My EP 'Nested Worlds' on Anode Records is now available to pre-order from the following outlets. It will be released on 26 January.
Listen to previews here on SoundCloud:
I have finally completed my series of ten tracks. They are all intentionally club-style techno tracks made in a retro 90s-inspired style, using a collection of hardware (i.e. not on the computer) to see what I could do and what I could learn from the process.
I'm now working on a set of more refined ambient and / or dubby re-works of these tracks - reprocessing and reusing some of the recorded elements. I expect to get some of those completed in the next two months, studio time allowing. Studio time is quite sporadic due to this being my spare-time hobby, and having a lot of work on at the moment and of course a family who presumably want to see me from time to time 🙂
This mix was recorded in May 2000 in Leeds, on my trusty Technics 1210s. This is 5 years on from the last one posted so the mixing is pretty respectable by this stage.
We start off with some electro tracks from Simulant, Anthony Rother, and UR, then shift into 4-4 techno via Dave Angel's gorgeous remix of Model 500's 'I Wanna Be There'. On the B-side it's more melodic with tracks from (Weatherall side project) Deanne Day and Plaid among others.
Restored from cassette March 2017
Another old very old DJ mix recovered from tape. This was done on my belt drive Ariston decks in 1995. The levels are all over the place and there's more dodgy scratching and and ill conceived back-spins! But no happy hardcore this time (you may or may not be pleased to hear).
