now I'll probably lose my hearing (iPodVolumeBooster does indeed work), but thanks I guess!

I recently found a great Grime/Garage mix like this via the Del.icio.us mp3 filetype tag. While they're a blast to listen to I wish that they were more seekable by song (and I'd love to have an easy way to buy the individual tracks I like from the page that's announcing the mix).

I suppose I'm just being old-fashioned.

You have to love the associated blog post on DJ/rupture's site:
"As for me, I keep giving everything away. Anybody wanna pay my rent? Low Income Tomorrowland will be up for grabs until July 4. Some point soonafter, an RIAA-related shadow label will release it on CD with some other stuff, using all profits to buy handcuffs & Aunt Jemima pancake syrup. "

Thank you dobbs, Rupture's been one of my favourite artists since I discovered his gold teeth thief mix a few years ago.

How much of a downer is Tracy Chapman's "Behind the Wall" to round it out? Perfectly mixed, but fuck is that bleak... I'll shut up now.

Is it lame if I suggest that these mixes would be a better find if produced at a higher bitrate?

Didn't you get the news VulcanMike? Lo-fi is the new Hi-fi.

The track that the Tracy Chapman vocal is playing over is Team Shadetek's Two and a Half Months from the near perfect CD Burnerisms.

From the comments this sounds good. Would it be bad for me to suggest that 30 minute mix sets would be better broken into single songs, though? I've found similar tracks online from other DJs, sometimes broken into single tracks and other times left as a 100+mb mp3. For listening straight through, great. Does make it hard to work with later on though, especially if it comes up in rotation on a playlist. I actually took the time to open the last big file I had in an editor and break it into chunks (using my best guess as to where tracks ended). Blasphemy, or just simpler for handling files?

Ahem. Note to all Internet DJs: If you would like me to listen to your mixes, please adhere to the following guidelines:

1. encode at a higher bitrate
2. even though the mix is conceived as a single object, please break up the file into individual tracks with detailed artist and title information
3. include links on your page to purchase music by ALL artists featured in the mix
4. no Tracy Chapman

/sarcasm

Christ, what a bunch of audio panty-waists! Throw it in your earhole and if you hear something you like, do some research! Most of these DJs would not have a problem with a quick email: "Love the mix! What's the track that comes in around 12:30?"

Obligatory content:
Here's a very awesome breakbeat hardcore (92-95) retro mix by DJ Twist. via Bassnation.

It would be lame, VulcanMike, only if you aren't offering to supply the extra bandwidth.

Better to suffer for your art
than to make art that causes others to suffer.
