An Experiment

You know, us bloggers are always marred by copyright issues, I'm sure you all know about it so I won't bore you with the specifics. Anyway I got to thinking of ways I could still post my usual eclectic mix and have it be a little more legitimate. I toyed with the idea of making a podcast, and even made a prototype but that idea soon fizzled out.

Anyway, I got to making some mixtape type dealies. They're not anything special, they're pretty much a post, just without the input from me inbetween. I thought it'd be a nice change for all you out there and for me as well! let me know what you think and maybe this will become a regular thing. I'm not 100% happy with this, it is a bit rough around the edges (though I'm very happy with the Omni Trio / Goldie transition) but it is a prototype after all, and even then it's not meant to be a proper 'mix' but... well what else do you call a continuous string of tracks? :)

[Update - I no longer have access to this file so the mix is no longer available. It wasn't great if I remember right anyway, I've updated this post so the tracks included are available individually below anyway:]

Squarepusher - I Wish You Could Talk (Go Plastic, 2001)

Omni Trio - First Contact (Even Angels Cast Shadows, 2001)

Goldie - Timeless (Timeless, 1995)

Commix - Strictly (Call To Mind, 2007)

Netsky - Mellow (Netsky, 2010)
