So the Flex Vienna mix I got is 4 hours long, but Lowlands mix is just 30 minutes?

Lowlandsmix is 2.5 hrs iirc. Maybe I still have it somewhere at home. Can check.

the flex vienna is 4 hours because it contains duplicate part at the middle. you gotta do some cutting to listen to it properly. cut the part starting 02:09:17 until the last 50 minutes & 15 seconds.

I really like the Coast 2 Coast mix, but it takes some time to sneak up on you I think. It's determinedly unhistrionic.

easily best mix cd of 2007 for me. tim, what is unhistrionic?

As in it's relatively laidback throughout, and never ostentatious in presenting its charms - no massive anthems or bangers really, or even "what was that" weird tracks or eclectic/surprising selections.

I guess it kind of peaks with the Carl Craig remix of "Poor People Must Work" and also "Sleepy Hollow", but on their other released mixes those would be build tracks rather than peak tracks.

However it's the best of their released DJ mixes in spite or maybe because of those things: it's just a lovely collection. There's something really gorgeous sounding about pretty much every track here. I adore the Chateau Flight and Buddha Khan tracks, and the Losoul remix of Freaks.

--well, i don't know about you but i think ct satin's "i found a friend" is massive. this mix introduced it to me.

Oh yeah but that's probably the one mildly ostentatious "hey look at this undiscovered singalong curio from the past" moment. Anyway I'm not criticizing the mix at all!

2 years pass...

These guys have been so consistent and excellent for years, I am looking forward very much to this. Their version of Underworld's "Crocodile" is such big fun, "Envisions" is a total anthem and "Ku Kanjani," the single from last year with Amampondo, was heavily under-rated.

Sort of surprised they haven't just up and released the best house album of the 21st century.

EDB, Friday, 20 April 2012 08:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

which is better, their live PA's or dj sets?

dan138zig (Durrr Durrr Durrrrrr), Friday, 20 April 2012 08:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

The Ame live PA I saw was outright transplendant. More or less perfect, actually.

Someone, I can't remember who, linked to this four hour set in one of the Todd Terje threads to talk about the mix into "Bizarre Love Triangle" but the rest of it is just as much fun:

haha that was me. fucking ecstatic moment. I can imagine myself crying if I had been on the dancefloor.

I don't know why this track doesn't get more love

thanks for that link!

Such awesome and consistent producers, I'm really looking forward to this.

Primary Structures aka their FACT mix was great too, I love the way it goes from the Charanjit Singh track into the galloping opera-techno of The Knife's "Seeds". Plus NDF's "Since We Last Met" is the best wispy, frail house track in recent years.

boxedjoy, Friday, 20 April 2012 09:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

kinda feel they're underrated though
