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!

Welcome back to the Meltdown series, this being number 13.  It is presented in honor of our upcoming ZenDaze Halloween party which we decided (under the influence of much tequila) would be a rave.  I have saved everyone the embarrassment (mine) that was Side 1 and am only posting Side 2.  The happy, piano-driven breakbeats was a short-lived moment in the Midwest rave scene, but it sure does bring back some of those more ecstatic memories.  Enjoy!

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!

We all love our techno, especially those hidden gems form the early 90s.  And not just the Detroit and Chicago varietals, but especially those vintage blends from the UK (I believe I made this mix just so I could include LFO’s ‘Syndrome’ on it).  Techno was branded as ‘intelligent’ back then, and who can deny that about Carl Craig, Mr. Fingers or The Black Dog?!  But as they say, they just don’t make music like they used to.  Sad but true.  So here for your enjoyment, a 90 min atypical-techno excursion, so aptly titled after what was my thirty-third ‘meltdown’ series endeavor.

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!

Delving once again into the Meltdown series, this breakbeat gem adventures heavily into the dub and reggae influenced tracks which eventually evolved into ‘jungle’.  This was when you could clearly hear the differentiation from the house/techno inspired breakbeats.  Ah, the memories…back when raves were fun.  Enjoy this little time capsule of UK rydims.

What can I say about this mix.  It’s out there…  One of my personal favorites.  It belongs to the quadrilogy of mixes which include A La Peanut Budder Sandwiches, Star, and The Golden Age.  All in all, this is a very eclectic collection of electronica with hats off to Detroit/Chicago artists and the many whom they inspired.  One side ends with the ambient ramblings of The Black Dog and Air Liquide (a nod to the 70s psychedelic band Brainticket) and the other with the blurred d&b/downtempo echos of Subsurfing and Attica Blues.  You’ll start on planet Earth and end up on a space trip.  So sit back and enjoy the journey!

For those of us who didn’t have the privilege to experience the Warehouse, Music Box, The Loft or Paradise Garage, at least we had MEDUSA’S. To me, that’s what Chicago was all about. Whenever I hear certain songs, I immediately get lost in memories of the sights and smells (mostly patchouli and clove cigarettes) that filled that building. Even with fake ID in pocket, Medusa’s was our haven of choice. And it continues to be an inspiration to this day. So for shits n giggles, here’s a little present celebrating one of the best clubs in Chicago. Granted not all of these are ‘Medusa’s classics’, but you’ll get the picture… HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
