General, Mixes

sort of, but not exactly, part 1 of my “best of 2011” mixes

One day back in November I hit record on my laptop with the sole intention of encoding (for train iPod listening) some tunes that I had picked up late last year. Tom had been nice enough to pass along an extra “promo” copy of the 2010 Donato Dozzy double pack on Further and I wanted to hear it so I started with that. I realized I was in sort of an ambient techno mood, so I put on the Recast record next, which was in my 2011 top 50 pile. I can’t remember where I found the older Scott Grooves record that I had been looking for for a while, but it seemed like the best next step in terms of mood. Besides, it meshes nicely with the Area record which admittedly is a very specific tonal palette and pretty dissimilar from much other house and techno. The rest of the mix just fell into place after that, gradually picking up energy and tempo. I figured I’d post it here – despite the two older records – by way of forcing myself to finish my long overdue year-end mixes. Download it here and let me know what you think!
