mnml ssgs mx36: falko brocksieper
this week we've got a real treat for you: falko brocksieper has dug deep into his record crates and pulled out just over 2 hours worth of hidden gems and lost treasures. i really like falko's thinking in doing this mix - rather than just going for obvious choices, he has focused on quality tracks that we all might have forgotten about during the constant quest for something new, the latest record. PC describes the mix perfectly: "it's a music that teaches you something about groove-based electronic music; that reminds you of important things; that re-focuses and refreshes you by showing you the new and the old, the glittering of the half-forgotten... classic, not plastic."
i want to tell you more about falko's mix, but it is best just to listen. it is a careful, complex mix that has great depth and rewards multiple listens. this is definitely something the ssgs have come away from feeling like we've learnt something. this mix really shows off falko's skills as a DJ and his great knowledge for the music. much respect.
mnml ssgs mx 36: some old junk from falko's shelf
falko has a new release coming on contexterrior (#35), 'adobe', and along with benjamin fehr they have produced together as 'the result', and have an ep, 'flagship', coming out on brouqade rec. nice. he is playing a bunch of gigs in berlin, and other places, all the info you can find at his myspace.
tracklisting to follow next week. huge thanks to falko. i know he spent quite a bit of time digging to come up with this, and it was definitely worth it. enjoy.
