Maybe we should stop with the tracklists? Seems to take some of the fun out of it. Maybe that's too snobbery. Just saying, if you don't know "Sweet Baby James," that's not our fucking fault, right?! Ha.

i hear you, jack. i think keeping the fun in it was one reason for withholding the tracklist for a short time. better not to let the names and such saddle the mix with too many pre/mis-conceptions. better to let it stand on its own, at least for the first listen.

but, once that "blindfold" test has passed, i've got nothing against pointing people to good music when they want to find it.

you remind me that i used to play music for my friends - and still do - and would pretty much refuse to reveal who it was until they had listened at least some ways into it.

Great mix. It reminds me of Coldcut at their best. How the hell did you coordinate 6 DJs to do one mix though. I'm imagining quite a bit of elbow shoving.

thanks, steppa.

no doubt - it was a challenge to coordinate such a massive collaboration. we haven't really gone into the details yet of how we did it, but let's just say that there was a bunch of initial mixing that we did together in the same room and then a bunch of asynchronous edits and additions that we all performed subsequently. in the end, we're pretty happy that it comes off so seamless.

maybe someday (soon?) we'll make the process more transparent. i'm dying to offer a "standalone" of part of my bit, so i'll be revealing that much soon.
