Same Thing But Different – February 2018

I know that a lot of people often think of pounding, faster techno when they hear the DJ Name Rouchos, but I’m definitely so much more than just that. ‘Same Thing But Different ‘DJ Sets explore records collected over my 20 odd years as a DJ but couldn’t otherwise find a natural fit for in my regular podcasts.

As part of the audience. I always get a degree of pleasure seeing the DJ digging through their crates and un-sleeve real records; it turns heads and surprises guests.

In this edition of ‘Same Thing But Different’, hardly any sounds were selected for decoration, this mix takes you from deep house to abrasive electronic beats, ending up with a couple of reggae tracks. As always, this DJ set was compiled and mixed by myself using vinyl only.

  2. Rick Wade – Sound
  3. Och ‎– Time Tourism
  4. Anton Pieete ‎– Next Year (Awanto 3 Remix)
  5. Aubrey – African Song
  6. Frits Wentink – Aquarelle
  7. Arttu – The Factor
  8. Deetron – Blues
  9. Detroit Trax – Unknown Detroit
  10. Mike Sharon – Drifting Waves
  11. STL – Spy vs Spy
  12. Torben – Torben 004 Side B2
  13. DJ Unrefined – The Resistance

Since You’re Here …

… I have a small favour to ask. Did you know it can take me up to 8 hours to curate, master, edit, upload and share my weekly podcasts? That’s a full day of work but I am happy to share my vinyl collection with audiences.

Unfortunately, I am also an adult, and maintaining my gear, turntables and records do carry expenses. So I have setup my virtual tip jar searching for a coffee. I didn’t set up a Patreon page to make a living, or get rich, rather, I’ve setup my Patreon with the intention of using it as a channel to reach out to my followers and fans.

If making a recurring donation on Patreon is too much of a long-term commitment, perhaps buying me a coffee suits your budget. Click here to donate a few dollars using Paypal, otherwise, my future would be much more secure if you were to become a Patron by clicking the orange button below.
