A-Trak - Infinity +1

listened to trizzy‘s infinity +1 today. well it’s better than his fabriclive anyway. some of it is ok, some of it isn’t great, but there’s a section in the middle that’s really special. the following section encapsulates everything i love about mixing tracks together…

7. Kid Sister “Life On TV”
8. Sébastien Tellier “Kilometer” (A-Trak Remix)
9. The Golden Filter “Solid Gold”
10. Bag Raiders “Nil By Mouth” (Knightlife Remix)
11. Holy Ghost! “Hold On”
12. DJ Mehdi “Pocket Piano” (Joakim Remix)

maybe it’s just me, but i love it when two tracks sit so well together, in key, and one just seems to grow organically from the other. whenever i put mixes together this is exactly what i try to do – i’m even working on a mix right now where if this doesn’t happen, i’m scrapping the tracks. seriously. so since the above six tracks sound so perfect together, i’m a little disappointed the rest of the mix isn’t up to that standard. particularly disappointing is the mix from siriusmo‘s housemeister remix into stuck on repeat. but i guess you can’t have it all, and if this is at all representative of a club situation there are bound to be some fluffed moments.
