Peaking Lights Remix

100% Silk are out in force to remix Peaking Lights' adored '936' LP. One of the year's most nattered about names, Ital refits 'Marshmellow Yellow' with a struttin' Mr. Soft groove, all spongy bass bumps and refracted melody, while Xander Harris views 'Birds Of Paradise' as a sludgy piece of Balearic baroque with spy-eyed arpeggios. Best of all is Innergaze's baggy acid re-tweak of 'Shines For U', full of lip-smacking MDMA charm, and Cuticle make a welcome return to the label with the seeping, sideways Chicago revision of 'Tiger Eyes'. Perfectly trippy.

Mixes, Fun, Etc

Here's a mix I did inspired by my friend Angeliska in honor of the theme she chose for her monthly dark party, Exquisite Corpse. Exquisite Corpse is on the first Thursday of every month at Swan Dive here in Austin, TX. If you live here in Austin, please come out and celebrate all things weird, dark, and dada. The theme for Exquisite Corpse held last night was Teen Goth and it was truly a lot of fun. Check this awesome post from Angeliska for her musings on the subject. Be sure to check out the rest of her site for her amazing poetry, great photos, and dark, fun wit. The ever wonderful Devaki Knowles (and finance/ collaborator with Xander Harris) was there to capture the event with her amazing photography at Swan Dive, a place where I moonlight behind the bar from time to time for extra cash.
