Counter Weight was recorded using the Intimidation Apex Gold, a simple but effective, fully analogue, DJ mixer featuring only two channels and rotary volume knobs in place of line faders, (totally old school)) a cross fader and triple EQ on each channel plus gain. Being a fully analogue mix right from the vinyl on Technics SL1200’s, through the mixer, and direct to the CDR, the result is unique and really quite amazing! Unlike most of today’s digital tracks recorded through digital mixers, the recording came out wonderfully full of dynamic range, volume, warmth and soul! Counter Weight is as untouched as it possibly can be from the digital technology that seems to be drowning us, perhaps as a reminder of what we have all lost over the last couple of decades. No post effects, mastering or sweetening have been applied to this mix and it has been encoded using the absolutely highest Mp3 resolution and bit rate possible. Counter Weight is just that - a heavy, meaningful mix, to balance out the noise and mindlessness from this new “digital” century. Baaaaaaaamm!!!! Only Monkey’s and Tigers can make the impossible possible! Living the analogue dream, The Drunken Monkey.
