rumble young man rumble

in penance for spending more money than i should have this afternoon, i finally forced myself to record a practice mix. and now i'm throwing myself to the wolves by offering it for download. the first official disco-not-disco mix, i would really appreciate any thoughts/comments/kicks to the groin as i haven't played out in a while and need to get my shit together.

Hmmmm.... to be honest........

Beatmatching is fine but your bringing in the songs at the wrong times consistently! Makes them sound like trainwrecks.

You need to practice more with your songs so you know the best place to bring them in. Make sure you cue in the best spots and wait for the best times to drop it.

Beatmatching/transitions = :(

were you a house/techno DJ before? You seem to want to "ride the mix" for a longer time than should be with the squelchy dirty dub/bmore sounds you are droppin. if you check out bmore djs they just cut into the next record immediately.

Selection: good
hot bloggy slaps galore

Blending: needs work

datarock-- edu k: you were starting off in the right direction by dropping in every 4th beat but then you kept datarock up too long

edu k --- spank ro: that wink 'dont laugh' sample kinda screws it up. just drop out the edu K earlier and you are good...

spank ro -- klaxons: when going from spank rock into klaxons you were playing with it and it sounded cool but then the Klaxons cut went way out of key and the beats sounded off..

klaxons -- radiohead: good selection of the time to bring in the radiohead song but you've gotta drop out the klaxons earlier.

radiohead -- van she remix : once again just drop out the first track sooner. would sound great as the van she line is meaty enough to play on it's own.

van she - polysics: NICE! neat clean 4 beat mix and then drop out!

nice use of the mr carta sample at first... but around the 23rd time it is a bit much... sounds really cool and ecclectic when you first play it over polysics but then it gets annoying.. and the channel switch drops might be cool live but on listening to it recorded it just sounds like an error.

mr carta - bo didley -- smooth transistion

gotta go but these quality cuts are money well $pent.

peace.

playing it safe with this shite. come on. you couldn't sound more like everyone if you tried. which sadly , you did.

chocolate strawberries said...

Here's how to make delicious chocolate covered strawberries. First of all ensure that the strawberries you are intending to use are dry, then allow them to be room temperature warm prior to making them. After the strawberries have been covered in chocolate, put them in your refrigerator to cool, but do not store them in the fridge. Consume within 1-2 days.
