Mixing at a house party Jump to: latest mix | latest news

I got into electronic music back in 1999/2000 (oh yes, the 'year of trance') when I was 17/18. We went to a few Radio 1 dance partys and I've got great memories of seeing Paul Oakenfold in Brighton with thousands of other people on the beach.

I started mixing music first on my computer and then I joined Get Decked, Warwick University's DJ Society. From there it was a downhill spiral! Vinyl addiction followed by purchasing some Numark TT200 turntables, which I upgraded to Stanton ST-150s in 2005. Currently I use a pair of Pioneer CDJ1000 MkIIs, a pair of Stanton ST-150s, a Vestax PCV275 and some Technics RP-DJ1210 headphones when creating mixes at home.

My music style has developed from Trance into Prog Trance and now really anything Progressive, be it house, trance or breaks. I prefer slightly more melodic and less deep prog, though.

This mix is called Sketch, because the music paints the picture.

Shamelessly stealing a good idea, here is a brief rundown of what to expect. Firstly there's some layering of At the End and Calyx that I was quite pleased with and after around 8 or 9 minutes you get the full on vocal from the iiO track with the great breakbeat that accompanies it. Next up is the simply epic remix of Orion's Belt and after that we have Magenta Part 1, remix courtesy of Michael & Levan who are on fire at the moment. After a long transition, you're dropped into a great vocal by Spooky and then taken towards a more housey feel by Quiz. Next, it's into deep prog territory. Fortier's track is a classic and following that are haunting vocals from Above & Beyond and Girl Nobody. Finally, more of an uplifting feel from Midtone and 4mal, climaxing with a classic prog trance number provided by Mr. Kleinenberg.

I really enjoyed making this one, I hope you enjoy listening!

As usual, mixed with 2 x CDJ1000 MkII CD decks and a Vestax PCV-275 mixer.

All feedback gratefully received.
