Crockett’s Theme – DJ Analytic Edit

I was a big fan of Miami Vice growing up, watching it became a bit of a ritual every Friday night.  There’s some great songs featured in the series, Phil Collins – In the Air Tonight was in the Pilot, Smuggler’s Blues, and the theme by Jan Hammer.  I read an interview with the show’s creator, Michael Mann, and he talked about making the show more like a music video, where the focus was visuals and sound versus plot.  I put Crockett’s Theme on my recent mix Make You Feel and really loved the sound so did an edit of it.  I added a heavier bassline to liven things up, hope you enjoy!

So Slide Over Here …

Four really common words, “So slide over here” … Flipping channels, I saw INXS : Never Tear Us Apart on Showtime.  I always liked their music, I remember first hearing them on the song from the Lost Boys soundtrack (although in hindsight, I probably heard “What You Need” quite a bit on the radio around that time).  By the time Kick came out in 1987, I had INXS written on my English notebook.  I put a few songs on recent mixes, Need You Tonight was on my first demo, Guns In the Sky on my first lounge mix, and Not Enough Time on another. The “mini series” (two parts of about 1.5 hours) is the story of the band’s beginnings and rise to fame until Michael Hutchence’s death in 1997: The concert at Wembley seemed like the pinnacle, loved the opening of Guns in the Sky, a long drum solo and then that big guitar riff: For being a long time fan, the story of the band was a surprise, playing in pubs to audiences for 10 people in the late 70s and taking off from there, as well as the dynamic between the members, watching it made me think of all the…
