Late 1986 I bought a ‘Midi Set’: a turntable, radio and double cassette deck in one.¬†This felt like a real instrument, a real studio! This set-up made remixing music and sounds much easier¬†(so called ‘pause tapes‘). So it was time for a new challenge. Together with my good friend Maurice I worked on a 1987 year mix, blending the main hit singles from 1987 together into one giant collage. We started in December of 1986 and stopped in the summer of 1987.

Mixing in the beat or making ‘good sounding, nice music’ was not our goal. We were inspired by the alienating, intriguing effect of remixed and repetitive sounds. Expression, creating something new and producing an overwelming stream of unheard, remixed sounds was our mission.
