The summer hotness: James Ruskin – FACT mix 169 [download this s*** now]

July 27, 2010 § Leave a comment

This is just what I’ve been feeling lately.. a return to bleepy acid-house sounds pitched down to a shuffle. Thick basslines and clean clicks, the sounds of empty brooding warehouses. Nasty stuff for late-night drives or micro-jams in your loft. The mix kicks off with a classic track from Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works II (you know the track – the one that woke you up from your trip with those demented keys) and quickly picks up to a nice pace with tracks by Kevin Gorman and Marcel Dettman mixed atop. 4/4 slips intro breakbeats, some weirdness, some tribal house, some surgeon tracks.. The tracklist on this thing is sick.. and Ruskin slides through abstract sounds and chunky kicks.. dropping a lot of tracks for an hour and 43 minutes of mix. In the words of fellow music enthusiast JD Harrington, “This shit is off the fucking chain.”
