2000/02/04 Armin van Buuren Communication
About the original version: The minimix of this week is an energetic track by the dutch producer Armin van Buuren. The track is called "Communication" and the original production is a powerful trance mix with great melody lines. Several minutes in to the track while you are already enjoying the groove and piano melodies, it turn out the track hasn't really started yet, as the best is still to come. A brilliant arpeggiating sequence emerges building up to the perfect climax, keeping you there for some time and coming back for a second treat towards the end. The track was originally recorded by Armin on April 4th 1999. (Ben Liebrand)
About the minimix version: The minimix is in electro style with the sounds of the famous roland 808 drummachine. It builds up into a classic electro groove with bassdrumms in different tunings, and a 'Shannon' style bassline coming from the minimoog. All drums are programmed in the Akai MPC-60 providing a rock-steady rhythm for the track, including a 32 bar break. Parts from the original version are sampled into the S-3000, and a Yamaha FSR1 is providing subtle rhytmic additions. The mix was recorded into the Akai DD1500 where the vocoder voices are added to the mix. The vocoder speaks of different forms of communication in 4 different languages. English, German, French and Spanish.

Especially the german vocoder voices give the mix a true 'Kraftwerk' feel. (Ben Liebrand)
2000/02/11 Ben Liebrand ft. The Gibson Brothers Music & Passion (Clubmix)
About the original version: This track is inspired by Barry Manilow's Copa Cabana. In order to create this track, only a few vocal lines were used. As the original version did not feature an acappella, these vocal lines needed to be re-recorded. The organ-line was inspired by Morel's grooves. (Ben Liebrand)
About the minimix version: The minimix is disco/club style featuring short guitar riffs and filtered vocal lines. Only a couple of vocal lines where recorded, as most of the track should have a club-style instrumental feel. The vocals where then sampled into the akai s3000, and filtered using the s3000's internal filters. The bassline comes from the Minimoog, a classic amongst synthesizers and still one of the best synths to generate low warm bass sounds. This minimix will be featured as an extra track on the CD single of Ben Liebrand : Music & Passion, released on 14th of februari 2000. (Ben Liebrand)

2000/02/25 Ben Liebrand Chase
About the original version: Chase by Giorgio Moroder is absolutely one of my favorites. It is perhaps THE track which inspired me to start making music. The original track features elements like reverse triangle patterns, filtered hihats and beautiful sequencer lines. The original track dates from 1978 and was used as the theme for Midnight Express. (Ben Liebrand)
About the minimix version: Recently remixes have appeared which do the original no justice. I have tried to capture the original spirit whilst incorporating trance elements of the year 2000. It is a tottaly new recording, no parts from the original are used, as I believe the original is perfect the way it is.... (Ben Liebrand)
A combination in mash-up style of Morel's Groove and the vocal hook of Copacabana. (Ben Liebrand)

2000/03/17 DJ Jurgen Higher And Higher
About the original version: The original Version was produced by Erik de Koning, DJ Jurgen & Mark van Dale, and features the vocals of Karen Shenaz. It was produced with italo and trance influences. Rene vd Weyde pointed me to the possibility of making a minimix version. Quickly the choice was made, and the record company was contacted to obtain the acappella and synth parts. Special thanks to Erik de Koning and Jan Voermans for the immediate response and actions taken. (Ben Liebrand)
About the minimix version: The Minimix takes a somewhat harder approach in a more sequencer based version with several analog synths providing the sounds (SH101's and Minimoog). Several stops and breaks stretch the song untill finally the main melody appears and ads up to the Ben Liebrand approach to Higher and Higher. Ben started on the mix thursday evening, and completed it by 17:00 hours on the friday following. Then Ben typed this short additional info, burned the CD and was of to Radio 538.. Enjoy!

2000/05/12 Kool & The Gang Ladies Night (2-Step Mix)
About the original version: The original version was a big hit in 1979. It was produced by Eumir Deodato, who also released some great stuff under his own name. In 1991 Ben made a New jack swing mix, closely based on Guy's Her. Check it out! (Ben Liebrand)
About the minimix version: A new style is emerging, and becoming mainstream. It's called 2step, and Re-Rewind by The Artful Dodger is a kind of standard to what's 2step is all about. Ladies Night now receives a workover spicing it up with some of the typical 2step ingredients like rhythm patterns and the particular choice of sounds Vocals and Horns are taken from the original Multitrack, and are timestretched from approx 112 BPM to 130 BPM. The Chorus line comes pumpin' in with a huge Baseline. Sit back and enjoy the ride! (Ben Liebrand)

2000/09/01 Trammps Disco Inferno
About the original versions: Featured in the blockbuster movie Saturday Night Fever, The Trammps had a huge hit with Disco Inferno. (Ben Liebrand)
About the Minimix: Starting of with the Intro of Shout, the rhythm builds up using filtered loops of disco inferno. A vocoder is added in the chorus as well as Syndrums (real ones this time) and classic disco rhythms. This remix should have no problem fitting in with all the filtered disco stuff going on momentarily. (Ben Liebrand)
Why this remix? To have a great opening track in a new club in Nijmegen The Club is called Disco Inferno and brings classic Disco Music in the year 2000. Complete with Saturday Fever Dancefloor, mirror balls and orange decor, it's the ideal setting for going totally retro. (Ben Liebrand)
Combining the intro of "Shout" with "Disco Inferno", a vocoder was added as well as the typical late 70's "piew" sounds. (Ben Liebrand)
