Stitch Liveshow – Episode 5 – Hip House

Follow the stitch liveshows on twitter:

Git-git-git git-busy. Haha most of you “youngsters” might never heard before, but Hip House was a combination between house and hiphop. It topped the charts between 1988 and 1991 with various hits made by Tyree Cooper and Fast Eddy.

For this mix i selected some rare/great hip house tracks from between 1989 and 1991, which even I never heard before. As you know, my livemixes are not practiced before, so i was amazed at how great some tunes are.

Once it starts rolling its unstoppable. Just give it a try, you won’t be disappointed; it’s groovy as hell. I’m still in a rush! 🙂

Also my new Ms Pinky vinyls shipped in, and they mix more solid than finalscratch2. Check out the picture for a “splatter matter” disc; a work of art.

Stitch Liveshow – Episode 3 – Old School

Image Copyright Disney, the disney-dj stitch is no more, so i took some liberty here...Follow the stitch liveshows on twitter:

A selection of the finest tracks from “Techno Trance”, a Dutch compilation CD from the 90’s. In contrast to previous mixes, this one is pretty good and mixed pretty fast. I played 25 songs in about 45 minutes, which is nice for this genre. Also mixed without removing the headphones from my head while continuously on the edge.

Actually I had to mix this one twice; forgot to punch in the record button the first time. Happens. Anyway; imperfection and improvisation is part of the game. Enjoy this one.

If you’ve got suggestions for next weeks mix, let me know. Playing different genre/style every week.

Stitch Liveshow – Episode 1

Image Copyright Disney, the disney-dj stitch is no more, so i took some liberty here...

To celebrate the glorious upgrade of my dj skills, I started the Stitch Liveshow; A (bi-)weekly show that will contain about one hour of music. This first episode contains my favorite Drum & Bass releases from past weeks. Since the tracks are selected according to my likings, its actually Drum & Bass & Melodies. Enjoy the great tracks, and the decent mixing. I actually felt the vibe halfway of the mix… can’t wait for the new one! Enjoy!

Total playing time: 1.18.14 (and yes, it even fits on cd!)

Stitch – NLC Summer Mix 3

This is something I mixed in 2003, my third mix ever. See below for the story and playlist. Enjoy.


In 2003 I started practicing with digital mixing. Since I didn’t know that there where specific apps like Acid and Logic I used Amadeus II to do the work. This app is similar to Cooledit/Audacity. It is only possible to perform destructive audio editing; thus manipulating sound directly. Pitching songs to the right tempo was a pain; I developed a formula to perform quicker beat-matching but still it would take some time to get it right. Transitions where build by copy-paste tracks over each other, sometimes with some fade-ins and fade-outs. Although mixing is possible, it is not possible to go back and change parts of the mix. With an undo space of 30 edits the rule was simple; once pasted, cannot change it.

It might sound outdated; the computer used for mixing was an iMac DV 400 mhz, with a 13 gigabyte harddrive. The tracks where taken from my CD collection, specifically from the Turn up the Bass cd’s. To speed up working the audio was in aiff, but the resulting mp3 was of low quality. As you might notice, all tracks have a nice party atmosphere; but it’s a poorly built set. That being said; its a fairly decent mix and if you’re a fan of hiphouse and the sounds from the good old days you’ll probably appreciate it.

Since editing and mixing took so long, the mix was never finished.


  1. Twin Hype – Do It To The Crowd
  2. D-Shake – Yaaah
  3. Queen Latifah – Come Into My House (Zanzibar Mix)
  4. 2 Static – Boy I’ll House Ya
  5. Mister Mixi & Skinny Scotty – I Can Handle It
  6. Icy D. & Doc Daze – Get On Up And Dance
  7. Kraze – Let’s Play House
  8. Fax Yourself – Walking on sunshine ’89
  9. Steve “Silk” Hurley – Work It Out
  10. Nikki – Mucho Macho
  11. Tony Scott – Get Into It

Thanks to Discogs for the covers in the video.

In 2003 I started practicing with digital mixing. In those days i didn’t knew about software like Acid and Logic. This was the third mix I made, and was mixed using Amadeus II; a destructive audio editing app for manipulating sound directly. The songs where pitched manually by a formula for manually pitching up/down songs, fitting them to the 4-bar speed of the target mix. I created my own formula for doing this, but still it would take some time to get it right. The tracks are copy-pasted over eachother, with a limited undo space of 30 edits; once pasted, you cannot change it.
The computer used for mixing was an iMac DV 400 mhz, with a 13 gigabyte harddrive. The tracks where taken from the Turn up the Bass series. There is not much set-building and most of it is mixed using copy-paste transitions. If you’re a fan of hiphouse and the sounds from the good old days you’ll probably can appreciate this mix.
Before you start to wonder; the mix was never finished due to the time it took to mix things together.

Thunderbirds Trip

On 14-08-2009 Aequitas and I held the Super Awesome Cartoon Quizz 2009 at har2009.

We put a lot of time in creating and re-arranging content for the quizz. One of the jewels is the Thunderbirds Trip.

This video was made in a few hours (max 2) and contains 5 pictures and 3 audio tracks mashed up into a tune.

More on the quizz will follow when all har2009 media is available.

Total playing time: 1:10

Thanks to: Aequitas, thunderbirds wallpapers, The beatsquad, iMovie 09 (or 08), Apple (workflows++), Sony Acid Pro 7.  No thanks to Parallels Desktop, v4 was a bad update.
