TiED 006 – TiED Down by Mark Archer (Altern-8)

We have a treat for you this week for our TiED Down back to mine blend. A very special guest selection from techno  DJ/Producer Mark Archer and member of the legendary rave act Altern-8 more recently known as Mark II. Mark takes us on an incredible journey of the music and artists that have shaped his life over the years, weaving the magical sounds of the 80′s with the futuristic sounds of detroit techno for our sixth mix for the TiED Down series.

Some words from Mark Archer.

“Nice one to Tim for asking me to do this mix, if a mix is what you can call it… it was an absolute pleasure to do, he did say do an hour if you want but I seem to have got slightly carried away and stopped just short of three hours.

These are tracks that are either ones I grew up with and probably first heard on radio two (at such a young age I had no say in the matter on which station was picked) or tracks I’ve been introduced to by friends or in clubs, all have specific meanings and great memories attached to them, hopefully they may strike a chord…..

Some are influences, some just life long favourites and as I started on a Detroit techno vibe, it was only fitting that I ended that way.”
