Hi everyone, I’ve been working on a new mix CD project over the last few months. It’s a double CD for the Balance Series from Australia.
The mixes were finished a few weeks ago, and I saw the rough tracklist was published before, so here I’ll update you now with a more specific one.

As you can see there’s lots of tracks on here, and it’s pretty entertaining to see what comments people have been writing about that on some forums. My intention while working on the mixes however, has not been ‘more is more’. Some of the tracks listed here have been reduced to a 2 bar loop, with some I only used the break or the intro.
The process of making this mix has been more like painting with sound rather than mixing the end of one track with the beginning of another. Working this way has been very interesting for me and made the project into something very different than a conventional dj mix cd.

I’m sure I won’t be pleasing everyone with these mixes, some listeners will be happily or uneasily surprised, but at least it’s pushing my own boundries in a technical, but even more so, in a musical and artistic way.

These are the track I used:
