Thanks to our colleagues at Slices we have been enjoying this vintage Richie Hawtin mix from 1989 this morning. Recorded live on the Detroit radio station Power 96 the mix is decidely old skool by today’s standards, but was (obvioulsy) absolutley cutting edge at that time. Tracks from LFO and Bomb The Bass fit next to long forgotten acid jams and some pretty fierce mixing from the man Hawtin. Hawtin’s recent comments about vinyl and DJ technologies have generated some, erm, pretty lively debate on the internet. However with mixing skills like the ones he he shows on this 23 year old mix, well, we reckon, he can say and do what he likes.
