Electro, house, techno; relatively warm music this week. 120 rising a bit to 125. Mostly old tunes, though there's a new-ish short piece in here by dbacon (Dave Paton) and a new-ish nice ambient track by Neotex (Neocortex?) on Trnch Music.

The two new (2020 and later) tracks in this hour are #1 Static Animation by Neotex (Neocortex?) from the Landown Vol. 1 comp on Trnch Music and #2 Chordex2 by dbacon from Half-arsed Cupboard Jams 2. Warm ambient and chunky beats, respectively. I had thought that Mat Carter's Emotive Motion was new as well (and said as much in my intro) but I was mistaken, that's a piece from 2002. It was however remastered and reissued in 2019 along with the rest of the Zark Time EP.
Track #11 Heliopause by Herr Wächer (AKA The Sentinel) really stood out to me while mixing. It reminds me of the space-y techno Jeff Mills makes, or maybe Model 500's album Deep Space; lush and beautiful. I cut Heliopause short to work in the next track, so I say you should give the original unmixed track and the whole Heliopause EP a listen.
Mixing Underworld's Rez in after Stream Of Consciousness was kind of a stretch but I think it works OK. Pulled it (Rez) off the shelf because I hadn't heard it in ages. The copy played here is the US release, TVT 8718, though it's a later repress I believe, one of the ones in a blue-metallic colored sleeve.
And that's it. This is a pretty disjointed selection; I may have been waking up while recording. I'll be back next week Thursday evening with another end-of-the-month slow mix. Thanks for listening, and be sure to check out the artists and releases linked above.
