The Savage & Beyond.…

I don’t usu­al­ly link to the Sound­cloud mix­es that fill part of my work­ing day. No rea­son — they just come, often make me hap­py and pro­duc­tive, and then go. Every now and then I’ll favourite one but rarely if ever, giv­en the amount of time that exists in my day and the way I go through music, return to them.

I might play this one again: Juan Atkins & Mas­ter Reece (a.k.a Kevin Saun­der­son), two-thirds of the holy Detroit tri­umvi­rate who did their bit to shift the world’s musi­cal axis in the 1980s and beyond, record­ed off a 1994 Deep Space Radio show host­ed by R&S, the huge­ly impor­tant Bel­gian label. It is, I think, Kevin Saun­der­son actu­al­ly in the mix all the way through, and — I’m not sure about this hav­ing only met the guy once — Juan Atkins voice. I’m sure some­one will cor­rect me if I’m wrong.

Either way, it’s a fan­tas­tic, albeit noisy, mix that draws from all edges of the elec­tron­ic spectrum.

It’s also an excuse to post this image again:

There is an error on the leg­end between Juan Atkins and Eddie Fowlkes, so :
