Death By Drum Machine, a HoBL mix for Midi Deux

A mix i recorded around a week ago for Midi Deux, containing some of my favourite tracks of the moment i’ve been playing out recently. It was hard limiting both the Mumdance & Logos tracks down to a sensible number.

Body Hammer and World Unknown’s Joe Hart always offers up the most entertaining history lessons you will ever get,  and this is no different. I was lucky enough to catch a secret WU party over a couple of years ago just outside of Brixton. Dancing to Yello whilst drinking from a carton of squash certainly was entertaining, and i really don’t even like Yello.

LOOKER (1981)

Written and directed by Michael Crichton.

There is something special about hi-tech science fiction from the early eighties. I think it is the wow & flutter like haze of the neon blue computer graphics.

The mix is a rare drum & bass outing for me, which seems perverse considering how much the genre has both moved and influenced me over the years. It plots a through narrative of the sounds that have soundtracked a lot of my past. With both early Dope Dragon and Optical, and also artists like Ital Tek and Om Unit, who I believe are opening up different sounds and drawing new influences in to the scene, driving the genre in to tomorrow. Most importantly though, it’s just full of good music.
