Mixamorphosis - Dedicated To The Summer We Never Had



It's not been much of a summer in the North East corner of Scotland. It's fleetingly teased us on occasion, but never really settled in to a steady pattern you could call Summer. Now that we are staring Autumn in the face, I figured I'd tip my hat to the season that never was, and break up the stream of older posts with a fresh mix.

I'm still getting to grips with Traktor and I've still to get it all set up correctly, but I can't help myself from having a a wee session here and there. This is one of those sessions, recorded 100% live and on the hop.

I should have some news shortly on a guest mix or two, so keep your eyes peeled for news on that via here or over on the Mixamorphosis Facebook page.

As usual, linked up tracklist can be found below the player. Buy the tunes you enjoy and support the artists.

Mixamorphosis - Down The Rabbit Hole (April '14)


I'm hoping to have a few fresh mixes to share with those who are interested in the coming weeks, possibly one or two guest mixes in the pipeline too, but in the meantime, I'll keep moving older things on to the blog as and when I can.

Today I'm posting a mix which was originally intended for airing on Box Frequency back in April 2014, but due to a technical hitch, it never actually went out as intended. It's been on the rotation list for the Automatic DJ that runs the station when there aren't any live shows on, so you may have caught it there. If not, then it's a worthwhile post for me to be sharing. As a side note, this mix was cobbled together the day before I moved house. My CDJ's and mixer were the last things to be packed.... not something I'll do again in a hurry!

As always, I'd encourage you to buy the music legally should you enjoy any of the music featured and support the artists.

Down The Rabbit Hole - Softmore (Now MMCD) & Mixamorphosis



The 3rd and final Down The Rabbit Hole show I was involved in saw me joined by the seriously talented Softmore. You might know him as MK, Matthew Kyle, Matthew McDonald, MMCD, In The Woods (the record label) or even as one half of his new project Reticent (along with Stephanie Grace). However you know him, you have to agree that he has real skills when it comes to music, whether that be edits, sample based tracks or original productions and DJ sets. Safe to say, I'm a big fan and have been since I discovered his work on Soundcloud a good few years ago now.

This show came in 3 parts, but really, the star of this is the Softmore mix in part 2. Feel free to check my own contributions too, but you really should check out *and download* the Softmore slot.....it's a keeper!

By the way, I'm going to link up the tracklist as much as I can, but some tracks aren't going to be easy to find (or not possible at all) due to the nature of edits / soundcloud and the fact that Softmore created a number of these himself. 

You can check out Softmore (Now known as MMCD) via the following links -

Different Strokes - Show 1 - The dL & Mixamorphosis



The next post to be moved to this blog is from the debut Different Strokes show that was broadcast via Box Frequency and features a thoroughly good mix from The dL (of Decades) followed by a mix from myself.

I've been a huge fan of The dL / Decades since I discovered a treasure trove of top notch edits and DJ mixes over on Soundcloud a few years back. The edits and DJ sets were regular features in my (now defunct) weekly post 'Soundcloud Sunday'. There was even an edit of Minnie Riperton's track 'Reasons' done by The dL for the blog. So, it stood to reason that The dL would be high on the wishlist for my first guest on the first show, and I'm delighted he did.

If you enjoy this live mix, then consider checking him out on these links and giving him a follow:

Different Strokes - Show 2 - Simon Cox & Mixamorphosis



Keeping up the momentum with moving posts over to this blog before trying to kickstart things with some fresh posts down the line. Today sees the second show from Different Strokes moving over to the blog which features talented, fellow Aberdonian, Simon Cox providing a quality mix which is followed up by a mix from myself.

This show was broadcast on Box Frequency back in September last year and as I was fortunate enough to have been given that platform to post and host mixes from myself and others, I wanted to share that opportunity with Simon. I think it's fair to say that we both consider ourselves to be 'bedroom dj's' or 'hobbyists' that are primarily doing what we do simply for the love of the music and the fun we get from mixing tracks together. In saying that, I'm sure neither of us would turn away from the right opportunity, and that was certainly the case with regards to putting mixes together for Box Frequency.

As usual, if you enjoy the music from Simon, check him out and give him a follow on the various links below, and keep an ear out for his occasional appearances on Saturo Sounds via Mixlr.
