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.

My best guess is that it was intended as a vehicle for board members to recommend mixes they'd listened to and enjoyed and that had been done by other board members - not as a platform for board members to decide for themselves that one of their mixes was their 'best' and therefore hype a link to it.

I took it as the latter and I can see most others have also.

For what it's worth, I've enjoyed as much of this mix of your's as I've listened to - it's playing again now

Cheers and thanks for the SC comment

smashdad wrote:

but my question still stands - most people who post links here use the separate threads in the main Forum - some use the woeful ''best mixes' thread - I was genuinely curious why you'd done both

Because eventually this thread will drop off onto page 2 and beyond unless I keep 'bumping' it to keep it on page 1. It will be more likely that existing board members and those new to this board will scroll through the 'best' sticky to find the best mixes posted by members so I hope they catch it there.

smashdad wrote:

Just curious Gillactico - why do you post links to your mixes on separate threads AND on the 'Best Mixes of Board Members' thread?

I'll leave you to think about the 'concept' behind that 'sticky' thread and maybe you'll answer your own question.

Definitely a great year. Some top tracks in your 30. Mine is 21 tracks in 2 hours and we have NONE of the same tracks except 3 where I picked a different remixer to you. I could easily have stretched to 30, it was very hard to cut out some of the tracks I really liked but they just weren't in the right key for that part of the mix so didn't flow for me and I wanted to keep it to 2 hours.

I missed it too at the time but I emailed Mike Griego and he told me himself to get it off myfreemp3.com

lol Did he email that, are you sure? lol I thought he work for Zippy. smile

It was an unofficial/unreleased remix with maximum 100 downloads on his Soundcloud page (he must have a basic account) but I got there too late so he told me to go find it elsewhere
