Now for something different. Instead of mixing a set of pre-recorded tunes on the computer, I decided to just spin some tunes and record straight from the line-out of my mixing panel. No fancy riddim-transitions, no cutting parts for the nicest flow, no effects, just the vibe of the moment: turntables turning, tunes at hand and see where it goes. I always loved the way I made my mixes, but it is very very time-consuming and, as expressed, didn't feel like worth all the effort anymore. This could be a way in which I might still drop some mixes every now and then, since the time it costs is basically the actual recording time and I can still play some tunes I rate for the interested listeners. Might be less appealing to some, others might in fact enjoy the idea. Whatever it is, this is it for now. I did a trial-run with some modern roots 45s, little over 35 minutes for now and got enough encouragement from the people to go ahead and upload it, so here it is: hear me Jam For A While.
