I really can’t believe it’s been ten years since I locked myself in my sketchy home studio for a few days and churned out this mix. I had a large selection of music that I wanted to represent as examples of my style and taste, so much in the end I wound up making a two part thing. Back then I burned it to CD, had cover art, the works.
Even though I was determined to make it anyway, the additional motivation to apply for gigs at five upcoming festivals didn’t hurt. I’m pleased to this day to remember that I was hired for every one of them after sending this along.
My tools were a Denon 2600f dual CD deck, basic mixer, my brain, and a digital audio recorder. I was a fan of looping, but for this I only adjusted pitch and temporary, no loops, no effects. Obviously no mixing software was used.
It’s full of mistakes and a few odd pairings, but I still like this. I hope you do too.
