Three is a mainstay in the worldwide underground scene, making regular appearances at New York’s Output, London’s Fabric, Japan’s Labyrinth Festival, and worldwide Crosstown Rebels Get Lost events. He’s also started a new label, Hallucienda, hot on the heels of dissolving his renowned Hallucination Limited imprint. With such a long list of accolades, we had to ask the man himself what he was spinning in the lab these days, and he has graciously answered us by curating this week’s Dive Into The Deep.
Garnier – Psyche Delia (Original Mix) [MCDE]
I am a big fan of Mr. Garnier. Simply put, this is Laurent being Laurent. Just a fantastic cut and the Whistle For Frankie AA side is something special, too.
Octo Octa – Through The Haze (Original Mix) [Argot]
Been following this wicked producer mostly on the LA-based 100% Silk label. This time he drops one on the excellent Chicago-based Argot. Moody, raw and psychedelic. I never tire of records like this.
Pittsburgh Track Authority – Obverse (Original Mix) [Work Them]
I was born in Pittsburgh so it’s been cool to see this collective coming up putting out great records. Vintage-sounding day party kind of jam that brings to mind one of my favorite records: Balil – “3/4 Heart” and classic gems like Playtime Tunes – “The Shaker Song”.
Dimitri From Amsterdam – Detroit Summer (San Proper Vocal Mix) [Planet E]
San Proper is on a tear of late. His recent dOP remix and this thing are absolutely ace. Planet E is on fire, as well.
Caribou – Our Love (Original Mix) [City Slang]
For me, this is full-on “reach for the lasers” warehouse goodness. So much fun.
MIX OF THE WEEK: Three Live @ Robot Heart, Burning Man 2012
I’m heading out to Burning Man this year so I put this on today and it’s put me in a great mood. Robot Heart is one of the more unique DJ experiences in the world, both as a dancer and a DJ. This recording was from the last hour or so of night time leading up to sunrise, the morning after “the burn”.
