No DIY synths, no schematics, no close up photos in this post, but I figure its music so close enough. Found this on Amazon. Even more support for the try-before-you-buy approach to buying music.
Somewhere around 2000, shortly after I broke the lease on the worst apartment ever at 148 Degraw Street in Brooklyn I moved in with my best childhood friend Jamie and his roommate Dan on 7th Ave. A railroad apartment, that was far too small for two people, let alone three, was my home for a couple months before I finally moved out into the amazing but nearly deadly ‘4th & Garfield’.
During that time I was working on a number of projects, drinking more beer than was healthy, and had set up shop in the dining room of their apartment. Jamie and his friend Steve were both DJing down-tempo music at the time and thought a collaboration on a mix blending exceptional vinyl selections with the advancements in software based synthesis and tracking was overdue. Tracks were selected, reselected, mixed, remixed and stitched into a seamless blend of great down-tempo of the time.
RLM was formed, and the Wildlife Mix was forged. Roberts, Langolf, and Marchese: an original formula for a name without doubt. This was a brief collaboration that resulted in the release of one full length mix on CD for circulation to whoever would have it. After all this time I still have a number of CDs in my studio that are collecting dust. Want one? Email me and it’s yours. Or, you can download the .mp3 below. I recently uncovered the track listing…. These are surely out of order but credit is necessary for the original artists.

You can find another copy on Steve’s critically reviewed music blog Scissorkick here. It’s important to add that through this project I was able to get to know Steve much better; a man with astounding knowledge of all walks of music and immense passion for his friends, family, wife, and son. All would be a better person by knowing him.
In October of 2007 Superset created the first “Stash Mix” for Stashmedia. The mix covers 85 tracks from 77 artists in a heavily edited, mixed, remixed and composed mash-up of indie, hip-hop, electronic, techno, rock, dub and downtempo. With music from labels such as Def Jux, Nature Sounds, Bastard Jazz, Sub Pop, Universal, and more, this mix covers a galaxy of sound and attempts to blend styles like peanut butter and apples.
Much Thanks to Mulheres Barbadas for the insanely sick cover art which, reflects the mix’s eclectic tone entirely. Hit their site for a large Hi-Res download.
Further thanks to this project’s Exec Producer, Steve Marchese at Stash for bringing this project together and more thanks to Steven Price, Stash’s editor for making it happen. See Steve Marchese’s exceptional site highlighting some of the best new (and old) records/artists out there: Scissorkick.
Just as a last note, obviously because this is a mix of others work there’s no stripes. (though we did receive permission from the artists included on the mix to release this one).
