The Vault In The Mix Special Sampler - Open & Revolving - A Cool New Wave Mix Volume 4 - A DJ Mix By THE BEATMEISTER

Am back for another special mix to kick off the week. It's back to the New Wave classics once again with more of my fave tracks.

Also taken from our weekly The Vault In The Mix broadcast and a sampler of what you'll be hearing from our special weekend mixsets. Guaranteed FRESH, LIVE and ORIGINAL mixes every week! Make it your weekend habit.

In behalf of The Boy Wonder, Dean Andrew and the rest of The Vault DJs, a big shout out and thanks to everyone who tuned in last Saturday/Sunday as the recorded listeners soared insanely high worldwide, which was the reason for some of the dropouts, which is definitely good news as relayed to me by The Boy Wonder himself. The Vault definitely rules the online airwaves!! Our apologies though for the latter, but no worries as bandwidth was already adjusted by Live 365 techies. Hope some of you were able to catch the replay earlier this morning Manila and Sunday afternoon U.S.

2) Mandinka - Sinead O'Connor
3) Love Will Tear Us Apart - The Swans
4) Open and Revolving - Public Image Limited

A Totally Mixed Up Exclusive - Last Night A DJ Saved My Life - The Disco-Diamond Mix - A DJ Mix By THE BOY WONDER

Here's somethin' to perk up and start your week right... more FRESH RETRO DISCO goodies.

A special mix compiled, mastered and created by no less than The Vault main man, The Boy Wonder, back on the (digital) wheels of steel and mixing exclusively for Totally Mixed Up.

I'm really quite excited and proud to share a different kind of mix from him, as his usual forte is 80s New Wave and obscure tunes, but this time, he's experimenting on some 80s disco/pop stuff and also in digital mode. ( i guess he was somewhat bitten by the digital bug like most of us, hehehe) and as expected... voila! still an incredible set that he delightfully shared to all Totally Mixed Up followers and visitors alike.

This just proves once more that precise mixing, definitely, is The Boy Wonder's second nature no matter what equipment he uses and take my word for it...
your iPOD or car audio will love you for playing it. Another must-have for 80s disco/pop lovers with the playlist ranging from Janet Jackson, Snap, and Jody Watley to name a few.
So grab 'em while it's FRESH and HOT!!

Your comments are most welcome if you enjoyed today's superset!! Now it's time to show some love for your DJs.

What do you get when you infuse some rap/hip hop elements to synth-based electronic 80s-style sound? Then definitely, Jane Bang must be in the house.

An LA cum NY based artist, who merges rap with electronic & synth based styles. With flaunting provocative lyrics and a distinct edgy appearance, she creates a colorful presence that differentiates her from other MC's.

Jane's fearless approach has extended to the turntables, mixing East coast attitude with West coast dance-craze and she's planted seeds throughout New York City (Tokyo Bar, Beauty Bar, Happy Ending, Love, Hope, The Skinny) and is going international this fall.

Go to her myspace page via... Jane Bang MySpace. Here you'll find lots of stuff from Jane including her original cuts, radio interviews, and even webisodes from JaneBangTV. Check it out yo!

Now here's the mix sampler with a very hip and cool tracklist. Grab it while it's hot.

A Tribute To The Original Rhythm Of The City 99.5 RT - A Slow Retro Mix Volume 3 - A DJ Mix By THE BEATMEISTER

*Originally known as 99.5 RT from 1976 to 2006, as Hit 99.5 from 2007 to March 19, 2008, and as Campus 99.5 from March 23 to August 14, 2008. On September 1, 2008, the frequency reverted back to the 99.5 RT brand.
99.5RT back then was Manila's answer to Los Angeles' KPWR Power 106 and KIIS FM.

*It was in 1976 when 99.5 RT first went on the air. It was then operated by Trans-Radio Broadcasting Corp. (now GVM Radio/TV Corporation, currently operating Rock 990, Cebu's Y 101 & Butuan's Majik 97.5, RT's original sister station). Controlled by the Tuason family, since its inception until 1996, 99.5 RT then transferred ownership to Real Radio Network.

Its studios were located for most of its existence on Ayala Avenue in the central business district of Makati, at one time in Pacific Bank Building, then later moved to Royal Match Building. In April 1999, it was moved to its present location at the Paragon Plaza Building, along EDSA, Mandaluyong City.

*99.5 RT was considered as one of the FM radio stations to set the trend in using the Contemporary Hit Radio format first popularized in the United States, commonly known as "Pop" or "Top 40". RT first began broadcasting in 1976 under the helm of Emilio Tuason, who also became one of the deejays (his on-air name was "ET"), until personal problems forced his retirement from the station in the 1980s.

*Most of Metro Manila's legendary deejays honed their skills in RT, including Mike Pedero, who initiated the Top 40/CHR format of the station, Joppy, Al W. Leader, Dr. John Madness, Eric Caine, Adam Kite, Brian Panty, Joey Pizza, The Kaizer, Johnny Ceasar (now with RJ 100), Jeremiah Junior, Bob Kcurry, The Mighty Thor, Paul Reno, North Andrew (now Program Director of MTV Philippines), Jake Swann, Boo Kyler (now with 103 1/2 Max FM), Jiggy, OB Hollywood Andrew, Dick Rees, Joe Schmoe, Mark Cross, Joshua and Vince St. Price. The RT deejay became the gold standard for all other deejays in the Philippines.

The shows of Eric Caine, North Andrew, Boo Kyler and Vince St. Price namely my faves as they have the best playlist.

Incidentally, Eric Caine is my mom's cousin, which makes him my second-degree uncle... hmmm... just suddenly realized why I have this great passion for music, DJ'ing/mixing and radio. A big thanks to The Boy Wonder of The Vault for giving me the opportunity to be in radio even though in an indirect way via my mixes/remixes/music archives being broadcasted via The Vault on Live 365.

*RT was also home to some of America's popular hit countdown shows like "American Top 40" and the "Rick Dees Weekly Top 40". In the early 80's (specifically 1983-1984), RT also ventured into the music-video business. As one of the pioneer music video shows in the Philippines, "Rhythm Of The City" which aired on Tuesdays at 7:30 pm on then government-owned MBS Channel 4 (now NBN Channel 4), showcased then ground-breaking videos from artists such as Men At Work, Naked Eyes, Real Life, Michael Jackson, and some of the best acts in North America during a time when then-fledgling MTV had not yet established its presence in the Asian region.

It is also known for one of the best oldies shows in Philippine radio, 24K Friday playing the hits from the 70's, 80's and 90's.

It was also the first radio station in The Philippines to have ventured into having a home on the World Wide Web, launching its bulletin board in 1995.

Enjoy today's mix set c/o of yours truly, which is a sample of RT's playlist back in the day, when it was still in its heyday and playing the best music indeed. More music, less talk. I've compiled most of the tracks all heard from 99.5 RT, which usually accompanied me on my way to school or work and served as the soundtrack of my younger days.

*Special thanks to Wikipedia for the 99.5 RT info.
