This live recording comes from a night to remember. During my 80’s Night residency at the pirate themed The Redwood Bar in Downtown LA I would occasionally have guests down. On this night my good friend Kemek was down from San Francisco and dropped a crazy 80’s set done with Ableton software and a peripheral mixing device. (Kemek goes by “The Pocket Calculator” when he plays 80’s music.) He has three tracks going at the same time almost throughout the entire thing with looping beats and all kinds of frenetic mixing and tempo changes. It was a super fun night and the recording still totally holds up today and is a blast to listen to. You might notice that there are 50 tracks in one form or another in 63 minutes! Crazy! The occasional volume drops are from getting on the mic, which was not picked up by the recorder. —Mixmaster Noah Massey
