I just wanted to do a quick post about “Blowing Up the Workshop“, which is a really good site / mix series that has been developing overthe last year. It kind of links into the “outsider dance” movement that people have been very excited about (LIES and PAN being the two obvious examples), but I think the way this project is exploring these connections could be a little bit different. I’m still working my way through the mixes, but it seems like it is headed in an interesting direction. The latest one is a cool live techno workout from Shaun O’Sullivan, who put out a very strong EP last year on WT Records. This track almost feels like a cross between Dozzy and Dundov:
Continuing on this tangent, I’m a bit surprised WT Records hasn’t been getting more attention, they’ve been putting out some interesting stuff. I’d suggest exploring their bandcamp page. WT have just released a few DJ Muscle EPs, which has got an interesting mix of tracks, of which is probably the strongest:
Willie Burns is doing WT, and he’s recently done a very enjoyable mix for electronique.it, which is also worth checking.
