I record these mixes every year on first day of spring, now the counter hits 12. Melodic tunes varying from chillout, through progressive and deep house to uplifters. Also features my remix of “Impellent”, which sits quite well here. Enjoy!
The trick was that I learned about the contets only one day before it was opened for entries. Starting from nothing, I somehow still managed to make it. Still tracklist was rushed, mix – improvised and I didn’t even listen to it before upload. Hope you enjoy it nonetheless. Usual tech & uplifting power 8)
The game plan is as follows:
Until end of October all sets will be ready (but it will hit 50 entries limit quickly). Then, between 1st and 20th November you can listen to the sets.
Next month, between 21st and 30th November, there’s voting on Afterhours.fm boards for members. Your support will be mostly appreciated. Next day results will be revelead, based on votes and ratings from AH staff. There are 50 contestants and 20 winners, so it couldn’t be easier 😉
Oh, and check the tracklist:
So here it is! My latest track prepared for contest. It’s a straightforward but huge uplifter at 138 BPM.
I really enjoyed original material I got and used pretty much all MIDI from remix pack, including bassline. Didn’t add too much of content or unsual ideas, the melody is strong enough to hold on its own. It was all about sound design, layering and modulation, then mixdown. It was great to see how this tune is coming from “just typical trance” to “oustanding” just over a day. It all was made just in a 6 days, had a week off.
I didn’t post for last 2 months, but it was busy and productive time.
It was only 4th place, but enough to make it. Looks like my first and only release will be progressive house. Will make another post when I get more details on this one.
It was my 3rd track this year, but 20th till date. It takes good time to learn production, but finally I’m there.
Secondly, due to this achievement I gave a lecture on how the remix was made and got free LuSH-101 plugin from D16 Group as reward. This trance workhorse is worth another post. My performance was recorded and will be avaliable on video in some months (only in Polish).
Finally, I also took part in remix contest of Andy Groove – Impellent.
Unfortunatelly this time didn’t make it, which makes me sad. It’s a simple but huge uplifter, going to share it soon. I still believe it’s better than anything I made till date.
All in all, you can expect 3 more posts exploring both remixes and the synth in detail. Other than that, I have a bunch of real-life events to sort out for now, but once I’m back, the music will be coming quickly 🙂
It took a long time, but eventually I hit 50 followers on Soundcloud profile. For that occasion I promised to give away a track. Here’s new, reworked Green Energy (2016 Mix) free for download.
Over last months I tried hard to achieve that commercial quality and loudness. Some people already told me this is it, so you can expect many more tunes in following months. Actually some are finished and waiting.
Also, I already know how to make it even better 😉 Stay tuned.
A bit late this year, but still here. I’ve been doing spring mixes for 10 years now and can’t stop!
There’s actually a lot of different stuff going on in this set, from deep to prog house, followed by melodic nad uplifting trance. Also there’s one of my own tracks “Bliss” and it fits so nicely 🙂 More details to follow.
