Extended Versions of DJ Floorfillers
Label Manager Richard Lee focuses on extended versions of DJ floorfillers, which are making a reappearance in the Mastermix catalogue!
We are continually asked to bring back older ranges from the Mastermix archives and recently received a lot of interest in Extended Floorfillers. This is a range of albums from the Mastermix back catalogue featuring classic tracks made just that little bit longer!
Although the current trend is to play shorter edits of tracks in a fast moving DJ set, there are times when playing a longer version of well known song will be well received by your audience!
What Are Extended Floorfillers?
This is where Extended Floorfillers comes in. Each track has been carefully engineered to create extended versions to give you more options to play to your audiences.
This gives you longer versions of songs that were originally under 3 minutes long and can be added to your DJ sets to give you even more playability. The collection spans the 60s to 10s including mobile DJ favourites from:
- Queen – ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’
- Bryan Adams – ‘Summer Of 69’
- John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John – ‘Grease Megamix’
- Kings Of Leon – ‘Sex On Fire’.
The collection features an eclectic selection of tracks including:
- ‘Runaround Sue’ – Dion
- ‘Build Me Up Buttercup’ – Foundations
- ‘Mony Mony’ – Tommy James & the Shondells
These are all classic 60s floorfillers, extended without compromise.
I personally enjoy adding an Extended Floorfiller or two into my sets. I’ve used the extended version of Lionel Richie – ‘All Night Long (All Night)’ many times and it always hits the spot. It reminds me of when I collected the 12” version of songs back in the 80s! However we create the Mastermix Extended Floorfillers for DJs. This is unlike the 80s 12” versions that were often experimental and not always playable to a live audience.
Extended Party Classics
I know some DJs who use extended versions of tracks like ‘One Step Beyond’ – Madness to great effect on the dancefloor. A song that is full of energy and always a party favourite but made just that little bit longer. It’s always a joy to watch audiences try and maintain the pace! The iconic ending of the track allows for a natural transition into other music styles as guests try and catch their breath!
Extended Versions of Soul & Motown Tracks
The Soul & Motown tracks are particularly useful and always popular in the original Extended Floorfillers range. By respecting the track and using modern production techniques, we are able to deliver alternate versions of mobile DJ favourites.
We carefully select tracks for Extended Floorfillers and produce them specifically for DJ use. Select the tracks that work best for your events and create unique experiences for your audiences with these extended versions of DJ floorfillers.
