DJ Skirt - Wax Works Mix 05
The next Wax Works mix is here and this time it's coming straight outa Birmingham, from Horizontal Ground's DJ Skirt. Skirt first came to my attention with her record Horizontal Ground 07 and with her being the first artist on the label not to be anonymous it made things slightly easier when looking to get in touch. Unfortunately we weren't the only ones after a mix and as such it has taken about 1 year to finally get it, but it was most definitely worth the wait.
Skirt has delivered an absolutely quality mix that is 1 hour of raw, purist techno that just makes you want to go out - there's no boring mechanical perfection here, no overkill effects, just proper good tunes. I love the fact that you can hear the vinyl going slightly out and back in, I think it really adds to the vibe & tension of the set, coupled with the tune selection and the fact she drops 'speak to me', it's just superb.
In a nut shell, this is a serious fucking techno mix. All on vinyl and representing Birmingham.
