I'm reaching out my comfort zone this week...
I recorded a live hour-long mix of some of Seduction City's best songs, plus a few surprises, and am broadcasting it this week. I attempted to make it a seamless continuous mix and the results were...er...what's the word to describe an amateur doing something? Ah yes...amateurish. I have a PhD in amateurish.
My goal is to make this a semi-regular thing, only it won't be regular like once-a-week or once-a-month. It will be like once-whenever-I-feel-like-it because thought and effort does go into it. Even though it would be eminently easier to just put this thing together using an audio editing program (i.e. Audacity) I felt like there was something cooler doing it as as a "live" mix. Plus it makes me feel like an actual DJ even though I am not and never will be close. The tradeoff is that it is a freewheeling thing -- it doesn't have the polish I'd might like and is definitely improv'd. Luckily I enjoyed some "happy accidents" in the process and some of the seques turned out quite smooth an very nice, and I wouldn't be able to replicate if I tried. Regardless, the music holds its own regardless of the inept mixing, and I hope everyone will enjoy something in it.
