Good news! As you can see (from the title of this post…) the mix has hit the 75% mark. I have to say that the mix is getting a tiny bit smaller as CD2 has been reduced to 97 tracks of which 50 has been mixed at this point… In the end I will split the mix in half so each CD will contain the same amount of tracks. Or very close to it. ;-)
Some more specifics: CD2 now measures 37m56s, 50/97 tracks mixed, dancing at 133.0 bpm. :)
Sometimes after a long day at work, creativity isn’t always with me when I get home. Even after a good meal it seems that I shouldn’t be working on C.A.C.T.P.M. Volume 9 and let it rest for another day.
The next day I seem to be unstoppable as two or three tracks are mixed in, I get to play with two songs that are on the same BPM level and key! What fun! As I did today!
Mixing CD2 is well on the way and there are now 35 tracks mixed, 26 minutes and 34 seconds in-the-mix and we’re dancing at 130.0 bpm.
So many great tracks still to be mixed… Check back for more updates. :)
I decided it was time to upload one of my older mixes from the Cocktails and Chicks: The Perfect Mix series and this time it’s volume 3 “The Summer Edition”, uploaded to Mixcloud and here you can find CD1, CD2 and CD3. Enjoy! :)
Yes! 98 tracks are now mixed in CD1 of C.A.C.T.P.M. Volume 9 and I’m working on CD2 now: 11 out of 102 are now mixed (this will probably be 99 tracks or even 98 tracks when I decide to make an outro as well. ;-)
Unfortunately not a lot of mixing the past two weeks. First a short holiday (5 days) and that wasn’t close to home so no mixing then… And when I got back home the summer was back here in Holland so I saw more sun, bikinis and booze than I saw my PC, my mixing gear and my CD’s.
Anyway, I’m really close to the end of CD1. 96 tracks are now mixed, 99 are planned (let’s say 98 tracks and an intro). The mix now measures 65 minutes and 34 seconds and the house is on at 124.0 bpm.
Check back for more updates!
Just one more thing… I will upload some more older mixes since they’re not easily available anymore…
Just another quick post… There are now 88 tracks mixed in CD1 and we’re at 122.0 bpm. Yes, there is some house as well as techno coming. :-)
Hello there fans!
YES! The mix has reached 118.0 bpm and that means dance, dance, dance ! :)
At this point there are 71 tracks mixed in CD1, 99 is the target and the mix is now measuring 47 minutes and 20 seconds!
Check back for updates.
Just a quick update…
It’s been a slow week unfortunately. But the songs I mixed this week combine nicely! At this moment 55 tracks have been mixed, it’s swinging at 109.0 bpm and the mix is close to the 38 minutes mark.
OK, the way I’m mixing CACTPM9 I’m marching straight into 45 minutes per CD so I have decided to cut the mix down to 2 CD’s containing ~100 tracks per CD. To keep the mix flowing, there’s like 30 or 40 seconds time for each song. This feels like twice a 90’s yearmix. :)
Current status: 35/1** tracks mixed, 23m56s into the mix and we’re swinging at 102.0 bpm.
OK, seems like I forgot there’s June, July, August and September before October hits the calender. Which means I have four months to complete a mix with 210 tracks in 3CD’s before I even start thinking about Yearmix 2015. Looks like it’s a 2015 release for C.A.C.T.P.M. 9. Before the annually yearmix flood is coming… :)
Hi there! Here’s another quick post. Mixing C.A.C.T.P.M. Volume 9 is well on the way!
When I look at the calender and the time I need to create C.A.C.T.P.M. 9, it will be tight to get this big one done before mixing Yearmix 2015 should start. :)
I won’t rush it. The mix has to be another special one. :D
