Elemental “February 2012”

A moody blend of music done in computer software, with a mix of old faves and freed MP3s.

Old faves, unreleased tracks that were given away by the original producers because a full release was not going to happen, and some dubbed out 4/4 beats.

Regarding unreleased tracks that were given away: the ASC remix was one of those buried in a non-release schedule, the BMT bootleg was given away on their blog in the aid of a charity, the System track had samples that couldn’t be cleared, and the dBridge track was given away because dBridge is awesome?

How is the mixing so tight? First time on a computer mix my mates. (Mixxx / www.mixxx.org)
