A Matter Of Time _ Interview With Neil Birnie

Neil _ Decks _ subsekt 051 Interview

I’m really happy that you wanted to play this stuff for the subsekt mix as PGV’s are incredible. So far ahead of everyone else at the time and a lot of them still sound fresh as fuck. Did you get into them at the time, or were you a late conversion to them? Lawrie has made some incredible music.

Yeah, the mix is all Pounding Grooves vinyl with a few other releases on various labels. Always been a big fan of Lawrie’s music and bought most of the PGV when they were first out, with the outstanding ones recently purchased. I’ve added some links to few tunes that did and didn’t make it onto the mix..

Superb. This will be great Neil. I’d completely forgotten about that one on Hydraulix. I have that one. Unbelievably fucking heavy. The other side was good too if I remember correctly.

Anyway.. People must be buying loads of Big Issues from you cos you’ve been buying a few records recently. Good to see Scotland coming out of the recession Mate! Haha. What have you been getting?

Vinyl has always been a big passion of mine and something I’m only now really getting back into. Been buying a few things of Discogs and various other places. Really into Repitch/3TH at the moment. Fucking love their stuff. But equally, I love a lot of the older techno as well hence buying from Discogs.

Real DJ’s play Vinyl…

That’s fighting talk. Ok.. The end is nigh anyway. Thanks for the chat Neil, looking forward to the mix.






Music production and history are my biggest passions in life. Though people often say that Techno is faceless and should be about the music blah, blah, blah.. I believe in the need to document the people and stories behind it. Techno is a very small world in reality and I think it needs a proper resource. I hope that everyone who is interested in Techno finds this blog accessible in terms of the way that it is written. I personally prefer to hear the artists voice as loud as the music and never enjoy synopsised and pasteurised versions of old conversation; the sort that's peppered with the occasional quote here and there.
