Great mix, very much in the same vain as mememormee in he link above but with a different flair. I am totally digging this vinyl slow mo action, and props to the djs supporting because it takes a lot of mixing skilz and brings old records back to life.

amazing podcast

still waiting for the tracklist

Thanks for the great ride :) Brilliant mix!

Looking for track 13, found the album, but can’t seem to figure out the right track. Any help? The 04:30 one?

Hi Dennis. If it’s drum machines, then it’s Track 2 on the SND album Atavism. If it’s strings, then it’s Ekkehard Ehlers’s “Plays John Cassavetes #2.”

Thanks for enjoying the mix.


Dennis  on July 6, 2011 at 2:56 AM

Thanks a lot Momo! Going to enjoy this!

This is the most enjoyable “techno” mix I’ve heard this year. It has been making some recent train travels very pleasant. I need to go dig up some Harold Budd vinyl. Thanks for putting it together!

++++ Incredible!

I stumbled upon this today while checking out Per’s podcast and I thought your name looked familiar…you totally lived down the hall from me in 3rd North freshman year. Haha. Small world. Fantastic mix!
