DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Dracula is in the House 2018

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Dracula is in the House 2018

It’s October!

Halloween is creeping up on us again and here at the Atomic Luau it’s time for the 2018 version of Dracula is in the House, my annual attempt to write a dance sensation based on vocal sample from the 1931 film Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi.

I’m a huge fan of that film. Ive watched it maybe 50 times. One line delivered by Dr. Van Helsing deserves to be sampled and turned into a dance tune.

This tune is, of course, dedicated to Edward Van Sloan, the actor who plays Dr. Van Helsing as well as to all the great actors who have played the character Dracula in film over the years, such as:

Bela Lugosi
Christopher Lee
Frank Langella
Gary Oldman
Luke Evans
And of course, the most terrifying, Leslie Neilson

Love it or hate it in the comments below. And, I’m challenging everyone that views it to write and share your own version of Dracula is in the House.

It doesn’t have to be an electronic dance tune. Any style. Any instruments. Do something A cappella or poetry.

Write a one minute song around the phrase ‘Dracula is in the House’ and share the audio or video in the comments below, on Facebook /djmondosrave or on Instagram #draculaisinthehouse2018.

NOT a competition. NOT giving out any prizes. Just want to see how many hardcore Dracula fans will actually accept this challenge by Halloween.

Have fun. Be safe and happy Halloween!

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Midnight Snax Trax – Fall of the House of Summer

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Midnight Snax Trax – Fall of the House of Summer

Labor Day!

Don’t get too excited. Severe storms across the midwestern United States are putting out those barbecue fires, forcing people indoors to do time in a confined space with their families.

But the American worker will endure!

Check out this loop mixing on Native Instruments Maschine MK3 and Maschine Jam. Some iPad apps thrown in on a whim and kept in sync by Ableton Link.

Unite!

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Midnight Snax Trax – Vindictive

Finally overcame my fear, dragged out the Ableton Push 2 and upgraded to Ableton Live 10.

Love it!

As a Native Instruments Maschine user, it was difficult to make the leap.

…At first.

But Live 10 has really revealed itself and I’m having a great time with it. Making loops. Chopping samples. Making drum kits.

I only hope the Maschine MK3 doesn’t get jealous.

Check out these loops.

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Gimme Gimme Gimme

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Gimme Gimme Gimme

It’s summer and I want it all.

I get frantic in August. I feel like time is running out. I have to cram all the BBQ and beach fun into the remaining days of the season because the world keeps turning.

The relative speed up or slow down of time is personal. Only you will know if you spent it well, and not until look up from what you’re doing.

This tune is iPad only. Apps: Beatmaker 3, LaunchPad, and AudioBus 3 along with iMaschine 2 and various software synths for the loops.

Listen quick and get back to the beach.

Cranked out some more loops on the Maschine MK3 this afternoon, most because i was disappointed with last night’s painful live stream.

Get right back on that horse.
