Chicago veteran DJ and CVU favorite Miguel Martin, AKA Trancid, has posted a new mix entitled Synth Complex. The new wave-laced and electro-set release features cuts from the likes of Miss Kitten, White Lies, and Joy Division, and marks, according to Martin, “(The) first time in YEARS that I have recorded a mix at a sub-130 bpm level.” In sending the mix to CVU, the Chicago scene staple supplied the following update.
So, 2011 is marking the beginning of my new solo stuff, post-(Dark Wave Disco). What I’m going to start doing in the next month is getting together with my (friend) Frank from Echonine and begin doing remix work and eventually original material, just more for personal satisfaction and taking things to another level. Our first remix is going to be a track called No Health from this band out of California called The New Division. I will be going under the new production name of “Androides Paranoide” I even have a new URL registered for it. http://androidesparanoide.com
