luv344 Lost Moments In Time

Lost Moments In Time

a mixtape from back when we were the new young American primitives. warped junior boys having out-of-body experiences listening to celestial symphonies washed over by an analogue bubblebath. elements of tone attached to states of mind coming straight from the underworld. a d.i.y. rhythm invention ad infinitum. this was the future sound.

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.

Fump Truck

Fump Truck is a clever anagram for the two words i said most in 2017. in a similar spirit this mix is full of techno dread, moody ambiance and jukin’ bass that was released in 2017; reflecting the year that was. hold on tight, its 2018.

luv333 If 7 Was 9

If 7 Was 9

i started heavily getting into electronic music in the early nineties. at that time rave culture was still fairly new but there were a number of artists that were considered pioneers in the scene; those who helped define the sound that we were all maniacally dancing to and hunting down for home listening. now it’s well over 20 years later and many of these musicians are still forging ahead, honing their craft while continuing to influence the sound of today. this, the 7th anniversary mix for dj luv’s records, is a journey consisting of more recent productions by some these legendary artists. i hope you enjoy listening to If 7 Was 9… and all of the other 320 mixtapes up on this site.

Restricted Frequencies

in a city completely run by machines, automatons return to their power stations to recharge after a full work cycle. the mechanized hustle and bustle of exhausted robots on the motorway makes the city hum.

Drop Acid Not Bombs

in 1982 a simple bass synthesizer with built-in sequencer called the Roland TB-303 Bass Line was released to the public. initially marketed to guitarists as bass line accompaniment for solo practice only 10,000 units were manufactured. in the mid to late 80s a new wave of pioneering dance music producers discovered that by stressing and finessing the 303 a new world of groovy sound was opened up to them; resulting in the creation of acid house and the future of dance music. this is acid.
