Sounds From the Lost Abbey 05

Back in February, I took up a challenge from one of my friends (prompted by the Gigs mix I posted) to create a mix based around songs that I’d have played at the Lost Abbey, during the mid- to late-1990s. To get a little help putting together the playlist, I put out a call for requests on Facebook, and ended up with something around 14 hours of possible songs, almost entirely pulled from requests by people who used to see me spin at the Lost Abbey.

Since 14 hours is far too long to do as a single mix, I’ve broken the requests up into multiple 80-ish-minute playlists. Here’s the fifth of quite a few to come!

  1. Lords of Acid: I Sit on Acid (Remix)
  2. DHS: House of God (DHS)
  3. Moby: Go
  4. Bigod 20: On the Run (Turbo Techno)
  5. Stabbing Westward and Wink: Torn Apart
  6. Gravity Kills: Guilty (Roli Mosimann)
  7. My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult: After the Flesh
  8. Marilyn Manson: The Horrible People
  9. Rocky Horror Picture Show: The Time Warp (Remix)
  10. Bauhaus: Bela Lugosi’s Dead
  11. Soft Cell: Sex Dwarf
  12. The Cure: Lullaby (Extended)
  13. Peter Murphy: Roll Call

Difficult Listening Hour 06 (110BPM)

After taking last weekend off (but hey, I gave you almost four hours in two mixes last time I updated), here’s another new practice mix. Every song in this mix is somewhere between 105 and 115 BPM. And as always, this was mixed “live” and has no post-processing or editing work, so while it may not be perfect, it’s all me!

  2. Aftershock ‘Slave to the Vibe’
  3. Faithless ‘Happy’
  4. Moby ‘Bodyrock (B and H’s Bodyrob)’
  5. Skeewiff ‘Man of Constant Sorrow’
  6. Utah Saints ‘Funky Music’
  7. Fluke ‘Atombomb (Atomix 3)’
  8. Pigface ‘Fuck it Up’
  9. Revolting Cocks ‘Beers, Steers and Queers’
  10. Art of Noise feat. Max Headroom ‘Paranoimia’
  11. Meat Beat Manifesto ‘Acid Again (Dub Again)’

Mission Accomplished

The fourth of my old collection of mix sessions that I’m posting. This one starts a few that move away from the “Difficult Listening Hour” series to explore some other ideas I had running through my head. It’s shorter, not quite half an hour long, and has something of a ‘spy music’ theme.

  1. Adam Clayton & Larry Mullen ‘Mission Impossible (Junior’s Hard/Intro)’
  2. Propellerheads ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’
  3. Moby ‘James Bond Theme (Hot Tracks)’
  4. Propellerheads ‘Spy Break’
  5. Adam Clayton & Larry Mullen ‘Mission Impossible (Junior’s Hard)’

This mix was mixed ‘live’ — running a Pioneer dual CD mixer directly into my computer and recording straight to .mp3 — and has had no post-mix editing done in the computer. As such, it’s not flawless, but it’s not bad, either, if I do say so myself.
