Here is my airport moving walkway inspired mix ‘Stand Right, Walk Left’.  The designer must have thought he was overseas where they stand ‘left’ and walk ‘right’.  Ooops.  The songs here are left to play out with the focus being less on overlapping blends and more on the spacial and textural elements of each track.  It’s definitely one of the deeper mixes I have done and is part of the era of mixes (Painting, Material Sound, At 7am Hovering, Peaceably So, Gee Your Beats Sound Terrific) that were created up at the mountain yoga retreat where I had been studying/living at the time.  So if you’re having the kind of day where you’re feeling to let the busyness of life pass you on the left (or right…), these 90 minutes are for you.

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.
