Since I was going to be playing tracks everyone knew, I wanted to mix them in an interesting way.
Not everyone . Going in I was only familiar with two of the tracks (and it doesn't take a genius to figure out which), though I did recognize several more of the artists.
This set was almost perfect, in my opinion. The flow was fucking impeccable, the songs were utterly fantastic, and the transitions were almost as smooth as can be. Definitely great mixing.
The reason it was only almost perfect was that the transition from Aero Plane to Saturn and Multiverse to Melodica were both a little jarring. Aero Plane to Saturn lasted about half a second, it was just the two vocal samples on top of each other was a little off-putting, but then it went away immediately. I really can't explain what was weird with Multiverse to Melodica, it just made me slightly uncomfortable for about ten seconds after the first vocal sample from Melodica played. The rest of both of those two transitions were marvelous, though, like all of them.
Still, those two minor complaints aside, I fucking loved the set. And it's under 80 minutes, so I can burn it for car trips! Gave it three listens over the weekend, will give it many more in the future. Great work, mate
