With a little Dj mix at the end from my fingers, more music to come in the following weeks . since ive been away for so so long (1 year) while i'm at home i should get down to business and do something productive!
first twenty copies come with collages pre made... last 30 come with the parts to make your own collage !
In 2005 i did a series of interviews talking to people who know their stuff about rare records, mostly disco records and records to be played in a disco situation. In short i picked the brains of both Alex Bond from the
New Religion label and also Balearic Mike from Vinyl Exchange in Manchester.
Here is a short interview with Balearic Mike on the subject of Cosmic Disco : a lot has happened since i did this interview but i still think it has some interesting points and some tunes to track down. Mike was really one of the people who knew a lot about cosmic before it became 'the thing to say you play' ! Mikes mixes have always been original and often i'd cringe when he played certain cheesy records when he used to work at vinyl exchange. Looking back from where i am now i realize that even the rubbish records he liked were just records i didn't quite get at the time. Mike was buying records before i was even born and it really shows in his selections. try and track down some of his mixes online or buy his Originals CD if you can find a copy anywhere as it looks to be sold out everywhere it was available.
have a listen to it here Keswicklemon And Balearic Mike Cosmic Interview
The interview with Alex Bond took place in Oklahoma Cafe around the same time as Mikes interview about a year after his compilation called "A Secret History came out, a compilation bringing together many absolutely classic records from the past that was a bit of an eye opener for me New Religion Presents A Secret History Discogs Page i also saw alex Dj a few times and his mixes on Ableton Live were really something special especially one night at Black Heart Disco (possibly the last one?) Alex seriously destroyed the dancefloor mixing Basic Channel records with disco and dropping just a few seconds of a really really fat beat into the mix. Like i said Alex knows his stuff and he is another serious serious record collector with some really special pieces. have a listen to his voice here talking on the subject of Techno Not Techno.
