The 104th Avenue Red Podcast comes from Paul Rimbaud, a true deep house/techno/electro collector and DJ from Blackheath, South London. In the summer of last year, Paul was busily setting up his own Distant Worlds label, launching with the "Renegade EP" coming from that ever-increasingly prolific analog synth warrior from Sheffield, John Shima. We are told the label will be sure to feature more works from friends of Avenue Red in the coming months so keep a look out! Here Mr. Rimbaud lays down a stellar, driving mix of magical, shiny techno & electro sounds that give us a looking glass into his unique, intricate vision for this promising-looking young label. "I started buying records in 1992 and haven't stopped since. I schooled myself in the hardcore/jungle techno scene and discovered the techno scene through that, searching out the originals of the tunes that were being sampled by the likes of LTJ Bukem and DJ Crystl. The thread that held these genres together for me were the soundscapes. The emotion/dread/foreboding/elation that can be transmitted through pads and synths, through these little machines becomes transcendent. Often based around basic melodies, aligned with simple chord progressions, the whole becomes greater than the sum of it's parts. For this mix I wanted to concentrate specifically on the sounds of the synths, the pads and atmospherics; the way they would layer and interact with each other as opposed to any kind of rhythmic theme. As such, there are tracks from both sides of the millennium featured, many personal favourites amongst them. I really hope you enjoy listening. Recorded with an audience of one (the cat) in Blackheath, South London on a Thursday afternoon in October."
