Faithless and Safri Duo

Why were these records not in the grandmix (2 become one - faithless and 'the bongo song' from Safri Duo?
Ben's answer: It's all about the policy's. Faithless' recordcompany has international policies saying Faithless tracks cannot be used in mixes. Faithless would probably have no problems with being mixed. Safri Duo is the same case, their track COULD have been in the mix if Ben had asked the Safri boys personally, instead of having the recordcompany make the decision. So FUCK the recordcompanies!!!! 

R&B Tracks:
Getting the R&B tracks really turned out to be a problem. Only few tracks could be licensed as the main problem turned out to be that tracks couldn't be licensed for a compilation with more than 100 titles. The odd thing is, only R&B artists are objecting, while club and uptempo tracks are no problem.
We are therefore planning to release a seperate CD in the spring of 2002 with the 'missing' R&B tracks. It is planned to be a single CD with some 44 R&B and rap tracks on it.

TECHNICAL INFO

 

setup1[1].jpeg (13004 bytes)All tracks will be checked for there exact BPM using the built-in BPM counter in the Pioneer CDJ1000. The tracks were then entered in a database and sorted by tempo and key. The Grandmix 2001 is being made using 3 pioneer CDJ1000's. These revolutionary new CD players with excellent Master Tempo are used to quickly try-out the best possible2xcdj1000[1].jpeg (34676 bytes) combinations and locations in the seperate tracks to make the perfect mix. All sections needed for a particular crossfade are pitched and recorded seperately into the Akai DD1500. Often the Master Tempo feature is used on just one of the 2 tracks in a crossfade, returning to "normal (non-pitch corrected) mode" immediately after the crossfade is completed. In development, Software for you PC: CDJ1000 mulitimediacard merger Merges all CD data of any number of mulitimediacards into one file which can be copied files for back-up and ofcourse be copied back to all your mulitimediacards in a matter of seconds.

DD1500.jpeg (22681 bytes)The Grandmix 2001 is digitally edited on the AKAI DD1500 Digital Audio Workstation. This DD1500 has 28 hours of recording time at 44.1 KHz 16 bit stereo. And can record up to 16 tracks simultaneously. The DD1500 does not use any audio mp3 or other destructive data compression.

ml9600.jpeg (14982 bytes)Most of the tracks are unprocessed. Only a few tracks are digitally EQ'd, in the DD1500 to give them a bit more punch in the low frequencies. The mix is then mastered onto the Alesis Masterlink, where also the track id's were added. With it's 5,4 hours continuous recording time, the Alesis Masterlink was also ideal to broadcast the 3 hour continuous mix on Radio 538 on new year's eve.
