motion for relief

I thought I'd try something a bit different...a mix that is beat driven.  Of course it's not going to be some house music mix or techno dance trax.

The mix is sort of in the same vein as the ones done
by Alan, of Great Axescapes fame.  He has a fantastic mix called "nowthatswhaticallmnmlambidubtechno! vol.1".   You can find it here...vol. 1.

This mix is similar in that dubby, ambient way.  Only one artist, Quantec, in common though.  

I wasn't sure how the mix would work but I like the results very much.  I'm listenbing to it as I type this, nice & loud so the low dubby bass lines reverberate around the house.  Excellent.

The other different thing about this mix is it is shorter than the others.  An online friend, Mick, is running The "15 Minutes Of Fame’ Mix Series" & he asked me to do some mixes.  The only requirements are up to 40 minutes in length & no more than 10 tracks.  That should help with some experimentation, may be an idea will work in a 30 minute mix but not for the usual hour-long mix. Here's the link to Mick's thread at Dogs On Acid...http://www.dogsonacid.com/showthread.php?threadid=602380&highlight=muttley+minutes

I should be able to crank out 3 more mixes by the end of the year.  Next up...a piano mix, a noisy-droney-scratchy mix and a best of the year mix.

Thanks for the positive comments! And thanks for the reminder about playmytape.net. I've been there before but had totally forgotten about it.

Some mixes I listen to more than others, doesn't necessarily mean I like them more, they just lend themselves to repeated listens. So far this mix is one of those. I've been playing it everyday at work & still liking it. So I'm happy that others folks are liking it as well.
