What is Mixes.net?

Simply put, our site provides free dj mixes to you. Ultimately we hope to have most genres of electronic music covered on the site. Currently there are progressive house, tech house, and minimal dj mixes available. We will con tinue to send out these mixes as cds or on zip drives until it becomes financial irresponsible for us to do so. Then, we will only charge for shipping and handling the mixes. The mixed tracks come from various artists not connected to Mixes.net and were purchased by Mixes.net djs via record stores or online music distributors. The rights to these tracks are the property of the artists or the record labels for which they have a contract. Mixes.net is not in the business of reselling or making profit off other peoples music.

Tune into Mixes.net Radio in the Electronica + Progressive section of Shoutcast. Feedback is always appreciated!

Motivation

The founder of Mixes.net is Salient. DJ Salient started mixing records in 1996. He grew up listening to shoegazers during the 1980's and gravitated to the California underground with friends in the 90's. He was strongly influenced by DJ Brian and Brad from Moontribe, Doran, Christopher Lawerence, Richie Hawtin, and Demetri Nocturnal (an incredible tactician on the CDJ's, turntables, Ableton and good friend). Salient is a turntablist and user of CDJ's, but spends most of his time utilizing Ableton to perfect his mixes. The goal is to share his mixes with listeners who enjoy the same types of music.

Latest News

I am heating up for a number of DJ mixing competitions this Spring and Summer. I am hitting a number of genres, working outside my "progressive" comfort zone! Any new DJ competition mixes are posted on the top left, below the Mixes.net logo. Otherwise you can also check out the DJ Salient website for Twitter updates and DJ Salient Facebook Group additions. Way too many external links. Dance Safe.

You do realize my DJ mixes are free, right? They are not that awful. I promise.
