Story: There is something very different and interesting about this mix. This mix is unlike any other mix I've ever done. Can you spot it? If you can you may be able to win a prize. The theme of the mix is uplifting and downright dark jungle tekno string based tunes. With such a contrast of emotional tracks I could not help but to think of the xian concepts of heaven, hell, and purgatory. Even though I don't believe in such places as they are written, I do like them for the concept. In my own belief, I think heaven and hell to be the place we live in right now. Your life can be either heaven or hell. Ever hear of the phrase, "life is what you make of it."? Another factor which lead me to this theme was the tune "Mystery" by Pennywise. I've always thought the tune had a certain enrapturing spiritual quality and it seems I wasn't far off base. Just recently I discovered that the beautiful cords in the tune were ripped directly from the movie "Flatliners" (1990 w/ Julia Roberts & Kevin Bacon). The scene they were ripped from was when the character "Joe" visits the afterlife and finds it to be filled with his departed family and all the women hes ever known. The music fits the scene well and it fits Pennywise's "Mystery" even better. Sadly the cords in the movie were stereo and they were recorded into the Pennywise track as mono. I guess the Symphony Sounds studio wasn't all that great (Although "Really Livin" sounded much more dynamic). CD cover art: Tracklisting: 01). Fast Floor "Plight of the Innovators" 02).

Thats right, this mix was made entirely in Acid Pro 4.0 in non-real time. In fact I only own two of the records in this mix, the Penny Wise tune and the UR tune. The Kaos & Julia set record I had but traded, thankfully I had enough foresite to save it to my friends DAT walkman so I can still n-joi it. The other tunes in this set come from my friends website, www.niceboots.com/breakizm so check that out if you like. Also I've always heard that mixing on the computer is easier then mixing on turntables. Let me be the first (?) to tell you that this is some sort of urban legend because that is not the case at all. If I were to have mixed this set on tables I could have done it in the time it takes to hear the mix. Instead this mix took me about 4 days to make on the computer and it was quite frustrating, especially mixing the non 4/4 909 kick drum tunes. It was fun though, and I can see doing it again some time. I'm glad to see it was appreciated and so good that no one could tell even though I lengthened the intro beats on a few tracks, that was the dead give away that should have tipped you off.
