week 17.2022 what I am listening to


Essential Guide To Lost Language 2000-2004 – Johan N. Lecander

Johan N Lecander has been one of my fave music tuber for years now: every week or so he make monographies of artists of label. This means he dig into the mud and find a lot of incredible gems.

This one for example is from 2000 to 2004, a period I am not very knowledgeable about. Luckily I am good to find good suggestions. This “trance” mix is very good: far from the pop, singed stuff of those years and much more close to the mid 90s as a mood, but sounding good as the 00’s.

Broken Party Stuff

Bicep at Printworks 2018 | Resident Advisor

As you might know i ve started to use ableton in late 2021, after 20+ years of a tracker. So basically i m back to square zero. Bicep stuff have so many nuances it s s joy to listen to them and try to learn tricks.

I also love their Happy / melancholic mood.

‘Intelligent’ Drum & Bass – Selected Works Part 2 (1994-2000)

3.5 hours of old skool, intelligent drum & bass. Not as great as the LTJ Bukem mix but a lot of great

Chillout / ambient

Moby DJ anti-party/after party ambient mix

Moby (yes THAT moby) makes a perfect “chill out room” mix. You might not know, but in many parties in the 90s there was always a small chill out room to help to transition from Beats and strobo to driving home. So when you listen to it, remember its use…
Great work Moby.

Pop / house

Tiësto & Ava Max – The Motto

On radio, they are blasting this track… and of course it does stick after a while. It’s not something I would look for usually, nevertheless I ve listened to this so many time that It deserved a spot here.
