Yes. It’s true. I’m on mixcloud. As SOL_k would you believe. I’ve added a link to the menu that will automagically take you to my page. Currently hosting a mix I helped finalize with an old friend, GAS LOUDER. Techno, digital, and sequenced, this mix is tight, dank and dark. I added input into cueing and mix down, but track selection was all GAS LOUDER…for better or worse. Mixcloud doesn’t allow downloads, without use of one of *those* tools. Oh, and GAS LOUDER’s mixcloud page is… here
Spent some time last night recording a hard trance mix…Overdose and Pulse records stuff. Dropped an absolute trance classic around the 40 minute mark. Finished up, started post processing work [was in the middle of an amplify pass, before a normalisation pass]. Macbook crashed [gpu panic because Apple are terrible and used a cheap chip on the logic board, well documented]. I had broken the rule of save first, process 2nd. Rebooted, project unrecoverable. Added all the .au chunks in, in a manual recovery attempt. Macbook crashed again [gpu panic].
Re-attempted manual recovery this morning…and it’s not happening. As a small consolation…I do have firstly the “Diynamically Shambolic” to upload, and as a bonus, I have mix titled “Trance and Acid” which was recorded during a party a few weeks back, whilst I slowly sunk into a state of under the influence. Unreviewed, and I don’t remember much after the 20min mark, except for relief at making it to an hour…
I’m calling it Diynamically Shambolic. Sampled a few tunes off 10 years of Diynamic Records, followed up with a few tunes from my mostly under appreciated techno stack. Was really flying blind with this one, even let a record run right out [quick little edit in post production to hide the silence]. I need to do the car listen test, and then it’ll make its way into the mix archive. Let’s call it…24 hours?
At this point in time, the site is more or less in a completed state, except for more frequent mix uploads, and some occasional blog musings. Whilst I haven’t added tracklistings to my mixes, if there is enough, or any interest in doing so, I could go back and make it happen, especially with the small catalogue I have currently. I’m not sure what format the podcast will take, whether I continue to produce single one-off mixes, or if I attempt to tie them together with a theme. I’ve got a tub of unplayed, unknown hard dance records to get through, and hone my skills with my house / electro records, and then I have a stack of deep house / techno to get into. In the middle distance, there’s 7 discs of Solomun / Diynamic Music due to arrive here by June [definitely a mix or two in there]. I’ve got a hard trance / NRG mix brewing, currently…not yet decided whether to make it Hard House Sessions 3, or something on its own. Stay tuned, I suppose.
Finally, and I do sort of mention this on the front page, this site is my own creative outlet, it’s neither self-aggrandising or promotional, or loaded with shitty ads and promoted non stop on “the socials” or is it designed to facilitate copyright infringement. My tunes are in the largest, heaviest, expensive and most inconvenient format…if you’ve ever helped me move you’d agree.
