DiscoEx Archive: The First Threesie, Electro Sheezy
The concept of "threesies" is this: when I play records with other people, I like to trade every 3 records because in 3 records you can set a context for each track, change directions or progress in a certain way, or at the least get to x-fade both ways on the mixer.
So where other audio blogs are podcasting individual tracks, I choose to do threesies.

This dude's drums have some kind of weird sonic signature whether they're in one of his older, jazzy downtempo tunes or in some really sinister techno-breaks or acid stomper such as his recent output with his band Mu. This is his remix of Kirk DeGeorgio and Dan Keeling's Critical Phase project. Apparently the original contains a sample of one of my favorite Material tracks "Secret Life" but I don't detect a trace of it here. Here's a translated french interview with the Mu-man.|
|3. And finally we wind down with a sad note, because these bastards have decided to part ways, just when their output was reaching maximum DSP-electro potential. Ironically their last release has a track called "Here Comes Volsoc" which makes you just wish it was a new beginning instead of the end. Bastards. Maybe they got tired of being confused with those Volcom shirts I see the mallrats wearing.|
