Get Lost mixed by Damian Lazarus and Matthew Styles
Get Lost. No, that's not a command. Rather it's the title of a two CD mix (out NOW) by Damian Lazarus and Matthew Styles. If the names are unfamiliar, these are the men behind the Crosstown Rebels label (responsible for putting out Pier Bucci's Familia, one of my favourite albums of last year).
From the PR release:
Get Lost is a deep and tripped out fusion of mighty mastercuts, techno toys and special songs carefully excavated from the electronic underground. Featuring exclusive new Rebel releases from Mlle Caro, Naum, Ost & Kjex and DJ Koze, Get Lost offers up new angles and fresh experiences for both the head and the feet. Disc 1 is a wonderfully twisted mix for the dancefloor while CD2 spreads its wonky wings even wider…
The incredible painted artwork for the double album has been created by LA based artist, Natalia Fabia. Glasses filled with illuminous liquids, ladies holding weasels and octopus haircuts are just some of the weird and wonderful images to be found on the booklet and sleeves.
Lazarus and Styles mixed both CDs together having spent the best part of six months compiling its awesome 29 tracks.
This is the first mix album from Damian Lazarus in 2006. Since last year's Rebel Futurism, and Suck My Deck compilation releases, he has extensively toured North and South America, Australia and Japan and is continually building a firm following of underground techno supporters and ravers across Europe and beyond. He currently shares a residency with Kompakt's Michael Mayer at Stink in London and will this year once again hold fort inside at Ibiza's DC10. His Other Side London compilation is released in May.
As label manager at Crosstown Rebels, Matthew Styles has up till now been the secret weapon in the Rebels DJ team armoury. After receiving critical acclaim for the See You @ The Party CD on Music For Freaks, Matthew has created a buzz and a great deal of love for his exceptional DJ sets at some of the world's coolest clubs, particularly the Panorama Bar and WMF in Berlin, Pulp in Paris and Fabric in London. Matthew is a DJ and producer on the rise.
