Guest Mix: Franco Cangelli – In Times of Wrapping Paper

Without much fanfare Belgium-based Franco Cangelli has been pumping out great techno and house via his own productions and with the many labels he has been running (Mowar, Nowar and the former Aesthetik imprint he started with DJ Aki) over the past few years. But if you assume that Cangelli is limited to his strengths, think again. He is careful about not getting pigeonholed within a genre and uses his Hybridize series of DJ mixes to prove the point that not all good music comes in neat, easy to use packages, nor should it be re-packaged for consumption that way. The below mix is a strong example of that axiom, flowing from early disco and boogie to Chicago and New York house with aplomb. This, my friends, is what you might call a history lesson. Study up, because class is in session.
