I never thought this mix would be so popular! Thanks. I have upgraded my account so you can once again download for your mp3 player , phone or whatever.
Please do not just download and not support the artist.If you like a track you can buy it here :
The devil is in the details.
Members of a little blog I participate in put 10s together. A 10 is 10 tracks by any artist / genre and represents a fan's greatest hits, rather than a record companies choice. I am a big fan of Martin Stimming and so decided to do 10 of his tracks and mix them together. All of these tracks were purchased at Beatport as WAV files and mixed using Traktor 3 on an old school IBook.
From the bottom up : Most of the tracks seem to have a kind of shuffle tempo to them. In and amongst the rhythm are oscillating filtered dubby pops / beeps / even whistling. There is often a kind of analogue organic indigenous vibe running on top of the tracks. There is so much detail I hear new things all the time, the care and precision of this music humbles me. The guy is simply a genius.
Obviously mixing 10 tracks by the same artist is going to be pretty easy so I have tried to select tracks that are quite different and move the sound around as much as I can to avoid boredom. Some of the mixes are a bit too quick for this deep sound but others worked out a treat and if I did the mix enough times to get them all right it would sound dull and flat.
So here it is, warts and all :
1. Melodica - Stimming
2. Puesta De Sol - Alexander Kowalski (Stimming Remix)
3. 3 Days In Kazachstan - Unders Drrie (Stimming Remix)
4. Una Pera - Stimming
5. 10000 Dreams - Stimming
6. Magdalena - Stimming
7. Liberaos - Stimming
8. Bright Star - Stimming / Ben Watt / Julia Biel
9. Eiszauber - Stimming
10. Kleine Nachtmuzik - Stimming
