too spoiled by luv

this chipper mixtape of early nineties happy house music marks the 11th anniversary of dj luv’s records. it has been longer than i like since i last put up a new mix. my 3 turntables were in the shop for their 400th mix tune up (by the Technics 1200 wizard at DCElectronics). after getting them back i wanted to give them a good work out so i went back to the reason i started using 3 turntables in the first place. to properly mix house music. using three decks makes the mixing experience less linear and leaves more room for experimentation and heavy mixing. my personal style, dubbed “abstract house”, is a relentless kind of dance music made up of layers upon layers of rhythms, melodies, vocals, oddities and grooves intended to keep the dancefloor bumpin’. these early nineties house music 12”s are firmly embedded in the foundation of my abstract house. play loud for maximum bounce. thanks for listening.
