Awkward Movements Sessions #47 – dyLAB

Proper stoked to have dyLAB stepping up once more for Awk Mo Sessions. He was first with us about thirty shows ago, for #18 where he served up a load of his own bits and acid based gems we’d not heard, that ping-ponged all over the shop for a pretty crazy leftfield mix and selection. This time he’s revisited his influences and possibly the reason behind him being an analogue based, acid god in the modern scene. He’s holding it down big time for the sounds he loves, doing it better than most others out there, and with these tracks representing his record collection you can see how he ended up that way.

Acid Box Blues remains one of our favourite hang outs, and the best place to keep up to date not only with dyLAB’s movements but the underground scene he represents in general. There’s often free mixes, tracks, analogue gear advice and sample packs from classic machines thrown up there, I’d definitely recommend checking it out. Nice that his originals are getting plays out more and more and that he’s thrown himself back in to the live scene in Melbourne, really looking forward to checking out his set up (recently moved and improved) when next over that way.

One of our favourite from the crew of rotating guests -dyLAB – steps in for Awkward Movements Sessions once more. Based in Melbourne, the producer / drummer is holding it down for the analogue acid bass on a daily basis and as always has caught us off guard with his selections.

Might as well rename this “the-most-important-records-you-may-not-know-about-mix”, with the 50 minute session boasting a beautiful structure. Starting off with what’s considered the first ever 303 driven acid house joint and Chicago classics, through breakbeat driven rave, to the first statement of intent from 4Hero, early Hawtin into jungle / dnb through Chicago juke with the likes of Traxman and Rashad and clsosing off with Underground Resistance and one of the biggest tunes of the 90s.

Big ups to the man, this is a proper schooling.
