The days are getting shorter here in the northern hemisphere which is good in a way. I'll be forced to get off of the beach, out of the lake and cut my outdoor afternoon nap short. I can finally get serious about some of the important projects that I've been meaning to get under way. Like I have a bunch of video tutorials for actors to learn various accents. I've never been good at picking up languages so I figure that learning an accent is almost as good. It'll be cool to switch to a crazy accent whenever needed. I'm sure it will come in handy some time, or at least be good for telephone pranks.

I've been paying close attention to the electro blogs lately and according to the most astute analysts we are currently in an 'electro recession.' I can't help but agree. The most interesting tracks coming out these days are heavy tech rollers like Dubfire's remix of Radio Slave's "Grindhouse" (59:23 in the mix), indie vocal remixes like Kasper Bjorke's "Doesn't Matter" feat. Tomboy (38:20), and classic styled tracks that bring back memories of the golden age of electronic music like Runaway's "Brooklyn Club Jam" (52:05) and the Herz Aus Holz mix of Kollektiv Turmstrasse's "Holunderbaum" (80:50).

This one is a mix-heavy affair, and was inspired by my old disco 7"s from when I was a kid. If I hadn't listened to those tracks thousands of times during my formative years I'd be a different person today.
