Upon Reentry

sweet daddy luv is back behind the decks with an unapologetically ravey nod to his old skool as a trio of turntables blast breakbeat classics with reckless abandon. luv spins records like no one’s listening so you can dance like no one’s watching.

luv328 Sex and Violence

Sex and Violence

five years ago i was gearing up to make the 100th mix for this website. around the same time a new friend and documentary film maker became curious about my record obsession and mentioned that he would like to film me while i was creating a mix. the combination of a film and the 100th post meant i had to take a unique approach to this mix. which got me to thinking about Monty Python’s Flying Circus and the absurdly clever way in which the episodes evolved. i wanted to make a mix like that; so i mapped out the first Monty Python episode Whither Canada?, noting all the skits, bits and segues. then i choose music, dialogue and sound effects and, while using the episode breakdown as guide, made a new journey. keep in mind this isn’t an attempt to soundtrack the show, it’s more about creating something completely different. to better understand i suggest watching Vincent Guignard‘s The Luv Of Music and then listen to luv136 Whither Canada?

now to the mix at hand. a follow up mix that gets it’s cues from the second Monty Python’s Flying Circus episode intriguingly titled Sex and Violence.

Attack of the Giant Mutant Strawberry Strain

dub is a mutation of reggae and has gone forth and multiplied. these heavy slices of bass, drum & echo are mutations made from the original dub mutant strain by punks, techno geeks, odd pop stars, the illbient crew, metal heads, indie kids, singers & players. partially inspired by the recent re-issue campaign from On-U Sound of some classic Adrian Sherwood productions.

when i started this site in 2010 i also launched a craft (affectionately known as the “satellite of luv”) into outer space to take photographs and record strange and wonderful sounds. we have been monitoring s.o.l.’s journey since, and recently we received a unique bit of audio. it seems the satellite of luv got sucked into a black hole. this is a recording of the event in it’s entirety.
