“10 Years. 14 compilations a year. All playlists are hand-picked, sequenced and given artwork. Different concepts, themes, reasons and moods. Ups and downs. Are you ready for more?” This is how the opening interlude introduces this compilation – the one that started it all. Ten years ago I sat down and made a plan to create a simple music compilation system that would satisfy all demographics and move away from my CD burner to a broader audience. What has become of it is not only a great brand, but also a craft that I have learned to hone through time.
This is the compilation that launched it all. The one that sought out to brighten some people’s days up and ended up being a series of 10 compilations through the years. 145 compilations later, here we are! You know we do this all for free, so you better be thankful and spread the word around. Some of y’all feed your iPods with this compilations every month, so it’s time to pay back a little.
So, in order to keep getting the music, please join this little group: Nasser’s Mix Galore for future updates!

?Do It Again? is the first single taken from the mini album and is an ?accidental pop song? written after a night out together in Bergen. It is one of the most effervescent, effortlessly uplifting electro-pop tunes of recent years, and started life as a rave-inspired throwback.
On April 28th 2014 Island Records / Universal Music Catalogue are delighted to announce the first ever deluxe edition of Grace Jones? groundbreaking album Nightclubbing, celebrated in a variety of formats.
The international musical landscape of the last 30 plus years would be a markedly lacking and less colourful, had it not been for Nightclubbing. Its influence is inextricably woven into today?s rich tapestry of sounds.
In any number of current musical leaders, it?s impossible not to hear (and see) the influence of ?Nighclubbing?; Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Kelela, Massive Attack, Gorillaz, Hercules and Love Affair, Satigold, Todd Terje, M.I.A., Rhianna, La Roux, Grimes, FKA Twigs, Lorde, Polica, Metronomy, Beyoncé, Solange, Rhianna, Yeah Yeah Yeas, Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem and La Roux are but a segment of artists indebted to Miss Jones.
