Hux Flux – Max-Capacitance

by goatranch

As voted “most wanted” by you Goat Ranchers out there, here’s the all-Hux Flux “artist mix” I’d promised back in July. In the three short years that this mix represents – 1998 to 2000 – Hux Flux released some of the most mental and twisted psychedelic trance that had yet to appear on the scene.

Description
Hailing from Sweden, the Hux Flux member roster itself seemed always to have been in flux, with five different members credited in various combinations across four 12″ releases, numerous tracks appearing on compilations, and the classic 1999 album, Cryptic Crunch. Primarily made up of Dennis Tapper and the original three members of Logic Bomb (with Henric Fietz also making appearances), the Hux Flux studio during this period pumped out psychedelia rivaling that which the Koxbox/Psychopod team (see Koxopod) had been putting out a couple of years earlier (albeit in a harder, darker, “tweakier” late-night fashion).

The tracks comprising this mix are mostly from 12″ singles, with a few compilation singles and one album track thrown in. I wanted to stick with a shorter time period with regards to release dates and get the mix length to around 90 minutes so as to possibly offer what a live set might have sounded like “back then”. This is pure speculation, however, as I was sadly never fortunate enough to have witnessed such an event.

Lick the centipede, I always say – and this one will help you get there.

Enjoy! 🙂

    OMG!

    I can hardly believe my ears!

    Hux Flux? Artist mix? On the Goat Ranch as an exclusive?!?

    WOW.

    WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW. Brilliant!

    Absolutely brilliant! Marsh, I don’t know how you do it, what cosmic purse-strings you hold to funnel such talent right here.

    But I dare not question it; we are better for it! I’m happy to live in ignorance of your techniques so long as I get to enjoy the fruits of it!

    Glad you like it, Nutjob! Just to be clear, though, these are “artist” mixes in the respect that I take a bunch of tracks from a single artist, and put a mix together myself – the actual artists themselves don’t have a hand in it. Sorry to disappoint you if I’ve done so, but I want to make it clear that I’m not claiming these are done by the artists themselves…it’s just little ol’ me putting some of my favorites from a single artist together in a mix.

    Oh that’s even better! Hux Flux is a great producer but not a great mixer—whereas you my dear Marsh are exceedingly talented at the fine art of jockeying discs.

    And blending a coherent story out of a single artist’s set of works is no easy task. Working under such restrictions makes for a great challenge.

    No disappointment whatsoever!

    Awww…you’re making me blush. 😉 Thanks for the kind words, NJ – it’s much appreciated!

    Great mix. I never got into Hux Flux back in the days, so this was mostly new to me. There was one track that bothered me a bit in there, relatively early; it had a beeping noise that sounded exactly like the alarm on my watch — completely out of place. Other than that minor nuisance, the mix is delightful, chaotic and entrancing. Good job!

    Quoting spork:
    ‘the mix is delightful, chaotic and entrancing. Good job!’

    I couldn’t agree more. Well said.

    I had such a great time consuming this mix. Thanks!
