Thank for the support and the supportive words Techboy
I do understand Valotonins euphoric helping hand. No apologies needed man.
Mixing different styles is something I really like to do. If you have 3 hours of spare time and want a showcase of that then check this radioshow
where I mix different styles and music eras with each other. It starts sort of coherent and slowly turns into all sort of styles. Also all my yearly best of mixes mostly are a great example of that.
The thing with OoT is that there isn't the world of choices. In previous volumes there are a lot of transitions that aren't even mixed but "connected" where the songs did the magic. Most of them have been created out of mini mixes with songs that fit well together where I managed to put the mini mixes in a logic sounding order. Or just a hard break to continue into a new chapter. Sometimes I even had to drop the most beautiful entries because there were no "soulmates".
This time there are a lot of stand alone's and I don't have much tracks to pick from too. I have to admit that I don't mix as much as I did. I stopped mixing the yearly "best of" mixes too a couple of years ago. So perhaps I miss the sharpness and am less "fit" that I can imagine. Even if I was, I can't make it happen so that's the reason why I want to offer to let someone else do the thing.

Yes, too much diversity and not much "soulmates".
TheStatPow wrote:The amount of songs can be fixed very well. just refuse some submissions. heck I'll gladly give my spot away if it is just to make OoT7 Happen.
I always drop submission which don't fit the flow of the mix.
TheStatPow wrote:"Re-open contributions and postpone the release of OoT7" This option isn't going to fix this issue, you can't fix stuff thats already not working great together just by putting more stuff in IE more work and postpone. postponing neither fixes the issue.
This sure might help to create mini mixes (as described above) and give me more tunes to choose from. Though I'm not sure if there is enough interest and will trigger new contenders.
TheStatPow wrote:Also wondering, is Twoism Records still going to be a thing?
Yes, it still is a thing but I'm not actively searching for candidates atm. Let's say it is on hold for now.
