Maaan, you are so right! Mixing is so different and more diffucult than it was a few years ago. My problem is, that most of the new releases are boring or just simply don't have anything special. Producers want to create the big fish but instead of concentrating the general effect and consistency they distort the sound quality with random elements that are not fit to the characteristic of the track! Sorry to say but when I check the daily releases on Beatport, out of 30 tracks I can hardly find 1 which worth a listen, not a download.

Other problem is that the tracks are so diverted in terms of sound so they can hardly fit in a mix without causing serious inconsistency!


Did you like any of the tracks from the mix above?

One of the other major problems is all of the bullshit melodic intro's. It is really freaking hard to mix when 4 out 5 tracks coming out start out melodically. The first minute should only really be introducing the kick, bassline and the kit. If you want to make a first minute to already be melodic than make that the original, and make a club mix that can be properly mixed and playing in the club. I remember Jono talking about that at the IDM session where he was remixing "Tonight." Ironically, "Tonight" started out melodically, but A&B have usually been pretty good with releasing relatively mixable tracks.

Now there's a song that is a bitch to mix. I rarely play it out, even though I love it and feel it has a great vibe for non-trance listeners to enjoy.

I heard A&B play it a few times, but it was always the opening track lol.

sorry it's sounds very similar to Mike Shiver vs Matias Lehtola - Slacker (Original mix).. because of that i dont like it. This will be the first release I will not buy it.
