Alright folks, second video in a selection I am doing on a program entitled “mixed in key”.
Now, first one and we will try to look at that, secondly, I want you to have a look at that, that is a black pen. That is the only ware that you actually found in the house and it is attached to a string rivet and the string rivet is attached to that speaker. There, the reason it is attached is so, it does not go wookies.
I have told the entire family, if that goes wookies, I will personally circumcise the lot of them including the guinea pig outside, just kidding.
Alright, take a look at that, if you can see first of all, hopefully you can, but you can see Bs and As. Now, the Bs are known as major keys. The As are known as minor keys.
What is a major and what is a minor. Well, first of all, in the UK, especially where we have loads of minor used to think down deep and get caught. Nothing to do without or so whatsoever, but here is the deal, I will need to pick out your favorite track. Always have a listen to it. Now, first, does it make you feel you are euphoric, does it build you up, does it make you feel high or does it bring you down and does it make you feel low? Does it make you just feel as though you know, you are chugging along. Well, here is the deal, the ones that are very low and make you feel a bit low, not necessarily depressed but just you know, you are chugging along. You are just quite happily floating along with the music, quite often will be known as the minor keys,
As supposed to the ones that make you feel euphoric and jumped up and happy and just bubbly, they are the major keys. Now, quite often you will find the likes of hardcore music, trance, techno, the very hard edge music. We will have he minor keys. Some will probably put comments and you have got loads of major, right fair enough.
And quite often, you will find the likes of the funky-house and the soulful stuff at major keys. Alright, let us have a look at this go again. Now, basically, this is how it works. Let us say for example we have a track and it is a major key. Let us say, this one here, 11B. Now we could go and play another track this 11B tracks after it. And another one and another one and another one, but, after continuing, you just do these all the time, the crowd will enjoy what you are doing but you are not really taking them on a specific journey so, maybe, go down here to the next key, to 10B and then to 9, 8, 7 and you kind of going all the way around.
But then you can do other things as well. You could go say from here, across to 10A. Once you got the 10A then, maybe you can go 9A, 8, 7, ,6 ,5 ,4, 3, 2. So let us go back to 10B, alright, we can go say to 11. Like I said, we can go to 10A so we can go from 10B to 11B or 10B to 10A.
But you cannot do them or you could of you want to but it would sound awful but when I see you cannot, maybe you can get away with it if you just mix some of the actual beats. But you cannot go from 10B to 9A or 10B to 11A.
In other words, you cannot go across because that is where we start getting clashes in keys and it sounds rather dodgy.
So, 10B to 10A then maybe 11A, 12A, but then from here, you could go, to 12B and from 12B, you can go to all your beat and carry on around like so.
I hope you get the general sort of idea. Now this is what I have done. I got the program out. I then loaded the tracks there and all of the actual keys. Now, what I have done is I sorted through those tracks. I got a few keys that are very close together. Like on the scale here. Now hopefully, in the next video, and I will put it underneath here, I am going to do a mix and I will show you how I constructed it. I will also show you the names of the tracks to the video and I will actually show you the keys in relation to this. So, it will give you the general idea of what you can do. Alright now, why do I want to use this?
Well, let us face it, if you have got an absolutely vast record collection or CD collection like me, and let us say you are in a club environment or anywhere and you need to get a track out ASAP, and you just go diving there and grab something.
Well, of course the trouble is and less you know your tunes and a lot of DJ do know that tunes. If you do not know your tunes as well as you should do, then you can just grab a track that is an appropriate key, bang it on and then at least then you know, there will be a continuity with the music.
Well, alright, this is video number two, hopefully we are going to do a whole bunch more and like I said, in the next one, hopefully we will get that mix underneath here. Practice and enjoy.
