April Mix 2: Off The Cuff

Got round to doing another mix last night and I went about this one a bit differently. I had planned a long-ish mix and had most of my tunes selected and couldn’t decide the exact order of tunes – I had about three alternate playlists with the same tunes. I ended up deciding to do it on the fly and even though it’s mostly the same tunes, I went for what sounded right and what I was enthused about playing right at that time. Even if it’s a littler rough around the edges, it makes, I think, for a more spontaneous sounding mix – sometimes it can be a little dead-sounding if you’re going through the motions on a predetermined playlist.

There’s 14 tunes, a mix of broken beats, four-four, breakbeats mostly around 127 bpm and concludes with three tunes which have the drum pattern divided into triplets.
