mnml ssgs mx09: peter van hoesen
ok, back with another ssgcast and what a beauty we have, this time from a ssg favourite, peter van hoesen. a while ago i posted about some impressive mixes by peter (or 'the hose' as i incorrectly dubbed him). after that we knew he'd be perfect for a ssgmix and luckily he agreed. again, the results are something special. rather than try to describe the mix, i'll just give you peter's description of what he tried to do with it:
"the idea behind the mix was to combine tracks i normally don't play out with a few classics and some new tunes. as the mnmlssgs mixes offer a chance to do something different i wanted to have the mix evolve - not only from start to finish, but also along the way. so it is not your usual calm beginning and pounding end, but more like a constant oscillation between dancefloor-friendly tunes and less known tracks such as dynamo, the baby ford one and a made up sound. and then there's a snippet from one of my all-time favourite experimental electronic albums, document 2, released by the australian dorobo label. to top it off i included two of my latest tracks: it is the first time i send these in to the world. no beats, only textures."
as the description suggests, peter is a producer, as well as an excellent dj. his new label 'time to express' is definitely worth keeping an eye on, with the last release including remixes from fellow ssgcaster norman nodge and shurbs. next up is the 'casual care' ep, which has a pretty serious remix from samuli kemppi (which you can hear it at samuli's myspace). more info about peter can be found at the 'time to express' site (including links to some dj sets and livepa). and if you are lucky enough to be going to labyrinth, you can catch peter doing his thing there, otherwise he is also playing what looks to be an excellent party, nyckelpigaa, in brussels.
enough talking! here is the mix and the tracklisting. thanks to peter for doing this and much respect for a fantastic mix.
