Steven Sacks – Live at Silk

In In The Mix by Steven SacksLeave a Comment

This one takes me back. It’s from my early days after I started playing out regularly. This was a live recording from a party in Atlanta at The Masquerade called Silk. It was recorded onto a cassette tape recorder (remember those!?) I brought to the club. This 16-year-old cassette recording has been transferred to digital, cleaned up (as much as possible) and mastered.

The first half is deep and tribal and the second half goes into funky Chicago house. I was still developing my aggressive and long mixing style during this time so it’s a little loose in places. This tape, along with my first cassette tape release Cement Galoshes (which is currently being mastered, as well, and coming soon!), got in the hands of a big promoter in the Midwest and helped take my DJ career to the next level.

I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane.

Steven Sacks – Live At Lush

In In The Mix by Steven SacksLeave a Comment

Lush was a late-night party in Atlanta, GA many years ago that started at 3am on Saturday night/Sunday morning. It was always jam-packed with house music lovers until at least 6am. I had the honor of playing for them twice, and this set was recorded live at my second appearance. Since the place was small and the dj booth was right on the dancefloor, you can hear people (and me) screaming through the needles, which I love.

This was also the night I met fellow dj Kevin O. He had a live singer performing with him during his set right before mine, so at the beginning of the mix, as we were swapping out connections, you can hear the crowd through her mic, and her unplanned saying “yeah!” right before I started my first record was serendipitous to say the least and really sets this mix apart.

The only bummer was the sound system was rigged for mono so the recording is in mono, not stereo. However, I was so happy with it, I decided to release it anyway. To this day, it’s one of my favorite sets.

Steven Sacks – The Deep Set

A studio mix made at the request of a fan who had been asking me passionately for a deep house set. This is the full length version (the CD was just 74 minutes). It’s deep and funky and the first 40 minutes makes it one of my most favorite recordings.

Steven Sacks – Live At Obscured

This set was recorded at an amazing party in the summer of 2000. It was one of those magical sets where everything came together and I always wished it had been recorded. For a decade, I had no idea that this set had been recorded until recently when the promoter got in touch with me and told me he had a mini disc recorder going and sent me the first 74 minutes of the set. Hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed playing it!

Steven Sacks – Doin It On 3

In In The Mix by Steven SacksLeave a Comment

A 3 turntable mix recorded in the studio. There’s a bit of a story behind this mix.

One of my best friends, Shane, loved my Live In Detroit mix and then Mark Grant (one of my all-time favorite DJ/producers) came out with his Sound Design v2 mix on Om records and Shane said that Live In Detroit had been usurped. Inspired by Mark’s set and Shane’s challenge, I recorded this set.

With really long 3 turntable mixes, the end result is an interesting experiment for me, and many people have said they enjoyed it. Oh, and Shane did too, but he said Mark Grant’s mix was still his favorite since it came first. Heh.

Steven Sacks – Live In Detroit

This set was recorded at a rave at Four Bears Water Park in Utica, Michigan, which is just outside of Detroit. This is the first 74 minutes of the set and is a San Francisco chuggy mix. Next to Live at Lush, this is my best-selling mix cd, and the party was a blast! This mix also features two of my absolute most favorite house tracks of all time, Fran├žois K’s remix of “Tout Est Bleu” and Global Communication’s “The Way”.

Steven Sacks – Live in Nantucket

In In The Mix by Steven SacksLeave a Comment

This mix is my ode to my favorite DJs of all time, Derrick Carter. This set was recorded at a little club on Nantucket called The Chicken Box. Only the first 45 minutes or so made it because the recording started clipping when I had to crank up the output and forgot to compensate on the recorder. Still, it’s a fun Chicago mix and was worth sharing even in abbreviated form. Enjoy!
