Harmonic convergence

Montreal's The Mole playing a sick mix of "Is It All Over My Face?" at MUTEK Tijuana. (You'd better believe it was.) The gig was in an old Jai Alai venue. Once again, rave culture proves how to repurpose dead urban spaces. Shame the betting was closed, though. The Mole's live set, using Ableton Live, two decks, and a fistful of effects, lies right on the cusp between Theo Parrish and Thomas Brinkmann, salvaging beatdown b-lines only to bury them in heaps of delay, and then shovel them out again with steely snare drums. My money is most definitely on this guy to totally own things in the '04. Let's just finish the damn record now, Collin.
