had this on in the office this avo while doing a load of boring quotes - this has helped it pass by much more pleasantly....lovely mood/flow and some really nice tunes in there......not sure if it's this mix or problems with S/C and work but it keeps cutting out/stopping which is being a pain in the arse having to re-start it

Thanks Chuffer - this flowed well when it came together. I think it was probably a Soundcloud buffering issue as I know the mix is fine.

Any update on a downlink link Gallactico

However, I did notice the sound was a bit crunchy around Dubfire and BOg. I think that's my limiter being pushed when I mastered it, so I better re-render and upload it again before I enable the download button. Thanks.

Reet enjoyed this Gillactico.

Well paced with some real bang to it too.

Thanks Smallman, interesting it came across with some real bang to it as the whole mix is only a well paced...122bpm.

I prefer it slower, so it chugs along.

...enjoyed the deeper/darker first hour on this, Gillactico, nicely put together dude

Thanks L, some nice moody stuff came out last year. I was digging a lot of tracks on those labels and mixes by Alex Niggemann and Justin Massai which influenced my direction... Check 'em out for more of the same.

Happy New Year!

Thank you for sharing mate - I'm shit at remembering track names but listening to it through and rescanning the t/list I'm struck by how SO many, good, different, 2015 'review' mixes have been put together, this one definitely included, based on tracks that I completely missed!  I reckon I've got three of the above, maybe two - not 100% sure!  Really good mix though and right up the alley of most on here I would've thought...

I thought the same thing this year. I think Homegrove and I had none of the same tracks except 2 different remixes. One of the main objectives of putting a mix together in my view is still to introduce people to new music, something even harder to do on a 'best of' mix, so great you've discovered some new records. Thanks.

Had a proper listen. This mix is smooth as silk, some top tunes throughout and brilliantly mixed and programmed. I usually avoid anything with Guy J's name in it, but this all worked well together. Well played Gillactico!

Thanks Mills, worthwhile when others appreciate the technique as well as the track selection. Some top tracks from the usual suspects last year plus found a few hidden gems.

I know what you mean about Guy J, even though I'm a fan it's like an EDM DJ putting a Guetta track in their pop mix, feels a bit dirty like you're cheating. However, a great remix on the excellent microCastle and a moody original that was low key on Mantzur's Plattenbank. His best work last year, I didn't love the album to be honest. Both tracks just fit right in but how good is that Brian Cid track in the middle? Stormer!

Innit mate...

I couldn't agree more but be aware, based on my experience, there are some on here who may now attempt to ridicule you for posting that...

I would say if you're doing mixes to get feedback from this rabble you're doing them for the wrong reason - and expecting people to appreciate your mix's harmonic qualities is never going to happen, trust me. 

But collectively we've all become spoilt cunts - click a link, listen for two hours and move on - some people feel so fucking entitled they even moan if they can't download to listen as it suits them - and when it's heard and finished they move on - why else do you think my latest series of mixes is called 'Short Shelf Life' - I've posted nine of them on here in the last five months and I've had feedback from precisely four people!

There's half a dozen or so people who post mixes on here and seem to try and listen to others and feedback when they have - a small handful who don't post their own mixes but will listen and feedback and countless dozens of others who are serial hit-and-run merchants.

FWIW, I've enjoyed the first 20 minutes or so of your mix and I'll do the rest of it tomorrow...  smile

My comment was sarcastic and tongue in cheek but it seems to have sparked a healthy debate regardless, plus the listens and comments I was hoping for so thanks.

I don't get much time myself but when I do, I try and listen to other board members mixes and comment whenever I can; Erik B, Matt Black, Homegrove and others but can't remember names right now. I'll give your 'Short Shelf Life mixes a whirl next. Cheers.

Tickets bought.

Anyone mentioned Breeder - Carnival XIII yet? tongue

All electronic artist albums were quite disappointing, therefore...

David Gilmour - Rattle That Lock

Top track: 'In Any Tongue' - guitar solo very classic Floyd.
Also, his Royal Albert Hall show was the best gig of 2015.

Yes, soon. Thanks

For anyone who's looking to break that mind block about how to compose, construct and mix a track (don't worry about mastering, let the pros do it for you, it's like £30), I recommend buying all Timothy Allen's videos on groove3.com and Olav Basoski's videos on macprovideo.com. They will seriously accelerate your learning. Most are Ableton live (which I personally recommend) and others like mixing are in Logic (great for mixdowns but theory can be applied in any DAW). Look out for regular sales on both sites and don't buy at full price. I highly recommend.

Bloody brilliant night! Loads of old faces, friends I've been going to Bedrock with for 15 years, and a great crowd I was with! Not too busy or hot, easy to get served at the bar, no nonsense at the cloakroom, still love Heaven it's where Bedrock belongs. Had a quick chat with Diggers outside before he came on and a very funny chat with Howells upstairs later in the night, what a funny and lovely bloke. I didn't last past 4:30 unfortunately but can't push to 7am anymore! Not in my top 5 Bedrocks but probably in my top 10.

Props to the lighting guy, the lasers were immense! Here's my video of C12 - Judy...

Hope Bedrock stays at home and more frequently.

Way Out West - The Fall (Bedrock Remix from Digweed GU019 with the long breakdown)

Probably my single best Heaven dance floor moment too. Would have loved it if John played this on Sunday night. I would have seriously lost my shit.
