Mindbending Carpet

Hear Mindbending Carpet

This mix is really raw and there are a couple of technical difficulties. My mixer was dieing and the styli were crap. This mix is strongly influenced by the freedom of internet radio shows that don’t buy into the “necessity” of beat matching. The stylistic freedom is really liberating. I’m not ready to throw beat matching out the window, but I wanted to attempt something as diverse in a dance music context, sometimes sacrificing the smoothness of a typically beat-driven set. There are a few mixes that aren’t as smooth as I’d like, but the humanity of this mix is crucial – so I’ve decided it shouldn’t be polished. There are errors. There are abysmal techinical probelms around 26 minutes in (watch your speakers), and some more nastiness around the 47 minute mark. But the bottom line is that it’s about 90 minutes of music I love across the techno spectrum – flaws and all.
