Raw Mixes ’21 // Spring Sesh

Reading time: 2 minutes

This was my follow-up to my Winter Sesh mix. The tone this time is more positive and energetic, reflecting both the natural spring vibe, but also optimism as we're nearing the end of the COVID pandemic. It's almost all melodic house tracks.

As for production, this was the first time using a dual-projection setup. It added a lot of color to the video and did a pretty good job downplaying my room studio. I think Whiskey & Nimbus both drop in for a visit towards the end. This was also the first time using my custom Now Playing titles that only show up for a few seconds.

Unison 6

Reading time: < 1 minute

The Ambient Mafia invited me to play at Unison 6. The two-day livestream was a benefit for the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, a non-profit strategy and action center based in Oakland, California. Together we raised over $10k to help break the cycle of disinvestment and incarceration in communities of color.

My set was pretty wacky. It's a mix of afro tech, downtempo organic house, and a little dark disco. I was the 2nd opener on a Friday evening so I tried to make it energetic for the after-work crowd while sticking to downtempo tempos.

It takes ~5 minutes to do everything, but I strongly recommended doing your first set-up at least a few days before your first public broadcast. This gives you time to solve bugs and pick up anything you need (cables, sound capture device, camera).

Let's jump in!

Saturday Night Session

Reading time: < 1 minute

I've been doing DJ mix livestreams during COVID, but this is the first one I managed to save on Twitch. The music is melodic house, melodic techno, breakbeat, and deep house. The visuals are from Pixabay. I tend to do long (>5 hour) mixes like this because I can play a variety of sounds over time. I hope you enjoy it!
