Guest MixTAPE: Sean Johnston (Sabres of Paradise / Flashcomm)

You wait ages for a bus, then....

Fresh from posting Heartbeat's mix yesterday, I got an e-mail from one Sean Johnston. Sean, like myself, grew up in Hull, and cut his teeth spinning at the Welly club (I cut my drinking teeth there some years later) before moving to London in the 80s and playing on the Balearic scene with the likes of Justin Robertson and Darren Emerson. Then, as Flash Faction, Sean recorded for Weatherall's Sabres of Paradise imprint and Third Mind records, and founded the short-lived but much-loved techno label Flashcomm in the 90s.

Sadly, Sean has long since hung up his headphones, but he thought me and y'all might like to hear a wee mix he's concocted - no trawl through vintage techno, but rather an up-to-the-minute selection of grubby beauts from Daniel Wang, Cobblestone Jazz, Paul Kalkbrenner and Spirit Catcher, to name a few. Check it out. And cheers, Sean - you may not play out these days, but you clearly haven't lost your taste....

David - Anything that I put up personally is generally reencoded and tagged. Can't speak for the Soft, but if you nag him about he'll be sure to cave in eventually.

Nice job guys. It's cool that you are publishing some other DJs too, and all these interviews. The content has become more varied, I mean.

A bit offtopic -- feel free to check also my mix at:

It mostly contains the tracks you should be familiar with, but I'm particularly interested in your feedback regarding tracks No 10 and 13 -- both are made by my friends and unreleased, so it would sort of a demo testing.
