Trip To Manchester

One for Blackclassical and all the other granddads living in the past ;) Some of the old Chicago and Detoit stuff I picked up on a trip to Manchester on Friday. 
Apologies that my rips aren't the best and therefore do show up every single crackle and pop especially on the 20 year old Trax record which was probably a few other records in a past life. I think it kind of adds to the aged / rough vibe to the mix.

Armando - So In Love With You
Armando - Our House
Robert Armani - Invasion
Robert Armani - Pulse
Underground Resistance - Hardlife (Aaron Carl Remix)
Robert Armani - Ambulance
Armando - Which Way Is Up
Purpose Maker - Cubango
Jeff Mills - Scenario
Jeff Mills - Getaway
Jeff Mills - The Fear As We Know It
Dr Kevorkian - Aftermath (Option 1)
Underground Resistance - Method Of Force
Underground Resistance - The Punisher

A Mix for Paul Riley by Soul Identity

Here's a mix with a very simple premise. I posted up a request on Facebook and Twitter for three producers/artists last Friday with a view to them forming a nucleus of a mix I would record over the weekend for one individual. Paul Riley responded with three names: Norman Whitfield, Carl Craig and Francois K (Luckily three producers I have a lot of time for). This was meant to be a private gift to Paul, but he asked to share it with the world, so here it is.

It's a bit rough and ready in the mixing department as it's been long since I've produced a house mix (as you can see from the last dated upload), but hope you can bare with it. Just some favourites from the past couple of months, some older bits and of course Paul's tracks. I just had to include 'Hypnodelic'. One of my all time favourite tracks and EPs.
Thanks Paul.

The Temptations - Psychadelic Shack (Norman Whitfield!)
Stanley Cowell - The Stoker
Funk Fusion Band - Can You Feel It (Detroit Beatdown Edit)
Braxton Holmes & Black Coffee - Why You Tryin' To Hustle Me? 
Kemetic Just feat Terrance Downs - I Got Life (KZR's Manic Dub)
Directions - Busted Trees (Carl Craig's Spacetramental)
Theo Parrish - Falling Up (Craig Craig Remix)
Chez Damier — Help Myself (Carl Craig Reshape)
Francois K - Hynodelic
Contakt - Not Forgotten (Rolando's VNO Remix)
Michel Cleis - Litoral
Silkie - The Horizon

Happy Valentines Day

Something for everyone this Valentine’s Day. Ones for cuddling up to, ones for dancing around the kitchen and ones for slitting your wrists to if you are on your own. Ultra rare ones for the extrovert and bandcamp freebies for the cheapskates.
It’s not being wined and dinned in Paris but it’s better than 2 for 1 Morrisons takeaway for one.
One or two of ‘our songs’ are included plus one or two I wish were our songs but she says a lot of the stuff I listen to is terrible and I guess a lot people would agree with her.
