Playing tracks by
Chris Lake, Trophy Twins, Cicada & Dirty South, DJ DLG, Richard Vission & Gnarles Barkley, Granite & Phunk and more.
I originally recorded this mix straight from the decks and it clocked in at an obese and bloated 2 and a half hours. I went around the day after recording the original and handed people the first 80 raw minutes of the mix; unedited. The reception was underwhelmingly lackluster. Back to the drawing board.
After going through the process of teaching myself how to edit out portions of audio that were poorly developed, unnecessary, redundant, boring, sloppy, etc…I did what was necessary. I opened the source file up in Cool Edit, now known as Audition, and I hacked the ever-living crap out of it. It was painful at first…to lose, no, destroy parts of your baby. To hack out motionless sections of transitions that you had rehearsed for hours. To surgically remove unexciting breakdowns that went on for just a bit too long. To tidy up your mistakes. To…wait a minute. This shit sounds GOOD.
What you have here is the result. Enjoy!
