Balance Schmalance

Balance is important. I hear this everywhere – from people trying to sell me gym memberships to the ones trying to keep me regular with their high fibre diets. I’ve been working hard at getting my balance right. The right amount of work and the right amount of play. The right amount of sleep. The right amount of protein. It’s all a bit much really.


This month, I’ll be working on my musical balance. For the last year I have been immersed in the live music scene and have seen and worked with some truly talented artists. But the down side is that the other electronic glitchy thumping squelchy world of electronic dance has been neglected. There’s no balance and the scale its decidedly lopsided.


But that is about to change 😉


The first step was to get the right toys for the job.

  • 1 x MacBook
  • 1 x pair of Sennheiser HD202 headphones
  • 1 x Beghringer BCD3000


Now that I have these all nicely assembled, it’s time to rebuild my musical arsenal with a selection of tunes so good they’d make the pope swear out loud.. The last mix I put together was called The Swinger’s Club and was made up of killer house tracks inspired by Swing and Jazz from the 1940s and 50’s.


This time around, I’ll be pulling together my 1990’s influences from Hip Hop and RnB and fusing this with house music (of course).


The results should be…interesting.


Here’s the last mix that I put together. You can go ahead and download it if you like, or jut listen to it and let me know what you think.




Cheers,

Lester
