Xanaxdu

Here’s another gem back from the ‘intelligent techno’ days.  I think this was made during a particularly bitter winter so it has a cold, dark overtone to it.   This does however have some all time favorites on it like LFO’s Mentok 1, Carl Craig’s Galaxy and Trak 1’s For This (to which Mr. Farina turned me on).  This was a peak period of full-on Midwest raving and deeeep AAC chill outs.  So if you want to truly get in the mood for this month’s archive dig, just pop a Xanax, lie comfortably in your living room and pop in that VHS copy of Beyond The Mind’s Eye.  Enjoy!

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!

For those of us who didn’t have the privilege to experience the original Warehouse, Music Box, The Loft or Paradise Garage, at least we had MEDUSA’S!  So many years, so many memories…  Whenever I hear certain songs I am immediately transported back to that patchouli and clove cigarette filled three-ring-circus-dressed-in-combat-boots juice bar.  Even with fake ID in pocket, Medusa’s was our acid-industrial-techno-new wave haven of choice.  And it continues to be an inspiration for me to this day.  So for shits n giggles, here’s a humble little present from me to you (granted not all of these are ‘Medusa’s classics’, but you’ll get the picture…).  HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
