I haven't put together a mix of mainly "edits" for a good 3 or 4 years now. That was probably the last time I had a few ciders too. For a period, edits and house music based around that concept was what I mostly played but it went into overkill and for a while it seemed like every aspiring DJ / Producer jumped onto that wagon, which made me want to jump off.

 

So, last night I dusted off the edit folder and took a dive in. What I would say before you hit the play button is -

 

(1) - I'm a bit rusty and haven't played much of this stuff for a loooooong time so some of the mixes might be a bit rough around the edges and it was completely unplanned and live (as all the mixes I post are).


(2) - I'm still having ongoing issues with the Traktor software, and to be honest I'm not technically minded enough to be able to really nail down the problem and find a solution. I get lag quite often, so sometimes the software will freeze during a mix or the play button is a fraction slower to engage, an issue which presents in the use of effects too. (I really need to spend some time trying to iron out this, or change the set up if need be.... it doesn't make the"year of music" an easy task).

 

(3) - Ciders had been consumed, it may have impacted on me pushing the levels a little and so the sound quality might be a little impacted in places. Call it over exuberance. 


Having said all that, I had fun putting this together and that was the main thing, so I'm posting the results, warts and all. For all the plays it'll get, it wouldn't matter if every mix was a train wreck. As ever, I'll link up the tracklist (many are long deleted from the likes of SC or Juno) as best I can and would encourage you do some digging around the internet yourself to support the artists, labels and editors.


Also, keep in mind I've been doing this in the hope that if you enjoy any of the mixes I post, you might find the time and effort that's gone into it worthy of a small contribution to my Just Giving page which is in aid of the Sue Ryder Charity. Any and all donations are gratefully received and much needed. That's the garble for the week over and done with, onto the music....
