Episode: Surge

DJ Pete Savas presents "Press Play" Logo
The music is strong, hard, edgy. It pulls you, moves you, drives you to get up and dance. It's progressive, electro, even playful. But it always comes as a Surge! I haven't given you a progressive set for a while, so I thought it was time. You may recognize one of these songs, or if you've been out to hear me live lately, maybe three or four; you all know how I love to throw a little of the dark progressive goodness into every live set. It's the bass; it practically compells you to dance, and it feels sooooooo gooooood as it rumbles through your chest right down to your feet. Oh, don't look like you don't KNOW what I'm talking about, 'cause I've seen you out there dancing to it! So here's a slice for you. There are some monstrous tracks in here. Some are minimal. Some have a less-aggressive groove to them, but if this set doesn't get you dancing, well, you might as well go lay down in the dirt 'cause you're already dead! You may have also noticed another new thing with Episode 40 -- that's right, a new podcast logo! I think it's a lot better than the old one, and hopefully you will too. Well, enough chatter. Press Play, and dance to the Surge!

DJ Pete Savas presents "Press Play" > Freefall

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...
