65 - Illuminations

I’d originally started with another track – a favourite that I hadn’t used in a mix yet. And it inspired me to pull together a number of tracks that I liked and enjoyed in the same key (A#), gradually building up into a Psy-Trance ending. But, strangely, when I came to listen to it again, the first track wasn’t actually in A#, it was in D#. So, back to the drawing board: I found another track to start the mix with, gave it the same ‘fast fade in’ start, and it seemed to work.

Only… not quite. I listened to it again and decided that the last third or so of the mix was just badly mixed. There were a couple of transitions that didn’t work, and then it went to Psy-Trance where it just didn’t really need to go. So I updated it with a more trancey ending that seemed to work.

Only… not quite. I listened to it again and there was one track that I’d thrown in in a bit of a rush that had a good start and ending but sucked in the middle. Worse, I’d done the mixing in such a rush that there was a train wreck of clashing beats in the outro of that track. I wanted to keep the general feel of the trance mix, but finding a track at about the same pace and feel was tricky. I reopened the file in the start of July 2013 and put a better track in. It now doesn’t fit on a CD without severe editing, but I can cope with that. It feels much more complete now.

I welcome any suggestions, criticisms and recommendations for new music to listen to. I will consider doing specific mixes for people, but this is only a hobby. Hope to hear from you.
