Roadtrip to Austin

Headed down to Austin tomorrow with my good friend Eric Marsh (writes with some of his 9 to 5 co-conspirators @ Running Downhill). I have a booklet of burnt discs, most of them mixes ranging from techno to deep house and disco. The only rock I'm bringing with is a CD-R I made of Seaweed's Spanaway LP with Quicksand's Slip LP. I also put together a compilation of the excellent Winter Mutiny Dubs series - 60mins or so of dub originals and WMD edits, with an original of my own tacked on at the end ("Kleenecks sketch," which you can hear @ my very own myspace).

Also put together a hot mess of a mix. Just pressed record and played some records. Some nice transitions, some terrible ones, but great tracks (I think) nonetheless. Includes: Laurine Frost, Ben Klock, Sound Stream, wBeez, Jeff Mills, Surgeon, Reboot, Aki Latvamaki, Sophie Nixdorf, Radio Slave, Shed remix of Substance, a Golden Groove edit, and an edit by John Camp (aka Jaz).

Download the mix here, and post a comment / email me if you'd like a complete tracklist, I'll have it sorted when I return.

Wish us luck, we may need it.

  4. Nice mix here, very raw and ready. Is this all decks and vinyl?

  5. Thanks, Jason. It is indeed two decks + a mixer, all vinyl.

  6. Those Ben Klock tracks off "Before One" all sound amazing pitched down. That was the, uh, tactile inspiration for the mix - pitching down fast records. The obvious/metaphysical inspiration was road trip / late night drive.

    The disco was self-flagellation after what I thought was an obvious mistake in the mix that the recording didn't pick up as badly as I thought it would.
