I’m glad I read the description before listening (which I rarely do) because as a straight-remix it doesn’t really hang together — as a DJ-sampler it’s much better but thing about those are the seemless transitions and I jarred a couple of times — you know, iff-kilter type

I have the same problem with this mix that you raise—how to make the transitions more workable.

hey man, thatโ€™s a whole art form on to itself ;) โ€” itโ€™s like asking โ€œhow do I make it more jazz improvisational?โ€? the answer is the same: with years of practice.

Not at all! Thanks to you and everyone else for joinging in. I love listening to the results so much. You never know what you’re going to get, and this was not even close to an exception. Totally not what I expected from a Gurdonark track, but it was fantastic! I really would love to hear you do more mixes with this kind of direction. Much potential in that. I enjoy that almost-but-definately-not-club sound some people seem to produce. I would love to hear you flesh out some of the concepts from this track.

My only real criticisms are that the transititions felt a little rough; and it felt in some ways like it left off abruptly, as though the “theme” felt like it should transition to an outro or somehow loop to the beginning to lead out. Just some thoughts and probably just ones of taste!

Thanks for the comments. I think that I oculd have done more with the transitions and organizations here.

Hi Gudonark, I enjoyed this remix and I have to agree with porchcat: this is an unexpected surprise and it is cool that you decided to have a different/unusual approach for the remix.
Maybe this could be an idea for the next secret mixter (looking forward impatiently…)

I like the Secret Mixter process, because it requires one to stretch a bit. I am glad you enjoed the remix. It was fun to listen to all your work and assemble it.

Mysterious, very dynamic, jumpy and discontinuous at times. A cool and surprising track.

I agree, it’s too jumpy and discontinuous—thanks for weighing in on it.
