A new mix! Download it now…

Filed under: Music — decoded_ @ 12:40 am

I’ve been talking about posting up a new DJ mix for a long time. Well, I’ve finally done a new one.

This was recorded whilst I was cleaning up around the apartment last Saturday, so we’re talking long, evolving tracks joined with outro/intro mixes, nothing special there, unattentive mixing? Anyway, I’m quite happy with the flow of sounds. It turned out well considering I didn’t pre-plan this mix. It’s a bit heavy on the Stimming productions, but he is one of my favourite producers currently, along with Solomun.

Music is on the deep, melodic, epic, emotion stirring side of house, deep-house, minimal, tech-house, what ever you want to call it. Lots of realistic strings (hence the title) as well as brass sounds, it’s almost classical music with beats at times.

I’m not going to label this as a decoded_ mix, it’s musically very different from where I last left decoded_.

Will there ever be a decoded_ show 50?

Anyway, I hope you like this mix, it’s been on high rotation on my iPod the last few days, sit back and enjoy.

Here’s a link to a great article on ResidentAdvisor, about Hamburg’s Diynamic label, which features artists such as Stimming, H.O.S.H., and Solomun, and has that classical concert hall meets dance-floor sound on many of their releases.
