Five years ago today, I made my first Farced blog post after installing wordpress onto srsly.tv. Thinking of things in five year increments is in part a bummer, perhaps due to the fact that it flies so fast! Leading to the inevitable thought of “what have I done in the past FIVE years?!” But this isn’t about me, it’s about this dear little blog that I have held on to for a lustrum. In celebration of this event, I planned to post the mixtape I sent Brent for his birthday on Monday. Despite it being only three days, I was really hoping for him to receive it today so I could officially post the mix to the blog. So dear readers you will have to wait for the official post, however I am including the soundcloud upload of it. So far I’ve gotten a lot of praise for this mix which is a relief because I was not happy with the initial live-mixed recording of this mp3. After five days of listening to it non stop, that has passed. And who cares, really? It is after all, a mixtape live-mixed for one person in mind. Tracklist (as repeatedly requested this week) and full posting to come upon receipt of the mixtape.

Also in quinquennial commemoration of Farced, I plan to live-mix every single Farced mix I have posted into mp3s, as I have promised for years now. The first being the ever popular Ohne Titel mix. It’ll be quite the project but I feel that this is the next phase of things.

In typical Farced fashion, I have included the track “Five Years Life” by Aus Decline as featured on the tirelessly fantastic 1983 Italian minimal compilation First Relation.

Happy Birthday Farced!
