Happy New Year!
I bless 2011 to be a great year for music and music-bloggers everywhere.

I bought this CDi single from Chicago back in 1989, when I was a freshman in college. The disc itself had a gold surface. The tracks on this CDi were exactly the same as the standard release but with the video of Headhunter included in it.

I still love all three tracks on this CDi-single release because of their industrial-sounding stabbing basslines. All the basslines are programmed tightly with a midi sequencer. The sounds of the rolling bassline in Headhunter (at least to my ears) are processed heavily through a reverb effect. Headhunter became the band’s first club hit.  Welcome To Paradise also has industrial rolling/stabbing basslines but without vocals. Instead, the band uses make heavy-use of many voice clips and sound-bytes sampled from various American evangelists (possibly sampled from television and/or video recordings).

Only this time I was blessed to do quick EQing, compressing, reverbing and simple mastering to the overall sound to an acceptable & reasonable state of being compatible to the 12st Century human ears. I could have mastered Electro-15 so clean like a digital CD-master, without anybody else being able to tell the difference between whether the recording coming from a vinyl or not.

dj veronica mix sets music

When I came back from Whistler, I put this mix together one evening over a glass of wine while my little dog Hana watched me curiously, and occasionally jumping up for me to lift her up and do a little dance with her. Now this is something that I used to do just about every month back in the 90s, and I have released many CDs in the past, but for some reason, which to this date I cannot explain, I have not made a CD in five years.
