Mathsmix20150212

Artist: DJ Noggin
Title: Mathsmix20150212 (Full mix)
Album: Full Mixes
Date: 2015
Part 1

The funny thing about this mix is that I started trying to figure out a formula I could use to quickly resample songs so they would mix together, because I wanted to make mixes fast, programmatically. I sort of started guessing (educated guesses you could say) what the formula would look like, and actually got pretty close on the first go…though I was able to refine the formula to make it more universal.

Anyway so I made this mix in Audacity using some new flacs I had ripped from vinyl and my newly discovered formula for beatmatching.

A week later Audacity released a new version that included the ability to do this formula built-in. I thought that was pretty cool.

This mix includes hits from, but not limited to:
Dub Taylor
James Blake (thanks Kyle)
The Rip-Off Artist
Heiroglyphic Being
etc, etc…

Rad bych s tebou tancil.
Believe it or not, when I was working as a DJ, I was making mixes like crazy.
I made this mix to kind of sum up my nights at Tulip Cafe. I was working the 9pm to 7am shift which means you play a lot of damn music and you cover every genre imaginable. The waitress there Monika was always really cool and really dug the music – made my drinks real strong. My buddy Pavel was also a big fan of what we were doing, so this mix was like my thank you to them.
Pavel, see you soon.
Monika, where are you?
And if all goes according to plan (o’Hare!!!!), I should be in this mixes homeland as it’s being posted.
Více Basu!

It’s not too early in the week to party, right?
This one grew out of proposition to ‘dj’, indirectly, again, a Halloween party happening in Waco. I prepared the mix beforehand, then Jared and I headed to Waco to meet my sister at Georges, head to a party near campus, get kicked off the doorsteps of the girls dorm, then finally head down to Houston I believe for an a capella band concert?! Hell of a time.
This one is very college-coed friendly with the hits and some 80s and some Hip Hop and some Noggin remixes / edits to spice it up.
This track includes hits from, but not limited to:
Genesis
Eminem
New Order
Miss Kittin and the Hacker
INXS

Take note cause this is probably about as close as I’ll get to recording a Christmas track.
The other day while ripping the wonderful John Fahey Christmas record to computer, I started seeing what I could do with it using the mixer and a delayed (thanks soundcard latency!) version of the signal. These are the short snippets I managed to catch to tape, edited together audacity time-line style.
To clarify, these are live manipulations of the John Fahey record.
Merry Xmas.

A C I D

Happy Birthday Charlie. I wrote this song for Charlie cause he was like a huge reason I got into this music in the first place. He needed a theme song and we were both brought up on high-energy and psuedo acid/rave sounds out of Europe. As such, this is the most dj-friendly tune I’ve ever done, I think. The casual listener might be a little put-off by the twelve-inch-ness of it, buildups and whatnot, but to my dear fellow DJs, please take this one and run with it.
All Buzz.
Did I mention acid?

I’m not doing my show this week (thanks Gary!!!), so here is the show I covered last Thursday for Coby. This is the Rock Formations show, which is supposed to be all rock music. This is unusual for me, as my shows either go from country and branch out to electro and all points in between, or are purely vintage country. This show was a welcome chance to play stuff that might not sound as good at 6 in the morning.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
Clutch
Atari Teenage Riot
And The Bass Kicks The Drum
Smile Transylvania
Journey
etc, etc…

Had a good time this am. Got there early! I’m still loving this Larry Joe Taylor guy so you get to enjoy him some more. I’m doing the country show again tomorrow, so if you are into that, it’ll be up here tomorrow.
ps. NERD ALERT: I always thought these files sounded…’phasey’ (very technical term). Anyway, turns out that one of the channels (left or right) is wired up backwards, and that’s making the recordings sound ‘thin’, ‘washed out’, ‘phasey’…I was able to fix it for the second hour, and I will try to fix these from now on, until I can get the station engineers to re-wire the record output.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
Kid606
Chris Catalena
Erykah Badu
Bonnie Rait
Average White Band
