My First Mix

I've dreamed about doing a mix for a long time and here it is! Be kind, it's my first :). It's probably not quite Global Underground quality but I'm pleased with it. The style is mostly progressive house, although the last song is probably a departure from that.

Bastardization

These are some of my early attempts at altering music. Some of my attempts are pretty simple and some involved a few days work as I was learning the effects and nuances of various audio effects. I made most of these around the year 2000, or even earlier, so my tool set was even more limited than it is now.

Pachelbel, Johann - Canon (Humpty Edit)
This is, I have to say, my best creation I've done. It's a retake on Pachelbel's Canon in D. Technically it was fairly simple to make as I used midi tools to change the instruments used and this change constitutes the majority of the work involved. I did change some of the notes around in the actual midi file which kind of adds my own little touch to it.

There's a nice dreaminess to it that I really love. I did this around 1999 or 2000 and even now I still love listening to it. Not every remix effort has to involve gargantuan changes to the original source song I've learned. Sometimes taking a simple idea and incorporating it throughout the song can produce nice results.


Compilation CDs

These are 2 minute samples of compilation CDs I've, somewhat, recently made. They reflect the current type of music I'm into: progressive house, progressive trance. I stopped making compilation CDs because I'm really eyeing making my own DJ mix set; I want to put all the individual songs together and make something new out of it.

Proggy - My first attempt

Proggy 2 - Gettin' better

Proggy 3 - My last and latest attempt, I experimented with crossfading with this one
