Description: Bex Cafe Mix
This mix show is ultilized for Live Party Environment but not mixing skills....that's why many LP Cut....but feel the power in it!
Time is also limited, normal set is 1 hour only, actually hard to perform from "building up" to "harvest",....
....so I negotiated to have 1 and 1/2 hour for my set....
Many good tracks which I love had been omitted because of lack of time.... will include them in future parties and mixes....

Thanks

 Description : I want to put down the sounds which echoes in my mind. A scene of lovely people of the 60's, 70's, 80's all dressed up and dancing latin steps happily to the music I play. This is part 3 (of 4 parts) of my "Macau Lounge Mix Project". Like "Star Wars", I start with Part 3 first :) Tuna Macaense is a legendary "love by all" amateur band in Macau. Consisting of generations of Macau born Portuguese (Macaense), in their 2005 album inlay, I saw a photo of the band taken in 1935 !

 ------------ 在 Tuna Macaense - Macau Sa Assi 葡語澳門歌曲中您們可聽到廣東話歌詞 "新馬路", 這是澳門的中葡融合特色! ------------

  Da Da Da (feat. Stephan Remmler) Pussy Cat Dolls - Sway (Promo Only) I personally think that the vocal is the re-pitched voice of Rosemary Clooney Thanks

04. Dido - Here With Me

08. DJ Shadow - My Guru
09. 李香蘭 - 梅花 (混音版) [ Li Xiang Lan - Plum Blossom (Remix) ]
10. Shivaree - Goodnight Moon

Length : 34:53
Date : 2009.04.29 Mid-night
Description : A recording of my emotions one night. From "Lying down doing nothing" to "Get up and ready for anything", a definitive warm up session. I had thought of adding songs to this mix but I finally decided to keep the original tracklist, as this is the actual flow of my emotions.

Technical Note : This mix is about mood programming skill. I did this with MixMeister, though I have not changed the tracklist, I have done a few mix versions with different volume in different points and it makes differences in the mood programming.
In this mix I've found out that fader control skill in mood programming is important as much as in beat mixing.

Thanks.

DJ可謂舞場的靈魂,人頭湧湧的舞池放著他選播的澎湃音樂,氣氛激盪,引領高潮一浪接一浪。DJ用音樂形做氣氛,氣氛不會因轉換歌曲而打斷。
DJ 所用的接歌技巧稱為 Beat Mixing, 是成為DJ 的最基本及最重要的技巧。要掌握到這技巧不是一朝一夕的事,需要很有恆心不斷練習才會得到成果。

課程目的:
用最快最簡單方式使跳舞音樂愛好者對 DJ beat mixing 得到初步瞭解,跳過最難掌握的部分(用電腦程式輔助), 可由自己操控完成簡單 beat mix 過程。
這課程屬試味性質,讓學員可初步嘗試自己做beat mix 的滋味。 (這課程類似遊客茶道班、遊客試酒班。如學員希望深入認識 DJ beat mixing 及 做一個好DJ的要訣,便需從正確的基礎和理論學起才可。)

課程內容:
1) 數拍子
2) 歌曲結構
3) 器材運用 (用 VDJ 示範唱盤和混音器)
4) 夾拍子 (略過,用 VDJ 示範)
5) Mix 2 首歌
6) Extended Remix

課程對象:
70、 80、 90 及 2000 年代的跳舞音樂愛好者。

授課語言:
繁體中文 (學員可自行轉成簡體中文)。


學習方式:
著重概念、盡少理論、行動學習。

上課時間:
自修課程,任何時間均可。

上課網址:
http://djartimix.blogspot.com/2009/03/dj-beat-mixing.html

所需器材:
任何 DJ 打碟程式 (模擬多唱盤和 DJ Mixer),
建議使用 Virtual DJ (trial version / registered version) + Advanced Default Skin。


=========
第一單元 : 數拍子
如果您曾經唱過歌,其實便已接觸過拍子。

拍子多數是以四拍為一組 (又稱為measure 或 bar)
以最簡單的兒歌作例,一邊拍手一邊唱:

1 2 3 4
有隻雀仔
跌落水--
跌落水--
跌落水--

有隻雀仔
跌落水--
被--水--
沖去----

Baby Bitz (2y7m) 真人示範:


--------
跳舞音樂的節拍通常用鼓聲表達,十分明顯。

一個 "榜" 聲 (Kick) 為 1 拍
一個 "啪" 聲 (Snare)為 1 拍

有節奏的 "榜 啪 榜 啪" 便是4拍。

以下是16拍,請大家一起數:

你可以由 1 數 到 16,但一首歌可能過千拍就很難數。 一般會以一組一組來數,

例如 :
1234 1234 1234 1234

又可以這樣數:
1234 2234 3234 4234

數完後 我們便知是有 4組4拍,即16拍。

外國DJ多用 4/4 來數,我們港澳DJ多用 8 拍為一組來數:

12345678 22345678
2組 8 拍,即是有 16拍。

兩種數法其實一樣,請就自己的習慣選定一種。

----------
節拍可以有很多變化,請大家一起數數以下3種節拍每種有幾多拍 :

Dance Beats Part A

Dance Beats Part B

Dance Beats Part C

----------
Beats Per Minute (BPM) : 1分鐘有幾多拍

很重要的概念,不可跳過這部份。

BPM 唔係 DJ 界獨有,醫學界和日常生活都必定用到。

習作 1 : 請大家現在看著有秒針的鐘或錶,數數自己1分鐘內有幾多下心跳。

很簡單,大家一定明白。

好,現在可以數beat。

專業 DJ 唔會對著個鐘數BPM, 而會戴有計時器的電子錶,一來比較準確,二來可除時除地數BPM (很多時在餐廳或在商場類的地方,聽到首歌,例如是郡麗君的歌,突然間有靈感,唔知可唔可以同某歌夾beat。就可 "即時和當場" 數beat)。

Casio Watches


現在大家一齊數這歌 :
Gaz_bo - Lunat_c {Listen Only}

準備計時錶,我們數30秒就足夠。

[ Tips ] 用計時錶從整首歌的 第一拍開始計時可能有困難,比較易的方法可以從之後的拍子組 (beat group) 的第一拍同時起動計時錶計時。


我們在整首歌的 第5組八拍中 的第一拍 同時按計時錶開始計時。

12345678
22345678
32345678
42345678

52345678
62345678
72345678
82345678

0.5

在計時錶數到 30秒正 的時候,我數到 8組八拍 加半拍,即半分鐘有64.5拍。

BPM 的計算法是 將半分鐘的數值 減1 再 乘2 :
(64.5 -1) x2 = 127BPM

每首歌的 BPM 資料對DJ 很重要,可讓DJ 認知歌曲的拍子速度,拍子速度大約相同的歌曲先可以放在一起作 beat mix.

DJ 會將歌曲的 BPM資料寫上貼紙貼在黑膠的封套上。

--------
第二單元 : 歌曲結構


在第一單元我們用Lunatic 數BPM,在數拍過程中我們會發現這首歌每32拍就有變化, 其實歌曲結構有一定的格式, 以一組一組的拍子組來構成, 大多數拍子組是由16拍 或 32拍 構成,這領到 DJ beat mix 大為容易處理.

Phrase
大多數拍子組是由16拍 或 32拍 構成
我們稱這些拍子組為 Phrases. 一首歌大概由多個 Phrases 組成.
4 beats 組成 1 bar
4 bars 組成 1 phrase
用phrase 來看歌曲結構比較簡單。

{比喻:
細胞 組成 器官
器官 組成 肢體}

一首歌最簡單可分為3部份 :
Intro : 引子部份 ,音樂開始至歌唱部分
Verse : 歌唱部份
End : 結束部份 ,唱歌部份完成後fade out 或突然完結 (cold end).

{比喻: 頭身足}

為領到我們的 DJ Beat Mixing 更有效率,我覺得歌曲需要細分成6部份 (其實可細分成十多種部份,但6部份我覺得以足夠):

Intro : 引子部份,beat mixing 用這裡mix 入
Hook : 這裡我指 Main Hook (成首歌在廣義上都有hook和melody),歌曲最明顯最吸引人注意的部份
Verse : 歌詠、韻文,唱出故事內容的部份
Chorus : 副歌、疊句
Break : 俗稱break位,歌曲中間靜下來的部份,beat mixing 用這裡mix出
Outro : 本身不是一個字,DJ界為襯托Intro此字而引生出來,給DJ mix出的位置。


Gaz_bo - Lunat_c (12") 這首歌的結構很齊很易理解,我用這首歌講解歌曲結構:


Intro : 32+32
Main Hook : 32
Verse : 32+32
Chorus : 32+32
Instrumental : 16
Main Hook : 32
Verse : 32+32
Chorus : 32+32
pre-break : 32
Break : 32+16
Instrumental : 32+32+32+32+32
Verse : 32+32
Chorus : 32+32
Outro : 24 fade out

不是所有歌都這樣齊beat和易數(DJ Friendly),有很多歌細碟版本是很不齊和難mix, 所以會出12"版本或 DJ service版本供DJ 播放.

Michael Jackson - Billie Jean 便是一個好例子 :

Intro : 8+32+16
Verse : 80
Pre-Chorus : 32
Chorus : 48
Verse : 80
Pre-chorus : 32
Chorus : 80
Instrumental Break : 32
Chours repeats and fades out

--------
請大家數數以下4首歌,之後的單元會用到。

習作

Gaz_bo - Lunat_c (12" Extended)

結構表:
Intro : 32+ >32
Main Hook : >32
Verse : 32+32
Chorus : 32+ 32
Instrumental : 16
Main Hook : 32
Verse : 32+32

Break : >32+16
Instrumental : 32+32+32+32+32
Verse : 32+32
Chorus : 32+32
Outro : 24 fade out

習作 2 : 請在以上(或其他)播放器中任意選歌曲中一個位置播放,再以最快速度在以上結構表中找出正在播放的位置(是那一拍子組的第幾拍),重複練習最小5次。

習作 3 : 在以上的結構表中我放了5個">"符號在幾個目標拍子組的左邊,請用最快速度在播放器中找出目標位置,按Pause,再按Play 就會播放該拍子組的第一拍,重複練習最小3次。

{開竅貼士} 你要"看"到 64拍後的歌曲部份。 (比喻: 好像駕車一樣,不可見一步行一步。)

Description :
I was back to the music scene in 1997.... I bought a new Fostex 4-tracker....

I was away from the music scene for some time (1991-1996), I was back but there were lots to catch up.... The music scene at that time was booming. Lots of new exciting music styles were formed, just to name a few: Hard House, Drum & Bass, Dub, Progressive House, Progressive Trance, Electro, Electro Disco, Breakbeat...

I was back and I was fierce this time. With harder, deeper and insane underground music.

Thanks.

Description : A hysteria mix, listen to my mixing in track 7,8,9 and you will know what I mean.
The programming of this mix differs from the usual "buliding up" style, it's from fast to slower (roller coaster style mood programming).


竭斯底里式的 Rave Party Mix
在90年代, 我愛上了Rave Parties...
我的風格開始改變, 注入了 Rave Party 式的感覺
唔係人人能頂得順這種 "竭斯底里" 式的高壓力音樂.
但我很喜歡, 憑自己感覺照做這類mix, 所以這個mix 名為 The Uncompromised Mix (不妥協 mix).

我學故我在....
我變故我在....
我愛故我在....

Note 1
鍾意聽o既朋友就fing 晒頭, 唔鍾意聽o既老婆就擰晒頭!

Note 2
打歌唔一定由慢打上去勁 :)
這是一個實例由勁打番落慢!

Note 3
Everything HARD, DEEP & DARK :
Hard House -> Hard Techno -> Hard Trance -> Hard Progressive -> Deep House :)

Thanks.

Description :
I was not in a good mood one day, I pressed the record button and mixed songs up with mix positions I had never used before.
My mind had to focus on the mix and this let me escaped from reality for an hour...

This was a home practise session, "mix impromptu", exploring new mix positions, often the results have good and bad surprises.

I did a minor fix in it and I think this mix is worth sharing...

I found this mix a few days ago, I listened to it and I think I have transformed my feelings and recorded in it also...
I can "hear" how my feeling changed in the mix, bad mood from "Yo Vivire" to "S.O.S. Fire In The Sky", try to cheer up during "Fashion Girl" to "High Society Girl ". However, my mood went down again start from "Rent" till "Suspense".

Live mix can reflect the DJ's feeling.

Thanks.

"Destructive editing" {record & overwrite previous work with new work}
"Linear editing"
I personally love this mix very much but due to two little careless mistakes which I could not roll back to fix under the so call "Destructive editing" mechanism, I had to stop again to think for the right tool.

"Non-destructive editing"
"Non-linear editing"
* Innovative Quality Software - Software Audio Workshop (SAW)
I wanted to try out computer sequencer software which could give me the "Non-destructive editing" and "Non-linear editing" capabilities I needed.
My friend gave me a trial copy of SAW. However, all my new hardwares seemed not ready for that :
- My new PC with 386 CPU seemed not powerful enough for the job;
- Taiwan soundcard could not handle multi-track and I was not able to mail a Turtle Beach Soundcard to Macau. (Sound Blaster Live with EMU10k chipset not existed in the market yet);
- Hard disk drive with 5,600 RPM was rare, nowhere I could find one in Macau, the shop keeper asked me to try to get SCSI hard disk drives from Hong Kong which had a ridicules price tag.
So I had to wait again...

With the advancement in technology and price were going down with hardwares, I finally could try out computer editor / sequencer softwares.

Length : 47:11
Year : 1987

Equipment used:
2 Technics Turntables & 1 basic mixer without cross fader.



Description :
Track 08, 09, 10 was a live "Showoff" session to amaze the audience (and to defend my ranking in their hearts) with my newly acquired "Quick Beat-matching Technique". I changed serveral records within one song's break in front of the crowd (and the disco manager). I moved the pitch control syncronizing the beat spontaneously while the track was already playing "on-air".

In the 80's, Beat-Sync seemed to be a hard-to-achieve technique for beginners. However, it was not difficult for a hard working dj who was mixing over a hundred songs every night....

當年間唔中 都要出下招 比 D 驚喜 給 斑熟客 及同事 看, 補住自己個 Ranking.

在 80年代, 夾beat在外行人和初學者眼中可能是很難的事.

其實對晚晚夾beat一百幾十次的勤力dj來說 因工多藝熟關係, 早已是很基本的"功"作.

今次是1987年10月某日 剛練成的招式叫 " 超快速 夾beat 大法 " .

一般mixing是在播放中的歌 的break位到 之前就要 夾好下一首歌的beat, cue 好位, 一到break位就要出街.

今次的 " 驚人" 演出是在一首歌的一個break位中先後夾三次beat, 入三次歌, 基本是表演break 位已到先放上唱碟, cue好位就出街, 出街先至夾beat, 出緊街同時調Technics盤的 Pitch Control.

當晚表演給圍著dj booth 的 Disco Manager, Assistant DJ / Light man, disco captain 及 客人 看. 看 到他們 "目定口呆" 的樣子 我很開心, 滿足晒我的表演慾. 80年代就是可以這麼簡單, I Like.
