“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.

“It was acceptable in the ’80s…it was acceptable at the time.”

This is the most retro-sounding mix I’ve done that doesn’t actually use music from the ’80s. I think everything here was released within the last two years; most of them were released within the last few months. True there are some artists who reached their peak in the ’80s – Bananarama, Camouflage, Douglas McCarthy (Nitzer Ebb) – but it’s more of a feeling: the drums are louder, the basslines are fatter, the keyboards are older. I hear shades of Talking Heads, Tanz Waffen, and Re-Flex.

Apart from Kiss The Future Vol. 1 this is the closest I’ve gotten to “Jeb’s sound”.
