Erol Alkan

Another Bugged Out Mix / Another Bugged In Selection

The clichés about DJ mixes are well worn. It’s a journey, it’s educating the listener, it’s telling a story. All those descriptions, hackneyed though they may be, apply to Erol Alkan’s new ‘Bugged Out’ mix and ‘Bugged In’ selection, but they don’t come close to capturing the indefinable magic that makes it sing. That comes from the sixth sense all great DJs have, the unconscious force that draws them to the next song, somehow knowing it will fit with the previous one even though it might seem unlikely. Call it musical clairvoyance, seeing into the sonic future. And no-one has the gift more than Alkan.
It’s there from the start on CD1 of this two CD set – one side club-oriented, one aimed at home listening. He opens with the pulsing bass and twangy guitars of ‘To Our Disco Friends’ by Smith N Hack, a track that’s ten years old, but which sounds bang up to date. He follows it with ‘Sensation’ by legendary Chicago house DJ Ron Hardy, then ‘Gridlock’ by In Flagranti. Who else would put those three tracks together, spanning three decades in the process? No-one, that’s who.
