i wasn't planning on posting any sets for a while, but there are just so many good ones i am listening to right now, i had to share! before i get into them, i am presuming everyone here already has the livepa from PvH and the dj mix from steffi over at LWE. if not, hurry up and get them. ok, onto the rest:
liasons dangereuses mixtape, 15/6/1989 pt 1 - pt 2 - pt 3: well, this is not exactly new. but i dug it up again last week. and it has been on repeat ever since. it is ridiculous how much good shit there is in this 3 hour megamix. it still blows my mind now, i can't even imagine how this would have sounded to fresh ears back in '89. respect! [from memory, one of the DL links is labeled wrong, but these are the right files.]
maurice fulton - bubbletease 51 mix: i used to follow the bubbletease mixes, but then they disappeared. i didn't realise he was still doing them until i saw someone on twitter lose their shit over this mix. and rightly so. damn. maurice. is. so. good. the scary thing about this mix is that it is made up of all his own productions. maurice is criminally under-rated. undoubtedly one of the best producers out there. a true house genius. impressive that a legend like maurice can be keeping it fresh after so many years. again, respect!
shed livepa @ sonar lab, 2009: this one kinds of speaks for itself. shed knows how to bring the hammer. his music has so much force to it. one thing i really like about this recording is you can hear a real development in his livepa in comparison to the bodytonic one from last year.
franco cangelli - hybridize five mix: to be honest, i normally like, but never love, franco's mixes. this is a reflection on me more than anything - he always plays plenty of great records and can mix fine, so no problem there. anyway, the good news is that franco and i have finally connected, as a result of his latest mix. it is a powerful set of deep, emotive techno. nice... the first hour has its moments, but it is the second hour that really does it for me. builds an amazing vibe and feel throughout the whole set. recommended.
roger 23 @ studio 80, 27.05.2009: roger 23 is someone i've always known by reputation, but never heard, so i'm glad to have finally come across a mix of his. i can see he deserves a rep. this is a lovely mix. he is part of the swayzak soundsystem and this does have some records from, and the feel of, those great groovetechnology and fabric swayzak mix cds. again, just take me word and download it. you'll be glad you did.
ok, that's all. think i've found an appropriate mix for 'sunday sounds', and one of these days i might try to do a more substantive post again. but lets not get our hopes up too high.
