Welcome to the second in a series of live and studio recorded DJ mixes, interviews and video Podcasts, featuring Ultraplay DJ's and special guests.
The follow-up to Jack Schidt's infamous mix, UP01, this second Ultraplay podcast by Darren C celebrates it's second birthday and winter season at Café 1001 in East London's Brick Lane.
You'd expect a sunday techno afterhour mix to be a comfy, laid-back affair but this comes in big fluffy socks with a steaming booze-laced hot-chocolate. From the outset, Ultraplay's synonymous dubby rhythms carry haunting plush velvet techno, the kind that takes you way into the woods and leaves you there, such as Danton Eeprom's 'Wings of Death'. A work of art in it's own right but Darren manages to continue and build upon it's misty vibe and take things much deeper down the path, conjuring up an ambient winter mix that sends shivers down your spine before wrapping you in fur. Just the thing as night draws in, this mix will see you through the long dark, months to come.
Recorded live at Ultraplay, Sunday 28th October 2007 @Cafe 1001, Brick Lane, London.
