randombeats.com Mix Series 03: Night Terrors – The Sound of Minimal Drum and Bass

About once a month for the last year or so, I wake up in the night with what I understand to be night terrors.  These small episodes can best be described as “waking nightmares”.  More common in children, they actually started for me in adulthood. Although quite shocking at the moment, I tend to get more entertainment than terror from remembering that I did something ridiculous the night before(like searching the room for giant animals).

Night terrors can be terrifying, vivid and yet fleeting.  The tracks compiled for this mix all fit that description as well.  Some of the tracks(the untitled ones) are less fully-formed compositions, and more of a coagulation of electronic elements.  These will never be released singularly – they will only be available as part of this mix.

You will be terrified.  You will be thrilled.  When it’s over, you will have no idea what happened.  This is Night Terrors.

randombeats.com Mix Series 02: One Minute to Midnight – a Trip Hop Compilation

The next mix in this series was produced relatively quickly, and that’s because most of the groundwork was done in my head when it came time to actually compile it.

Like the last mix, several of the songs are available freely, here on randombeats.com.  Many other tracks help build this predominantly electronic-influenced mix.

Someone recently said that advances in technology have made us forget how to listen to music.  For this reason, I strongly encourage the use of one or more of the following “focus devices” during the course of this mix: big speakers, adult beverages, dim lights, and a reclined posture.  This is One Minute to Midnight.



  1. Lemn Sissay – The Flag(Man From Atlantis mix)
  2. Karl D – Foresight
  3. Karl D – 3rd Level Down
  4. Karl D – 4_03(Remix)
  5. Unkle – Unreal
  6. Portishead – Machine Gun
  7. Karl D – Evening(Karl’s Sunset mix)
  8. Kosheen – Under Fire

randombeats.com Mix Series 01: Future Chillout Dubstep

If you’ve been wondering where all the fresh content is lately, it’s because I’ve been working hard on this first installment of what I intend to be a multi-part mix series.

This first mix contains 11 dubstep tracks, sourced mainly from material available here on randombeats.com.  There are also tracks from other artists included here(some of which were remixed on the fly), especially some that you might not normally consider “dubstep-appropriate”.  However, this mix is all about breaking free from tradition and creating one’s existence in their own life.  This is Future Chillout Dubstep.

  2. Karl D – Toxin(Edit)

Karl D – November 2009 Drum n’ Bass mix

Relatively speaking, it’s been a while since the last post, no?  Did you think I forgot about you?

Actually, I’ve been enjoying a little downtime from the site.  The release of the Electronic Monk EP was somewhat of a major accomplishment(especially immediately following random beats vol. 4), so I welcomed a little rest.

I’m getting back into the swing of things by delivering to you this tough drum n’ bass mix.  This mix has some of my favorite dnb tunes right now, as well as some older favorites.  Overall this mix maximizes on loudness and keeps the energy going up until the very end.

  1. Prodigy – Voodoo People(Pendulum mix)
  2. Drumsound & Simon “Bassline” Smith – Firewall
  3. Matrix & Danny J – Domino
  4. Narcosis – Escape Route
  5. Hive – Surreal Killer
  6. Total Science – Make Me Feel
  7. SUV – Continuum

Karl D – June 2009 Hardhouse Mix

I’m playing to my strengths today by delivering this fresh hardhouse mix to you.  Although I enjoy mixing lots of different kinds of music, hardhouse is by far my favorite.

This mix has a healthy dose of funk in it – I generally don’t explore the funky side of hardhouse as much as the clubby/hardtrance stuff.

  1. Clubbsquad – C’mon Baby
  2. Lisa Pin Up – Baddest Mutha
  3. Bulletproof – Dance to the Rythm
  4. Grooveaholics – Wake up the Funk(Club Caviar Mix)
  5. Untidy Trax The Colors EP 2 – White
  6. Satellite Kids – Funky Nuts
  7. Phlash feat Steve Hill – Get a Life(Kumara Mix)

Karl D – April 2009 Dubstep Mix

Those of you who have followed this site for more than a year know that at one time I would post DJ mixes once a month.

I’m going to restart posting dj mixes on an informal schedule.  As time allows, I’ll put more up.

At the risk of becoming a dubstep-centric site(Wow, has there been a lot of dubstep stuff recently), this first short mix contains some of my favorite dubstep tunes.  Enjoy!

  1. Monstr – 4AM Brawl
  2. Kromestar – Hard Grade
  3. Common Cense with Los One – Turn the Lights Down
  4. Kromestar – Iron Dread
  5. Grimejah – Alarm
  6. Orien – Sleeplessness
