[Mixed Up Monday: Obsolete Units + RÁDIO RUÍDO]

Sticking with the experimental DJ thread from yesterday’s post, here is an insane mix from Paul Haney aka Rust Worship of Brooklyn label Obsolete Units.

This 4-part, two-and-half-hour long mix was posted by the  x>Triangulation>x blog, a site that is chalk full of DJ mixes from another dimension.

You can check out the tracklist below to get a feel for the weirdness that awaits you, but the records played only serve as starting points. There’s a lot of distortion, manipulation, etc. added on top of these mixes to create a pretty seamless sonic adventure.

You can also check out Rust Worship’s recent release on Albany’s Tape Drift label here (3rd release down).
