keeping things ticking
sorry guys, it has been a busy week or two for the ssgs. more soon. but just to keep everyone happy, a few sets i've been listening to:
STL promomix 2007: dug this up today for the first time in a while. given all the love for STL of late, i thought people might be keen for this as it flew under the radar a bit. great mix. get on it.
marcel fengler @ planet rose 31.1.09: it's fengler, enough said. i know i don't like doing IDs, but if anyone can tell me what the record is that comes in around the 17 minute mark, i'd be a happy ssg.
ben klock FACT mix: guessing most of you all have this by now, but just in case...
john osborn 'ceylon royale' mix: i'm really lacking the brain power to say anything of use right now, but if i am posting it, it means i like it. that should be sufficient.
silent servant @ re_invent: oursoundtracks is a nice little site that just got brought to my attention. got a good collection of mixes, many of which i havent seen elsewhere, such as this beauty from our man silent servant.
to finish off, there was a really fantastic response to the jost & lawrence set i posted last week, so i'll try to make a habit of posting classic sets. these are two sets from around the same time as the jost & lawrence one. the early '00s were a really special time music-wise, well for me at least... it was also when kompakt were really coming into their own (from memory), led by michael mayer, the man with the midas touch. well that really should be in past tense... one of the great disappointments of recent years is mayer's fall for grace. he still has moments, but he certainly isn't the dj he once was. there was a time when every record he dropped was pure gold - so much inspiration, feeling, beauty. i just don't feel it from him anymore. the difference is seen with particular clarity between the two immer cds, with the 2nd being a horrible parody of the first. anyway, here are two mixes from mayer that i'd put on equal footing with the first immer mix. again, these are mixes i go back to very regularly. mayer at his very best...
