The Mix by Mix Project
Don't you ever get that feeling...you know, that you wished there was some kind of time machine? A way to put the stress and worries of every day life behind you for brief moment, and enjoy the careless days of your youth ones again?
Unfortunately there is not yet such a machine, at least not as far as i know. But i do know that hearing the music from 'the good old days' can bring back the sweet memories from the past. That was what i had in mind when i created the "Mix by Mix" project; appointing myself as a kind of "time traveler", using music as my virtual time machine. By mixing the music, i try to create a trip down memory lane.
A friend of mine heard about my project, and asked me if i'd be willing to produce some mixes in this style for his online radio station. The restriction was that they should, for technical reasons, be limited to a maximum of 30 minutes per mix. That is how the signature sample "mix by mix - 30 minutes of non-stop mixing" was introduced, which has since then been used in (almost) all mixes in this series.
Every "Mix by Mix" edition has somewhere between 50 and 100 tracks in (close to) 30 minutes - with only very few exceptions. That gives them the power that has become a trademark for this mix series, inspired by the Grandmix series by mixing legend Ben Liebrand, and bootleg mixes like Unity Mixers, DeepDance and Ouch.
After the first 39 editions (1980-2019) i released a 'final' editon (Project 40, also known as the "Time Machine Mix") featuring music from the 80's/90's/00's combined. On request of some fans i have since then created a number of other edittions, in specific music styles and so on. If you're looking for a fast and fun way to to relive some of your favourite childhood memories (from anywhere between 1980 and 2020), then Mix by Mix is the way to go.
I'd Love to hear your comments on the project, please feel free to let me know!
