VCA Session 03: Woozyphonics

04 Mar 2008 10:50:00 GMT

Back in the 1980s, when MP3 was a term for a small collective of English politicians, we used to listen to our music on vinyl discs with a central locating hole in the middle. Sometimes these holes were slightly off-centre, and this caused the pitch of the music to fluctuate slowly, simulating a doppler effect. These defective discs became very popular in certain musical circles, and were affectionately called 'woozyphons'. This mix is dedicated to the slightly off-centred and idiosyncratic music of our current demoscene artists.
