I have been drawn to downtempo/hip hop/dnb music more and more as I grow older.
I love my chill playlist and have done mixes with those genres before. I love it when I get it right. I am thinking about adding a podcast on a bi-weekly time line.
It is much different from my usual genres that I mix. As I grow older, I think this set of genres are going to serve me well. Will I ever drop Breaks? I hope not. But, if I have a good foundation for this type of mixes, it can only help.
Also, these new genres require a much different set of skills for mixing. This shift in skill set has made my regular mixes a bit more creative. Don’t get it twisted – I get better every time I mix, but this new venture would be a great thing.
