mnml ssgs mx32: anthony parasole
after a short break, we are back with another ssg mix, this time from new york's anthony parasole. during my brief trip to NYC in february, i went to a 'save the cannibals' party where he was playing along with cassy. i was impressed with what i heard from anthony and thought he'd fit well into our mix series. he agreed and i'm happy to share the result with you all.
anthony has been making a name for himself over the last year or two as part of a resurgent new york scene. besides dj'ing, he recently co-founded the deconstruct label with levon vincent, which has begun in fine fashion with the 1st two releases from levon being very well received. anthony has also started along with bryan kasenic (beyond booking/bunker) the house-n-home loft-party series, which has been bringing a string of quality house and techno acts to new york. and with the next deconstruct release, he'll be making production debut. so all in all, anthony is a busy boy...
anthony's mix is another all vinyl effort, recorded in one take. what i like about it is the whole mix has a really great flow and structure. it all fits together (this is very important for me). simply put, this is house with balls - the mix has a real raw feeling to it that really appeals. anyway, enough from me. you can hear it for yourself:

the 3rd deconstruct is a double ep featuring a dj qu track, 'party people clap', along with remixes from anthony parasole and fred p , levon vincent, and jus-ed. the next house-n-home party is on 1 august featuring santiago salizar and dj qu. after that will be their one 1 year anniversary on 12 september with 2 special guests. plenty to look forward to... for more info about anthony, make sure to check his myspace.
big thanks to anthony for the mix, and also to levon who mastered it (yes, the ssgs know how to treat you well). tracklisting will be up next week along with the next ssg mx: another repeat performance, this time care of lerosa, who has done a special dj set of house classics. after all the headfuck techno, we figure it is time for a bit of house. enjoy!
