Mix: Troy Carter presents – DANSE 2014 (Xone:DB4)

New mix entitled “DANSE” which in case you didn’t know is French for “DANCE”..

I love making people “DANSE”, I love to “DANSE” myself and that’s exactly what this mix is meant for, “DANSING”..

Stream it, download it, listen to it, DANSE to it!

No tracklisting though, although a quick shazam session should fix your jones right up!

This mix was recorded using an Allen & Heath DB4 Digital Mixer , an Allen & Heath K2 Midi Controller, Traktor Scratch Pro 2.6.8, 2 DB Technologies Opera 712DX Self Powered Monitors and a pair of DENON DN-HP1000 Headphones.

Mix: MoMo | PM-003 | “Collection Selections” | ALL VINYL | (Xone:DB4)

:::::::::::::::::::: Collection Selections…14.04.14 :::::::::::::::::::::

Featured here now is the complete AUDIO-ONLY recording of my long, improvised DJ set of selections from the collection during a live stream.

Only one slight gap occurs at the final comment break before the last hour. You can’t hear it here because another mixer was used and this is the USB recording from the Xone:DB4 into Wavelab 8.


-Vinyl selections from the collection
- Allen&Heath Xone:DB4 and one Xone:K2 (for looper control only)
- (2) Technics SL-1210MK5G LTD..with Ortofon Nightclub MK2s
- Duo Audio customized Sony lollipop/stick headphone (vintage)
- Apple MacBook Pro recording audio into Steinberg Wavelab 8
feeding into a Live mixer streaming and recording with a microphone over it’s USB.


This is long, natural, and eclectic…aimed at providing a diverse range of sounds and styles throughout the set….not hung-up on genres… just digging and playing whatever was right in that moment…
