And... another megamix done. Hardtrance megamix 06 now on deck

And... another one goes down.  They're going fast!  Anyway, here's my sort data for six.  I'll comment briefly on the data.
  • DJ Scot Project - O (Overdrive) [Arome Remix]
  • Mass Effect - Alphascan [Arome Remix]
  • DJ Scot Project & Derb - The Sound [DJ Scot Project Mix] (already have a Scot Project song in the mix)
  • JK Walker - Re-Initiate [JK Walker 2004 Mix]
  • DJ Scot Project - F (Future Is Now) [Original Mix] (already have a Scot Project song in the mix)
  • Tommy Pulse - Walhalla
  • DJ Wag - Second Step [DJ Wag Reworx]
  • Dave Joy - First Impression [S.H.O.K.K. Mix]
  • Arome - Here We Go [DJ Scot Project Remix] (already have a Scot Project song in the mix—Arome is an alias for Scot Project)
  • DJ Wag - Still In Progress [Born Slippy Dub] (already have a DJ Wag song in the mix)
  • S.H.O.K.K. - Isn't It All a Little Strange? [Flutlicht Remix]
  • DJ Virus - All Your Bass [Le Brisc Remix] (just used another mix of this same song in the last megamix)
  • John Paesano & Braden Kimball - Daredevil Theme [W!SS Trance Remix]
  • Reverb ft Flash Gordon - Providence [Reverb's Vocal Mix]
  • Guyver - Funky Ass Beatz
  • Hennes & Cold - The Second Trip [Nick Sentience Remix]
  • DJ Merly Dee - Paradise [Original Mix]
I almost canceled "The Second Trip" before I caught that "The Second Trip" and "Second Step" weren't the same song.  Whoops!  Read carefully!  As you can see, I usually try to do them in the order that they come up, which is kind of the point.  If I can't because I have duplicates or other files that I don't want to use as described above, I usually try to take the first one that comes up and cancel anything further down the list from that first one.

So that said, the cleaned up megamix 06 list looks like this:
  1. DJ Scot Project - O (Overdrive) [Arome Remix]
  2. Mass Effect - Alphascan [Arome Remix]
  3. JK Walker - Re-Initiate [JK Walker 2004 Mix]
  4. Tommy Pulse - Walhalla
  5. DJ Wag - Second Step [DJ Wag Reworx]
  6. Dave Joy - First Impression [S.H.O.K.K. Mix]
  7. S.H.O.K.K. - Isn't It All a Little Strange? [Flutlicht Remix]
  8. John Paesano & Braden Kimball - Daredevil Theme [W!SS Trance Remix]
  9. Reverb ft Flash Gordon - Providence [Reverb's Vocal Mix]
  10. Guyver - Funky Ass Beatz
  11. Hennes & Cold - The Second Trip [Nick Sentience Remix]
  12. DJ Merly Dee - Paradise [Original Mix]
Sometimes I don't think too hard about stuff you get, though.  I cut some Scot Project and DJ Wag because I had too much of them both that came up, but I didn't think too hard about the fact that I got a S.H.O.K.K. song immediately following a S.H.O.K.K. remix.  And that just a little bit down from that, I've got a Reverb song—Reverb being Marco Guardia, one of the main guys from S.H.O.K.K.  I had a similar situation with Max Savietto on megamix #5.  Of course, in the case of both of them, they hadn't yet made any appearances.  Scot Project, DJ Wag, and A*S*Y*S (and to a slightly lesser extent, Tommy Pulse) are appearing all the time in all of the mixes, so I'm a little bit more sensitive to over-representing them.

Where's the cut-off between "that's a lot of the same artist" and "that's too much of the same artist, and the next track needs to be skipped and held off for another megamix some other time"?  I dunno.  It's a sometimes a little more of an art than a science.
