December at Sonicrampage

So, 2011 is almost here!

Phew, what a great year it’s been here at Sonicrampage.org – a bunch of new mixes from myself, some great guest mixes, and a solid growth in pageviews have made this an excellent year, and one to build on for the future.

But the year’s not over yet, so I thought I would put in a little post to tell you what I’ve got planned for December. It’s going to be a really exciting month!

I’m planning on posting four mixes, two from myself and two guest mixes. What a way to finish the year!

Firstly, I’ve decided to post my Cold World mix, because my wife and I moved about a month ago and I’ve been so busy setting up my own company that I’ve not yet had a chance to get my decks set up:

This being the case, I’ve obviously not had the time to re-do Cold World like I said I would. Not that it really needs redoing – the mix is absolutely fucking savage and (in my opinion) possibly the best drum n’ bass mix I’ve ever done, but it has about six little skips in it from the new recording setup that I used for it. The skips were annoying, so I thought I would re-record, but since I physically do not have the setup to do so, instead I have just used Soundforge to cut out the gaps in the audio, which should make the skips less noticeable.

So, since I’m going to be putting up Cold World probably sometime next week, if you are a photographer and want to participate in the accompanying post, where I will be posting people’s favourite winter shots, now’s your last time to get them to me!

Besides Cold World, I also am planning on posting another mix by myself, probably around Christmas. Of course, to do so, I’ll need to get access to someone else’s set-up, so hopefully I can sort that out soon.

When it comes to guest mixes, I’ve got two quality mixes from two great dj’s to post this month. If you enjoyed Flip’s Freeform Mix, which I posted a few weeks back, then you’ll be very pleased to know that the man himself has found another one of his old freeform mixes for me to post, featuring classic tracks from the likes of Pain On Creation, Carbon Based, Kevin Energy, and many more. Amazing stuff!

The other guest mix is by Paul Zykotik who has given me a fantastic hypnotic techno mix. It’s been a while since this site has featured any ‘proper’ techno, so I’m very happy to have it, and if you love techno, you will too!

It’s going to be a great month, so please keep coming back to Sonicrampage. :D
