Mr Blue – Darkest Star Set


It’s been a while since i’ve featured a no-holds-barred, no genre defined, all-star line-up kinda mix. The kind of mix that everyone want’s to put together every now and then – an advanced ‘favourite’ playlist if you like. A bunch of classic tracks that instead of withering away on the left-hand side of iTunes, are instead expertly curated and mixed to form an enjoyable two-hour journey.

Glen Johnson aka Mr Blue has picked some stunning tracks for this mix and there’s some really nice transitions too – especially Boards of Canada into Vector Lovers…

  1. Thanks to ASIP for letting me get some air time. This site is a massive inspiration and this mix probably wouldn’t have come about had I not listened to all the material here.

    I’ve tried to mash up a few classics and multiple genres to give you an idea of my diverse interests and long love affair with all things electro and spacious.

    The little known Grid remix of Marc Almond at the end is an absolutely epic track considering it’s over 20 years old. (1990) and if you listen carefully I swear you can hear the beginnings of way out wests squelch and rumble bass that appeared some 6-7 years later. Amazing track.

    Big thanks to Tympanik records for the range of awesome stuff popping up through that label and keeping CD’s alive at an affordable price.

    Love to hear what you all think of this or how it made you feel.

    Please give it the full time it deserves in a comfortable place.

    Glen

  2. I’d love to take a listen but I’m unable to download it. I tried registering on the linked site last night but I’ve yet to receive an e-mail with a password to log in with. Anyone else have that issue?

  3. HI Mike, That’s odd. You don’t need to register – it’s free to download. If anyone else has same issue I’ll see about moving it. Mr. Blue (Glen)
