Twelve mixes for xmas and an album or remixes as my winter solstice 2012 gift

Submitted by on December 21, 2012 – 20:13No Comment

Today is the last day of the mayan calendar, the 2012 winter solstice and my dog’s birthday! So to mark the occasion I thought i’d get together my best mixes of 2012 into a blog post and send it to friends and the nice people who visit my site.

Updated (quite a few years later!) Some of the links got broken for the 4 x CD mix, so there’s actually only 8 mixtapes on this post.

I also play & make quite a range of different music (downtempo / dope / house / techno, etc) :)

You can download all the new mixtapes & genres (over 50 all free with covers and tracklistings) from the collections on my new Dj Narrative site - http://www.djnarrative.com/subscriber-content/


The Coming Home series has Narrative and is more suited to after a club listening, and the Going Out are live recordings and potentially more suited to getting ready to go out. To be fair they’re all quite diverse and dynamic so i’ve put the genres underneath each one to help navigation. Each mix is around 40 minutes so you can fit 2 on a cd & covers are available from the show page links)

I was planning to post a new 4 dex & efx techno going out mix and a turntablist funky hip hop coming home mix, but they need more work, so i’ll post them up in the next newsletter. To make it up to 12 there’s also the 4 cd mix at the bottom, and please do help yourself to any of the 80 mixes & radio shows from any of my 3 back catalogue pages

If you’re feeling generous i’ve also put together an album of remixes from previous tracks to raise money for the save the children gaza fund. It’s made up from tracks before i really had my head around arrangement and production, but im pleased with how its turned out and the narrative fits well with the situation in gaza.

Either way please do help yourself to the album (also featured below), as its all free, and if you’d like to donate to save the children, the links are in the description.

Really hope you enjoy listening to these as much as i have putting them together and if you like any of the artists there are links to all in the tracklistings below.

If you enjoy any of the mixes and want to show support, a like on my new facebook page would be all thats needed.

And finally if you would like my debut album (the proper one) and all of the best new content that i send to friends and newsletter subscribers, please do drop your email into here.

Wishing you an inspiring solstice, a very merry xmas, and a prosperous new year.

Dj Narrative 2012 Prequel Album of Early Remixes for Gaza Save the Children Fund

I was a bit aprehensive of putting this out as its not really representative of my music making or producing, but its for charity and think its turned out pretty well all things considering (more info below)

GENRES – Trip Hop / Glitch Hop / Breaks / Dancehall / Drum & Bass


Here’s a bit more background with the links to  in case you dont read the soundcloud info. >>

An album of remixes featuring track from last 5 years, put together to raise money for emergency save the children gaza fund.

Please visit my bandcamp page for the information and links to download all tracks for free (and/ or donate to the save the children gaza fund if you’d like to) http://djnarrative.bandcamp.com

I have a new setup, workflow, and approach to writing and producing now so all these tracks were made before i really understood arrangement or production. Many of the tracks were missing plugins and some just being most recent wav export. That said i’ve used ozone for some limiting and basic mastering to try and get them up to speed and am pretty pleased with how its turned out.

Artists featured are Bruce Lee, Noam Chompsky, Bill Hicks, Saul Williams, DubFx, M.I.A, Method Man, Redman, Coldcut, General Levy, Fugees, Pink, Peter Kaye, Susan Vega & The Montini Experience.

Starting work on debut album 12 / 12 / 2012. I’ll post all the tracks and parts via my new facebook page (next thing to update) - www.facebook.com/djnarrative All tracks, mixes & back catalogue freely available from www.djnarrative.com & & www.marceck.com
