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!

Ten Years Lost

The more things change, the more things stay the same. I could just as well leave this post at that. Ten years ago Tom started this site with the basic idea of highlighting music that is overlooked by other outlets. The same frustrations that brought about the blog still stand. It may seem like we…
