    really enjoyed it mix, all the tracks go really well with each other in a musical sense, all sounded in key, and i think for the type of more laid back mix you did it was spot on.
    my knowledge of most of those tracks isn't great but it sounded very good indeed.

    Alix Perez – Suffer In Silence Ft. Zero T
    Seba – Painted Skies (Stunna Remix)
    Data – Compassion
    Sub Zero – Brighter Days

    probs my fave section (y)

    I echo what J Wood says, but I have to say the end of the mix stands out to me, brother. Really dug the flows throughout and it ended on a great note. Not your usual style for a mix to me, but I really liked it nonetheless. Impressive, man, keep it up!

    yes yes fractal thank you! yeah best thing about the members mixes is finding new tracks, so much good music that gets missed. reflection is a special track for sure, synkro and indigo are such versatile producers

    first off the overal quality of the recording sounds wicked, u have to tell me what ur using mate. ive only got shitty earphones in but u can tell it sounds nice, what program/set up u using to record?

    really good so far man, real smooth and clean mixing, perfect for this style of laid back tuneage.
    glad u played down with you, im all about that track.

    suffer in silence / painted skies is a wicked blend.
    as is compassion > brighter days .. when they drop its lush!

    really swish mix man, ultra clean just how i like it. you clearly know what ur up to! well played!

    had a listen through. the quality and tightness of the mix first off was pretty damn good. Decent work!

    Fav Section

    Alix Perez – Suffer In Silence Ft. Zero T
    Seba – Painted Skies (Stunna Remix)
    Data – Compassion
    Sub Zero – Brighter Days

    Didnt really have anything I didnt like in this mix, felt entertained throughout and didnt get bored of the selection.

    wasn't mad keen on the last mix with Swordfish, but generally the technical ability outshone any imperfections or parts I didnt particularly enjoy (which were few and far between!)

    Ill keep an eye peeled for your next installment

    Salute fellow smith.

    safe Teddy thank you :) when i saw you had posted a comment i half expected a full breakdown slaughter of every blend so i'll take it as a compliment that there isn't a criticism! down with you is absolutely one of my favourite tracks, just beautiful. took a while to figure out when would be best to introduce painted skies at that point, was pretty pleased myself with the lingering vocal from suffer in silence kinda stumbled across that one. cheers for the positive feedback! and i use a hercules mp3 e2 mixer with virtual dj, proper basic but i've only just got into mixing so a good place to start i think. in terms of the quality, virtual dj only allows me to record in .wav form so i have to scale it down to 320 mp3 in itunes so it doesn't crash soundcloud. works out good for me so i can listen back and see where i really fucked up or something didn't go so well. thanks again for checking mate much appreciated

    greetings fellow smith thanks for listening! :) safe for the positive feedback, as always much appreciated and glad you enjoyed the mix as a whole i put quite a lot of effort into track selection, glad it paid off. also glad you mentioned that swordfish error, to be fair it was so jarring to me i didn't wanna upload the mix, i know next time i'll just re-record until i get it right. and thanks i'll hold you to that when my next one comes around! :cool:
