Conducta’s Guide To Making the Perfect Guest MIX

Conducta is THE hero of UK Garage and can call himself the proud owner of the trailblazing label Kiwi Records. All the big stars are lining up for his award-winning production skills but he also finds time to make music for his own project. To celebrate the release of his new song “4-4-2“, Conducta made an exclusive guide for you where he gives you the ten steps to make the perfect guest mix.

1. Stay hydrated

Whenever I’m doing a mix I know it’s gonna be journey & exhausting in the best way possible! Drink responsibly

2. Be as comfy as possible

Whether it means mixing sat down, wearing your favourite football shirt & slippers etc. Make sure you feel at ease!

3. Work on your own tunes or edits

Believe in yourself! A lot of the time it’s easy to downplay your ability. Before a mix I always like to mess around with some of my own edits or productions, just to throw a few curveballs in the mix

4. Plan but be flexible

I always make sure I have a dig via bandcamp & beatport to check for any release I may have missed. Of the 20/30 tunes I’ll need for a mix Ill always have about about 40/50. It’s like packing an extra holiday fit for when you feel spontaneous.

5. Keep active

Whether it’s going for some fresh air, doing some exercise before. Anything that’s gonna physically keep you stimulated so your mind’s right to stay alert, whilst in the mix.

6. Candles

We’re mixing but the room doesn’t haven’t to smell like a club… having a clean, organised and fragrant space does wonders!

7. Confidence

Don’t let a nervous transition throw you off. In the grand scheme of things it’s a minor blip

8. Practice

It’s simple- practice makes perfect

9. ENJOY.
