I picked up that ‘Auto 17’ 12” these chaps released on Russell Haswell and Mike Harding’s OR label back in 2010 but wasn't aware they'd released anything else. Turns out the following year they released the ‘Summer Mix’ CD on Entr’acte, now pressed onto wax by The Death Of Rave.
The saying goes “You can’t polish a turd”. However ‘Summer Mix is evidence that if you take a whole bunch of turd’s and a computer it is possible to create something really quite beautiful. Computers can do anything these days you see - pretty soon they’ll be living our lives for us and we can all stay in bed wanking. So anyway the turds in this case being a plethora of commercial “dance” music abominations from offenders which read like some summer in Ibiza nightmare; Swedish House Mafia, Roger Sanchez, Princess Superstar, Sonique, Deadmau5, Tiesto etc. What they did was shove all these records into a supercomputer known as ‘The Mainframe’ and pressed the big red ‘Make This Shit Sound Like GAS, Basic Channel / Ultra-chilled Glacial Ambient Glitchy Dub Techno Mode’ button. The results are most pleasant - The sort of thing you could imagine coming out on Mille Plateaux back in the day and thankfully none of the source material is identifiable, so I can put this hammer down.
