January marked the beginning of Minus Records' 10-Year Anniversary doings, when Richie Hawtin announced the commencement of 10 weeks of silence. Once the quiet passed, a WMC appearance followed, as well as the kick-off of the CONTAKT tour, in which a strange cube is the centerpiece.
"It only seems like yesterday (1990) that John Acquaviva and I were two kids with a dream of releasing our first record on our own credit card funded label Plus 8," Hawtin reminisces.
With that spirit in mind, he and his label commissioned New York-based producer Ambivalent and the über-prolific JPLS to compile an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast that showcases the history of Minus. The two brought in everything from the label's inaugural release by Plastikman to later works by the likes of Troy Pierce and Matthew Dear under his False moniker.
