For this month’s archive dig, I present to you ‘Easy’. I was still a simple yogi living up in the mountains, getting my inspiration from the starry skies and desert landscape. And if you listen carefully, you can hear the hints of the soon-to-come ‘Painting’ which was made just a few months later. These two mixes were definitely siblings, meandering through the halls of some smooth jazzy house. This is still one of my favorites to this day. So please enjoy this journey from the nostalgic 90s!

Back in 1993, before the Detroit Electronic Music Festival and Movement there was World Party; a mega-event at the Joe Lewis arena in downtown Detroit in which the AAC collective were most lucky to participate.  It featured possibly the most legendary Detroit line-up one could ever hope for: Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May, Carl Craig, Richie Hawtin, Inner City live, D Wynn…  Unfortunately it was not well organized, well equipped or well attended.  But whatever energy World Party lacked, the after-party certainly made up for it (D Wynn definitely stole the show).  This entire experience, beginning to end, was resuscitated and resurrected, becoming this very mix I present before you.

For your listening pleasure, as side 1 begins with the haunting blips and bleeps of Model 500, just imagine standing in the cavernous lobby at the ‘ambient stage’ (two tables in front of some vinyl covered booths next to the soda and popcorn vendors) with Richie Hawtin on one side, Mike Huckaby on the other, and you will be instantly transported to the original Detroit Electronic Music Festival.  Enjoy!

Here we have Star from 1995, the third mix tape from a series of four (the other three being Eve ryd ayl if e, The Golden Age, and A La Peanut Budder Sandwiches).  A lot of mixes were either on 60 or 90 minute cassettes before this era, but some of us decided to super-size it and give the boys n girls 100.  And in those extra minutes I’ve squeezed in some favorites (I just noticed that both sides end with Carl Craig and Masters at Work productions!).  So enjoy the extra 10 minutes of star dusted (and remastered) musics.

Here we go boys and girls. We begin our journey once again, venturing into the sounds that fueled the land of rave out here in the Midwest back in the early 90s. As I write this I am recalling the countless hours of driving to get to the remotest warehouses, barns, farms and fields, being ever so thankful for the mix tape. It has provided the soundtrack for so many of us along our road trips in life.  This mix presents US and continental European electronica, but its focus is firmly on the new sound of the time – UK “progressive house” (there, I said it).  I sometimes can’t help but cringe when I hear mixes from this era, but alas they do bring back some unforgettable memories.  So may this give you a chuckle or two as you imagine where you were, who you were with, and most importantly what you were wearing back in 1993.  Go there…and enjoy!

Exuding a sunny disco-inspired temperament, this is a Summertime favorite of mine. It captures the sumptuous mid-90s creations of the likes of Moodyman, Carl Craig, Masters At Work, Theo Parrish, and Rob Mello. Many speculated that the title inferred my retirement as a DJ. Maybe it was simply a cheeky Simpsons reference… Whichever the case, it’s here remastered for everyone to revisit and enjoy.

Here is a mix from 1996 made in honor of our Material party at Shelter.  The original line-up consisted of residents Josh Werner, Scott Song and myself, with promoters Erick Urenn and Colette. I left Chicago in 1995, but the night continued on having a healthy lifespan with many other resident DJs, migrating to various other clubs, remaining a mainstay in Chicago for many years. This mix is an homage to those good times at Shelter which we will always think of fondly… Enjoy!
