X-MIX DVD Collection II
Continuing to combine visuals from imaginative digital animators with a soundtrack by electronic dance music’s leading artists and DJs, the X-Mix series had by the mid-90s become continental clubland’s visual materials of choice.
As the series matured, the animations began moving from abstraction into stand-alone virtual landscapes. Beyond The Heavens, to a mix of classic groovy techno sculpted by the UK’s Dave Angel, had a futuristic, almost sinister atmosphere. It includes crucial tunes by Kenny Larkin, Sun Electric, Josh Wink, Ian Pooley and Dave Angel himself.
Digital deserts and industries of the imagination were explored on Wildstyle, where the sounds were provided by Munich’s DJ Hell – a decade of underground techno and house, fashioned into one long mix and including crucial tracks such as Bernard Badie’s Can You Feel It, Bobby Konders’ Let There be House and Phortune’s Can You Feel The Bass.
The Electronic Storm supplied further flights of computer-animated fancy – digital worlds orchestrated to a long, morphing mix from The Shamen’s Mr C. Both a voyage into virtuality and a journey into the spirit of the beat. ‘It’s about human evolution,’ said Mr C.
36 underground dance classics. 3 individual mixes from international DJs. Hours of cutting-edge computer animation.
