It’s been a LONG time since I shared any promo mix. Not counting yearly Spring Mix and yearmix, these were two years.
So here it is. Universal Groove.
All the forces in the universe united to kick your ass.
All the adjectives that describe this mix are: groovy, banging, club, dancy, powerful, heavy and hard, techy, twisted and crazy.
No progressive tracks, no neverending breaks, occasional uplifters. Only raw power of sound.
An interesting thing about it is that’s my first set mixed in key, out of about 250 till date 😉 That was an interestting try. Tracklist looks really weird as there are some tech-trance tunes next to uplifters and psy, all mixed together. Still, melodies blend seemlessly. Also, all the uplifters turned out to be in minor key, while psy trance is in major – which is counter-intuitive, at least. Two tunes in same key can give very different feelings. So far I always ordered tunes from soft and progressive to hard and energetic, all by ear. Which often turned out well, but sometimes it was unpleasant suprise when tunes did not match at all the way I imagined.
Mixing tech-trance in key may seem an overkill, as this genre is eays to handle and has very little melody, if any at all. Still, maching keys allows mix to become perfect – hopefully it is. Enjoy it 😉
