Words + Mix RICHARD SMITH

Here’s a short mix I did with some favs of mine: the icy emptiness of Ende Shneafliet; Martyn Ware going wild on his drum machines; the deranged, ill of head, Bradbury, running FX; Conrad Schnitzler getting his pop on; Gilberto Gil squeezing in, hoping nobody notices he’s come to the wrong party; No UFO’s ushering in Richie Hawtin back when he was actually good; and then Der Plan easing out with the uneasiness…
