New mix alert! This is something of a work-in-progress, so feedback (of the positive, negative, and even noncomittal kinds) is welcome. I don't have a whole hell of a lot to say about it, because when I was practicing this evening, a speaker jumped off the shelf and clocked me in the head in mid-set (note to self: turn bass down), and as a result I'm feeling a little fuzzy. (What is it with me and head injuries while DJing? I think rechristening myself "DJ Klutz" is in the near future.) So I've got a fifty-cent-piece-sized lump on the noggin and I'm afraid to go to sleep, but this mix is loud enough it ought to stave off yawns for its hour duration. Download and enjoy. Note: ain't a damn thing micro about this one.

Creepshow (Short Version)
P. Lauer, "Starkweather Swing" (Punkt)
Caro, "Super Contact Danse" (Orac)
Granny'Ark, "Granny's Square Dance (E.J. Pasadena mix)" (Zora Lanson)
Matsai, "He Boombah (Tiefschwarz remix)" (Missive)
I:Cube, "Vacuum Jackers (Maurice Fulton remix)" (Versatile)
Christian Kreuz, "Wir Sind Bereit (Munk remix)" (Disko B)
Tim Paris feat Mike Ladd, "Architexture" (Virgo)
U&I, "Rockin' Fly Incantation" (Freak n' Chic)
Offset, "Electro-Menager" (Missive)
Misc., "Rocket Kontrol" (Sender)
Misc., "Flow Control (Basteroid rmx)" (Sender)
Black Strobe, "Pins & Needles" (Output/Puma)
Ferenc, "France" (Kompakt)
Mathew Jonson, "Decompression" (Minus)
Thomas Andersson, "Numb" (Bpitch Control)
Le Dust Sucker, "Mean Boy" (Plong!)

On a totally tangential note, I played a 45-minute set of schaffel at Amoeba Records tonight (lump on head throbbing in sync: duh-daduh-daduh-daduh), and at least eight people came up during the set to ask what I was playing and where they could find a record or CD of it. At least - honestly, I lost count. (Sadly, Amoeba doesn't actually stock much of what I was spinning. I sent one woman off to search for the Schaffel Fieber comp and she came back holding a Shamen CD in one hand and some trance comp in the other. "Are either of these it?" Um... no.) Commercial snafus aside, it was wildly refreshing to see such a good response from my captive audience. Techno may be dead, but the schaffel virus seems to spark a minor fieber wherever it travels.

it doesn't work for me--all I get is an HTML site.

for anyone having trouble downloading - do the rightclick thingy or its mac equivalent, and save the file as an .mp3, and you should be in bidness. let me know if there are still prollems.
