Re: That time of year...
- Albums: the mars volta - "frances the mute", princess superstar -
"my machine", asian dub foundation - "tank", esthero - "wikked lil
grrls". team sleep and gorrillaz are honorable mentions too :)
Tracks: team sleep - "king diamond", princess superstar - "bad girls
NYC", m83 - "car chase terror" (this track is just... crazy). ADF -
"who runs the place", Enigma - Hello and welcome (new track, YAY!)
Mixes: Influenza - august 2005 mix (got it from mix-tapes.de i
believe, amazing breaks, would especially reccomend it to those who
hate it when hybrid and dub pistols spin too much house into sets).
and the Hybrid Liquified sets are great.
Remixes: puscifer "rev 22:20" (4:20 mix), Hooverphonic - "You hurt
me" (no more sweet music mix), Collide - "Tempted" (Conjure One Mix)
(last years, but i just got the cd recently).
Event: mars volta/system show, as well as NIN show.
Looking forward to new hooverphonic, tool, enigma, sneaker pimps,
and a damn hybrid show in my town!!!
