can't be sure how i came upon hard mix. had something to do with twitter, but it's fuzzy. it went down something like this, a tweet appeared in my feed, by a person i didn't even know i was following and by chance i saw it. @ahardmix said:
and like that my interest was piqued. sick bass line and beat? I'M IN. vowed to check it out the next day. and did, on hard mix's myspace page. found myself letting the sounds i found there loop and loop. shot DMs & emails to a few people on my same sound wave length, saying something to the effect of "HEAR THIS. it pretty much rules." then i got greedy. or needy? i had no choice but to ask Noah Smith (= Hard Mix) to give me mp3s. i had to. and he did. like that. and my day turned brilliant. Upon my first few listens i felt a washed out, pictureplane vibe. what i love though is, Noah associates himself with moby. MOBY! that's so killer. and he's right. i hear that too.
a few fave tracks:
you are gold
just tell me
hard mix plans to have a full-length album,
i feel perfectly confident assuring you that these sounds are going to make your monday a little less painful, a little less mundane. ;-)
