HAUX, HAUX, HAUX! It's that Season again! Time to bring back the 'Ugly Sweater Mix!' … I originally created this a few years back for a Holiday Party at my place. It's definitely one of the most timeless pieces I've ever created, and ironically, I slapped this together with very little effort. So, decorate the Tree, bake some cookies & make this somewhat hilarious mix part of your Holiday Season traditions! Enjoy!

During a much needed 15 month vacay from radio, I did some serious soul searching. The Music which is closest to my heart, is Alternative. I've always wanted to create a program for listeners who like Dance Music, with an Alternative agenda. Indie Dance/New Rave/Alt Dance; whatever you call it, this Music is important. So I present DATABASE. A weekly show dedicated to this vision. Every Tuesday Night from 11-1 on C89.5, hear artists like Justice, La Roux, Passion Pit, Foster The People, Phoenix and MORE! Sound cool? Check out my latest show HERE!!

I had the honor of DJ'ing the WORLDS BIGGEST MASHUP PARTY - Bootie SF, this past weekend! There is nothing like this club-night. ANYTHING goes… nobody judges anybody for being themselves.

With the many artists featured on 'LETS GAUX!', I found it humbling that one in particular, acknowledged my use of their vocals. Bangloose, the Los Angeles based lyricist featured on Deadmau5's 'Hi Friend (Remix)', decided to go viral with my Mashup snippet from 'LETS GAUX!' Peep the video below!
Apr 1, 2011 :
Nearly 6 months of collecting, organizing & experimenting with Audio, has lead to this! My newest full length Mashup Mix "LETS GAUX!" has pushed the limits of my creative threshold. This is the most personal thing I've ever created. If you know me, then you'll totally understand the personality traits behind this project. If you DON'T know me, you'll get to. "LETS GAUX!" leans heavy on Alternative Music. The contrast between miscellaneous Urban lyrics, over bands like The Black Keys, Smashing Pumpkins & Coldplay, is incredible. Of course I've added plenty of 80's & 90's classics to the pot. There are 218 recognizable tunes in 41 minutes. Not to mention hundreds of beats I've collected and manipulated. This is what music sounds like to me. It's a constant clutter in my brain that never rests. I hope you enjoy "LETS GAUX!" Thank you for listening!

In anticipation for the release of my new CD "LETS GAUX!", I decided to remaster AUDIOPHILE! The compression rate on the original was WAT TO HIGH. I went back into the sessions and improved the fidelity. Considering this mix is my baby, I feel confident in the quality of this re-release. If you haven't heard it, PLEASE download and enjoy! If you HAVE heard it, download also… trash the old one. On a side note: I've decided to return to radio. I'm not sure what station, so I'll keep you posted! "Do It Live" mixes along with radio mixes to be expected once "LETS GAUX!" is completed.

If you know me, than you know I'm an Apple guy. I own just about every apple product on the market today. That being said, when I was asked to DJ a Microsoft gig, I thought "Oh the irony." However, I would never turn down the opportunity to market myself to such a HUGE company! Twice a year Microsoft throws a party of epic proportions. "Techready" is a global gathering of 25,000 Microsoft employees, mostly European. Tonight I'll be in the mix at Microsoft headquarter, and possibly teaching Bill Gates how to dougie! (POST PARTY REVIEW: Wonderful crowd! Took awhile to warm up… but then it was ON! Played all House to an appreciative European based group of tech gurus. Of course, I had to cover the back of my Mac with tape… but that goes along with the territory. HUGE THANKS to Tamara and Desi from Vangard Events, and DJ Aanshul!)

Months of living inside my Mac, on Pro Tools have been paying off. Within a few weeks, my NEW Mashup Mix will be complete! I was reluctant to begin such a HUGE project, as AUDIOPHILE took nearly 6 months to create. But, I realized a few things. The mainstream DJ community turned it's back on Mashups. A sea of amateur producers, (that JUST bought Ableton, Acid or Logic) ruined the desire for the genre. Over-saturated Fat Man Scoop & Whitney Houston acapellas vs random 80s songs, does indeed become boring. Mass DJs turned their back on Mashups, and swiftly chose the next musical flavor of the week (B-More, Electro, Dubstep). Mashups happen to be my favorite style of music. Maybe my sense of humor, A.D.H.D, or being bored with most music in general has something to do with it. I was waiting for the HANDFUL of Mashup Producers I respect (Girl Talk, Party Ben etc.) to create art for me to enjoy, rather than creating it myself. No longer. Once this mix is complete, I will begin another one! Good things to come, people! Good things.

SEATTLE SOUNDERS - END OF SEASON PARTY!
Oct 29, 2010 :
BIG SHOUT OUT to D-Twizzle from the Seattle based VJ's collaboration 'Beta Testerz'. He devoted some of his time this week and created something spectacular! My weekly (OK, sometimes biweekly) web-mix series 'DO IT LIVE' went ALL 80s this past edition! D-Twizzle liked it so much, he created a mobile video mix for it! Here's what D-Twizzle says "The 80’s was a great decade for music. People who don’t agree with me are most likely under 25 years old and didn’t really get to experience it. Local Seattle DJ, Victor Menegaux, puts out a weekly “Do It Live” mix and this last week he put out an 80’s edition. I decided to put together a quick video edit to the mix. I sacrifice a little bit of video quality for file size because I don’t want it to take forever to download. I got the video mix copied to my Samsung Vibrant phone and it looks pretty good!! For those that want to watch on their computer, I recommend using VLC Media Player."

Z-TRIP KICKS OFF LAST WEEKEND'S SHOW WITH MY TRACK! Last weekend, World Famous DJ/Producer & founder of the "Mash Up" DJ Z-Trip opened his set at Vain Nightclub in Detroit, with my remix of 'Give A Little Bit' by Supertramp. Zach (Z-Trip) had emailed me mentioning he enjoyed the track... which was TOTALLY thrilling to me! In my opinion, Z-Trip is by far the most interesting DJ to catch live. Always keeps his sets fresh, creative & well balanced. Check out Z-Trips official site for ALL THINGS Z-TRIP! Download my remix of 'Give A Little Bit' HERE!

Announcing "Do It Live"... new weekly LIVE mix! There have been TONS of people asking me lately, "When are you gonna return to radio?" ... or "Where can I download your radio mixes?" Incase it wasn't obvious to my followers, I did in-fact quit radio this past June. I haven't decided whether my sabbatical will be permanent, or return this Fall. HOWEVER, in the meantime enjoy this NEW weekly mix! Just like the radio ones I did for years, except I can play WHATEVER I WANT... Which means I can drop hella F-BOMBS! Some weeks it'll be Top 40 ish... others Alt Dance or 80s. Anything goes! Thanks for listening, ENJOY!

Welcome to www.victormenegaux.com !!! I’ve been creating a new site for several months, and it’s finally here! On the site you’ll find my radio/non-radio mixes to download, an upcoming events calendar, links to businesses I contribute to, and social networking sites. Also, expect an ongoing rant here on the main page. Everything from new music I’m feeling, to what my night was like at the Club. If it’s on my mind, I’ll be blogging about it. However, for now please take a minute to peruse the site. I will no longer be using www.victormix.com (let’s face it, it’s been an abandoned ship yard for over a year now anyway) … so, dump that chicken dinner and get with a winner! <<< Always wanted to type that.
