alright, here goes gang. i finally managed to nail down a set of songs after a ridiculous number of iterations. I decided early on to limit myself to just my most recent acquisitions -- a 40gb subset of music from the last year -- to try to force some discovery. the resulting effort that went into this only further proves that i've been asleep at the wheel since I stopped posting regularly.
i wanted to stay true to the mixxclub conventions, so I composed everything in iTunes, using the built-in 12-second crossfade and minor track clipping to create transitioning. To download the complete mix in a .zip archive and listen to individual tracks in the included playlist, right click here and "Save as..." It's nearly 100MB, so it'll take a minute.
if you subscribe to the Radioredcontroldeck podcast, then you'll already have this playlist available in podcast-form in iTunes. The episode was created using iTunes and Audiohijack and includes chapter markers and artwork. Click here to subscribe.
