© John FlemingJohn 00 Fleming's latest blog makes for an interesting read having been restricted by the limits of a standard compact disc he may have mixed his last CD come this November...

John 00 Fleming’s comments are always ones rich with opinion as he’s a DJ and producer who never minces his words. He is before anything purely a DJ and that may explain why its only this year he will releases his debut artist album ‘Nine Lives’, which you can win a copy of right here. His latest blog is a cracking read and one you should really take a few minutes to have a look at as John seems to be calling time on the traditional mix CD. With just 80 minutes to play with, the humble compact disc just can’t contain what John 00 Fleming’s creativity has to throw at it.

    I’ve just come to the end of a huge Australian tour, these kind of tours give me plenty of thinking space while at 35,000 feet due to the long flights involved. I had a very sad thought, but yet a very liberating move forward all in the same moment. Fresh off the back of mixing and creating my 2-Hour mix for Global Trance Grooves 100th edition next week, I was amazed at how my creative flow was allowed to breathe completely unrestricted.

    I edited all the tracks, added extra synths, pads, fx and treated this like a long 2-hour remix. Hours of care and attention was put into the mix, in exactly the same way I did my BBC Radio Essential mix.

    These kinds of mixes represent the true John 00 Fleming. I always say I’m a DJ first, and these mixes allow me to flex my skills of a DJ. It takes me hours of preparation, finding the music, and then programming it. Analyzing all frequencies to ensure the tracks fit perfectly together. Constantly replying making sure the energy levels head in the direction I want. Then that’s before the hours of writing all those extra details, synths, fx etc.

    Anyone can buy a copy of Ableton and create mixes these days. You can find thousands of DJ mixes via Podcasts, radio shows and Soundcloud with tracks simply mixed together. It’s for this reason I put so much effort into my own, to show I care about the job I’m doing.

    I’ve released over 30 mix compilations over a span of 15 years, as I look off the back of mixing my recent 2-Hour Global mix, CD’s now seem restrictive. The obvious being I’m limited to 80 minutes mix on each CD. From my past experience, the label/company you are doing the mix for, tries to have some sort input asking you to put some of their own ‘family’ tracks in there.

    Licensing can also be an issue, trying to get some of the tracks you want to use cleared, yet the strange twist in today’s world labels are more than happy to support me using their tracks on radio mixes. This will be due to the huge exposure they get, as my Radio show/Podcast far exceeds the amount of sales a CD would sell, especially in today’s climate.

    So this could be the end of the CD mix compilation for me. The end of a 15-year era. But the start of a new beginning of my Essential mix esq mixes. I think I know which ones you’ll prefer! I’ve code named this latest mix ‘JOOF Editions Vol 1’. I vision me building this catalogue making an annual mix. Who knows where this will lead, I have no restrictions and my mind is already buzzing with more ideas of how I can make these mixes extra special. This very moment takes me back to when I created the White label series, these being the albums I’m most proud of. I’m back in that same moment, same space, both creatively and musically. My 2000/01 Essential mixes also hit at that same time too. That Fleming is back!

    This really is a new beginning. Liberating.

    Oh and for the CD junkies out there. You’ll have one last goodbye. I’m contracted to mix one side of Passions CD that will be released in November. I feel this will be my final goodbye to the CD. This album will sit proudly next to the other 30 albums closing the end of a chapter. A very proud moment.
