Finally – on the eighth draft, no less – I’ve ended up with the final, FINAL version of the plinth mix.
You can stream it or download it from one of two locations:
1. http://soundcloud.com/miketd/mikes-plinth-mix (smart, streamlined, user-friendly)
2. http://www.zshare.net/audio/65568530f16dea46/ (skanky, low-rent, ad-infested)
For ease of pimpage, I’ve set up easy-to-remember aliases for both addresses:
http://tinyurl.com/plinthmix and http://tinyurl.com/plinthmix2
More by accident than design, the final mix is EXACTLY one hour, zero minutes and zero seconds long. This pleases me enormously. Many of the tracks are beat-mixed into each other, and I hope you’ll appreciate the smoothness of my transitions. And if you’re looking for Personal Lyrical Resonances along the way, then you should find plenty to chew on.
I’m not publishing a track listing online, but downloaders will find it stashed away on the “lyrics” section of the MP3 tag data. So if you’re playing it on an iPod, just press the centre button a few times, and it will pop up on your display screen.
Obviously, it’s up to you whether you play the mix in advance of Thursday – but might I suggest that the magic will work better if you don’t? (Then again, you might want to practise your best moves in readiness. And who am I to stand in your way…)
Finally, might I draw your attention to my official profile page on the One & Other website? As the site designers have fully embraced Web 2.0 functionality, you can leave comments or merely “pledge your support”. (But only if you want to. I really don’t mind if you don’t.) After my hour is up, the same address will then take you to the full hour’s worth of archived footage.
Enough pimping for tonight. I hope you like the mix.
