    Popping this on while I get some work done, at work.. will edit with comments later

    @12:00 transition - going from deep/soulful to acid was kind of jarring to me. Feels like it is out of place and the sound levels going into the track right after it increase dramatically (way more bass)

    After listening to more of it kind of spot checking each track I notice that you switch up subgenres/energies with almost every track, which to me doesn't flow well when I listen to it. I appreciate the wide selection and tastes that you have, but as far as mixing them all together I would personally separate the subgenres/energies into more definable portions of the mix, starting with lower energy tracks, and ending the mix at a higher level than where you began.

    I am currently experimenting with raising and lowering the energy level throughout the mix maybe once or twice, but it is a delicate operation as the wrong track in the wrong place/time can really make the listener's emotions change too quickly.

    Going from soulful vocal house, acid house, deep to tech, to disco/soul/funk felt kind of scattered. Also an 1.5 hours is a long time for 19 tracks in my opinion unless you are spinning straight techno where you have several minutes to play with and rearrange sections of tracks, and most tracks are 8+ minutes long by themselves.


    Technically (skill wise) the transitions do seem to be well done, albeit almost too well done (robotic). I am curious as to your current setup, what are you using to mix? Hardware/software, sync button usage, mixing in key/harmonic mixing, etc. A lot of these tracks sound like old school vinyl, so I am wondering.

    Keep up the good work and thank you for sharing your new mix.


    edit: just saw your signature with your equipment listed, duh. haha

    Cheers, thanks for the feedback.

    I come from an old school balearic approach, hence the varying styles. I actually find that many mixes these days are just too samey playing tracks that just sound too similar. I don't use mixed in key. I have done a Pt.2 and that builds further to a higher energy level.

    Just researched balearic beat, I had no idea that was a thing! Understandably, I am only 25 and have been DJing for 5-6 years, so my exposure to the true old school is limited simply by my age and late exposure to the house scene. I understand now what that type of mixing is, it was just foreign to my ears because I have not heard that style of mixing until now. I apologize for the misplaced criticism.

    I can really appreciate the 'no rules' approach to that style of mixing using unique vinyl records that stretch across multiple genres. Dancing in a club to that type of beat would provide more of a variety over the course of a set and I can definitely see what you mean about DJs playing tracks that sound way too similar.

    Thank you for enabling me to discover yet another piece of the important history of DJing. I love learning new things!
