Don’t Mind Me

oh, hi there. don’t mind me. i am just putting some beautiful music up on the interwebs. much like i have been doin’ for about… oh well would you look at that. seems that this here mixtape marks the 10th year that dj luv’s records have been going around. that’s a mighty long time. but i’m here to tell ya that i don’t mind. no sir, not one bit. why i would be making these darn mixtapes anyway so i figure why not share ‘em. so don’t you worry, you can keep expectin’ ’em, cos as far near as i can tell we have only scratched the surface of what the Record Canyon has tucked away. thanks to those who have listened and shared. spread the luv, that’s what i always say.

luv370 Unnatural Mystic

Unnatural Mystic

for a brief moment the fabric of time and space folded in on itself creating an inter-dimensional vortex. it was at that instance the Unnatural Mystic appeared above us, hovering motionless in the sky. as it set it’s gaze upon us we slowly drifted upwards, lifted on layers of rhythms and sounds from the future past. entranced by the journey. lost in space.

luv365 A Burnt God Reboot

A Burnt God Reboot

five years ago i put up a mixtape called Robot Ground Beat comprised of techno music that was so heavily influenced by jazz that, at points, it veered right into it. while putting that mix together i came across an odd strain of downtempo electronic “jazz” deep cuts. here is a mix of the sounds found that day. a weird and wonderful “b side” companion to Robot Ground Beat where techno producers slow down and put some jazz on it.

beat upon beat in a never ending loop that exposes all sides. Möbius Strips is an old skool mix i made 13 years ago for a radio show called Plaisirs Synthétiques, which aired on radio station CISM, in Montreal, one Saturday night a month from 2003 to 2009. the show’s hosts Bertrand, Marc-André & Jean seemed to appreciate my audio oddities. merci frères, de m’avoir aidé à démarrer ces voyages de mix réguliers.

luv342 Inside The Alien Machine

Inside The Alien Machine

for almost 15 years now i have been designing nanobots that can record audio and video in very small places. a few months ago the Canadian government contracted me to bring my nanobot technology to a remote place in the Yukon where an alien ship had been discovered. when i arrived they took me to what they suspected was the engine of the craft. it was an odd shaped box, the size of a small suitcase, that was encased in a smooth, hard plastic. there were no lights, displays or buttons and it made no sound. the only way we knew it was was functioning is that it had an almost imperceptible vibration to the touch. it’s only discernible feature was a small port. i was instructed to send one of my nanobots into this port and to record audio and visual of the insides so they could better understand the technology. my little machine traveled for almost 38 minutes into the depths of this alien machine before it was destroyed and the transmission was lost. unfortunately something inside the machine messed with my nanobot’s video capabilities and only a few stills were recorded. luckily the entire audio was recorded and this is what i present to you here today. i was forbidden to share this information but i thought the world needed to hear it.
photo : random still taken from inside the machine at the 31 min. 27 sec. point of the nanobot’s journey.
