The Mixtapes Forever - Mixed by DJ Kikkoman


Nothing better than waking-up to a 4-track mix on a Saturday morning.

This is a mini-disc 4-track mix I made sometime in the late 90's.....I was really happy to have found this machine in the newspaper ads and bought it off some random dude....you gotta remember, this is pre-craigslist days....


I thought it would be a great investment because with mini disc you could record over and over without loss of sound quality.....I thought mini disc was going to take off here, I guess it did in Japan but never really caught on here....


Turns out, it would cause occasional glitches and hiccups where part of the audio was messed up......Damn, this thing killed my workflow trying to correct broken parts.....


I intended to make at least an hour long mega-mix with this but never got back to it.....now that my Pro Tools skills are getting better, maybe I'll go back and redo and finish it in 24-bit baby....


P.S. Tracklist coming soon, just need time to write it all up....

I guess everyone using the term "Mixtapes" looks back to them days.....everything goes in cycles so maybe someday we'll see.....
