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

Difficult Listening Hour 11

Something new! No particular theme or idea behind this one, this was just me goofing around with the recently released djay 2 upgrade while prepping for tomorrow’s Rodeo City Rollergirls double header.

Difficult Listening Hour 02v2

The second of my old collection of mix sessions that I’m posting. A little longer than the last one, and a little more pop-y. There actually was a ‘v1’ of this mix, but it had a few slight flaws that I wanted to fix, and I ended up choosing a slightly different set of tracks to use (though, I may have simply introduced new flaws…so it goes). Hence, ‘v2’.

  1. Faithless ‘Salva Mea’
  2. Transister ‘Head (Hot Tracks)’
  3. Dee-Lite ‘Groove is in the Heart (Van Helden ’99)’
  4. Madonna ‘Music (Deep Dish Dot Com)’
  5. Sarah McLachlan ‘Possession (Rabbit in the Moon)’
  6. DJ Icey ‘This is How My Drummer Drums’
  7. The Crystal Method ‘Busy Child’
  8. Wink ‘Higher State of Consciousness (Itty Bitty Boozy Woozy/vs. Public Enemy)’
  9. Underworld ‘Rez’

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.

Difficult Listening Hour 01

The first of a few old mix sessions I’m re-posting. I hope to have something new to post in the not-terribly-distant future, but for now, this will get things started.

  1. Depeche Mode ‘Headstar’
  2. Wink feat. Trent Reznor ‘Black Bomb (Jerry in the Bag)’
  3. Pop Will Eat Itself ‘Menofearthereaper (Concrete No Fee No Fear)’
  4. Coil ‘The Snow (Answers Come in Dreams II)’
  5. Underworld ‘Dirty Epic (Dirty)’
  6. Drum Club ‘Sound System (Underworld)’
  7. Rabbit in the Moon ‘Subfusion’
