Ean Golden’s 10 Minute Mini-Set

Over the past few years, we have shown everyone a fair number of controllerism tricks and techniques on this site. Through that time, everyone has consistently expressed a desire to see them used in the context of a real dj set. While it’s not realistic to beat juggle for 30 minutes and keep a dance floor rocking it IS realistic to sprinkle the mix with some amazingly fun routines.  In the video above I condense a 30 minute set into 10 minutes of quick mixes that use controllerism as a tool for creative transitions.

Read on after the jump for the full 20 minute mix, and a contest in which you can win the midi-fighter controllers.


To make things interesting, and really create a lot of variation, here are the rules:

1) Take any of the songs used in the video (set list bellow)

2) Mix them together in your own creative fashion (minimum 2 minutes, max 10)

3) Add it as a video response to my mix before July 31rst.

4) I will pick, announce and post the winning video next month

5) All gear or software is welcome but I like creative uses of controllers.

The winner will win the 2 hand-signed Midi-Fighters used in this set.


Originally we shot a full 20 minute mix but it was just too much video so I only published the first 10 minutes. If your interested in checking out the full deal, download it bellow. I fully admit that mixing this fast is purely for show and not really practical or desirable in a club. (I personally am a big fan of letting songs play all the way through) However, for the purpose of a performance video- I wanted to show as many mixes as possible and make it fun to watch.
