716 Exclusive Mix – Kenneth James Gibson : One drunken sailor’s curse from deep psychosis introducing past levels of musical existence Mix
16.01.11 - Guillaume
1) 8 Frozen Modules
I discovered him 10 years ago with this special live he made on Los Angeles based internet radio dublab. This thing just blowed my mind. And still does today. At the time you had many producers abusing cut effects and crazy edits in a AFX vein but without any groove.
What I love with this one, it never loses the groove, it’s a crazy mental boogie shit with ups and down like a live in a real party.
I remember describing it to friends as « an outdoor barbecue-rave taking place in a L.A backyard by a sunny afternoon. »
You can hear Frosty from dublab radio and Adventure Time project (with Dadedelus) making the annoucement in the beginning.
2) Bells Garden
Then I followed Kenneth under his other alias – and other sounds too, as dubLoner and [a]pendics.shuffle.
Today his new band is called Bell Gardens and I like it too ! It’s Kenneth and his friend Brian McBride from Stars of the Lids;

I finally managed to catch him last summer. I immediately talked to him about this dublab live I had recorded. As he hadn’t heard it in years, he gave me his approbation to re-publish it.
Second cool news, he was totally up for an exclusive 716 mix. It took a bit of time as the man is busy. But it was worth waiting.
The title is so long souncloud couldn’t take it all : « One drunken sailor’s curse from deep psychosis introducing past levels of musical existence » Mix.
This is one stunning psychedelic mix – made with lots of weird tunes he’s been collecting for ages. Here are some years of L.A digging put into one single exclusive odyssey.
Kind of mix you won’t erase first from your hard drive when space will be needed.
