A new mix
As all but the most intermittent of readers will have noticed, I'm long overdue for an update. Fortunately I've got a good excuse: today Rayna du Niord of the always-engrossing Modifyer-Modifying blog has posted my installment in her ongoing series Process, in which DJs and musicians submit not only a mix but also a document explaining how and why the mix came together. (Other contributors to the project: DIRTY Soundsystem's Guillaume Sorge, Mikael Stavostrand, [a]pendics.shuffle, Someone Else, Popnoname, Michael F. Gill, Chelonis R. Jones, and many others whose company I'm honored to share.)
To go to the mix and read my annotated notes, click here or on the image above. To preserve the holistic nature of the project I won't link directly to the mix from here, but as a teaser, the setlist includes tracks from Touane, Gui Boratto, Rekleiner, Laven & MSO, Alfonso Mango, Agnés, Phage & Daniel Dreier, The Chemical Brothers, Solomun, Sleeper Thief, Laps, and Cobblestone Jazz. Buried amongst my anecdotes you'll also find a news announcement of sorts that I'm sure many will find surprising. You heard it there first.
