It´s time to share some music with you. Every now and then, we will post mixes that have been influential for us, and that we still cherish.
Let´s begin with a mix from 1996. Some weeks ago, i found a 7″ sized frisbee by The Designers Republic on ebay. It was a promotional item for BLECH II: BLECHSDÖTTIR mix CD on warp records. Warp had asked their mates PC and Strictly Kev of DJ Food (Ninja Tune) to make some best of mix of the Warp catalogue, and boy, they did!
It is a rollercoaster ride de luxe with everyone on board from the early to mid 90s Warp crew: Aphex Twin, Disjecta, LFO, Mike Ink, Plaid, Elecktroids, Freeform, Nightmares on Wax, Jimi Tenor, DJ Mink, Red Snapper,…from easy to uneasy listening. It is quite a challenge for the unexperienced listener. But then again, WARP was pushing the limits then!
Time is flying, this compilation will be 20 years old in September 2016!!! I feel like a kid again, listening to this….and it still is one of my favourite mixes:
Thanks for everything, Warp Records!
