FACT mix 169 is by James Ruskin.
And so we come to the James Ruskin FACT mix. Powering through a whopping 42 tracks in a lean one and three quarter hours, it’s a real techno masterclass, rhythmically diverse, taking in tracks from Ruskin himself as well as contemporary like minds such as Marcel Dettmann, DVS1, Mark Broom, Ben Klock, Traversable Wormhole, Mike Dehnert, Mark Broom and Peter Van Hoesen. There’s a wealth of new and as yet unreleased material featuews, including Ruskin’s remix of Planetary Assault Systems’ ‘GT’ and a new O/V/R, plus sure shots from Detroit dons Jeff Mills, Rob Hood, Kenny Larkin and Dopplereffekt, upfront steppers from Scuba and Al Tourettes, and classics from Aphex Twin, Balil and Underground Resistance. In a word: barnstorming. If, come the one-hour mark, you’re not punching the air or at least biting your lip in appreciation, then you can have all your money back.
