MIX RETROSPECTIVE – 2015 COLLEEN VINYL FACTORY MIX + CAPTAIN OF NONE PEDAL SETUP

January 10, 2021 § Leave a comment

When I was invited to submit a 100% vinyl mix for Vinyl Factory in 2015, I knew it’d be the perfect occasion “to go back over some favourites that I can connect to very specific periods of my life in terms of what I was listening to and where I was at in my own music-making. Some of them I discovered in the past few years, but I would like to tell you about five songs that are particularly relevant to the birth of my Colleen project back in the early 2000s.”

Read my musings on the following songs here at Vinyl Factory: Holger Czukay “Boat-Woman Song” which acts like a connecting thread throughout the mix, Wu-Tang Clan “Bells of War”, Autechre “Cipater”, Mulatu Astatke “Wubit”, Can “Vitamin C”.

Also, as you’ve probably noticed, this mix retrospective which is nearing its end also served as a live show retrospective of sorts. Here is my pedal setup in all its Captain of None glory with its 3 different sampling points.
