After more than a year in the making, nrk have announced seth troxler has mixed the next edition of the label’s in the lab series. due for release in october, it’s the detroit dandy’s second official mix cd following on from his boogybytes effort in february 2010. this time, though, the visionquest man has been allowed to stretch his legs over two cds.

he says… "my interpretation of the concept behind the lab series was to present ideas like a scientist working in some secret base off the cost of myanmar.... when night talk with spider monkeys has just gone too far, what do you do, whatʼs there left to do? i recorded this mix live using just decks and mixer (no ableton) in my friendʼs bedroom, which for many djs is their very own domestic lab. “

“disc one for me is somewhat of a straightforward mix of contemporary and classic house, a summary of my style, a little clip from this point in time, what iʼm know for and how i tend to present ideas when iʼm touring. for disc two i really wanted to showcase my interest in the wider landscape of electronic music outside of what i do in a club. i think this mix embodies that idea, not ableton-perfect, a little rough around the edges but interesting and human.."

having had a sneak preview i can tell you it’s worth getting excited about.... drifting through styles with purpose and groove, it smoothly swells and churns, builds and drops with a lively charisma. the second disc is more un-hinged and takes in intricate, broody sounds, otherworldly samples and weaves a tight, hypnotic thread from start to finish.

unlike has become the norm for many producers when tasked with compiling a mix, seth reaches far into his record bag throughout, calling on names from myriad scenes and not just his own. the results, typically, are beguiling…www.teshno.com
