Hi from PromoGuy

Post by promoguy on Wed 4 May 2016 - 22:57

Hey everyone!

I'm an old school blogger and long time Dance Music fan. I discovered 12" singles at a local mall on accident, while looking for LPs. I'd no idea extended versions even existed and there I was in a wilderness of EPs, remixes and vinyl exclusives! "Those are like listening to the same song over and over fo eight minutes" the record store dude said with disgust. But to me, it was awesome and that was the day I bought my first 12" single ever, "Peek-a-Boo!" By DEVO. After that I was hooked.

I was never a club DJ but always wanted to be. Instead I'd make mix tapes for my car of the remixes I'd found. Some were vinyl was imported, some were found digging around in Dallas record stores. And then one day, in college, I took a radio class and discovered what a mixing board was and the joy of a cross-fade. Then I soon realized that I liked editing reel-to-reels and was Ron remixing the remixers (there were always parts of a 'dub' that I felt should be in the main remix).

Turns out, those skills transfer nicely into Sony Aicd. Which is good now that I am transferring those cassette mixe tapes into MP3, and need to "George Lucas" a few of those old remixes I made.

One thing about me: Cameron Paul is my favorite remixer.

I have a blog, mostly about music and geeky stuff, but I'm tired nowadays and so, not making updates as much as I used to. Looking forward to this forum and getting to know folks. Talk with ya soon!

I mixed together about four versions of PSB What Have I done to Deserve this since they all had good elements. Also did another of maybe five mixes of CatchMe I'm Falling into one long  mix

My plan is to screen record the tracks as edited in Acid and post it to YouTube. But then I get home at night and get too tired to do anything. I'll try harder though.Rolling Eyes
