What Do I Listen For When I’m Listening To What I’m Listening To

I’ve been putting together a list of tracks to have set up for a radio DJ set, and it’s interesting how much I make judgements based on listening to just a few seconds of a song. Looking back at the list I made, I’d say I was after dubstep and dubstep-esque tracks that are more melodic than wonky, more two-steppy than half-stepper.

But as I listened, it was never something so literal or premeditated. It’s the same when I’m working on a track. I’m making choices all the time without really considering why I’m making those choices. I like the results I come up with, but I wonder if other people are more methodical.

Oh and if anyone cares, here’s my track list…

Gaslamp Killer “Hell And The Lake Of Fire Are Waiting For You”
Sully “Cadillac”
Cex “Last Gasp”
Brackles “Glazed”
Martyn “All I Have Is Memories”
S.Y.N.K.R.O & Indigo “Heaven”
Pangea “Memories”
Indigo “Exhale”
Martin Kemp “No Charisma”
Zomby “Expert Tuition”
Untold “Just For You”
Silkie & Harry Craze “French Knickers”
Mount Kimbie “Serged”
El-B “Son De Cali”
A Guy Called Gerald “Meaning”
Clubroot “Talisman”
Callahan “Breakage”
Blasta “Black Muscatel”
2562 “Love In Outer Space”
Fulgeance “Lonely Night”
Floating Points “K&G Beat”
Blue Daisy feat LANote “Fall”
Scuba “Klinik”
