Diary of Musical Thoughts Podcast Episode 8

"Gullible souls have noticed a correspondence in shape between certain mixes" - 52 minutes

Here's a useful link I discovered around the time I made the mix ... there's a bit of something for everyone in there, no matter what your level of professionalism and technical know-how.

For some reason I was listening to "Lemon Incest" and decided it would be a good song to start a mix with. From there, it developed into a semi-old school thing.  Every track, with the exception of Orphyx, is over fifteen years old.  The spirit of '90's electronica lives on ...

At the risk of revealing how the sausage was made (and therefore ruining the mix for you somewhat), I had to play a lot with tempos to make the mix work.  I had a preconceived idea in my head and wanted these particular tracks to fit together in this order, but in my head the tempos are always a lot more equal than in reality.  Still, I think things worked out fairly well in the end.
