FACT Mix 59: Subway

I don't normally post mixes before hearing them but I'm just too excited about this. It's different to pretty much everything that’s been posted on this blog, but the tracklist just looks too delicious not to share.
The only Subway tracks I have are from the latest Soul Jazz Singles collection and they definitely stand out from the rest. The sound has so much in common with the electronic music of the 70s, especially stuff from Germany, but still retains a modern feel, and never feels like a pale imitation. Subway's German influence is very obvious here with tracks in this mix from Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Harmonia (which is what their Soul Jazz tracks most sound like) and the more recent sounds of Basic Channel.
They also play a few legendary bands from the noise scene, including personal favourites Wolf Eyes and Black Dice.
They also play a tune from one of the Stereolab/Nurse With Wound collaborations - I never got around to hearing this so I'm pretty excited.
