Andrew Weatherall


Yet another example of how Andrew Weatherall was consistently able to absorb the best of what was modish in underground club culture at any given time, make it completely his own, and contextualise it in much longer, deeper sonic currents. In the case of this 2004 mix, it’s shot through with the continental European sounds that joined the aftermath of electroclash, glitchy minimal techno and electrohouse: Steve Bug, Ricardo Villalobos, Robag Wruhme, John Tejada, Marc Romboy and so forth. But starting the mix off with older postpunk and electro, and ending it with Weatherall’s Two Lone Swordsmen remixing Villalobos in goth style, followed by a Joy Division cover by old friend David Harrow, puts all of that stuff in a whole different frame to usual, and essentially turns it into Weatherall music.
