Brand New Day, Brand New Night

It's that time again! The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and life springs anew. After a fall and winter blackout period, Petropolis is back in action for your aural deee-lites. For the 10th anniversary of Lovely Day/Lovely Night (the spring mix that started this double disc ridiculousness) Brand New Day brings us back to basics to focus on the music.

This mix is all about the soul cleansing purity of getting lost in the groove. So relax, breathe, and let it take you where you need to go. And remember, a brand new day brings a brand new night...

PS. Listen online below, or download the single track so you can set it and fugget it!

One Love,

Lovely Day, Lovely Night

The year, 2006! The place, Austin, Texas! That year saw some major changes for Petropolis, giving birth to the very first double disc spring mix. Yes, a fabled classic in his own mind, this is the mix that started the grand tradition. Evoking lovely days spent running the trails under blue skies, and a trippy, iridescent night spent dancing till the sun came up.  Be sure to enjoy Lovely Night's 26 minute dance extravaganza!

For its 10th anniversary, Petropolis finally created the artwork that was always in his head, and will release Brand New Day | Brand New Night as a soul sister follow up. AND, Petropolis is now on Mixcloud. Listen online below...

After a lovely day...have a lovely night!

This one goes out to my grannies Patunia and Dee-lish.

Summer Night City

Hot summer nights and hot disco trax. Le freak your way to the dance floor, 'cause we're gonna boogie oogie oogie til you just can't boogie no more. Your disco needs you. Ya dig?

This mix is inspired by and dedicated to the one and only Charlotte Rose Coyle, my muse and disco lover. Dim all the lights sweet darling, and let's dance the night away.

Summer in the City 212

In June 2010 I moved on up to NYC and experienced Summer in the City. Five years later, I'm bringing the sequel to the 212. Summer has many faces, but I love pounding the pavement to some old school funk. So if you got the boogie fever, get up offa that thing and dance until you feel better! Ya dig?

This one goes out to Shwaelder!

You can find it all here, just step inside, walk this way. In the neon glow of busy streets, Caribbean queens await in the sexotheques while speeding convertibles burn up the highway to the danger zone. Buckle up, this year Petropolis is headin' into overdrive. Come with us, we're gonna rock down to Electric Avenue!

Blue Skies

Spring has finally sprung! While we're hard at work in the StuStuStudio on this year's mix, I wanted to share this chestnut with you. The year was 2004, before the spring mix became a thematic double disc extravaganza. Freewheeling road trips, fresh air, wildflowers and wide open spaces. And a little Jermaine Stewart ditty that gained an exalted place in the Petropolis mythology. 

I meant to share this last year for Blue Skies' 10th anniversary, but I had to reconstruct from a CD that wasn't in the best shape! So I patched it together with love, and I hope it puts a smile as big as Texas on your face.

LoveGame: Sublime

Hello lovers. It’s time for something sticky and sweet to heat up the winter thaw. LoveGame:Sublime is a 3am whisky shot, panther vixen lap dance. Get lost in red lights, hard bodies and soft skin. You may not be yourself tonight, but you’ll be lovin’ every minute of it.

In the hushed quiet, we find the time and space to reflect, to exhale, to rest. Let these introspective and otherworldly sounds take you through the dreaming time of winter...

Seven Devils

I'll be dead before the day is done.

Hello, my sweets. This creation you behold in your sights was a long time in the making. Over two years, in fact. But now, the stars see fit to shine their dark light on our ragtag band of children. Follow me into gypsy tents of the Big Top, where ghosts of long ago hide their opium den indiscretions and secrets.  Peer into the thaeter of the grotesque, in the flickering light of silent films and Weimar cabaret. Watch as Hallowe'en of old collides with the golden industrial age. Step right up, come closer, the wonderment lies ahead in this woozy, Absinthe fueled funhouse, but...you have been warned. It's a long, hard road out of Hell.

Sweet Dreams,
Sir Cosmo von Bathory
New York, 1933

Lites Out at the Silver Bell

First, there was Midnight at the Starlite, a whiskey fueled homage to the great David Lynch. In 2008, the follow up Lites Out at the Silver Bell took a decidedly more sinister turn. A seedy motel, a loaded gun, static on the TV and a pounding on the door. In those lonely hours and moments of despair, put this record on. These songs are to die for...

Stay tuned for the third and final installment this fall, Last Call at the Blue Angel.
