It’s been a while. Sorry to leave you hanging like that. I’ve been working on some stuff though promise… Like a record label, and a challenging new position in a studio in LA. This is all good stuff! I’ve been keeping this mix all to myself for a while now, and the guilt finally got to me. Mix Architekt blesses us with an hour long journey that borders on genius. He is seriously one of my favorite DJs in the world, you should listen. While he completely embraces and pushes technology to it’s potential, he still does his mixes all live… and with a signal chain even I could love, that’s saying something.
This mix is a symphony of tech haus goodies, impossibly layered to create completely new textures. I have a few of the tracks so I was able to really see what was going on (yes with my ears). There is almost constantly four tracks going, expert filter use, amazing delay lines, complete restructuring of tracks you think you know. Technically it’s all there, but even at just the most basic human level… Emotionally it moves you from point A to point B, there are some serious builds and mood shifts. Highly recommended listening material. Try to find a comfortable spot, and jam it with your eyes closed.
I always love it when someone takes the time to plan out a DJ mix as if it were a journey, I think the effect is universal. When we think about where it begins and where it will go, not just stringing together the top ten on Beatport, or what the blogs are hyping… When we use our minds to imagine ourselves at the helm of some intergalactic control tower, and believe we can take you along for the ride? That’s when the magic happens.
