Pure Noise DJ Mix: Autumn Nights 2012
It’s cold, dark, and grey, and all I want to do is eat carbs and sleep… Hello late November! On the bright side though, it’s time for another installment of my seasonal mix series, Autumn Nights!

My first Autumn Mix was a big departure from the ones that came before; it was an eclectic mix of tracks with wildly varying tempos that focused on mixing tones and textures as opposed to beat-matching. I wanted to follow up that mix with one that retained a similar vibe, but followed a more linear path, set to a steady 4/4 pulse. Autumn Nights keeps a lot of the signature “autumnal” sonic elements: colorful swirling psychedelic synths, melancholy ambiance, and glitchy surface textures- but overall is a much more straightforward house mix.
When picking out tracks, one thing I kept in the back of my head was the concept of temperature. I wanted the mix to capture the contrasting temperatures of an autumn evening; the feeling of being bundled up and warm on a chilly night. If my Autumn mix was a walk through the park blazing with fall foliage colors, Autumn Nights is a cozy night in with a hot toddy (new favorite fall drink, btw!) watching the cold wind blow the bare tree branches outside your window.
While the tracks here definitely all stick to a steady 4/4 beat, I still played around a lot with mixing different tones, textures, and vibes that fit my overall framework. As such, the mix moves around freely between the warmer tones of sultry deep house, and the chillier tones of Kompakt style melodic techno, and glitchy tech-house.
I hope you enjoy the mix as much as I enjoyed making it! Mediafire link is below, along with the tracklist:
