    Detroit - the myth

    One trap is focusing on the technicalities of mixing so much the music becomes almost incidental - I often think that all djing falls within 2 axis - shit music to brilliant music and shit mixing to brilliant mixing... Stating the obvious there but imo the quality of the music usually trumps how...

    Detroit - the myth

    By nye 99 it was very interesting to hear what techno djs played from the decade. I was at a David Holmes - Andrew Weatherall ' techno sets' night and it was dominated by stuff up until about '96... Stuff like Lyot remix. It was actually difficult to spot anything from later in the decade. I...

    Detroit - the myth

    Blueprint Surface Meta all kept things interesting in that late 90s period as Beyer and those guys slowly seemed to lose the plot and Drum Code became more and more identikit and then weirdly more and more popular.

    Yes Concealed Project is a fave of mine, There are loads of 12 inches with just one good tune on labels like Code Red.

    Detroit - the myth

    Great links in this thread, ta. There were so many gems in those vinyl exchanges in London, especially in the bins and e.g. that basement in the Soho one.

    shitting on their own legend

    Orbital - I lived the Myth of their Brown Album set by listening to it endlessly on tape. When I finally got to see them on the Snivilization tour it still felt real, they still seemed to be channelling rather than revisiting themselves and that still felt accurate up to In Sides but the bottom...

    shitting on their own legend

    Cool i can only imagine. It's crazy how great he is behind the decks ...always a journey and never saw him play even sub-par. A good friend warmed (s) up for him when he plays Belfast - always said he was a total gent. Obviously these are still allegations, re his music - only Drexciya imo can...
