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.

luv326 - Restricted Frequencies

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.

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.
