OK, one more obituary post. This one about Andrew Weatherall, who passed away recently. I’ve been listening to his show on NTS, Music’s Not For Everyone, on and off for the last couple of years. I can’t say that I liked everything he played, but it was always at least interesting. The Guardian has an obituary and an article listing ten of his greatest tracks. And the NY Times has a short obituary too.
Mixmag has an article abut the “Weatherdrive”, a repository of about 900 hours of Weatherall mixes. I might have to poke around in there at some point. You can find a fair amount of his stuff on Mixclould too.
I don’t have much else to say about him; I mostly just wanted to link to a few resources that look interesting to me. I’m generally more interested in ambient music than dance music, so a lot of stuff that he’s done over the years isn’t really my thing, but I did like his NTS show and some of his remixes are really great.
