Gouge That Groove

techno so heavy that when you lay the stylus on the record it chisels out a sound so deep that eventually the grooves end up as long curled up ribbons of vinyl on the dancefloor. now gouge that groove!

20 Minutes Into The Future

here’s a conceptual mix about the “sound of the 1980s” that has been brewing since the SYNTAX ERA began. it’s that brand new synth sound palette that emerge in the late 70s and dominated the soundscape of the following decade. preset orchestral hits, gated drums, vocoded voices, the cleanest distorted guitar sounds you’ve ever heard, analog crashing into digital; a sound so unmistakably eighties. this is an immersive event so prepare yourself; you may come out the other end with A Flock Of Seagulls haircut wearing shoulder pads craving “new” Coke and scrounging in your pockets for quarters so you can hit the arcade. cue dramatic intro.

…because disco

in the 1970s i was but a child and, even though disco was around, i was a bit too young to hit the clubs. i really began appreciating disco music when i started falling for house music. my curiosity made track down the samples and opened my ears to the disco sound. so here’s a good end of summer late seventies disco mix for those who like to party and can’t stop dancin’.

after finishing this, the 300th mixtape on dj luv’s records, i wanted to collect my thoughts and go for a walk in the countryside. take time to slowly ramble down the road communing with the land, contemplating the big blue sky, and the future. the auditory expedition contained within was created to enhance such wanderings. let’s go for a walk.

luv312 Jukeboxing

Jukeboxing

about six years ago i starting buying a new sound that was coming out of Chicago. it was raw with skittery beats, big drums, casio tones and mangled samples. seems a new generation had adopted a style of competitive dancing known as footwork and this new sound, sometimes called juke, is what drove the dancers wild. this is my first foray into this new, underground,  messed up and exciting evolution in electronic music; but it won’t be my last.
