I started working on this mix back in March but abandoned it after many unsatisfactory attempts. Then during a recent practice session I opened the incomplete playlist and a 60 minute journey came together exactly as I’d envisioned.
After a couple of uptempo mixes at the beginning of the year I wanted to make a slower, sultry workout. It’s dark and melodic, atmospheric and thumping; late night material built around some of my favorite tracks of late-2008 / early-2009, namely Carl Craig’s masterful remix of Martin Buttrich’s “Stoned Autopilot,” a record which perfectly embodies the vibe I’ve most enjoyed playing over 15 years of djing. The overall envelope of intensity for the mix is smooth, restrained, building subtly from deep to pumping and then coming down easy to a groovy landing. I’m proud of the result; I hope you enjoy it.
Dedicated to Addy, for whom I’m grateful and whose support and encouragement is in part responsible for this mix coming to fruition.
Mixed on two Technics 1200 MKII using Serato Scratch Live running on a Powerbook G4 and recorded through a Rane MP/XP 2016 into Peak Pro 5 running on a Mac Pro.
