Desire (Concept DJ Sets Based on the Movies Before Sunrise & Before Sunset)

I created these two DJ sets years ago, when I was a hopeless romantic and felt grooves from deep within my soul. The movies, Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, appealed to the romanticism that helped sustain me in those dark years - from 2010 to 2014. In watching those movies I had imagined what it would be like if I had created the music score. What songs would I use for my favorite scenes. I did just that. From those movies I pulled sound samples that, when interlaced with selected deep and soulful house music track - the result is a homage of sorts, to these movies, which for me represents the journey lovers take to the realization that they're soulmates.

Over the years I've created hundreds of DJ sets with music tracks that, in hindsight, were disposable, holding no special value. But these two sets have held up and I find myself going back and listening to them from time to time.

Take a listen and hear for yourself.
