DJ Stompy Robots!

Yesterday I recorded my first mix - a bunch of house tracks imaginatively entitled 'House Mix 1'. I picked house because it's easy to mix. No, you don't get to hear it - I'm going to let it percolate for a couple of days to see if I still like it first. Meanwhile, I'm on to music that actually stirs me, today being all about the psy, and already I'm feeling a bit of passion for this.

Yep, I got the skin issue sorted, and the headphone problem was, as expected, related to my own lack of knowledge about configuring hardware. But now I know! Yay! I should have a few sets sorted for Kiwiburn so if I don't get chased out after the first one for being tone deaf or something, we'll be good to go.

I just have to remember to look at the audience* every now and then so they know I'm alive.

Hmm. I am discovering an intense liking for tracks that remind me of stompy robots.

Also, rikan_feral, please point me in the direction of that Deadmau5 track. You know the one.

* This assumes there is one, of course.

PS I need a better headphones shot - although my Sennheiser PX100s would definitely go with the extremely minimal look!
