  2. A++

    I like the 'guerilla marketing' for this. Too often an artist or club name gives away too many expectations of sound and composition. Its nice to listen with a completely open mind. Great set

  7. will you ever disclose that secret?

  8. beautiful set. this definitely sounds like donato dozzy. there are like 3 or 4 tunes in this mix that he played at the bunker. the vibe and mixing totally fit his style too. also the "DD" in "DDKH" would make sense... just gotta find out what the "KH" means =P

    thank you ssgs!!

  9. My question: why are so many people so keen to 'out' the DJ, whoever she may be?

    Would that change the meaning of the set?

    If it did, would that also mean that the music really doesn't speak for itself, that, at the very least, it needs captions, and spokespeople, in order to make 'proper sense' in a context?

  10. Could be very simple too PC, i know you people seem kind of keen with all this secrecy, but the only reason i would wanna know who it is, would be that i would be able to get more from the artists (releases? other mixes?) - i can only see that as a positive thing.

  11. this mix leaves me speechless.I often find that you guys at mnmlssgs get too overwhelmed about mixes.But this one is truely a piece of art.I don't care who made it and i don't know most of the tracks here but I will listen to this one for ever.
    It is perfection.

    I enjoy so much those mixes i can listen at low volume, at home.I can rest listening to it, it's beautifully crafted with so much love for the music, and respect for my fragile ears.

    It's a keeper, a stellar mix and i thank you very much for inviting me to this journey.

  12. it already doesn't 'speak for itself' thanks to the source (this blog), the acronym, the photo... maybe you wanna wire this stuff straight to our brains some time?

    even then i'd be curious about its origins.

    ReplyDelete
  13. If the DJ's name is withheld, I'd at least appreciate a tracklisting, to support the artists (a la Unseen Selectors).

    ReplyDelete
  14. gosh.. words cannot describe how beautiful this mix is.. can we at least get a tracklist?

  16. Nice to hear Benzo sneaking in around 51 minutes...

  17. This set is just amazing, have to say I like the first part better than the second, but overall its amazing, usually not to keen on the anonymous dj thing, but have to say that loved paying attention to the music not the name of the dj, still I have to say, after recovering from the initial shock it would be great to have a tracklist, Im no dj but still would love to support the artist that are taking this music to such levels.

    Thanks a lot for posting this, after being a hardcore house addict for so many years, this is taking me (and some friends too) into a new and very interesting territory.

  18. So, will we ever see an artist or tracklist?

    Love this mix so far.

  19. @ 38:55 it's "Saudade Dub" - Coco Da Silva

    ReplyDelete
  20. @58:30 Dollkraut - "Milkmanners"

  21. would like to see more of these anon mixes on here. at least when its a big name made through this site or otherwise. dozzy/pvh etc lose nothing by not having their names out there and i really want to experience a mix like this completely blind. its like discovering dozzy for the first time all over again!

    really pissed off i read the comments here saying it was him before i listened to it. just finished there and it is sick. going straight back on in a minute.

    cheers

  22. no tracklists, no confirmations or denials. just enjoy the mix. special sounds. glad people are feeling it. this was just an experiment, but one we might have to repeat...

  24. thanks for the acknowledgment chris.

    i've heard anon mixes before, but this one is class. imo it would've fit in perfectly as ssgmx #51. i've since deleted most anon mixes off my iphone (16gb is not enough), but this one will stay on for a very long time.

  31. Amazing mix....what's the 'irritating' bleep type track(s) at 51 mins to 58 mins?

    42 minutes is great too.

  32. This mix is a masterpiece

    I couldn't give a shit who the mix is by; mystery, authenticity, its all the same to me, enjoy it. However, I want a tracklist ! Which leads me to this point;

    To be honest, I hate this whole culture of not giving tracklists.

    It reminds me of early House culture where djs would put blank stickers over their 12"s to make sure no-one knew what their 'special tracks' were - just a way to maintain their dominion over the dancefloor. In that sense something like the internet would be seen as an enemy - giving the people knowledge diminishes these egomaniacs their power.

    Of course when I'm at a party and it's all happening - only very (very) rarely will I ever go up to the dj and ask him what track he's playing - I enjoy the mystery, the overwhelming NOWness of that moment - its what party is all about.

    But if I'm at home and I'm researching music for the purposes of finding tracks and music to play that will enhance both the lives of myself and all the people I will dj too - I want to know as much as possible.

    Although I respect, admire and worship Dozzy for everything he does, why doesn't he give tracklists ! C'mon man (in the friendliest way) !

    That's not to say I think this is Dozzy. It could be, but like I said - I couldn't care less. I just want to know what tracks these are so they can be shared with more people.

    That's my two cents. I'm not sticking the boot in, just putting forward my position on this issue.

    ReplyDelete
  33. please anyone knows the track starting at min 33 ??

    ReplyDelete
  34. @ robert: thanks for your thoughts. fair enough too. i've stated my opinion on tracklists many times before, so no need to do so again here. all i'd say is generally we leave it up to the DJ. we ask for a tracklist and try to provide one, but if the DJ does not give us the tracklist (as in this case), we do not push the issue.

  38. still and desperately want to know the 9. track. it so natural and nonconventional edm :). maybe an unreleased deadbeat track.
    with that heavily grooving sound in my mind i checked all honest jons records samples at boomkat and other labels and afrobeat kind of music on other sites.
    its so funny that one particular sound can drive u nuts and gets u movin (both in a physical way and concerning motivation). on my kind of utopian way of idying a particular track, i stumbled on plenty of other very good music which somehow leads me to the conclusion that i sometimes might like the fact that there is no tracklist. An unkown track gets me digging. With the id given I would have never discovered mapstations africa chamber or wareika hill sounds, although there r complete different.
    Oh I hope I could somehow made my thought understandable :)
    but nonetheless im still interested.

  40. I know this is kind of late and maybe no one will even see this, but any hope for an ID on track "5", before the Delta Funktionen Remix (~16:30 - 20:30)?

    Such a fantastic track. And of course, it's a great mix all around.

    ReplyDelete
  41. ^ I'm still watching these posts, and would too like to know that track :) it really is a gem.

    The big question remains: what is track 2?!

    Thanks again DDKH, whoever you are . . . cough . . . Dozzy . . . question mark. You know, sure, the anonymous format is nice, but so are track lists so that we can buy the music. I don't think knowing the track IDs and avoiding the inevitable slew of requests takes from the anonymous nature of the artist.

  43. This is expertly crafted and mixed - I'm sure it would sound devastatingly good on the dancefloor at Labyrinth for example, but is also highly enjoyable at home.

  44. Bas Ror- Grief is track 14 i believe

    ReplyDelete
  45. Has anyone worked out what track 9 is? Still on the hunt for it...

    ReplyDelete
  46. i've listened to this countless times. naturally gorgeous

  47. Wish I knew what track was at the 65 minute mark. "Emotional problems. Financial troubles. Domestic violence. Grief. Addiction to alcohol and other drugs...". Such an amazing sample. Makes me want to start exploring company training videos for use in an artwork.

    ReplyDelete
  48. A.J.: As Patrick Morello already pointed out above, it's Bas roR - Grief from the Fixed Purpose 12".
    :)
