Ok so it’s not quite as impressive as Madeon‘s 95 track minimix, but we were nonetheless very pleased to discover Russ Chimes released a free download of his 29 track, five-minute minimix he crafted for Annie Mac last week. Chimes highlights his penchant for the classic — throwing in more than enough soul, lusty piano riffs, and dirty groove-based samples for the adoring vintage house fan. Dare we call this…perfect? Download below and tracklist after the break.
Steve Angello took to Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 broadcast to celebrate 10 years of success with friends old and new. Before jumping into the music, Steve spoke upon topics such as the final tour of Swedish House Mafia, the future of his solo career, and his upcoming album Wild Youth, which he revealed will be ready for March 2013.
Prepared with a trip down memory lane in the form of a minimix, ’10 Years of Me & My Friends,’ turns back the clock, reaching into the archives of the past decade for tracks with colleagues such as Eric Prydz, Laidback Luke, and of course, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso. Listen to what Mr. Angello had to say in an interview with Annie Mac and listen to his latest minimix — tracklist below the break.
Editors Note: Steve gives optimism to the upcoming winter season, claiming “dark brings disco.” We hope the Mescal Kid is right.

In an age where DJ skills and set preparation are rightfully scrutinized, one artist continues to lead a new wave . Of course, we’re talking about Madeon — the young phenomenon whose impressive studio talents mirror that of his live performances. A rarity in today’s EDM scene, you won’t get generic outro-intro transitions in his mixes. Everything is fast-paced, with greater emphasis on harmonics as opposed to simple beat-matching. So who better to take on one of Annie Mac’s Five Minute Minimixes than Madeon?
Compiling 93 tracks in 5 minutes (roughly 3.3 seconds per song) is nothing short of astonishing, but that’s what makes Madeon, well, Madeon. The launch pad master sampled everything from Lady Gaga and the Beatles, to Deadmau5 and Daft Punk, making his previous “Pop Culture” mash-up/mix look like child’s play.
