    After all the good words I heard about it in the "Top albums of the year" thread, I finally picked it up.

    WOW. Firstly it's a brilliant concept. Secondly it's PERFECT for studying/reading to.

    I applaud.

    Bad choice of thread title ... everyone is probably going to come in here thinking that you've almost convinced alex to reinstate the edit button. [​IMG]

    It is a good mix, I agree.

    Very chillin techno.

    I thought richie's dex efx + 909 was his prime, but de:9 is even better in a different way.

    Mixmag Live was Hawtins prime.

    I honestly thought that's what it was [​IMG] I thought he had the inside scoop on the holy grail of buttons.

    It's not really a mix. More of a 50+ minute track.

    I have a feeling he did the whole thing in ACID, just layering different different loops on top of each other. No actual turntable DJing was involved.

    Still, one of my favorite CD's from last year.

    I disagree. I've heard it a few times, and read the liner notes (mebbe you should do this!)

    From what I can gather he took all his loops and remixed them into tracks. He then mixed those tracks (as one would records) using final scratch + effects and then cleaned up the completed mix a once he was finished with it.

    Try listening to the album on hits with a nice pair of headphones....
