    heya :Smile3:

    where to start?

    firstly, it's a really well resolved mix; as a complete piece, it has artistic integrity, by which i mean none of the transitions are out of place or badly executed. of course at 128k some of the sonic depth gets lost :Wink3: but it still sounds good. what equipment are you using?

    the mixes are well thought-out, both in terms of the technical element of the actual mixing, and their progression. it's a great 'journey' mix, with distinct patches of sound - funky, dirty, uplifting etc.

    the use of FX is great throughout, never over-used which is Most Important.

    there aren't any obvious clashes or fuckups, but i kind of expected that. again, i'm not sure if this is a compression sound quality issue, but when the bass from the next track is brought in at 6:05, it sounds a little bit muddy. however, this could also be due to the relative shiteness of my speakers :Wink3:

    it's a really organic mix in that you can always hear something going on, without the mixing ever intefering with the music itself. they key changes are good, because the mix never feels like it's stalling or downshifting per se - which harks back to the earlier point about a solid progression. a good example is the transition from one track to the next @ 25:15; the mixing of the basslines in the 30secs or so beforehand creates a new 'hook', that leads really well into the key change from one bassline to another. it's good stuff.

    the tracks never sound like they're mixed at the easiest point, or inappropriately; they are all given time to breathe, yet the transitions are perfectly placed to give a good sense of musical advancement.

    the EQing is pretty good. occasionally one track might be slightly louder than another - @ 31:07, for example, the incoming track that kicks in is possibly a touch too high volume wise, or maybe it's just the kick being more distinct in that particular track.

    there's a pleasing sense of completion with the opening & closing tracks being quite melodic... track selection wise it's great, if you could PLEASE post a tracklist so i can, er, go out & buy these tunes :Wink3:

    good work mate!

    ps. i'd be interested in your opinions about some new tunes -

    wow! Thanks dude. I never expected such an in depth and critical appraisal. Your comments are much appreciated. A few points to clear up/ answer :

    There is no use of FX - I only have a shitty mixer
    (following from above) It was mixed on 2 Pioneer CDJ500's and a Numark DM1100X - which also explains why the lvels are not always that accurate as there is no way to hear the levels of the prefaded track so it's just a bit seat-of-your-pants when you bring up a mix.

    Will certainly have a;isten to your tunes and give some feedback on your thread - will have to wait until the house is a bit quieter though.

    I will sort out a track listing ASAP and post it here.

    Once again, thanks for the good words- glad you liked it (keep pestring Dyer fr me for a return to Psycle :Wink3: )

    Nice.
    It that in depth enough? :P

    Liked the mix. Danced around the bedroom shaking the walls had to stop when a load of books fell of the shelf. :sad:
    Will be listening to this some more no doubt and keeping ears open for more. :dancey: :partysmi:

    heya,

    i was supposed to talk to dyer at hotdog but after 2hrs of mixing i got a horrible 'hot-dehdrated-fucked-pounding' feeling and had to bail lol... not to worry, will speak with him tomorrow i think.

    there's one part of the mix (can't find it now) where it sounds like a wah- or filter-effect is being used, it must either be just with eqs (nice!) or in the track itself (just as nice!). and there i was thinking they were 'never overused' LOL! :?

    thanks for the tracklist, can i have your cd case now as well?

    *goes out to buy rinkadink*

    let me know when your house is quieter :Smile3:
