On August 12th I ticked off a major bucket list item when I opened for Calvin Harris on the Time Stage at WEMF 2011. I had been spending more time checking out artists’ sets from dudes like Afrojack, Swedish House Mafia, Thomas Gold, and Alesso, just really appreciating how they craft their sets and keep the audience so engaged.
One of the things I’ve come to appreciate most about some of the tracks in this mix, tracks these other world class artists use, are the incredible dynamics – the range between the quietest and loudest sound, or the softest and hardest. Songs like First Aid by Michael Woods, or Thomas Gold’s incredible remix of Moguai’s We Want Your Soul are in this mix for their huge dynamic range, and the drama or emotiveness that brings.
Hope you guys enjoy listening to this set as much as I did making it!!
