"The mix was recorded at my studio, Metal Box, which is situated on a peninsula where the River Lea meets the Thames. I recorded it late at night, looking over the river and the adjacent steel factory. I used two Technics 1210s, my trusty old Vestax PMC-46 mixer and a RE-20 Space Echo pedal.
I only DJ with vinyl, a habit I don’t think I’ll ever break. Some of these records, like the Shake’s Frictionlized and Florence, are 30 years old, so please excuse the scratches.
I didn’t plan this mix, just decided on opening a record and rolled from there, which is how I play out - searching for blends and that magical feeling when two records meet and form something new, channelling the feeling of unity and escape that occurs when you get lost in the music." - Richard Fearless
