Songs you can't mix

Post by Terpit » Sat Nov 17, 2012 1:56 pm

Everyone has these right?

I've given up with Silkie - Purple Love



It just doesn't happen, good tune tho.

And Mensah - The Gambia



The intro throws me off every time.

just skip it on until the hats come in, it probably confusing cos the kick/bass is not on the first beat, but the 16th hats start one 1

Roll With The Punches. I can mix it, but it never sounds "right".
and (not a specific tune but) I can't mix grime for shit. recently tried to do a mix for a friend's blog. gave up after 4 tries and just did a dungeon one.
but then again, I'm shit.

can't really think of any dubstep off the top of my head, but I've had this record for fucking ever and it still gives me trouble!

Probably cos it's something like 147 bpm, but it's not too bad once it's slowed down enough.

Kahn remix of gun talk... Cannot decipher intro...

Also coki intros, not all but a lot...

used to find sia litttle man hard to mix and wookie run away always gave me fucking problems. few tracks on wookies album give me shit. i had the album sampler first the 2 red soul2soul and a few of the tracks are proper hard due to the funky intros. peps who know wookie know what i mean. think i'm gonna have to dig out all my wookie tomorrow and do a mix. in my opinion wookie is probly best garage producer. wookie was just way way way ahead of his time.
as some1 else said i sometimes find it hard as fuck mixing some grime.
aint really mixed much in last year or so, maybe once a week if that and i seem to have forgotten what goes with what and what don't.
too much weed i thinks.
