I wasn't feeling the best this week, so I decided to lock myself in my room, and put together an eclectic group of songs to spend a moment to myself. If you're feeling a little down, hope this picks your spirits up.
Well that last experience sure was nerve-racking. I really hate the sound of own voice, some weird Australian bogan mix of Howard Stern and Peewee Herman... ergh! But if first you don't succeed..
I had to devote the next mix to my favourite of all electronic music genres, house music. So again this an exercise in experimenting in mixing. I'm using an app by Algoriddim called djay 2 for the iPad. Yes, this whole mix is done with an iPad Pro. I have no way to pre cue any of the tracks, so the beat matching is out there for all to hear. I try to mask the really bad screw ups with some voiceover. Enjoy!
From the moment I identified myself as an 'Ampersand', I wanted to reduce my fear of trying new things. Having been a lover of all things electronic music for many years, I have always been a fan of the dance floor, and a well crafted set of tunes. Friends would always suggest that I should give it a go, but was always too scared.
So here's my first official attempt at recording a set of tunes. I'd love to hear your comments.
