DJ Mix 035 Get Your Groove On

This is a nice groovy deep house DJ mix. I’m keen to embrace DJ technology and having made the transition to Traktor I’m trying to push myself to the limits as a creative DJ. I decided to utilise 4 Traktor FX on mix and also use the full four decks available. I synched everything up with two MIDI devices: A Vestax VCM-100 mixer and an AKAI APC-40, custom edited for decks 3&4 and the FX. To do 4 decks at once is quite a challenge and not many can carry it off; Carl Cox, perhaps, being the notable exception. For most of the mix it’s only two decks, but on occasion I brave 3 and at one stage (when the Wez G tune is dropped) we have the full four decks playing. Deep House is a style which is quite minimal and works well with a lot going on technically, though I intersperse the deep tunes with some nice housey vocals. It was a challenge to record this and although far from perfect I enjoyed making it. Hope you manage to ‘Get Your Groove On!’
