Globus Mix Vol. 5: Letsallmakemistakes
Originally released in 2000, now repressed. The simple story behind this compilation project is to unite the finest minimalistic and most sophisticated music in techno/house today. Curator Matthew Herbert expands: "The title says it all. I'm tired of a perfect universe where DJs feed the latest records into a computer and perfectly beat-match them. I'm human, I'm flawed and was never supposed to be a DJ. That said, I have played about 300 DJ gigs in the last 4 years, in all sorts of amazing places, from Russia to Australia to Iceland. Increasingly people are wanting to hear new things on the dancefloor and consequently going crazy over the wobbly stuff. And this CD is supposed to be those tunes: From the consistently-overlooked brilliance of Green Velvet to the structurally-challenged records from Berlin. This really is my chance to play those records that make people either scream or leave dancefloors. This is what I think electronic music is about, challenging conventions, trying to make people dance to ever-increasingly weird sounds and rhythms. You have a captive audience, a big sound system and a Spanish-strength vodka and tonic. In the words of Samuel Beckett: fail again, fail better."
