It’s a new year, so it’s time to give my monthly mix a FRESH new look.

FRESH Sessions will feature not just my own mixes each month; I also plan on collaborating more with other local artists. I’ve always craved some type of outlet to distribute my music here in the Coachella Valley—my home. I always wondered how to get my music out to people—a difficult task for many artists. Well, FRESH Sessions will provide an outlet for such musicians and artists. For you, our readers/listeners, FRESH Sessions will allow you to discover new music while learning about the talent we have in the valley.

This month’s mix is about feeling good! What better way to start the new year than with a mix of uplifting and soulful tracks that can turn your day around? These aren’t your typical dance tracks … they’re deeper! Wonder what that means? Give it a listen, and find out for yourself.

Also: I’m offering Independent listeners a free download of my new single! Head to soundcloud.com/allnightshoes/need-u-dub to get it.

Enjoy!

  • Just Kiddin, “Time, Space and Honey”
  • Bit Funk, “Soul Satisfaction” (Club Mix)
  • Mitzi, “Falling”
  • The Swiss, “Elouisa” (Original Mix)
  • Edwin Van Cleef, “Two as One”
  • Azari and III, “Lost in Time” (Blende Remix)
  • All Night Shoes, “Need U” (Dub Mix)
  • Anna Lunoe, “Up and Down”

Another month, another FRESH Mix!

This is the third edition of the FRESH Mix—and, of course, the last of 2013. I want thank everyone who has been following the FRESH Mix. I am passionate about sharing the music I love with people. I also want to thank the Coachella Valley Independent for being brave enough to host this feature!

Ok, that's enough. Let's get to the music!

This month’s FRESH Mix is focused on a deeper style of music. Not all electronic music features massive synthesizer lines and giant bass kicks. In fact, some has a sound that can best be described as "chilled out." I personally enjoy deep house, because it can easily blend with other styles, such as my favorite—disco!

The final track is a remix from local Coachella Valley DJ/producer A_Onceler, aka 20-year-old Aaron Rodea. While he's still finding his style, Aaron has already done a handful of mixes that show off his skills. I asked him to remix my track "Like This" for my debut album, Slow Emotion, and he did not disappoint.

I look forward to rocking out with you all in 2014! Thank you—and as always, the best is yet to come.

  • Bit Funk, “It Ain’t Easy”
  • Quinten 909 and Rob Black, “No One Like You”

  • Duke Dumont featuring A*M*E, “Need U (100%)” (Amtrac Remix)
  • All Night Shoes, “Like This” (A_Onceler Remix)

It’s no secret: Disco is back! A genre long mocked has returned with a new face.

I have been a fan of disco since I was a kid. The Bee Gees, Electric Light Orchestra, Chic—I could go on and on. These acts were the top ticket in town for a good part of the ’70s and early ’80s. Of course, some of us may remember a night when a certain baseball team burned disco records, calling it the death of disco.

Fast forward to 2013, and disco has returned to Top 40 radio via acts including Bruno Mars and Daft Punk. The Coachella Valley fell into “disco fever” this year with Splash House, a disco- and dance-themed pool-party festival.

This month’s FRESH Mix is dedicated to disco with some familiar tracks, some new ones, and some you’ve probably never heard. Use this mix at your next house party—and turn up the heat!

Also, don’t forget to catch my “Cosmic Disco” dance party hosted at Clinic Bar and Lounge in Palm Springs on the second Saturday of each month!

Welcome to the first FRESH Monthly Mix with All Night Shoes!

FRESH is a live mix of music curated by me, All Night Shoes, aka Alex Harrington. Each month, I will be featuring the best music in the dance/indie/electronic scene—both locally and globally.

I draw influence from artists all over the world, and discover amazing music daily. Being a DJ and producer, I find that sharing great music is rewarding and exciting. My goal in the months to come is to introduce you to all kinds of new artists and new sounds.

This month’s theme is “Summer After-Party.” The hottest season is coming to the end, and the tracks I’ve featured are perfect for chilling out with friends—or getting close to someone you love. I enjoy tracks that take me for a ride, and feel like a journey. I’ve packed this mix with big beats, deep vibes and just enough funk to make you want to dance.

You can hear all these tracks and more when I play the Coachella Valley Independent Release Party, hosted at Clinic Bar and Lounge, on Wednesday, Oct. 16! Stay FRESH and enjoy!
