Recorded a sick, sick (sick, I tells ya!) 3-deck, 90 minute mix over the witching hour from Sunday to Monday. Still have to decipher the tracklisting (went through a shitload of wax), but considerably more hyped than usual to get this one up for peeps to check out - couple of tracks from Traxx's new LP, some oldschool UR, Cabaret Voltaire, Marshall Jefferson and a whole lotta other tasty bits!
And on that note, why are techno artists so averse to releasing a bangin' LP? Seems like they all want to get noodly and "artistic" with downtempo diversions and pop vocals. Trentemoller was able to pull it off but a lot of the rest of what I chance upon makes me ask "why can't this be more like their singles?"
Actually I've learned to become leary of album purchases. Its a shame cause you'll read artists on RA or wherever talking about how their album is the chance to really get their whole "vision" out there, something that can't be encapsulated in an EP.
But its the rare full-length I really come back to all that often and I'm not just talking about "pop" diversions or ones where they try a "concept" but even more traditional albums.
Not to say I dont have a bunch of great full lengths just that I've been disappointed often enough (Sweet N Candy comes to mind)
Very much looking forward to a wee shindig on Sat'day night, celebrating Mrs. Wax's b-day. 5 DJs lined up, all with their own unique flava, we've added a fog machine and a 1960s-style oil lamp projector to the Casa WW setup, and there's plans to record audio AND vid of the whole evening!
Fnuk yeah! Great way to wrap up the week, won a white label 2 x 12" copy of Subject Detroit #34 (Music remixes) after entering DJ Bone's "What is music" contest! Some solid reworkings on this one from the likes of Aaron Carl, Rennie Foster and Stephen Brown. Plus I get a personalised, one-of-a-kind mix from Bone himself!
