Oh, this interfaced life. Been x'ing and y'ing all over the place lately, structuring my domecile along degree zero. So things are good. And good things need a good theme.
Girl, let me tell you what. I've found it in the cow races and this one'll run you over like a sedated stampede. Excepter, put down your pencils. Leave the space chipmunk vox and gliding arps to the pros, ok? JK!!! Prof Stinson wants you all to get up and open up, wide open, and drop that ass down to the core. "Some pied piper shit up in this piece!" You got that one right, M.
Due to my recent 'puter strife, been listening to more mixes than usual on this great web and have found more than a few that'll back you up. Take this Kate Simko set from the WMC a few weeks back. Seeing that we're broadcasting live from a post-Drexciya oceanscape 2day, Ms. Simko, never minding her caucasian persuasion, is bumping quite a soulful micro-electro melodotronica (hehehe) that is as hypnotizing as it is liquefying. Admittedly, I saw her open for The Field--who is godawful live, btw--last summer and she spun a deep house set that was slightly less boring, but just as souless as the headliner. Howevs, with her recent release on Spectral, the fantastic "She Said," lady Kate is someone I'm going to be paying a lot more attention to.
Another week, another quality BIS mix. This time featuring the swiss miss Lexx, who first turned my head with a killer Black Sabath edit featured on ARAWA last year. As my connection is failing to bring up the URL, all I can see is take your digital butts over to Beats In Space and listen to Lexx's humdinger of a mix, which is some seriously sun-kissed Motown bump.
And finally, we come to a DJ I've grown quite smitten with as of late, Eli Verveine, a Swiss DJ who obviously has been at it for longer than she's had a MySpace page. I first caught the fire from a mnmlssg post highlighting her stupendous carebear mix, which is an ideal cross-section removed from the berlin-detroit dubosphere. Flash forward a few, and we've come to a stage we're her mixes have become my daily fourth meal. So if you're surfer along the Omar-S/Rhythm&Sound continuum, treat yourself to some Eli Verveine.
