Celebrate Diversity

Did this one over the weekend. Like the Deeper mix it has a combination of newish and old stuff but probably is a little more diverse musically (hence the title). I’m not 100% pleased with some of the mixing on this and contemplated re-recording the whole thing but I decided to put it up anyway, few rough edges and all. 06-02-25Diverse.mp3. File size is 109.4 mb and it was encoded at 192kbps, runtime is 1:19:38.

    Something else a bit different. I don’t like the term “chill-out mix” – a term which has surely been done to death by all those awful compilation cds cluttering any record shop – so I’m calling this mix of deep jazz and stuff a contemplation mix instead: 06-02-23Contemplation.mp3.

  • February Mix

    This is one I did last night. This one has a little bit of a techno flavour with the Carl Craig, Galaxy 2 Galaxy and techy Seiji mixes. I had to split it into two parts because one record just started skipping and I didn’t really find an elegant way out of it, it was encoded at 192kpbs.

    February mix part a: 06-02-09a.mp3. File Size is 44.2 mb, Runtime is 32:09.

    February mix part b: 06-02-09b.mp3. File Size is 60.6 mb, Runtime is 44:04.
