First off, I'd like to send a big thank you to Henderick Mitchell for some of the music tips! His recommendations were the foundation for "Lost city". I submerged into an expanding network of very recent and unknown talent and discovered the most amazing tracks.

I honestly think "Lost city" is my best work so far. I did one take and the music clicked. But my mixing did not, so I thought I'd better do this one properly for once. As you can hear, this is a rehearsed mix.

I wanted to make a cinematic mix that would take you places, sounds corny but that is really what I had in mind. "Lost CIty" has a melancholic and moody storyline - with unpredictable twists thrown in hopefully. There's a good deal of variation and I tried my best to keep the mix dynamic rather than a medley of tracks.

Now, I'd really like to hear your opinion about this mix. I spent a considerable amount of time to make it just right, but now I'm a little unsure if I overdid it.

I really hope "Lost City" sparks some discussion. At least over the talent it showcases - I'm so happy I was able to discover the likes of The Oliverwho Factory (how on earth have I missed out on all their stuff for so long!? Extremely talented duo! ), Arto Mwambe (Henderick, I owe you big time), JuJu & Jordash, Vakula and the list goes on.

Now, go put on your headphones and let the music suck you into a city of sound...
