    I listened to this last night and again this morning. Last night I was coding, this morning I was going through email. Here's my feedback.

    - Levels and etc., and mixes (except one obviously-flubbed mix near the end) were all spot on throughout.

    - Phrasing was also similarly *correct*, though I feel like maybe there was not as much "apparent layering" as I like in a mix which is as cleanly phrased as this one was?

    - I felt like this mix was cruising around a 4-7 in terms of energy level, throughout. I understand it's on the deeper side and this may be your intent, but IMO even a deep mix should have a few moments of 9 or 10 (and probably a little 2 or 3) over the course of an hour.

    - Strangely, despite many of your tracks having "personality" in terms of their instrumentation, or vocals, or etc., none of them really stuck with me too much. This may be a weird side effect of me having such similar taste in deep house to you, that you are in the "uncanny valley" ( [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncanny_valley"]Uncanny valley - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia@@AMEPARAM@@/wiki/File:Repliee_Q2.jpg" class="image"><img alt="" src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/aa/Repliee_Q2.jpg/200px-Repliee_Q2.jpg"@@AMEPARAM@@commons/thumb/a/aa/Repliee_Q2.jpg/200px-Repliee_Q2.jpg[/ame] )?

    I guess that's about all I have to say. When there aren't noticable technical issues with the mix, up to and including phrasing, I think it's more important for me to understand the intent of the creator and whether they have lived up to it.

    I mean, aside from that I can only express my personal tastes and preferences as a listener of DJ mixes.. which I feel like are of much less use to non-beginners such as yourself.

    Thanks for posting, and keep at it!

    Thanks for the feedback. Strangely enough I listened to the first 30 minutes or so last night and really wasn't feeling the mix myself. I was in a little bit of a funk and just didn't feel real good when I did the show and was mostly just operating on auto pilot.

    One thing I did do different was use the same two samples throughout the entire set. Not all on the whole time, but on at different volumes and I ran FX on them quiet a bit. At the very end I fade out to nothing but those two samples. Curious if you picked up on that?

    Sad to say I missed the two samples.. I did notice an overall thematic consistency, but I didn't peg it as two samples throughout.. ?

    Then I think that aspect was mission accomplished. Not sure I really want people to consciously hear the samples. Knowing they're there but not hearing them is the ticket.
