my name is brian and i live in chicago. i appreciate, among other things: good music, good parties, and good people who share these interests - particularly cute girls who like techno. this is where you can learn about some of these obsessions. an important part of my mission here is sharing abstract sounds from around the world via the anatomy mix series. outside of this blog, i write for resident advisor (check out my reviews here), and occasionally i play my records around chicago under the dj name patty (check out my mixes here). the opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone. i will not upload official releases; please support the artists and please support vinyl!
