Sublight: “The 80’s be Torching your Home” DJ set

Blazing 80’s, mostly because I seem to have changed my studio setup in 2007 and the input gain was way too high. There’s still some delicate synth-pop in there somewhere…?

Sublight: “Dark Waters” Classic DJ set

In choice of music, as well as actual content, a lot of the vestiges of my early 90’s addiction to industrial remained evident. Apart from the usual suspects of the scene at the time, like artists on Chicago’s fabled Wax Trax! records and the many amazing bands and labels closer to home in Canada, there was also darker ambient and experimental content, all of which melded into a stew of dark and hard beats, resulting in an immediate affiliation with hard techno and dark, heavy trance. At the time, Toronto, and all of southern Ontario, were pushing out an amazing amount of home-made content in that range (Plus8, DOVe), and it was this time when I started getting beyond my growing CD collection, and started to buy vinyl. Expensive and hard to play at the time with an old belt-drive turntable with no tempo adjustment on it, it was still hard to pass up what I was finding. Equally, having collected so much Wax Trax, I was becoming immersed in their Warp reissues. You can hear the results.

Sublight: “Take a Step Back…” Classic DJ set

How it all began for Sublight. The first side of the first mixtape. A transition from a guy fade-mixing industrial music in dodgy goth clubs to a multi-decade long addiction to playing electronic music.
