I hope you enjoy these ... and as always please feel free to upload your own mixes too!!!
I did a quick podcast this weekend, so I thought you all might enjoy it here as well. It's not necessarily an effort to define goth, but rather a go at it sideways - going first to the gut, then singing out the mouth. I'm thinking about doing these regularly, so if you'd like me to continue posting these here, please let me know!

Here's the link!


Nancy’s Place - Heart of Darkness
Radio Werewolf - Buried Alive
Seventh Séance - The Incision
Blood & Roses - Necromantra (Long Version)
Entertainment - Patroness (2004 Version)
Sad Lovers & Giants - Man of Straw (12” Version)
Persona Non Grata - The Heirs (Part I & II)
Positive Noise - Treachery!
Spiritual Bats - Sacrament
Siglo XX - Alice
Autumnfair - So Far From God
Ausgang - Pumping Heart
Gloria Mundi - The Pack
Alright here's my first submission to the G.E.P - not so much a 'Goth Hits', rather a selection of tracks that had some special meaning or significance to me when I was younger (particularly around my late teens/early twenties). I think the mix captures quite a wide variety of moods.

So here we have Goth: The Darquening.

Track listing as follows:
1. Bauhaus - Nerves
2. Einstürzende Neubauten - Kalte Sterne
3. Christian Death - Face
4. Sex Gang Children - Sebastiane
5. The Birthday Party - Figure of Fun
6. Blooding Mask - Exit
7. Fields of the Nephilim - Moonchild
8. Swans - I am the Sun
9. The Sisters of Mercy - Burn
10. Corpus Delicti - Patient
11. Siouxsie and the Banshees - Obsession
12. Dead can Dance - Frontier
13. Miranda Sex Garden - Open Eyes
14. Pale Saints - Hunted
15. Cocteau Twins - Pandora
16. Lycia - Everything is Cold
17. Goethes Erben - Gleiten

Windows users wondering which software to use to mix tracks - I found Audacity to be quite straightforward:
however you'll also need the MP3 encoder

Darker than a Bat Mix

OK, here's my first mix for the community. For the theme of this mix I decided to try to make the ultimate Goth Hits mix. It's not necessarily what I consider to be the bands best songs, more their most popular songs. I wanted to try to capture the essence of old school traditional Goth. Something to make the elder goths nostalgic and the baby bats wish they were older and had been there. Enjoy!

Darker than a Bat Mix
The Cure - A Forest
Bauhaus - Bela Lugosi’s Dead
Siouxsie & The Banshees - Cities In Dust
Swans - Power And Sacrifice
Cranes - Shining Road
Clan Of Xymox - Jasmine And Rose
Killing Joke - Love Like Blood
Switchblade Symphony - Mine Eyes
Corpus Delicti - Noxious (The Demon’s Game)
London After Midnight - Kiss
The Sisters Of Mercy - Dominion / Mother Russia
Type O Negative - Black No.1 (Little Miss Scare-All)

Welcome to the Gothic Encapsulation Project community. This community is about trying to put the purest essence of what Goth means to you in one mix. Maybe it's capturing a specific time in your life summed up with what you were listening to at the time or maybe its a broader theme like Gothic Dancefloor hits, it's up to you. The only rules are that the music should be contained within the broad genres that are considered Gothic and that it must be able to fit onto one audio CD, so cannot be any longer than 74 minutes.

This community is about collecting everyone's mixes in one place without having to go looking across the LJ universe to find them. We highly encourage all members to contribute at least one of their own mixes towards this project.

There is a variety of software out there that you can use that you can use such as Garage Band or Amadeus Pro (http://www.hairersoft.com/AmadeusPro/AmadeusPro.html). Or you can download one of the other many music editing or dj shareware programmes available online. Try searching http://www.tucows.com to find a piece of software that suits your platform.

So let us hear what you think encapsulates Goth for you.
