Recording a Guest Mix


Is this going to be a Guest Mix or a Producer Mix?

A DJ set, mixing music from any artists.
30 minutes long (give or take a few minutes).
Artist's Own Music, remixes or bootlegs.
ANY length between 25 - 90 minutes.


These are not hard rules written in stone! Talk to me if you need to. The door is always open, and the list is operated on First come, First played order. So when there are 4 mixes "in the bag", mixes submitted after will go in the next guest mix show.

Mixes need to be Exclusive to Solid Sound channel, and not released or available anywhere else.
That's totally up to you. Play from your heart, whatever you are excited about. Please try to be original and enjoy yourself!
Would be nice, but entirely optional.
Mixes are broadcast on FM radio, which is actually pretty grainy and goes through heavy compression before going to the antenna. Also, mixes are uploaded to SoundCloud and Hypeddit as mp3 in 320kbps. It makes everyone's life easier if you please send as MP3. You can send me .wav or .flac if you want, and I'll convert it.

What are the benefits?

If I think the mix is up to standard (have yet to decline a mix), then ...

The MP3 is downloaded via Hypeddit, with a gate step of Follow Your Account and Repost
FM Broadcast
Your mix will be played on the radio on 93.9FM in Dublin, Ireland.
your mix will feature at the top of the Guest Mixes play list for a number of weeks, along-side 100+ other mixes with combined listen count of 100k+
If your mix needs it, the mix will get a light touch mastering. (see below)
using my ninja paint skills, I'll create a graphic for the mix

Mastering a DJ mix

If your mix needs it, I can will "Master" your mix. Just to give it a lift. If you do not want this, just let me know. A good few mixes that are sent don't really need it. Here is a video I made on the subject..

I don't claim to be a Sound Engineer or professional, but this is what works for me.

Editing a DJ mix

Editing is cheating, or is it? Well if your 20 minutes into the mix and fuck up, rewind and go again. If your not capable of editing, send it on and I'll try to edit it for you.
