So, the first thing I forgot in my vocal intro was the title of Paul Birken‘s Waite Park EP, AKA HiPass Music HPS12-05, where the first track of this mix comes from. Birken has a bunch of old releases up at his bandcamp currently listed at name-your-price; if you’re looking for midwest acid, techno, and the occasional chunky beat then I recommend you head over there and flip through his catalog.

Headz (A Soundtrack Of Experimental Beathead Jams) is the second thing I forgot. That’s the title of the famous Mo Wax compilation that both tracks 2 and 3 come from. In my defense I didn’t have the artwork in front of me.

Come Alive by Nitzer Ebb doesn’t really fit here, but I wanted to hear it, so it takes a prime slot at the end of this hour. It’s the one track on the As Is EP I really like, and the pressing sounds good, 12″ at 45 RPM.

I’ll do something quick again next week, probably electro hovering around 135. I’ve got some new tunes to play, so check back if you’re interested in that.
