Alva Noto on 45

Alva Noto on 45

Chart positions

This show was 10th in the global minimal chart and 26th in the global electro chart.

When I was a teenager there was a popular series of hit records under the umbrella title of Stars on 45, where popular songs would be combined into a medley, with a common beat and tempo underneath. It was like a kind of greatest hits of a certain artist or style of music. It was a novel and playful idea, and in conversation with my old friend Carsten Nicolai many years ago I joked about making one for him. So, almost two decades later, here’s the first of a series of special mixes I’m putting together for fun.

This mix exclusively features only the music of Alva Noto (Carsten Nicolai) and a little drum machine. The mix was created entirely live using Native Instruments Traktor and Traktor Kontrol S2 and nothing else. What you hear is what happened in real time.
