    Default I think I'm playing the Red Bull Academy...

    My Friend dropped out of a genre mash-up competition and suggested me to them instead. It's on Tuesday and I have 15 minutes to play *at least* three different genres. I do have a choice of equipment, so I'm hoping to use my 4 deck Traktor set up (Faderfoxes for now) which should ease the pain a bit. I'm so far out of my comfort zone it's not even funny. I'm not a turntablist by any means but as a fall back the have Serato (which I've used a bit) and will take my Traktor timecodes in case.

    I usually play between Progressive and Techno but I think this will need to be a bit breaksy so will play some of these tracks:

    Prodigy - Smack my bitch up << opener
    Kraftwerk - It's more fun to compute
    Shannon - Let the music play
    Drummatic - Feelin Kinda Strange (Bass Kleph)
    Joey Beltram - Energy Flash
    Le Funk Mob - Motorbass Get Funked Up (Electrofunk)
    Evil Nine - We have the energy (album version)
    Cybotron - Clear
    Klaxons - The bouncer (Gorky mix)
    UNKLE - Reign (WoW mix)

    Don't think I can play all of them (Reign is 12 mins long, but damn it's awesome) but some will just be looped as backing. I figure having a pool of music to use and just keeping it loose will work best.

    Anyone want to weigh in? I want to get a good variation of recognisable and out there tracks.

    /livejournal To top it off I have a blood test tomorrow and the day after this set is my work performance assessment at 10 am!

    PS if anyone here is also in that compo, this track list is (c) copyright, 2010. :P

    PPS two more sleepless nights!

    I would vote for more variety in that playlist. Maybe some rock or latin music too? It's not exactly hard to mash up electro...

    start on a classical piece, don't worry too much about getting it properly gridded. then start a beat slicer on 8 beat loop mode and glitch up the sampled sound while bringing in a meaty breakbeat

    YES! I love how the beatslicer can provide texture where there isn't one, this is a great way to start off with a really crazy intro.
