I wanted this mix to represent the broad range of styles in my collection that I've enjoyed listening to over the last couple of years. It was a great opportunity to incorporate some of my favourite tunes, including Rhyl, by Function & Inland, Gotham, by Ten Walls, Another Wedged Chicken by Shed and finishing with one of my favourites from 2014, Ganzfeld, by Objekt. Within the realm of dance music, and even the broad church of techno, there's always been fragmentation of genres, it's not a new thing, the universe of dance music has been expanding for quite a few years. I just hope that I've captured some of the diversity, vibrancy and originality that has been a hallmark of the underground dance scene for many years.

I've done two techno mixes and a breaks mix, so I'm either going to take the plunge and do a drum n bass mix or may be another breaks mix. I think the drum n bass mix will present a greater challenge to my limited skills, but I feel that I would enjoy doing another journey into the world of hip hop and funky breakbeats than a full on mix of drum n bass. I also have some long term plans. I'd like to try to do a mix of artists like Boards of Canada and Autechre, and some old school drum n bass, but one step at a time, I'm still learning.

Replicant Bangin' Techno Mix

Replicant Techno Mix

This is my second mix, and going into this my game plan for this assortment was to change genres. I've been a life long fan of the 'hypnotic groove' and I wanted to incorporate some of the new material that I've been listening to, but I also wanted to take the opportunity to highlight some of my personal favourite techno tunes that I've admired over the last couple of years, namely Forged by Trevino (the awesome Marcus Intalex) Few Mysteries Solved In A Year Of Contact by Sagat, Detune by Mary Velo, Hoax Eye by Call Super, Field Depth by Answer Code Request and Voiceprint (Reprise) by (the phenomenal) Function. It gave me great pleasure to complete this mix relatively unscathed! I just hope that I've done justice to some of the amazing recordings which I have featured. I also wanted to acknowledge the profound influence that the film Blade Runner, and it's renowned soundtrack composer and recording artist, Vangelis has had on me throughout my life.

DJ Subway: Funky Breaks Mix

DJ Subway - Funky Breaks Mix 

Notes On Funky Breaks:

After a long time out of the game, and with encouragement and inspiration from my friends I decided to get back to doing something which was a passion of mine, mixing and experimenting with music. I decided to start with a mix based on breaks. Combining some funky hip hop flavas, moving on to some harder electro and edgier breaks. It is in no way perfect. In fact there are a few glaring errors, but it's just nice to get back to doing something which I love, playing music.

This is a breaks mix that I put together which features everything from the funky disco of Cole Medina, the 80's funky electro of The Pointer Sisters, Automatic, the bass driven breakbeat mix Pocket Piano by Kink, the statuesque The Fall by Superlifter/Half Dragon, to the massive drum n bass remix of Wiley by Special Request. This mix also features tracks from artists like Stanton Warriors, Freestylers, Head High, (Shed) Dego, Ewan Hoozami, El Bomba, Beatslappaz, Pirate Jams and many more artists and block party beats.
