The first two tracks in this mix - New Life by Myoptik and Signals by Apologist - are both from the UK label Frequency Domain. Both are from terrific albums, the former a varied ambient split between Matt Whitehead and Myoptik, the latter a new dubby electronic eight-tracker from Apologist. I highly recommend both.

ΠΕΡΑ ΣΤΑ ΟΡΗ's odd track BOUNCING/LASSITUDE is from their recent IMMI EP on Musar. A cryptic, menacing, weird EP; I like it a lot. And it sets up a slightly awkward but cool transition into T.Power's Complexification.

Track 10 Just Hold On by dbacon (AKA Being AKA The Wee DJs) is also new. It's from Half-arsed Cupboard Jams, a collection of sweet lo-fi-ish electro and techno sketches from Mr. Bacon's studio. If Just Hold On (and Aches) is what comes out of your cupboard then I love it too.

I got a little bit carried away at the end of this one and ran long; I really wanted to hear Complexification (and Bola's Serge2). I hope nobody minds. Anyway I'll be back next week with another upload on Thursday, my customary end-of-month slow set.
