Mixdown 005

Last Day of Classes
~134 bpm

Straight up, I'm a big fan of this set list. Now that I'm no longer mixing for my radio show I'm not constrained by time structures. Instead of doing 3 minute burst transitions I let the songs play out for 5 or so minutes and do longer mixes since some of these tracks just need to be heard from beginning to end. I even throw in my first live mash of the Ferry classic "Punk" with one of my favorite Anjuna mixes of "Sex on the Beach." Of note: I've been having ground looping and latency setting issues, so some of the drums sound trainwrecked, but I'm still posting this cause I love the tracks too damn much.

Despite hard times--job loss, crashing market, failing economy--we are on our way out, stronger and more focused than ever before. We'll keep faith and remember that as Americans we already have what matters most . . . our freedom.

2AM ExperiMix
145-175 bpm (craziness)


No surprises here. The 2AM ExperiMix is a mix of random genres woven together at 2AM on a Thursday night (morning?). There was only one song I wanted to play on this set, the rest of it sort of evolved organically out of that track based on key and bpm. It's a markedly different and more experimental set than I've ever done, but I felt like mixing something that wasn't in the usual 120-140 range. Talk about genre-shock!

Holymen - Looking For Something...Spirit
The Faint - Mirror Error (Afghan Raiders Remix)
