Congratulations on 250 lars.

First got into deep house late 87 and then the whole genre seemed
to disappear of the face of the earth for many years.
You are now one of the pioneers of modern day deep house music.
Heres to another 250.

Congratulations on the 250 Lars!

I've been listening since show #205 and have loved every minute of your show. I hadn't long been into Deep House until I found your show, now it is my favourite genre and practically all I listen to. You've led me to search for other DJs and Mixes too which I know I wouldn't have done if I hadn't wanted even more from this awesome genre.

Look forward to downloading 250 now and listening to what you've got in store.

Also, many congrats on the success of Deeper Shades Recordings, all of your releases so far have been outstanding, my favourite being "I Miss the Things".

Roll on show #300! :D

Congrats Lars... Everyone here has already said exactly what I'm thinking but I'm leaving feedback nonetheless. Great great shows so far.... Thanks for bringing us all this music from all over the world every week --there's a lot of great music out there and I'm glad you bring it to us consistently every week (even when you're sick)!

Most importantly, keep them coming!
Here's to 250 more.

  • PGZmedia created a new topic ' Balance 026 by Hernan Cattaneo #1 Electronica incl' in the forum.
    1 hour 30 minutes ago


    ★ “I started asking some producer friends to make special versions of some of their tracks for the albums, and I’ve been very pleased with the results. I really like the way those tracks interact with the others and in many cases, the new downtempo mixes are even better than the original ones.”! Hernan Cattaneo

    It has to be said that Hernan Cattaneo has mixed one of the Progressive-House masterpiece of all time at most, not only because his undeniable skills, but because a tight 2xCD track-listing featuring quite exclusive and outstanding pearls produced by some close friends around the world, and this is the case of Andy Arias' Modjo remix from Progrezo Records.

    Some seek a permanent state of hype, while others like Hernan Cattaneo find liberation in being freed from the shackles of such intense scrutiny. The Argentine’s refreshing approach to DJ’ing and making music has ensured that over a decade on from the time he exploded into the public consciousness, he’s as engrossing a force as ever. His contemporary sound continues his love of rich melody and atmospheric textures, but draws on possibly a wider palette of producers and styles than ever.

    “It’s been GREAT years for melodies and thankfully even German techno producers are not afraid to use them anymore” he says. “As a result, I think the music now is the best since the early 2000s. I think the Israeli producers are the most interesting ones, from established producers like Guy Gerber and Guy J to newer people like Chaim or Guy Mantzur, Hakimonu, Sahar Z…”

    With the renewed interest in what some might call ‘progressive’ styles – Innervisions, Life & Death et al – the time for him to present his enduring sound to the world through this stunning Balance compilation couldn’t be better timed.

    Disc 1 harks back to the golden age of downtempo music in the 1990s, evoking classic Cafe Del Mar andNorthern Exposure mixes with its sumptuous selection of languid soundscapes. It’s a style that has sadly slipped from the spotlight, coinciding with the death of the chill-out room and the diminished ‘Balearic’ focus of Ibiza in recent years – meaning that Cattaneo’s choice of direction feels all the more special as a result. Indeed, he reaches back to 1999 for the low-slung groove of Boards Of Canada’s opener, before moving into a slew of exclusives and reworked versions of some of his favourite tracks from recent DJ sets to suit the chuggier tempo.

    It makes for a highly refreshing approach. The mesmerising new versions give these ethereal dancefloor tracks stunning new context and life – like Chaim’s hypnotic Slow Dance Mix of Blue Shadow - while haunting vocal tracks like Weval’s Out Of The Game provide contrast to the glistening arps and top lines of Mano Le Tough and John Tejada, and a smattering of classics dear to Cattaneo’s heart, such as Gui Boratto’s Half Life. As the mix moves towards its conclusion, the energy and tempo nudge their way towards the clubbier climes of the second disc, culminating in a stunning rework of Guy J’s twinkling Dizzy Moments.

    Both mixes are littered with exclusive new productions from Cattaneo and his production partners Soundexile, infusing the mix with an even higher level of his musical DNA and boldly demonstrating what a force he continues to be in the studio. The driving bass of their own Into The Edge propels Disc 2 into life before we plunge into the deeper climbs that he’s so renowned for. More exclusives abound from the duo and others alike, a gently euphoric warmth coming over the mix through their own Parallax and Fugazzi, continuing into driving reworks of Guy J and James Teej as we hit the sweet spot of the mix. New material from Guy Mantzur powers us through towards the finale, the subdued beauty of Cattaneo and Soundexile’s Lotusrounding the compilation off with finesse after a rousing crescendo.

    Cattaneo has constructed a truly incredible chapter of the Balance Series, beautifully sequenced and mixed and packed full of stunning new material that can’t be heard anywhere else. Such attention to detail and quality should come as no surprise from one of the true masters of the game.

    I’m still playing the same as I’ve always done, and that is melodic and deep music – never too hard or fast. I’ve been into DJ’ing all my life and I always put personality as number 1 and crucial for any DJ, so I’ve never been into musical trends. – Hernan Cattaneo
