It all began with the creation of the DJ's
3 were created in the east
7 were created in the west
9 were created in the netherlands
for they were the men to have the power
But they were all deceived for another DJ was created
A master to inspire all others
One DJ to rule them all

evolving lifeform
creating DJ from carbon based material
creation completed

The DJ's thus created
This is what they will do
Create sounds that inspire
for all people of this earth
Send music out to find them
and on the dancefloor bind them
Music rules the world

TECHNICAL INFO

 

The best tracks of the year in a daring mix which goes way past the regular "let's-mix-some-drums-breaks-together" or "let's-stick-them-all-on-some-easy-loops".
Many tracks combine their melodic elements, vocal hooks and textlines to form a perfect blend turning many songs into one evolving groove.

Not all tracks have been radio-hits as tradition rules that the Grandmix is about the best dancetracks found on the dancefloor. And some of the radio-dance-hits where just too cheesy or simply did not fit in.

All tracks where checked for their 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 2002 was made using 2 pioneer CDJ1000's. These revolutionary new CD players with excellent Master Tempo are used to quickly try-out the best possible 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.

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.

The Grandmix 2002 Edition 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.
DD1500.jpeg (22681 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.

ml9600.jpeg (14982 bytes)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.
