I recently picked up the Sbles3plex album, Máquinas Deseantes; it's incredibly good. A nice range of tracks, very clean sounding. A well-mastered release in general - by which I mean it hasn't been compressed to hell. And it works as an album! The kind you listen to from beginning to end! I rarely enjoy listening to full-album-length Electro or Techno releases that way.

Both Drop by Subway and Collaboration Alpha by Suburban Knight are tracks that I've been playing for years. Usually in the same set. Drop was an odd used bin find, an electro-ish track from what I assume are House producers. Suburban Knight is, well, he's awesome. My Sol Dark Direction is indispensable.

The end of this mix is maybe a bit lazy, letting a couple of long tracks play from beginning to end (more or less), but they deserve to be heard in full. Sensory Process by E.R.P. is a monster. High drama. Megaphysics would call it "moody". Same with Birth Of New Life by Drexciya, slotted in here to bring things down a bit. The mix doesn't really work, but that's OK.

I did not realize it was Friday the 13th until half an hour before this was recorded. Some of the later selections (particularly Dobbeltgænger) may have been influenced by that discovery...
