Lightning in a bottle, an amazing yearly festival in southern California held a mixtape contest to win a dj slot on the line up – The limitation being that you could only use artists who were booked on the line up – seeing as their curation is impeccable I thought this could be a fun challenge.

It features three distinct sections – each one representing a different style / energy. In order to make many of these songs more dj friendly I made special edits of these songs focusing on the bits I wanted to highlight for this mix. I did the mixing in Ableton Live using several midi controllers to send audio from the computer to an external tempo-synced KSP-8 digital effects processor – you can hear a number of these lush organic dub style delays and reverbs through out the mix.
