Chart positions

Time for a set with no rules!! No rules on genre / BPM / new / old / underground / mainstream etc etc ... Just good music ... This is a completely random and eclectic selection of tunes, from a multitude of genres ... I recorded this session a while back, and wasn't planning to upload it ... but recently I changed my mind and thought, why not ... People may enjoy it, and it's very different from anything I've posted up to this point! ... Plenty of twists and turns throughout the journey to keep you guessing ... Something different from the usual house sessions anyway. Thank you to those of you who take the time to listen. Your time is appreciated. Cheers! 🎧

Interesting, the perfect set for when you don't know what to listen and want to be surprised, good job.

Steve James

Thank you for having a listen Dani!! ... I think you're right. This is the kind of set to put on when you're not quite sure what to listen to, and feeling open minded!! ... I'm glad you enjoyed the surprises!! Have a great week my friend! Gracias! 😎🎧🎵

Btw, musically I've always lived a double life, DJing electronic music, and listening to Indie and pop. You've given me the motivation to upload my non-electronic influences. Thanks for bringing it to mind and watch out for the upload in the coming weeks.

Steve James

Yeah I had a fair idea your musical tastes are very broad ... I remember when I caught a livestream of yours, I saw a guitar hanging on the wall, so I know you're into guitar bands as well as electronic music ... I think quite a few DJ's are into different genres outside of electronic music, which is a good thing ... I'm glad my set has inspired you to upload a session of non-electronic music ... I am now very intrigued to hear the music you will include in that set, so I will keep my eyes peeled!!!! ... I remember your livestream also had a bit of everything ... some disco, breakbeat, house, old school speed garage ... it's always more exciting when you don't know what's coming next!! ... Thanks again for tuning in mate, and I'll be looking out for that new upload! Cheers! 😎🎧🎵

Musics like pizza. It comes with all sorts of toppings. Some work, some don't. To be honest I picked the anchovies out of this one. But I did like the extra topping of cheese, mushies and chilli flakes. That's what I Iike about your uploads James, there's always something there for everyone ... dine in, take away and delivered all you can eat pizza. Thanks mate.

Steve James

Hi Jaysen ... Thanks for dropping by and taking time out to have a listen! ... I very much agree with your pizza analogy. Sometimes it's nice to try different things. Of course there's never any guarantee that such experimentation will please everybody, but at the same time, it's not good to stick to the same thing over and over again ... It can become repetitive ... I enjoyed putting this set together more than any other set I've done so far ... It's a bit messy in places, but having listened back to it, I like the fact it isn't formulaic ... no set genre / tempo ... no rule that says every track must be mixed together seamlessly ... just playing music in a "freestyle" fashion ... It was quite refreshing to record this set after doing so many house sessions! ... And there was something for everyone ... I'm very happy you enjoyed the journey! 😎🎧🎵

I love it! It must have been a nightmare to mix. I don't really care about genres to be honest, so am open to listening to anything. I'd love to make something similar but all of my random pop music is at questionable bit rates! 😪 This set has something for everyone! 😎 Handled expertly too..

Steve James

Thanks mate! Glad you enjoyed this random and bizarre blend of multiple genres! 😂😂 ... It was definitely more challenging to mix than a standard house set, but in all honesty I relish a challenge ... As much as I love deep and soulful house, my musical tastes go way beyond the realms of house music ... I guess this was just a tiny snapshot of some of the other music I enjoy, besides house ... It's good to be open to different genres ... keeps things fresh and interesting ... Would love to hear you do a set similar to this ... you've already got Shirley Bassey on vinyl ... that's a good place to start! ... Anyway, thanks again for tuning in mate, and I'm glad you enjoyed the journey!! ... You're probably right ... this set has something for everyone! ... Have a great weekend! 😎🎧🎵

Shinsuke Ise

Nice set!! Thank you for letting me know your new mix.

Steve James

You're welcome Shinsuke!! ... Thank you for taking the time to have a listen, and I'm glad you enjoyed it!! ... Have a great week! Arigato gozaimasu! 😎🎧🎵

Great selection of songs here! I especially loved hearing "The Fly" by U2, one of the many great songs from their "Achtung Baby" album and a favorite of mine, also loved hearing "Streets Of Philadelphia" by Bruce Springsteen as well as "Do It Again" by Steely Dan and "She's Not There" by Santana! Now those are some classic jams! Thank you Steve for sharing this amazing variety of music, great way to change it up! They say that change is always good! Have a great day and week and stay strong, safe and blessed :)!

Steve James

Thank you Musik King! ... I appreciate you taking the time to have a listen, and glad you enjoyed it!! ... "The Fly" was one of my favourite U2 tracks as well ... "Streets Of Philadelphia" was another classic, and also "Do It Again" and "She's Not There" ... It's nice to dig out some of these old tunes and put them back in the spotlight again ... I'm glad you enjoyed the variety of genres in this set ... As they say, variety is the spice of life!! ... Have a great week, and stay safe. Cheers! 😎🎧🎵

2nd listen this morning. Fantastic Steve! Won’t pick out individual tracks as they are all great - where else can you hear King Tubby and Dire Straights in the same set?! Looking forward to the next “no rules” session already! Have a good day bro!🙏💯🔥🎵

Steve James

Cheers Shep! ... Yeah it was a long set, so no need to list all the tracks! 😂😂 ... Pet Shop Boys, Mobb Deep, King Tubby and Dire Straits all in the same set 😅 ... Having listened back to it, even I was surprised how random I went on this one!!! Glad you enjoyed it mate, and there will be another one at some point in the future ... Enjoy the rest of your weekend bro! 😎🎧🎵

DJ Falcustone

... Just good music ... , totally agree with you, great work mate

Steve James

Cheers mate! ... Yeah sometimes it's nice to just play music without constantly worrying about what "fits" into a set ... This was about as random as it gets, but I enjoyed making it anyway! ... Thanks for tuning in mate, and enjoy the rest of your weekend! 😎🎧🎵
