My IDentity Festival promo mix gets the distinction for the “Most Commercial EDM” mix I’ve ever done…by a LONG shot. This was during a time when I sort of naive enough to think stuff like Avicii and Steve Aoki were part dance music’s underground culture when it pretty much began being the opposite. The IDentity fest rode that rapidly growing wave of EDM becoming popular in mainstream culture. However because of how saturated music festivals already were at that point (especially during the Summer), IDentity was a very short-lived enterprise.

Basically the story behind this mix was I recorded it as a premiere for Dig Boston, as they were heavily involved in promoting the fest both years it happened. It was also to be aired on a local FM radio station several times. Many of the tracks in it were 5-6 minute mash-ups consisting of multiple tracks I recorded in Ableton, then played live in a recording studio. The decks I was given were belt drive so a few of the mixes were really horrific! However I ended up editing it down a little and it still flowed alright.

This is another one of my mixes that hasn’t been online in years.
