Maaan, you are so right! Mixing is so different and more diffucult than it was a few years ago. My problem is, that most of the new releases are boring or just simply don't have anything special. Producers want to create the big fish but instead of concentrating the general effect and consistency they distort the sound quality with random elements that are not fit to the characteristic of the track! Sorry to say but when I check the daily releases on Beatport, out of 30 tracks I can hardly find 1 which worth a listen, not a download.
Other problem is that the tracks are so diverted in terms of sound so they can hardly fit in a mix without causing serious inconsistency!
Did you like any of the tracks from the mix above?
