teshno is two this month and i wanted to do something special to celebrate. ‘what better than to do my own mix’ i thought. that was about four months ago. i’ve never done such a thing ever before but, in various stages over the last weeks, i have faded, slammed, disharmoniously mixed and fluked together a collection of tracks which didn’t clash too horribly. that said, they all convey the sort of vibes i like in my music… emotion, looseness, warmth, texture. hell, some might even make you want to tap your foot.
the one hour nine minute mix was put together on a basic piece of pc software so shameful i shalln’t name it, pulled apart again and variously re-built, all the while with me learning things you can only learning about mixing if you actually put your hand to it. along with many other things some levels are out, there’s no real narrative (think of it more as a mix-tape) but i’ve found it a rewarding – if not at times dark – experiment, and hope you do too.
