Some Mixing Barbarism On The Auld Sony Acid.

Taking a peak around my laptop lastnight led me back to some strange places, including some lost and now disregarded folders of mashed up samples in various states of chopped up hopelessness. One of these shunned folders contained a 30 minute mix (90mb mp3) I made using Sony Acid about a year and a half ago and then forcefed semi-live to a rather bludgeoned and bewildered crowd at an Anarchy Night Cafe up stairs in the Liberty Bell on Francis Street.

As a record of what I was listening to heavily at the time it features some Robocop samples, Woody Guthrie in a car crash with Scotch Egg, Belladonnakillz on party advice and a whole Shitmat melody in the middle. I think there's even some Authecre in the background being mangled by Hellfish and the best bit of all the rousing Scooter finale. I listened to it last night and its hardly the worst but seriously if any of the above sounds interesting enough to make you download the thing, then please be careful some of the belching , squeeling and peaks in this train crash of a mix may damage your ears.

With Sony Acid as a topic of conversation, there's an odd feature on the DVD that comes with Computer Music this month - nearly 65 minutes of Shitmat on how to produce a track using Sony Acid and one or two other programmes. He starts with chopping beats, moves on to getting bass lines sorted, adding ragga chat and gabber kicks for dance floor hops. At 10e that's a hefty price to pay, but why not...
