Really interesting mix, Jan. The first two tracks had me thinking this was going to be a super solid, super gay, diva-house extravaganza. To me, the opener was nothing more than an establishment of the ideal tone of the mix - playing at the Pride festival and getting super soulful with it. The mix meanders off into a deeper, darker territory, with a few tracks flying in from left field. I was honestly not expecting the Run The Jewels track to 1) make any sense and 2) fit so well with the vibe you were pushing at the time. I think if I didn't know that it was you making this mix, I might have told the DJ that they were completely insane. Here and there along the journey you bring back some of the tastes of the diva house while not completely getting back on track until the end. The HAIM remix at the end was a nice touch. Definitely the most accessible mix I've ever heard you do, nicely done!

Thanks, I appreciate the listen! I really tried to bridge the gap between the more traditional sounds I associate with the gay house circuit and newer, more rhythmic tracks here, considering the event this was inspired by. It's cool that others picked up on that, too. And yes, I seem incapable of just playing a set completely straight these days. I'd get bored quite fast if I did, it seems.

I had a listen to your mix as well. Some of the tunes here really did it for me, but a whole hour of this synthwavy stuff is too rich for my blood. This despite me loving fluffy melodies in general and despite that there is a marked difference in tone between the first and second half. I also think you could have tinkered more with the set structure to line up the harmonies of the transitions a bit better. Considering how meticulous you'd have to be to get this 100% right, however, I can't criticize you too much for that.

I'm definitely nabbing some of these tunes later. I might manage to squeeze them in at an early evening set I'm playing at a bar on Thursday, which will be more on the slower nudisco tip, by the looks of it.

Finally got a new laptop and ready to mix! Had my first "gig" too - a NY Comic Con afterparty. Unfortunately, the people there wanted me to play more "nerd music" instead of the deep/tech/prog/future house that I'm traditionally into, so they weren't really that into it.

But yeah, I've got a few ideas on how things can go with this, time to formulate a tracklist and go and record!

Yeah, you're definitely right about it being super rich. Like eating 1 kg of chocolate mousse. If you flip through the set, it's basically just a wall of melodies, which I'm cool with and I can handle the richness but I totally understand if it would be too much for you. I never really bother mixing my sets in key since my formula is typically linear progression by energy, but this may have been one to consider. I must note that I shouldn't have really labeled any of it "retro" as the only one that qualifies is the Beckett track. Thanks for listening, glad some of the tunes worked out!

How is everyone else doing? I see Lews will be a bit late and Mr.Game+Watch and djdk have theirs on deck. How about planetaryplayer and Alphastarred? Need an update from you two.

The new deadline is technically coming up, but I will just let it expire. Just get them in before the end of the year, guys.

Honestly Ive been so busy that I just havent had the time to do anything. I think Ive only managed to touch my decks twince since September, and Ive a gig this weekend so needed to use that time to prep for that.

I do have a concept and loads of tracks all ready to purchase, just need to find the time to get it done (and listen to the other entries!).

I really wanted to be on top of this one and feel like Ive been prepping for aaages then life just went mental at the end of the summer and suddenly its fucking November lol.

I have most of the tracklist, just need to arrange it and finally do a mixdown. I hope to try and get it finished soon, sorry for the delay.

Thanks so much for the extension, Nick! Did a test run and was mostly happy with the end result, so I'll go ahead and record for real, making a few changes here and there.
