Avenue Red was started in July 2013 with the intention of creating a good, steady platform for passionate music collectors, DJ's, artists and label owners who we found to have something special on their music pages, yet were flying far below the radar of mainstream press and hype. We are here to showcase the good, friendly people who we find not to be trying to play some stealthy game of music scene politics with hidden agendas, gimmicks, sideshow fads or any other holographic projections of inflated egos. Instead, we aim to showcase those content with their low underground profile - tasteful diggers and purveyors dedicated to filtering wheat from chaff to distill the sweetest, most enjoyable and educational mixtapes. In these 5 years to date Avenue Red has featured a diverse range of 86 talented DJ's/artists from around the world, from Russia to the USA and from Peru to the UK. Thanks to all of you for contributing such great works over these years! To celebrate this milestone we will be releasing 5 separate mixtapes in a mini-series over the coming weeks, which will draw focus on our most frequent and outstanding contributors so far. To get this party started we welcome the magical master technician from Istanbul... step up Rubsilent!! "My path crossed with Alec's and his Avenue Red podcast series 3 years ago after exchanging messages via Soundcloud over the Relief Records tribute mix that I recorded in early 00's and shared online after recovering the recording from a MiniDisc. Rest is history... When it comes to electronic music I believe in no barriers between the genres, which comes from my being hooked on this approach in the 90's with the likes of Laurent Garnier and Derrick May as role models. I have recorded five mixes over the years for Avenue Red and this is my 6th contribution. Some may lean towards a certain genre but in order to entertain myself first I tried telling different stories on each session by travelling thorough different moods and styles. This 5th year anniversary contribution is reflecting a more positive, house-y side of me here. Lots of USA house from places like Chicago, Detroit as well as European sounds from past and present... I was recently reunited with a box of 50 of my records after 11 years apart (all from my time living in Chicago), so naturally I was keen to drop some of those records in this session. I'm humbled to be asked to return back to Avenue Red with this special 5th year anniversary selection. Many thanks to Alec for his hard work and to all the listeners throughout the years. Happy Birthday Avenue Red! Many happy returns."
