Sounds From the Lost Abbey 11

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 eleventh (and, at this point, last) in the series!

  1. White Zombie: More Human Than Human (Meet Bambi in the King’s Harem)
  2. The Sisters of Mercy: When You Don’t See Me
  3. Republica: Drop Dead Gorgeous
  4. The Cure: Friday I’m In Love (Strangelove)
  5. My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult: A Martini Built for 2
  6. Pulp: Common People (Full Length)
  7. Depeche Mode: Blasphemous Rumors
  8. Nine Inch Nails: Suck
  9. The Cure: Close to Me (Extended)
  10. Soft Cell: Tainted Love/Where Did Our Love Go (Hot Tracks)
  11. Orbital: Halcyon + On + On
  12. Underworld: Cowgirl
  13. Underworld: Rez

Where Time Becomes A Loop

Number seven from my old collection of mixes that I’m re-posting. We’re moving back into longer sessions again, with this one coming in at just under an hour. Of all the mixes I’ve had sitting around, this is one of my top three favorites, with my third favorite being yesterday’s ‘ToriMix’, and my top favorite coming tomorrow.

  1. Orbital ‘Time Becomes’
  2. DJ Geek ‘Travelling (Long)’
  3. Erasure ‘Run to the Sun (Amber Solaire)’
  4. BT ‘Remember (Paul Van Dyk’s Recollected)’
  5. Blue Amazon ‘The Javelin’
  6. ReleveleR ‘Sourpuss (UBE)’
  7. Sarah MacLachlan ‘I Love You (BT)’
  8. ATB ‘Don’t Stop (SQ-1)’
  9. Aqua ‘Dr. Jones (Antiloop Club)’
  10. Orbital ‘Time Becomes’

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.

A Fine Day’s Mix

The fifth of my old collection of mix sessions that I’m posting. This one is another “theme” idea I had, and depending on how much you like the base song, could be either enjoyable or excruciating, as it strings together four versions of the same theme into one 22-minute track. I actually like it…kind of dreamy background music.

  1. Opus III “It’s A Fine Day”
  2. Orbital “Halcyon & On & On”
  3. Orbital “Halcyon (Hot Tracks)”
  4. Miss Jane “It’s a Fine Day (Exit)”
