a few months ago i was invited by the online journal secret thirteen
to put together a mix of an hour of music for their site (which has nearly 50 of such hours curated by a bunch of great music people).
what was most interesting about the invitation was they asked me to select music that might surprise people who are familiar with my sound work... and in many ways it was a much more interesting to pick music that had nothing to do with influences or similars... so instead of music that has fueled my own, it is music that has fueled my life.
over the past few years i have been amassing a ridiculously intuitive collection of 7 inch records from all over the world - mostly from the 60's and mostly not from the experimental or electronic music scene... so for this i grabbed some of my absolute favorites from a number of different countries and vernaculars including: pop, garage, psych, funk, soul, dub, etc., and much of it unavailable unless you visit my home.
the set is downloadable here.
