Fresh Mix To Kickoff 2013: “New Beginning”

I usually try and create a new mix right around the new year to share some of the new artists I’ve discovered with friends.

I set aside the first day of 2013 to do just that — and found some amazing releases on Beatport that just begged to be mixed. It’s in my usual downtempo /chill out style but a few good moments of energy too.

This was created in Ableton Live which is the perfect tool for making mixes and getting creative with adding vocals, cutting up different parts of tracks, adding, FX, etc. I still think making mixes on turntables is more fun, but you can do a whole different style in Live which works well for making eclectic downtempo compilations.
