I’m am really enjoying having 2 decks to play around on (finally) and mixing it up with a couple tracks on CDJ. Here some lush, dubby and chunky deep techno & house recorded today during an extended “home working” lunchbreak. A few news bits and some older but all rather funky :)

It’s taken a certain amount of time and delicacy to coax them into recording a mix for us, despite, or perhaps because of, their affiliation to Blackest Ever Black, a label independently operated by FACT’s Kiran Sande. They’re a shy, and moreover a selective, pair. To date, Raime have created two mixes for public consumption, but in both instances these have been released as limited edition CD-Rs on Blackest. Their first (which you can download here), entitled You Can’t Hide Your Headcrack, was issued shortly ahead of their debut 12″ offering, and established links between their own music and that of passive-aggressive industrial and goth artists from the late 70s and early 80s. Though they weren’t too proud to drop some familiar names – their beloved Cabaret Voltaire and Ike Yard, for example – Headcrack was first and foremost an act of serious diggers’ devotion, and it’s tracklist was constituted largely by the (today) lesser-known likes of German Shepherds and Metabolist.
A second Raime mix, Living In The Gaps We Cannot Jump, was released as part of a hand-made double-disc set, again released as a limited edition through Blackest Ever Black (the centrepiece of the set being a 5.1 surround sound DVD that documents an installation they created for this year’s Unsound Festival New York, The Three Chambers Of Our Entities). This selection too situated itself firmly in the cold war years, with contributions from Experiments With Ice, Pink Military, The Klinik, Shoc Corridor and Nagamatzu.
But there’s something else that exerts an influence on Raime equal to, perhaps even in excess of, that of anything from the post-punk era: jungle. Jungle, particularly that made in ’94-’95, when the music was as rough-hewn as it was progressive, is an essential part of Raime’s make-up, and it’s also the focus of their FACT mix. Upon first hearing Raime’s own records, you might doubt the links to jungle, but the more you immerse yourself in their slender catalogue, the more obvious the similarities become: the absolute primacy of rolling drums, the sub-bass pressure, the cerebralism and the brute-force, the dynamism and the dread. Hell, you could argue that Raime’s music is a vision of how jungle might have sounded if it had embraced goth’s thorny romanticism and early industrial’s queasy bio-mechanics.
We can but speculate; all we know for sure is that Raime know their onions, and that their blistering FACT mix aims straight for the heart of the ’93-’95 sound, with one stretch into ’96. From the disorienting drum choppage of Dilijna to the rudeboy tearjerking of D’Cruze’s ‘Nightvision’ mix, via the none-more-debonair roll of The Truper, this mix isn’t some art-school misappropriation of the past, it’s a lean, mean love-letter to a future that never quite came to pass – but may still yet.

This week’s Besti-mix come courtesy of Coley who produces under the name of Luv*Jam, the name of the parties that a small north Welsh tribe developed to pursue their musical tastes in Wrexham. Some of you might have had the pleasure of experiencing their no-holds-barred party for yourself at this year’s Bestival or at any of the unusual party locations they’ve made their own over the past 12 months; this lot have had it away everywhere from concrete bunkers to the terrace at Space.
Now, comes their own music and art project, Crow Castle Cuts - named after a local medieval fort in Llangollen, whose third release is out on November 11 (lovingly packaged on vinyl only and including ancient text about sacred fairies!), the same date as their next Luv*Jam party.
Right now though, tuck into their Besti-mix, a 23-track vinyl-only recording starring Aphex Twin, Jason Fine and F.U.S.E. (aka Richie Hawtin)…

While operating broadly within the world of deep, hypnotic techno, natural/electronic.system. present their own distinctive take on the sound. Antonio and Valerio have a special ability for building: allowing the music to breathe and slowly develop. There is a real beauty in the pace and manner in which natural/electronic.system. construct their DJ sets. This is what distinguishes their approach. You will have heard this in the other mixes they’ve done for us (mx23 and mx49), and this time you will hear it in a slightly different context, with the two each doing a separate mix. This week we have one from Antonio, and next week it will be Valerio’s turn.
