The DJ describes this mix as such:
“This mix contains mostly famous classics. All tracks belong to my all time favorites. Even if most tracks are well known, I hope that everybody can enjoy the mix as much as I do. It’s more or less a real party mix, so have fun!”
In addition to this public mix, Myrath also submitted a pretty kickass “private” mix with some rare and unreleased tracks included in the set list. It’s a bummer that it’s private as I believe it to be the stronger of the two, but I must honor the wishes of the DJs submitting private mixes. Thus, it must sadly remain relegated to my hard drive.
The Psynamite mix is a solid entry in its own right, however, so I highly recommend checking it out. For some reason I don’t actually have Etnica’s The Juggling Alchemists Under The Black Light in my collection, so it was great to hear a track from it in this mix. There were also a few others I hadn’t heard, including the tracks from Man Of The Last 3rd, Asia 2001, Denshi Danshi, and Tristan & Tom. For me, the highlight of this mix is without a doubt the Tristan & Tom track, Syncotron…damn, they just don’t do lead lines like they used to! The Three-State Logic track is a close runner-up, however. Again, what a wicked lead. I have heard this track before, possibly at a party way back when, but it’s missing from my collection; this is exactly why I started this contest – to find gems like these. Thanks, Myrath.
Also to note, Myrath’s submittal was perfect – tracklists already formatted exactly like the others on the Goat Ranch, descriptions of both mixes, the length of the mixes and even the LAME switch used to encode them – good job!
Alright contestants, you have just a little over 6 weeks left to submit your mixes, let’s see what other awesomeness is out there.
