Hey DJs!

Its that time again... going to try for another Exclusive Mix cd so I'll have something to hand out to the masses when I happen to go out.

Heres the deal:
I'd like to have local djs submit to me some mixes that were put together exclusively for this cd...nothing special like requiring you to go out and buy all new tracks...but something thats demonstrative of you and your style, to help get YOUR name out there so that people will come back on here or your site and download your mixes.

Guidelines:

MP3 format - 160kbps max
30-60min time limit (doesn't have to be like exact...but pretty close)
Any genre
You'll need to provide a tracklist
DEADLINE - April 1st (So can start handing some out @ the April 20th show)Let me know when its completed and I can provide the upload details if you don't have them.

Last year the design was pretty slick...I'm using LightScribe cds (the ones where you 'burn' the label into the top of the cd).

Hoping to get a better response this go around... I went ahead and increased the time limit of the mix over last year since we didn't have that many djs that contributed. I know alot said they were interested but never came out with anything.... now alot of ya'll I really admire and would love to be able to host a mix, so please please contribute something!

Do you want old or new mixes? I have the electro session and an old winter prog trance mix. I'm also working on a newer one which I'll forward to you.

I made one for last years but I just never got around to uploading it with my busy work schedule. The last thing I wanted to do back then was get on the computer... lol But I'll whip something up and actually upload it this year. lol

I'll have one for you, yo. Still undecided on what style it'll be, but you'll have it by the deadline.

Quick question.....will you have them available for download or will they only be available on promo cds?

I'm having a tough enough time completing my current obligations I'm going to have to put this on the backburner and see if I can get a round tuit.

Cool cool.

well right now if i don't get enough I won't put out a cd till I do (may do another one later in the year)

if thats the case I'll put them up for download and try to come up with somethin to get more involved...

tho would think free promotion would be enough :shrug:

You have a lot of mixes for Download on this site. Why not hand out a promo MP3 CD of the latest and most popular mixes available on the site?

TeknoSounds

well originally here was the thought: have a cd to put a bunch of local artists music on...to try and get the most out of it this is best done in MP3 format. I'd made the 30min rule at the beginning becuase I thought there'd be a lot of interest in free promotion so I could fit as many of them onto the cd, and that 30min wasn't that hard of a mix to make for most djs. If you get a trance DJ thats like what....6 tracks? Most others 8-10 tracks (unless you're KDH who was getting like 17 in 30min) Didn't think that'd be that hard to throw together...just something representative of your style.

As for newest mixes...the majority of the latest ones are all from like 2 people...you and Randy heh. But definately an idea...once again tho, had hoped for more interest from the djs on this site.

So DJs? What exactly is holding you back. There are dozens of you on this site and you're all unable or unwilling to make a 30 min mix? It doesn't make sense. If you're a DJ and you actually want to play out, why would you not let Nick promote you for free?

:asskick:

inspirational! :D thx Justin

But yeah, this time around is anything from 30-60min

Little late, but I uploaded a mix that Carlos (Scorpio) & I recorded last weekend. It's short, only about 10 tracks coming to a little less than 45 minutes. The 1st 4 are his and the last 6 are mine. We were gonna keep going, but had some technical difficulties and had to cut it short.

Right On Joe.

One of these days Nick will have enough submissions to release this CD.
My mix is only 54 minutes. Nick's not asking for much guys.

This one was just a random hang out session, so there's a few rough spots, but nothing unforgivable. The tracks I played on this one are some of my favorites, but I hadn't played them in a while. I'm gonna record a new mix either tomorrow or Monday that better represents the sound I've been digging lately.

I got something I just did over the weekend. I need to EQ it and such. Might just end up hosting it here as exclusive to the site or something.

Hey Nick, I have my latest mix in my signature.

Will this work for the TS Exclusive CD?

I can personaly give you a hard copy if you want.

sorry to say but its late past my original deadline. No way to have anything ready by this weekend, much less with the like 4 mixes I received. I'm pretty saddened :( Guess none of ya'll really want free promotion after all.

I'll extend accepting mixes till end of June to have out for near the TS Anniversary...but if I don't get at least 10 more mixes I'm going to just make the tracks available via the web and not do the CD. No point in wasting my $.

@Chris, sure I'll accept it, however I'll have to convert it from your m4a to mp3...have a recommended program? That format is new to me :p

Hmmmm, Im new to it myself. I used mydatabus.com for uploading. However it has its up and downs with Bandwith......
