Some incoherent ramblings about these selections:
There's this thrift store in Stockholm that I try to frequent quite often. Most times I find absolutely zero. Other times I found crucial acid
and balearic house compilations or sought-after ambient. Once, I was lucky enough to find this Woob album called Woob2 4495 as well as two other
EM:T compilations at the very bottom of a shelf filled with the usual thrift-store junk. I need to own more EM:T releases, but they're quite pricey.
This ambient piece from Encephaloid Disturbance was taken from the EP called Fragments. I usually know this project for their harsh acid outputs
and will continue playing tracks from them later on. I don't own many EPs or 12"s, but their tracks usually appear on Dance Opera compilations which are
pretty cheap and available.
Orange Planet is taken from the 1994 album called Kokotsu released on Apollo.
The Grid brings pretty awful memories of some sort of banjo-house playing on MTV and VIVA as I was a kid. Luckily, they got a Global Communication
treatment for one of their tracks that was not Swamp Thing. This was taken from the Global Communication Remotion Remix album that got released on Dedicated
in 1995, but it was available on the CDM released in 1994 on Deconstruction.
I actually came across The Optic Crux and their self-titled album when I was subscribed to Spotify. This Djax-Up-Beats album had somehow slipped past my digging
senses, so I immediately unsubscribed from Spotify and used the money to buy the album on Discogs instead.
Essential swedish producer Krister Linder has a number of aliases, most which are buy-on-sight. Tupilaq is definitely one of these projects. This track was taken
from the 2xLP called Alaskanlab Sweden 1995 released on Audio Pollution in 1995. I've managed to buy both the vinyl and cd versions quite cheap somehow. Krister Linder
is also responsible for projects such as Yeti and Solaroid which I will be playing tracks from later on.
Besides owning The Tides Remix Album, all I have from Being is from the compilation called Fresh Emissions released on Emissions Audio Output in 1995. As I'm typing this
I notice Being has released a number of sought-after twelve inches as well as a collaboration with Two Lone Swordsmen. Wantlisted!
Octarine was released on vinyl on the label called Internal in 1995, but my version was taken from the Trance Europe Express series. This series is actually really good
and despite the name, it doesn't contain very much trance. If you're buying a copy, make sure you're getting the booklet which contains lots of interesting anecdotes.
In the summer of 2018 I visited a small record fair on Södermalm in Stockholm where I found some Dopplereffekt, Theo Parrish, Redshape and other essential records. My greatest
find was Carl Finlow's Voice Stealer 2xLP called The All Electric House released on Subvert in 1997. Although I own the vinyl, the version I played on this mix was taken from
a compilation cd called Smokedown 2: Further Travels Into The Leftfield. I've been playing quite a lot of newer Carl Finlow releases in my sets with newer music, and one of the
highlights from this summer was seeing him play live in the cellar at Griessmuehle in Berlin.
The first time I saw a Andre Holland release was at a record fair in Stockholm in 2007 or 2008. I had recently moved to the city and wanted to start digging as soon as I could
so the record fair was a good place to start. One seller was selling a personal DJ collection with thousands of proper electro, techno and house records. I saw someone dig up
Andre Holland's release on Somewhere In Detroit and pay roughly 2 EUR for it. I was gutted. There's more to this story, but this is it for now. This particular track was taken
from the essential compilation called Origins Of A Sound released on Submerge in 1995.
When the major record stores in Stockholm went under, I spent every night after work in the crates of Megastore in search for bargains. If I remember correctly I picked up
more than 10 copies of Lords Of Svek 2 (or was it 3? The blue one!) as well as bags filled with CDs missing case and artwork. Insync Vs Mysteron - Android Architect was one of
these CDs. It got chucked into a drawer of generic cds without cases and almost ended up getting sold. Luckily, I saved the CD and later on managed to buy a few twelve inches
fairly cheap. This track was taken from the Japanese label called Sublime Records in 1997. The label released a compilation series with releases previously done by Peacefrog.
Steve Rachmad has made so many essential releases that it's hard to know where to start. Sterac? Paralell 9? Black Scorpion? Why not all of them? I came across Secret Life Of Machines
for a reasonable price, but Thera is still in my wantlist. This track was taken from a compilation called Get Lost which was released on Multiplex in 1997. Multiplex is on my
list of labels I really need to pay more attention to. In the mid-90s they released twelve inches by Statis, Cai Bojsen-Moller, Morgan Geist, Dan Curtin and John Tejada to name a few.
Urban Groove (or Urban Groove Alliance) is an alias of Hope Grant, the same person behind the Envoy moniker (yes, Dark Manouvers). This fairly small project got two twelve inch
releases on Plink Plonk before being abandoned. This track did not get featured on the vinyl releases, but was taken from the compilation called Parasols 02, also released on Plink Plonk.
I know nothing at all about The Naturists besides owning one of their CDs. This track was taken from the album called The Friendly Islands released on Interactive Records in 1993.
MLO has a number of releases on respected labels such as R&S Records and Rising High. This Claude Young mix of Two Voyages was originally released as twelve inch and cd maxi in 1996, but
my version is taken from the 3xCD compilation called Plastic Apple.
Masked Detroit collective Scan 7 has been releasing music for a long time, creating unrepairable holes in my wallet. This track was taken from their album called Resurfaced which was released
on vinyl and CD on Tresor in 1999. Just a few months ago, I also purchased a polish (I'm guessing bootleg) copy of Resurfaced on tape. I don't even own a cassette player.
Originally released on vinyl in 1995, I picked the Terraforming track from the compilation called The Collective, released on 430 West in 1998. Octave One started out in 1990 and are still
going strong. I can't remember how many times I've seen them, but I've made to sure to see their live act in both Berlin and Stockholm in the recent years.
Uwe Schmidt has so many aliases, so many that i should dedicate a specific shelf to keep track of his releases. I'm glad I own a large number of his Atom Heart releases, as well as some
Lassigue Bendthaus, i, Atomu Shinzu and Urban Primitivism to name a few. Milagro 2 is taken from Milagro EP released on Our Choice and Roughmix in 1994.
Norwegian Mind Over MIDI has been releasing music since 1996. I own the first two albums and they're absolute bliss. I've used a number of his tracks in my previous mixes and will continue to do so.
This particular track was released on Club Craft in 1996, but my version is taken from the CD album.
Burger Ink consists of Wolfgang Voigt and Jörg Burger. This is the track called Avalon from their album called Las Vegas. It's also featured on the twelve inch called Las Vegas Pt. 1 released on
Harvest in 1996.
I'll be posting the next episode next sunday.
