have a good weekend people. we are heading down to osaka to see donato dozzy play tonight, and dasha rush play tomorrow. should be fun.


  1. Outstanding stuff! Cheers for sharing!

  2. you're right about him being under-rated. he's ace.

    also can you let dozzy leave japan and come to the uk. pretty please. ;-)

  3. one of the best mixes i have heard in a long time :)
    promomixes are great, patrick walkers was ace too!

  4. Looking forward to this. Serious old-skool tuneage - Clarke's Aphrohead remix, Booster, Station To Station. What an amazing compo True Spirit was too - Karl O'Connor, Fumiya Tanaka, Mills's Late Night remix... Class, class, class. <3

  5. i don't really get this underrated tag myself. everyone i know who knows their techno thinks he's ace.

    @darren 3rd December Corsica Studios Bleep Party.

  6. all i have to say is...

    maw'fugger nailed it. in more ways than one.

  7. @jonnyp same goes for all of my friends but oh well...
    be sure to check out the peter van hoesen mix too :D

  8. @jonnyp cheers for the heads up, just found out this morning. excellent news

  10. ♥♥♥ this. So nice to hear a fresh set of this older style of techno again (that I cut my teeth on). Thanks to all.

  11. this is sooo good, absolutely in love with this mix!

  12. This is definitely an amazing mix. I'm so happy I found it. It's a real keeper as well as a nice guide to classic techno. And thanks for the tip Rokas, there are some sweet mixes there. A real nice idea I must say.

    And as to the debate of whether SS/JM is underrated; I'd have to say no, today he isn't for those of us in the know (not exactly the definition of mainstream), but I sure as hell was surprised that he's been active for this long. It took me a listen before I even bought into the date in the title. Should have started with the track list, but when the subject says Silent Servant I jump.

  13. Good lord. This one is getting me in touch with all my favorite records again.

    Good stuff!
