cold winter night

here's a pair of mixes i've been enjoying, particularly in the darker hours of this winter...

suspect - ambient mix 1995-2005
here's an interesting collection of slow grooves and evocative atmospheres to go with the deep, intense techno of the live set i discussed here. nice tracks with lots of echo, and the whole thing picks up a bit of steam towards the end of the mix. not much background info at all on this one, but check out suspect's homepage for more music.

silent servant - isolation mix
courtesy of mnml ssgs, here's an excellent dub-focused mix by silent servant, whose recent productions on the sandwell district imprint have been mostly no-bullshit techno affairs. this mix starts with some killer dub tracks, then gains some momentum and adds more techno elements to build this into a hypnotic journey. check out the mnml ssgs blog for more info and a tracklisting in the comments... and take a look at one of the few online traces of sandwell district's existence, where next? .

cheers, and stay warm!
