Some of his other tracks to definitely check out:

 

You Got To Go (Seven Lions Dubstep Remix)

All Alone (Seven Lions Remix)

Seven Lions - Below Us

All I Know (Seven Lions Remix)

I Don't Deserve You (Seven Lions Remix) [Radio Edit]

 

+1. My favorite songs have to be his Days Turn into Nights remix, On My Way to Heaven remix, the I Don't Deserve You remix, and Fractals. Moombahton > "trance"-dubstep > "trance"-dubstep > electro-house, respectively. Is the I Don't Deserve You remix still classified as dubstep by the way? Has both breakbeats and four on the floor elements to it.

The On My Way to Heaven mix is probably my favorite of his.

I'm at a bit of an impass in my music buying. I can't decide whether I should buy the tracks that I can't get on cd in a WAV format off Beatport, in 320 MP3 off of Beatport, or 256 AAC off of iTunes... The differences aren't probably huge, but I always want the best listening experience possible. Buying off of Beatport is pricey to begin with but upgrading to wav or aiff can take the price to almost $3 a track, compared to iTunes $.99 or $1.29. Can somebody please persuade me either way?


Also Feed Me's new EP was great! I also purchased Dillon Francis' Bootleg Fireworks and I have to say, if you're into his sound, it's amazing!

Formats are a matter of great debate. I'm not going to get into that debate this time, but you may want to compare prices at Google Play as well. All of their stuff (or everything I've seen) is 320 Kbps CBR MP3, so it would be a good idea to check their pricing if you are interested in that format. They always have some stuff on sale, so it's worth comparing. They also store all of the stuff you buy from them in the Cloud, so it is backed up online and you can access it from anywhere.

I've been buying iTunes exclusively for awhile now due to Beatport's outrageous prices.

If you want to look at it in a big picture...My Beatport wish list as of last year was about...1500 USD. I transferred it all into iTunes and my iTunes wish list is less than a grand. Basically over the course of a year iTunes could have you 600 bucks depending on how much you buy.

I've been using beatport but every purchase ends up having some discount code haha.

 

Like.... http://www.retailmenot.com/view/beatport.com

lol I've done this a few times, as well as being on their mailing list I get codes that way, boxing day for example was 25% and every other time has been between 15-20%

 

I won't get into formats but I prefer 320 because it's cheaper, I don't use Ableton, and 320 is a happy medium between storage and quality. I'd LIKE lossless, but every outlet charges extra for it, and I can't afford that if I'm spending so much on audio equipment haha.

I would like to save the money by iTunes, but I don't want to ever feel like I'm missing out by not having a lossless copy. 

 

Apo0th3karY, can you mix with 256 AAC? 

 

I'll go check out Google Pay, my father has music stored in the cloud there.

post #4208 of 5748
tbh, I dont know a whole lot about aac, just that its Apple's proprietary compression format. I'm sure its just as good if not better than 320, but for djing, I wouldn't use anything other than 320 or lossless.
post #4209 of 5748

Hmm, I'm still undecided on it, but I'll make up my mind eventually. Google Play has some great deals, some albums cost less there then they do on iTunes, yet they are 320 MP3. Makes me wonder if they are the same quality as Beatport.

256 AAC is equivalent to 320 MP3 as far as I know. So iTunes, Google Play and Beatport should be the same. Just buy a few in multiple formats, ABX and decide. I think it matters very little for Electronic music.

Some people will tell you there's a differenence between either of these and lossless and some will tell you it's BS. Only way to know for sure is to ABX it yourself.

I think I shall stick to iTunes. I'll rip my CDs in ALAC and I'll still download all the free MP3s I can get my hands on! smily_headphones1.gif

 

Back on topic, has anyone subscribed to any of the labels on last.fm? I'm tempted to sign up for OWSLA the Nest but after Skrillex's new ep there hasn't been anything that great . The Nest reminds of Boysnoize Records sublabel BNR TRAX, which release not so well known producers' works.

Heres my latest mix. 1 hour of groovy pumpin Psy-Trance.

 

Check it out!

post #4213 of 5748

I'll check out your mix soon. I'm always interested in hearing some good psy trance. 

 

Anyways, I'm not sure how aware people are of this one, but it's a masterpiece of an album. I can only think of two 'concept' albums by edm producers off the top of my head, and Mala in Cuba is one of them.

Very nice! Brings me back to Eclipse Festival 2010. I like the pacing, something i need to work on in my sets. 

 

I have a love/hate relationship with psytrance. It can be very well done, and some of the DJs are really good at what they do, but when it comes to being able to listen to it for more than a night, I can't. When i went to Eclipse I had so much fun the first night, second night I was a wreck, so I definitely had fun haha. By the third night though, I had only heard 3 dubstep DJs, and one glitch hop DJ, and no dnb. I knew what I was getting into when i was going to a psytrance festival, but I didn't think I'd get bored haha.

EDIT: So I don't make a third post. Get out your bassiest, most detailed cans.... This one's a treat. This is the closest cross over drum and bass - psy trance track I've heard. I might only be saying that because of Ksef10's set I just listened to, but holy this is great.

Far out, Calibre is really doing it for me recently. He's really good at liquid.
