In 1995 a few friends and I opened an ambient club in Cape Town called The Gel. I thought it would be an interesting experiment to play a Gel set in 2021. What would I do given the 25 odd years that have passed? Given the growth of my record collection and the evolution of my tastes, how would it be different?
To capture what The Gel was all about, I decided to do a mix for this one. I pulled out about 100 records, old and new, that have a "Gel sensibility" and just fashioned a mix, warts and all.
