Drum & Bass The Art of the Drum and the Bass [deep, dark, neuro, tech]


Human Dubplate
VIP Junglist
A mix I prepared for a gig last Friday.

Quite a few bits from Calyx & Teebee, Icicle, Maztek, Naibu, BluMarTen, Spor, Noisia, Phace, Implex & Enei, Audio, Om Unit and things that I like.

I played something like this in the smaller room of the biggest nightclub in my one horse town, I was pretty stoked, people went nuts.

There are a few dodgy transition and some sketchy filter work, but I'm pretty happy with it overall, it's the first time I've managed to plan a mix in detail and I can see where I need to focus my attention to build something properly large in the future - I'm definitely going to have to go for shorter blends as they sound off on a bigger rig and I'm going to focus more on getting basslines to drop right after eachother without so much of the buildups coming through in between, going to try to get the whole thing rolling along at a more steady pace rather than trying to get as many of my favourite parts of each tune into each mix.

Now I'm looking for CDJ's so I don't have to carry my controller around.
