VA – Casting Shadows: Mick Wills Cuts [CSMW]


The first of a new series of VA releases, Casting Shadows reimagines archival music through the eyes of our favorite DJs. Each volume is overseen by a different selector, inviting us to look through the peephole of their crates. Cutting the ribbon, we invite German luminary Mick Wills. Active over 3 decades, a perennial influence and looming figure across the wave and techno scenes. Wills refashions 3 of his favourites, giving them the trademark ‘Cut’ treatment for tender floors worldwide. The first track sees a crucially overlooked Baby Red Torres number 7” fully expanded to 5 am percussive meltdown business. Next up synth-botherer Paul Nagle sees his early tape emission‘The Mesomeric Effect’ re-cut by cool hand Mick, coming in hot & throbbing in all the right ways. Closing on a dramatic note, Kehrschliefe’s Leonid Brezhnev (previously on Polytechnic Youth) is opened up, ripped apart and smartly re-dressed, oozing class and menace. 3 cuts your way from one of our favourite basement surgeons. Look out for the second volume of Casting Shadows, carefully compiled by an interplanetary presence.
