Mentalien - North Pole (new bass music mix up!)

To be honest with you, the garage-inspired house sound, which is dominating the bass music scene nowadays, is a bit too much for me. There are many great productions, obviously, but there are way too much cheap copies as well. Don't get me wrong, I love this sound, but if you eat the same thing every day, after a time you get sick of it, so it's better to give it a little pause and go other directions. Yesterday I did a one hour ustream-session and mixed up some great tunes, which are mostly, influenced by techno, and/or have a heavy drum programming. It was really liberating to mix these raw beats instead of the warm basslines, nice vocals and melodies. So at the end of the mixing session I thought this is something I should share, just to show something different, something I rarely do nowadays. Some mixings are just as raw as the tunes themselves, sorry for that, let's concentrate on the flow of the mix instead, hehe. Enjoy!
