Will a string of tracks burnt onto a CD with track marks do?


Thats what I do!! Basically. OG mixtape styles - much more interesting to me than a mix of same same sounding music, just caused it is mixed seemlessly does not make it interesting. I give props to people who would use the MB.C mix to make a statement, do something original, do a remix for the mix, lay some lyrics over it, a live insturment, one of their own tracks in their for good measure, maybe a classics mix, or a style that does not get much play. Make it something special. And yes Kronz, i reckon if you thought hard enough about it and layed out a mix tape, mixed or not, it would count as special, if you thought hard enough about it.

Asking Kronz to think hard might make him explode.
Jokes aside, I really respect your viewpoint here D.
I've always thought it was farkhen lame when 10 DJ's bowl round to an after gig party (usually D'nB in my experience) and they all have a crate of records at the same BPM as everything heard in the past 10 hours at gig and pre-gig drinks. And it bored me enough to start playing tunes myself. At different BPMs from different genres. Thats why I love the Off Beat parties and use put on the Flip Your Wig parties.

Righto, so we've decided to rejig things a little bit. Basically, instead of announcing things a month early and then waiting around, we're just going to have one mix dropping on the first day of every month. You can use the month to chat about how awesome the mix is. :)

The first one is going to drop on the 1st of April (no joke).

You can blame system too.

But I'm taking all the credit if it turns out to be good.

This makes much more sense. Could we please start archiving the mixes too? And why not make a podcast out of it? Not that hard to set up and it'd get plenty of listeners on iTunes.

yeah, makes sense. more coherent archiving is on the books too, and we'll see about itunes.

we've already chosen randomly. who does it is a secret until the mix lands, which is the whole point.

before: say who it was, they make mix, you talk about it until the big day, at which point people download and you start talking about the next person.
now: mix lands, you get it as a surprise one day, you talk about it for a month.
