after a long wait, MercuryRising is back with a fresh mix from me and fresh guest for your ears!

serving up the first guest mix for the new chapter in MercuryRising is San Francisco based dj Nick Williams.
i am very excited about this mix, he brings a unique flavor.



This mix was made with loops and edits of some of the music that has been inspiring me over the past couple months. The weather is turning for the better… the days are growing longer, the sun is out, and everything seems to be a bit brighter. This mix is really for everyone…perfect music to chill and socialize with, yet interesting enough for even the closest of listens. A mix for the beach, the plane, the train, the automobile… hell, even on foot. 25 tracks influenced from dub, minimal, tech, and deep house, all weaved together seamlessly in a 76 minute montage that flows from the first beat to the last. Slap it on your iPods, ‘cus spring has officially sprung.

Get Nick to get your ass a tracklist ASAP!!!!! I want to buy me some of those tracks. Good groovy house music...he's gotta be into Desyn.

Steve, wasn't able to get into your mix until around 29 minutes into it. When It got a bit more housy. It's very techy. I can tell you've slowed down in your sets too. This is a lot slower than the last mix I heard from you.

Keep progressing bro!!!:)

slowing down bpm could also be termed progressing


im guessing these mixes are both over an hour in length as well!?!??!?

steves is like almost 80 minutes, perfect for a cd burning.

keep on progressing. for if we don't progress...we regress. And that's not very good.
