CF: how and where was this mix recorded?

At home, after waking up when I had a free day. I mixed it with both vinyl and cd.

CF: is there a concept behind the mix? is it a collection of tracks you’re diggin’ at the moment or is there more to it?

I wanted to do a Dub Techno Mix because I was in the mood for that kind of music. And I love it so much. For me it’s just timeless music. I also used a lot of old tracks.

CF: the music on the mix has a very timeless feel to it; is that your current mood?

It’s not just my current mood. I’ve been in love with Dub Techno for a lot of years. You can always find some dubby passages in my DJ set.

CF: what do you normally listen to at home? which are your top three favorite albums ever?

I listen to lots of Hip Hop, Trip Hop, Downbeat, Easy Listening, Ambient and that kind of stuff.
Wow! my Top 3 favorite Albums ever? That is very difficult. There are sooo many good ones. But maybe:

Herbert with Dani Siciliano – Around the House from 1998.
Aril Brikha’s Deeparture in Time from 2000.
Claro Intelecto’s Neurofibro from 2004.


CF: what can we expect from alessandro crimi in 2010?

Hopefully an Album.
