Ian, glad you enjoy them. Most of them are up on mixcrate in high quality mp3s, but I can surely send you higher quality files if you would like them. Hit me up on Facebook. also, Sam I would love to hear your mixes as well if they're available.

Matt, I have listened to some of your mixes. It's nice having a change from the normal way things flow. I've got a few Downloaded and listen to em at work at the time. I'm wondering if I could get any of them at full quality, as the ones I've found are at a lower bitrate than cd quality. I normally can't tell the difference but with Shpongle tracks it's always obvious. Ha.

And Sam, are any of your mixes available?

Funny you say that I did a mix where I went from "periscopes" to "behind lids" to "tea daze" to "walking backwards" the best transition in the entire one hour mix was from periscopes to lids because of the Indian instrumentation they layered seamlessly! If I can dig it up I will let you here just that part at least , I must say I do like your choices in tracks to mix lol

the same thought about it). either way it's fun to experiment with layering different tracks. I also have another mashup on the channel where I pieced together the Epiphany of Mrs Kugla, Behind Closed Eyelids, and Walking Backwards.

No offense taken at all. I willingly accept any criticism that can be helpful to improve, especially from anyone who knows what he's talking about. I'll give it another shot. I like the Ott build up, but perhaps it does clash oddly. I'm not sure if 7th comes in abruptly or it's just that we're so used to hearing Tea Daze the way it normally goes that it's unexpected when 7th comes in instead (because I had

My brother first off I wasn't trying to be derogatory towards you personally! The tracks "tea daze and 7th rev" indeed go well together, both in the same key and original bpms are only a few beats from each other , I've actually mixed the two together myself several times! The part where I said it sounded like the instruments were bombarding was the short period where you have Simons tea daze playing over otts tea daze, because of the different beat patterns the percussion instruments sounded off and clattered that's all. Oh and then when you dropped in 7th I thought it was just a hair too abrupt. Bro, as far has your mixing skills you excel, maybe I'm just too critical, either way I wasn't trying to bash you I hope you understand that. Cheers !

Hah it's mine and that's my channel. I honestly whipped up the mashup pretty quickly as an experiment but it's good to know an honest opinion. I've received nothing but compliments so far on anything I've uploaded. I thought the two tracks worked really well together. you really think it sound like a bombardment of instruments?

If done properly this could be a very good mix but this is terrible in my honest opinion from 2:15 -3:45 or so is God awful when he's got otts version of tea daze playing over the original version sounds like a bombardment of instruments and time doesn't work here, then the way he just drops 7th in like that abruptly turned me off. I've heard this guys mixes before they come across to me as experimental don't know what everyone else thinks but still has plenty of skills to earn here!

There's a mix by the same person called 'One Shpongle mix to Rule them All' that is also pretty epic...
