re-up and update

Too busy having fun in Montreal to update much. This city is great. Linked up with Khiasma, The Ghis, as well as many peeps from new york who were up for mutek

the panel went really well. Interesting conversations, lots of really down-to-earth discussion about the practical issues raised by creative peoples dong awesome things in the context of unclear and inconsistent law (plus labels acting legally to obstruct creativity and collaboration). Kode9 was especially insightful, as well as hilarious.

but I should post the relaunch of the mix I originally did for Modyfier. Inkcore came through with some amazing cover art, so, I present to you the mix, after the manifesto (click on image for download, kindly hosted by MASHIT)

Comrades, fellow travelers and committed members of the party, I present to you:

The aftereffects of a sustained indoctrination of my breakcore roots with four-on-the-floor and 125-140 beats. Infiltrators of my brokenbeat, amen-pure mental state included: Donna Summer, Com.a, Passions, DJ Family, David Last, Curses!, Starkey, Bird Peterson, Dj Deeon, Switch and the 2step/UK Garage pirate radio broadcasts that reached me in a weakened state as I returned from squat parties in 1999.

Yes, I confess to you all, I was sucked kicking and screaming back into house music. The inevitability of history (guilty late nights in 1994 at the Paradise gay bar basement in Boston, hopping to Cajmere), and my continuing admiration and uncontrolled body manipulation by the aforementioned characters sent me in that direction: falling backwards from the po-faced dubstep and the skrewface/drooling breakcore, wiggling up from the 2step sounds.. here it is in all its glory. A party manifesto.

It wasn't easy. The melodic charms so much more prevalent in this style, the square beats that encourage smooth tweaking rather than the rough cutting I favor, all of these were obstacles. My tone-arms weakened by 12 years of hard use in the interest of the Party, occasionally sent Serato wonky and resistant. But I soldiered on! The last hurdle: my preference for swung time/triplets mixed with backbeat 2step - a shuddery-juddery boogie that can't be made too clean. Hopefully you all will agree.

Onward the party!
