Episode: Escape

DJ Pete Savas presents "Press Play" Logo
We are, each of us, besieged. Overwhelmed by this and that, problems and circumstances great and small, some of which we can control, and others still both out of our control and uncontrollable. The world hands us lemons, and we make lemonade for a while, until there is no sugar left. The walls close in. The doors close and lock; the windows shutter tightly. The lights dim, and finally go out. And all that is left is hope; even if it may be borrowed. Hope for something better. Hope for tomorrow. Hope for clarity to see through the siege. And then a patch of blue sky breaks through. The climb may be exhausting, the goal out of reach no matter how many rungs we ascend. Nothing truly changes, for we are we, and the we remains; but just then there is fresh air, light, and the possibility of hope's promise, no matter how brief. So, take respite, even for a short while. Go ahead: Escape.

The second in a four-episode set, "Freefall" follows "Escape" in style but not necessarily in theme. This is another mainstream house set you all seem to love so much; and while the music may be upbeat and happy, if you pay attention to the lyrics, you might notice what they have in common. There are some definite big hits rolling around in here: Adele's "Rolling In the Deep," Gaga's "Judas," Alex Gaudino's "What a Feeling" (which is sure to be a summer anthem), as well as new songs from Kylie Minogue and Robyn -- both of whom have rocketed into the consciousness of clubbers in the last year, despite their long careers as singers...

DJ Pete Savas presents "Press Play" > Everything Old Is New Again

You can't keep a good song down, or from the hands of remixers! It's something to be grateful for, actually; especially in light of the track listing for this set. Here are some old favorites, made fresh again, and honestly, they've never really sounded better! Spanning eras from the '60's to the '90's, from "classic rock" to "new wave," with artists as diverse as Pink Floyd, Aretha Franklin, Donna Summer, the Eurythmics and David Bowie to name a few, each of these songs has been tremendously influential in their own time...

DJ Pete Savas presents "Press Play" > tech-neeq

Dark, deep, groovy, like molasses for your ears, this is a slice of-tech house through my filter; it's my "tech-neeq." Another episode that has been a long time in the making; this time, it was a combination of technical and system issues, as well as my depression getting the better of me. But here it is, out at last...
