Sorry if this has already been answered - I couldn't find a search function in this forum engine.

In the Mixed In Key analysis of Armin van Buuren (Season 1, Episode 1) the presenter tells us that the first mixed is known as a "Jaws" mix (@~36 secs) ... Sorry for being a bit dim, but could someone please explain the mechanics of how to perform this mix, please? I'd like to have a go at it myself.

Searches in Google just bring me back to the above video.

Hey Dan,

Here is the logic behind the Jaws mix. Imagine playing the C Minor Scale on a piano, and shifting your hand up to play the Db Minor. What happens here is a super dissonant change. If you listen to the theme song from Jaws, they used two similar notes to alternate between, because it’s such a tense interval.

Let me know if it helps :)


Thanks James ... That's really helpful ... I'll have a play on a keyboard to get the hang of it!
