November Mix

There are some really tight little house tunes in this (last) months mix. I’m a big fan of the Laszlo Dancehall number, the shuffle high hat and bassline work really well together. The Josh Butler track has a really punchy bass melody with some filtered moody vocals, perhaps a bit obvious but it’s powerful at volume and great to EQ. We also go a little old school with a sample/edit of Gypsy Woman – originally recorded by Crystal Waters (you’ll know it when you click this link) our version is laid down by Trikk and there is a bit of bassline beefing going on to bring an older tune up to the front.

Technically: My method this time was to run over all my tracks pace/mood intros/outros and I kept on shuffling them about till I was happy that the order felt it had a good flow. I then did a crude and quick version of manual audio mixing (I set the in/out just using the mouse over key breaks in the songs). After a few listens for the pain points I went back at it and made a few amends and added EQing over each mix until I was happy.

As always, I could have played around with this for hours and hours.
