BMC spinning Tunes - Jam For A While - A Modern Roots 45s Session

Now for something completely different. Instead of mixing a set of pre-recorded tunes on the computer, as I did with all my previous mixes, I decided to just spin some tunes and record straight from the line-out of my mixing panel. No fancy riddim-transitions (just some fading in and out), no cutting parts out of tunes for the nicest flow, no effects, just the vibe of the moment: turntables turning, tunes at hand and see where it goes. I always loved the way I made my mixes, but it is very very time-consuming and, as expressed, didn't feel like worth all the effort anymore. This could be a way in which I might still drop some mixes every now and then, since the time it costs is basically the actual recording time and I can still play some tunes I rate for the interested listeners. Might be less appealing to some, others might in fact enjoy the idea. Whatever it is, this is it for now. I did a trial-run with some modern roots 45s (not really a prepared setlist, just randomly picking from the boxes), little over 35 minutes for now and got enough encouragement from the people to go ahead and upload it, so here it is: hear me Jam For A While. If this goes down well, I will over time try to record more in various styles of JA music, but possibly a bit more prepared than this time (still loving the tunes though!!). smiling smiley

Thanks Randys!

No, not doing the download option anymore, gave me too much trouble in the past. Sorry.

Will be making a classic 70s roots set soon too, to accompany this modern one.

BMC spinning Tunes - Strickly Rockers - A Classic 70s Roots 45s Session

"Here comes another brand new musical disc called Rockers!" A few days ago I introduced a for me new way of recording a mix: spin tunes and record it live, straight from the line-out of my mixing panel. The first trial set was with some modern roots tunes. Enjoyed it and liked the response of listeners, so wanted to try a next, more serious thing to accompany that one: a one hour set of 70s roots 45s. Picked a heavy selection and gave it a try and this is it! Heavy and wild. Most interesting challenge was the playing of the A and B side of the same 45 and in the transition (flipping the 45) play a soundsample from a next 45. Mostly worked out quite well I think, for a first attempt, so I at least am satisfied and like to share with you. Above all, the music, it's wicked and it's ROOTS!

Play, like, share! Make the people hear the roots!

Can you identify the Marley riddims used here??? :-) After Jam For A While and Strickly Rockers here's a third mix in my 'new' style: spin some tunes and record straight from the line-out of my mixing panel. No fancy riddim-transitions, no effects, just the vibe of the moment: BMC spinning Tunes! Topic for this one became modern takes of Marley riddims, an idea I got after spinning the opening track: Big Youth's We No Want No War. Limitation was simple: vinyl singles only, so there's quite some obvious ones missing which I don't have on vinyl (and some I've used in mixes before). Instead some less obvious ones included and an overall nice vibe throughout. I continued with the trend of starting with a Big Youth tune, always a pleasure. Enjoy (and sorry for the small mistake in the Lukie D tune, haha)!
