Update: It’s also been uploaded to soundcloud & mixcloud now:
The first “Out of Phase” mix in the podcast. This one was originally recorded on 5/20/2010, and mastered throughout the first week of June. I just put the finishing touches on it, and I’m very proud of the result.
I’m really psyched to finally release this mix!
Getting to this point was really exciting, simply because I really wanted to pay attention to the quality of this mix. Why? Well, this one’s special to me because I hand selected some of the best 5 star tracks in my collection so far.
It’s a collection of the best dark, industrial sounding minimal techno tracks that I’ve come across in the past year and a half (plus some fun extras that don’t even fit in this category, but mix well to tell a story).
Playing with the nanoPAD
It was a blast mapping & testing out my new korg nanoPAD midi co
ntroller for Traktor, and pushing the effects to the limit while still blending the tracks seamlessly. I learned a lot of new effect techniques and fills that I showcase throughout the mix, so be sure to listen for them and see what you think. I lost a bunch of sleep mastering and preparing this one for release.
It starts out nice, a bit techy, tribal and smooth but soon becomes a sonic journey through darkness, playful rhythm d
econstruction, unrelentingly grimy basslines, hauntingly disharmonic soundscapes and finally ending with a light at the end of the tunnel.
