DJ River is perhaps one of the first artists that I came across releasing their remixes and full DJ mixes online.  At the time bittorrent was pretty new and bandwidth was at a premium, and he chose to embrace the technology.  I’ve listened to 27 of DJ River’s mixes, and a few of them have been listened to a dozen times or more – generally when I need to focus on a lot of school work I tend to put them on as background music.  I’m happy to share one today for all of you out there who need a soundtrack for studying.

A little about DJ River.. he’s 30, a young age for a successful DJ.  He lives in Stockholm, and his sound is heavily euro influenced.  His mixes incorporate a lot of different styles of down-tempo, ambient, and chill-out.  He has more party mixes, some pre-electro, and some trance stuff circa 2005.  His focus is on quality of selection, and he strays very far from anything commercial.  He is definitely worth a deeper look – if people like him and comment, I’ll post some more of his stuff again.  Here’s a really cool snippet from his myspace, on his philosophy of mixing:

First of all I choose the tracks very carefully.  I then ensure the tracks fit together nicely.  I believe the combination of these two elements is the most important aspect of the mix. When I have made a mix that contains those elements in a asmooth blend, I know I’ve made a successful mix. I treat the creation of the mixes as a competition with myself.  It’s not always easy and its very time consuming. Despite the challenge, I never quit.

Another thing about my mix creations is that I always try to make them astimeless as possible.  I don’t use commercial music for this reason.  To be honest, I’m not that keen on commercial music anyway.  🙂

“an emotional journey through mind and soul” ..is the feeling I want you to experience with my mixes, and I hope I will create these feelings for you aswell.
