Do You Actually Listen to Longer Mixes All the Way Through?
So I've finished a Minimalism mix that is locked and loaded for all of you to hear. In response to those who always complain that my mixes are too short, the mix clocks in at 70 minutes. I didn't necessarily intend to make a longer mix per say, the mix just turned out to be on the longer side. As many of you know, I tend to make mixes on the shorter side because I always error on the side of quality over quantity. The other factor that influences my shorter mix tendency is that I don't really think listeners have the patience to listen to a mix that runs beyond 30-40 minutes. So here's the dilemma. My latest Minimalism mix is the best mix that I've made in my opinion and I'd hate for 30-40 minutes of the mix to go ignored by the majority of listeners. So, should I release the mix in its entirety and risk a lot of hard work going unheard? Or, should I break up the mix into two separate volumes allowing the listener to hear the mix in two smaller, more palatable servings? Thoughts???
