It’s that time of year again. Coachella is approaching and my dropbox is downloading over a hundred tracks, all potential candidates for our 14th annual Coachella mix.
This year I am trying to capture the work on video but it has already proven harder than I expected. Recording isn’t the issue but all the upload, editing, processing, etc. is taking really long. It’s certainly taking longer than I take producing these mixes and I have to stay on top of it to meet our deadline. So because of this I am going to try to post a few short clips here and there but my number one priority is the mix itself.
If you don’t know these mixes or need a refresher, you can check out and download the last three years right here. I will eventually add earlier years as well:
John Beaver and I actually started a branded website dedicated to these Coachella mixes, but I guess that was a bit too much for our friends at Golden Voice. Since they’ve supported what we’ve been doing for almost a decade and a half, we didn’t put up a fight when they kindly requested that we take that website down… I can’t blame them.. it looked legit AF 😀 lol. Either way, I consolidated the content into a couple of pages and added them to this website. I’m planning on keeping it here so feel free to remember it, write it down or take a picture 🙂
I may not be setup yet to give regular video updates but I will certainly keep posting about the progress here for the next couple of weeks.
And now it’s time to beat warp about 50 tracks in Ableton. It’s zombie-work but an important step in setting up the mashup sessions down the line.
