This week delivering the FMB mix we’ve got Kitt Proudfoot returning to the series. As usual we first caught up with him to hear what he’s been up to recently:
Mainly just torturing myself trying to make a DJ mix using only Ableton. We recently moved from Berlin back to Margate, UK so our life is in boxes.
I am usually completely against Ableton mixes. Not because of Ableton itself (which I love for making bangers) but because I find it near impossible to get any sort of flow going. I eventually got there with this one. It happened when I started adding in acapellas and editing things on the fly. I am basically Richie Hawtin.
I would say this is me trying to be a little more peak time. When recording or programming a mix, if left to my own devices and with no crowd present, I would happily chug along at a very slow bpm. So this is a little more energetic. For me at least.
There is also a little bit of a thread in the tunes. A nostalgic idea of Ibiza mixed with a more no-nonsense style from my last four years in Berlin. I estimate that my DJing has become 10% more no-nonsense since living there.
I was also thinking a lot about the Gerard Butler revenge thriller, Law Abiding Citizen, at the time so naturally, that started making its way into everything.
Once I have recovered from the experience of trying to make a DJ mix using only Ableton I will be releasing my next single and my new EP on 4DG records under my DAMERCY alias. After that I will be making more comedy and tunes.
