Mini-Mix 010 (2010.02.07) [Tech House]

without comments

UPDATE: decided to free up space on soundcloud by removing this mix, sorry!

01. Matteo DiMarr – Drumbotto (Original Mix)
02. Nicky Romero – My Friend (Original Mix)
03. Jon Flores feat. David Rodrigu – Moovin (Original Mix)
04. Black Raw – Jetlag (Club Mix)
05. Funkagenda – H3lix (Original Club Mix)

The main point behind this mix was to try some Tech House mixing using my latest production tools. So there’s enharmonic mixing, sidechain compression during transitions, and use of the few mastering filters that no matter how much I hear them they don’t get old yet 😛 (e.g. bootsy’s amazing work, elephant, and har-bal).

[Electro House] Caustik – Synapse (Original Mix)

without comments

I’ve produced a new Electro House track titled “Synapse” — this was put together using Ableton, original melodies, and a few of my new synth and compressor toys.

[Electronica] Caustik – Juice Box (Original Mix)

without comments

This one is pretty much just ear candy, busy with synths and a very pop/classic 4 chord progression.
