1  Food for your Ears / Hijackers' Tunes and Mixes / Driftwood Mix on: April 27, 2016, 08:01:11
Finally managed to find the time to put all my driftwood 12s onto one mix. This is my 2nd attempt..my first attempt ended abruptly when i found out that there is no warning when the battery is low and the Laptop just dies. And no, the Audacity auto recovery did not work.

The result is here - https://soundcloud.com/placid_88/placids-driftwood-mix

Anyhoo....a selection of my favourite driftwood releases... pitched down as it was a late night vibe

No need for a tracklist, there was only 10 releases so fairly easy to work out whats what. Fortunately, I had most of them before they went spiralling into orbit pricewise,

Theres at least one track on every release which is simply sublime. The more I listen, the more i love them.

Big thanks to Eric Cloutier for his original Driftwood mix which inspired me to do this one..and to Anil..who really opened my eyes to the Jeremy / Elias 12s.

Done on 2xTechnics 1210's. No edits, no nonsense, just records.

Now That's What I Call House

Thought I'd put together a little mix of house music.

I'm not going to start breaking it down into micro/sub genres simply because there is no need. It's house music, that's all you need to know

5  Food for your Ears / Hijackers' Tunes and Mixes / Classics not Classics 'Holy Grails' on: November 30, 2014, 09:37:43
It's not very often I have all my rare chicago 12's and a spare 100 minutes these days..  however, the planets aligned last night and the result is a 100 minute mix..

My classics not classics series came about when a friend asked me to put my old, less known chicago stuff into a mix.  As much as we loved them..we were bored by the same old chicago tunes appearing in all the mixes and compilations..so i tried to make people aware of a whole load of lesser known tracks by lesser known artists… I went on to do 6 volumes…  they're getting on a bit now..and only 192 kbps so I thought id put all my favourite ones in one mix. Fastforward 10 years..and the advent of the Discogs bubble.. and the availability of every track known to man on Youtube…the not of 'lesser known' as they were..but they are still great tracks.

6  Food for your Ears / Hijackers' Tunes and Mixes / I Love Acid - A TB Dedication Mix on: August 18, 2014, 21:29:03
A mix celebrating the unmitigated joy that was I Love Acid. Containing ILA resident's tracks and ILA guests from over the years.

If i was a digital DJ it would be a lot longer and a lot more varied, but the constraints of vinyl mean i can only play what I have.

Anyway..some moments of squelchy joy...

Thanks to Josh for putting it on..and all those who played and attended.

My top 25 Dub Techno tracks. (as at 27 September 2012.. as with my acid.. i could do  the same title in two weeks and only play half the same records....

Of course there are some that could have gone on there,  and maybe a couple that i thought went quite well rather than my favourites but overall its got a nice little vibe going *..

* - i should really listen back to it at some point before making wild claims

Anyway  enjoy   Will do a tracklist at some point...  If anyone can name the tracklist  Ill think of something nice to give them

Placid's Top 25 Acid House of all time

Can be heard here -http://soundcloud.com/placid_88 (be quick, download only allows 100)

A 2hour mix up of my current Top 25 or 'how many I can get in 2 hours' of acid house tracks from the last 24 years......

You may notice Ive omitted a lot of 'classics'. I didnt want it to turn into a acid thunder, acid over,magik feet mixathon... so i put stuff in there which ive been into for years but might not mean that much to you...

If you fancy having your cerebral cortex massaged or hammered depending on your acidic persuasion then give it a whirl.

No tracklist on this one for the moment - If you know your acid, you won't need one Wink

All done with hands, records and a couple of technics 1210's

Kao-Tic Harmonies - A Derrick may Retrospective

Love him or hate him , he is responsible for some of the most emotive , groundbreaking music we now come to know as Techno.

A couple of hours of my favourite bits….

The mix is here - http://soundcloud.com/placid_88

Done in one take on 2 technics 1210s..  possibly with this one I should have planned a couple of mixes, they go way out of time, reverse edits etc…. but apart from the odd hairy moment its not too bad….

oh and for the spotters.  Model 500  info world is on there.  On my 12 it says wanderer mixed by Mayday..so I went with that..  and I don't think I need to make excuses to put it on the mix.. 

I will do a tracklist after the weekend, but feel free to add comments.

Hope you enjoy it

ive put a link on my comments... 
30  Food for your Ears / Hijackers' Tunes and Mixes / From my Mind to Yours - a Plus 8 mix on: March 02, 2012, 09:21:37
back when a certain Mr Hawtin ran a label which, for a number of years simply put out uncompromising techno and acid…..interesting, imaginative and sometimes properly full on, the releases were always interesting….. up until about Plus8050… then the decline into minimal..and then into the circus that is now minus..  but anyway..  here's the stuff I like.. YMMV

The mix is downloadable (for the moment) here…


The usual suspects on here, FUSE, Plastikman, Kenny Larkin, Speedy J, Joey Beltram, and a few others... as usual ill do a tracklist at some point.... If you were into your techno/acid in the early 90's you'll probably know them....
for people that care.. it was done with two 1210's in one hit... for those that don't care..it's 2 hours of music.

Here - http://soundcloud.com/placid_88/deeper-in-orbit

A mix up of mainly deepish house, basically stuff lying around my decks, some new some old... Im not going to post a tracklist immediately, as I think  sometimes its nice not to know what's coming.... I am still amazed that people are not prepared to try a mix without a tracklist as this is about my 350th mix i've put up, so yo kinda know what your going to get even if you dont know the tunes.. anyhooo... if anyone can do a complete tracklist, be my guest

38  Food for your Ears / Hijackers' Tunes and Mixes / The Art of Acid on: December 26, 2011, 17:20:24
Possibly my favourite mix in the realms of acid……  so far

Proper. no nonsense acid house. Some absolute filth on here.

Of course there are a few glitches and botches but when people put 2 minute tracks on badly pressed LP's. they are not going to get nice long blends… 

If you like it please share it, pass it on to fellow acid lovers.

My Early 90s Raving Dayz

This mix pretty much sums up what i was listening to at the clubs and in my house around 90/91.  Thought i'd leave the chicago out (although there wasn't much of it about at that time, no detroit here either) and concentrate mainly on the uk releases which i used to love…  and still do

43  Food for your Ears / Hijackers' Tunes and Mixes / A Midsummer's Night Mix - Much Deepness afoot on: October 03, 2011, 20:27:30
A midsummers Night Mix

because we have such an abysmal summer, the powers that be take pity one week a year and let us enjoy warmth and the feeling of summer that the rest of Europe enjoys for months on end just before the icy snap sets in and condemns us to darkness and cold for the next six months… anyway..recorded on Sept 29th, windows open and was really, quite a pleasant experience…

44  Food for your Ears / Hijackers' Tunes and Mixes / The Techno Monster Mix on: September 02, 2011, 07:51:34
Essentially records which I have but have not yet managed to put into a mix as they are either too fast or too bonkers or a combination of both.

Naturally, my idea of bonkers and yours may vary, but I can only go by my own bonkers induced reality and upload the result.  Looking back, theres only a couple I'd class as full on monsters, but the not so full-on are blooming fast…  oddly enough i still ended up playing them at about -4, the thought of hearing them on 0 or + anything baffles me.. 

anyway  enough warbling..

Yep, frontline doesn't work anymore. We use Advocate - get it from your vet.

this, fleas laugh at frontline, it does nothing.

Advocate is a dewormer as well...

best bet is to get a prescrition, then buy it online...  get a prescription for 2x6 packs or more if you can to make it cost effective..as they will charge you to write a prescription.

47  Food for your Ears / Hijackers' Tunes and Mixes / Mojuba Mix on: August 19, 2011, 07:57:01
Mojuba Record Label

Best described as deep dubby house with occasional forays into deep techno and a smattering of tech house on sublabels a.r.t.less and Wandering.

with a roster of Sven Weisemann, Nick Sole, (label owner Don Williams, Oracy and Stereociti, as well as a few one offs by Chez Damier, Bernard Badie, Marty Bonds and Tyree on Mojuba it is one of the few labels that i own nearly every release of...

Thought I'd stick my favourite releases on one mix so here it is….

You can download it here - http://www.acid-house.net/Placid_Mojuba.mp3

I will post a tracklist over the weekend..

I omitted the Tyree and Reel By Reel on the grounds they had been released on another label… but I put Bernard Badie on there so that kind of thinking doesn't really hold up but it's the best I could come up with…..

Anyway  enjoy the music

50  Food for your Ears / Hijackers' Tunes and Mixes / The Dub Techno Sound of Detroit on: August 04, 2011, 23:15:29
following on from my Berlin mix i thought I'd play some dubby technoey bits from Detroit …mainly consisting of Steven Hitchell, Rod Modell, Mike Huckaby and Octal Industries, it offers, for me, a more refined sound than Berlin,  but just as effective, huge expanses of sound, delays and reverb and basslines,

NB: - This is best heard on a system with bonus oomph.

anyway  enough rambling. here's the tracklist

CV313 - Seconds to Forever - Echospace
DeepChord – hr-01 - Hierophant
Imax - 3am - Octal
Model 500 - Starlight [Soultek's Falling Stars Mix] - Echospace
Convextion - Miranda (Echospace Remixes) - Matrix
DeepChord - DC13 - Deep Chord
CV - Movement - Octal
Mike Huckaby - My Life With the Wave - SYNTH
Deepchord - DC12 - Deep Chord
Octal Industries - Automatik - Transistor Rhythm
Claude Vonstroke - Who's Afraid Of Detroit? [D e e p c h o r d Remix] - Echospace
DeepChord - DC14 - Deep Chord
Mike Huckaby - Radiance - Deep Transportation
cv313 – Dimensional Space - Echospace
Deepchord - Departure - Octal
CV313 - Seconds To Forever (Reshape) - Echospace (meant to play the next track but the record was running out.. hey ho)
DeepChord – Electromagnetic Dowsing - Synth
DeepChord - Vantage Isle - Echospace
DeepChord - Dc13 - Deep Chord

Oh and here's the link - http://www.acid-house.net/DTSDetroit.mp3 (available from midnight 04/08/11)

I make no apologies for the amount of Deepchord on this mix.

As usual, all done in one hit on 2 x technics  just under 2 hours @ 320 kbps - 275mb
