Droid + Slug - SC: Podcast 4 - Shwantology

This is just a quickie to let you know about a new mix that myself and Slug wrapped up (in record time) at the start of the month. As I'd signed us both up to take part in the Subvert Central Podcasts before Christmas, and, as we usually take a few months to get a mix together from scratch - we decided to do something totally different, and go for an almost entirely improvised ambient, electronic, avant garde and orchestral set... those of you who dont know what Shwantology is better bone up! Its a combination of the somewhat vague term 'Hauntology' and the little known slang (outside Dublin Jungle circles) 'Shwantification'...

As some of you may know, we're not massively into computer mixing - so this was recorded live, simultaneously on 3 decks and 2 CDJ's... we weren't 100% happy with the final product, but we didnt have time to do a second take together, so I overdubbed about 11 tunes onto it (also live) after it was done... I'll have loads more info on the tunes and how the set was made (plus a few photos) up here within the next week or so, and I'll probably throw a slightly higher quality MP3 of this up here in the near future as well...

But for now, just lie back and enjoy...

That mix is a bit special; it's just got me through a slow hour in the office; mixing seems to work well too, 'phasing' the mix and bringing in different moods
