Music fan for ages via Best & les Inrocks mags a.o. plus les Nocturnes (with George Lang), Rock à Gogo & "100 Minutes par delà" (Radio 21 back then - respectively with Jacques Depierpont and Tyanne), then Mixmag followed by The Wire Magazine (from which I remain a fan these days, although I still hardly know 10% of what I read in each issue but maybe that's the point), after a stay in London which broadened my musical tastes towards electronic music.Jazz came next via some wide advice of a work collegue who introduced me to Jazz & Jazzman mag.The missing link was Radio Nova, which is to radio what I try to apply to my mixes: remain as open as possible in terms of genres, as opposed to specialized programs and/or radios. Online music (soundcloud, mixcloud, NPR, various blogs) help me as well to try to keep up to what's new & exciting in music these days.

The Wire Tapper – Tribute Mix by Mixsoup

Eclectic Electronic

The first Wire Tapper compilation came along with Issue 170 of The Wire magazine, in April 1998.

Since then, 40 Wire Tapper compilations have been released – Wire Tapper 40 is available to subscribers with The Wire magazine Issue 387 which is out today. I deciced a few weeks back to take the opportunity of the release of Wire Tapper 40 to put together a mix based on selection from Wire Tapper tracks.

It goes for me for The Wire Tapper compilations as for the Wire magazine itself: whenever I receive it, I hardly know 10% about what’s in it but that’s what’s it’s all about, right?:
allow us to make discoveries & getting us to hear about some new musical projects, labels, artists… 32 tracks & 70 minutes later, here is the result.

Thanks a lot to Shane Woolman (The Wire) & Lexis (Music is My Sanctuary) for giving me the chance to put this together, and to Annabel Werbrouck for the nice visual.

Enjoy!
