I’m particularly pleased with this mix. It was recorded in one take using nothing but vinyl, and I really locked in to the vibe as I mixed and cut my way through 90 minutes of some of the finest 303 abuse ever committed to wax. There’s something really hypnotic about this music, and I went deep into the zone as I did the mix, varying my mixing style from deep long mixes to quick mixes, moving through tracks seamlessly sometimes, whilst others working my way through with cuts and spinbacks, suddenly switching the basslines for maximum surprise. No simple segues for me! The mix itself slowly builds the intensity up from rolling acid to ravetastic warehouse stompers to fully-fledged squat-smashing mayhem, as the acid lines layer and layer and layer until you think your mind can’t take any more, only to find that things have gotten even crazier, and you just can’t get enough of it …

If you enjoyed previous London acid mixes from myself like Squat Rocking 2, Squat Rocking 3, and Pearsall’s Acid Test, then you will love this!

Special shout to Steve from 7D for offering me the chance to do the mix!

Happy Sunday! Hope you’re all having a good weekend so far.

For me, not so good, really, as I’ve been laid low with a cold (boo-hoo), which meant that yesterday I didn’t, as planned, re-record the third edition of my Morally Diminished series. I had a first go at it two weeks ago but after having listened to it for a bit I’ve decided that it could do with a slightly reshuffled tracklisting, because although the mixing was fine I thought the flow could be improved slightly. Since a gunked-up nose, a sore throat, and a fuzzy brain are not really conducive to chopping up funky techno, it’s been unavoidably delayed for at least another week or two.

Even so, I didn’t want to get through the weekend without offering up something cool, so, following on from the great feedback about his Weirdo tribute mix, I’m very happy to present all three volumes of Girdler Synthetic’s The Acid Roundabout series of London acid techno mixes. Since these mixes are available elsewhere as single mp3’s, I’ve put up links to them, but I’m hosting the zip packs of chopped tracks for your own audio pleasure, plus I’ve provided covers and cue files.

As with my own Squat Rocking mixes, these are unashamed tributes to the pop-pupilled madness of the London free party scene, pure firing 303 rave mayhem – definitely not the kind of music Simon Cowell will be featuring on his new dj talent show!

Which, of course, is a big part of what makes it so good – this is not music that makes compromises for mass appeal.

If you like these mixes, make sure you check out the new Penguin Conspiracy album, Machines of Love and Grace (right).

Enjoy!
