BOUNCE 024 AKASHA “REDARKULAS”

George is back (Akasha) with a heavy bass mix for you, and as always loves to hit you with the sweet dub sounds. You may remember his previous two “BOUNCE” podcasts Summer of Dub 1 & 2, they were some of the most downloaded podcast we have had. Akasha has been a busy man since last on here, taking his mixing style to a new level. This mix is an example of his innovation in sound mixing by moving in and out of different parts of tracks – chopped and remixed on the fly. Check out the links for more info, and Akasha’s message below explains a bit more about this mix.

From AKASHA:
This mix has relentless intent to the point of ridiculous, plunging to the depths with an omni-present sub-bass that takes a journey down to Grimeland. If you don’t own a sub your missing out on one of the finer things in life, so do yourself a favor.

This mix could not have been made without mixing it with Ableton. Anyone who is limited between two turntables and is unaware of Ableton and chopped up songs, and looped based mixing who hears these mixes will be sure to be scratching their heads to what the hells going down. I keep finding delight in the fact that everyone out there who owns these tracks will be sure to have not heard them in this way.

This mix climbs in and out, with tracks consistently power mixing one upon the other up to 3 even 4 tracks at times, converging between remixes and originals, and skipping around all parts of songs. Telling a story when and how I tell it to from the great music provided by this collection of amazing producers. Each transition in the parts of the mixes are loops launched at my bidding, going far beyond the usual sound and practice of letting a song play out.

This mix is a journey and a milestone for me, I appreciate all who make it to the end of the mix and share the joy of getting redarkulous.
