Foundation (2008)

This mix belongs with Over & Out as an interesting turning point in my taste as a DJ. I wasn’t only interested in super hard techno or soulful deep house. I was finally starting to cross over into more accessible styles. But the two mixes hold personal meaning too, as they helped one of my best friends through a difficult period in his life.

In 2008, I wrote:

“originally recorded for the funk-u show on broadcast on august 28, 2008. this is an extention of over & out, but heads into more serious territory later on. you could say this is my take on this whole minimal craze. while i don’t see myself playing entire minimal sets, i do see myself working its sound into a broader set. foundation finishes up with a minimix of the best work from mike dehnert, probably the most important new techno artist of the year.”

recorded at triboro studio, nyc 08.2008
