This mix comes from the blurry twilight of new year’s eve, during the witching hour twixt past and future. We were drafted in to play a set at the Sindicato de Circulación Ferroviario and Sindicato del Colectivo de Maquinistas de Metro’s annual shindig in Atocha, both being the local train union which we hooked up through Chris’ dad’s Red Clydeside connections. The plan was laid out. A 28 hour back to back mix. 12:00 December 31st to 16:00 January 1st. An hour for each metro station on the circular line 6 here in Madrid with the sweaty closeness, the blacked windows and would-be liaisons mapped out to a beat. Sadly, due to rolling strikes between the municipal electricity workers amalgam, the collective society of light technicians and our sound guy raising the placard against his corrupt employers (We Forfeit Ltd) we only managed to record one hour of the day-plus marathon.
Chris starts our metro journey and takes us straight into the tunnels. Plunging his train of tracks into flickering darkness, Cosmo Vitelli’s superb remake of Andrew Claristidge’s “And Now You Dance” careens headlong into Benedikt Frey before the lights rise for Valencia’s very own Daniel Kyo. We’re slipping back into the shadows with Mick Wills and his claustrophobic edit of Das Geschwader on Arma, chugging along to the weaving grooves of Caltrop’s “Lenny” until the ultra-bright bars of the business district. Suits, briefcases and mirror shades from New York’s Wall $treet in the synth stabbing splendor of Vercetti Technicolor’s remix of “Victim.”
Carriage doors crunch open, allowing Robbie and Lame´s 1985 track “You’ve Got The Night” on. Doors close and we’re swaying to Machinegewehr after spotting “A Girl You Know” in the next carriage up when darkness envelopes as we enter into the hazy shadows of Dynamite Winter Palace’s “Romance.” The light comes up, bodies fizz past the window as we enter the station. Passengers untangle themselves from each other and eyes meet in the sensual “Cruel Game” for Nouvelle Phénomène before the clunk of metal and we’re off again; whizzing through the subterranean channels of Timothy J. Fairplay and Garofano Rosso.
It was around the hour mark that our sound lad said no more and took to the picket line. We’re not sure exactly at what point of the 28 hours this was recorded but ya’ get the idea. Shouts to Otto @ Bordello and Nico in Nueva York! ¡Feliz año! – WE FORFEIT.
