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!

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!

Here we have yet another installation of the Meltdown series, number 16 to be exact.  This mix features some darker UK breakbeat (hence Rufige Cru), and is the last of my breakbeat mixes.  It’s pretty rough, just flipped on the tape recorder and started playing records (and don’t even ask me about a playlist…).  It was never circulated widely, but I’m inspired to share this because Jimpster played our Love Tempo party here in Tokyo and this mix actually has one of his early moniker Flag tracks (we chuckled about it).  So buckle up, and get ready for a voyage into the darkside.

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!

Here begins Zen.Daze.  Following in the footsteps of the Atmospheric Audio Chair parties, the resident DJs all spent time in the Midwest rave scene in the early 90s.  Here in Japan, we’ll take a modern approach to the day-chillout party and include indie pop, nu disco, classic dub/downtempo, of course 90s electronica, even krautrock and experimental jazz.  But above all, it’ll be a chance to have fun on a Sunday with friends and wind up the weekend.  Join us every last Sunday of the month at Bonobo!

Here’s my one and only adventure into the world of drum & bass.  I’m a fan of breakbeat, and at the time this was a well needed diversion from a long stint of house mixes.  Whenever I listen to this, I’m transported back to good old Deep Grooves in St. Louis where I acquired most of these records.  And I have to give that city props for providing me with some of my most unforgettable rave memories.  So from me to you, enjoy Kiku.  HAPPY NEW YEAR!

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.

We continue the new year with another reunification of the Atmospheric Audio Chair collective, direct from the tundra of wintery Chicago.  Here is presented a generous collection of canorous compositions which spans the gamut from YMO to MBV to M83.  Perfect for studying for exams, babysitting the neighbor’s kids, and a great conversation starter at dinner parties.  Enjoy!
