Ada's debut single “blindhouse” (areal 10) got us all hot under the collar when it was released way back in 2002 - an exquisite blend of woozy pads and hypnotic bass licks ( as heard on triple r's doubly recommended mix cd 'friends'.
Her latest foray is a mixtape cum / semi greatest hits entitled 'adaptations', taking in some of her finest original tracks, remixes and rerubs of her own stuff, including michael mayer & tobias thomas's spangly euphoric take on her yeah yeah yeahs cover of 'maps'. Following last week's awesome exercise one exclusive mix for us, we're honoured now to have a mix from the great lady also. Truly taking our concept of skirting the well trodden boompity boom that lines vast swathes of the bloggosphere to her chest and running for the hills, we're thrilled to see tracks from radiohead, bjork, boards of canada, busta rhymes and yes luscious jackson (! - an allez-allez first for them) amongst her many choice selections.
