here it is, this is what i have been totally, completely and fully buzzed on. and if you have not heard any of the music i have composed and produced yet, there are two original AFK tracks on this mix CD. this mix was a tonne of fun to make and features several “impossible mixes”.. which sound *quite* cool. have a listen and i am sure you will agree..
Fitalic – Realistic
Matthew Dekay – If I Could Fly (Madoka’s Flying Standby remix)
James Holden – Solstice
Pat Foosheen – The Unthinkable (Habersham’s Mah-sive remix)
Steve May – Open Day (Luke Chable’s Quakes and Craters remix)
Planisphere – Cubed
AFK – Dreamcache
DJ Gordon – Moonshine Boogie
AFK – Magnetic
Art of Noise via Brothers in Rhythm – Dreaming (Color Red)
unlike some of my other mixes, this one took forever to put together. like, a year. don’t ask me why, i don’t know. one thing that didn’t take long was the CD cover (unless you count the year i spent taking photographs for it). the cover picture was taken in january of 2003 in nanaimo during a full moon.
the songs on this cd are all amazing, start to finish. this is a cd with some real aurally shimmering moments, and after listening i am certain you will understand. recommended use: driving up along the pacific ocean on a clear full moon night.
Chris Fraser – Posession (Traveller vs. Quest remix)
Vance Musgrove – Squelch
Voyager – Derangement of the Senses
Hybrid – Visible Noise
Hi-Fi Bugs – Lydian and the Dinosaur
James Newton – Blackbird (Thomas Penton remix)
Paul Van Dyk – Vega (Starecase remix)
Blue Amazon – And Then The Rain Falls (Ocean Wave dub)
The Featured Artist mix was made for Proton Radio. Every week they feature a different DJ/producer and showcase a mix of that persons in prime time. This is what I submitted. It clocks in at two hours and fifty minutes.
Elliptical Orbit was made in about a day. Probably my favorite mix in terms of cohesiveness to-date, this mix also contains two of my own remixes: the AFK mix of LSG’s classic ‘Netherworld’, and the AFK Helladub of Underworld’s ‘Pearl’s Girl’. The ambient track at the end should melt your brain.
D-Note – Shed My Skin (PMT remix)
Violet vs. Mantronik – Burn The Elastic
Andy Page & Lee Burridge – Maladjusted
LSG – Netherworld (AFK broken in torment mix)
Luigi – Creation (Blackwatch Eastend Dub)
Lamb – Goreki (Hamel remix)
Starecase – Undecided
Arrakis – Airaforce (Lemon8 remix)
Underworld – Pearl’s Girl (AFK helladub)
Sarah McLachlan – Fear (Hybrid’s Supercollider remix)
After 3 years of compiling, I finished this in 2002 shortly before putting together Elliptical Orbit. It’s chalk full of favorite songs of mine and ranges from ethereal breakbeat to pounding flighty progressive house and trance. Very good for road trips.
Opus III – A Fine Day (Future Renegades mix)
Electron Ryder – Follow Me (Starecase remix)
Cantella & The Monk – Enter The Monk (Hybrid’s Elektrotek remix)
Stef, Pako & Frederik – Magic Shop (Voyager remix)
Hybrid – Theme From Wide Angle (Rolling Thunder Dub)
