When I construct a mix, I usually have about six months of new songs banging around in my head. I don't always strive for the newest of the new - sometimes I'll hear an amazing song and a year will go by before I find a place for it in a mix.The transitions between tracks are just as important to me as the tracks themselves. I had some early trouble with clunky mixes between great songs in this mix - Ableton Live saved the day, as always.Ultimately, my goal is to assemble a group of songs that inspire me and humble me; songs that reveal something new even after dozens of listens. I want to be able to hear these tracks in a club, a car, or someone's living room at 3pm after a warehouse party.
