The very first mixes that were made under the moniker Fossil Aerosol Mining Project date to January or February of 1986. They were produced on the floor of a 2-room apartment, using three effects pedals (one of which gave a nasty little 9-volt shock), two radio/cassette players (one utilized for its bad source switch), some recordings of a Moog Prodigy made three years earlier, and a Radio Shack four-channel mixer. The result was a series of long, improvised mixes that were soon forgotten, and replaced by very different strategies in the studio.
In February of 2016, in observation of the 30th anniversary of sitting on the floor and receiving minor shocks as we embarked on the Fossil Aerosol project, we created a new, 23-minute extended mix that employs only material recorded and/or mixed during those first winter 1986 sessions. The piece is a 2016 composition, but it is built entirely of 1986 - turned inside out and frontways back 30 years later.
Somehow something more than just a musical experience. Uncanny in a way that remains just outside of my ability to explain properly. I would say this is this the best record yet but all Fossil Aerosol records are great. Nathan Duin
