Wanted to through a couple of shouts out to some albums this week so I’ve packed in some pieces from the London Elecktricity Medschool scans, The Music Factory from Utah Jazz and one piece from Lenzmans, All for You EP. The cover art was is a love letter to sunandbass – I didn’t make it this year – sorry.
One the Medschool scans there was the Electrosoul System remix of Swivel. This particular piece did some nice mood shifting on The Vanguard Projects – Stiches, which always gets me. Form the same remix LP, due to being a fanboy, I have to put in the Kimyan Law remix of That Thing you Do. The Music Factory from Utah Jazz also gets a few plays with Exploration, Growth Comes and rounding the mix off with ‘One of a Kind’.
The day before putting the mix together Lenzman also released his debut EP, All For You, on new project, The North Quarter. From that piece I selected All Alone, which had instant impact on the soul for this emotional nutcase. On the point of deep emotion there are also two pieces form Kid Drama’s Covering Ground EP, which my ears came embarrassing late to.
I’ve already mentioned the inclusion of The Vanguard Projects – Stiches, sublime but I also wanted to throw in the intoxicated floor shaker Karma. At this junction the mix seemed to work nicely with Baily and Tali’s Stargazing and Command Strange – Try to Understand, two tracks from the Liquid V club sessions release that have consumed me on the dancefloor.
For the essential bow to greatness I thought it was time to give Origin Unknowns – Truly One a good thrashing. I also picked out an obscure Calyx piece from my early days, a remix responsible for my current appreciation of the artist, a remix packed full of leftfield in composition and truly challenged me when I picked it all those years ago.
It’s also worth mentioning the mix intro from Hybrid Minds – Skeletons, the second release on their new project, a project worth keeping an eye on. Not least because of the precise packaging and sexy vinyl they have put out twice now. When the world ends the gramophone owners will be begging you to make an appearance.
