A g.a.b.l@bs & Muzag "alternating" DJ mix

Back when Gene was releasing his slipstream project we got into conversation and he suggested we do an alt-dj mix in the ambient-ish genre. Here is the result. For those that like to guess, the tracks don't strictly alternate but I'm sure you can guess the source of at least some of them :) [Full details are supplied with the mix]. Artwork by g.a.b.l@bs, mixing by Muzag.

This proved such a pleasant experience that we are now working on a follow up mix.

Oh yes, I can sympathise with you on the Mont St Michel front. I was lucky enough to be able to plan my visit so that I arrived in the evening when most people were gone or at least leaving (and even then it was pretty horrendous). We spent the night there and visited the abbey at around 11pm which is definitely the best (less people/more atmosphere) time to see it.

This was a lot of fun, mainly because we kept the entire process very fluid: no rules, deadlines or genre structure (well, ahem...almost on the genre thing ;-]). Tunes were bounced back & forth between our respective coastlines and, quite frequently, we had converging ideas re: composition/construction. All in all a "nifty" time...with part 2 on the drawing/mixing board as we speak...
PS: the high pitched shrieking noises mid-mix are, as yet, an unexplained phenomenon...but perhaps Gary can shed some light... :-0

I can't wait to give this a spin. I'm always intrigued and amazed by your field recordings. Sprinkly in the texture from g.a.b. l@bs and I'm sure this a scortcher of a mix.

A match made in heaven. Don't recognize much here, but I do recognize a great cover when I see one.

Sorry about that, Luke (though I don't know where in the system the glitch exists). If anyone else is having trouble with the link, try this one.

A beautiful listen - I quite often lost myself in this. Not sure which song was playing from one minute to the next, a testemant to the great mixing & flow that'll be - but remember loving 21mins-30 and the track at 45 mins. And the closing 8 minutes was lovely. Damn it, it was all great..

Thanks, Sammy - and everyone else ;). The 21-20min stretch would be Vangelis/Pausal, 45min would be Endlos. There are links above to the Pausal & Endlos source albums (MP-free's both, and both contributed by g.a.b. l@bs). The closing 8 mins would be from Klaus Schultze onward (contributions from me - the Vangelis & Schultze tracks are a throw back to earlier Mood mixes that incorporated loathed synthesists).

I've updated the original download

link, it should work okay again now.

sorry I didn't get my comments on this one before it slipped off the charts, but I was away from my computer, paying a late-night visit to Mont St. Michel Abbey to thank God for such a swift answering of prayers. it's lovely, guys, and was perfect for a morning listen today. very pleased to see Muzag back on the list, and looking forward to the follow-up, most surely.
