it's hard to comment in detail on a mix so big. i tried looking for a narrative line, or a textural one to explain the progression, but couldn't. the amount of ground you cover, all the various sources you grabbed music from; it's like wandering from one landscape to the next. it really is a journey though, and the tracks you chose carry themselves across genres. normally, genres are restrictive and narrow the available possibilities for mixing, but you opened them up by going so smoothly across so many. damn man, makes me wish i made something like this, too.
the first 10 tracks or so tend to drag on, so the intro isn't as crisp as it could be. and, sometimes, there is an annoying vibrato in the low-end -- really evident in Gigi Masin's Clouds (flippin' excellent producer btw, ever heard "Call Me"?).
the mixing is creative and well-placed all over, but the move from 46-51 is ridiculaaaahs.
and about track 22 - you composed this? very russian style of melody man, a lot like Eduard Artemiev. (please send it to me)
Ja, to answer your question from the other mix (haha), the low-end vibrato is a result of the compressor setting that I put on the raw recording.
Funny enough, I also noticed that it brought out a few flaws (volume/hi-hat dips, and even a few beat-matching oopsiedasies. Hahahah. (I desperately want that Radio 1 sound, though I know people around here look down upon that sort of thing.) I think the effect worked better for the last compilation.
Anyway, I haven't had time to focus on my music stuff because of school, which is over in about a week from to-day, finals and everything. Recently, I made a number of adjustments with the compressor and I significantly lowered the volume. It sounds much better now. Oh, and I also split it in two archives, instead of three.
Would like to see what others think. In any event, thanks for the feedback! Sorry I got it so long after the fact!
Oh, and right: I'll PM you a link to track number twenty-two to-morrow.
