The Simon Baker one is painfully good, especially the first half to two thirds - the My My remixes are amazing! So slippery and squirmy. The second half is a fair bit dryer but still good - love the vocal on Ambivalent's "R U OK?," a totally sinister robo-sleaze who first helps out someone off their heads on drugs at a party, and then seduces them. It's like Aaron Carl doing a version of "One In Night in NYC",
The whole thing is very shapely and totally devoted to exploring a particular point where minimal and house converge - it's almost more like Jay Haze, My My and Tobi Neumann making a live set together than a DJ mix.

"Motor City Soul - Kazan (MyMy Mix) (Aus Music)"
This is now officially the best piece of music ever made.
― Tim F, Thursday, 24 May 2007 08:20 (5 years ago) Permalink
it's........ALRIGHT. I was a little disappointed by it to be honest, sounds like 20/20 Vision style UK house.
― Ronan, Thursday, 24 May 2007 08:36 (5 years ago) Permalink
Er, it is the track with all the insane synths in, right?
I dunno, I'm just trying to guess from what sounds like the order of tracks on the podcast.
Or are you talking about the podcast as a whole?
― Tim F, Friday, 25 May 2007 04:20 (5 years ago) Permalink
i'm not really sure what ronan likes these days ... it's been a while since 've seen him write anything positive on ILM!
― moonship journey to baja, Friday, 25 May 2007 04:39 (5 years ago) Permalink
i think the mix is sorta dry too but i felt the same way about ripperton and i think he *liked* that one.
i guess i just can't deal w/o vocals anymore.
― moonship journey to baja, Friday, 25 May 2007 04:41 (5 years ago) Permalink
I thought it was pretty dry as well and got tired of it fairly quickly. Funny he ends it with that Kerry Chandler track - it's such a partystarter.
― Jena, Friday, 25 May 2007 05:44 (5 years ago) Permalink
I'm surprised! This stuff sounds very wet and fluid to me.
― Tim F, Friday, 25 May 2007 08:13 (5 years ago) Permalink
I didn't mean the mix, I meant the My My track specifically, which I don't think is crap or anything (played it last night to see, very early on), just found it weird Tim thought it was so good.
that's not quite true, but I praise lots of stuff on the minimal threads. I do save a bit of praise for my blog so I have stuff to write about but I am pretty sure I have praised lots of stuff recently.
anyway things are pretty bad mostly so maybe my criticism is more jaded than usual!
― Ronan, Friday, 25 May 2007 12:01 (5 years ago) Permalink
Things = life or things = music?
If the latter, what developments have annoyed you Ronan?
Ronan does my description match the My My remix, it's sort of this glass cathedral of synth chords around a restless Tuning Spork-ish beat.
Actually what I like about the first forty minutes or so of this mix is that it's like a more melodic version of a Jay Haze mix.
― Tim F, Friday, 25 May 2007 13:39 (5 years ago) Permalink
Oh, life! Music is the one escape!
The last month in particular has been really good. I played for 3 hours last night and it was mostly stuff from the last couple of weeks eg the new Misstress Barbara is absolutely brilliant, Kiki's new Bpitch Control is the best thing he's ever done IMO, those Ink and Needle records, Feuervogel, Redshape's "Steam", Audion's "Noiser" obviously, the new Plasmik on Connaisseur.
As for that My My remix, it's very very "disco" to me, really kind of stomping and funky. I thought it was pretty cool but strayed a bit too close to Spirit Catcher or that sort of electronic disco house vibe for me.
― Ronan, Friday, 25 May 2007 14:58 (5 years ago) Permalink
Stomping and funky is good of course, it's a good track just not exactly like what my favourite stuff is at the moment.

this has Josh One-Contemplation (King Britt Funk Mix) on it! haha whoa...was thinking that track was due a comeback.
― Ronan, Tuesday, 29 May 2007 09:45 (5 years ago) Permalink
this is good :)
I really like the third track, heard it on another set recently.
― Ronan, Tuesday, 29 May 2007 10:43 (5 years ago) Permalink
Esp. this section:
10. Kevin Gorman – Black & White (Alex Under Remix)
11. Dennis Ferrer - Transitions
12. Matthias Tanzmann - Nip Slip
13. Marco Resmann - Gouache
I like how Tanzmann and Resmann (both Moon Harbour/Mobilee folx) have both gone all detroit synth pattern whore, and sebo k plays them together just to make the point. It's like he's calling them out, but in a good way. It was sort of his idea in the beginning anyways.
― Tim F, Tuesday, 29 May 2007 14:21 (5 years ago) Permalink
This mix is pretty the Bible for deep/minimal.
― Ronan, Tuesday, 29 May 2007 14:23 (5 years ago) Permalink
pretty much I mean
lots of "wtf this suxx why he get paid to dj ever" on the RA messageboard about it, but the riton one is fun. yes, the orgasmic woman bit is a bit of a groaner, but the rest is a trip. it passed the walking-around-the-woods-in-the-early-morn-whilst-stoned test while camping recently and passed with flying colors. i'd love to know what some of the krautrocky stuff is on there. only tunes i really recognize are vangelis and telex.
anyone else heard? i'll post a link if anyone cares to have a listen.

The Amé one is yoga flame for all time and is making me wish they were playing off-Sónar rather than at the shitty thing that I'm not going to :'-(

jim, it's only Frank that's playing the main sonar. The RA mix is Kristian. He refused to play at Sonar because they were getting paid peanuts, even though they're getting 20,000 people through the door. fair enough too.

The new Stefan Goldmann track, "Aurora", on the Stefan Goldmann mix, is so great - really shimmery. I love his sound, it's like if deep house took all its cues from Isolee and Joakim and James Holden. And it's so distinct and immediately recognisable too! Or is that just because this track is like the perfect midpoint between "Sleepy Hollow" and his remix of "Women In Toilet"?? Could he become the classy housey Bodzin?

can someone up the ame mix plz? it doesn't seem to be on that site anymore
― creme1, Tuesday, 12 June 2007 21:09 (5 years ago) Permalink
i think there are way too many mindless minimal bobbins mixes in this series, though.
is there anything even worth listening to twice out of the first 20? it didn't really get good until around #40 (except for maurice #21) and even then, it's been around 50/50 so far. not quite as good as fabric, in my estimation.
oh well, it's free.

i mean fuckin christ, it's like one of the best bridges between new deep house and new techno i've heard yet, in a mix.
― the table is the table, Wednesday, 13 June 2007 06:35 (5 years ago) Permalink
I left my ipod in Spain, but 50 euros later (!) it arrived in the post yesterday and I now have 6 of these to listen to. Where to start?
The last one I heard was the Riton one, which I really liked too, (apart from the spoken word bit about musique concrete, which struck me as pretentious in a really bad way - he's not really in that league!)
Anyone got a tracklist for the first half of that?
― Jamie T Smith, Wednesday, 13 June 2007 11:14 (5 years ago) Permalink
yeah i'd love a tracklist of that one, too. I recognize some (La Düsseldorf, Telex, Eno & Byrne) but most I don't. I'd really like to know that first track's ID - a brilliant motorik-driven glam song.
― willem, Wednesday, 13 June 2007 12:07 (5 years ago) Permalink
the first track's gotta be neu! or harmonia, right? i don't have those at hand to ID the track but it sounds an awful lot like "fur immer" period neu!
― moonship journey to baja, Wednesday, 13 June 2007 14:25 (5 years ago) Permalink
Don't think so, I'd definately recognize Neu! And I don't think it's Harmonia either, not unless they released more than the two albums I know... Like I said, this track has a touch of glamrock (Roxy meets Neu! in a way) that I've never heard from them (though it could be argued that Dinger injected a bit of it on Viva).
― willem, Thursday, 14 June 2007 09:02 (5 years ago) Permalink
is there anything even worth listening to twice out of the first 20?
ive listened to #2 (pig & dan) and #10 (serge santiago) a bunch of times!

my fave is probably #43 but then im a bit of a bodzin fanboy ^_^

The Troy & Pierce one was actually the best minus-y thing I'd heard, but I haven't listened it to a while so I'd have to go back and check.
― Tim F, Friday, 15 June 2007 22:19 (5 years ago) Permalink
Efdemin was really great, over an hour and 45 minutes of it too :)
All podcasts are available atthis site and by the fact that theres #58 (accredited to Guy Gerber by the way) up before Resident Advisor makes it pretty consistent, hmmn.
