Climbing out the Murk

So here’s my first real entry since the whole blogger fiasco. I still want to convert everything to wordpress but for the effort I got the old template working with some strange google domain name service redirection magic to subdomains. That’s probably more then any good security expert would divulge, but I believe I’ve lost many of my readers anyhow at this point. A lot has happened in the past couple years. It’s going on 2 years since my son was born, and it was a good 9 months before that where we were preoccupied with newfangled life experiences. It’s…

Potential Remixes

Here’s some tracks with potential for remixes: Jason Derulo – Watcha SayBritney Spears – WomanizerDeadmau5 – Ghosts N StuffI Remember – Deadmau5 & KaskadeRon Reeser & Dan Sanz ft Myah – EverythingBassboosa – Wicked Game I’m especially a fan of remixing remixes with originals, a la new verse with old refrain, or mix in an additional verse from the old version with the new background. and here’s a couple other guilty pleasures I couldn’t resist:Owl City – FirefliesLMFAO – I’m In Miami BitchMickey Avalon – My Dick

>Randy Boyer’s New Track

>Randy Boyer just came out with a new track:Randy Boyer & Kristina Sky (ft Cari Golden) – No Limit – check it out if you’re a fan of trance / dance. I’ve also seen a couple remixes of his around like this one for darude. I originally heard about Randy Boyer from a friend at work, another fellow aspiring DJ he was impressed with Randy’s style of trance. He introduced me and I caught a show this winter at room 960 in the middle of a blizzard (which s the start to any great story in New England). It was…

>Baby Got (Music) Back

>Oh… so nice. I just re-downloaded much of the old music I had purchased off iTunes. iTunes finally went full DRM free – 256k, not the best but almost. 320k is the most you can get normally and most pop tunes won’t fill that bandwidth on VBR (variable bit rate – adjusts the size to fit how complicated the music is). In any case there were a lot of tracks I had lost when the mac harddrive originally went – I had backed it up but I hadn’t gotten them all. At the time Pepsi was doing their promotion. 1…

>Another Mix

>Here’s another mix I did a few months back, realized I hadn’t posted it or added it to the net yet – it was still sitting on my work computer and my old MP3 player. So check it out – I had mixed it up a while ago but since I had recorded of sirius it had a couple dead spots, I’ve done my best with this version to blend the dead spots out, you can probably still hear them, but this mix would be top notch if not for those IMHO. =) Morgan Page – The Longest Road (WijiX…

Another Year or So…

This year’s birthday spoils:– iPod Nano– Novint Falcon– NFS Undercover– BF2142 Deluxe (for the living room PC) I ended up working half a day today, spent the 2nd half being productive and hanging out with the dog. I went and got my winter tires off the car, I think we’re safe for snow. If it comes now I just won’t go anywhere 🙂I spent that time waiting listening to my iPod – I was totally that guy in the store with the iPod on. I meandered around Home Depot, looking at some bathroom stuff, and I found a fence I…

>Mixxy Mixxy

>Here are a few mixes I’ve done as of late:Anavan – The Perfect Sound (WijiX SoundOff Mix) [listen] The Veronicas – Untouched (WijiX Touché Mix) [listen] Lady Gaga – Just Dance (WijiX MiX) [listen] I also have a pretty awful session [listen] where I started playing with my new XSessionPro. It’s the first time I’ve been able to mix between two MP3s… now if I only had a second audio card on the laptop so I could listen to the cue.

BBB

Here’s an old one, one of my first live on the deck using pre-recorded, pre-equalized background. Lame 70s Rock + Speed + Re-dub + Scratch = Lame fast 70s rock sped up, re-dubbed, and scratched quietly! Original – Shaun Cassidy – Baby Baby Baby

DJ Software

I’m asking for a USB mixer for XMass so I can mix my MP3s together.I’m a bit concerned how it does the BPM matching. I’d really like to have a dial to adjust it for either so I can do it manually – but just as I feared this I ran into the following (Free) software: Zulu DJ Mixer by NCH Software Please donate while you’re at it since it’s currently free and really great. There are many options, drag and drop files to load them, then drag them to either A track or B track – you get a…

>Cicada Ramada

>I was practicing some scratching this evening – have a listen…Cicada Ramada (50% VBR 10mb)Cicada Ramada (320k Constant 25mb)(a la roach motel) I cut it up a bit… I’m thinking my hard drive needs a defrag because right as I was hitting it up style the recording goes all wanky. In any case most of it was still good so I got creative with what I had.
