“We’re Lost In Music” – this is the excuse

“We’re lost in music
Caught in a trap
No turnin’ back
We’re lost in music

Have you ever seen
Some people lose everything
First to go is their mind.” (Sister Sledge)

It was late, I’m sorry, pardonnez-moi, forgive me: the link to the mix in my last posting was wrong.
Here’s the correct one:

HELPLESS FOOL FOR MUSIC mix 1″

Here’s some more comments on the tracklist:

TRENTEMÖLLER: Polar Shift
DJ KOZE: Brutalga Square
(these two are so perfect for mixing together – the bell sounds are from the koze track, most of the rest is from trentemöller.. dj kozes ‘kosi comes around’ album is a great mixture of punky grating synth techno with minimal techno’s obsession for rhythm.. “polar shift” isn’t done justice with the way i mixed it in cause its greatness lays in the layers that trentemöller builds up over the whole track.)

RYAN CROSSON: Bow String
(in a similar way as “polar shift” this song works nicely in contrasting tight crisp minimal rhythm sounds and echo synths. ryan crosson is great. i stumbled upon his music when downloading some free netaudio tunes he released and he sure is a proof that not all netaudio stuff is boring chill music.)

NATHAN FAKE: Dinamo (DOMINIK EULBERG RMX)
(more great funky minimalist techno with a hint of melody.)

ROMAN FLÜGEL: Geht’s noch (DOMINIK EULBERG RMX)
(the synth line of that track is annoying like a kazoo yet got stuck in my mind from the first i’ve heard it… a great track and mr. eulberg adds some nice polish to it)

TIMO MAAS feat. BRIAN MOLKO: Pictures
(maas usually really isn’t my taste. i don’t even like any of the other tracks he made with molko but this one is great: cinematic but with a subtle funkiness and dark lyrics… the queer s/m voyeuristic aspect they hint at is a more than pleasant change in the otherwise 99.9 percent heterocentric lyricworld of dance music.. the evil nine remix of this song is an unexpectedly unbreaky take on it, simple but good.)

DIGITALISM: Zdarlight
(a great electro clash rocker with an acid feel, introduced to me through one of the excellent kitsune compilations)

CHICKEN LIPS: White Dwarf (THE JUAN MCLEAN RMX)
(disco! handclaps! weird whispery-vocoded vocals! heaven!)

ISOLÉE: My Hi-Matic
(this might not even be my favourite isolee song but it’s the one that fits best in this mix. “we are monster” is definitely one of the best albums of last year. it’s ‘reserved’ music, careful music, complex music in a sense of: every ever so tiny piece adds to the whole picture.)

PONI HOAX: Budapest (JOAKIM Italo Dub)
(italo disco – a genre i remember best for when i was 16 and on my first abroad holiday in spain, lloret de mar. i also remember dancing to DIVINE on that holiday, at a club in a castle with a dancefloor that was lit from below in the garden, really kitschy and nice. okay, italo disco is something i only like with a hint of irony, but as JOAKIM – who has been one of my favourite electronic musicians since his ‘are you vegetarian’ – remixed this i simply had to listen to it and i’m all happy about that. there’s another awesome remix by him last year you should check out: “magic touch” by clor.)

HUGGOTRON & THE MIGHTY QUARK: Zoo 67
(I might be wrong but I think this is an alias of John Dahlbäck, and the song is a nice electro house tune with dark disco violins.)

I’m off for a long nightly walk to the LOGH show now. First time out after one week. How exciting.
