Tracks used: Dog Blood - Middle Finger Foxsky - The Whip (Udachi Remix) Feed Me - Raw Chicken Mord Fustang - Magic Trooper
Short and mostly unplanned 128bpm mixing session, experimenting with filters, key changes and loops. Pretty much just wanted to find something that would mix with Udachi’s ‘whip’ remix (because damn that’s a good track) and went from there.
High Point: Finally being able to pull off the Middle Finger -> The Whip transition using loops, and getting the timing (mostly) right. Only seems to fuck up if I use the full vocal as a loop, so I’ll keep that in mind. Changing it up every 8 or 16 bars might be a good idea too.
Low Point: Timing issues aside, fucking up on track choices when mixing out of Magic Trooper, hence why it fades out so quickly. I need to use it as a bridge track/DJ tool rather than letting it play out, because it kind of creates a mood whiplash, but ‘Raw Chicken’ is a weird track that’s hard to mix out of. Might follow it up with ‘The Spell’ (also by Feed Me) or just skip Magic Trooper entirely…
Next time: Try more shit with filters and key changes as part of a transition. A proper interface would help with this, but beggars can’t be choosers, especially since I had an accident with my glasses and need a new pair (so CDJs are probably out of the question ‘til Xmas).
“Appropriately timed with the group’s new album announcement and supervised by the artists themselves, high-end action figures of Daft Punk have been confirmed for release under the S.H.Figuarts advanced action figure series from Bandai Japan’s premium collector’s label, Tamashii Nations! The total figure height is approximately 15cm, and as with all S.H.Figuarts figures, these Daft Punk figures feature precise articulation for recreation of a variety of poses. The helmet areas will feature a shiny metallic finish for enhanced realism.” (x)
