A piece of underground Chicago history!
Vinny Divine (Vincent Long) was a member of The Children and Laurent X and used to have a radio show on WNUR on Monday nights, I think. Anyway, a little known fact was that he was one of Symbols & Instruments first engineers and helped man the boards during the recording of "Science Of Numbers" for our KMS/Network EP. He was also a resident DJ at the Factory and other spots around town along with being one of "The Children" and I believe one of the "Endless Pokers" as well. This was recorded from the radio while I was still in high school and I listened to this mix nonstop for about a year 'cause it's got some goodies on it. My personal fav being the unreleased "I Can't Turn Around" demo he mixed into Virgo Trax. Also making appearances are Steve "Work That Mutherfucker" Poindexter and Greg "The Master". Learn it.
Here's the first 1.5hrs of the set from Saturday. Though mixing in a basement of a frat house in West Philly wasn't my initial idea of a good time, it soon turned from "Alright, let's just get through this..." to "Hot damn! This is kind of jumping!". Mixing in some new stuff, some classics and some of what I consider "DC Favs", I rather liked this session. I hope that you do too.
After playing Indianapolis on Thursday, Albuquerque on Friday, and LA on Saturday, I hightailed it back to Chicago to play my residency on Sunday with Michael Serafini & Honey Dijon. In between doing shots, getting into conversations with random friends & drop-ins, having my ass pinched, doing high kicks with Honey, taking pictures with folks in the booth, a crazy snow machine, general seasonal tomfoolery and other shenanigans, I managed to mix a little. Let's do it all again next year!
