  The mixes on this page are used with the 4 programme. If any of the mixes contain any samples from the other EJay programmes then you will not be able to hear the full mix unless you have these programmes as well... The mixes are all zipped, because they are faster for you to download. If a mix has any "imported" or "tweeked" samples, they are normally saved into the mix, but it makes the file size much larger. Any message or text that you want to send with your mix will be added as well, unless stated otherwise..

Please note right mouse clicking the download buttons on this page and choosing save as will not work as they are only links to the actual download page in order for downloads to be counted.

This is a remix, but can't remember the original artist, sorry.

US2K Review: (Original J-Jay Review) No offence meant (as ever on here...) but if this is a re-mix, which is generally meant to improve or add some variation to the original, I wonder what the original sounded like...??? I'll sum this one up very shortly for you... Imagine some very fast kick/bongo drums, accompanied by the sound of an old grandfather clock which is stuck in "chime" mode... Add the odd FX and sphere samples here and there, and that's what we have here... A bit retro for those that like 'em that way...

Listen, and think about the millions of people who are currently worse off than us at this moment in time...

US2K Review: An old techno mix by my predecessor. It begins with punchy bass line, and only two seconds later the full drum groove (less one snare) enters the mix, and a stuttered rhythmic female vocal to drive the mix. Then there is a vocal sample which is was one of the most overused Ejay samples by producers, "This is probably the most challenging record you have ever put on your turntable". Anyway I am not going to let that bias my review if the rest of the mix is "quality". Fourteen seconds into the mix a saw tooth synth line enters the centre of the mix, initially it is a little predictable and reminds me a bit like "satellite tv channel chooser" techno but after a drum roll and the introduction of another snare accent, a second more raspy synth sound begins to enter the mix answering the first synth and creating some lovely syncopations with the drum pattern.

Despite the other cliché sample "Are you are ready" further on the mix increases in addictiveness and makes you want to dance, I was buzzing, and thinking the original score needs to go up. Some female vocals used in an intelligent way to drive the mix confirm this, as does John' s slow progressive breakdown that follows. It is beautifully done, there are all sorts of sweeps, subtle synth lines and that gorgeous raspy synth hook is fading a little into the background to glide the listener down to a bridge/break section which is finally introduced by a drum roll. As soon the listener is "down" they are hinted that they are going up again with a slow build of more subtle synth lines, a stuttering flanged sound effect acting as a drum fill, and a less subtle beautifully placed acid line, backed up by that gorgeous raspy synth hook from earlier has been faded back in.
,br>The end of bridge is announced with a loud sweep, one last blast of the raspy synth hook and a snare roll at the two minute seven seconds position. A new theme begins which is two bass lines (one standard the other a bit more acid) answering each other in a very danceable and catchy manner. The acid line is altered to announce an imminent major mix theme change is going to take place. A church bell is used like an orchestral crash to annouce the departure of both bass lines.

A few more church bell strikes are used with the drum pattern alone before another synth line enters the mix and all drums and percussion instruments except a clap and a cymbal are skilfully removed from the mix for another bridge. Personally I think this mix should have finished at this point because after the bridge it deteriorates into "satellite tv channel chooser" techno once again, "What were you thinking John?". Perhaps at the time it was more leading edge but the last minute or so of this mix is less quality of the end of the mix is less and a little annoying, "Put that girl out of her misery" , now I know why the overall mix was scored with 8, because the majority of the mix scores 10 out of 10 in my opinion.

The mix score of 8 comes from the following scores, structure 10/10, catchiness 8/10, wide audience appeal 7/10, demonstration of general musical skill 10/10, originality 6/10 (that ending is shocking), production including equalisation, reverb delay, stereo position, volume fades etc. 10/10. I recommend the first three minutes to everyone who enjoys any sort of dance or electronic music, djs will not go wrong mix some of it into their sets. The last minutes of the mix will only be enjoyed by serious Ejay fans and techno heads only I think and probably only for nostalgia reasons.

Basic Samples needed. Import Samples needed. (In the mix.)

John, Hi m8, DJ BassBomber here. I got a new track but it's 3,174kb. Is that o.k to send? I've tried taking samples out, but it just ain't the same without them. + Here's my latest mix. It's the one I told you about, that's a tad too big, but hopefully you can stick it on m8. CHEERS!!!

US2K Review: (Historic JJ Review) The mix file unzips to just over 3megs, and once again has a few imported and tweeked samples which I seemed to recognise... Good little intro, which sounds quite novel, but the tones in the vocals don't seem to suit this mix somehow. The sequences are nicely varied, ranging from a heavy bassline, to spacey and synthy, and this is what makes this one not quite up to the mark of John's last one... The blippy synth's are too overdone here, and could be o.k for a backdrop, but they constitute a large part of this tune, and they make it a little drony and monotone for me... Certainly original and different, just lacks that little extra impact...

(US2K says) It is quite fascinating well worth 8 out of 10 in my opinion.

US2K Review: (Historic JJ Review) So dark, it's pitch black...!!! lol... Easy to sum this one up. Imagine a film track for a slasher / serial killer movie, and youv'e got it about right... I actually liked it, because it's well crafted and put together, and you can actually feel the menace in the tune, and although there is a bit of a faulty ending which loses it half a point, (just too abrubt, or something missing ???) I still wouldn't recommend listening to this on your own in a darkened room...!!! lol... A complex mix from ingenious mind... lol... The very last thing that sprang into my mind was an oiled pixie btw. More like a siezed up, sick and tormented hobgoblin... If you like 'em spooky and scary, then this is the one for you...

US2K Review: (Historic JJ Review) I knew Mark could do a lot better than his previous one... This one has a bit of motion and feeling to it anyway... This mix came across as a bit quieter than the last one, so I checked out the mixer volumes...?? Nothing awry in there too much, but I did have to knock my speaker volume up a few notches to hear the tune a bit better... lol.. Much better work gone into this one, and it shows... Add just a few generator samples as well, and with the overlayed build-ups dropped in, we get a half decent and much better listen... Might be a bit too laid back for avid techno fans, but nonetheless runs along with some fluency and smoothness...

Bass Mom & Dj CrusadeReview: I am very impressed with this intro it is dramatic and the use of the drum and snares are outstanding the vocals are spot on and the overall compostion and originality of this track have left me in the mood to dance!!! I highly recommend this mix to anyone who wants to have an all night party or rave!!!! BASS BOMBER gets an even 10 on this track!!!!!
10


Max MotionReview: I wonder where Bassbomber is now , he produced some great tracks though this isn`t one of them though. This is a very dis-jointed track , it does flow smoothly in places but the theme just isn`t strong enough to hold it together.

US2K Review: (Historic JJ Review) In a word - no... (Well not quite.... lol.) Seriously, I didn't like the "blippy" intro to this tune, although it does kick into it as soon as it hits go...!!! Just after the two min mark, we get what begins to sound like a half decent mix again, which has a very eurodream/rave/euphoric feel to it, and the second half works a lot better than the first for me, which is a bit hit-and-miss with some mismatched samples... Liked the breaks and the outro, which are well done, but this one lacks the continuity and flow of the one above, most probably due to some mistiming here and there, which doesn't give it the same impact... It's not too bad overall with some good ideas in there, and I still think this is John's best format...
(US2K Says) I think JJ was too harsh I really like the happy rave feel, and I like the use of the vox to create breaks in the mix. My score is 7 out of 10.
