All sets are off: #1

At long last, I've hooked myself up with some server space, so hopefully a minor deluge of mixes is forthcoming.

Here's the schaffel mix that I put together for Sonar a la Carte this summer. Recorded live, no edits. (Eg, go easy on me in the loose spots.) The levels are a little low, so you may need to listen loud. Click here to download the mix (92MB). I've moved the file to a .mac homepage, so you may need to rename the file with a ".mp3" extension in order to save it correctly. Let me know if you encounter problems.

Jürgen Paape, Ballroom Blitz (Speicher/Kompakt)
Electronicat, Amat Salé (Disko B)

I swear I'm hearing Schaffelkosheen! Where's Rachel Stevens?! :-)

Posted by: JoB at August 12, 2004 04:35 PM

you're right! the kosheen samples are in the WB track.
maybe i'll slip some rachel stevens into volume 2.... heh heh.

good work philip! sure beats listening to it with those crappy Sonar headphones :)

Posted by: manuel at August 12, 2004 04:59 PM

Oh yay!

Thanks for this. I've been looking for a good overview of shuffle tracks for awhile, and this is tops!

Had to chuckle at the title too... nice one mayn.

Excellent work Philip! Currently passing this along to all my friends - hope I don't overwhelm your server.

When am I going to hear this amazing set in LA?

*shufflin' around the office*

Is that vocal sample around ~19 minutes Licht und Farben by Rollergirl?

Posted by: qDot at August 16, 2004 01:02 PM

Ah... very nice mix. Feels like I'm back in Köln.

Posted by: Brendan at August 16, 2004 02:40 PM

Watch out Phil, you've been Metafiltered.

Hope you have cheap hosting! :)

Posted by: Eli Bingham at August 16, 2004 04:32 PM

I saw that! Crikey, I'm glad I moved that sucker over to the .mac homepage today - I was already veering dangerously close to overstepping my bandwidth limit. Note to self: next time, compress at a lower rate than 192...!

(Thanks to everyone that's spread the word on this! It's lovely to get to be heard for once - a far cry from my usual, sparsely-populated club nights.)

Posted by: Philip Sherburne at August 16, 2004 04:43 PM

awesome mix Phil. been overdosing on Dntel/Postal Service/Death Cab lately. Be good to listen to some techno again.

Posted by: Brian at August 16, 2004 06:17 PM

this is great, thanks for the mix!

Posted by: strikingdstance at August 16, 2004 07:14 PM

Sparsely populated club night? Forward-thinking music? In San Francisco?! Simply unheard of. ;)

Posted by: Eli Bingham at August 16, 2004 11:20 PM

Eli, I know, what am I thinking?

Posted by: Philip Sherburne at August 17, 2004 11:43 PM

Schaffel is STONGER?... miss the 'r' on the file name. Great stuff Phil, love it. Greetings from Mexico.

I knew some one was gonna beat me to the T.Rex tech-house mix mash up. God damn it... now I gotta find new glam rock to mix w/ Akufen just to be original =)
I hence forth order that Marc Bolan's voice make it's way over many 4/4s in the coming years.


Posted by: andrew jones at August 21, 2004 02:49 PM

and to add to this, I didn't even know the Schaffel beat is 6/8 instead of 4/4s. ahhh the humanity of it all...


Posted by: andrew jones at August 21, 2004 03:24 PM

solid - i've been getting into this subgenre of house over the past year and really dig it... i have two m.mayer mixes (fabric and immer), and a fairly good clutch of vinyl too - just wanted to say thanks!

Posted by: robot blair at August 23, 2004 11:04 AM

Sounds like the Dr. Who-theme on techno, no? :-)


Posted by: Jurgen at August 23, 2004 12:28 PM

Dein Mix ist supergeil!!

Posted by: lynnel at August 25, 2004 01:21 PM

Very good mix, pity about some of the odd set programming choices (i felt that some of the tunes selected didn't really follow on from each other very coherently/smoothly, but maybe that was the effect that M. Sherburne was going for?). Anyway, pedantic quibbling aside this is a big mix with some great tunes and quite a lot of eclectic variety.
