18. Influence Mix - March 2012

This month's Influence mix is kinda like Jody Wisternoff and Jamie Jones having an argument over what music to play on the decks... And I love it... I must thank those two for exposing me to such fine tracks.

After the first couple of introductory tracks this is the most fun I've had mixing house/tech-house for sure. Decided to give Serato Itch's effects a miss on this one and just concentrate on the mixing... There are a few loops and tweaks to keep things interesting though...

James Teej - Sense (Tale Of Us Remix) - DJ T., Waulking Song - Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Seelenluft - Manila (Ewan Pearson Mix) - Ewan Pearson, It's A Crime - Caribou Mix - Virgo Four, Battle For Middle You - Julio Bashmore, West Side - Bushwacka!, Costa Rica - Ticon, Pharaohs - SBTRKT, God Sent ('10) [Bonus Track] - Cajmere  feat.
