“Choose your weapon, time to go…a military fashion show”

The fare here is a little edgier than previous mixes. If you grew up listening to EBM, Wax Trax! and Nettwerk Records you should feel right at home.

This mix was inspired by the And One track, which I’m obsessed with right now. I can has eastern European-sounding technopop with a military theme? Is it the Cold War all over again? Hells yeah! Thanks to Kynt for pointing it out, because I hadn’t heard anything by them since their debut single in 1990.

Kloq (a.k.a. Oz Morsley) is currently one of my favorites, and I’m eagerly awaiting his full-length album.

The Heaven 17 single has only been out for a month and it went down a storm when I DJed at Basket in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago.

“I love you baby, but face it; she’s Madonna.”

I love the new Erasure single. Vince Clark also shares a co-writing credit on the Freeform Five track which follows it.

I’m almost embarrassed to have Orgy’s name up there, but you have to hear the mix. It’s an embellished chunk of the original Blue Monday and the only surviving part of Orgy’s version is one line of the vocals. Yes, I know it’s nine years old.

Speaking of loops, I’ve finally hit on why it is that I hate 90′s dance music so much: the overuse of looped samples. Loops are lazy. It’s like “Here’s one bar of sampled drums; this will be your rhythm for the entire track.” I’m so happy that artists are going back to programming drum machines or just playing the fuckers live.

Unfortunately my copy of this file has gotten corrupted so I’m not able to share it, but I wanted to preserve the track listing here. Lee is digging around to see if he can find the original so I can repost it.
