In honor of the upcoming FAC51 Haçienda party here in Tokyo, I bring to you this mix which has my favorite version of New Order’s 5-8-6 remixed by the one and only Peter Black.  It also features lots of other goodies like the Berlin infused Joshua Iz remix of Volga Select and Mystic Bill’s Japan inspired Visions Of Tokyo.  Not quite “Electro”, not quite NuDisco, this mix is a collection that captures this strangely ambiguous era of electronica.  Enjoy!

After subjecting myself to obsessive amounts of Julian Mendelsohn, Martin Rushent and Jolley & Swain, I felt it important, nay imperative, to compile some personal ‘extended mix’ favorites.  Give it a listen with fresh ears and an open mind, the flame will at once be rekindled for those big booming drums, stuttered vocal samples, and dubby space-echoed synths.  Enjoy!
