Once upon a time, I helped run a website devoted to the exposure of Detroit-influenced techno and beyond. mp313 artists were all contributors to the [313] or [313TechKnow] email lists. Over time the project lost momentum so I consolidated my efforts here. In order to mix mp3s, I burned select songs to CD, and mixed them using a standard DJ mixer and the Denon-2000F dual pitch adjustable CD players. These things were the first commercially-available pitch-adjustable CD players, so they aren’t anywhere near as flexible as todays behemoths. Point being, this wasn’t point & click mixing, but it wasn’t as hands-on as todays CD mixes can be. At any rate, the object of the mix was to provide an introduction to the mp313 roster, and display our music in a mixed format, as it was intended. Today it’s a memento of a community that did things their own way, with no interest but to share their music, who met and cooperated online before they’d ever met in person.

2020 note: all mixes taken down for now to re-post at higher bitrate on Mixcloud in due course. If you’re at all keen for me to do this, please let me know and I will try and get anything specific you want to hear moved over ASAP.
