local collapse

100 Abandoned Houses Kevin Bauman

My, doesn't time fly in the blogosphere! Finally got the chance to have a 'serious ' listen to the ladies. From one feedback junkie to another, here goes.

The transition from ellen into Simko is great- i love that kind of dark reduced techno that you play plus the feel of almost live percussion. I'm surprised by the ellen allien-I've never payed much attention-any other recommendations?And the kate simko track is clinical and classy-I hadn't heard of her. Love the margaret dygas-it positively bristles as soundtraps go off.

The change of sound with agf in the middle feels like a good move to me-dancefloor damage. Only the cassy kind of throws me because I know it so well. You keep it pretty dark and trippy but playful too. And Leila's polite mayhem to close

I'm afraid you're going to have to come up with a more convincing metaphor for this blog though-if this is the sound of indigestion well then I'll have another slice.

And with this next mix there's equal parts stamping to pirouetting. From the archive:

Letter to the Laingoustine

Well, already you’re clear about this blog’s nature. It is like a meringue. Cubby pirouettes at the curvy-wurvy tippy-top, spinning out vinyl with all taste and skill. I squat rather lower down, in the denser crumbly bit, gurgitating semi-digested laptop mixes. This one being an example. It’s for Marg, in answer to her question “Where are all the women producers in techno?” So here are some of their great tunes, bludgeoned by me. If not skill, let’s hope at least there is taste. The only thing that keeps me from the gooey chewy sugary morass below.
