A warm Hello! to all my Friday worshippers,

It is Coachella weekend #2 and I’m gonna keep it going with the Coachella themed mixes. This time I want to feature a mix by Michael Milano. This is his 6th annual Coachella mix. His mix is pretty much 100% full of mashups and also only includes tracks and samples from the Coachella 2019 lineup. I’ve done sample and mashup mixes before and I know it takes a ton of effort, patience and time to get it right. I’m happy to have come across Michael’s mixes. He’s been nothing but a supporter of ours in the past and I really appreciate that.

And to those asking me why I would promote other Coachella Mixes I can only say this:

The Coachella experience to me was always about connecting with people who are also on a Coachella journey. Even if that journey is an inherently different one for each of us, it does bring us together and gives us the ability to share these experiences with each other and grow. That’s why I felt like sharing Michael’s Coachella Mix journey today. I think artists grow faster when they grow together. Please show his mix, which peaked at the friggin 18th spot on the global Pop charts on Mixcloud, some love:

And if you’re still thirsty for more Coachella 2019 mixes, feel free to check out the mixes John Beaver and I made this year on www.coachellamixes.com or on my mixcloud account @ mixcloud.com/thomasradman

To everyone at Coachella and everyone wishing they could attend, I’m super excited to be part of this group of people who create these mixes for your trips to and from Coachella.. or just for listening at home or in the car to anywhere.. This is my 15th year producing these and it’s been a fun challenge each year and I really hope to see all of you and people like Michael next year again, bringing the same heat!

cheers, RDMN

It is finally here! Not just another Friday but the first day of Coachella, but not only that. All the mixes are finished! All the 5am Skype sessions and weeks of nothing but production finally paid off. This Friday I present to you all four of our 2019 Coachella Mixes!

Bonus Mix:

If you’re not able to attend Coachella take these mixes as the next best thing. If you ARE going then have an awesome time, see some awesome acts and make some awesome friends… and if you have some extra time go check out John Beaver:

The week went by quickly but I still couldn’t get here fast enough. It’s Friday ya’ll!!

My musical life mate John Beaver and I have been working tirelessly on the Coachella 2019 mixes. This being our 15th year (let that marinate for a second)… 15th year producing and mixing these Coachella themed musical journeys, we wanted to do something a little bit special. We are releasing one mix per week until the festival. Our first release is the Coachella 2019 Underground Dance Artist Mix. This mix features a bunch of tech house, deep house and even techno and electronica that was best mixed with its own kind.

Our other three mixes will be the type of open format mixes that everyone has gotten used to over the years, and they will of course include electronic music as well.

So to wet your whistle please enjoy our first of four mixes while John Beaver and I get back to pounding out the other parts. Last time I looked we are at a total of over 250 minutes of music for this year.. that’s a lot of editing, mixing, fixing, listening, editing again, facepalms, triumphs, lots of laughs and many many many hours over Skype, as we’re doing the entire project while being over 5000 miles apart.

Check out our newest mix below or head over to www.coachellamixes.com for all of our Coachella Mixes.

Until next week for part 2 of 4,
cheers, RDMN

First of all a very Happy New Year to all of you. I don’t start work until next week so there won’t be any cruising, blasting music through Bavarian villages on my way home today. Besides, it’s freezing outside and we’re covered in a blanket of snow.

So it really warms me up thinking about the desert nights in Southern California, specifically the Coachella Music Festival. As many of you probably already know, the line up dropped a couple of days ago, which means it’s go time for John Beaver and me. We really want to get the 2019 mixes out early this year to give all of you enough time to enjoy them and us enough time to promote them.

This is a very special Coachella Mix year for us. Not only is it our 15th annual mix but in 2018 we signed a contract with Golden Voice allowing us to use their font, style, CI, etc. and basically be affiliated with them officially. Which consequently allowed us to build a new website with all of our past mixes on them. You can now go to www.coachellamixes.com and download everything from 2007 – 2018. Since we are now contractually obligated to maintain a certain level of quality I have decided not to include the 2005 and 2006 mixes. Please contact me directly if you are interested in these mixes for nostalgic reasons πŸ™‚

Link: www.coachellamixes.com

Screen Shot 2019-01-04 at 11.12.03 AM.png

Obviously there will be a new post when the 2019 mixes are finished, hence the title pre-Coachella… but 12 years or about 30 hours of mixes should hold you over, right? πŸ™‚

cheers, RDMN

I’ve produced many tracks in the past and usually they’re solo projects, which rely only on me and the time I invest in them. Let Me See on the other hand involved so many variables that I simply wanted to write about it to at the very least have it documented for myself.

The initial Idea

John Beaver, my Coachella Mix partner, DJ colleague and high school buddy, decided to cross off one of his dreams and booked a Europe trip. He let me know that although he’ll be traveling from shows to parties to events, etc. he wants to meet up for a few days and see if we can produce some music together.
Although I live in southern Germany, I told him it would be a good idea to meet in Berlin, being the German capital of electronic music as well as the city I was born in. He booked his flights accordingly and I started the project of bringing a “music studio” to Berlin.

The mobile Studio

IMG_7508

With a few additions to some equipment I already owned I managed to piece together a little setup that would provide us with creative flexibility in any hotel, hostel or AirBNB.

Just to list it all:

  1. Macbook Pro with Ableton Live, Reaktor, Maschine (software only), Lethal, Massive and Traktor
  2. Traktor S2 controller
  3. Oxygen8 midi keyboard
  4. Good ol’ trusted Sony headphones
  5. Behringer usb soundcard
  6. Bose Soundlink
  7. Every cable variation imaginable so everything was able to connect to everything else

John and I briefly went through some style and genre examples of what sort of track we’d want to work on and I went ahead and pre-produced three different ideas, each only about 30 seconds long to see what we would end up grooving to.

John and I hadn’t seen each other in about six years. We’ve continued to work on music over Skype and facebook and dropbox during this whole time. It was gonna be a slightly hectic two Days. I drove for about nine hours, because I wasn’t gonna take all that equipment on an airplane. I had time to setup in the hotel room before John’s plane landed. The first night was about celebrating, having fun and inspiration. He landed at around midnight and we went straight to a club with some friends of mine. The weather was super warm so the outdoor wonderland of Ipse was a really nice location to catch up, have a drink, dance around and see the sun rise over the trees and the canal. Not to mention all the techno and tech house we were exposed to that night.

First day of production

After we slept in the next day and got the sight seeing out of the way we settled in and went through the ideas I started on. We quickly decided on one style. We worked on the initial project until we had about a two minute raw clip of the main idea… and time flew by. John’s flight was leaving at 7 am and it was almost 2 in the morning when we finished up. I saved the project, went to sleep for a couple of hours, drove John to the airport and kept driving until I was home about 8 hours later… and crashed.. (Enter Simon & Garfunkel – Sound of Silence)

Producing at a distance

The rest happened in the same way our Coachella Mixes happen. We shoot ideas back and forth over various channels. I produce a bit, he adds ideas, I implement, repeat. Meanwhile John tested out what we had so far at every single on of his shows and returned with priceless feedback until we finished. Yes, we actually finished it and it was such a great feeling. Off to mastering!

Mastering by the master

Hugo Allen, my long time label partner and friend, was my first and obvious choice for mastering this track. He did an awesome job making the entire thing pop and even hooked it up with a re-master after John played one last show, which prompted some important finalΒ edits within the tracks arrangement. I’m so glad to have Hugo in my network and my circle of friends. Hit him up if you need some quality work done: Hugo Allen Music

The final product and the next steps

I am currently testing a demo version of the track on SoundCloud and Choon:

The plan is to get this track on a label at some point… maybe even cut a music video together of the different shows John played this track at… these things are still up ahead and will trigger their own posts when they happen.

For now I’m just super excited that this project is a wrap and I can start working on the next mission.

cheers, RDMN

It’s been a few weeks since we finished the mixes for this year. Coachella itself seemed to have been a success and the mixes we made were well received. After 14 years I’m glad to see that each year these mixes increase in quality. What started out as me recording John’s records back in 2004 has now become a full production mashup mix.. and it’s dope as hell!

The Story
The Tracklist

In those final weeks of rushing to meet our deadline (usually a CD-release party John is playing) I used every single free minute to polish the mashups, mixes, transitions and remixes of the project. In the last two years it even exhausted me to a point of getting sick for a week once my stress chemistry in my body shuts down. It’s no big deal.. it kinda proves to me how much energy I put into the whole thing and in the overall picture it’s satisfying to be part of this and add so much to the creation of these mixes.

John and I have become a really good team considering we’ve been working at a distance of about 10,000 miles for the last six years (The reason for this is an entire story in itself, which I’m not quite ready to share so publicly, yet). We still make it work and the results speak for themselves.

Check the intro of the first of two mixes this year:

Next year will be our 15th anniversary and I’m sure we’ll be doing the regular mixes plus a special anniversary mix… I just hope we start way earlier next time.. I’m trying to get through one of these without a complete crash afterwards πŸ˜€

Now go check out our mixes, drenched in blood, sweat and tears!
