We have had individual threads about some of the standouts, but are there any others that are either excellent and haven't gotten a mention, or so bad that they shouldn't be mentioned?

(We should have one of these for the DJ Kicks series as well!)

Aaron Grossman (aajjgg), Monday, 27 October 2003 21:12 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

the bugz and mayer ones are excellent; best mixes of the year, maybe.

the series itself seems middlebrow as hell and some of the other participants fill me with fear but the results justify on this evidence. (all i've heard.)

mohammed abba (dubplatestyle), Monday, 27 October 2003 21:38 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

the John Peel one is kind of fun but probably not what we're really talking about here.

I wish "middlebrow" were my greatest fear

Sonny A. (Keiko), Monday, 27 October 2003 21:41 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

did i say "greatest"?

mohammed abba (dubplatestyle), Monday, 27 October 2003 21:54 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

i'm going to represent here for the Bent and Jacques Lu Cont mixes though they've been well discussed elsewhere.

the Radioactive Man mix is excellent if you like tough, booming quasi-breaks electro. i agree with Matos on the John Peel mix.

my big surprise over the weekend was how much I enjoyed Fabric 6 - Tyler Stadius. like the promo says, it's a "hot, heavy trip, wrapped in percussion and drowned in echo". so it's very minimal, tribal deep house. most tracks are just an urgent two or three note bassline and congas, bongoes, shakers, kicks and snares under many layers of delay and reverb. what struck me most was how little seperates this style from DFA tracks like "dance to the underground" or their mix of "orange alert". really it's just a few elements: in the DFA tracks you get a chicken-scratchy guitar and in the Jay Tripwire tracks you have bleary deep house synth pads.

so yeah, the Tyler Stadius mix is surprising high-quality, even if the rhythm & sound outro feels tacked-on.

also James Lavelle's mix is excellent though I can't think of what to say about it other than Andy K's comments on allmusic are quite right.

vahid (vahid), Monday, 27 October 2003 21:54 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

i can't say that vols 1-5 of the fabric series seem very appealing, nor any of the drum and bass volumes, nor the slam or swayzak mixes, nor the ali b or howie b.

vahid (vahid), Monday, 27 October 2003 21:56 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

Horrible idea, horrible sleeves, something rancid about their packaging the best DJs into their brand and flogging it off.

That said I really like alot of them so they have sort of duped me I suppose.

Ronan (Ronan), Monday, 27 October 2003 22:07 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

the jacques mix is ace.

i used to subscribe to them. got em super cheap. but i've given up. it was a luxury i can no longer aford.

the plumps mix is also mighty fine for your party breakbeat needs.

gallantseagull, Monday, 27 October 2003 22:33 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

matos the whole point of the thread is to discuss all of them, regardless of what genre, so tell me more about the peel disc. :-)

Aaron Grossman (aajjgg), Monday, 27 October 2003 23:16 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

The Swayzak release looks pretty great but I've got too much track-overlap to justify buying it any time soon.

The Bent one is surprisingly high quality but I wonder how much my initial appreciation for it was based on not having heard Annie's "The Greatest Hit" before.

I agree with Ronan in that I instinctively want to dislike these albums; like, I'm sure I'm going to adore the Michael Mayer mix but there's something vaguely disquieting about tying him into the Fabric brand.

Tim Finney (Tim Finney), Monday, 27 October 2003 23:22 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

Horrible idea, horrible sleeves, something rancid about their packaging the best DJs into their brand and flogging it off.

Sorry, what's the problem with the Fabric brand? Is it too parasitic or something?

I guess there's the issue of it being a 'more discerning' take on dance-culture than say, Ministry of Sound; despite essentially functioning in an identical 'corporate' manner.

But then, there's the upside of it representing a mutation of the superclub that actually comes off as sort of relevant. Plus, it's great to see Michael Mayer gaining some much needed exposure. I'd actually like to hear more Microhouse in the 'mainstream'...

Michael Dieter, Tuesday, 28 October 2003 04:57 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

i actually really like the sleeves for the first six fabric CDs, the ones with the swingers overlaid with flying animals in hippie pinks and blues. i want huge velvet posters of those pictures for my room.

vahid (vahid), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 05:06 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

If you have any tolerance at all for deep house, the Hipp-E and Halo CD is excellent. I also like Radioactive Man, and I absolutely love Swayzak. Eagerly awaiting Michael Mayer.

Destroy: Doc Martin (horrible noodly deep house, badly mixed too), Slam (bog-standard tech-house, although it ends on a great note with UR's "Inspiration"), and especially The Amalgamation of Soundz, which is sleep-inducing even by the standards of chillout music.

Angus Gordon (angusg), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 05:45 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

this whole brand issue in clubbing is strange here in america because there are no clubs or magazines strong enough to be off-putting with their branding.

to what degree is a purchase an endorsement? that is the tough question from all of this because you can easily have a MoS cd next to a fabric one in you collection and enjoy both. i really give cultural material a real exemption from that "purchase as endorsement" idea because cultural material takes longer to understand than, say, and SUV ;-)

Aaron Grossman (aajjgg), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 05:47 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

I don't have a problem with Fabric itself so much as the aristocracy of cool that its pan-genre approach implies. It probably would have been better if they hadn't started with James Lavelle.

Tim Finney (Tim Finney), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 06:12 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

aah i see! aristocracy of cool is pretty dud. there is, however, the slight possibility that lavelle was jsut the first guy they could rope in, or maybe the first out of 5 people on contract to finish his mix ;-)

do you think other series' of mix cds suffer from the same aristocratic nature (ie dj kicks)? also, what is the alternate approach? if fabric is a sort of aristocracy of cool than i agree about your problem, but, for Socrates' sake, i wonder why aving a series of mix cds that represent only one genre would not imply any sort of elitism or favoritism? is it because fabric is parasitic as Michael said?

Aaron Grossman (aajjgg), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 06:25 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

pardon me - i have my head up my ass. so far i am most interested in the le cont and mayer discs, but i do have a soft spot in my heart for tony humphries and i am wondering if anyone has heard his disc. also, i heard the hipp-e disc over the system at a Tower records and liked it a lot, but i only heard about half an hour of it.

Aaron Grossman (aajjgg), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 06:35 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

OK, well the only one I have is Fabric 03 with Jon Marsh, since I always liked the Beloved and heard he was a great DJ who played really deep, obscure house.

It's pretty good - not exactly big, epic stompin choons, but it has its moments. Oddly, it was really hard to find - most shops has every other number in the series except 03. I couldn't work out if that was because it was really popular or they didn't bother stocking it...

Rob Bolton (Rob Bolton), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 09:53 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

i agree, the hipp-e and halo mix sounds great, i've really warmed up to freaks and SWAG and the rest of the 80s-styled almost-micro weirdhouse contingent (someone needs to come up with a good name for these people). i think i'll pick it up this weekend and let everyone know.

(as an aside: has anybody heard the two anniversary mixes on classic? there's a one-disc mix by doc martin that looks ok and a two-disc mix by luke solomon and derrick carter that looks great but i wonder if it hasn't dated by now)

vahid (vahid), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 18:58 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

I may actually try buying some of these now! So far, I'd only dug Bent and Jacques' efforts.

Barima (Barima), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 19:02 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

oh and about the swayzak mix: agreeing with tim, a look at the tracklisting shows lots of overcompiled material, a couple tracks that sound interessant (MMM's "donna" in particular) and some stuff that looks trendy / scary / out of place.

BUT - i have it on good authority from trusted friends that the mixing is good enough to (literally) make you weep.

so does anybody know?

vahid (vahid), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 19:04 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

what really annoys me about Lavelle's mix is that he first repackaged it as a super-limited 3cd mix, and then repackaged it AGAIN for a 2cd mix. not to mention in the meantime he repackaged it as an Essential Mix and turned in an identical-sounding Global Underground mix. i feel like he's about to tweak the tracklisting again and sell it with limited-edition BAPE sneakers or something.

vahid (vahid), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 19:12 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

the swayzak one is fantastic, i think i've lost my copy though. i listened to it every day for a while, anyway.

toby (tsg20), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 19:33 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

favourites are hipp-e and halo, and swayzak.

only real duds i've heard are james lavelle and amalgamationz of sound...

paulhw (paulhw), Tuesday, 28 October 2003 21:00 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

bullshit re: doc martin. i had dismissed it as the usual boring shit until i actually listened to it (go fig) and found it to be an exquisitely mixed trip through different house styles with an extremely slow build that caught my attention immediately.
other recommendations: bugz, swayzak (though some transitions are lazy)
the rest: bah.

former MoWax dude, member of U.N.K.L.E. which used to also have DJ Shadow until Shadow figured out Lavelle was a dick. tho the phrase "he is the epitome of "proper" "beardy" tastemakers" puts it better than i could.

The Radioactive Man one is really very good, as is Swayzak - wasn't too keen on Grooverider though. I love the John Peel one though - it's basically like listening to a "best of" of his radio shows except he puts the records on the correct speed and doesn't talk for hours on end.

one year passes...
I picked up the Diplo disc. It's a good mix, but I feel sort of silly for buying it -- it's more the kind of thing that I'd like to hear in a party or club than on headphones at home. Not that I should be surprised, I guess.

Diplo's mixing is also occasionally a little weak. When he transitions from The Cure to Bombs Over Baghdad, the two songs are blatantly out of tune with each other and it's ugly.

Jamie T Smith (Jamie T Smith), Monday, 13 February 2006 08:48 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I've only got that one and Ivan Smagghe (which I thought was very diaappointing) and someone copied me the Diplo, Swayzak and Akufen, but I haven't had a chance to listen to all of them yet.

I agree with Abbadavid that the Diplo one does sound like it would be good out, but not necessarily something you want to listen to a lot. That's why it's good they're cheap now! Mixes should be more disposable.

(So er ... why this thread, but never mind)

Jamie T Smith (Jamie T Smith), Monday, 13 February 2006 09:03 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

JLC (aka THE MIX THAT WILL NEVER DIE), weatherall, mayer = my faves. would like to hear the akufen and swayzak ones sometime. and the carl craig and smagghe. too many to get around to!

Love the Call Super mix (really like his album from a few years ago too but this is very different).

Had not heard the house version of Photek's "T'Raenon" before, it's very pretty. Kind of nerdishly amused by how the track sequencing implies that Photek leads with a breakbeat when in fact it's Bushwacka's (it's almost like a small joke about how much we have forgotten about 90s dance music).

four months pass...

Listened to that the other day, very suited for an early spring - extremely pleasant and entirely unchallenging.

Yeah the Bonobo mix sounds pretty great when all you can see is blue sky.

I don't care about Bonobo as an artist at all (I always assumed he was kind of politely unchallenging, Four Tet with all the rough edges sanded off). But if Dixon had turned in this mix - which he quite easily could have - people would be falling over themselves to hosanna it.
