Mr Fire & Mr Ice
Well, in the pressure cooker that is my abode, I finally found the time and space to do a new mix. Next up will be my mix for Modyfier's "Process" series. I'll start digging around for stuff to put in that tomorrow. Anyone familiar with James Ellroy's "LA Quartet" will know where I nicked the title from. "Mr Fire & Mr Ice" refers to two of the principal characters in the first book of the quartet, The Black Dahlia. Mr Fire is Officer Lee Blanchard, a fast-talking, action-oriented man who loves the limelight. Mr Ice is Dwight ‘Bucky’ Bleichert, a cop who avoids confrontations unless he’s forced into action. More of an introvert, it’s only after partnering up with Lee that Bucky becomes a player to be reckoned with within the police department.
Character descriptions cut and pasted from somewhere else.
So there you have it. Don't bother with the Scarlett Johansen - starring film though. Check out the book first.

Constructed, as ever, under duress, at Castle Corey, Haverhill, Suffolk, UK, on two Technics 1210s, two Pioneers CDJ200s and an Allen & Heath Xone:32.
I hope to be making the transition to full-on Serato land soonish, but won't ever be abandoning the more conventional approach.
