Notes

  • This is the first mix I’ve made that sticks to a single label discography. My goal was to show some progression through the catalogue without getting stuck on any specific facet of the Digital Diamonds sound, but that had to be balanced with considerations for key and tempo.
  • My third mix to feature 100% Creative Commons-licensed content after The Colours of Ektoplazm and Spacecamp Psyfari 2014.
  • Arranged and recorded in a fairly short span of time by my standards; it only took about a month to work through the process.
  • The released version of Hynamo’s New Monsoon contains a small glitch near the end of the track; I ended up making a minor edit to work around this.
  • Working with Volker at Digital Diamonds was a real pleasure, as always!
  • Recorded using Traktor 3 and a Korg Nanokontrol.
  • Mastered in Ableton Live using TDR Nova and LoudMax.
