Ekali shares ‘Edit Pack III’ + production tips with fans [Free Download]
The newest member of the OWSLA family, Ekali, has proven himself a breakout force this year. The Vancouver-based artist has not only released several explosive collaborations with Denzel Curry, ZHU, and Quix, but has also successfully launched his Awakening mix series, along with a fantastically-curated Triple J Mixup 2.0.
Now Ekali hopes to share some of his successive accomplishments with novice producers looking to start out in mixing. The producer took to his social channels with a six-track edit pack filled with mashups and other DJ tools that he’s been playing with in live performance. The standout track on the pack is Ekali’s “Neverbloom” mashup, which combines RÜFÜS DU SOL’s hotly-remixed ballad, “Innerbloom,” and Flume’s future bass anthem, “Never Be Like You.” The entire pack is available for download here.
Another amazing trick for mixing in key: you can mix a minor song into its relative major key.. which is 3 semitones higher. So Amin=Cmaj, and the opposite applies so Gmaj=Emin. Do this a lot in my awakening mixes :)
