Discards collection in commercial megamixes

This time I’m going to surprise my friends who are fans of megamixes, showing some examples of discarded segments of these discs that I have had the opportunity to participate being part of Cut’n’Paste team, for Blanco y Negro Music label. In the following tracklist you will find discarded extracts from Bolero Mix 25, Bolero Mix 26, Ibiza Mix 2009, and the latest so far, Bolero Mix 29.

Working in the music industry is far from easy, because a mass of interests converge, on which the author does not usually exert any influence. In the case of dance music compilations, the closest link is usually the A&R of the corporation, who is directly responsible for the project in the first place.

Of course, the views of executive producer, other A&R from the company, even the technician in charge of the mastering, usually affect the final result of the product, although this happens to a lesser extent. This makes the concept that the creator had initially planned ends more or less modified. The criteria of the responsible persons, as well as the changes in the tracklisting throughout the mixing process (some of that changes for last minute), or the inability to obtain fragmentation licenses in time are the variables that cause certain segments are discarded, and therefore, cause the megamix take one way or another at the end.

So I hope you've enjoyed these little oddities. I also promise to share with you in subsequent updates the links so you can hear my full megamixes, although these elements are easy to find in Youtube. Greetings to all!

P.S: I would like to thank earnestly Germán Ortiz (a.k.a. DJ GO) collaborations as "voice" in most contemporary Bolero Mix. Germán is a complete professional, and also has an enviable sense of humour. You can observe this in a couple of extracts which I have presented above (in the discarded endings of Bolero Mix 26 and Bolero Mix 29).

UPDATE: I have added a little foolishness that I prepared for Bolero Mix 28. This wasn’t included because it was done out of time.

  1. Doy fe. Dj GO hizo para mí los jingles de Djs de Élite y, como no quise dejar en descarte sus cachondeos a la hora de hacer los jingles, los incluí completos en una pista de voces.

  2. Muchas gracias por los aportes, es genial escuchar cosas que no se han podido editar por diferentes motivos como muy bien explicas. También el poner cara al otro 50% de la formación, ya que tantas y tantas veces he disfrutado de vuestros trabajos. Felicidades por dejar que este fantástico mundo no muera. Gracias y suerte.
