Logical Regression

va – special request – fact mix 362 (2012)

The deeper I get into music, the more I’m starting to like electro and rave. Sparse, full of energy and overcoming the limits of  hardware with creativity. UK DJ and producer Paul Woolford started his Special Request in 2012, releasing a few vinyl 12″s that introduced a 21st century take on early nineties rave and proto-jungle. “Soul Music“, a full album by Woolford’s alias, was released this week. I loved the early releases and have been eagerly awaiting more material… and the album delivers!

In the weeks leading up to the album’s release I’ve revisited the mix linked above. And listened to it again. And again. Damn this is good. Taking in eighties electro, Electronic Body Music, UK bleeps, classic Detroit and a few Special Request tunes, the flow and energy of the mix are inspired. Dig in.
