Stereolab Test Record

here is a 20 track / 20 year compendium of Stereolab, easily one of the better bands to emerge from the nineties. they created delightful, smart, decadent, minimal, noisy, experimental pop music with the use of analog synths, organs, guitars, drums, layered vocals, naive melodies, rock minimalism, amazing production, tight playing, a hell of a lot of talent and a healthy amount of non-lexical vocables. take the test, you will be surprised how well you do.

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.

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.

Triptychlish part 3

this is the final piece of the Triptychlish which sketches out my formative musical appreciation from year zero to year thirty. part 3 is a soundtrack to my nineties experience and the turn of the millennium (1993-2002), reflecting major events like meeting the one i love, raving, the creation of luv, music biz training and the first of my Ninja years. each track chosen throughout this triptych has a story behind it, a reminder of people, places and parties that have shaped my first 30 trips around our sun.
