An ephemeral and purposely aimless mix for interstitial moments in life. A few unquantized blends thrown in to give the impression of authenticity (just kidding, this one is all vinyl)

Chocolette - It's That East Street Beat (1985)

Classic early New York house jam mixed by Boyd Jarvis and Timmy Regisford. It's all about the dub version here, although both of the other mixes are good in their own right. This one has been turning up in some of the Ron Hardy mixes I've been listening to lately. It's surprisingly affordable on vinyl too, so there's really no reason not to own a copy!

Anthony "Shake" Shakir/Underground Resistance/Kevin Saunderson - NSC 1-4 (1998)

This is without a doubt one of the most treasured artifacts in my collection, and I'm very pleased to be able to share it.

As the founder and operator of National Sound Corporation, Ron Murphy's role in shaping the sound of Detroit techno cannot be overstated. NSC mostly confined itself to mastering records for release on other labels, but Murphy also released a handful of records between 1998 and 2004 on his own label, NSC Records. The label's first release was a double pack pressed on gorgeous picture discs, featuring Detroit luminaries Anthony "Shake" Shakir, Underground Resistance, and Kevin Saunderson.

The Shake material, which comprises the entire first disc, is what makes this compilation essential. The highlight here is "NSC Tracker," a mesmerizing and utterly devastating feat of transcendent machine-soul. On the second disc, a rare and exclusive UR track and a vocal house jam by Kevin Saundeson round out the compilation. The Saunderson track is the only lackluster moment here, but given the other gems on offer, this is only a minor gripe.


NSC 1-4
A - Shake - "NSC Tracker"
B1 - Shake - "Foundry"
B2 - Shake - "Landing, Surveying"
C - Underground Resistance - UR-046
D - Kevin Saunderson - "Talk to Me"

And finally, here's a Submerge podcast featuring an interview with the late Ron Murphy:


Ehlert & Lohberger - Vito EP (2000)

The "most overlooked" record in the Kompakt catalog, according to Michael Mayer himself in a recent Pitchfork interview. I'm inclined to agree -- this is definitely one of my favorite recent discoveries.

The Modernist - 4 Remixe Für The Modernist (2001)

Wolfgang Voigt remixes Jörg Burger under four different guises -- all of them excellent. Ranging from the moody, melancholic keys of the Wassermann remix to the pummeling warehouse workout of the Auftrieb remix, this 12" is a snapshot of one electronic music's most versatile producers.
