Christmas with the Halifax Classics, 2015

I just discovered the recording of Ian Allen and I playing at the Halifax Classics Christmas event a couple months ago.  I should have put this online immediately after the event, but I guess it slipped my mind, and now I'm having a hard time piecing together the track listings.  This event was all about the house music.

All of the tracks that we played at this show were ones that I edited beforehand, so a lot of them were mashups between two different tracks simultaneously, along with a number of other classic house samples thrown in.  We played this set on a pair of CDJ-2000's.


This mix can be downloaded as part of an archive of all 28 of DJ Bolivia's available recordings of live shows, from the following Google Drive link:


The recordings are compressed as a RAR archive, which can be opened natively in Windows.  If you're using a Mac, you can use a free utility to open the RAR (popular examples are "The Unarchiver" and the "UnRarX" app).  The password to open the archive is simply 'bolivia' and the size of the download is 5.6 gigabytes.  If you have problems downloading this archive from the above Google Drive link, you can email DJ Bolivia at djbolivia@gmail.com for an alternate download link.

Thanks for your interest in these old historical mixes!


As I said, a number of these tracks were mashed up beforehand, so they may not quite be in perfect order, although I tried to piece together the correct order in which they appeared.  I didn't mention the dozen-odd extra tracks which I sampled or threw in over the top of the main programming.

      Alex Augello - Disco Fruit (Original Mix)
      Afrika Bambaataa - Funky Heroes (Original Orezero Remix)
      Rafha Madrid - Crazy Desire (Original Mix)
      Boris Dlugosch - Keep Pushin' (Purple Disco Maschine Vox Mix)
      Jerome Robins, MC Flipside, & Crazibiza - Like That (Slideback Your House Edit)
      Carol Jiani - Move Your Body (Original Mix)
      Sebastian Roter - Work Me (Roter & Lewis Mix)
      PME - It's Alright (Paperboy & Mike Even Club Mix)
      Garret & Ojelay - Love You Better (Original Mix)
      DJ Diogenes - Now (Original Mix)
      Jason Rivas & Asely Frankin - Bambadam (JR & Funkenhooker Back From Ibiza)
      Crazibiza - Back2House (Original Mix)
      Jay Frog & Dekoze - Uh Huh (Original Mix)
      Mike Newman & The Viron - My Love (Original Mix)
      Angelo Ferreri - Gimme Gimme (Original Mix)
      Crazibiza - My Lips (Original Mix)
      Slideback - Sick Of You (Original Mix)
      Rick Marshall - Fever (Rich B Enriched Dub Mix)
      Hoxton Whores & HXNT - Power (Original Mix)
      DJ Hightech & Khalisa Adila - Fly (Original Mix)
      Ivan Pica - Freak (eSquire Groove Mix)


I hope you enjoy it.  The mixing wasn't always the tightest, considering that it was on CD players instead of Ableton, but considering that we had some sound problems with one of the speakers and monitor, I'm pretty happy with the way this sounded.  This event is, without a doubt, my favorite event of the year ...
