Usually I have a good idea of what spawned a mix or where the original idea mutated into the thing that crawls over the wires between you and me. That is not the case with this mix.
Looking at it after the fact I see only three cuts are recent (Sounds From the Ground, Kris Menace, and Etienne De Crecy) while others (Babble, LFO) range back more than a decade which skews the age of this mix backwards quite a ways. What was I doing back in those archives? It wasn’t a conscious choice to wander off so far.
There also came the strange place in running this mix that I ran out of steam. Being the parent of a four year old takes its toll on the body and about forty minutes into this the taxman came for his due.
What does all this mean? Most likely nothing. This writing is the shadow that falls between the idea and the reality of the music. The creation is before you but the conception is clouded and lost between the bits of broken glass that rats run over in the cellar.
But that is the wrong poetry to reference today, isn’t it? Let it stand as thus: “Speak, hands, for me!”.
