Long time ago the recording industry invented singles, the LPs, then EPs, then mixes of all kinds.
I’m trying to invent a new format. Don’t know a good name or it but let’s call it Mixle.
It’s a short piece of music, max 3 minutes, so it’s like a single. But it is open-ended, anyone could take the parts and mix it together with something else, or just use one part, or the middle, or the end, or everything with whatever they fancy. So it’s a mix thingie. Hence I call it Mixle.
Unless someone else invents a better name.
The reason something like this might take off is that people nowadays have all kinds of mixing tools, Traktor, Ableton Live, other things. It is easy to place warp points and selections to play parts. Or copy/paste things. No need to always make a 6-minute mix epos — let the DJ be the ultimate creator.
First take is here at SoundCloud . Or you could find it on the right column on this page with the SoundCloud music listed, called “What Am I Really Doing.” Maybe the name is an indication of what is happening.
Download it, do whatever you want with it. If I’m inspired I will upload more samples along the way this week.
