back from a fantastic night out in manchester with the erosion boys, marcel fengler and the seldom felt crew. i have some thoughts coming out of all that, which i plan to write about soon. for now i just wanted to share with you this mix i put together last weekend. if you've heard either of the other two mixes i've posted online before, you'll have a fair idea of what to expect: deep, emotive techno sounds focused on the heart and mind, rather than the feet. an important differences, though, is that i have developed a much better sense of how ableton works now, so this mix is a lot cleaner in terms of both mixing and sound quality. this mix occupies a roughly similar location on the sound seascape (i think sound seascape is actually more accurate as a crappy analogy than sound landscape), but i think the feeling is definitely lighter - no doubt a reflection of my slowly changing mood. the picture accompanying it is one i took the other week on the coast of wales. while at first it may look a bit bleak, i find it uplifting. i am happy and proud of this picture, and the mix too. i'll put the tracklist in the comments section so it is your choice if/when you have a look at what the mix is composed of. all records are left at original speed and the mixing is basically just laying, but that is all that is necessary for my purposes.

from my techno heart to yours.
