Its good to see there is discussion about Perfecto On Tour sets again. However, its also quite amazing that focus on "is it mixed by Paul?", "is it a real live set because of the story-telling in the beginning of the set and the set labelled with live date?" would be brought up from time to time.
Thanks to both jmrecillas and PvDoBseSSioN who have confirmed that Paul mixed every set himself on "Perfecto on Tour 01-50. A general overview".
Guys! If a weekly studio-mix from Paul is good enough for you, just enjoy yourselves and enjoy the sets! Forget about the labelling of the sets and story-telling part by Liquid Todd, it is just a way to remind listeners that Paul is still active in the dance music scene and still on tour. (What a nice surprise that Paul is coming to Australia for Mardi-Gras (as headliner) and Future Music Festival 2009.) Although its kind of confusing to listeners who don't know that they are studio mixes. Its really a much better way to present a radio show compared to say ASOT who reminds listeners that it is ASOT Armin... or that competitions are on to win albums or don't forget to vote...
Why not provide real review of the radio show/tracks like whether you like a particular mix of a song and for technical listeners, probably comments like "transition from "song A" to "song B" should be beat matched more" or "the transition into "song A" is cool".
I think Paul should throw in some tracks from his soundtrack work (there are some nice tracks on Vexille and Nobel Son).
Leonsv, thanks for creating this thread and keeping it alive!!!
Kenneth, glad to see your on-going participation. The way you present your Obsessions sets on your Myspace site is really cool (good quality and with full track listing). The sets are nice too. Everytime I listen to them, I would think: "When would Paul present Perfecto On Tour sets online this way?"
Thanks for the kind words brother and the positive vibes.
Glad you are digging the Obsessions sets. We are exploring ways to offer even more past shows for download beyond just the past 4. Also, we should have Obsessions up for Podcast in the next month or so.
Being that there is only a handful of us working behind the scenes with Paul on his many many projects, it is hard to cover every angle of properly promoting every project sometimes, but i agree, there's no reason we shouldn't have his sets up as well. I will run the idea by him, letting him know of the grass roots success we have had with doing this for Obsessions. There might be some contract issues with Sirius but its worth running it by him.
Thanks again for your .02
