Silent Servant (Jasper/J Mendez)

ss_cover_09081

THESE mixes are brought to us by J. Mendez (aka Jasper, Silent Servant), Cytrax/Delay label co-founder. Coming from around the corner from me, i learned it all by watching this guy. The Cytrax/Delay label saw releases by (label crew member) Kit Clayton, Safety Scissors, Twerk, Oliver Ho etc.. look for his latest release under the moniker Silent Servant on the label Sandwell District. check here for a sample of that release: here


=======================================================================

Interface, who is looking to celebrate their 7th anniversary, throws some great minimal parties in LA.  Given that I moved out of LA exactly 7 years ago, I’ve never been able to make it to one of their parties, but you can see by their lineups and podcasts that they are worth every penny.  Definitely check their podcast for these mixes and many more.

This night was part of the Sandwell District label tour with sets by Regis and Function as well –  would have LOVED to have been here.  Great set from Silent Servant.

このイベントはSandwell DistrictというラベルのUS tourの一つでした。行きたかったな〜!Silent Servantのセットはばっちりです!

This mix starts off a bit rough, probably first DJ of the evening technical difficulties or what have you, but 10 mins in and its good to go – typical Silent Servant goodness.

このmixの最初の10分はちょっと不安感があるけど、それからSilent Servantぽく、ナイスmixです。

Silent Servant mix from a while back

j mendez

a lowkey nodding mix of some classic minimal goodies (basic channel/chain reaction/maurizio etc..)

j mendez mix

Cytrax Tape

this next mix is really coming out of the vaults. this was recorded from the original Cytrax cassette tape that must have come out around 97? side A Jasper (j. mendez) side B Tang. i must say that it was j. mendez and Tang playing stuff just like this at the SCI-Arc halloween party, and then later, this tape that launched me headlong into a love for techno music. this tape hits hard and in all the right places. the sound is quite low-fi (mind your speakers on the low end), but again, it’s coming from one of the most listened to cassettes that i still have.

the Cytrax tape. Side A: Jasper


live @ re_invent

Re_Invent

(Can’t remember if this mix is from this Re_Invent party or not.  Check here for some other fliers)

The latest great selection of old and new minimal tracks. Absolutely delicious sounds as usual coming from Silent Servant. There are some Silent Servant/Jasper tracks mixed in there as well. Keep an ear out. THANKS again Mr. Mendez.

GIVE UP – Stop Dancing and Cry


give-up

This mix coming from the ever so wonderful, changing the world through sound machine, dublab.  GIVE UP – Stop Dancing and Cry is a dublab sad, slow dance party.  J. Mendez, a frequent dj at the night before moving out of LA, dropped this one for dublab a while back, and I’m bringing it to you all now.  On one of my trips back home I made it out to one of those nights – a tear jerker.  For more sad sad sounds check out the GIVE UP THEMESTREAM.
