Praktik Swayze - The Wayz of the Swayz [LOCALSOURCE 001]

Inspired by the inaugural Local Source event in Toronto's West End February 2019 and the sounds I dropped as Praktik Swayze there, here is the first edition of the Local Source Mix Series. A special curation of techno and house and echoes of acid awaits listeners in this first installment: The Wayz of the Swayz, a mix showcasing the Praktik Swayze vibe with some tasty morsels from Martin Landsky, Stephan Bodzin, Maceo Plex, Bicep and other top producers across 24 selections. Enjoy choice recent releases backed by the depth of tracks culled from over 15 years of collecting vinyl. High volume listening is recommended.

We'll follow up with select mixes from other Local Source members in the months to come!

Facts about this mix:
- the first Local Source Mix Release and the heart of it mirrors my midnight set there
- 96% vinyl content
- mixed manually at all times and within the radius of the City of Toronto
- recorded from a Xone 32
- planned, tested and crafted in just under 3 months

Thanks to Supply/Demand, Throwing Shapes and Sextone for the support and for creating Local Source together! Thanks to Dysign for the wicked cover art - and DJs that inspired me here include Alex Tolstey, Mike Gibbs, Eliot Lazor and buddies like D-züs and Sextone - you all gave me the pieces I put together here!

Bodzin is such a huge influence on me and Im just happy i can include recent tracks from this great producer right - he still keeps his compositions fresh and hasn't really gone stale. I'd say Romboy has suffered for that far more than him! I dont think Romboy will ever top Gemini but Bodzin has more compositions to take us away in the future for sure.

The ender, Birth - is such a powerful track too... (one of the ones people maybe dont remember as much from Powers of 10 - his 2015 release - but for me its probably as deep/as powerful as the beatless title track off the bodzin album!)

I'm a bit in the way through, and I see how the social aspect is taking hold. Outside, everyone's chillin. Great set m8.
