Introducing: Mix Crate
Today we’ve enabled a bit of new functionality for the Phuture Frequency website, the Mix Crate.
The sole purpose of this is to let you store mixes and shows that you’ve previously loved, or want to check out in the future, directly on the sidebar of the Phuture Frequency website.
To do this, simply expand the sidebar by clicking the menu icon in the top right of the website, and use Facebook to create an account. Once you’ve signed in, simply navigate to a show and click the “Add This Mix To Your Mix Crate” button at the top of the mix description.
You can then manage your Mix Crate in the sidebar of the website.
Us & Us: The Present Situation Is Abstract…
A Motion Mixtape for Phuture Frequency
Transmitting from Mount Vernon, New York, USA
Supplying musical therapy by way of vinyl, CD, cassette, and MP3
The world is more than just a little insane right now. This is just my way of supplying some sanity for whoever needs it. I needed to do this one for me, but here’s hoping that it serves you well.
Autobiographical cuts for me on this one include Jef Gilson’s “1973” and Bullion mediating between The Beach Boys and J Dilla on “I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times.” Feel free to holla back regarding which cuts speak to the situations in your life right about now…

This is my last mix for Phuture Frequency for a while as I’m off on my travels over summer and into autumn. The selection this time out features some of my latest purchases including tracks from Optiv and BTK’s excellent “Blackjack” LP on Virus and Dose’s “Mind The Future” LP on Commercial Suicide. Also in there are tracks from the “Multiverse” EP on Renegade Hardware , two from Fena & Jeopardize on Prox:Ltd and a smasher from Audio on Ram Records. I’ll be back to bring you more Drum & Bass beats towards the end of the year.

I’m not really sure what you call this kind of stuff. It’s garage and house based, but isn’t tilted at the dance floor in that typical sloggy style.
It’s a little too up to be ambient, but it’s got that deep, laid back vibe to it. There’s quite a few vocals in there, but some of these are pure instrumental grooves.
What ever you call it, I’m loving this stuff at the moment. Music that uplifts and makes you smile and dance about the house.
Big ups to Dusky (who I’m a bit late picking up on) and Martyn who LPs feature pretty heavily, and to Andrew Bayer who’s Anjunadeep label is well worth checking out if you’re feeling this vibe.
This is the perfect Summer mix for you lucky buggers in the northern hemisphere who aren’t freezing like I am at the bottom of the planet.
Get out side and play it loud.

This time out it’s a trip back in time with some sounds from 2001/2002. This is a really varied mix taking in a range of styles with liquid, jump up and techstep all thrown into the 70 minute selection. Some of my favourites in this mix are Calibre’s remix of DJ Ink and Dylan’s “Need You”, Twisted Individual’s “Magic Carpet (Bombay Mix)” taken from the Tooled Up LP album sampler, Drumsound & Simon Bassline Smith’s fierce roller “Stigmata” and Universal Project’s dancefloor destroyer “Haunted Dreams”.
