Been working on this one for a while now. Late night sessions lend well to deep, blunted out soundtracks. Taking in classics from the last few years along with some recent cuts, this mix represents a lot of what I like best about this time in electronic music. It's techno without the rules. Sweet Detroit sounding stabs set to non 4/4 beats, movement, pad swells, space and distance.

The good lads over at Le Tanque were looking for contributions to their XXXX Nights mix series. The premise was simple enough. Put together a collection of the tunes you would play for your mates when you get home from club. When the night isn't over, but the sun isn't up yet either. So if I went out to clubs, which I don't, this is what I would play when I get home.

Mixology number 7 in the FundamentalGarage.com mix series is provided by none other than your boyz .A.K. & GON. The last thing Gon and I took on together and literally the last thing done in Studio Dudio before we had to tear it all down and pack it up for the move to London. This mix ended up being recorded in two parts because of the time pressures of an impending trip to Italy and was literally finished 15 minutes after we were supposed to have showed up at Gon & Halfdutch's going away party.

Urban youth culture is distressing to me, I kind of feel guilty even mixing these tracks, a guilty pleasure though. Grime and its derivative forms have always been a passion for me, but secretly so. I still hold out hope that one day we might be treated to lyrics about something meaningful. The death of political and socially aware undercurrents in youth music is a sad state of affairs, but you have to admit the tracks are savage.
