Since I knew that I was going to be releasing a live mix of mine recorded this summer comprised almost entirely of peak-hour techno and electro, I wanted the Dimension Series mix to go in a different direction. I was interested in doing a studio mix more along the lines of the podcast I had done for the Appal series a while back, which focused on music not so much aimed at the dance floor with a tempo somewhere below 120 bpm. I really liked this transition I’d come up with earlier with the Nurse With Wound and Demdike Stare tracks, so I chose some music in a similar vein/tempo range that I thought might work together and everything else more or less fell into place.

I’m not sure that the approach I’ve taken here is all that different to how I DJ techno and dance music in general—in that I try to avoid using too many “tool” tracks, play a mixture of older and newer tracks, create some sort of narrative arc —to me, those are the most important things, really. I’m fairly pleased with the end result here and I hope you enjoy it as well.

Thanks for listening.
