Not Quite a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix Episode 004 (Peaks) by Paul Oswald published on 2013/07/30 01:20:05 +0000 Wow, it's been quite some time since I have released a new mix! I've been pretty busy, but I've also spent a lot of time thinking about the DJ I am, the music I play, the reliance on Beatport Top 10 tracks, and more. I also have been working on trying to vary my transition styles and not having every transition be intro/outro so that my mix just sounds like a playlist. I think this mix shows how hard I've been working on those things and just improving as a DJ. I use a much larger track selection in a shorter time period than I have before as well less Beatport Top 10 tracks. I am beyond proud of this mix and how it turned out. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I hope you will. I really poured my heart and soul into this mix! P.S. You'll see that I added a sub-title to the name of this mix called, "Peaks". The majority of the time I spent on this mix was finding the right tracks, organizing the tracks, using a variety of vocal and non-vocal tracks as well as not clumping them together. I tried to make this mix have a series of "peaks", it would build up more and more and then come down a little before building again.
