crackling black

over the last few weeks i've (as has bec) become a bit obsessive with our collection of vinyl records, actively putting them into action again. i've never stopped buying vinyl records, but i've never been a huge purchaser of them (compared to my intake of cds) but i've been developing a renewed soft spot for them recently. anyway, i had an idea to blend some newer 12" releases i've bought with some really old records and some in between ones, so this mix has grown out of that idea. all of the tracks are taken from vinyl versions in our collection, a fair portion of which have never been released on cd or digitally. some are tracks released and bought this year, some are from the 70s and bought this year, others are somewhere in between and purchased somewhere in between. there's a copy of kraftwerk's radioactivity which dave bought me when his family spent a year living in france, some classic late 80s/early 90s dance tracks, though i've headed for the more obscure remix versions, through to brand new releases from my new favourite label, 100% silk. and, as a feature bonus, the very first track you hear is actually from an early 80s christian aerobics record - courtesy of bec's mysterious past and possibly the strangest thing we have in our collection. of course it fits in perfectly here.
