As my first Cloudcast, I'm submitting a mix from 2007. This mix was done entirely in Ableton Live as an experiment into the viability of Live as a DJ and live mashup medium as opposed to a production environment. Pay attention to tracks 6-8 for a special treat that would be extremely difficult to do as cleanly on turntables.

In a competition on, not one respondent noticed how weird the mixing was in this set: it was created without the use of EQs or track levels other than gain adjustments. This mixing style shows the importance of phrase-matching as an essential DJ skill.

In addition, this mix may be one of the first examples of early psybreaks, a genre that did not come into its own until 2010 and–in my humble opinion–is the best thing to come out of the international rave scene in years.


Oh snap, there was a playback error!
