Electronic Music Exchange (House, DnB, Dubstep, etc.) - Page 277

post #4141 of 5666

Speaking of mixes, I just uploaded one this morning.   I scrapped the first couple versions because I'd think I had a good mix and I'd come back from my training and just completely hate it.  I also wanted to get some glitchop in, but I couldn't get the transitions.  They kept kicking my butt so I gave up on glitch for now but that was only because I was getting impatient and wanted this mix up now lol.

 

The flow I was going for was something like this:

Light and High Energy >> Dark >> Calming >> Mix of Light & Dark >> Light >> Smooth

 

 

Track List:

 

00:00 - Document One & DC Breaks - Take a Ride
01:49 - Vicetone - Hope
03:06 - Blue Foundation - Eyes on Fire (Zed's Dead Remix)
05:32 - DJ Madd - The Life You Chose (Decision Remix)
08:16 - Koda - The Last Stand
13:02 - Sysyphe - Pandora
16:25 - Camo & Krooked - Anubis (Inside Info Remix)
20:49 - Paperclip - Whom I Belong (place 2b & paimon remix)
23:58 - Blackmill (ft. Veela) - Let it Be
26:18 - Technicolour & Komatic (ft. Jayma) - Stay
28:52 - Dirty South & Michael Brun - Rift
31:43 - Calyx & TeeBee - Elevate This Sound
34:21 - Rameses B (ft. Veela) - Drift Away
36:44 - Submatik (ft. Charli Brix) - Tempted
38:54 - Apex - Inner Space

 

Let me know what you think of it.

^ All depends, some labels don't release their tunes to retailers for a few weeks/months/ever. I like going through Addictech and Horizons personally, but I really haven't been doing much digging. I actually signed up for a Horizons subscription service, 40 tracks through out the year of my choice for 36 bucks. And most of the tunes will not be released in their store, or other digital retailers for a few weeks. So it's cheap dubplates the way I look at it :) Love Nickbee and Amoss too. 

But as for retailers, iTunes has quite the selection and is decently priced. Juno is similar to Beatport to my understanding. I honestly just stick to Beatport and label digging when I come across one that's worth digging through.

iTunes, actually. Prices kill Beatport and 256 AAC is as good as 320 MP3. Only thing I get from Beatport are Beatport exclusives at this point. iTunes gets 90%+ of the EDM I want.

Why am I repurchasing stuff on Beatport, if that is true? I was told that 320 kbps is an upgrade.

256 AAC and 320 MP3 are equivalent IIRC. The upgrade (debateable) would be if you bought Beatport's AIFF or WAV files.

Haha, I guess I won't repurchase anything on Beatport that I orignally purchased on iTunes then..

post #4147 of 5666

I'd still recommend 320/ALAC/AIFF/WAV/FLAC if you're DJing and playing out.

HAHA this is ridiculous! You have ears for a reason, use them.

post #4150 of 5666
What do you mean by use your ears? To my ears 320 MP3 sounds better than 256 AAC. Most of my music is in ALAC but for buying eps and singles I prefer 320 MP3.

I mean exactly that. If to your ears 320 MP3 sounds better then purchase 320 MP3. Crystal clear.

If I thought FLAC sounded better (by using my ears) than 320 MP3 and someone on the internet said otherwise, I'd obviously be going off what I've heard rather than a comment on the net. Just my $0.02.

Haha ok, I shall continue to purchase MP3s off of Beatport then.

Eh. The only thing that really matters when DJing is a consistent bitrate, IMO.

 

Make sure they're ALL 320, ALL AAC, etc. Mixing is when it gets obvious if bitrates are different.
