    this is one of the best mixes iv'e heard this year, awesome. you fitted a lot of variety into this, and i never got bored. the tune edits worked well and because some areas of the mix aren't just rolled out, more stop start, i found the 'suspense' of each track was kind of intensified because of the unpredictability.

    i think you planned this really well, like you say 'imagine a movie' - this was like an aural movie - loads of little scenes, changes and events to keep that 'cinematic' vibe, i really enjoyed it, something different. the mixes sounded great with the effects and cuts, not too many either to oversaturate.
    well done :twothumbs:

    That's one of the most inspirational mixes I've heard. It's a work of art: genuine passion and a lot of time has been put into that set. Well done.

    How long have you been mixing? Any other sets available?

    thanks for the compliments, i'am glad that you like it! :cool:
    I can't tell you how much time I spent on this. The mixing, maybe 3 days (trying alternatives, redoing the thing lots of times). But telling you how much time went into selecting the tracks is impossible because I think about it all the time, when I listen to tracks. I always have some ideas for themed mixes and sort tracks accordingly. For this mix I had like 120 'cinematic' tracks to choose from.
    Some other mixes I've done:

    all calyx mix
    piano vibes vol.1 (only tunes with piano samples)
    blunt trauma (focus on deep tunes with heavy basslines)
    synapse konspiracy
    dubbed down (dub, electronica, downtempo)

    of those only "dubbed down" and "piano vibes" are currently up. the rest is on which is down at the moment.

    Excellent work cygn... Ive been looking for someone that mixes DNB with Ableton for a while..

    The mix is seamless and very entertaining. Some of the loops are wielded with such deft aplomb that I was beside myself at times. The Big L interlude is wicked as are the orchestral interludes... What you have done is use some well known hooks and incorporate them as loops - works very well indeed.

    I would love to hear more dnb sets if you have any? I notice most others are from other genres of dance.

    Ableton and Traktor users like us are few and far between in DNB but I hope sets like this will make people take software mixing more seriously. Big up and I hope there are more on the way!!

    Thanks RocDollar! :thumbup:

    I don't know of many ableton dnb sets. There is one by Outrage here. Paradox' sets are also live sets. He doesn't use Ableton, but he plays loops and samples from his tracks. Amit played an Ableton set a few days ago. I'd love to get my hands on that :D
    Roni Size plays with Ableton too, I've heard.
    Then there is one very good Ableton set by Tako at . He made special techno edits from dnb tracks (so it's not a dnb set anymore).

    Some of my other dnb sets done with ableton:
    blunt trauma
    twinkling dream
    all calyx mix
    piano vibes
    unicomplex tracklist
