Q&A SESSION WITH MONTEL
Know more about the Montel´s podcast episode.
- Where and how was the mix recorded?
I recorded the mix on my home setup of 2 x Pioneer CDJ 2000′s and a Vestax PMC 580 Pro mixer. I use flash drives with the CDJs (running by all the files through Rekordbox). This is exactly how I play in the clubs.
- Talk us through the track selection of the mix. What are the musical influences that have allowed you to arrive at this mix?
For podcasts & DJ mixes I like to keep the track selection as fresh as possible. The track selection here is a snap shot of what I’m playing out, in the clubs currently. I’m inspired by Techno, as much as I am by House. So I like my DJ mixes to have a feeling of both styles. I love tracks with heavy basslines and lots of vocals samples. Always groovy and uptempo!
- In what setting should we be in to appreciate the mix most?
As the mix is pretty slamming, I think it would work great before hitting the club! Or perhaps at the gym.. A good mix always helps you bash out a few extra KMs on the treadmill… Enjoy!
